Another reason many choose Bitcoin over traditional stocks and fiat currencies is because of its fantastic volatility. To a long term investor, volatility might be a bad idea and promotes instability. However, day to day traders can benefit enormously with the amount of volatility which is seen in Bitcoin every day. We are all aware of the reason for this volatility as well, as all new currencies experience it. This is especially true when knowledge of the currency is low alongside the relatively low network effect. But this doesn’t mean the currency is bound to fail, and all it means is that Bitcoin needs more time to mature. For a day to day trader, those are golden words.
Bankroll management – This is actually a gamblers term but it applies to day trading just as much. It means managing the amount you are trading on a daily basis. You should be trading about 1 to 3 percent of your total bankroll on trades per day. So if you have $10k in crypto, you should be day trading with no more than $300 a day at the most. Now I know right now you are probably saying that is too low, but trust me, successful day traders who actually make a living doing this do NOT trade a huge percentage of their bankroll everyday. If you do that, eventually you will lose it all, and this is the biggest mistake I see people making when trying to day trade. They are trading with 50% or more of their total bankroll in crypto. The only reason you should ever do that is if you have inside information.
Binance – Binance.com is a relatively new exchange platform on the market. The exchange is divided into two parts: basic and advanced. These two options show less and more information to traders depending on what is the preference.The shown charts can be changed between “Candlesticks” and “Depth” depending on what you like to look at. As this is a BTC exclusive website, all of the coins will be paired up against BTC. Binance is not for newbie trader, but aside from the non-user-friendly interface, but their website doesn’t have any lag issues at all which is crucial for day traders who have to react fast to the market.
It makes no sense for each trade to be a taxable event. You could make $100 on a trade and then mins later lose $150. You don’t pay taxes by the trade. You pay them by the year or quarterly based on your earnings.
Many investors now recognize cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) as asset classes. Therefore, knowing the three ways to trade this cryptocurrency can be useful for Bitcoin investors (and can be applicable to other cryptocurrencies).

Well you will get my vote which in turn hopefully gives you money 🙂 not to mention possible YouTube incentives so it’s a win win! I really want to become a trader so I hope this gets me on the path, I’m very serious about it and want to teach others once I get going.
The cryptocurrency market is outrageously speculative right now and just about everyone has an opinion on how prices will move, or the value of a coin. Trades made on the basis of false information can lead to big losses, and this is something every new trader will be exposed to.
Once you’re comfortable with GDAX, you probably won’t use Coinbase anymore. GDAX charges lower transaction fees than Coinbase—ranging from 0.1% to 0.25% for “takers” (buyers) 0% fee on “makers” (sellers), with the fees varying based on monthly trade volume.
What would be a good portfolio for a newbie today, I just keep losing with these popular Altcoins? Are you seeing just as much significant growth today (like doubling) as before with your portfolio? I need a fresh portfolio today that has just as much potential as the day when you had bought into your Altcoins. Can you also give an idea of the percentages of the spreads you mentioned in your wallet? Also, with the influx of coins/icos, do you think alot of coins will lose value and it will be harder to find the gem amongst the rocks?
Ethereum’s technology is already being used by super-popular projects around the world, showing great success, and offering a glimpse of a stable crypto future. I love Ether and hold a significant percentage of my portfolio in Ether.
It’s important to learn, but for now, If you’re just interested in trading and investing, having a basic common-sense understanding of business, consumer demand, and economics is enough to give you an edge over other traders (at the moment). Most of the current batch of traders are early cryptocurrency adopters, cryptocurrency “miners,” programmers, and basically people that are more tech savvy than business/market savvy.
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).
