Trading Summary Notes for Thursday, 9/27/2018

  • Going nowhere! BITCOIN and ETH only add a few dollars
  • I AM QUOTING MYSELF FROM YESTERDAY;    “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
  • The dollar rallied sharply and GOLD dropped sharply
  • Expectations of more interest hikes makes the dollar stronger………and GOLD weaker
  • Breaking support at $1,190 puts GOLD in a more negative position. Next support should be $1,175-$1,180
  • Long term bullish on BITCOIN and GOLD. Short term bullish on ETH
