Trading Summary Notes for Thursday, 9/13/2018

  • Looks like Michael Novogratz read yesterday’s “Taylor Report” calling the bottom on cryptocurrencies. Nice company we keep
  • BITCOIN rallies above $6,500. Trading a little lower in late hours
  • BITCOIN downside support at $6,000, upside target $8,500
  • ETHER jumps up over $200. Was $170 + – the bottom? I say yes
  • Upside target $300 for ETH
  • GOLD follows yesterday’s big jump up by testing $1,210, can’t penetrate and turns lower on the day
  • A solid close above $1,210 should bring in buyers; target $1,250. So far, $1,190-$1,195 is holding. After that $1,175-$1,180 is support
  • Have been VERY bullish on GOLD and looks good
  • Long term bullish on BITCOIN and GOLD. Short term bullish on ETH.
