Trading Summary Notes for Thursday, 4/11/2019

  • After the strong run up recently, BITCOIN and ETH succumbed to some profit taking today. Nothing goes straight up and this was a slight pullback
  • BTC and ETH (most cryptos) have turned and if anyone missed the rally (unless you follow us) getting a dip to buy is a great opportunity
  • How about this; buy BTC and ETH with a sell stop 10% lower. Risk 10% to possibly make…….a lot more
  • With our next near term target for BTC at $6,500 expect ETH to see $190-$195
  • GOLD hit some big selling (profit taking……again) as the UK got a reprieve to finalize a Brexit deal till Oct 31. Kick that can further down the road
  • The near term reprieve alleviates some fear of a hard exit, meaning GOLD profit taking
  • GOLD dips are a buying opportunity and support around $1,285-$1,290. Upside target still $1,400
  • Again, to sum up, near term targets;   BITCOIN $6,500     ETH $190-195     GOLD $1,400

Current trading positions; LONG BITCOIN, ETH AND GOLD
