Currently, all currencies are traded against Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), with Tether (USDT) recently coming onto the scene. If you don’t already own any of these currencies, you’re going to need to purchase some on an exchange. Here’s a list of exchanges where you can convert US dollars to BTC or ETH.
As others have said you risk losing money, but in addition unless you really good at it you won’t make more than someone who just holds. And you end up creating more taxable events and never get to long term capital gains territory.
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
To add a new payment method, go to “Settings” and “Payment Methods” on the dashboard. You can choose a bank account or a credit/debit card. The bank account has higher limits, but takes longer for the funds to settle. The credit/debit card has lower limits, but the transactions happen instantly. If you go bank account route, you will need to verify two deposit amounts on your account. I personally did both—I funded the account with a few grand from my checking account, and thanks to my impatience I also put few grand on my credit card just so I could get started right away.

The market is about hit the projected target zone for the wave (c) of the wave (2) and now it should bounce form it in order to test the local technical resistance at the level of $9,434.

Given that the cryptocurrency market is still a pipsqueak in size compared to stocks or forex, price movements are highly influenced by news. Coins can erupt in value when new developments or partnerships are announced, creating a momentary explosion in value.
If my mind hadn’t said “it will die pretty quick” (thought like 25-35, lol) I would’ve made a fortune…never underestimate the noob traders out there who only make their decisions based on market cap or stuff.

One advice I’d give beginner traders is to avoid falling for ICOs, or Initial Coin Offerings, in the short term and stick with the more established currencies like Bitcoin, Eurotheum and Litecoin. According to MarketWatch, an ICO is “a fundraising means in which a company attracts investors looking for the next big crypto score by releasing its own digital currency in exchange.” The ICO is similar to a initial public offering (IPO), but with a crypto twist and (as of now) no regulatory hoops to jump through.
It was taking over my life and it was stressful. If I got in a bad trade, I could be sucked in and chase. If I missed a trade, I would kick myself. Also when the markets closed, I would be stressing about any trades I was holding.
Although I profited, I wasn’t sure if I just had a lucky month. I wanted to formalize my trading knowledge so I could do more than buy low and sell high. There had to be a real strategy to this stuff. I read as many books as I could on trading stocks and foreign exchange markets. I made a lot of mistakes. But eventually I found my rhythm and strategies.
