  • BITCOIN counties to sink. A few days ago I commented that BTC was “waffling in the mid-$8,000 area” while deciding which way to go. Now we know…..down
  • So where IS down? Well it sure isn’t the low $8k area. Will it be $7,500? Not sure. Lets just say BITCOIN is headed down to a level yet to be determined
  • I would love to see $6,500 for BTC but not sure it will get there. Right now, more sellers than buyers. Be careful
  • I will make the same comments from the other day for ETH.
  • ETH may be basing, say in the $225-$250 area
  • GOLD is continuing its way higher. Investors who gave up on GOLD, or thought BITCOIN had replaced it, are now looking……..confused?
  • $1,350 will be a strong resistance area BUT after that expect $1,400. GOLD has turned and looking good

Current trading positions: LONG GOLD
