Trading Summary Notes for Thursday, 10/19/2017

  • BITCOIN rockets up as a “risk on” trade. PBOC (Peoples Bank of China) makes scary markets comments
  • CORRELATION? Equities sell off, bitcoin rallies. Markets firm up, bitcoin softens
  • Looks like (for now) bitcoin is trading like a flight to safety
  • Bitcoin traders; Sell the ‘pop’, buy the ‘drop’. Long term traders……….yawn
  • GOLD rallies back up toward $1,300. That’s resistance now.
  • Same comment above apply to gold
  • May test the $1,250-$1,255 area. Lets be a buyer in that area
