Trading Summary Notes for Thursday, 5/2/17:

  • Bitcoin moves up sharply to new all time highs
  • Bitcoin is right in the center of my near term target area…..$1425-$1475

  • Short term bitcoin traders may want to take some profits OR place some sell stops
  • Bitcoin sell stops should be placed at $1350-$1375
  • Gold is trending DOWN. No reason to own it.
  • Gold is no longer the safe haven it once was.
  • Should Gold close below $1250 shorts can be placed. Move to $1175-$1190 expected.
