And from this, I wrote my original strategy. I still don’t know if I am smart or lucky, anyone could have made money this year in such a bull market. I guess the smart ones made a better %. I am pretty self-aware that different decisions would have led to an entirely different outcome. If I hadn’t have bought Ripple, I would probably be a couple of months behind where I am now. If I had doubled my Ripple investment, I could be a couple of months ahead.
Margin Trading: You are allowed to use coins from peer-to-peer margin funding providers. This means, that you can borrow buying/selling power, but you need to allocate some funds (=margin) which won’t be accessible until you return the lent coins.

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”.
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 page will focus on that option due to its ease of use for beginners.

This is what I am looking for short term. An other view doesn’t make sense for me right now. But I will only enter in a clear up-trend, because of the low volume and risky situation. Also I am watching for divergence in the daily chart. If there isn’t one, then it would mean we will go down very far. But let’s see. I wait for clear signs and it will be exciting …
There we go! Hopefully you should be well informed on how to buy cryptocurrency, how to trade it, and how to store it. I’m usually online in the live chat window during USA (PST) hours if you can’t seem to figure something out.
It requires too much time, and I want to work the minimum amount each day, my trading time is less than an hour a day. Yes I now write about crypto but writing is a pleasure, it is one of the things I have always wanted to do. It is using my time for what I want. Just check how often I Tweet compared to the day trading experts. A few a day because I am busy doing other things than looking at the market.
Another thing I need to make clear is the type of trading I do – day trading. My base currency is Bitcoin, which I use to buy Altcoins like Ethereum, ZCash, Golem, etc. When I make a trade to buy an Altcoin with BTC, I could end up selling the Altcoin back for BTC within a matter of minutes or hours. All of my profits are converted back into BTC at the end of each trading day.
