Doubts on SEC ETF Approval Cause Bitcoin Selloff


Bitcoin vs Gold CME
Bitcoin IS the New Gold
In celebration of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s (CME) launch of two new bitcoin indexes (BRR & BRTI), FintekNews is comparing the price of bitcoin and gold on a daily basis.

Trading Notes for Tuesday, 3/7/17:

  • Bitcoin selloff due to nervousness over SEC decision on bitcoin ETF; due March 11
  • Near term price target of $1300-$1350 met; now resistance
  • On further weakness, buy $1050-$$1100; long term upside intact
  • Gold makes good hedge with big downside expected; gold price action terrible
  • LONG Bitcoin/SHORT Gold
  • Spread working perfectly, stay the course
