Gold prices

In general, I’m 5 year bullish, 20 year bearish

0.2 btc

Range bound

Above a long term support line back from 2009 through 2016 lows, 2017 lows

Below $1375 resistance.

Ascending triangle is usually bearish

Central banks will go to a gold backed crypto.

I’d expect range bound until sovereign debt crisis

There’s a new theory about China controlling the gold price and pegging it to the CNYUSD price.

Some guy that owns shitcoin.com a Bcasher maybe, has put in like 40 btc. It might be an attack, or used to FUD.


GOOGLE TRENDS

12 Mo.  : 9 /100

30days : 65 /100

Trend    : Both these time periods are showing reduced interest again. There has been a frenzy of media lately around Trump, so that could explain it, but this isn’t good for this rally. Be careful for the effects of FUD. Overly bullish out there.
