After months of hearing how inflation is transitory, it is becoming clear to just about everyone that inflation is anything but transitory, and is here to stay“–Paul Ebeling

The latest inflation data showed that prices rose nearly 1% month to month, and over 6% year on year. That is the highest inflation rate in decades, and it is not the end of rising inflation.

Markets are responding Bullishly.

As you might expect, gold and silver saw significant price growth in the immediate aftermath of the CPI announcement. That is an indicator that markets are becoming aware of the reality of rising inflation and of the role that gold and silver can play as an inflation hedge.

At this point there is no telling how high prices will rise and how long we will see inflation spiraling Northward.

Gold futures settled $15.60 higher (+0.8%) at $1,863.90/oz, marking a 6th-straight gainer, and the US Dollar Index is up about +0.3% at $95.14

On the Crypto front

Ethereum has played 2nd fiddle to Bitcoin, but there are lots of reasons to be excited about its future. With experts across the fintech landscape expecting big things from the cryptocurrency in the coming months and yrs, so…

The Big Q: Will ETH finally turn the tables on BTC?

The Big A: According to a Finder report consisting of 50 fintech specialists, ETH is expected to reach a value of $5,114 by the end of Y 2021. The findings from the Ethereum price predictions report forecast the average price expectancy of ETH over the rest of Ys 2021, 2025 and 2030.

Although a value of $5,114 seems to be a significant leap from its current price of around $4,000, it pales in significance compared to Y 2025, in which experts anticipate a price of around $15,364 per coin. The cost of Ethereum by Y 2030 is even more mind-boggling, with $50,788 expected to be reached by the end of the decade.

Finder’s data also suggests that 63% of panelists believe now is a good time to buy Ether, while just 9% feel as though it is worth selling. Aside from the topic of buying and selling, 28% of those surveyed believe it’s time to ‘hodl.’

GBITS continues it march North with $$400/each in clear view, currently it is trading at $381.79836 having marked $391.10 earlier in the day.
