Gold futures gained on Thursday as global socio-economic tension continue to linger. The price bounced back above $1700 after a two-day fall as the tension between the U.S. and China along with riots in the states have continued to create a tensed environment.
The stocks opened slightly lower (negative 0.2%) today for the first time since the #BlackLivesMatter protest began in the U.S. Tone Vays, derivatives and crypto trader noted in his daily trading update,
Stock market is down, gold is up. They are acting with a somewhat negative correlation
Moreover, it is more than just an intuitive correlation as the naysayers have been criticising the stock market uptrend for quite some time.

Bitcoin also opened positive today despite the severe crash from $10,000 on Tuesday. BTC price has corrected 60% to the upside from lows at 9135 as the price dipped from $10,200 in a matter of minutes. Crypto analytics research firm, Coinmetrics noted in its update,

This the longest time since the 2017 peak in crypto markets, that the correlation between gold and bitcoin has been positive (though only weekly correlated.) Moreover, Bitcoin investors seem to be separating themselves away from the risk component which is evident in the bullish sentiments despite the volatility on Tuesday.
Nevertheless, for the ones who have been watching the space for a while know better than to fight the feds. The $7 trillion dollar injections have pushed to stock markets at par with the highs before the crash. Although the gains in the stock market are lower than Bitcoin and gold, at the moment, the momentum of equities is with the buyers as well.
