Trading Summary Notes for Thursday, 11/15/19

  • BITCOIN UNDER PRESSURE! Slowly but surely BTC has been (still is) sinking and breaking down. WHY??
  • Well obviously there are more sellers than buyers currently. With that sarcastic remark let’s speculate on why.
  • Blame the constantly rising equity markets with traders allocating funds to stocks and out of the crypto markets
  • Blame yearend profit taking…………or tax loss selling (depends on where you got in)
  • Blame all the new BITCOIN futures markets for putting pressure via short selling
  • Blame too many bulls (me too)
  • In other words, there are many ways to try and blame the weakness. But, down is down
  • Being long term bullish (its worked well for years and years) on the future of BITCOIN/ETH I believe adding to positions on weakness will be rewarded.
  • Can we see $7,500? Maybe. Remember, when things heat up you will either be in…..or chasing.
  • Because of the price, ETH just can’t drop as much as BTC so it looks like its holding up better. Actually, it is.
  • Let’s say ETH around $155-$165 is super attractive. Of course, ETH follows BTC
  • After dancing around above and below the $1,500 number looks like GOLD is shaking some long holders out. Let’s say $1,450-$1,460 is solid to place to be a buyer for next move up.
  • Slight uptick in interest rates pushed GOLD down as did positive U.S/China trade talks
  • Ignore the rhetoric. Forward looking, inflation seems to be on the rise and geopolitical risks are only getting stronger. Positive for GOLD
  • GOLD? Stay long. Super powerful move under way. $1,650-$1,700 next target. Buy the dips.

Current trading positions:  LONG  BITCOIN & GOLD
