The news of the ICO ban in China had bitcoin trading down 12%, Ethereum down 23% and Litecoin down as much as 32%, as shown below. So don’t go throwing your entire savings account into Litecoin just yet, and being bullish long-term doesn’t mean it will get there smoothly.
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.
I don’t advise you to do it. If you need money it is much better to borrow or to take loans but not this. Of course everyone choose the best solution for them. But as for me I always take easy 24/7 payday loan in the US and don’t have any problems. Firstly, these loans have very low rates and secondly hey are even for people with bad credit score. I can assure you that these loans won’t bring you so many problems as cryptocurrency.
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.
I don’t know. Applying the same metrics used above to $ETH it does pretty well, but not as well as Bitcoin. But there are clear risks and as a result I am underweight in Ethereum compared to its share of the global Cryptoasset Market Cap.
By a wide margin, the right strategy for most people is to just buy and hold. Get some well know cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dash, or Litecoin, put them in cold storage, stick them in the sock drawer and forget about them. Don’t read the news. Don’t worry about the wild swings or the predictions of doom from the popular press. Just buy, hold and forget. In a year or two, dig them out and sell some of them and buy a little more with the proceeds. Wash, rinse and repeat until retirement.
The other two currencies I would pay attention to are Ethereum (~40% the size of Bitcoin, also known as “Ether”), and the smaller and more volatile Ripple and Litecoin. Despite a smaller market cap, Litecoin enjoys higher trading volume than Bitcoin Cash and Ripple, likely because it’s one of the three currencies accepted by the #1 digital currency wallet, Coinbase.
Something else that many have turned to Bitcoin because of is the ability to trade it with leverage. Certain platforms will give you leverage over your initial desired trading amount. For example, BitMEX offers up to 100x leverage for your trades. This means your investment of $20 can be leveraged as high as $2000. Keeping in mind that most of these platforms will have regulations and rules in place to protect their investment; it is still a somewhat heavenly environment for a trader when combining these leverages with the high volatility that Bitcoin goes through each day.
Agreed. There are lots of “teachers” who have an agenda to milk students. I’m just a trader, I don’t want your money. And I don’t want to b a teacher. But I make money everyday in the markets, and why should I keep that to myself. I’m happy to share, and in my opinion, there has never been a bigger opportunity for a trader than Cryptoland!! (as I call it)
I don’t quite understand you, Your saying the tax trade event laws only apply to exchanges but not for traders? That makes absolutely no sense. Law still exists whether you disclose them or not. That will be for you to decide on how you plan to do your taxes but I do recommend those understand crypto tax trade laws in detail so you know what your getting yourself into. So far people on here have very little knowledge of tax laws or feel taxes don’t apply to them when they absolutely do.
Just like trading stocks, there are many strategies that people live by. Many are great, many are.. um.. interesting. However, there are three basic principles that I follow when investing in a cryptocurrency.
Trading Contracts for Differences (CFDs) in Cryptocurrencies carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors as there is no specific EU regulatory framework governing the trading of such products and trading these products falls outside the scope of the MiFID regulated activities.
You can run a web search. First learn the indicators, then the patterns, and most importantly practice by looking at old charts and pick out the trends. Whenever you start trading keep a log of screenshots and your commentary/ forecasts. That’s the best way to get confident with using the charts IMHO. Oh yeah, and don’t fool yourself into thinking that the uptrend you buy into won’t go down! It will always go down! You’ll find that incremental gains are more reliable and profitable (most of the time)

For longterm investors who are willing to actively safeguard their Bitcoin, owning the underlying is clearly the way to go, but prudent steps must be taken to mitigate the risk of Bitcoin theft and/or loss of private keys (i.e., diversifying holdings across wallet/storage types, using two-factor authentication and strong pass phrases).
One by one, the exchanges are closing the doors to new Registrations under the pressure of excessive demand. Bittrex, Cryptopia, CEX are closed to new registrations. It is still possible to open accounts at Binance, Bitmex, Bitfinex, CoinExchange, COSS, HitBTC, Altcoin.

Ethereum ETH, Monero XMR, Factom FCT, DASH, are all leading coins and traded the most volume daily. You should follow the coin’s chart and identify low and stable periods. Such periods are likely to be a consolidation period by the whales, and when the right time comes, accompanied by a good press release of the project, the pump will start and they will sell in profit.
