Technical Analysis of Cryptocurrencies (Learning How to Trade)




With cryptocurrencies and blockchain threatening to disrupt industries dominated by centralized platforms and layers of middlemen, investor interest in Bitcoin and Alt Coins surged in 2017, fueling a market bubble unlike any other. As of the time of this writing (Feb 10, 2018), the market bubble has popped. The question now is whether to continue shorting (or sell longs), or to begin buying in anticipation of a sustained rally off a major bottom. By understanding that price action, whether in cryptocurrencies or traditional asset classes like stock, bonds and commodities, reflects human psychology and all known information (whether publicly or privately available), traders can begin to anticipate price moves based on historical patterns. This book illustrates how technical analysis can be incorporated into cryptocurrency trading, improving a trader’s odds of profitably trading cryptocurrencies, long or short. By mastering the most popular approaches to technical analysis, traders can drastically improve their ability to see past media hype and rumours, and to trade more objectively during market bubbles and subsequent crashes. The author first came across technical analysis in the late 90s, not believing it until he began teaching it to clients in 2005, and quickly reaping benefits when applying it to his own trading. He now uses technical analysis to drive more than 50% of his trading decisions, with the balance of consideration coming from fundamental analysis and management of trading psychology. The technical analysis concepts learned in this book can be applied to all liquid financial markets across all trading timeframes. A high level understanding of cryptocurrencies and their technology, along with standard risk management practices is assumed.
