Gold and silver are bullish again. While the two precious metals provided investors with returns of 20% in each of the past two years, the trend stalled somewhat from August onwards. The correction was due to brightening sentiment regarding the Corona pandemic, significant successes in vaccine research, and the voting out of the Donald Trump administration in the United States. What remains, however, is the sharp rise in sovereign debt issues and extremely low interest rates.Read

Every day, a single person generates about 1.7 MB of data. We are creating and publishing more information than at any other time in human history. At this rate, we can expect the Big Data market to reach 40 trillion gigabytes by the end of the year. That's more data than most of us can even begin to imagine. It includes everything from the pictures you upload to social media, to the comments we post somewhere and everything in between. A certain amount of this data won't be useful to anyone. But there is a lot of valuable data out there, especially if companies evaluate and use it commercially. Social media is a mecca for data collectors - used for credit scores, user profiles and advertising. Data protection has now been regulated by law - but most users give their data voluntarily.Read

Small clearance sale! On wild vaccine Monday, the price of gold fell nearly USD 100 but has so far held at the critical support level of USD 1,850 after Pfizer and BioNTech announced a potential vaccine against the COVID-19 virus. Many investors hold gold and silver (also beaten by 7%) as crisis protection. This can go wrong in the short term - but in the long term, it is exciting.
"The virus may disappear, but that doesn't mean that economic growth will turn around on a cent," said Ole Hansen, Head of Commodity Strategy at Saxo Bank. "A lot of damage has been done that cannot be easily repaired or will take a long time to fix". That's just the way it is - COVID-19 changes a lot of things, especially the risk mentality of people. The economies have to go in new directions in 2021/22.Read
