Only invest what you can afford to lose. Some people think this advice is in regards to simply caring about your financial future and if you are ok with risks then you can ignore it. That is NOT the case. This advice actually exists to reflect the decision making model that is required for successful day trading. In day trading you don’t have the opportunity to hesitate and you do have to take occasional gambles, if your dealing with money that you can’t afford to lose then no matter how hard you try, your decision making will be effected and you will not be risk adverse enough.
Xcoins describes itself as a Bitcoin lending service that allows traders to get bitcoins by using a credit card or PayPal. Due to charge back with paypal, buying cryptocurrency has been difficult however Xcoins claims to have found a way around it. Their unique peer-to-peer lending model connects lenders and borrowers and allows users to get bitcoins through a series of secure loans. Each secure loan can be paid with any PayPal-recognised payment method. Unlike regular cryptocurrency exchanges, borrowers that no longer want the bitcoin can get their money back. Lenders may also choose to join the platform for free.
On top of that, the cryptocurrency market travels at lightspeed compared to other markets. New coins enter the market on a daily basis (in 2016, there were about 550 different coins, today there are about 1,500), and each one has news every day. I’m not doubting your ability to consume and analyze news, but that level of information bombardment will always be more effectively consumed as a group. In these communities, you’ll see members link news and relevant articles about coins you’ve invested in and coins you’ve never heard of. The community will definitely expand your knowledge much faster than doing it all yourself.
I am emotionally invested in the success of Bitcoin and crypto in general. But as far as my day trading is concerned, I’m ready to drop BTC at any moment because there is no room for emotions in this game.
You can still profit in day trading because the market is so volatile and if you know what you are doing then you can have a good profit in it. However, day trading is sometimes so stressful because you have to watch the market all the time because there is a possibility of a pump and dump in the coin you have bought so there are others who suggest to just buy and hold and then wait for sometime for your coin to grow in price. If the coin has active developers and their project is viable then more often than not, your holdings will multiply in value in the future. Just observed the growth of coins in the market.
This straightforward strategy simply requires vigilance. The idea is you keep a close eye out for a correction in a trend and then catch the ‘swing’ out of the correction and back into the trend. A correction is simply when candles or price bars overlap. You’ll find trending prices move quickly, but corrections, on the other hand, will not.
When someone buys cryptocurrency from a centralized exchange — I’m going to stick with Bitcoin (BTC) as an example — they swap fiat money for the nominated BTC. But that coin doesn’t get sent to the customer. If it’s bought from a non-exchange seller, then it comes into the exchange’s own wallet, and gets held there. A ledger entry is made, and the customer gets an IOU. If the seller is on the same exchange platform, no BTC even needs to be shifted, the exchange simply changes its accounts to note one less BTC for the seller, one more for the buyer.
Trading is not an easy way to make profit even you’re expert, need more than understand real market works. First, if you decide trade with many coin I think is not a good idea. Every coin has their own pattern and mostly different moment to take action ( buy/ sell/ hold ). Day trade is hard way to make profit, but I only suggested trade with 2 – 3 coin, so you can focus. Second, you have too much question but I can answer like this. Take 2 – 3 coin, replace it with day trade strategy you like, face the risk and always fix you problem ( loss ). Keep doing that until you find the best way to make profit. Candlestick, price action and volume is just indicator ( sign ), it will help you but must have disciplines also. Good luck with you.
Did you notice that when the market cap on two different days was almost the same so was the price? This might help you to understand what to expect within the day. Check this information before you start again selling in panic when the price drops at a considerably low amount. A very good idea is to create patterns where you write down a market cap and a probable range of a cryptocurrency price. This way you will know where the market is probably heading. And if it’s the right time for you to sell or whether the price will bounce back again (if the market cap is high and only the value dropped). You can check the market cap and a price of all cryptocurrencies for each day at coinmarketcap.com, here select a coin you want to monitor and click on the tab “historical data”.
Here’s how Robinhood Crypto works. You can instantly transfer up to $1000 from your connected bank account (more if you have a Gold membership), with additional funds coming over slower ACH transfer. For smaller traders, that could eliminate the annoying delays on other platforms that can make you miss a low price you want to buy up. The whole Crypto section of Robinhood is styled with an 80s Tron design to denote the 24-hour trading window, compared to its day and night themes for when traditional stock markets are open or closed.
The STOCH indicator, also known as the stochastic oscillator, is yet another momentum indicator, only this one compares the closing price of a cryptocurrency to it’s range of prices over a certain period of time. The theory behind this technical indicator is that in a market trending upwards, the price will close near the high each day, and for a market trending downwards, the price will close near the low each day. The period of time the STOCH indicator is calculated in is typically 14 days.
Yes it is but in my opinion day trading won’t give so much profit if that’s what you to have because much of the biggest pump in crypto currencies happens in a matter of weeks and months. Day trading is like you are practicing a timing trading which you buy every time it drops and sell whenever it increases or pump though there’s really a profit from this I would suggest long term holding so that you can maximize your earnings
Ripple is an open-source digital payment network, and it’s already being used by some of the world’s largest banks – such as the bank of Tokyo and Santandar. XRP has shown significant potential recently and has been turning a lot of heads. Ripple aims to become the go-to tool for banks on a global scale, while still giving an exciting investment opportunity to crypto advocates and solo investors. Ripple has many haters and I’ve been burned by it myself in the past – I sold 30,000 XRP at 20 cents… painful. Still, I did buy them at 3 cents a pop, so it could have been worse. I hold 10,000 XRP today and will hold until 2022.

This is another reason why I like keeping my net worth in Bitcoin. If I hold it for more than a year I only need to pay 15% tax whenever I decide to cash it out to USD. That’s a much lower rate than normal income tax.
