Trading Summary Notes for Thursday, 10/4/2018

  • The ping pong trading continues. Up-down, up-down, etc going nowhere
  • BITCOIN seems to be using $6,500 as a fulcrum, trading above and below. How much longer?
  • BITCOIN downside support at $6,000, upside target $8,500
  • ETH holding solidly above $200 and following BITCOIN
  • ETH downside at $200, upside target $300
  • Gearing up for a big 4th quarter end of year rally? YES!
  • And then there’s GOLD. Seems $1,200 is the fulcrum for the metal
  • Higher rates and strong dollar can’t break GOLD; Inflation fears can’t get a big upside breakout
  • GOLD closing above $1,210 would be very positive. That is previous resistance
  • 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
  • Long term bullish on BITCOIN and GOLD. Short term bullish on ETH
