Trading Summary Notes for Sunday, 12/9/2018

  • BITCOIN and ETH stage a nice weekend rally. In late Sunday trading the rally continues with both BTC & ETH getting back to roughly where they were last Thursday
  • Another bottom? Picking bottoms is extremely difficult (especially when you are bullish) but that bottom is down here somewhere for BITCOIN. Sorry, BTC is NOT going to zero
  • ETH and other cryptos need BITCOIN to be the leader to advance any gains, otherwise they will continue to drift lower
  • End of the year rally for BITCOIN?  Still thinking YES.Maybe not for ETH!  BITCOIN upside could see $6,500 and ETH……..?????????
  • If you are bullish (I am) buy some BITCOIN here and add to it on a dip, averaging in with stops at $3,250
  • When (IF) BITCOIN begins a new move higher it will not be easy to get in. You will either be ‘in’ or ‘out’ (and watching)
  • GOLD is beginning a new long term move higher. Buy the dips in GOLD
  • 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
