CRYPTO TRADING STRATEGY GUIDES - Whether You're Day Trading, Swing Trading, Or Just Investing...Our Extensive Guides Will Get You To Where You Want To Be.

Fortunately for you, I’ve developed this well-rounded, easy to read guide in order to ensure that your cryptocurrency investing experience is a profitable one. Done properly, you’ll have enough of those shiny crypto coins to buy you that lambo that everyone keeps annoyingly shouting about.

Diversify, Diversify, Diversify

diversify-portfolio-cryptocurrencyOne great way to minimize your risk investing in cryptocurrency is to ensure that you diversify the coins within your portfolio. 

First thing you want to do is take a look at the market cap of a few cryptocurrencies that you’re interested in. If you’re not familiar with what a market cap is, the most basic explanation is a coins price multiplied by its circulating supply. Pretty simple right?

Remember the higher the market cap of a coin the less volatile it is. On the contrary, lower market cap coins are more volatile and have higher percentage swings. A more “diversified” portfolio contains a mix of these high to low market cap coins.

Let’s group these into three categories…

  • Large market cap – $5 billion and above
  • Medium market cap – $250 million-$5 billion
  • Low market cap – less than $250 million

Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash would be considered large market cap coins. They may not experience a 40 to 50% fluctuation like some of the smaller altcoins, however their price generally more stable during bear markets.

Your risk tolerance will play a major factor on which coins you decide to diversify with. If you already believe that investing in cryptocurrency is an extremely risky endeavor, you may want to consider investing 90% of your portfolio in large market cap coins.

risky-investment-cryptocurrency-tradingOn the other side of the fence, if you have a lot of disposable income and wouldn’t be too upset losing some of it, you may want to invest in more risky low cap cryptocurrencies.

These coins have an extremely high profitability rate of 100 – 500% ROI, however it is worth noting that many are worth nothing down the road. The ones that do end up being extremely profitable however, tend to outweigh the ones that don’t.

As you can probably guess by now, a moderately safe investment strategy would be to invest in all 3 market cap coins, splitting each one up evenly (34% large cap, 33% medium cap, 33% low cap).

The Hunt for Hidden Gems

Sometimes it pays to go against the grain and hunt for those hidden gems. Let me explain. Some of the best coins to invest in are the ones most people aren’t focused on.

Finding these hidden gems however can be quite the time-consuming process. You can spend days of research as well as looking through white papers in order to find 1 or 2 hidden gems. Even reviewing over 50+ coins may result in a single cryptocurrency worth investing in.

With that said, those 1 or 2 coins could turn your stagnant portfolio into an ultra-successful one. Let’s take a look at a few key examples:

  • Early investors in Antshares (now NEO) have experienced a 160,000% ROI to date.
  • An early investment in Ethos would have given you a profit of 4,300%.
  • Another early investment of OmiseGo (OMG) what have grown your portfolio by 4,000%.

Taking these examples into consideration, you can clearly see that finding these home run coins early can earn you massive returns. If you have the time to research, investing in these hidden gems could really pay off.

Diversification Across Industries

Another important aspect to building your portfolio is the industry in which your coin resides. Check out a few examples below as you can group most of these currencies into a few categories:

  • Currencies – Bitcoin, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash
  • Dapp Platforms – Ethereum, Cardano, Lisk, EOS, NEO
  • Financial – Ripple, OmiseGo, Wanchain, Stellar
  • Privacy – Monero, Zcash, Dash
  • Media – Steem and BAT

Blockchain is still in its infancy so it’s a bit difficult to predict which industries will be accepting the new technology. The lists above are just a few of the categories in which you can spread your investment over. Remember that a few of them even overlap industries.

The main point of this strategy is to not overly invest in one particular industry. Therefore if some reason one particular category ends up being left behind in this blockchain revolution, you don’t want to be left holding all the bags.

Invest More in Your Favorite Industries

This might seem more common sense to some of you, but investing in industries that you’re interested and heavily confident in is a great strategy to stick with.

Some novice crypto investors believe that only one coin per category will win out. That couldn’t be any further from the truth. In order to prove my point, take a look at some “real-world” industries. For example:

  • Travel – Delta, American, Southwest, JetBlue
  • Cellphone carriers – AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon
  • Financial – Chase, Wells Fargo, U.S. Bank, Bank of America

and the list goes on. Every industry is large enough to support multiple cryptocurrencies. Many may die off however quite a few will survive.

Also remember that a cryptocurrency doesn’t necessarily need to be in the top three or four of its industry in order to return a massive profit. The great thing about this industry is, if your currency is ranked number 10 within its industry, you can still see 100-300% profits.

Crypto Trading Requires Experience (and a bit of luck)

experienced-crypto-traderAlong your journey to cryptocurrency riches, you’ll find a number of other tactics and strategies that fit well within your trading portfolio. You’ll also more than likely take action on advice that absolutely sucks as well.

Becoming a cryptocurrency trading pro is a learning process that can only be mastered with real world experience. Each investor has his own personal style which will be cultivated over time with more experience. Just remember to be open, optimistically skeptical, and enjoy yourself along the way.
