SEC Says ‘NO’ to Bitcoin ETF. Wild Ride After Announcement.


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, 3/10/17:

  • SEC rejects bitcoin ETF citing lack of regulation. Exchanges have no regulations in place to enforce any surveillance violations.
  • Exchanges can’t regulate a product that doesn’t exist either.
  • Bitcoin price hits $1325 before announcement……….right in middle of my $1300-$1350 upside target range
  • Bitcoin price drops to low of $1025 after announcement………….lower then my buying range of $1100-$1150. Oops, my bad. Still believe the dip should be bought.
  • Short term trades; Buy $1050-$1100, upside short term target still $1300-$1350.
  • Long term bullish on bitcoin
  • Gold………significant downside risk still exists
  • LONG Bitcoin/SHORT Gold
  • More details on March 9 Bitcoin/Gold notes
