On most stock trading services like E*Trade and Scottrade, customers pay around $7 per trade to cover these companies’ marketing, physical branches and sales reps. Founded in 2013, Robinhood ditches those fees by running a lean operation centered around engineers and its app. It makes money on the interest of cash its customers keep with it, or by selling monthly Robinhood Gold subscriptions that let users borrow money to trade with.

It’s important to realise that you need to do your own research and come up with your own strategy for cryptocurrency trading. If you are short on time and want to play it safe; the easiest cause of action is to simply diversify into several different coins and then wait a year or more. However, if you want to maximise profits you should learn how to swing trade cryptocurrency. I strongly recommend swing trading over day trading – day trading is stressful, time consuming and only really profitable if you have a of money to play with. Swing trading involves trying to capture large movements in the market – for example, you might decide that you want to net a profit of 30% on Ethereum…
If you’ve already got a strategy that works, then a cryptocurrency trading robot may be worth considering. Once you’ve programmed your strategy, the bot will get to work, automatically executing trades when the pre-determined criteria are met. There are two benefits to this.
It makes no sense for each trade to be a taxable event. You could make $100 on a trade and then mins later lose $150. You don’t pay taxes by the trade. You pay them by the year or quarterly based on your earnings.
My general rule in buying Bitcoin on leverage is to buy the dip: you want to see red candles after a period of green candles on the charts. I like to buy at 10x leverage to start with. If the position trades into a nice profit I slide the leverage slider up to 50x or 100x. This has the effect of moving your Liquidation Price up and therefore securing profit.
I tried it and in the end I’m just happier HODLing. Alts are just pumped and dumped way too often and if you’re not watching constantly you can get screwed so quickly. Actually even if you watch you can get screwed. It’s a tough business to be in.
Getting it right. Day trading involves skill, knowledge for gains better than holding on. Over a longer period for 99% of the traders holding on gives far better results than day trading. This is true for ETH or BTC as well. You might make 5-10% over a week but you risk losing 40-50% while trying to day trade.

Bittrex has earned it’s place as the new contender to the throne of world’s largest crypto exchange. Years of hard work and some lucky circumstances (BTC-e shut-down, Poloniex exodus, Cryptsy) have compounded a steady inflow of new users. It is a great place to trade bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. I’ll let you read the detail in my Bittrex review, which has some important facts and analysis.
But as a price goes down it also can go up tremendously. This creates thou the fear of a bubble which will make the price eventually crash. People that cashed out before a crash are the lucky or well, educated ones and make enormous amounts of money.
But here are the basics… a blockchain is a continuously growing list of records, called blocks, which are linked and secured using cryptography. By design, blockchains are inherently resistant to modification of the data, and serve as a public ledger of transactions between two parties. To date, the best analogy I’ve heard for blockchain compares it to a Google Doc:
Bitcoin is easily the most recognized cryptocurrency and is also by far the most highly valued at the moment. However, it’s far from the only digital coin available for trading. There are already dozens of cryptos selling for over USD $1 and even more that go for pennies (though the latter are likely not worth your attention quite yet).
There are some Bitcoin sites which allow payment to be made via PayPal. Coinbase, for one, offers support for PayPal. In fact, Coinbase is probably the most reputable site which allows payment via PayPal.
That same day, Slush’s Pool first block was mined. Bitcoin Pooled Mining (operated by slush), is a way in which several users work together to mine Bitcoins and then split the benefits among themselves.
First of all, I recommend you to leave day trading to the bots! Go for longer term trades on recently heavily dumped coins. Don’t diversify too much, and don’t buy a lot of coins. You will end up only with scraps. Concentrate on few well researched coins instead. Hunt down coins with solid, new technology and buy the dips.
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.
Given the huge breaches at e-currency holding/trading companies (see Mt. Gox), the huge rise then immediate halving of the value of Bitcoin, I’m not certain I’d put much faith in Bitcoin right now, even though at one time I was a prime advocate for it and even own some (now defunct) external hardware miners. Mt. Gox blew a lot of faith and confidence in the market that I haven’t really seen recover much over the year.
First off, i never knew about this site, i stumbled on your article while i was looking for articles on how to trade cryptos on the internet.I became curious when i saw the outpouring of positive comments so i decided to sign up and follow Luc.Unfortunately those videos are no longer available due security breaches.Gutted i must have come in so late.I would like to appeal to you for the sake of the people who have genuine interest in trading cryptos, can you post videos on how to read and interprete the charts.This is one area im inching to learn.I would be grateful if i can have video tutorials on this
Unfortunately for those suckers, I made a killing (and still am making a killing) by betting against everything they were saying. When you tell the truth and stand up for something, most people won’t like it. The only real way to deal with suckers is to take their money on the way down.

Try coinsign.com, they do bank wire for high end investors. they dont have limits on sending wire. the verification is being made faster, and the email notification for each step is very useful. i have made some few transactions, send it vis SEPA, and it works. they actually do not keep balance, they are brokerage that send the BTC to the wallet directly. so far i didnt have any issues with the limits or the bank wire. worth trying.
