Each option has its pros and cons, but notably, only an exchange-broker-wallet hybrid like Coinbase/GDAX allows one to trade and invest directly using a single platform. This will focus on that option due to its ease of use for beginners.
Interesting article Michael.. im also interested in range daytrading Ethereum but am loathed to open a centralized trading account as decentralized will be the way to go in the future. Blocknet launches March 1st and hopefully this will be the first of many. Up until then which demo platform do you think will suit to paractice this on?

I thought this site was about critical thinking. I you have your shit together you know that trading some crypto currency is a really bad idea. This article basicly encourages people to piss away money. It offers zero good trading advice, except buy low and sell high. LMAO
I started by wanting to know, in particular, if bitcoin was going to be the punchline of jokes like beanie babies in the 90s, and featured in Economics 101 classes as part of bubble theory. My quick conclusion: I don’t believe the bitcoin hype is over-exaggerated.
check out trevon james on youtube, he has some trading videos, also tone vays’ channel, and i want to say the coinigy guys have videos too but dont quote me on that one. There are quite a few people to watch there. Most of them are on steemit anyway. Dont do what they do, just see what they do if/how it works, and if not then you know what not to do. there is a lot to learn from others. even if they’re mistakes!
Disctric0x is a network of decentralized communities and marketplaces, and where each ‘district’ is a decentralized entity on the district0x Network. In other words, District0x allows anyone to create a network of communities (or organizations) with a focus on governance, cooperation and decision making being decentralized. District0x is an open-source software project, and as such, it does not seek to gain profit, but rather focuses all of its attention towards building software that enables development and governance of marketplaces that are powered by the community.
All investments involve risk and the past performance of a security, or financial product does not guarantee future results or returns. Keep in mind that while diversification may help spread risk it does not assure a profit, or protect against loss, in a down market. There is always the potential of losing money when you invest in securities, or other financial products. Investors should consider their investment objectives and risks carefully before investing.
Cost: The cost is 0.1015 BTC i.e. $1,167. This is the maximum you can lose should the price fall by 10% to $10,500. If the price was to crash to $5,000 your loss is still limited to $1,167. This is the beauty of the Bitmex contract. Trading Futures Contracts on the CME, for example, there is no such limited risk facility — you can lose a lot more than your initial margin.
You can make money when the market goes down by strategically buying, but also never waiting for the bottom or the top. In the words of Warren Buffet “Catch the Falling Knife” if you wait for the lowest price you’ll miss it.
Love Thy Crypto. The world of high finance and Wall Street can appear dry and mundane to a lot of us; there doesn’t seem to be a lot of passion involved. We earnestly believe that needn’t be the case with digital currency. Once again, don’t invest in the hopes that this is all a get-rich-quick scheme; instead, do it because you believe strongly in the concepts and the principles behind cryptocurrency.
There is also risk inherent to the exchange itself. Just like the cash in your wallet, the safety of your bitcoins or other currencies depend on your own diligence. While your bitcoins cannot disappear, the transactions are permanent and can only be refunded by the recipient. This means you should only do business with people and organizations you know and trust, or who have an established reputation.
If you anticipate a particular price shift, trading on margin will enable you to borrow money to increase your potential profit if your prediction materialises. Exchanges have different margin requirements and offer varying rates, so doing your homework first is advisable. Bitfinex and Huobi are two of the more popular margin platforms.
It’s important to specify a time horizon for your investment—such as short term (7–14 days), medium term (1–2 months) or long-term (6–12 months). I don’t recommend trading on time horizons shorter than 7 days unless you have access to margin (you probably don’t) or have large amounts of money to play with; otherwise, the fees will be too high relative to the returns.
Embrace volatility – Cryptocurrencies are famously volatile. The price of Bitcoin, for example, went from $3,000 down to $2,000 and then leapt up to nearly $5,000, all within three months in 2017. Whilst this means risk is high, it also means the potential for profit is great too. It’s always sensible to check the volatility of the exchange you decide to go with.
