I've been trading cryptocurrencies for almost 4 years. I like to do both short and long term trading and I want to start a journey to reach $500K from $65K. I hope to achieve this in maximum 12 months. First I will tell you how I turned $7K into close to $25K in the last 3 weeks, and in the following posts I will share my trades as I make them. At the beginning of April I had 98% of my money in bitcoin, because I took a short break from altcoin trading previously. The price was in a slight uptrend and the charts looked promising. Knowing that if btc rises, most altcoins will eventually follow, I decided to take $7K and split it among several altcoins. How I picked the coins: - First I charted some of the promising coins both against btc and usd. If both charts had the same upward trend, I only had to find an optimal entry point. - Then I entered each position successively depending on the market. The entry was mostly triggered by indicators, but any person could have invested in these coins and turn a profit, regardless. The winning coins: - Ethereum Classic (ETC) bought at $2.68 and sold recently at $6.93 - Litecoin (LTC) bought at a little over $10 and sold recently at $29 I bought other coins too but I sold most of them at a loss, which is fine because overall the return was amazing. These were the most profitable 3 weeks of my trading career I suddenly had motivation to start a journey like this and have higher goals in general. I currently have 65K in btc (including the 25K) and I plan to invest 10K into altcoins in the next days/weeks and report the trades here. Hopefully we will make a lot of money together. In case some of you will invest based on my trades, please read the risks: RISKS! - This is speculation, so you have to be willing to lose. I had many negative months in the past. - Trading short term implies holding coins on exchanges and you risk getting goxed. You should split the coins among exchanges (I mostly use: Poloniex, Bittrex and Kraken but I'd love to get into GDAX in the future).
