What we’ve been watching in markets – Short sellers, Gold & Bitcoin

In by EquityMatesLeave a Comment

There’s been plenty happening in markets recently, and even with 2 episodes a week we haven’t had a chance to discuss it all. So in this episode we catch up on a few topics we’ve had our eye on. This includes changes in our personal investing journeys, new products for investors we’re trying and big changes in the world of finance.


In this episode we discuss:

  • The recent performance of the price of gold
  • The difference between paper gold and physical gold
  • Why gold is a counter-cyclical asset, and why that is important
  • CommBank’s new micro-investing app Pocket (https://www.commsec.com.au/pocket)
  • Bitcoin’s revival
  • A few thoughts on Finance Twitter
  • A brokerage platform Bryce is trialling with an interesting new feature
  • Rural Funds Group’s (ASX: RFF) busy week on the back of a report from an American short seller

(As well as a brief commiseration about our footy teams)
