Is daytrading really just meme? people have been successful with it so I think it really depends on how you do it But I got into it yesterday, predicted a downtrend since 8800. I tried to catch falling knives and ended up losing 75% of my entire holdings
5% sure as hell aren't showing you how to make money on youtube
What was the total of your holdings? 100 bucks?
.4btc Yes, I'm a poorfag
if you are day trading and you are not a robot it will probably not end well
do the 5% use TA and common indicators or is it all just a meme?
how do I decrease this probability?
Daytrading is a sure way to lose money, if you actually plan on trading then you should do month or 6 month trading, anything less will and you will get rekt by Bots
I would said the same thing myself after losing money but the thing is people do actually make money off of it. how do I become part of the 5%?
don't get emotionally attached to your money
>I FUCKING SOLD MY LINK end yourself. that was the worst decision of your life
got it what else?
well, I have to increase my stack don't I? daytrading is just a means to an end for me to increase my stack
don't take advice from people on Veeky Forums
I tried it and suck at it, lost like $100 that way it's not a whole lot in the grand scheme of things but it made me realize I was delusional about the whole trading thing
some people here actually give good advice or at least they did before Q4 last year
winners don't quit unless it's that hopeless
how the fuck did you lose 75% of your money if you predicted a downtrend from 8.8k and we're at 8k atm?
thought I could time the market on the few upswings I also closed too soon on a lot of my trades I feel like a retard
Link me discord and I'll talk to you abiut it in person
It is not a meme, but you're going to have to do some of your own research and figure out ho to apply TA well. The most important thing you should keep in mind is that TA is never a predictor, but it does incredibly well at analyzing market sentiment and identifying long-term highs and lows. Your best bet is to do research on TA patterns and try to apply them to previous crypto charts, obscuring the rest and guessing the result. You will learn over time
Also, not everyone does TA well. Lots of terrible charts out there. Stick with fundamentals and you will be fine.
I've made about 2.2k off of trading in the past three hours with the volatility. I'm not even very good at it.

How is that possible ? It down trended 10% and you lost 75% ????? Unless you literally made like 15 trades in a row selling bottom and buying top I don't think thats even slightly realistic.
I don't think day trading is so bad in markets like we had recently. It enabled me to increase my holdings today, even though the market dropped as a whole. I would have lost more money if I had just held everything, no matter which coin it was (I'm not using tether, because that defeats the purpose of cryptos).
Don't go all in, ever. Limit your exposure when day trading- don't risk more than 5% of your capital, and always have an out.
can you point me to where I can learn more about it?
youtube vids don't seem so good at it
I'll upload my order history in a while
teach me pajeet?
easy buy high sell low but you go short.how the fuck is that hard?
5% won't let me do much :(
do you think we're going up?
unless you are a bot I don't think trying to time every fluctuation ends very well.
>But I got into it yesterday, predicted a downtrend since 8800 if it's a downtrend why the fuck are you buying and not shorting
If you are going to day trade do it on the 4hr candles and always have a reason for taking the position you are taking
I can't find out how to download historical data I don't know how to work with the api
what the actual fuck?
The point is that you make gradual growth. If you go all in all the time, you risk your entire capital. Sometimes that can pay off, but as you just experienced, you need to be able to walk away from any position if you're gonna last.
This. You need to know what your expectation is, and gauge risk/reward. Reflect on your strategies, keep detailed logs, and improve on them.
cause I'm retarded and tried to catch falling knives ayt thanks
Jesus, we're not gonna handhold you. If you can't work with an API, don't. Grab a csv somewhere and fuck off to excel.
>historical data >cant figure out api >but i will risk everything i have dude.maybe just maybe this isn't for you
how much leverage do you use? it's hard to make a lot with 5% on .1 btc
Trade btc/doge it's super easy almost not impossible to lose
Make a temporary email and message me at [email protected] with GuerillaMail. I'll send you a chat link, and we can talk further.
The top day trader on ETORO is up 800% this month, and he's not even buying coins just betting on the at high cost.
then use 50x leverage you twat
just sent you an email did you get my file?
Yes, and I have replied
How is it possible for bots to prevent you from making gains? If I place a buy order lower than the asking price and a sell order higher than the asking price, will bots perpetually trade sideways until I cancel my orders?
no, they can't
How do you daytrade without getting eaten by the fees?
How do i use MACD? Is it like RSI? I already am using that so is there a point in using MACD as well? Like if there is a divergence between RSI and MACD what does that mean?
Are you trying to trade on GDAX?
you qualify for a rebate on bitmex if you're the maker
No idea. Gdax whale making if interesting. I am tethered atm so I am betting on down
risk management you utter fucking moron
you lost 75% of your stack because you took waaay too much risk
its not a meme, its literally free money
just set %2 trailing stops and buy/sell on RSI crosses
got it thanks yeahhh learned my expensive lesson it's retarded in hindsight
>how do I become part of the 5%? bots
don't fall for the daytrading meme unless you are part of a group, if you have no friends to trade with you join this discord
bots are for passive income or arbitrage, you don't need them to actually make profit
>MPKXung pajeet? I'll bite
>RSI crosses Relative Strength Index crosses? what does that mean?
yep, when the two lines cross buy/sell, has a pretty decent success rate, paired with a simple %2 trailing stop if you get pretty much more than 50% trades correct you're making money
