And in general I guess.

Here's a quote from another thread; https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=135035.0;all

"...you have to know how to trade dynamically to not be caught with pants down. You have to be commited 24h/day. You have to know market, wchich bids/asks are made by bot, when they appear and why, and most important how to get advantage of that. You have to know then take options, when wrote it and why. "

My question is, what are some good resources for a total newbie such as myself to start learning about these things?  Any help is greatly appreciated.

For the record I bought 15 btc and started trading on havelock and have managed to get up to 27 btc in just a few months but then I bought too much into ASICM when it was near its peak and now I'm watching my coins evaporate. o_0

first of all - ASICM is good choice.

second - prices are going up and down...

third - "few months" you say?
in few months from 15 BTC worth of ASICM shares should be more than 27 BTC worth without any trading (or so) due to price increase in this time frame.
are you sure having no losses instead of gain?! doing bookkeeping of your operations, right? Roll Eyes

you already SHOULD know that it's bad to invest more than... uh, i know you know that Wink

there are pretty simple and basic trading fundamentals and is good to read about i think... google maybe?

btw.
buying is ok, but do some mining too (if you can/didn't yet). just to know more about bitcoins... try at least.

i'm not a daytrader so I can't tell you anything about that,
i invested coins in direct Asicminer shares some months ago (bought on forumauction) and i have a little list of sites for watching value, news and market sentiment concerning that part.
but i'm more a longterm holder instead of a trader concerning shares
perhaps my list is still helpful (at least for you as a proud asicminer shareholder. don't loose the spirit  Cheesy):

asicminer speculation thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=235763.1640

personally i wouldn't recommend selling Asicminer shares atm to be honest,
but that's my longterm perspective speaking, just read a bit and you will get your own impression.
(only thing i have to say is that new blades and block erupters will be sold next week, so dividend on wednesday will probably be a bit higher)

I didn't buy into Asicm until it showed up on Havelock.  Some of my profit is from them but I got started on VTX and did pretty well there.  VTX really slowed down after a while though so that's why I started looking at other funds.  I did pretty well during the first few hours of sandstorm (lol)  Cheesy

My book keeping is rather lax tbh.  Its mostly in my head  Smiley  I only trade on Havelock so there is my transaction history there.

The bitcoin economy is the wild west. I'm prepared for anything.  Wink

I've been mining with a couple 5770s for a while now.  I'm up to 0.84 btc mined Smiley

I also have a preorder that I split on with a friend for an asic from butterfly. The smallest one.  Not the best I idea but hey, it wasn't much money. This was only about a month ago.

thx for responding

Hlynur, thank you, I will definitely be reading into all of these links.

I'm not even thinking about selling any asicm shares until they go back near their peak.  In fact I keep buying more bit by bit as the price goes down. Smiley   At the very least I know I'm gonna get a decent dividend every week. Cheesy
