Trading Summary Notes for Wednesday, 10/10/2018

  • Big U.S. equity market selloff has no effect on BITCOIN, ETH or GOLD
  • Not much change from yesterday. Cryptos in general are suffering from lack of interest even though the crypto fundamentals keep improving
  • Gearing up for a big 4th quarter end of year rally? May be a safe bet…….and profitable
  • BITCOIN downside support at $6,000, upside target $8,500
  • ETH downside at $200, upside target $300
  • After a “sloppy” morning of minor moves, GOLD holds support and finishes higher on the day
  • Strong dollar and thoughts (or fears) of higher interest rates push GOLD lower, BUT just under $1,200 has strong support. Buy the dips
  • Higher rates rattle equities in the U.S. BUT GOLD has been pricing all that in for weeks
  • Support at $1,175-$1,180. Upside target $1,350
  • Long term bullish on BITCOIN and GOLD. Short term bullish on ETH
