  • The cryptos (BTC and ETH) and GOLD seem to have found some solid footing after a short pullback
  • To put numbers on it; BITCOIN firm at $3,800+/-, ETH $130+/- and GOLD $1,280+/-
  • If (when) BITCOIN pushes through $3,900 (tomorrow/weekend?) a run to the $4,500 resistance level should be next. A break through of $4,500 should take BTC to $6,500
  • ETH is just following in BTC’s footsteps. When BTC gets to resistance at $4,500 ETH should be $150. If BITCOIN gets to our next target of $6,500, ETH should see $190-$195
  • Hmmmmm! GOLD pulled back on dollar rally and easing China/US trade differences. BUT, strong dollar today didn’t hurt Gold. that’s positive
  • GOLD’S long term up trend is intact. Near term target for GOLD is $1,400. Buy the dips
  • Way too much going on (positive) in the digital asset/crypto sector to dent the potential upside in BITCOIN, etc. GOLD, gotta have it

Current trading positions; LONG BITCOIN, ETH AND GOLD
