As a day trader, the news is a sacred thing for you that you have to monitor and act upon. There are many great resources that write about everything that is related to cryptocurrencies and that could affect their development. I personally use cryptocoinsnews.com and coindesk.com. Both these portals go to great lengths to provide a comprehensive and an up to date information about the crypto market. I believe that there also other great resources about cryptocurrencies, I recommend picking at least two such portals (that write about cryptocurrencies in general) and to visit them regularly. Once you have these websites selected, decide which cryptocurrency you want to day trade. Is it Bitcoin? If that’s so you might want to bookmark news.bitcoin.com. Proceed with the same strategy with other cryptocurrencies and find at least one resource that focuses explicitly on your cryptocurrency.

One advice I’d give beginner traders is to avoid falling for ICOs, or Initial Coin Offerings, in the short term and stick with the more established currencies like Bitcoin, Eurotheum and Litecoin. According to MarketWatch, an ICO is “a fundraising means in which a company attracts investors looking for the next big crypto score by releasing its own digital currency in exchange.” The ICO is similar to a initial public offering (IPO), but with a crypto twist and (as of now) no regulatory hoops to jump through.

The other upside to such a trend is that while centralized exchanges are relatively easy to use, they also act as a kind of dark pool in that you never really know who the counterpart to your trade is and whether or not someone is front-running your order or manipulating prices. A downside is that the burden of security gets put back onto the customer, and for sure hackers will start chasing individual wallets to get at the loot.

Yes, in day trading it is quite hard to make money when markets are downturn so it is better to accumulate all those good coins when markets are down and wait for right time to sell. But in day trading it is very hard to predict prices accurately and we may do mistakes to sell at the right time so profits are not guaranteed. I always choose to buy and hold instead of going after quick small profits in day trading.

Don’t be greedy – the crypto space is very volatile but it’s not too dissimilar in its trading and price discovery than the stock market.
