Trading Summary Notes for Wednesday, 9/26/2018

  •  The Yo Yo movements continue in the cryptos. Today reverses yesterday
  • BITCOIN adds $75, ETH adds $5
  • Why? WTF? Once again, I honestly have no idea. Cryptos (specifically BTC & ETH) are suffering from general lack of interest. Negative news (hacks, manipulation, etc.) brings in some sellers, dip buyers then step in. That’s it…
  • BITCOIN downside support at $6,000, upside target $8,500
  • ETH downside at $200, upside target $300
  • GOLD drops $6 on Fed raising interest rates, back below $1,200. Fed move was totally expected and a few more rate rises have been anticipated. Again, WTF? Very fickle
  • Inflation is picking up and tougher trade talk should help 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
