Trading Summary Notes for Sunday, 11/25/2018

  • SOLD BITCOIN $4,281, 11/23/18;  SOLD ETH $124.85, 11/23/18
  • BITCOIN and ETH continue to sink into oblivion. Seems a free fall is under way
  • ETH trades below $100 briefly. BITCOIN heading to $3,000?
  • Why? (see this article on FintekNews). Is there a bottom? Of course there is a bottom, but just where is still in doubt.
  • Today (Sunday) the bottom is obviously closer. Expect nothing but super negative news on the crypto sector the next week or so. Calls for BTC $2,000, $1,000 and even $-0- will be the headlines. Lots of “I told you so’s” will abound.
  • When that happens it WILL be the bottom. Expect a bit more panic
  • Time to buy when there is “blood in the streets” and there is lots of blood.
  • GOLD is super solid. A new long term move seems to have begun
  • Support at $1,195-$1,200……upside target remains $1,350 (yes, $1,350)
  • Still long term bullish on BITCOIN, GOLD and ETH
