Trading Summary Notes for Tuesday, 9/20/22:
FIRST, I WANT TO “TURN MYSELF IN”: I HAVE BEEN (AND STILL AM) STRONGLY BULLISH (LONG TERM) ON BTC AND ETH. WRONG LATELY. I HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY BEARISH ON GOLD AND EQUITIES. RIGHT LATELY. SO, DO 2 “WRONGS” MAKE A RIGHT? YES THEY DO. LONG BTC/ETH AND SHORT GOLD/S&P AIN’T BAD.
Currently waiting (and anticipating) the Fed’s interest rate hike……..75bpt or (asp) 1bpt? Markets continue to decline……….global interest rate hikes are coming and investor/trader nervousness is picking up……the U.S. dollar strengthened and is causing some global problems………oh, and summer is over. Welcome to fall.
BITCOIN dropped 10% (Tue-Tue) to close just under $19K.
ETH lost 16% (wk-wk) as profit taking after the ‘merge’ was complete.
GOLD lost 2% (Tue-Tue) and continues going nowhere…….except down.
S&P 500 finished down 2% (wk-wk). Both the Fed interest rate decision and threat of recession weighed heavily on the index.
INVESTORS/TRADERS ARE BEGINNING TO REALIZE THE FED IS SERIOUS IN ITS INFLATION FIGHT. RECESSION IS INEVITABLE.
What to do now?
I CONTINUE TO BUY BITCOIN AND ETH FOR THE LONG TERM. THE RISK REWARD IS VERY FAVORABLE.
Buy BITCOIN dips. The risk-reward (long term) is excellent. $5k-$10K downside with potential upside of…………$50K? $100K? $X? Michael Saylor’s MicroStrategy is selling $500M in stock to buy BITCOIN. “Sailing with Saylor”
Buy ETH. The merge may cause a bit of profit taking and weakness BUT long term bullish.
Avoid GOLD. Dead money. Sell or sell short. GOLD goes lower. Higher interest rates will continue to pressure the metal.
The S&P 500 will have bear market rallies/bounces but that’s all they are. Reduce long positions and sell short S&P 500 rallies. The worst is yet to come.
SIMPLE; FINANCIAL MARKETS WENT UP WHEN CENTRAL BANKS “PRINTED” MONEY……….THEY ARE NOW TAKING MONEY AWAY. MARKETS GO DOWN.
EQUITY AND GOLD HOLDERS BEWARE. THE PANIC HAS NOT HIT YET. ITS GOING TO GET REALLY UGLY.
- BITCOIN 2022…….$35,000-$40,000
- ETH 2022…………$2,000-$2,500
- S&P 500 2022……..DOWN…….DOWN……DOWN……...LOOKING AT 3,250
Current trading positions:
- LONG BITCOIN
- LONG ETH
- SHORT GOLD
- SHORT S&P 500
We compare the price of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Gold & the S&P 500. We use the CME Bitcoin Indexes (BRR & BRTI) and the CME Ethereum Indexes (ETH_RR_USD) & (ETH_RTI_USD) for reference as well as the London Bullion Market afternoon price settlement on the digital assets & gold.
