The gold reaching its all-time high signifies a great deal for cryptocurrencies as well. Today, Bitcoin achieved its 2023 peak while the spot gold price also surpassed $2074, reaching an all-time high. What was the reason for this rise? What does it mean for investors?
Why Is Gold Rising?
After closing seven consecutive months in the red from April to October last year, gold began to recover rapidly in 2023. Although it experienced a slight decline in October, it once again crossed the $2000 mark and today it has risen above $2074. One of the main reasons was that the Fed had reached the peak and was starting to count down the days to a descent.
Cryptocurrencies have also rebounded strongly in 2023 despite their unique challenges. Today’s announcements by Powell and the positive data for risk markets over the past weeks indicate that the recovery in both assets could continue in the coming months.
Bitcoin and Gold, which react similarly to the decisions of the US Fed, suggest that stronger rallies could occur as rate cuts begin next year.
