Any online wallet like coinbase is not a safe wallet for your information because it is prone for cyber attacks and it is better and safer to have a paper wallet rather than relying on that online wallet that will lead for possible regret in the future because most of the hackers targeted those online wallet which they can hack and get some money while paper wallet on the other hand is safer because it is an offline wallet and you are holding it physically.

OP here

Thanks. I will keep this in mind when I do my next buy.
One more from me, to invest in bitcoins for long term, you can make investment in bitcoins weekly, monthly from your income. This strategy will help you to increase your bitcoins, i adopt concept of saving in strategy investing in bitcoins, we can do it continuous every day, weeks or monthly although just a little amount of bitcoins, It will work if you are dicipline the bitcoins will be more rise in the future. Good luck
yes long term investment is always better as compare to short term investment, because in short term investment there are always chances of losing money.

But if you have invested in good altcoins then you can make good profits in short term as you cannot hold them too longer as it can be risk to loose money in long term so if you are dealing with altcoins and if you have sound knowledge then you can make profits even in short term.

Since you are focused with BTC/USD tradind you will be solely using a web wallet. Coinbase will be the best choice for you, though this type of trading is risky and letting your coins sleep at them, put some of youe bitcoins on an electrum wallet for long term holding, it is secured.

I am a novice in BTC but have been lucky so far. I bought BTC at under $2000 and have now sold it at $4100. I am sure that I have made some mistakes in the way that I have bought, stored and sold the BTC.

I now want to trade both long term and short term in BTC. I want to trade in minimum USD $10,000 blocks

Long Term What is the "best practice" processes to buy and sell BTC?

Where is the best place to buy BTC using USDs

Where is  the best place to store BTC using USDs. As a result of my limited research, security seems to be a major issue. I am prepared to buy a dedicated computer solely to store the BTCs if necessary

What is the best place to Sell BTC using USDs

You may thought have lost the chance to trade bitcoin at the peak and buy back at the dips. If you think could make profits by trading bitcoin, go ahead. The best place to buy and sell bitcoin using USD depend on your interest, check GDAX and Bitstamp. These exchanges may have some differences regarding their deposit, fees, and withdrawal process.
To store bitcoin for long term I recommend ledger-nano or trezor wallet, I think it's better than using a dedicated computer to store bitcoin. You can read this : https://www.weusecoins.com/en/find-the-best-bitcoin-wallet/

Coinbase has major security issues. Trading is difficult enough. Hackers stealing your Bitcoins on a daily basis is too much for me.

I have just finished reading the article in Fortune.com (Hacking Coinbase: The Great Bitcoin Bank Robbery)
http://fortune.com/2017/08/22/bitcoin-coinbase-hack/
Coinbase was successfully hacked 30 times in a month. That is an average of once a day.  BTC-e is even worse.
And because Bitcoin is hard to trace, it means that the lost money won't be able to be recovered.

you can buy BTC in a market that has a high volume of exchange such as bittrex, for storage you can store in bittrex by installing 2FA security.

Saving bitcoins on trading sites is never safe as you never know what will happen to those sites in future as bitfinex scammed many people in the past and ran away with tons of bitcoins of people so its good to buy them and save in offline wallet to keep them safe.

It also seriously exposes the unbelievable weaknesses in 2FA security.

Oh that happened recently at coinbase? I'm sorry I wasn't updated with coinbase since I'm into major bitcoin-alt coins trading. I thought that coinbase is one of the most secured exchange after all and the rumors are right that they can penetrated easily. Well I did warned that it's risky to let your coins sleep there but if you will just going to pass your coins through I guess there's no problem.

you can buy bitcoin in exchange like kraken, bitstamp, localbitcoin, and other else but if you want to hold for a long term, i suggested you to move your bitcoin from the exchange into your wallet or paper wallet or usb wallet. i think its not safe if you hold in the exchange as we know that the exchange is not always safe so better you save it in your private wallet.

The only way one can have safe investment in bitcoin or crypto currency in general for me is holding your bitcoin for a long period of time pending when the market value of Bitcoin increase before selling. Although this is my own personal opinion .

To inverse in bitcoin safely means you must have knowledge in bitcoin. You should periodically check the value of In every specific period of time.You must save your bitcoin for longer termto get more profit. You keep in a wallet and make some security password for that account to make it safely.

Ya making bitcoin from any altcoin is the best option to make more bitcoin. If you more profit from bitcoin means you can hold it for longer to long period .Selling at high price for bitcoin good option. Instead of brought new bitcoin you may hold the bitcoin from Campaign and save that for long.

I think the best way to earn a handsome profit in rising as well as in falling market is to buy and sell systematically through distributed investment plan in stead of buying and selling in one single shot.

Never buy or sell as a whole. If you are buying in market falling conditions and selling when it is going upwards then your 100% capital should be divided like,

1. Buy Low - 20% - 20% - 40%
2. Wait - Hold 100%
3. Sell High - 40% - 20% - 20%

This strategy will take the advantage of the price averaging technique and render high profits.


Making a distributed purchase at short intervals of time helps us to grab the benefit of volatile market behaviour. Please do your own research before implementing any strategy, I have been using this strategy and it is working for me but that doesn't mean it will work for you too.

Though you are very lucky to make it in your last investment  according to your testimony and I am very happy for you for making so much at list double your investment. Since you said you are new I think you should study very well to know when to buy and time to sell.

OP here.

Thanks for your advice. I am an experienced trader and investor. I am waiting for the Bitcoin price to drop before I get back in.
Maybe around the $2500 area. Any market that goes parabolic eventually collapses back to much lower levels.

Is there a way to short this market through a reliable broker?

[/quote]

Bitcoin is starting to get down to my target area.  Currently at $4180. Down from $4969.  Thats down 16% in less than 2 days.
Ethereum is now down from $391 to current $295. Thats down 25% in less than 2 days.

I love this market

Here is the reason for the fall in Bitcoin and Etherium.
http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-09-04/ethereum-bitcoin-crash-after-china-declares-initial-coin-offerings-illegal

"Ethereum and bitcoin are crashing this morning, after China confirmed its recent threat of an ICO crackdown (reported here last Monday) when the central bank said on Monday that initial coin offerings are illegal and disrupt financial markets, according to statement on China’s central bank website. The PBOC also asked all related fundraising activity to be halted immediately, issuing the strongest regulatory challenge so far to the controversial if surging market for digital token sales."

Buy now as much as you can, then save it in the hardware wallet. Write the the key, make sure that you are not loss the key. Don't be afraid if the price of bitcoin is fall because it will go up again.

yes, I agree with you that there is no safe deposit of money online. in addition to hackers the absence of any internet connection can be a cause you lose your money. but currently the risk is very small.
the safest way is not to put all your money in bitcoin.
