Bitcoin Runs Laps Around Precious Metals, Nearly 40% Gains Since Feb. 1

The digital gold standard known as Bitcoin has shown impressive strength in the mist of the recent drop in all precious metals.

Gold lost 40 dollars in a 24 hour period to close for the weekend at $1610.30. This loss reflects a 2.4% drop. Silver had a more significant drop falling from $31.00 to close at $29.80 dollars an ounce.

This reflects a 3.4% drop in the common man’s gold. These drops have occurred despite, as Harvey Organ reports, the gold demand for the quarter was 6% higher year-on-year at $66.2bn marking the highest ever Q4 total and driving annual demand in 2012 to a record value of US$236.4bn.

So if in the final Quarter of 2012, gold demand was 6% higher than it was in the
final quarter of 2011, how are we experiencing these rather significant waterfalls in
precious metals?

There is much speculation of course that investors are cautious
as they await the outcome of the up and coming G20 Finance ministers and central
bank governors meeting being held in Moscow.
