Trading Summary Notes for Monday, 3/12/2018

  • BITCOIN gets solid weekend buying, pushes well above $9K
  • Selling returns pushing bitcoin down to just under $9K, basically unchanged from Friday
  • Seems bitcoin has a large seller that sells into rallies. Japan whale??
  • Chatter of “new” opinions of a bitcoin/stock market correlation are very far fetched
  • Bitcoin rallies may be muted until a large seller is complete. When?? No guess.
  • GOLD adds $1 in super quiet trade
  • Gold seems to be stuck in a very tight trading range…..$1,310-$1,340
  • Still very bullish on gold
  • Gold is getting ready to challenge $1,400……………at some point. $1,350 first
  • Top 2018 “HOT” picks……… long both BITCOIN & GOLD
