Trading Summary Notes for Monday, 10/8/2018

  • Slow quasi-holiday trading day in U.S. (Columbus Day) but BITCOIN moves back over $6,600; ETH adds a few dollars to over $225
  • A few more steady up days for BITCOIN and the upside momentum should pick up. Same for ETH
  • To many slow “blah” days. Time to get busier? Gearing up for a big 4th quarter end of year rally?
  • BITCOIN downside support at $6,000, upside target $8,500
  • ETH downside at $200, upside target $300
  • GOLD dumps $16.00
  • Support at $1,175-$1,180
  • Long term bullish on BITCOIN and GOLD. Short term bullish on ETH
