Trading Summary Notes for Monday, 2/11/2019

  • BITCOIN and ETH get a nice big weekend jump on bullish analyst comments. People starting to take note that the $3,400 BITCOIN area looks like selling exhaustion
  • ETH beginning to look attractive and the $105 area looks pretty firm
  • For both BITCOIN and ETH there is a lot of base building going on
  • So, lets just say, $3,400 +/- for BTC and $105 +/_ for ETH is VERY attractive long term
  • Probably NOT the time to be short cryptos. Upside spikes can be very hazardous to your trading account
  • BITCOIN and ETH upside “explosions” will be impressive
  • Today’s dollar strewth put a little softness in GOLD. Any dollar rallies create a buying opportunity for GOLD
  • Once again, buying the dips in GOLD is the strategy of 2019. Near term target is $1,400
  • LONG TERM BULLISH ON BITCOIN AND GOLD. NEUTRAL ON ETH (but getting more “interested”)

Current trading positions; LONG BITCOIN AND GOLD
