  • How do you track your Crypto portfolio/trades?!
    by /u/JoeFCaputo0113 on January 20, 2019 at 3:34 pm

    I use my own Google Spreadsheet to track my HODL (investment- long term) and then I use Delta/Blockfolio to track overall HODL+Trades. I am still deciding between the two of which to stick with (have only had Delta for about a week, wanna give each a month to decide which to use for good). Which service/app (paid or free) do you use? submitted by /u/JoeFCaputo0113 [link] [comments […]

  • Could the bottom be higher than expected?
    by /u/Cadenca on January 20, 2019 at 2:42 pm

    Much like you, I expected there to be much more blood on the streets, even compared to now. I'm talking like 2000 USD Bitcoin. However, I watched an interesting video that looked at it from an interesting angle. In this video, the person argued that the floor will be higher than people expect. Everyone seems to be saying what I just said, that "there are still too many scammers, fraudsters and moonboys on the scene. They all need to be flushed out!" As a result, people are not buying. However, the markets don't do what you expect. As such, the contrarian view is actually that the floor will be higher than people expect, and THAT will be the great surprise. While people are yelling "dead cat bounce!", smart people are accumulating and the general public ends up missing out on the gains of a lifetime. We are all expecting things to get only worse - could we be in for a surprise precisely because of that? submitted by /u/Cadenca [link] [comments […]

  • Is there a Wallet for all currencies?
    by /u/fasteX89 on January 20, 2019 at 9:09 am

    Hi, this is maybe a stupid question but I want to start trading with cryptocurrencies and I'm also interested in the little ones and new ones. From what I read there are tons of different wallets but I couldn't find one where I could save all currencies. So do I need to use multiple wallets? This would be very overwhelming I think. submitted by /u/fasteX89 [link] [comments […]

  • Understanding how buy and sell walls work, and why they indicate the opposite of what you think they do. This is market 101 stuff, but I think a lot of people don't understand this, so I'm going to help explain it.
    by /u/Suuperdad on January 19, 2019 at 3:46 pm

    I'm going to help explain this phenomena, because this is how big players enter or exit a market. This is how they create the liquidity they need, while eliminating the slippage which they don't want. I've had a few people lately that completely didn't understand this, and I figured there could be a lot of new investors (not just crypto, but market investors) that could benefit from a thorough explanation of this maneuver. This isnt about trying to make a profit. It's not a day trading tool. It's a market entrance tool (sell wall) or a market exit tool (buy wall). Lets talk sell walls first. You are trying to buy as much as you can without moving the price. Your goal is to lower the average value of a massive 10 million dollar buy. So you spend 1M over the counter and put it up as a sell wall, then buy the next 10M from people undercutting your sell wall, scared because they think it's insane selling pressure. Its not, it just looks like it. You open up liquidity by panicking people who are now selling into you. You may lose that 1M sell wall, but in the time you do, you picked up 10M off of the undercutters, and you did it without raising the price of the commodity you were buying, which you would have done if you just market bought 10M. Sure you would love to OTC buy 10M, but if only 1M is available, then this is how you leverage that first 1M into 9M more. Again, this is a very well known tool the big players use, and it has nothing to do with crypto. This happens every day in the stock market. It doesnt work in a bull market because people will buy through that 1M wall. But at the same time, you did still manage to lower your entry by scooping up so much as you could, even if that was only 1.5M it still worked. In a bear market, or sideways market (and your wall in and of itself creates stability until it's broken through), you can pick up way more than your wall, just by slurping up undercutters. It's a tactic that is as old as markets have existed. It's not some fantasy I thought up, it happens every single day, especially in smaller markets like crypto. Crypto is growing and volume is impressive, but it's still peanuts compared to trying to do that with amazon stock, or gold, etc. So it works best in sideways or slightly bearish markets. It is a massive sell wall that looks terrifying, but in reality it is actually a very bullish indicator. And this isnt just me and my opinion, go look up "are sell walls bearish or bullish". The opposite is true too... Buy walls A massive buy wall looks like someone really wants in (and it might be as simple as that), and it looks like the price wont fall lower because it has to penetrate that wall. In reality, if the buy wall is some whale who is using 1M capital to keep the price high while he sells his 10M stack to people leaping him to buy, then it's actually a large buy wall but what is really happening is 10M worth of sell pressure. He is trying to exit 10M position without crashing the price as he does. Then once his 10M is gone, he just pulls whatever is remaining of the buy wall down, market sells that and he exited without moving the price much. I know that was a wall of text but hopefully that explains buy and sell walls and why they are often seen as opposite signs of what you initially would think of them as. This is relevant to the stock market, not just crypto. submitted by /u/Suuperdad [link] [comments […]

  • Problem with ICOs: If you can make more money by pretending to work, than by actually working, nobody will work.
    by /u/ICODOG on January 19, 2019 at 11:09 am

    We created a negative feedback loop that crushed any development and made crypto exchanges and ICO advisory/marketing companies filthy rich. The problem was these people were running the show and had a vast interest in keeping everything running as long as possible. ​ We started a new crypto story on the history, downfall and future of ICOs. Hope you guys enjoy it. ​ https://icodog.io/crypto-stories/the-history-downfall-and-future-of-icos-episode-1/ submitted by /u/ICODOG [link] [comments […]
