How to Make Money on Cryptocurrencies?

Author: Andrey Goilov



Dear Clients and Partners,

The crypto market has changed a lot. A couple of years ago, we used to enjoy a stable bullish trend; you could buy an asset and forget about it but for taking the profit. However, currently, you have to watch the market all the time; the “buy and hold” option must be becoming the past.

While the Bitcoin is somehow winning back its positions, other assets, such as the Ethereum, Litecoin, XRP, Bitcoin Cash, has not yet managed to begin a stable uptrend. In such circumstances, we have to use tech analysis of charts, buy and close positions more and more frequently.

There are several quite different ways of making money on cryptocurrencies, however, many are still sure that the best way is to trade digital assets.

Trading at the crypto exchange



What is a crypto exchange?

Crypto exchange is a platform where you can exchange one cryptocurrency for another. Also, you can trade an asset for a certain currency based on the actual price of the cryptocurrency. All in all, those are like normal exchanges only that you trade cryptocurrencies instead of stocks or indices. Here, traders also try to make money on the fluctuations of the exchange rates of cryptocurrencies.

Which crypto exchanges are there?

Presently, there are several types of crypto exchanges. All of them have their characteristic features.
  • Traditional trading platforms. Here, exchange players make operations by the current market prices, while the exchange acts as a broker, charging market players a commission fee for each operation.

  • Direct access trading. On such exchanges, market players exchange assets directly. However, the prices are not market: buyers and sellers set their prices themselves. The exchange, in its turn, charges a commission fee for operations.

  • Crypto exchanges. Such exchanges allow trading a lot of instruments. All operations happen between the buyer, seller, and the exchange. The latter charges commission fees for all operations.

Centralized and decentralized exchanges

Many users are not quite fond of centralized exchanges. Vitalik Buterin has frequently voiced his support to decentralized exchanges while the centralized approach is generally against the crypto philosophy. On the other hand, centralized exchanges offer high liquidity, thanks to which the speed of operation will be much higher.

However, such platforms have their weak points, such as security. They suffer from hacker attacks rather often, imposing large losses on users. This made centralized exchanges really serious about the identification of users.

Decentralized exchanges do not require personal information or identification. Liquidity on such platforms is much lower; they also lack common facilities of classic trading, such as leverage, limit orders, or a comfortable trading platform.

NASDAQ-100: How to Invest or Trade the Index

Author: Maks Artemov



Dear Clients and Partners,

In this overview, we will get acquainted with a popular stock index NASDAQ-100. This is the index of high-tech companies that is one of the top-three US indices.

History of NASDAQ stock exchange

The NASDAQ (National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotation) stock exchange is one of the leading US exchanges; it was founded in 1971 and specializes in the stocks of high-tech companies. The name of the exchange is the abbreviation of the name of a quotation system that was used for identifying the quotations of stocks and other calculations were carried out.

The exchange was “born” as early as 1939, right after the enactment of a law that made all brokers who were out of functioning exchanges, unite in self-regulated institutions. This is how the NASD (National Association of Securities Dealers) was created. It united the participants of the US OTC stock market.

Nowadays, NASDAQ is one of the largest world exchanges. It specializes in operations with the stocks of high-tech and software development companies. NASDAQ lists the stocks of more than 4,000 companies; also, it calculates stock indices for different sectors of the economy.

Popular NASDAQ indices

Based on the stocks traded in NASDAQ, a whole range of stock indices in different sectors of the economy is calculated, such as NASDAQ Composite, NASDAQ Bank Index, NASDAQ Computer, NASDAQ -100, NASDAQ Biotechnology, and more. Let us discuss three popular indices:

NASDAQ Composite

This is the very first index that appeared in NASDAQ: it is based on the growth of all companies listed in the exchange. NASDAQ Composite is calculated by the method of weighted market capitalization. This means that the largest companies traded in the exchange influence the final result more than others.

This might be the main composite index of NASDAQ. The popularity of the index was somewhat deteriorated by the so-called “dotcom collapse” - the swift falling of the computer and IT market in 2000-2001. As a result, the index slumped and could not restore for a long time, so that NASDAQ-100 became the most attractive index.

NASDAQ-100

This index that appeared in 1985 is a modified weighted index tracking more than 100 largest non-financial companies of NASDAQ. It is often interpreted as a “tech” index because of the presence of such companies in it.

NASDAQ-100 includes such giants as Amazon, Apple, Tesla, Alphabet (Google), Facebook, Cisco, Intel, Microsoft, Adobe, Netflix. Almost all the companies in the index feature innovations, speedy growth, global attractiveness, and liquidity. All this made NASDAQ-100 a kind of a “barometer” of the high-tech sector and a popular financial instrument .

NASDAQ Biotechnology

This is a younger but still popular index that includes the stocks of biotech and pharmaceutical companies in NASDAQ. Currently, the index includes stocks of over 200 companies. Being a weighted index in terms of capitalization, NASDAQ Biotechnology has been estimating the situation in US medicine and healthcare since 1993.

Trading strategies in NASDAQ-100

As noted above, NASDAQ-100 is one of the largest world stock indices, popular among traders and investors. It can be traded by various financial instruments: futures, special funds, CFDs – depending on your broker. Have a look at the main strategies:

Long-term trading – investing

This must be the most popular strategy of trading NASDAQ-100. The main principle is as follows: wait for a correction and buy the index at the beginning of a new wave of growth as we expect it to renew the highs. This is quite a simple strategy but you have to be patient to let your profit grow to the desired level.

For example, you could by NASDAQ-100 in March this year, at the falling of stock indices provoked by the coronavirus epidemics. Winding up the decline, the index reversed upwards and in six months renewed its all-time high, almost doubling its quotation from the year’s lows.

Of course, we should remember that the growth was rather abnormal, explained by a huge money inflow from the Fed. In normal circumstances, you have to wait longer.



Medium- and short-term trading

As a rule, such trading requires leverage. Short-term trading presumes holding a position for one or several days; medium-term trading – from a day to several months. Swing-trading, day-trading, scalping – all these types of trading can be used for NASDAQ-100.

Apart from stock market news, your decisions should be based on tech analysis. Support/resistance levels and lines, price patterns, candlestick combinations, Price Action patterns, indicators – all these means help find good trading opportunities.

Trading with Ichimoku and Awesome Oscillator

Author: Andrey Goilov



Dear Clients and Partners,

Almost any trading strategy suggests using several indicators for finding market entry signals. In most cases, if a trend indicator is used, we supplement it with an oscillator to confirm the first signal and show the direction of the general trend.

Our strategy uses the Ichimoku and Awesome Oscillator indicators. Ichimoku Kinko Hyo is an excellent trend indicator that perfectly shows the current market trend. Awesome Oscillator demonstrates the deviation of the price from the average value. It is quite similar to the MACD indicator that demonstrates the divergence of the price chart and the indicator chart.

The strategy will give signals at trend reversals. According to authors and traders, such signals can be found on any currency pairs, which means the strategy suits both majors and less popular pairs. For market entry, we use H1, but longer timeframes are also worth trying.

Setting up the strategy Ichimoku + Awesome

As I said above, the strategy requires the use of two indicators only, which makes it suitable even for traders with minimum expertise. So, we need to add two indicators with standard parameters to the chart:

Ichimoku Kinko Hyo. As we have figured out, it shows the actual market trend. Normally, if the prices rest above the Ichimoku Cloud, the trend is bullish (ascending). Conversely, if the price has broken the Cloud away and turned out under it, the trend on the chart is descending. Also, the price may trade inside the Cloud, in which situation, traders speak of a flat and wait for the price to escape the Cloud to catch the beginning of a new wave.



Awesome Oscillator — is an indicator that gives good signals in a flat. A strong signal is a divergence of the p[rice and indicator charts in the direction of the main trend. The color of the histogram and its position in relation to zero will also be important.



How to open a buying trade?

To open a buying position, the following is important:

The closing price of the candlestick broke through the Senkou Span A line from below, which means the candlestick closed above the upper border of the Ichimoku Cloud.

How To Become a Successful Trader: 10 Clues

Author: Victor Gryazin



Dear Clients and Partners,

Who is a “successful trader”? They are a trader who has learned to make a stable profit in financial markets. In this article, we will give 10 clues that will help beginners to become and feel like that successful trader. Let us get started.

Decide if trading suits you



First and foremost, you need to make sure that the job of a trader is good for you.

Trading is high-risk speculations in financial markets. According to statistics, only 10% of those who have started trading make any serious success.

A trader spends a lot of time analyzing news and charts, looking for trading opportunities, following trades. Analytical mind and tranquility, as well as the ability to take possible losses calmly, are essential here.

For example, if you are choleric with a bursting temper and a love for traveling, you will have a lot of trouble sitting monotonously at the PC all day and analyzing charts. Hence, make your own list of criteria for your perfect job and check if trading meets your requirements.

Start from your trading education



As with any job, in trading, you have to start with thorough learning. Make sure your learning stuff is of high quality because the Internet is full of questionable content.

To learn independently, you may use educational videos or courses by experts from reliable brokers or investment companies, books by famous and successful traders, recommendations of professional traders you know personally.

To my mind, the fastest and most efficient way to learn to trade is to seek the assistance of an experienced working trader who makes real money. They can show you how to use the rules and techniques of a reliable trading strategy they use. You just need to make sure that your teacher does really trade well and not just sell courses. Check that your trader uploads trades online, or provides public monitoring of their trading account, or frequently shows good results in traders’ competitions.
