Trading Summary Notes – Updated for Tuesday, 5/14/2019

  • SOLD BTC Tuesday Morning (5/14/19) AT $8142-see profit in chart below
  • BITCOIN has a fast and furious weekend rally…….up $1,200 since last Friday. Oh, and it was doing quite well over the last several weeks too
  • Blowing through any and all upside price targets, BITCOIN is now in a parabolic state. Does this make BTC a flight to safety just like GOLD as global trade tensions heat up? Looks like it
  • So, now what? I have been calling for months for a move to $6,500 and…….well, that looked high last week and now it looks…..dumb. Things change  fast. Might be a good time to start taking some profits……or use protective sell stops. Remember $20,000???
  • Even ETH caught the rally bug hitting $200. Keep in mind, ETH is a laggard and not as strong as many would like to believe. Caution is called for.
  • Both BITCOIN and ETH are in FOMO mode. I am taking some crypto money off the table…..slowly
  • GOLD has a hug “pop” up to $1,300. Its only the beginning. Target still $1,400
  • As I have been saying for months, the ‘action’ in GOLD looks just like the ‘action’ in BITCOIN months ago around $3,500. Then….the explosion. Don’t be left out
  • Good GOLD support around $1, 275-$1,280

Current trading positions; LONG GOLD (updated 5/14)
