  • The BITCOIN & ETH carnage continues. After seemingly finding a “safe zone” at $3,500-$3,700 BITCOIN decided to just go lower
  • And, at the same time, GOLD has been super strong just breaking above $1,300
  • So now (perhaps a bit tardy) it dawns on folks to sell BITCOIN and buy GOLD!
  • I remember back in August of 2016 when I began writing “BITCOIN vs GOLD” on a daily basis I took the opposite; Buy BITCOIN sell GOLD. Hmmmmm!
  • So, maybe its reversed and there will be a BIG burst in GOLD ($1,400?) and a flush out in BITCOIN ($2,000?)
  • Coming from someone (me) who has been wrong on BITCOIN (at least the past couple months) BUT totally right on GOLD, I’m “dazed and confused”
  • GOLD is in a new long term bull market so buying the dips is the strategy of 2019. Near term target is $1,400
  • BITCOIN? Well, it sure looks extra soft
