check out trevon james on youtube, he has some trading videos, also tone vays’ channel, and i want to say the coinigy guys have videos too but dont quote me on that one.

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.
Ethereum hit the scene with the promise of using the blockchain for more than just currencies. You could build decentralized apps on top of Ethereum and even new currencies. In the summer of 2016 I decided to buy ETH at around $9. The day after I purchased Ethereum something called the DAO hack happened and the price dropped 50%. Unlike in 2011, I didn’t need the money I invested to cover any bills. I watched my Ethereum swing between $4 and $20 for about 8 months. I wondered if I could take advantage of those swings by buying when the price was low, selling when it was high, and buying back in when the price dipped again. Though I didn’t take any action on the thought, the idea lingered in my head.
Truth be told, there is no profit to be made in Dogecoin. The community offers nothing but stupid gifs, knitted Dogecoin sweaters from grandma, and dumb crafts made by girlfriends. Don’t be so butthurt. You know I’m right.
Then as I sit here and write this on September 3rd, 2017, the Chinese government announced a few hours ago that they are banning all organizations and individuals from raising funds through Initial Coin Offering (ICO). They barred all banks and financial institutions from doing business related to ICO trading. This is significant news, although not a surprise to many people, as representatives from the People’s Bank of China and China Securities Regulatory Commission had previously criticized ICOs as an unauthorized fundraising tool that may open the door to financial scams. (I will explain ICOs in the last section).
The proliferation of the virtual currency and the accompanying trading frenzy have raised eyebrows among regulators globally, though many central banks have refrained from supervising cryptocurrencies themselves.
We are in a growing market; we could be in a growing market for years. There is no need to day trade. There are amazing returns available from finding a good coin with a solid trajectory, finding a good entry point and holding for the medium to long term until you are in profit. You are then able to liquidate some of your positions and find new entry points.
Don’t be greedy. No one ever lost money taking a profit. As a coin begins to grow, the greed inside us grows along with it. If a coin increases by 30%, why not consider taking profit? Even if goals are set to 40% or 50%, you should at least pull out some of the profit on the way up in case a coin doesn’t reach the goal. If you wait too long or try to get out at a higher point, you risk losing profit you already earned or even turning that profit into a loss. Get into the habit of taking profits and scouting for re-entry if you want to continue reaping potential profits.
Day trading is not an easy job like swing trading as it includes no of trades to be done within a day. Also, day trading using candlesticks pattern in cryptocurrency market is similar to forex day trading because it’s a 24-hour market comparing to stock exchanges where it is opened only for few hours a day. You just need a good grip on day trading skills along with a good day trading strategy and Strong money management techniques that’s it, you can make a plan and execute it.
Current payment systems require third-party intermediaries like Google, Facebook, banks and government agencies to process transactions, and many charge high fees for doing so. A blockchain system, however, allows for faster direct payments between individuals and can even support micropayments.
Bitcoin is great and I’m definitely going to be making use for it in the near future, however, trading it back-n-forth is something I’m not interested in. The whole idea of Bitcoin is to get away from this fraudulent system presently controlled by the banksters. The banksters, and their never-ending bailouts and market manipulation, has destroyed any confidence of an ordinary investor smart enough to stay away from them. The entire global financial financial system, starting with Wall Street/City of London should be reorganized in bankruptcy court and every bankster responsible for architecture of QE TARP ZIRP 0% unlimited bailouts should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and incarcerated.

Every now and again an investment would fly, I would skim some profits off and buy something new. I setup an account on an exchange and started building an index portfolio. I started buying up the top 20 coins which I thought had value and taking punts on smaller coins.
By essentially using crypto trading as a loss leader instead of its primary business like Coinbase and other apps, Robinhood could substantially expand beyond the 3 million users it already has. Simplifying trading and tracking could bolster Bitcoin and Ethereum. And by combining it with traditional stock, ETF, and option trading in a single app, Robinhood could further legitimize the cryptocurrency craze. The two trading worlds could cross-pollinate, dragging even more people into the crypto scene.
Keep in mind that there are sometimes very smart people behind it that try to push the envelope of what is done till that moment but in the end, the unit in one way or another relates to the value of other established currency, which is the format all currencies are following
Yes you are correct – right now there is no hard wallet that can hold every coin. As for checking if a coin is based on ERC-20 tech, I don’t know of a fast way to do this, I normally just google individually, but there is probably a database out there somewhere. Happy trading amigo!
Bitstamp are big in Europe and, since 2011, have moved from Slovenia, and the United Kingdom in search of sound regulatory environments. Good volumes are available for larger trades. Well received by people using SEPA and credit cards. Both euro and US dollar deposits are accepted. I like Bitstamp because they really focus on being a pure bitcoin-only exchange (update: since 2017 Bitstamp have started adding popular cryptocoins). Please read my Bitstamp critique for analysis of factors such as security, fees, and the history.
The STOCH indicator, also known as the stochastic oscillator, is yet another momentum indicator, only this one compares the closing price of a cryptocurrency to it’s range of prices over a certain period of time. The theory behind this technical indicator is that in a market trending upwards, the price will close near the high each day, and for a market trending downwards, the price will close near the low each day. The period of time the STOCH indicator is calculated in is typically 14 days.
Not all of the exchanges allow bitcoin and altcoin deposits, also many traders do not want to engage in the technical side of the blockchain technology, so for these users, CFD derivative trading offers a solution to benefit from the price changes of crypto assets. In case of a cryptocurrency CFD you can buy and sell coins just like on a cryptocurrency exchange, but without the need to wait for confirmation times on the blockchain. When engaging in day trading, quick access to funds is crucial. CFD trading however usually have wider spreads compared to the cryptocurrency exchanges.

Coinbase and Robinhood were founded around the same time about five years ago and are part of a small crowd of fintech startups with valuations exceeding $1 billion. Coinbase, one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges, makes money by charging the buyer and seller a fee. It’s easy to see why Robinhood wants in on the action. While Robinhood added more than 300,000 accounts in November and now has more than 3 million users, Coinbase has grown more rapidly, to more than 13 million as of late last year.
The price displayed on the Crypto Detail Page is the mark price, which is the midpoint of the bid and ask prices. This means that when you’re buying a coin, your order will execute at the ask price, which is higher than the mark price.
Huobi and OKEX, formerly two of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in the Chinese market prior to the government’s ban on cryptocurrency trading, relocated immediately after the ban on cryptocurrency trading was imposed in October 2017 to Hong Kong to serve both Chinese investors and international traders. Almost immediately after the two exchanges migrated to Hong Kong, Huobi and OKCoin experienced a massive surge in daily trading volume and demand.
i have always stayed away from the stock market, just becuase it can eat you alive if your not carefull or know what your doing. I even read about people losing their homes due to losses.

I have 0 experience in trading… I mean zero, nada, zilch, but im good with numbers hoping that will keep me from going red. I look forward to your your next teaching vids.

This cryptocurrency is one of the first ones to hit the market after the launch of Bitcoin. Technically, it is nearly identical to Bitcoin, but with one major difference. Instead of using SHA-256d as its hash algorithm, Litecoin uses Scrypt, created by Colin Percival and designed to make it extremely expensive to initiate large scale hardware attacks because of the amount of memory that is needed to decrypt a single key. Litecoin was released in 2011 and was founded by Charles Lee.
1st thing, you should always expect that something could go wrong with a trade and therefor you always size your entry so that it wouldn’t hurt you too bad. Buy no more than 25% of your account in one position. That being said, if you learn to read charts, you will almost never have a bad trade, therefore on the rare occasion when it does turn the wrong way, you wont mind just taking the small loss and jumping into the next trade without hiccup. But yeah I will cover these topics in some videos, I’m writing a note right now, thanks for your topic suggestions. And Thank you very much for the vote!!
