Trading Summary Notes for Tuesday, 10/9/2018

  • Going nowhere and going nowhere slowly. That’s BITCOIN, ETH & GOLD
  • 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
  • BITCOIN downside support at $6,000, upside target $8,500
  • ETH downside at $200, upside target $300
  • After a huge drop yesterday 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
  • Support at $1,175-$1,180
  • Long term bullish on BITCOIN and GOLD. Short term bullish on ETH
