Title: Holding BTC vs Day trading or short term trading.
Post by: Zerogreens on November 04, 2017, 01:20:41 PM
So I have been in crypto for a while now, February precisely, and regrettably I wish I had never dabbled into day trading or short term trading. I have been burnt a lot trying to play the game of trading. Often times I end up buy too high thereby becoming a bagholder, and when I finally sell, it's at a loss.
So I can't help but wish I had just held on to my BTC. Would have been grinning from ear to ear today.  #Lessonlearned

Day trading or short term trading is not for everyone and requires a certain skill set as well as mental control. Although you say you've learned your lesson perhaps what you have learned could be used to have better results again in the future, you've identified that you buy too high so try and correct this and be even stricter with what price you buy at.

Honestly the day trade was risky comparing with the long term trade. But if you are seeing about the latest chart, The day trade needs a lot of the experience. If you are playing in the big market and you will be able to loss it just in a second. But another thing about just try again and try to avoid all of mistakes.
You are leaning a lot of lesson from there.

if you learn basic of trading then you can do daily trading and you can make profit as much as you want. but yes it still too risky because the price is always changing in every time so we need to follow the chart and the market to prevent getting loss in trade. i am sure that if we are doing trading in many times then we can have experience so we can trying to make profit even its just small profit so we need to be careful when we decide to buy and sell.

That totally depends on the bitcoin state at that current day/month/situation.If you ask me,at the current situation where prices are fluctuating so much,you can easily make good money from daily trading.If the price hasn't moved notably in a week or two,you can safely hold it for a long term trading.Easy as it sounds.

short term trading is not such an easy job, it really require a lot of practice and experience, without good experience. In short term investment it is too much important that one may have good experience, because short term investment is more risky than long term investment. It is too much important that you must be more active while doing short term investment. In long term investment you can take

It is essential to learn as much about technical analysis as you can. That is a skill. Anyone can learn a new skill. You just have to keep learning and be sure you are making an educated guess with as much research/chart analysis done as possible.

It completely depends upon the user, his necessity along with capital affordability. When the user can afford big, holding btc is good, because it is risk free. Day trading is the best to get regular profit, but needs long time to be spent on analyzing the market. Short term trading too is possible, but having diversified asset helps with profiting on short term trading.

Both are very profitable depend on the type of trader you are and the trading plans you have in place. Trading is very risky and days trading is more risky than buying and holding as the analysis is very hard. Days trading has to scape the market for little profit or loss opportunity and buying and holding are Targeting  for big profits in the long run. I have done days trading during my forexs and commodities trading and one thing that I have find out is that you can make good money today and lose all tomorrow but long term investment always end up in profits.

If you are new to all of this you should just hold BTC. Look how well it's been performing lately. At the beginning of the year it was around 1500 USD and now it's pushing past 7000 USD and the fun is just getting started. Expect to see bigger gains each year until it reaches it's full potential in about 30 years from now. The whole world still has to adopt Bitcoin, think about that.

I have been burnt a lot trying to play the game of trading.

i think this is an issue that we all have experienced.

what i do is two things. first i choose the market that i can speculate better and be more successful at. for example many of the altcoins are more suitable for me most of the times.
second i trade only when i am sure. my strategy is to never buy anything unless i have good reason to. i never buy to hope price goes up. i buy because i am fairly certain the price is going up. this can reduce the number of trades that i make but i prefer less trades and less profit with 0 loss than lots of trades with bigger profit but a lot of losses to negate all that!

I think that short term trading is the best alternative of the three as people that have the nerve to deal with crypto markets tend to earn on the long run as crypto markets are bullish. You'd be unlucky to buy stuff the top prior to another fall though, it had happened to many people but holders in the end were avenged by new all time highs.

we can not compare it one and another because it has its own advantage and disadvantage.
to be honest day trade is needed for them who want to read the market and sharpen their skill in trading.
holding or long trade is like a saving and do not require much skill behind it,because all that we need to do just holding it.
just like you i burned a lot of money because of short trade,
we burned it because we're thinking about how much profit that we will get everyday while doing a daily trade,
but in reality if short trade is a choice for them who want to sharpen their skill in trading not chasing for profit.
after a while you will understand what i am talking about,
because you will not forever holding it and sometime you will do the short one just to check and want to know how it goes,
so you can make a move for a long one

You mentioned that you were in the ship last February, so if you just have been patient and waited for a couple of months just what like most of us did here, you could have tripled your money no sweat and just by sleeping day in day out. I also dabbled into day trading a year ago and found out that the stress isn't just for me. I was successful on trading during crashes since the spread is too good to miss but focusing solely on day trading, I haven't had any success at. If you really want to get into the trading action, I advise you to just arbitrage and trade when there's a huge price gap in between different exchanges. These spreads help you gain profit the most and watching the markets like a hawk every day isn't worth it if you haven't had any official training/schooling about it.

I feel a bit better when some guys mentioned 'everyone's been burnt before'. Lol. At least I get to console myself I'm not the only poor decision maker.
Let's look at this for a minute. Around Feb this year $5000 could have fetched about 6btc. If I HODLed I would have had $5000 * 7, 7BCH, some CLAM and Gbyte airdrops etc etc.
All this would have been possible if I had taken the risk free way of HODLING! But no,  I had to trade some stupid altcoins!

Holders will make a profit without any doubt. But what about that pip hunters which called day traders? They gonna to lose after any sharp price change. Short term trading brings risks which can cause you to lose deposit.

Day trading is really risky stuff generally (IF we speak about stocks, shares, etc) but many many times riskier is trading cryptos. One day you win all, next day you can loose all -
 IF we speak about Alts.

But If we speak speak about BTC then I would reccommend to choose only long terms investment.

P.s I got burnt too in past even I am new in crypto world, relatively...

Daytrading is a skill. It is not for beginners. REALLY it isn't.

That said, daytraders need specialized tools. There are plenty out there for stock daytraders, futures daytraders and Forex daytraders. There is almost nothing for crypto daytraders.

Our PC software trading platform (www.medvedtrader.com) now if fully integrated with GDAX (and a bunch of other more conventional brokers) to pull down the data and to trade. It has all the features daytraders require -  charts, tech. indicators, scans, alerts, etc. This kind of software is common for traders in regular markets, but is severely lacking for crypto trading. That's why we connected it to GDAX, so that crypto traders can utilize the same methods to trade that Forex traders can (since crypto is basically Forex).

Integrations with other exchanges (Bitfinex and HitBTC to start with) are coming shortly.

It doesn't cost anything to try - go to www.medvedtrader.com, register, download the software and run it.

Choose to trade instead of holding might look like a good idea, but the true is that in most cases it isn't. History has shown that people who invest in a good asset and hold for the long term manage to outperform most traders.
The problem is that you hear more about people who make a lot of money in this market, and little regarding those who lose money, which are the vast majority.

In my opinion depend on the skill and psikilogis of trading that we have, if we dont have skill and can not control emotion for the better just hold strong fundamental coin like BTC and ETH, by make investment in these coin is easy way to make profit.  And if we have skill in altcoin trading(Paired BTC), better do short trading because the price of BTC going up fast now. And for longterm altcoin trading is very risky, because mostly altcoin now their price just pump dump.

The thing with trading is that it is very hard to consistently pull off profitable trades (every single day if you day trade). It all sounds great, buy low sell and everyone's coin will moon at some point and some other blablabla. But 9/10 times  (especially if you are trading in the current market) you will find yourself with coins that are worth 50% less than you bought them for. So what I like to do is capitalize on big market moved. Let's say the China crash of early September. We watched the price tank down and at around $3200 I've started buying the dip and a lot of big personalities in crypto did as well (e.g. Tuur Demeester openly tweeter that he was buying the dip). So you really want to capitalize on those kind of moves instead of investing in 20 altcoins or ICO'S.

For me because I dont have time to analysis the market and also sometimes I can not control emotion during trading, I prefer to hold BTC for longterm investment. By hold BTC is good idea and easy way  to gain profit from market. Day trading only fo expert trader and for  trader who has patiently.

not all the times you can earn on doing day trading, even if you got skills on how to handle your investments you cant still predict what will happen on the market therefore luck is still needed in order to earn a profit when trading. i believe holding is the best way to earn big income and also easier to to do than day trading because you dont need to watch the price oftenly but overall both of them has a risk.

I'm sure holding longer-term bitcoin will be surely profitable, bitcoin is keeping evolving and widely used. As comparisons look at bitcoin price from 2009 to nowadays the increments are huge. And I if bitcoin keep gaining attention I bet the price will continue the uptrend movement

For me in my opinion it's better to sell BTC in short term trading. Because you will never know when it will pump and dump :) as you can see there is a time which bitcoin getting dump and other coins will rise. Better sell it in short term trading then buy again if the price will dump.

Same here, I also have learned my lesson well in short trading. I did the same thing as you did OP and ended up more losses when selling until I decided to stop doing trading and go for long term trading instead. I left almost all of my altcoins on the same exchange site as I did when I did short term trading and just hold those coins for a couple more years, anyways it was my spare money I used to trade so I don't really need it yet as of now.

The volatility is high so i would go on investment in short periods of time, depending of the marketplace trend. If you can make a bonus of, let's say 1 dollar then you are on the right track, the result is positive, not negative. The same goes with bigger amounts of money.

Day trading seems so complicated as it requires more emotional control that in a daily basis. This management is hardly been effective as a human are full of mode swings and it will be something to be avoided at first hand. You were right, holding in long term is the best thing to do because it only requires patience and trust to bitcoin. And that is easier to achieve.

day trading is pretty hard as it requires eye coordination to watch the charts movements everyday and also it requires great timing to sell and make a profit. short term trading is good on bitcoin becuase bitcoins value is incresing in a short time and lastly  holding btc or long term trading is also good and verry easy to do because you will do nothing on it rather than checking the price once a month or a year , though altcoins is the best on this.

Instead of trading in other altcoins if you had investment money in bitcoin as part of your day trading routine you would have made a lot of money by now because the price of bitcoin is on the rise for a very long time and when the price of bitcoin keeps increasing and if you are a day trader in alt coins,shit like these happens,look at the market and make up your plan to be profitable.

For this purpose there are two very usefull tools. One is stop loss. place a limit where you sell at a loss, but is a loss that you expect you can recover from. The other is play with coins you believe long therm and where you are bag holding, just wait. the market have cycles and you you are in a red or even black cycle you just wait.

Any business based on bitcoin, would surely bring a good return to the owner now. As you said, if you have held the bitcoin you had, would have brought more profit by now. Still you have good time now. Better buy few bitcoins or earn bitcoins form this forum and hold what you earn. You may certainly get more profit including the one you expected earlier.

1 year is long term? That's still what I consider to be a short term investment. At this point it's safe to say that people who are looking to cash out some of their profits with the intention to buy back at far lower levels ($2000-$3000'ish), will definitely end up in a big disappointment. Especially when you consider that institutional capital is knocking on Bitcoin's doors.

Let's compare with short term , as I know bitcoin trading quite risky because their value still volatile compare with wall street trading
Lol. Traders are explicitly looking for volatility, which is something they can't get enough of. So no, it's not at all a disadvantage of any sort for these people. Of course, there is more overall risk, but that's what traders agree with when they are looking to benefit from this market's wild fluctuations. Also, you can't just compare Bitcoin's blatantly thin market with how insanely liquid stock markets for example are. Bitcoin's market needs time to catch up and eventually end up with more overall stability.

Yes buy more now and save it for the big profit in the future because bitcoin can be able to give a big profit for those holders of this coin and also those earlier investors who holds bitcoin for a long time and earn a profit.

Actually, day-trading is not a good idea IF you have a small capital invested in cryptocurrency. Small investors usually find themselves having a big LOSS in trading (daytrading) bitcoin because their small investment can't actually take the price adjustment. In average, bitcoin price change by plus or minus 5%, but in these past few weeks, bitcoin price has tremendously rise up by an average of almost 10%-20%. The problem here is that, if these small investors invested $100-$500 in bitcoin these past few weeks (price is $7,400), and the bitcoin price dropped suddenly by 20%, then that would be a less $100 from his investment. Holding is still the ideal thing in cryptocurrency.

Short term trading is also profitable, Even that your gaining small profits it will still grow when you save it all. Holding btc is more profitable but still you need to use some of your coins for your daily needs so i prefer that you should trade everyday and monitor the market if you use bitcoins for living.

It depends on what you want but all of your example terms is profitable and of course much better if you hold your bitcoin for long period of time because value of bitcoin are non stop to increase and if you have huge bitcoin it can generate huge amount of profit. But if you have small amount of capital much better to invest in in short term like trading and icos just you need time and more effort to research for good coin.

So I have been in crypto for a while now, February precisely, and regrettably I wish I had never dabbled into day trading or short term trading. I have been burnt a lot trying to play the game of trading. Often times I end up buy too high thereby becoming a bagholder, and when I finally sell, it's at a loss.
So I can't help but wish I had just held on to my BTC. Would have been grinning from ear to ear today.  #Lessonlearned

day trading and  short term trading is actually not bad nor good either and you can probably earn a good income on it if you know what you doing because you know trading is not an easy thing to do therefore you have much understanding and doing your own research about how stuffs works in order to adapt it and make a profit on it. though most of us are still prefer long term holding because that is seems easy to do compare to the  other two.

For this purpose there are two very usefull tools. One is stop loss. place a limit where you sell at a loss, but is a loss that you expect you can recover from. The other is play with coins you believe long therm and where you are bag holding, just wait. the market have cycles and you you are in a red or even black cycle you just wait.
It seems that you are a beginner in this field but do not get disturbed because it is very common to face losses at first. Trading requires a lot of experience and an analytical thinking to get the most out of it.

Just focus on the price of various digital currencies and only buy at low prices and sell when price is quite high. In this way you can earn profit that would be helpful to you for buying some more coins and repeating the cycle along with some savings that could be utilized for other needs.

Day trading or short term trading is not for everyone and requires a certain skill set as well as mental control. Although you say you've learned your lesson perhaps what you have learned could be used to have better results again in the future, you've identified that you buy too high so try and correct this and be even stricter with what price you buy at.
It is certainly not for everyone and that is the mistake most newbies in trading always make.
They usually feel they can just gamble their way into trading, make some decisions that they feel could be right and then end up being wrong.

They are always the FOMOs most time looking for the coin that is rising and then trying to quickly make some gains and just like the OP ends up being bag holders.

Anyone who wants to trade very good, should first consider the kind of coins they want to trade, then always look for the best position and then have patience until they hit with some strategies too, in case they are losing.

For me in my opinion it's better to sell BTC in short term trading. Because you will never know when it will pump and dump :) as you can see there is a time which bitcoin getting dump and other coins will rise. Better sell it in short term trading then buy again if the price will dump.
Everyone has his own opinion but I think otherwise. I think of holding of bitcoin as the most appropriate option. It is you who has to decide as per your own skillset and experience. For me, holding is the best thing to do but things may be little different in your case. Short term investment is also a very good thing to do but for that you needs to be very, much active and sharp minded person.

Short term trading is also profitable, Even that your gaining small profits it will still grow when you save it all. Holding btc is more profitable but still you need to use some of your coins for your daily needs so i prefer that you should trade everyday and monitor the market if you use bitcoins for living.
Short term trading is really very profitable if you have some good amount to trade with. I have been doing short term trading for months and I have made some very good increase in my BTC amount since then. You just have to find the perfect portfolio and then stick to them.

Once you have some pretty good strategies with your trading, you will never go wrong and that includes having strategies for getting out of losses too. Day trading is much more stressful and you can lose a lot if you do not do it well.

Good you have learnt your lessons and which obviously balls down to the fact that you did not learn before starting to trade or you just followed some signals blindly and you were led wrongly. The thing is that it is better to hold and not trade at all when you do not have the skills to trade because you will always get burnt. Lots of people have, and so many people will even in future. However, if you are good, short term trading has been very effective, for me anyway and you can make a whole lot from it.

Choose to trade instead of holding might look like a good idea, but the true is that in most cases it isn't. History has shown that people who invest in a good asset and hold for the long term manage to outperform most traders.
The problem is that you hear more about people who make a lot of money in this market, and little regarding those who lose money, which are the vast majority.

There are people who have a good touch for trading and for these kinds of people, trading would be the better choice. For most of us though, holding ia the safest way dealing with btc. If you're having a hard time with the ups and downs of the market, stay put with your btc

Short trading can be learned though but would really takes time for you to master it and would really depend if a person can easily caught up or do have the time to put into day trading which we do know it does really require too much time and effort fro you to master it.Even professional traders do commit mistakes and in the situation of newbie we do really make mistakes and cant be avoided since we do lack of knowledge but later on when we do already know those things we would really avoid that on next trades.

Patience and good skills is just what short term trading requires and then you can make a lot from it. Regarding ICOs that you have mentioned, it is really one very good way to trade too by investing in promising project ICO and then having a little patience to see them grow over time.

I have seen a whole lot of them growing hugely over time and giving the investors a very huge profit at the end.

It is good to hold the coin for the long term but you must be aware of the market situation too,if i made a profit and if i knew a big correction is coming i would sell off the coins and wait for the market to correct and then plan on entering it,rather than thinking about the future.

Agreed! If you are not having some good plan back in your mind, then youíll not be able to get anything good in result no matter which option you chose. I personally think of holding of bitcoin as the best option amongst all other options. It is because of the reason that holding of bitcoin actually means that you are going to have more amount of money at the end. The only thing which you need to do is to remain patient.

You should rather try to hold your coins because if there is on fork luckily, then the price gets high hence leading to earning money without any sort of investment. Day trading is short term method and it requires you to be experienced in this field so avoid it at beginner level.

I agree because I did try short term trading before and it really needs for you to have knowledge in trading and you have to have time for the short term or day trading itself if you want to earn profits everyday. It was hard for me and very time consuming so what I did was I switched to long term trading instead which also gives me ample time to learn more about trading.

Day trading is indeed very difficult and risky too. The only way to get profit from day trading is to have a VAST KNOWLEDGE of digital currency and a lot amount of coins.
I am saying a lot of amount of coins here because in day trading the price wont rise much but if you have invested a lot of coins , overall you will be in a lot of profit even if every single coin raise by a very small amount.

As you said holding the bitcoins will give good profits in the future but you can try trading with your bitcoins to earn extra earnings.So you just divide your bitcoins into two portions like 80% and 20%.Keep you 80% bitcoins in cold storage and try to do trading with your remaining bitcoins.Trading bitcoins is not difficult like altcoin trading the only simple rule in bitcoin trading is buy low and sell high.

Be active in the market. Keep yourself updated.

Or you can just HODL. No Noise. Peaceful Life. No worries of Market Manipulation. Peace out.

Holding BTC for less than a year is not profitable, better buy some good ICOs and get really good profits in a short period.
Btc has so huge capital than is not easy to double anymore.
Day trading is much more profitable but also has higher risks.

Holding bitcoin is basically for everyone as its easy as buying the bitcoins and forgetting about for a long time until value grows.

Then day trading and short term trading is basically for advanced crypto users who understand the crypto market and know what they are doing.
But I prefer just holding as its less stressful as compared to trading.

This is the most common mistake on which a certain trader would really experience specially if we are really new on it. Its normal and even myself do experience this thing but its not a valid reason for me to stop but decided to push even more but in more knowledgeable way.Since you do experience mistakes then you would really be aware on your next possible move since you do have the idea on what you would do on next trades.
Either holding or short term trading as long you do know on what you are doing you would really make profits.

So I have been in crypto for a while now, February precisely, and regrettably I wish I had never dabbled into day trading or short term trading. I have been burnt a lot trying to play the game of trading. Often times I end up buy too high thereby becoming a bagholder, and when I finally sell, it's at a loss.
So I can't help but wish I had just held on to my BTC. Would have been grinning from ear to ear today.  #Lessonlearned

I give you one example. if you have 0.1 btc, keep 0.05 btc in the bitcoin and use 0.025 btc for daily trading and use the other 0.025 btc for short term trading. from this example, I guess you can figure out what its mean for you and I hope you can solve your problem. you need to learn more about trading so with 0.025 btc, you can make a profit in daily and short term trading.

I have the same experience too, day trading didn't work for me that very well. Already lost around .2 BTC last year and was been victimized by spammers, which I think, members from pump and dump groups. I was new and very aggressive at that time, even I'm equipped with enough research and knowledge, things gets worst and worst, couldn't control my emotions and end up with nothing.

Anyways, its been a year already and I've already learned my lesson. I can handle my finances very well these days and decided to stick with holding rather going back to trading. Maybe, it's not really our forte after all.

I divided my budget, and do my plans accordingly. I can express this plan as shown below. It works for me for weeks.

-25% for day trade in altcoins.
-50% for holding.
-25% for ico participatin and contribution.

You can simple make this kind of plans.

Day trading or short term trading is better than holding bitcoin because you maximize the volume of your bitcoin but their the risk of getting losing it if your not good in trading.
Yes, at least, these two helps you to keep increasing what you are holding. It is more like having the function of holding and benefitting on the value and as well increasing what you have in numbers so you can even get more from it. Based on the risk though and how long I have been trading, it is a worthy risk to take for the good course.

If you asking here about that, you will get some various answer and opinion.
In my opinion, if crypto trading, i will do long term or holding my asset and selling them when its high.
Thats my prefer.
That is normal and that is based on everyone's experience. However, even holding for a long term is still more like trading but what you are looking at is to hold for a very long term rather than taking advantage of the volatility which though it is risky.  Holding is less risky, but like they always say, the more the risk, the more the potential to earn more.

I think it would be better to hold Bitcoin.The price of all the coins is now less.Bitcoin is increasing day by day and the price of altcoins decreases day by day.Now buy altcoins short time trading seems like a risk.Bitcoin can safely hold.Bitcoin is the safest investment.
Bitcoin is great investment no doubt in it. You caníteven think of bitcoin as dying currency so, if you believe in this fact that bitcoin will stay longer than better is to make bitcoin as you investment. Prices for bitcoin is increasing day by day and a time come when there will be so short number of bitcoins and only those will be profitable who would have held bitcoin with them.

It's actually depends on someone's capabilities but sometimes shit happens as we didn't expect it's coming.
Since the current price of bitcoin is in the sky and while the alts are left behind I switch to swing trading from day trading as the big whales now are also into swing trading so the pump and dump are hard to achieve as well as the day trade. It's kinda risky though so just hold it when you can bare the risk.

In trading I prefer to do short-term trading or day trading, usually I get benefit only from small pump pump which often happens. and for me it was so much fun ;D
Short term trading and most especially when it comes to positioning trading has always been a very good one to profit and reduce the risk of losing if you can do it right. I have made a lot from short term and the risks are less if you have a good strategy in knowing how to position your trade. However, it is always good if you have a lot to trade with whereas day trade can help you make a lot even with small bucks.

IMO day trading is better than only hold BTC. But it's also more risky than holding BTC cause you can lose sometime when you made wrong decision. But it'll be ok if you have enough experience and skill in trading :D
With day trading, you can make a whole lot of money in the process if you are smart and can make good quality decisions. It is obviously not an easy task to do but it can be worth it. I have known guys who used daytrading to increase the very little they have been holding for a while. The risk is huge and you have to know how to trade well as you can get burnt when you make the wrong move.

You should only do day trading if you are expert and have mastered all the skills required to read charts and other indicators. If you are just learning, than it is better to select 3 or 5 coins and invest equal amount in them and hold it for long term. Even if 2 coins wont make you good money, other three will.

If you trade Bitcoin and are good/lucky enough to time the buys and sells correctly, then you will make more money trading than holding. I have had times when the price of Bitcoin had a big increase and I sold, but the the price kept rising and I lost out on some more big profits. My suggestion is to hold some Bitcoins for long term and trade a little. This way you are doing both and you won't miss out of big gains like I did. Another negative to day trading is that it takes a lot of your time if you want to do it right. You have to be watching the charts every day.

Precisely, you don't need to choose between those 3 because all of them are going to give you profits if you are going to do it in the right way, if you are only excelling in one of those three, then you don't have to do it all, just pick one, and focus on it then that is it, that is how you are going to make profits that you wanted, though doing all of those will give you more.

Day trading seems so complicated as it requires more emotional control that in a daily basis. This management is hardly been effective as a human are full of mode swings and it will be something to be avoided at first hand. You were right, holding in long term is the best thing to do because it only requires patience and trust to bitcoin. And that is easier to achieve.

Of course, in the long term period it is more profitable just to hold your bitcoins. There many "non-system" risks in trading, even with very accurate work of trader. These include-manipulation of the market by whales, changing the rules of your exchange and much more. And do not forget the lack of regulation in most countries - it also complicates the work.

I agree with you because there are too many things that will happen in the cryptocurrency and if we are not ready then we cannot make any profit and we are going to lose much money. I think it is better to just hold bitcoin if we don't have any skills and we cannot control our emotional status and we are going into panic situations. it still safe to just holding bitcoin and don't take a look at the market in every day to avoid panic situations and we stay calm if the worst thing is to happen.

I agree. There is no the skills nor emotion control then i'm sure that we may panic sell when the market fluctuate.
Now, many people are joining the crypro market without preparation of knowledge before, this is too dangerous because the movement of market is very big, we can easy many coin that its price can go up or down more than 30% in a day, if we can't know what is happening in the market then many potential you will buy at high price and sell low price.

Holding BTC became really like a cliche but too effective of a strategy now when it comes to trading. Like the factor driving us to do a hold will always be due to instability. Day trading became like a greedy move for me, but if I somehow need an emergency fund I am taking up that strategy mostly. Short term is much more of a emotional strategy for me, while I don't put up much of an emotion for trading so I don't do these. Holding BTC for long term prove effective but too much of a strategy that makes my trading a bit "tasteless".

I think the right way to trade is an only long term.
You buy it and silence it a few months, then we can see that the price keeps increasing.

And buy it should be at the right time. Suppose February to March a few months ago when altcoin was completely destroyed. Well, we can see it now, the market is on fire and it's more than 50% rise compared to last month.

That depends on your capability either as an investor or trader. If you have a good knack on how the market words, and you can commit to actually follow it closely, then trading can be a good alley for you because it could really give a lot of profit, and the good part about it is the idea that you can get it seemingly real-time, unlike holding, which is a passive venture so to speak because you would only need to buy, and basically, forget about what bought until such time it would be ripe for selling.

I think that at the moment you should trade bitcoin in the short term, you can see that the market is fluctuating continuously and it is difficult to guess, bitcoin prices are also fluctuating a very large day so if you Long-term investment in bitcoin will be very dangerous.

Right.As far as i know,day trading really needs more experience and skill.You cannot just buy anytime and end up at loss.You have to study all its chart movement so you will be knowledgeable if its best to make day trade that time.If you're not so sure about it,you can choose to hold your investments for a long time.Many have become rich too following this method.

I believe that at the present time you should trade by day, you can see that bitcoin prices in the past few days are constantly adjusting in huge amplitudes and will survive a lot of risk if you trade them. Therefore, to minimize the risk and control the capital you should trade, have specific plans on profit and stop loss.

All this decision should according which level price you bought Bitcoin, for example if you bought BTC in a week ago in my opinion you have to hold it in a few month because the price has more possible to going up to $20,000 or possible to surpass this price.  Technical analysis is very helpfull to know the price in overbough or oversold.

I think that short term trading is the best alternative of the three as people that have the nerve to deal with crypto markets tend to earn on the long run as crypto markets are bullish. You'd be unlucky to buy stuff the top prior to another fall though, it had happened to many people but holders in the end were avenged by new all time highs.
I have the same view as you, can see that the market in recent days are constantly fluctuating and in very large areas, so the commercial by day will minimize the risk for you. Short-term trading helps you to earn instant profits and reduce risk when bitcoins fall sharply while you are holding altcoin. If you trade long term, the risk and damage will increase dramatically over time and you will not be able to preserve your capital.

I think be a bag holder is not too bad and most importantly is you can analyzed it well.
But a day trader will be a choice when you don't have enough of ability to analyze the coin.

to be a trader crypto it's not easy for us to do, especially if we new just know him, to be a trader today we must have a good analysis and strategy to be able to gain profit, if we can not to trade day, we will have defeat , we better invest only, by choosing to buy coins that have good potential, to be kept for a long period of time.

In my personal mind it depends on the skills and psychology of each of us. If we don't have this two points enough then we can't control our emotional status and may panic sell everything that we have.
Time and skillset which you have are the most important things and that they are the most significant things in helping you in making this choice of going for either short term investment of money or long-term investment of money. I will personally go for long term investment of money but if you want to make fast earning, then you must rely on short term investment of money or day trading.
Right.As far as i know,day trading really needs more experience and skill.You cannot just buy anytime and end up at loss.You have to study all its chart movement so you will be knowledgeable if its best to make day trade that time.If you're not so sure about it,you can choose to hold your investments for a long time.Many have become rich too following this method.
Only those who have years of experience in trading they can make money in day trading it needs a lot of time and analytical skills and crypto knowledge, more importantly, you must know when to invest and where to invest. you have other work to do then don't choose this day trading to go for long term holding.

One of the simplest ways, but not the fastest, is the participation in the Bounty campaigns of ICO organizers. For the fulfillment of certain tasks you get their coins, which you can then sell for bitcoin and just hold it. Then you can trade with this money or buy equipment and mine cryptocurrencies.

I myself prefer short-term trading because it is very fast to develop bitcoin and also hold for the future.
I think we should only invest bitcoin in the short term at the moment, you can see that although bitcoin prices are recovering very strongly in the past few days but overall the bitcoin price is still in cycle By the end of 2018, you should only trade short-term at this time, which is safe and profitable. You should not invest long-term because the risk is very high.

The prices on the market still decreases better to hodl our coins because the higher profit returns when we take a long term investment.  Short term investment is not yet ready it can gain losses of coin ,aside for that we're too pressure in day trading as the matter of fact long term investment can analyze and determine the best strategies how to success.

Holding BTC vs Day trading or short term trading.                 IMO day trading is better than only hold BTC. But it's also more risky than holding BTC cause you can lose sometime when you made wrong decision. But it'll be ok if you have enough experience and skill in trading.bitcoins i suggest that you should hold it in short term since bitcoin price inflates very fast this time like what happened this week bitcoin fell around 5500 due to the cancellation of segwit 2x but in just 1 week it recovered so holding it within a month is suitable.

You have learn a hard lesson there Man and everyone here has his or her own story to tell on how one has lost money in one way or the other. One thing is for one to realise his/her mistake and work toward not repeating same thing in the future.
Everyone has his own way of doing the things and that he does the things the way he wants to do the things and that you canít copy the way others are doing their job. However, you need to think and decide the things the way you want to do and the way you think you can make a better earning as this will give you a better chance of making more earning and can help you in having a comfortable living.

daily trading can be a good option only if the market is rising like a few days ago and if all coins we have increased, we can easily to sell the coin to make a profit. but it still difficult to daily trading if we are not watching directly in the market and determine which coin that will be increased. holding bitcoin can also help and only sell when the price increases and I think we can do this as we know that bitcoin price increases and decrease with a different price so our chance to make a profit will bigger.

That is one of the important point for understanding the concept of day trading and long term investment. When someone is indulged in day trading, he has to count the market ratios and shares and keep on calculating profits and losses at different points in a day. So in all this mess up, he really canít analyze the basic nature of coin. Coins are continuously changing the way so he canít really understand this.

That's what will always happen to a beginner trader and that's normal. I suggest, to learn without losing money by creating a demo account which is being offered by some trading website. This will be essential if you will use it in real time trading.

Nowadays, the prices on bitcoin still decreases and the market is unpredictable so investors strategies is to daily trading coin to have a source of income but in my analysis BTC is the most precious coin in crypto world so better to hodl because we can get enormous profit at the right time and I still believe it has potential in near future as our single currency.

I would prefer holding mate. It's the passive approach and as much as you can earn more by day trading. It is also so much more risky compared to holding that not everyone is fit to pursue that kind of venture. It may be easy to do on paper, but there are so many considerations one must take before being settled and a pro in trading. So, for me, who can't spend much time to learn all that, I just stick to the safer venture and that is holding.

I think you should not trade long-term bitcoin at this point, you can see that the bitcoin price in the past few days has increased but in long term, bitcoin prices are still in the bearish cycle so this is only is uptrend in short. Therefore, you need to be very careful when trading bitcoin, so trade short term.

This is actually true which you would really need up to learn lots of things into trading before you would able to suit out yourself on doing day or active trading.Some people might done it but it isnt really easy.Risk factor is high and they do already aware on that one and they do embrace the possibilities on losing big money on short timeframe.I guess the thing that boost up their dedication is on the reward given which is really decent compared on just holding bitcoin alone.

I believe that trading by day is the best option at the present time, you can see that the price of bitocin in the past days is constantly fluctuating and difficult to predict, so that it can successfully trade and low risk you need to have a specific trading plan so that you can handle every situation that can happen and not be too heavy losses.

I prefer for daily trading because I think daily trading is safer and more profitable, when daily trading you can develop the trading capital you have to buy some other coin so you can buy some existing coin and potentially to be able to generate profits.

You just said that trading will earn you quick profit and yield more profit than holding.
The problem is bitcoin still volatile so the bitcoin value can change unexpectedly.

When you just hold most of your bitcoin, you've nothing to worry because you have commit to keep hold no matter what will happen until you hold at your prefered year !

I think in this situations, we can do day trading or short term trading because in every market, many coins that want to increase and we can have much option to buy the coins. I see that in bittrex or poloniex for example, many coins that increase significant and giving a good moving so I think we can try to do day trading to make a profit. besides that, we can do day trading for trading bitcoin too because bitcoin is up and down in many times so it will give us another profit too.

There are really members who are really good at doing short term trading and even profiting daily by taking advantage of the wild price swing specially in the last 3 months. However, this time in a market like what we are seeing today (bull run), I don't think that is its profitable. This is the best time to do long term hold simply because the price is slowly gaining some ground and next thing we know we already in the $10K mark. So yes, short or day trading has its advantage, but it you don't want any hassle, holding is the best option for almost all of us.
