Depends on what amount you have set on it and how much longer you can take to hold on your beloved coins since all trades matter on your decision, And you should take wise counter action before casting your decision since you might gonna lose some profits nor capital if you patience is quitely bad upon executing some trades on fellow altcoin alive there.

If you own the trusted account in any popular exchange, you can get the trade continuously if your trade set value is applicable for the people who need to sell or buy the bitcoin.
Once anyone opens the trade with you need to make the payment or wait to receive the payment. You have available cash and bitcoins in your wallet according to the trade that is must need to follow.

This is a subjective term and you will rarely find an exact same answer from everyone. Technically trade is something that takes place for the short term (for example 1 minute to 3 days), anything above that is an investment in my opinion. When it comes to the market hours I have noticed that, ideally, people usually hold the position for 5 minutes to up to an hour or two.

Yes, time frame for a trade must vary based on trading instruments rather than just traders. I mean one trader might have different time frame for different trading assets. I usually let my trades to be opened based on where I am trading and also what instrument I am trading. When I am trading forex and I am into scalping mode, a trade hardly takes 5 minute long and bitcoins I never go for trading all my bitcoins are into investment mode only.

My altcoin trading takes various time frame from 15 minutes to 2 weeks also. But I never accept altcoins for investments, they are suitable only for trading and in particularly intraday trading.

As I said, it is a subjective term and there are traders who hold positions for few minutes and there are traders like you who prefer hold positions for weeks. I have noticed that investors are more comfortable in holding bitcoins for the long term instead of altcoin and usually altcoin investments are based on the current performance of it. I think forex is the only sector where traders take positions for short time span but high risk as compared to that of others.

Well there are a lot of successful day traders out there who are earning in short term bursts also so i think as long as you know what you're doing, it can take just days or months for a successful trade. For me it's not how long it takes but how much profit i make

The duration of a trade will always depend on the temperament and emotional management of the trader. A trader's apathy towards a trade, whether a scalper, a day trader or weekly trader. Sometimes, even planned day trade takes a few minutes to fill up and profits made depending on the fluctuations in the market at that time. I like longer time frames like the 4hrs and daily frames because they give one a clearer picture of the market. But that doesn't mean scalping aren't good or profitable.

Holding is not considered as trading. Because by the word itself, trading is exchanging goods to another goods which is opposite to the definition of holding. You will start trading once you stop holding. Holding is just a strategy used trading. Wink

Then from your point of view what is the exact meaning of trading. You will start to trade and buy any coin suppose if that coin price drop will you sell your coins or you will hold it until it gives some percentage of profit. What you will call for this process Trading or any other word. Holding is not considered as trading means how can you say that holding will be the strategy of trading.

But there are two options when i say about holding, the first is hold to use as money in the future and invest in the future, the secons is only hold to get a good price to sell in a long time, in my case its the second option.

It will takes a long time maybe you need 10years or 20years to have a million. But of course you need a lot of patient here when you enter trading, because trading has its own risk. But it is really depend on how we work on it.

Until you stop or until you lose because trading is is a system where you can gain money or lose money but when you take trading as a long term investment you will just earn money as time pass because the price of the cryptocurrency is growing just like the time because when the supply is will be lessen the price will go up.

Maybe he means that doing a longterm trade is quitely profitable but i will simply disagree with his thoughs since their are several cases that traders losses their money for doing some long trades since some of those coins who exist in trading sites are shitcoins and we can only count to our finger on which are them have solid plans and better to do an short trades so that we can earn from them frequently.

Maybe he means that doing a longterm trade is quitely profitable but i will simply disagree with his thoughs since their are several cases that traders losses their money for doing some long trades since some of those coins who exist in trading sites are shitcoins and we can only count to our finger on which are them have solid plans and better to do an short trades so that we can earn from them frequently.

What do you mean here by long term trades? Long term as an experience or traders will do long holding of a certain coin to be trade?

If long term trades like literally doing trading for a long time, Im agree that there are traders who still have lots of losses even already build experience by doing trading for long term.

About long term holding, then why hold those coins that is prone to being a shitcoins? If a person will do a long term holding, make it to the point that their study bring them to the idea that the certain coin is worth to hold for long. Good candidate would be Bitcoin, Etherium and other promising coins that fit to the criteria. Those altcoins that is meant only for short trades can also hold for long but it's not worth it. We don't want a small profit out of holding it for so long in the first place. Smiley

The question is interesting and some answers are even more interesting than the question. If you wanted to ask the timeline a trade processed by an exchange, this is only seconds. If you meant the period we buy and hold the assets, this is totally up to the investor.

How long does a trade take?

It depends on what style of trading you prefer to do. Short term trading can take in just minutes. However, long term trading can take months or even years.
