All quiet on the trading front. The price range was $222 to $227 on a light volume day. The market is in another holding pattern awaiting a sudden move higher or lower. $230 looks to be a formidable level to punch through. Expect the market to drift lower and retest $218.

 

Trade Idea

Accumulate short positions in XBUK15 in the high $220s looking with a downside target price of $218.

Crypto Trader Daily – 11 March 2015

Price Action

Bitcoin made another push over $300 early morning China time. The price subsequently fell back to $290, and is now gathering strength to punch through $300 again. The sentiment has turned quite bullish after the announcement that derivatives goddess Blythe Masters has joined a Bitcoin startup.

 

Trade Idea

Continue to increase your portfolio’s long position below $300. Look for a gap upwards during the early morning hours China time. Consider taking profit at $315. Use XBUH15.
