Trading Summary Notes for Thursday, 1/10/2019

  • The thoughts of BITCOIN holding the $4,000 round number are being tossed out………..again. Bulls (me) are finding this all very frustrating;
  • BTC is off around 10% the past few days. There are no good reasons or theories that I can surmise. (more sellers than buyers?);
  • BITCOIN now testing previous lows. Should BTC break $3,400 next stop could be $2,800-$2,850. Another upside move above $4,000 should bring in buyers for a move to $6,500;
  • ETH getting hit harder than BITCOIN. It will be dragged UP with BITCOIN but sink lower and faster than BITCOIN on the way down;
  • A retest of $100 may be coming. Neutral on ETH;
  • GOLD continues pulling back from the $1,300 level;
  • A slight pullback in GOLD to $1,255-$1,265 would not be unexpected. Buy the dips;
  • A close above $1,305 would be very bullish. Upside target is still $1,400;
  • LONG TERM BULLISH ON BITCOIN AND GOLD. NEUTRAL ON ETH.

Current trading positions; LONG BITCOIN AND GOLD
