It’s also good to lookout for which currency pairs are available: are you looking to trade Bitcoin for USD, Euros, or other fiat currencies. The location usually gives an idea of what’s on offer. However, the largest Bitcoin sites usually have many options for buying Bitcoin with government issued currencies. Bitcoin currency exchanges work in a manner similar to banks. You first deposit an amount of money in the currencies supported by the exchange, to your account in the exchange, then you use these balances to trade with other users of the exchange and then you are able to withdraw that money. Unlike over-the-counter transactions, there is no risk of losing money due to people not fulfilling their part of the deal, as long as the exchange itself does not commit fraud or withhold money.

Exchanging is done by placing “buy” or “sell” orders, which the exchange system software then matches with each other. “Buy” orders (or “bids”) are offers to buy Bitcoins in exchange for another currency at a maximum price-per-Bitcoin which is set by the seller. “Sell” orders (or “asks”) are offers to sell Bitcoins at a minimum price-per-Bitcoin. If the bid price of a buy order is higher than the ask price of a sell order, an exchange can be performed and the bid order, the sell order or both can be removed from the “order book”. Thus, at any given time, there is a price above which there are no more buy orders and a slightly higher price below which there are no more sell orders. Communication with the Bitcoin currency exchanges is commonly done using a standard web browser, over a secure SSL connection.

and indicator

The price will often go up or down according to what is happening in the news. For example, a big exchange getting hacked or a government announcing draconian legislation may make the price go down, whilst exciting new start-ups getting funded, established businesses integrating Bitcoin or friendly regulations being announced may all make the price rise. Trading the news directly is very difficult to do as your main strategy – because it’s difficult to always hear the news first and react instantly. Most of the time, the market will already have moved before you get there – although if you are an obsessive news junky who is always logged into an exchange website or app then you may be able to get their first often enough for it to be worthwhile. Another method is to capitalize on corrections. Often the market will over-react to big news stories as people get caught up in the moment or jump on the bandwagon without really thinking things through properly. Because of this a 20% fall, for example, will often be followed immediately by a 5-10% rise as the market corrects this over-reaction. This provides an additional way to trade the news and make a profit.

Fundamental analysis may be more familiar to stock market investors, but can also be used as a Bitcoin trading strategy. All it means is that you look at the fundamental data which affects the price – number of wallets, number of active wallets, number of transactions per day, volume traded on exchanges, volume reported by retailers who accept BTC, and so on. You then use this data to estimate what you think Bitcoin should be worth right now. You can then decide whether you think it is currently undervalued or overvalued (and how confident you are in that assessment) and then buy or sell accordingly.

There are many tools to help you profit, and minimize your losses. Two you should learn about are limit orders (which execute a trade at a certain price, whether you are there or not) and stop-losses, which can be used to lock in profits when the price changes direction after moving in your favor. You will also learn to read the market by keeping track of different indicators. Technical analysis is an extremely complex discipline, but you can start to understand the underlying trends and forces that shape the market by learning about volumes, moving averages of different kinds, and different patterns that emerge in the charts.

Methods of  Trading

Swing Trading

All of the methods described above are long or medium term strategies. They will probably take many months or years to generate a good return for you, and you can easily end up taking losses or making minimal profits for many months on end. A faster paced way to either make or loss yourself a lot of Bitcoin is day trading – buying and selling on the basis of short-term price movements, over the course of minutes, hours or days rather than months or years. The most common strategy for day trading is ‘swing trading’. This method uses a range of technical indicators (see the section below on technical analysis) to look for the turning points in short-term trends. You can then profit from the daily swings up and down in the price of Bitcoin, regardless of whether the long-term direction is up or down. This often involves looking for ‘support’ and ‘resistance’ levels. A support level is one where a downward price level is expected to meet resistance as buyers come into the market to pick up a perceived bargain, whilst a resistance level is one where an upward price move is expected to meet resistance of sellers taking a profit.

Leverage and Short Selling

There are two techniques commonly used by day traders to increase their profits from market movements. Leverage, or margin trading, means borrowing money on a short-term basis to speculate on the price of Bitcoin. The loan is paid back when you exit the position. For example: The price of Bitcoin is $500. You borrow $5,000 to buy 10 Bitcoins. The price of Bitcoin rises to $550. You sell your 10 Bitcoins for a total of $5,500. You pay back the loan of $5,000, plus interest (say, $50). Profit: $450, on a price movement of $50. Of course, you can also lose a lot of money this way: if the price goes down instead of up, you will lose ten times the price movement. This is what makes margin trading so risky – it is potentially extremely profitable, but can also be very costly.
