Market Movers Episode #21: Bitcoin vs. Gold, Fed decision

Tension is mounting towards the US Fed decision  that just became even more interesting. Is stimulus  finally set to end in the world’s No. 1 economy? The question of stimulus is also very relevant to the No. 2 economy, China, after the very balanced GDP number. And, we begin with a discussion about  bitcoin, by placing it in the ring against gold.

Welcome to a new episode of  Market Movers, presented by Lior Cohen of Trading NRG and Yohay Elam of Forex Crunch.You are welcome to listen, subscribe and  provide feedback.

The topics:

  1. Bitcoin vs. Gold: Is  Bitcoin a commodity or rather a currency? Is it safer or less safe than other financial instruments. How does bitcoin compare with gold?  Bitcoin is not the new kid on the block anymore, but is it mature enough? We dive into this.
  2. FOMC Meeting: Bullard dropped about a bomb suggesting not to end QE. Is this really on agenda? And what about that “considerable time” phrase that markets are obsessing  about?  We provide a full preview of the October 29th event that  is always interesting and just became even more volatile.
  3. China: The world’s No. 2 economy reported an interesting GDP number. What does this mean for  global growth? Is the number just too balanced?

After taking a short course about forex. Like many forex traders, I've earned a significant share of my knowledge the hard way. Macroeconomics, the impact of news on the ever-moving currency markets and trading psychology have always fascinated me.
