A quick daily outlet of my thoughts including analsis of Bitcoin movements and brief insight into my daily strategy.
Any trades I open or close will be listed here. No values will be listed (think beer money, no Lambos or yachts on order… Yet!) I will include my reasoning for the trades and a description of my risk management will be explained.
Binance Bitcoin warning sent to my mobile phone early this morning. To me this is a very professional approach by a responsible cryptocurrency exchange. Especially since this market is completely unregulated.
Cryptocurrency exchanges, like Binance, do not have to issue a Bitcoin warning at all and to be honest it probably isn’t in their best interest to do so short-term. The market moving is how they make money.
Long-term for loyalty though from a customer/traders point of view this is certainly welcome.
I believed for a long while that these movements were fairly random and there must be some sort of luck involved in managing to work out where to place a buy or sell trade. I considered it to be ‘trading bots’ automatically knowing when to trade.
However, I have a very determined personality and refused to give up looking for the “key” to trading. These movements were too structured to be just luck.
If only I could work out what this is doing, where is it going?
After months of searching I actually found a pretty effective way.
Somebody called Ralph Nelson Elliott, who was a lot smarter than me, worked out that that all tradable assets on the stock market move in waves. This was I believe in the 1930’s way before the time of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency.
The good thing for us though is that the same trends still occur in cryptocurrency trading. Why? Well, it is all to do with everyone looking at the big chart together.
When we’re all working out our support and resistance lines, and looking at channels etc, we’re all buying and selling at particular points.
This creates a “wave” effect and equals an increase in price and retracements.
