Doug Pollitt: What crypto-euphoria says about gold


9:48a ET Sunday, September 17, 2017

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

In his September market letter, Doug Pollitt of Pollitt & Co. in Toronto identifies bitcoin's weaknesses and concludes that the crypto-currency is useful mainly for speculation even as it indicates the growing madness of the world financial system.

So what is a reliable store of wealth? Pollitt writes: "If you can't bury it in your backyard, the truly orthodox among us aren't interested."

Pollitt's letter is headlined "What Crypto-Euphoria Says About Gold" and with his kind permission it's posted in PDF format at GATA's internet site here:
