From lowest to highest % gains:

NASDAQ: 94.6%

Silver: 116%

What conclusions can we draw?

1. Gold is not a hedge/flight to safety (but we already knew that).

2. This was a V-shaped recovery

3. Small-caps outperformed large-caps -- this applies to stocks AND cryptos.

4. Crypto benefits significantly more from this global inflationary environment than stocks.

5. Bitcoin performs well; legitimate altcoins (ETH) perform better.
