Before gold went on a run, company financings in the precious metal space picked up, said CEO of Oreninc Kai Hoffmann.
Hoffmann spoke to Kitco in mid-November at the Deutsche Goldmesse show in Frankfurt, Germany. Oreninc tracks financings for juniors and miners.
Early this month, two pieces of news propelled gold higher: headline inflation rose to 6.2%, and the $1 trillion U.S. infrastructure bill was signed into law. Gold had a solid breakout trading above $1,850 an ounce.
Hoffmann said the Oreninc index had a "bit of a rally" with an "uptick in the last three to four weeks. [Financings] have been front running the pop in the gold price."
Hoffmann also weighed in on gold versus bitcoin, noting that the latter is “very volatile.”
“Themes we’ve been hearing [at the conference] is outflows from crypto into gold. Bitcoin [supply] … is limited and gold is not, meaning that bitcoin may pop. It’s very, very volatile. Gold is more stable,” said Hoffmann adding that gold may perform better in a black swan event.
