Trading Summary Notes for Sunday, 10/28/2018

  • Going nowhere, that’s the story of BITCOIN and ETH. All the “action” is in the equity markets.
  • Dollar strength is being blamed for the equity weakness BUT not affecting GOLD like a few weeks ago. Uncertainty and inflation fears helping GOLD
  • BITCOIN seems to have found a ‘home’ at $6,400 +/- area. Pausing for the next move up?
  • ETH seems the $200 +/- area is a good place. Basing for a move higher?
  • Very positive risk/reward for buying BTC and ETH
  • BITCOIN downside support at $6,000, upside target $8,500
  • ETH downside at $185-$190, upside target $300
  • GOLD looks to have broken out of long time $1,200 +/- area
  • GOLD upside target $1,350. Yes, that’s $1,350. Expect some “backing and filling” but buy the dips
  • Long term bullish on BITCOIN and GOLD. Short neutral bullish on ETH
