Trading Summary Notes for Tuesday, 12/11/2018

  • Stating the obvious, BITCOIN and ETH are wrapping up the year with a whimper and ending on a very soft note……….and a HUGE decline
  • So is this the end of the year for BTC and ETH (all cryptos)? All the weakness of late may be because every crypto bull is just ‘lightening up’ their positions
  • To be blunt; Every BITCOIN bull has been WRONG! And, the bigger the bull the more wrong they were. Looks like everyone with crypto positions is throwing in the towel
  • WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR is the new battle cry, and with everybody getting out (and depressed) next year probably will be “the year”
  • In the meantime…….If you are bullish (I am) buy some BITCOIN here and add to it on a dip, averaging in with stops at $3,250
  • GOLD is holding recent strong gains and poised to move higher
  • Possible near term resistance around $,1250-$1,255
  • GOLD continues to look super positive breaking out to the upside (as predicted). It is becoming more and more evident that GOLD bottomed just under $1,200 and is in the early stages of a long term bull market
  • Upside target remains $1,350 (yes, $1,350)
  • Long term bullish on BITCOIN, GOLD.  Now neutral on ETH

Current trading positions; LONG BITCOIN AND GOLD
