Are you playing with the calculator again?
>>
>>2990385
Don't daytrade, how many times have you heard people say that, they don't say it for the lulz, you will lose your money instantly
>>
Listen faggot, that 1% is trivially easy when you have $100 to your name from sucking 200 dicks at the truck stop and want to play big time crypto day trader

but guaranteeing yourself $10k daily when your bankroll is $1,000,000 is a different beast, you will lose levels of money people commit suicide over on the regular and there's no way you'll be able to suck dick fast enough to replenish it

It's only 1%
>>
>>2990457
banks offer 0.2% YEARLY on savings account
>>
>>2990467

That's because they the pocket the extra 0.8% for themselves, probably a lot more actually
>>
1%? I literally 4x my money in the last days, you'd have to be literally retarded to make only 1%
>>
You can make 10% gains a day, half of which will of course be taxed, but the timely efforr isn't better than waging.
Looking at the prices once a week suffices ti make gains with crypro as long as the market is geowing like that
>>
>>2990457
It's not realistic. Crypto is volatile. Daytrading will lose you money. One trade a day is a metric fuck ton. A lot of people make huge gains in this space, but it's zero sum and for every profit there is a loss. >>2990398 This. Stop playing with the calculator.
>>
If you formulate a winning strategy and day-trade with enough vigour you can expect to easily pull 5% gains daily. Compounded rates of return will enable you to turn 1BTC into 4.321942375 in 30 days time.
That's a profit of 432% per month. Most professional hedge funds average 15% PER ANNUM.
At the current rate of return you'd make $11297.59 your first month at.

To any newfags, just remember these posts. They're not titillating, they're not fun to imagine, but they're true. If you come in with your lunch money and start gambling, you are going to lose your ass, and someone out there worth 10 million dollars is going to take it from you. It's that simple.

Dumb fuck use money+risk management effectively and you'll be fine. Yeah you'll take some losses, but you can easily average 5% daily returns if you use proper TA and FA while removing emotion from trades.
>>
>>2990507
This, but you really ahve to stick with your strat, 1% is very realistic considering the current volatility on most coins, aim rather for 3% on each trade and you're set.

>>2990385
pretty sure if you just HODL you'll get close to that off bitcoin

If you do average 5% per day, by the end of the year your money would have multiplied 54 million times.

Hodling is best for 90% of people.
You still get amazing gains, with reasonable risk.

Doing trades while being unskilled is just greedy and will work against you.
>>
>>2990385
100% realistic if you just lend your shit with a good rate

1% gains aren't unrealistic because you can't come up with a winning strategy, they're unrealistic because you'll outgrow the market. Getting from .05 to .1 is much easier than getting from 2 to 4.

Newfag here. What about moon missions? Let's say I keep 90% of my money in BTC but that last 10 percent I use for moon missions a couple times a week (like SIGT and OMG the past couple weeks) and then dump the gains back into BTC.

Is it better to just dump everything in BTC and hodl for years? Shoud I be hodling these other coins too rather than cycling them back to BTC? I feel like if you buy thousands of a coin at 10 cents per coin and it has the potential to jump to a dollar that's a reasonable risk. But I'm also a filthy newfag

what did he mean by this? math says moon missions of 50% gains with proceeds going into btc > hodling btc
>>
>>2991955
That's reasonable risk management. BTC is your hedge, it will be the main focus of accumulation. People who get fucked over on crypto are idiots who go all in on a single coin. I did this when I was new except my definition of all in was the 100 dollars I initially started out with. I realized that I was losing too much trying to day trade with that while some days I made appreciable gains. Main lesson I learned was to only put money into coins I could tell had potential and bail if I lost more than 10%. Learning to set sell orders at certain targets helped a lot. Basically if you treat crypto like a strategy game instead of slots, you won't get fucked.
>>
good response bro thanks. i'm also playing with small money for a couple months to get the hang before moving real money into it.

my real weakness at this point not knowing whether to hodl instead of selling for something like a 10% loss.

example: bought a couple hundred bucks of some OMG yesterday, it started dipping, I got out early and put that money into a late SIGT wave so I broke even. If I had held in OMG until today I'd have 25% more money.

Should you just be methodical about it and ALWAYS take the 10% hit rather than risk getting wrekt or should you try to hodl in certain situations with these moon missions?
>>
>>2992300
>moon missions
>hodl
Both of these will lose you money, the first will stop you from realizing your gains and the second will see you holding bags.
>>
>>2992740

Its good that you have small money while you're learning the basics. WHen I start out, .1btc was a massive input ino a any coin for me. Now it is very very casual, and my portfolio often swings between .8 btc a day sometimes.

Those shitcoincs can moon yeah, but you have to get in VERY early and watch it like a hawk due to the lwo volume. ANy whale, even a shark, could fill the sell order book on a sub 10btc volume coin at any point. DOn't get greedy, take your percentages day by day, try not to go for the moon mission in one day.
>>
Newfag here starting bitcoin trading, what are these terms? Hodl, moon missions, etc. I've got $80 in BTC, trying to learn the game and make a couple bucks for shits and giggles.

>>2990385
1 percent in USD or BTC? I made more than that this weekend.

Anyone have that quote about compound interest? It went something like "using compound interest, you can multiply your money 100-fold in 50 years, by which time it will be worth nothing"

-25% really looks like the best option to sell here... (because y'know, you can't sell immideatly when it falls 2%)

1% every day, for a year is 37x your original investment.

>>2993547
All in on one coin. Once a day, sell when you're up at least 1%, and buy back in at the original price (with 1% more money). You end up with 1.01^(365) times your original investment. People saying they can make 4-5% a day, forever, are forgetting the days when you get absolutely assfucked by an unexpected 20% drop.
>>
>>2994291
sometimes it doesnt go up at all. plus you have to beat the commision
>>
>>2990385
you absolutely will if you just exercise a smidge of memetic research....
and if you've carried an analytical mind for your entire life.
I think that's a huge factor.
If analytical thinking isn't apart of your life philosophy then just get the fuck out.

1%? easy. Just read white papers & watch numbers (not just tickers), your subconscious will chew on that shit and sift out statistical noise.

I say easy because we're in a growth trend.
It's really hard not to see the "Branded" creature behind every coin.

I tried short term trading stocks for the past couple of weeks or so. Did a good bit of reading and research beforehand, picked my stocks fairly well, I'm still down 10% overall.

It's a tough game to win. The market is very fickle on a short term basis and people with much more tools and knowledge than you struggle to get by with it, remember that. I knew I had to learn this the hard way so I started with only $500.

It's timing the market that's nigh impossible and part of what's critical in the short term. Computers and full time traders will do it better than you.

I'm basically planning doing the sensible thing at this point: picking stocks in companies I believe in for the near future and letting it sit there. Also monitoring it to make sure I get out in case of a crash or correction, but not much else you can do.

If 1% is so easy for the geniuses here, why don't they start a fund and make 370% yearly returns.

You could probably become billionaires or at least centa-millionaires pretty easily if you kept it up for a while.

HODL means hold long term, don't try and day trade. Moon missions are when coins shoot up in value like NEO this week.

>>
>>2994907
panic selling and stop loss
>>
>>2994907
Because they want to be daytraders. If you buy a bunch of coins but they tank below your initial buyprice, you'll have to wait and wait and wait for it to return. Could take a day, maybe 2, maybe a week, maybe more. This is what they don't want to wait for, cut their losses and move on to the next one in hopes of regaining that loss.
>>
>>2994510
> picked my stocks fairly well, I'm still down 10% overall.
you clearly didn't pick your stocks well you idiot
>>
>>2994984

They all rose in the end, barring a few. I didn't ride my gains long enough and was too hesitant on my losses (and stop losses are literally useless). I wasn't picking badly, just timing badly, you can't have the slightest bit of nonchalance and must be paying attention to your shit all day.

But you're wise anyway so I'm sure you'll make 300% annual gains easy.
>>
>>2994547

thanks bro
>>
>>2990385
It's pretty easy for me but only if i trade a small amount (50USD), big trades are practically hopeless unless you're confident that volume and pressure is good enough to break your walls
>>
>>2990467
yeah, artifically low interest rates due to fed maniuplation.

Actual savings accounts pay anywhere from 5-15%. Still a lot less than 1% a day, but not .2%
>>
>How realistic is it to pull 1% gains daily by day-trading stocks or crypto?

considering bitcoin has averaged 16.6% rise per day over the last 7 years I'd say your odds of making 1% a day in the crypto world is pretty damn good if you don't ruin it by buying shitcoins.
>>
If you go all-in day-trading a major exchange (e.g. BTC-BCC right now), you can easily do 1%, assuming you're allowed to have hodl days and then make up for them later with the 5-10% days that come along every once in a while. The big issue is when there's a full market crash; you have to know when to cash out/go to USDT.

Serious question to those of you who have been here for a while

What are your experiences trading in shitcoins like SIGT on small exchanges(like cryptopia) vs. trading more secure coin exchanges like Bittrex?

Do the small coins go boom often enough to make it worth it?

Very easily.

That's why all the most successful investors have average returns of 300%+ per year. Just trade with extreme leverage and make 1% per day, you'll become a billionaire within a few years.
>>
>>2990452
I've been thinking about this... It's easy to have iron hands when it's only a couple g's on the line, but watching 300k turn into 200k over the course of a couple weeks must be nerve wracking.
>>
>>2997043


yea extreme leverage, so when you have a bad trade you can lose all your money,
>>
>>2997140
But it's easy to do, it's so easy to make 1% daytrading per day, why not just trade at 100x leverage?
