Trading is a skill that must be acquired, crafted, and honed through training and education. Before making your first trades, immerse yourself in reputable sources of information and consider connecting with a mentor such as someone with a proven track record of success.
Bitstamp boasts deposit fees as low as 0.05% and, depending on how much Bitcoin you want to buy, you’ll be charged a transaction fee of between 0.25%-0.1%.

You will make some horrible losses. When I used to day trade there were days where I made losses of 15%-30% of my portfolio, however, at the end of the month I was up 17% in total as I didn’t let those losses deter me. They will happen, it will be soul crushing, you just can’t quit.
My favorite trading book is Rule the Freakin’ Markets by Michael Parness… I don’t use any of his strategies but he really has the right attitude about trading and he grows a fairly small account into a huge account. His method involves trading a lot of blue chip stocks, earning plays and news type trades. All of that is good trading but you can expend a lot of time making very little if you don’t think in percentages.. That’s one of the biggest lessons for a new trader, or perhaps one of the reasons so many traders fail.. you have to find markets to trade where your swings are in big percentages.. 30-50% swings or even more.. it leaves a lot of room for error and still end up in a good profit.. ill make an entire new post on this subject, and a video .. this is why cryptoland is so awesome, right now, the swings are huge..

Lol well don’t we have a little Dogecoin defender on our hands. Sorry bud, but Dogecoin started as a joke and it will continue to be a joke. All cryptos serve a purpose in the sense that they can and hopefully will be an official alternative to a centralized monetary system. However, there are also coins out there that were designed for a specific purpose. For instance, PotCoin was designed to be other currency for the Pot industry. It’s already accepted by over 3,000 dispensaries nationwide and growing. Mazacoin was created as the official currency for the Traditional Lakota Nation. Those are just a couple examples out of a bunch. Dogecoin, however, started as a joke and will continue to be a joke unless they step up their game.
Williams Indicator, also referred to as Williams Percent Range (%R), is a momentum indicator which measures the overbought and oversold levels of a financial asset. These levels establish entry and exit points in the market, which in return maximizes a trader’s gains and minimizes their losses. The period in which this indicator is used is 14; being 14 weeks on a weekly chart and 14 hours on an hourly chart.
Also, the day might come when the crypto market goes into a prolonged period of funk or decline. Like DotCom in the Spring of 2000. If you are skilled at trading on margin you can use that as an opportunity for gain.
Research and familiarizing with current trends is the key that most lack and this is why they cannot spot investment opportunities like major shifts in the market of a particular coin. Although some spot major shifts, chasing the bull has seen many losing money.
