Trading Summary Notes for Monday, 8/27/2018

  • BITCOIN, ETH and GOLD all have a solid weekend. BTC and GOLD the leaders
  • BITCOIN asserting itself as the leader of all crypto. Back to $8,500?
  • ETH barely moves. Dead money for now. Interest in ETH low
  • GOLD firmly above $1,200. Not backing off. Looks like GOLD has turned. $1,250?
  • Talk of inflation picking up and realization the dollar can’t go up forever helps GOLD
  • Long term bullish on BITCOIN and GOLD. Neutral on ETH.
