Altcoin Scalp Trading: The Good, The Bad And The Ugly

Despite the never-ending chaos and shenanigans surrounding big-name exchanges such as Cryptsy, altcoin scalp trading (aka "altcoin scalping") is on the rise. Altcoin scalp trading is a blazing-fast style of cryptocurrency trading specializing in volatile markets: quick momentum trades for small, albeit consistent profits.

Bitcoin Price Watch; Mixing Things Up

We're mixing things up a bit for this afternoon's session in our intraday strategy. Here's how. Patience is a key component of any financial asset trading strategy, and the last 48 hours or so have demanded plenty of it. Aside from the early morning breakout that reversed and took out our short position for a loss (the one we discussed in this morning’s bitcoin price watch article), we’ve had tow days of pretty flat trading, and no real entry points to speak of.

Bitcoin Price Watch; Today’s Scalp Focus

Here's what we are looking at trading in the markets today, specifically, a bitcoin price scalp strategy. Over the last couple of days, action in the bitcoin price has been relatively flat. We have seen the odd bit of choppy momentum here and there, but nothing sustainable, and this has made it difficult for us to get in and out the markets and draw profits according to our standard intraday breakout strategy. With this in mind, and as we head into the fresh days trading in Europe on Wednesday, we’re going to shuffle things around a bit. Specifically, we’re going to tighten....
