Trading Summary Notes for Monday, 5/7/2018

  • $10,000 proved a big wall for BITCOIN over the weekend. Failed on THAT attempt, fell back Sunday and Monday
  • BITCOIN came under pressure as Warren Buffet, Charlie Munger and Bill Gates voiced their opinions on TV this morning
  • The “older” trio are in the minority and still keeping next price target at $12,000-$12,500
  • Goldman Sachs opening a bitcoin trading desk is a huge plus
  • GOLD attempting to build a base above $1,300
  • Inflation fears will heat up as wage gains begin become more prevalent
  • Uncertainty in gold trade while waiting for President Trump to announce decision on Iran nuclear deal
  • A close above $1,320 would bring in buyers for a move back to $1,350-$1,355
