I'd buy at the daily minimum

because then I would be able to sell at the highest rate and make profits of off the buying price

Buy low and sell high is not that easy to accomplish. It isn't true that prices go up in a single day. You won't be able to make profit in a single day. The Formula is Buy Low - Hold it until prices go high - Sell High.

I am just making sure I understand;  my decision is based on that the genie can only grant me one of the two choices and I can do act anytime I want in the mean time. 
If this is correct on how I understand the question:

I would sell high.  The reason I would do this is because I could spend all day buying all I can and then at the end, just sell at the high.  i would be sure to pay attention to the market and make sure the stock I am going after is going down.  If it was not, I would just not buy.

- Sell the 1st buy at profit 10-20%

That's why instead of buying coins at one time one should buy coins in small quantities regularly so you will get best average price because no one can predict which is high price and low price. For this purpose do not ever take loan for trading because some times you may need to wait for long time to get profits so if your trading with loaned money then you may end up paying more interest than profits

It is a good advice to reduce risks. I also usually buy very small quantities when ever I think prices are reasonably came down.

Buy in the botton and sell in the top is trading basic. So nothing to say about it. The only you need is learn how to always do it.

 Cheesy

Could you give me the code/algorithm/<whatever> to determine if the current price is the daily minimum? It seems you got some great concept, and I'm interested to implement it! Thanks in advance!

Well look at the price for the past week, bitcoin has been swinging between 310-330 everyday and you can benefit from it easily but there will be a day where bitcoin either goes way higher or gets dumped like 50-100$ and you might just lose all your previous profit

Exactly my strategy. Never wait for first profit because it is risky. Taking your small profits and doing this continously is preferred and adviced.

What's high and what's low, anyway ?

It's all relative and depends on what is your timescale - last year's low might be this year's high.

Best method is to buy and hold!
That's all you need to do.
If you can control your greed, fear and of course the temptation to make a quick buck you will do fine in the long run.

The very best thing you can do is to leave your coins in cold storage and that you quit trading altogether. When you account for all the risk, all the nerves lost and all the coins you are probably going to lose, even if you make some profits, in the end this just ain't worth a trouble. At least that's my conclusion about trading.

Since I quit trading I am a much happier man! Smiley

I think you are right, the time needed for being succesfull is very high, almost like a fulltime job or even more.
