Trading Summary Notes for Wednesday, 1/10/2018

  • BITCOIN sinks lower in lack of interest trade. Buyers at the Consumer Electronics Show?
  • Seems bitcoin is in a “dip/rise”………”dip/rise”…………type of trade. No strong reason to buy
  • Regulators “jaw boning” (or, scare talking) to shake out speculation? Could be.
  • Basically, bitcoin buyers are not rushing in. Momentum is resting
  • Price target on next big move…….$30K
  • GOLD jumps up in the morning on inflation talk/fears. Settles back rest of the day
  • Rise in interest rates keeps gold buyers a bit passive. Inflation heating up?
  • A big story for 2018? Inflation led by strong wage increases. Very bullish for gold
  • Looking at $1,350 near term
  • Top 2018 “HOT” picks………..both BITCOIN & GOLD
