In 2018, the Chinese cryptocurrency industry and the market saw a stricter crackdown on cryptocurrency trading initiated by the local government and the People’s Bank of China (PBoC), the country’s bank. In early February, the Chinese government began to block Bitcoin and cryptocurrency-related websites through its “Great Firewall,” essentially disabling anyone within the country from accessing Bitcoin exchanges and digital asset trading platforms.
I find it illuminating that the article’s last graphic utilizes the terms “pump” and “dump”. While we use it to describe sex with women we find convenient, it has been used other ways in financial markets. Specifically it is a longtime con technique, later picked up by “boiler rooms” to extract money from suckers.
I’m not at all against mining or staking as a way to earn money in crypto. In fact, I intend on staking Ethereum when it is possible. The reason I don’t pursue these routes right now is because day trading can offer a much higher return on investment if you are willing to learn and be disciplined.
But ICOs or coins newly released on the exchanges can be great investments. Beetcoin played the IOTA new release on Bitfinex like a master. He turned 10 Bitcoin into more than 200 Bitcoin. He bought the $IOT Over the Counter (OTC) some time before Bitfinex listed it. He was ahead of the herd.
Suggestions by top government officials that a ban on such trading was under consideration prompted supporters of cryptocurrency investing to petition the presidential office’s website to block such a move.
Well that’s true for professional traders, or say someone who is trading with large amount and expects a profit everyday it’s his job. But with casual traders, someone like me, they don’t usually set a goal or anything just trade with small amounts and hope you gain some profit at end of day.
Sell crypto for fiat – pay ordinary income tax. When I sell Bitcoin for USD, I am taxed using the FIFO (first in, first out) method of accounting. For example, if I buy BTC with an initial investment of $1,000 and a week sell the BTC for $1800, I’ll pay taxes on the $800 profit.
Good day Luc, i am so excited to join this forum and to follow you.I am a newbie in crypto trading.I believe i can learn a whole lot from you.I’m interested in learning how to read the trading charts and know when to place trades.Had been looking up videos and tutorials but none has given me satisfaction until i stumbled on your articles.Sadly the videos are no longer available due to security breaches.However i would be very grateful if you can teach me how to read chart and all the technical stuff involved in trading.Im already familiar with most exchanges but my major problem is reading charts and knowing when to buy or sell.I usually rely on other traders opinions to make trades.I want to be able to make decisions myself after making my own analysis.I used to be envious of people who can interprete these things wishing i could do the same.Pls i would be appreciative if you can guide me.Thanks for sharing your knowledge
In order to do this, you must “buy the lows” and let the profits run. I’d recommend entering and exiting positions gradually in case the lows get lower or the highs get higher. Avoid buying/selling in big emotional or reactionary swoops, and try not to trade more than a few times a week to keep fees down and give your bets a chance to perform.
Bitcoin is more volatile than practically any other type of asset, including gold or the stock market. Cryptocurrency is still a young technology, and faces many challenges. While I believe the overall trend for bitcoin is upwards, trading this currency comes with considerable risk. Bitcoin prices are highly impacted by public sentiment about the currency. It will continue to fluctuate as companies and financial institutions make decisions of how to incorporate (or not incorporate) it into their businesses and workflow. It’s also highly sensitive to regulatory changes, as I will get to in a minute.
Are you one of those endlessly scanning the internet for possible places to invest your money and make huge profits? Please, stop the search! There’s no need to keep bothering yourself because I have good news for you. I have found a place whereyou could invest and potentially become a millionaire within a short period.
The trading platform is the software with which you actually will trade the cryptocurrencies. It is the place where you will open and close your trades and is the most important aspect for your success. If the platform does not perform the way you want or does not provide you with the tools you think you need then this is not the right broker for you.
TIP: A good first foray into cryptocurrency investing is the obvious, buying a major cryptocurrency like Bitcoin. After that, you’ll probably want to trade USD for crypto on an exchange like GDAX. Once you have done that, you could try trading BTC and ETH for other cryptocurrencies. Trading “crypto pairs” can be rewarding, but it is more complex and often more risky than just buying a single cryptocurrency as an investment.
Depending on your risk tolerance and willingness to analyze these markets to develop a trading strategy, day trading, or 24×7 trading, of cryptocurrency is very possible. Margin trading offers another option, however recently some traders experienced significant losses when a market sell order caused a flash crash and their accounts were liquidated a quickly declining price. There were buyers who took advantage of the crash through low-priced limit orders and scooped up cryptocurrency cheap.
This exchange offers Turbo trading, a sort of binary options for BTC/USD pair, DASH/BTC pair,ETH/BTC pair,LTC/BTC pai, and XMR/BTC. Users predict will the price rise or decline within a given time period (usually 1 to 5 minutes). If the user is correct, it makes a profit equivalent to the payoff . The exchange has a strict “no fiat” policy meaning they don’t use the banks or any similar traditional institutions or fiat currencies in their operations.
Day trading of cryptocurrency is unpredictable job and the technical analysis some times also does not work here, you can check history of daily chart in some coin like NXT and Verge. So in my opinion to become long term trading is more easy and more profitable. Just buy and hold some coin that has strong in fundamental and just look the price move and when the price reach 5-10 times profit sell it partially.
It’s not unsurprising you are having issues with Coinbase, as you say their customer service is non-existent. I don’t see why you cannot open an account because you have moved to New Mexico. I know the New Mexico regulation and Licensing Department recently put out a press release warning people about cryptocurrencies but haven’t banned it as far as I’m aware. Kraken should give you access in the US, as well as Poloniex.
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.
There’s def a lot of risk in crypto trading, but imho, with banking collapses, and major stock market volatility (July 2014 to now), and bubble economics, longer term investments aren’t bullet proof anymore. And mid-term trading is dangerous as well. This is just a beast that one must learn to know well before diving in..
Since you’re day trading, you’ll be leaving your tokens on the exchange. With transactions slower than ever across the board, storing them in your wallet isn’t an option as you’ll miss out on rapid movements.
I’m not exactly sure what you meant, but I know that not everyone can be a successful trader. Because I have taught many friends to trade and very few can see things as I do. Even though I have sat down with them for countless hours. Honestly its quite simple to make money trading but its almost like some traders end up fighting there own personality to win, like there tripping themselves up. Its frustrating for them and me 🙁
Once the limit order is set, be patient. Give the price time to fluctuate—testing highs and lows—and see if your limit order catches a buyer (or seller). There is no hurry to cancel you limit orders, so resist the urge to rapidly change your limit order prices. Many experienced investors will set multiple limit orders at consecutively lower prices to take advantage of a big selloff or take some profits when the price tests a new high. Limit orders are your best friend, use them.
When fraudulent or poor quality coins crash, your funds will go up in smoke – and this can be easily avoided by a little dash of due diligence. Picking a quality coin is a lengthy process; yet time worth spent. If you can ascertain that an altcoin is a legitimate, innovative project you could see a lot more profitable trades and much less time spent panic-selling or crying when your coins go bust.
Hi. Nice advice. Id like to say Monero while it is certainly more difficult to trace than other coins, it is not fully anonymous. Also it could be one of the coins targeted by certain govts because of it reputation as an anonymous coin.
