This book is short and to the point. There are no stories of the author’s trading glory, or links to his special, ultra secret system that you can have for a mere thousand dollars more. It concentrates on simple, practical advise, for multiple market trends. Everyone makes money when it’s all going up but how do you deal with trades going sideways or down? It’s in there.
Yes, in hindsight (which is always a stupid way to evaluate it) you would make money. But you would’ve made WAY more money holding. Eth was somewhere around 90x returns just holding last year. You think you can compete with that by day trading? Especially after the constant transaction costs you’re incurring?
With many coins disappearing as fast as they emerge and a good helping of scams being run in the crypto world, the possibility of losing money is as real as Trump’s presidency. Ensuring you have enough money to live will increase your confidence, relaxing in the knowledge you have your bases covered if you blow your whole account balance.
On 22 May 2010, a total amount of 10,000 BTC was spent on pizza – the first, real-world transaction that involved the use of Bitcoins. A programmer from Jacksonville, Florida, Laszlo Hanyecz, proposed to pay 10,000 Bitcoins for a pizza on the Bitcoin Forum. The exchange rate at the time was put at about US$25.
As an alternative to Bitcoin, every altcoin was developed to improve or replace Bitcoin’s technology in different ways. Previously, altcoins were no more than Bitcoin clones. Altcoins initially improved Bitcoin’s hashing algorithm, transaction speed, and distribution method by a narrow margin.
Besides Bitcoin (who remains the big leader of the pack) there are a few crypto currencies out there that you should take notice of if you are interested in cryptocurrencies trading online. I can mention them all but that would not really help you.
Nope! You’ve probably heard of Bitcoin, one of the original and certainly the most popular cryptocurrency. It, along with Ethereum & Litecoin will open up the door for your crypto trading adventures.
How to buy cryptocurrency has to be one of the largest topics of online conversation in 2017 — I know I get asked about it all the time. The fact of the matter is that with ever changing global policies, world leaders and shaky governments, decentralized currencies are needed now more than ever – s0 here is my cryptocurrency trading guide.
You need to hold…. buying and then selling shortly after is a BAD plan; you have to be patient with crypto; choose your coins wisely and then hold them for a year. Some of my favourite picks for 2018 – ICX, XVG, NEO, OMG, XMR, XRP, ETH, FCT, DASH, THC, COVAL, SALT, ADA.
Coinbase is one of America’s most popular Bitcoin exchange site and probably the fastest and easiest way to buy Bitcoin in the US. The site has an ‘Instant Buy’ option for credit or debit card purchases and setting up an account is quick and easy with no long waits for verification (this can be an issue with some exchange sites).
Bitcoin is here to stay. But the world of virtual currencies is getting crowded with many other “altcoins”. There are over 100 types of cryptocurrency that sell for more than $1 USD, according to CoinMarketCap. Even more are in penny-stock range, but I don’t recommend trading them right now.

With cryptocurrency exchanges all over the world, there can be significant movement in currencies around the clock. As I pointed out earlier, because there is no single market, and the markets never close, there are events taking place all the time that cause fluctuations in prices. Even within a single country, events on different exchanges can result in significant pricing differences on the same currency.
I day trade and swing trade crytpo on Binance.com, http://Bittrex.com and the dreaded EtherDelta.com. It is very risky but profitable if you time it right. I write info on various coins and ICOs on Cryptocurrency Trading – Day and Swing Trading – Bitcoin, Ethereum News
Yes it is but in my opinion day trading won’t give so much profit if that’s what you intend to have because much of the biggest pump in crypto currencies happens in a matter of weeks and months. Day trading is like you are practicing a timing trading which you buy every time it drops and sell whenever it increases or pump though there’s really a profit from this I would suggest long term holding so that you can maximize your earnings
While this may have been true two years ago, the space has changed considerably since then. More robust altcoins have popped up in the past year such as Ethereum that have a significant market cap. You can use tools like https://www.coinigy.com to aid your cryptocurrency trading. I would strongly advise against taking rules #2 and #3 literally.
Coinbase is one of the most trusted and well-known exchanges for buying and selling Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin. They are essentially a digital wallet for your cryptocurrencies, and their iPhone and Android app make sending currency and tracking prices super simple.
Ignore Biased Sources. These are where pump and dump schemes and other unscrupulous behavior happen in real time. Many people who post on websites that cater to crypto traders are fishing for suckers, posting misinformation and rumors and hoping investors will fall for it. Don’t play into their hands; seek advice through trusted and unbiased sources, and make your investing decisions accordingly.
I suggest trading with tiny amounts to start with to become familiar with the Bitmex site. Then you can increase your leverage to x100 as you gain competence. (i.e Buy 1 Bitcoin worth $11,670 with 0.01 BTC worth $116.70). A position at x100 leverage is quite likely to make a lot of money quickly or to get wiped out in a matter of minutes.
The task of maintaining the credibility of a blockchain, verifying different transactions on a block, and adding blocks to the chain is done by miners. The miners need powerful computers that run specialized mining software to verify or process a block. These mining applications and computing technology are needed by miners to solve cryptographic puzzle that are necessary to process a block.
Hi, unfortunately I bought bitcoin at the peak, then it fell all the way down before I switched over to some of the Altcoins you mentioned, however I didn’t realise the time I switched over to them, that the Altcoins were at a peak and when I switched they then fell down too leading to more of a loss. I also, feel a lot of those coins have maybe had their days of 100x, 10x their gains and had more potential at the time you bought into them.
In my opinion, to be successful in day trading, you need more capital and more experience on average because cryptocurrencies are more volatile and of them do not have enough liquidity. I also believe a lot more trading “intuition” is needed.
To back-up the new Robinhood Crypto feature, the company is adding new two-factor authentication options including integrations with authenticator apps to ensure people don’t get their wallets stolen and dumped. “There are several senior world-class people that we’ve hired recently that are building the system in-house” says Tenev. Still, the move paints a giant target on Robinhood’s back. If the company gets hacked, or individual users get robbed, it could tarnish the fintech startup’s reputation.
When you place a buy or sell order, Robinhood gives you an estimated price, connects to a slew of trading venues, exchanges, and market centers to find the lowest price, and uses its economies of scale to improve to score better prices over time. To counter market volatility, Robinhood puts a “collar” around your trade so if it can’t execute it at close to the estimated price, it waits for the price to return or lets you know.
They’re focused on small technological innovations that help build hype for a coin in the short term, without giving much thought about how the coin will exist outside of the exchanges and crypto community. This gives you a huge advantage.
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..
Setting goals and placing sell orders: always set your goals by putting sell orders. You don’t know when a whale will pump your coin up to catch your command (and pay a reduced fee on the “maker” side, remember?).
Back in early September, Chinese regulators banned initial coin offerings (ICOs) in the country and also subsequently required domestic exchanges to suspend crypto-to-fiat currency order-book trading services.
Easy – just login, go to the cashier section of your broker account, and select “Withdraw”. Withdrawals are processed between 24-48 hours. You may be asked to submit proof of identification before withdrawing.
Cost: The cost is 0.1015 BTC i.e. $1,167. This is the maximum you can lose should the price fall by 10% to $10,500. If the price was to crash to $5,000 your loss is still limited to $1,167. This is the beauty of the Bitmex contract. Trading Futures Contracts on the CME, for example, there is no such limited risk facility — you can lose a lot more than your initial margin.
The best example of an effective ICO campaign is that of Ethereum, which had Ether as its token coins. In 2014, Ethereum’s project successfully raised USD18 million in Bitcoins; the value of Ether during the ICO was just USD0.40. The project went live in 2015; and by 2016, Ether’s value had spiked and went as high as USD 14 and 2018 traded in exhanges over 1000 dollars.
This is one of the most important cryptocurrency tips. By looking at the number of wallets vs the number of active wallets and the current trading volume, you can attempt to give a specific currency a current value. You can then make informed decisions based on today’s market price. The more accurate your predictions, the greater your chances for profit.

Day trading is so dangerous you have a high percentage of your trading funds in 2–3 currencies and always on exchanges. To be able to pay for your life with day trading you need to have a bunch of skin in the game, like a huge pile of money-minimum 10k. Very few have the money to begin with to enter into realistic day trading on any type of exchange.
