  • It looks like the buying in BITCOIN is still the thing to do. Seems a lot of potential buyers got caught watching and waiting at lower levels and now are missing out (not a good feeling)
  • Lets be clear, the lower $3,000 level in BITCOIN was the bottom. The much anticipated “next move up” has begun. Buy the dips
  • Following BTC, ETHEREUM is moving up nicely. With our next near term target for BTC at $6,500 expect ETH to see $190-$195
  • With more and more investors coming to realize BITCOIN may be a solid “store of value” larger buyers are emerging to diversify their holdings…….including even central banks(?)
  • BUT, don’t forget or dismiss GOLD. Centuries of the yellow metal’s acceptance will not disappear
  • GOLD dips are a buying opportunity and support around $1,285-$1,290. Upside target still $1,400
  • Again, to sum up, near term targets;   BITCOIN $6,500     ETH $190-195     GOLD $1,400
  • STAY LONG AND STRONG! The bull is back

Current trading positions; LONG BITCOIN, ETH AND GOLD
