  • Trading Notes for Tuesday, 3/1/17:Bitcoin continuing it’s run. Near term target $1300-$1350
  • Gold seems locked around the $1250 area. Seems more downside risk than upside reward.
  • If long bitcoin for a trade you may want to lighten up before SEC decision on bitcoin ETF’s (3/11)
  • Long term it is ALWAYS, LONG Bitcoin/SHORT Gold.
