Trading Summary Notes for Wednesday, 3/7/2018

  • BITCOIN weakens a bit more on “worries” SEC is looking at regulating crypto platforms
  • Regulating (in some form) would be a plus for bitcoin. Regulating exchanges brings credibility and acceptance
  • Some regulation will be BULLISH for bitcoin (cryptocurrencies)
  • Bitcoin volatility settling down. Markets becoming more efficient
  • Looking at $12K-$12,500 as a resistance area
  • Looking at $10K-$10,500 as a support area
  • GOLD gives back some of yesterday’s sharp gains on tariff’s compromise talk
  • Tariffs and inflation fears make for a very potent bullish case for gold
  • Gold is getting ready to challenge $1,400……………at some point. $1,350 first
  • Top 2018 “HOT” picks……… long both BITCOIN & GOLD
