Trading Summary Notes for Tuesday, 9/25/2018

  • Up down, up down! The Yo Yo movements continue in the cryptos
  • BITCOIN sinks $200, ETH drops a big $25
  • Why? Honestly, I have no idea. Cryptos (specifically BTC & ETH) are suffering from general lack of interest. Negative news (hacks, etc.) brings in some sellers, dip buyers then step in. That’s it…
  • ETH downside at $200, upside target $300
  • BITCOIN downside support at $6,000, upside target $8,500
  • GOLD has fallen in love with $1,200…… or minus a few dollars. Trading off dollar and watching interest rates (Fed announces tomorrow another rate increase)
  • Inflation is picking up and tougher trade talk helping GOLD
  • Great buying opportunity for GOLD. $1,190-$1,195 held support, upside target $1,245-$1,250. GOLD needs a solid close above $1,210
  • Long term bullish on BITCOIN and GOLD. Short term bullish on ETH.
