  • BITCOIN’S powerful rally continues and shows no signs of slowing. Up over 10% over the weekend
  • Now, after reaching $11,000, the buyers rest and the sellers……..just aren’t selling. Another day or so of quiet movement and the $15,000 area is the next big number
  • One BIG word of caution; exuberance. So far there is no sign of FOMO (fear of missing out) panic buying
  • BITCOIN end of quarter “marking up” may bring in some more large buyers.  (Note; always use stops if you are trading………..just cautious)
  • Spread between BTC and ETH widening. ETH is lagging the pace of BITCOIN
  • Look for ETH to move up to $330-$350 on continued BITCOIN rally
  • Big day for GOLD. Up $23 and solidly above $1,400. This is a very powerful rally……….not time to play the short side
  • With GOLD breaking out after years of inattention the upside comes fast and strong. Looks like move to $1,700 as more buyers allocate to the metal
  • Hate to say things go straight up……..but BTC & GOLD are heading straight up.    Again, use stops if trading

Current trading positions: LONG BITCOIN AND GOLD
