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

I myself prefer short-term trading because it is very fast to develop bitcoin and also hold for the future.

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.
