A blockchain is a big decentralized digital ledger that records every single transaction involving a specific cryptocurrency. Because a blockchain is the underlying technology backing every cryptocurrency, it is important to understand this technology in order to understand cryptocurrencies.

You might be dreaming of the feel of the steering wheel of your first Ferrari right now but before getting started on your first trade, you should come to terms with the proven risks associated with day trading:
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.
You have to recharge. You don’t need to catch every damn run. Go out. See the trees, to the birds, play with your kids and your pets. In short, do the things that matter in life. The markets will be waiting for you when you return.
The fact is that most Bitcoin and crypto currency auto traders are scams. Only rarely do we find an auto trading system that is legit. And even then, we would only recommend such a system to an experienced trader who is knowledgeable about technical and fundamental analysis.
Note: It is EXTREMELY likely that these exchanges will also temporarily stop taking new members so my advice is; open an account, even if you don’t plan on using it you will then have the option. Check out this list of cryptocurrency exchanges for more info and options.
While the book is focused on traditional markets, most of the rules he puts forward can easily be applied to the crypto markets. His reasons for why new traders lose money on the very first page is worth the price of the entire book.
Truth be told, there is no profit to be made in Dogecoin. The community offers nothing but stupid gifs, knitted Dogecoin sweaters from grandma, and dumb crafts made by girlfriends. Don’t be so butthurt. You know I’m right.
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?
So now that you’ve got somewhat of a grip on Bitcoin, Ethereum & Litecoin, you may want to do some speculation and invest in lesser known coins (altcoins). In order to do that, we’re going to have to use a marketplace or exchange. For this example, we’ll be using Bittrex — my favorite exchange.
Coinbase gives users the option to store coins in what it calls ‘the Vault’ (a more secure location because allegedly not even Coinbase can access coins in the Vault). This is good because security can be a concern with some of the lesser known sites. In short, Coinbase is a trustworthy brand and a safe and secure place to buy Bitcoin.
Bitcoin is a volatile asset (relative to FIAT) and this fact should be taken into consideration, especially in the days when the Bitcoin value is moving sharply. Bitcoin and Altcoins have an inverse relationship in their value, i.e. when the value of Bitcoin rises then Altcoins are losing their Bitcoin value, and vice versa. When Bitcoin is volatile, our conditions for trading are kind of foggy. During fog we can’t see much ahead, so it is better to have close targets for our trades or not to trade at all.

This cryptocurrency was initially created as a joke on December 8th, 2013. However, the meme based currency quickly generated a community and reached a value of $60 million USD by January 2014. Today, this currency is worth nearly $440 million USD. Although there aren’t many mainstream applications designed to use Dogecoin as a method of payment, many online users have been using this form of digital currency as a way to tip others for their creative content or services. Dogecoin is very popular amongst the social media networks. With the help of crowdfunding, the community managed to schedule a delivery of a gold coin which represents the official currency to reach the Moon’s surface by 2019. Created by Jackson Palmer and Billy Markus, Dogecoin uses Scrypt as a hash algorithm alongside a POW system to solidify all transactions.
