Trading Summary Notes for Wednesday, 10/3/2018

  • A slightly down day. BTC and ETH drift lower while GOLD drops back below $1,200
  • Dull trading and nothing has changed
  • Looks like a very quiet and very solid floor is being put in place in the cryptos
  • Gearing up for a big 4th quarter end of year rally? YES!
  • BITCOIN downside support at $6,000, upside target $8,500
  • ETH downside at $200, upside target $300
  • GOLD fails to hold above $1,200…….again. Just back and forth trading
  • GOLD under $1,200 is a super long term risk/reward play. Support at $1,175-$1,180 with an upside target of $1,350
  • GOLD closing above $1,210 would be very positive. That is previous resistance
  • Long term bullish on BITCOIN and GOLD. Short term bullish on ETH
