Greetings to fellow traders and enthusiasts. I am an amateur crypto trader, learning and trading crypto for a year already  Grin
Here I am writing my daily trading routine. Hope it will help newbies, and get feedback from experienced traders.

Why I don’t like HODL
I just don’t trust almost all altcoins. There is always something shady happening, you never know, when the coin will fly down and wipe out all gains.
I do trust big coins like BTC, ETH. Thinking about Monero and Ripple.
So, I prefer to hold my investments in three equal parts: BTC, ETH, USD.

Firstly, I have a list of interesting coins, which will grow in my opinion. I revise this list once a month. Trying to have 7-10 coins on my list.

Daily routine, Step-by-step:
  • Revising my list of coins; reading Twitter, Reddit, Bitcointalk on each coin. News, announcements, public opinion, everything counts. Highlight the most interesting for today.
  • Sort the most active coins by recent growth. The most active – first.
  • Doing technical analyzes on the coins. Looking for trading signals: MA crossings, Stochastic rebounds, Support/Resistance levels and Trend Lines. The most valuable for me is position regarding Support/Resistance lines. For example – the coin has recently crossed important Resistance.
  • Then I open positions on the coins, where I see the signal. Target – 1-5% profit.
  • Waiting 😊
  • If position closes – making new analyzes and reopen position if conditions are right (Growth momentum still high and Resistance levels are far enough).
  • If at the end of the day some positions stay open – trying to close them with any profit. If the price went down, I leave the position hanging. Till now I manage to cover the losses from hanging positions from profits on other coins.
I avoid trading if Bitcoin is falling or has recently fallen, markets react really bad on such days. I avoid trading if all of the coins on my list are in red.

What do you think about my approach?
How do you trade?

What do you think about my approach?



As we have different approaches on our coins in our beloved portfolio, then we might have different results. As for you, then that's good.

If your current doings is giving you a positive result on the long run, then stick with it with just bit of modifications on the way if necessary. We have different strategies depending on the trend so what matters here is, we are gaining from our own analysis.

Well then just continue your doings as I think you understand the basic trading fundamentals.

Your trading routine looks cool. I'm not a full-time trader, but when I trade, I've mostly used TA myself because I don't really have time to search for news. I relied on free telegram channels that share the recent news about coins/crypto in general, but I don't do it too often. You should also avoid trading when Bitcoin is very bullish, as most of the times ALTS would go bearish.

Too bullish bitcoin is a bright idea, thanks. It is logical, that when bitcoin starts to grow, all traders try to transfer funds back intoto bitcoin, to gain on its growth.

What good Telegram channels do you know?

Keep watching the coinmarketcap does it includes a live update of coins it is good for day trading, while for the coins there are some that goes with bullish of BTC like ETH, just set amount you wanted to reach for that coin.

  • Doing technical analyzes on the coins. Looking for trading signals: MA crossings, Stochastic rebounds, Support/Resistance levels and Trend Lines. The most valuable for me is position regarding Support/Resistance lines. For example – the coin has recently crossed important Resistance.

This day trading stuff, people claim to make money with it. It has never worked for me, at least not so far. I find it to be very close to a gamble. Do you lose money from time to time? How do you cut loses?

I try to HODL the drawdown coins as long as possible and still trade, trying to take as much profit as I can from the bullish movements of the coins.  I had a lot of drawdown at the beginning of 2018, during the bearish phase of crypto markets. The most profit I got from that times was from Monero and Dash. As I close profit trades daily - I try to compensate hanging positions with profit from daily trades, so at the end of the month, my overall balance at least stays the same. Sometimes I had drawdown at the end of the month, to be honest. But thanks to trading on many coins it wasn't critical.
Today almost all coins that I was HODLing came back into profit zone, so I managed to close old trades.

I do not risk something, which I can't afford to lose. Crypto markets can wipe all your account away very fast.

I think if you are an inexperienced and toothless in trading then new trading often. You should have a detailed plan of profit and risk to be able to control the capital. You can see that if you keep greedy and forget that you have set the profit is how much, the risk when you continue to trade will increase and will lead you to failure.

I am with your words which every individual/trader/investor do really have their own analysis if it turns out that you are losing money or do commit mistakes then you should learn from it and try to get some little idea into successful ones and you might able to apply it into yourself.If it works then stick with it as long we are gaining or profiting then we are really doing a good job. Trading doesnt really have a fixed thing to be followed yet we are the ones who do mixed out and trying to figure it out which strategy would fit us.

What you are really doing is actually called trading plan. Your plan is actually good for beginners; but in time this plan would eventually subject for change for better effectiveness. I also agree with you that there are times that you do not do holding especially in not known altcoins. Top 3 cryptocurrency are the only worth holding for long term.

That's right! There are thousand ways to kill a cat. We have different strategies to earn money in trading. If the OP is gaining much in his way then it could be nice to follow but I think, what he did is really different from what are the result to others.
I am just a beginner in trading industry and I am here in order for me to have knowledge and deeper understanding on how I will trade and earn using cryptocurrency. Hopefully, I will become lucky as what OP is.

You say that there are important coins that should be detained are btc, eth, usdt. I think they are equally experienced in the value of a fast fluctuation. Your writing is meaningful to newbies, but not with people who decide to make management trading.
I think there are only two management trading, hold and daily trading.
I prefer to hold, because I can run other activities as I wish. Regular trading will not guarantee you are quicker.  Cool

I work similarly to you, going for safe consistent small gains.  I would advise you to trade on top 30 though, there are plenty of chances for massive gains. Look at ontology, or Verge. I was riding both those trains up and then jumped over to EOS and ICX which i'm on right now.

Anything in the top 30 is a fairly safe bet, and if you trade with "buy the rumor sell the news" you can end up pretty godamn green.
In the end of the day I don't really care one bit for 99% of the altcoins.  I just wana get more BTC.

Today almost all coins that I was HODLing came back into profit zone, so I managed to close old trades.

I do not risk something, which I can't afford to lose. Crypto markets can wipe all your account away very fast.
And when you decide not to HODL any more what do you do? Convert to BTC, or USD? What is your stable currency. What do you convert your profit into.

As soon as price back in profit zone - I close the hanging trade. The goal is to take profit from growing coins as fast as possible and re-enter the position if conditions are right.
I hold BTC, USD and ETH in equal parts. If I close the trades on BTC pairs I leave the profit in BTC. I can re-balance my deposits if one of the parts shrinks.

I had some good gains from Verge too until they announced the pornhub partnership, I don't touch Verge since then, waiting until markets will make mind about it again.

To trade 30 coins would be great, but I'm afraid that I will not have time to analyze all the coins daily.
It would be great to have something automatic or semi-automatic to make analyzes faster or even trade.

I think the most important thing is that you commit to exiting at 1-5% profit and don't get greedy for more. it's interesting to hear about your opinion on stop losses, because it doesn't seem that you incorporate them at all. but thinking about it if you invest only in well known coins that have community support and good development teams, then the risk that the coin might never come back is minimum.

That is a cool routine and its sound that you are a professional traders, that is the routine of all day traders, but I am curious about how you handle the dropping coin, you set a 1 - 5% profit, but you don't mention when to cutloss the coin, and as a traders I think alt coin also can give you  alot of profit, it maybe shady but there are so many pumps that happened in alt coin, it can be the opportunity to make some money

Greetings to fellow traders and enthusiasts. I am an amateur crypto trader, learning and trading crypto for a year already  Grin
Here I am writing my daily trading routine. Hope it will help newbies, and get feedback from experienced traders.

Why I don’t like HODL
I just don’t trust almost all altcoins. There is always something shady happening, you never know, when the coin will fly down and wipe out all gains.
I do trust big coins like BTC, ETH. Thinking about Monero and Ripple.
So, I prefer to hold my investments in three equal parts: BTC, ETH, USD.

Firstly, I have a list of interesting coins, which will grow in my opinion. I revise this list once a month. Trying to have 7-10 coins on my list.

Daily routine, Step-by-step:
  • Revising my list of coins; reading Twitter, Reddit, Bitcointalk on each coin. News, announcements, public opinion, everything counts. Highlight the most interesting for today.
  • Sort the most active coins by recent growth. The most active – first.
  • Doing technical analyzes on the coins. Looking for trading signals: MA crossings, Stochastic rebounds, Support/Resistance levels and Trend Lines. The most valuable for me is position regarding Support/Resistance lines. For example – the coin has recently crossed important Resistance.
  • Then I open positions on the coins, where I see the signal. Target – 1-5% profit.
  • Waiting 😊
  • If position closes – making new analyzes and reopen position if conditions are right (Growth momentum still high and Resistance levels are far enough).
  • If at the end of the day some positions stay open – trying to close them with any profit. If the price went down, I leave the position hanging. Till now I manage to cover the losses from hanging positions from profits on other coins.
I avoid trading if Bitcoin is falling or has recently fallen, markets react really bad on such days. I avoid trading if all of the coins on my list are in red.

What do you think about my approach?
How do you trade?


I think the most important thing is that you commit to exiting at 1-5% profit and don't get greedy for more. it's interesting to hear about your opinion on stop losses, because it doesn't seem that you incorporate them at all. but thinking about it if you invest only in well known coins that have community support and good development teams, then the risk that the coin might never come back is minimum.

Thanks, that is exactly my point Smiley

Very good information provided by you I also follow same thing like this I also do not trust all the Altcoins I always select and do proper research before buying any altcoin because the market is too much unpredictable and can give loss anytime.
