What's the Best Performing Asset of 2021 (YTD)?

By Biz Wisdom | Crypto Daily FX | 20 Jun 2021

In a follow-up to a similar previous post, I thought it was time to analyze which asset is performing the best so far in 2021. I compared Bitcoin as the sole crypto against the S&P, Dow Jones, NASDAQ, Gold, and Silver. The results are below:

3 unexpected observations:

  • TradFi stock indicies S&P, Dow Jones, and NASDAQ all performed very similarly, differing no more than 2% YTD.
  • Gold and silver have actually performed negative in 2021 YTD, with silver posting -7% and gold down nearly -10%.
  • The US dollar (brown line) trading steadily around +2.68%, offering little upside as always and, of course, rapidly devaluing in the face of double-digit inflation.


Does any of this surprise you? What surprises you the most?
