Having   ( ) cracking down the 7,3k again, we can expect a run up to 8k. On the other hand the volume is getting lower. Once BTC falls we expect to see it @ $6880 and Alts should shine again then. Bitcoin serves a tasty menu of cheap altcoins again and we are ready to order a nice menu. We will hold it strongly and probably just watch the show until the rush is over and we get back into the correction. We expect the coming December to be the month of the alts. Here are some of our high potential coins with a good set of news and bottom low prices right now. Waitress BTC, please take our order:

VERTCOIN

With a high of 89k sats, a great technical base and profitable mining options, VERTCOIN is definitely on the menu with these rock bottom prices. Especially due to its great tech many sources predict VERTCOIN a bright future. We see a huge potential to go up again very well, once BTC has settled. On the 11th of December VTC will halving its mining rewards, to limit its coin supply. Right now, writing this post it hovers at a well respected support line at 55k sats.

Exchange:  $VTC https://bittrex.com/Market/Index?MarketName=BTC-VTC
Current price: 
  ( )
Our entry: ~55k sats

Our target: 76k sats


WAVES

There is so much exciting news about waves upcoming, we can see this literally skyrocketing. WAVES provides a plattform to create tokens and launch ICOs and has a major design update on the 20th of November. It broke the prior resistance at 66k sats, which became the new support, where it is right now at this very moment. An oversold RSI and the upward channel which you can see on larger timeframes support the bright future of WAVES. With almost no resistance up to 100k sats there is much room to grow, and thanks to our waitress BTC, we get this great coin served at a discount price.

Exchange:  $WAVES https://bittrex.com/Market/Index?MarketName=BTC-WAVES | Quick buy at Challengly
Current price: 
  ( )
Our entry: ~66.8k sats
Our target: 98k sats


ADEX

As an future alternative ot Adwords & co ADEX is out to disrupt the online advertizing industry with a serious set of highly anticipated and needed features for this industry. ADEX is out for the first decentralized advertizing platform. This coin also broke the resistance recently, which is now the new support and even with the current bullrun of BTC it seems to respect it nicely. Maybe it is the major news, which can hit us anytime soon, which is that ADEX will release their prototype – big gains can be expected here. With this news 18k sats should be within reach, however we stay a bit more conservative to make sure we can book a part of our profit in time.

Exchange:  $ADX https://bittrex.com/Market/Index?MarketName=BTC-ADX | Quick buy at Challengly
Current price: 
  ( )
Our entry: ~13.8k sats
Our target: 15.5k sats


Happy & safe trading guys – don’t forget to setup a stop loss in unstable times like these.

Trading Course Review: The Crypto Mastermind https://smartoptions.io/trading-course-review-crypto-mastermind/ https://smartoptions.io/trading-course-review-crypto-mastermind/#respond Wed, 15 Nov 2017 09:50:37 +0000 https://smartoptions.io/?p=3775 If you take a look through Crypto Facebook groups, you often come across requests of “what to trade – questions” like “I have 20k to invest, which coins will moon, so I can take some fast profits?”.

If you take a look through Crypto Facebook groups, you often come across requests of “what to trade – questions” like “I have 20k to invest, which coins will moon, so I can take some fast profits?”. Usually the lambo-moon-hodl party starts right away and everyone and his wheel-chaired stepmom joins in, to throw in the name of the coin, which they likely hold themselves. Wishful thinking at its best. Especially if someone wants a “fast return”, they are far away from the idea of “investing” into something, actually they request day trading advice unknowingly. And day trading is a tough game.

Once people become aware, that they actually are in search for the kick of day trading, they start to request a TA (short for technical analysis) – and soon pics with some random lines on a chart will appear. Sadly this seems to be enough for some guys to put their hard-earned bucks into it. Whilst there are very few honest signal providers out there, you could rely on, you will always depend on their mercy – as well as your trading account. Relying on signals is pretty risky – you give your money basically into the hands of a stranger. For those who are eager to really learn and want to step into that game on an independent base, learning the basics of technical analysis is mandatory. Having an endless sea of information, it is advisable to find a mentor – even better a mastermind group to join.

“A Mastermind is the principle through which you can accomplish in one year more than you could accomplish without it in a lifetime if you depended entirely on your own efforts for success” – Napoleon Hill

And between all those crowded facebook groups (which will honestly confuse you more than help you, – hey, everybody is an expert today!), I found a gem called The Crypto Mastermind, which I am silently reading for some time now. It is based on the mastermind concept – each one teach one -, and under the patronage of one serious and well-experienced trader: Travis Dobing, whose trading ideas I follow for some time on Twitter as well. Accompanying to the Facebook group he started to create a trading course, started back in July – and frankly, this is a great starting base to get your feet wet with all the basic knowledge one needs to know. Sure, there are tons of free informations out there already and this is exactly what makes it hard to find your way into this universe. You need a solid starting point, a base knowledge to process and rate the informations you find. You are likely to get lost and try to learn something useless.

About this Review

This is a review of Trader Travis' (Travis Dobing) Video Course The Crypto Mastermind. This is not a sponsored post and we have not been compensated in any form to write it. We added an partner link if you want to support our project.

So, basically there are two routes you can follow:

1. Research projects intensely, invest in the promising ones, hold them and then take the profits after some given time. In this case some basic technical analysis (like support and resistance can be helpful to not buy in at the top and to define a good entry point).

2. Learn chart reading, prepare your mind, practice technical analysis and let your account (hopefully) grow by day trading the charts. We have a feeling that this is what the majority actually wants to do, but doesnt knows where to start. There are tons of informations out there – and roughly 95% will just confuse you with wrong information or information which you are not yet ready to understand properly.

Regardless of which route you follow, a course like The Crypto Mastermind will be helpful in either case and you should consider it to gain the basics before starting to invest.

The Crypto Mastermind Course Review:

Since 11th July Travis has published 15 HQ videos and covers many important topic. I liked especially that he didn’t start out directly with analyzing the charts, but gives preference to some very important topics, that – if disregarded -will screw every trader sooner or later.  The first section of the syllabus prepares you for the trading world and really not a single person that is willing to learn trading should skip this step.  The videos covered in the preparation section are:

  • Psychology & Mindset *FREE*
    This is one of my favorites of this course as it is actually the most important base you will have to setup. Without the right mindset and pyschological base, you won’t be able to become successful in trading – simple as that. After creating a free account, you can watch this important video for free here. Always keep in mind: motions are a witch in trading, and they can cost you a lot.
  • Capital Preservation
    A nice video on how to not seeing your account size flooring everyday more and more. A great way to reduce your risk and to cut your losses. HODL is not always right.
  • Risk Reward Ratio
    This video shows a proven way to calculate the risk reward ration of your trades. Travis has a nice idea of estimating the risk of a trade. A nice addon is that he provides the shown excel file to his course members, which makes the calculations super easy.
  • Risk per Trade
    Here we learn how to calculate the risk on each trade. At the end of the day, each trade comes with a risk – that is normal, there will be always a level of uncertainty in trading, so we have to deal with that – here is the logical approach on how to do that. Good content!
  • Position Sizing
    “All in a good idea?” – Better not as we know, but how do I calculate how much I should invest in a trade setup. Travis explains here how to calculate the size of your trade position.
  • Stop loss
    Recently added to the syllabus this topic is important if you leave your trades running and want to avoid a nose dive.

These videos I would group up as the important basics, everyone should have internalized the content before even looking at the charts. I am glad Travis decided to emphasize the preparation and addresses it with five lessons before stepping into the trading itself. Let’s dive into the technical analysis.

Travis comes up with deep knowledge in technical analysis and shows some good didactic and methodical skills in outlining the course contents and the transmission of knowledge. The technical part has the following contents:

  • Support & Resistance *FREE*
    Not only in cryptoworld very important basics, that will help you giving you a hint when to get in and when to get out. Most traders uses support and resistance in estimating the targets of a trade and you can learn definitely a good chunk of support & resistance knowledge in this chapter.
  • Trendlines
    Trendlines are pretty important and can indicate good entry points. Travis covers this topic extensively and you are good to go with the knowledge you can gain here. This chapter will enable you to draw trendlines very exact.
  • Candlestick Patterns
    This part has know video on it, but comes with a cheatsheet. Knowing that Travis has a thing for price action patterns, we expected a bit more background here.  A video could cover how the market reacts to certain patterns as live example.
  • Indicators and Divergence
    A nice runup on indicators and what to do with them, plus what the heck is divergence? This course will make it crystal clear to you and will help you, not to get lost in indicator land. Always remember indicators just indicate – traders actually trade.
  • Price Action 
    Price Action is one of the most important things when it comes to day trading. This course gives you a brief overview, but can’t make you a PA master – to achieve this, you will have to watch charts for hours, days, month and get a feeling for it. However, this chapter will fuel your progress as you will learn to interpret the things you see.
  • Patterns
    Patterns appear on charts and patterns have a meaning. Whilst pattern are no exact science but should give you a good chunk of information what will happen in the markets.
  • Trends, Runs and Pullbacks
    Especially in crypto a very important topic. News can drive a price really WILD in cryptoworld. Whilst it is good of keeping up to date with the help of twitter and telegram, the price action is important understand when to enter and when to get out before a pullback happens.
  • Fibonacci Retracements
    Fibs are very common in day trading and many traders rely on them. Fib levels might appear almost magical to some and it is not really clear why the price often tends to respect those levels often very exact. Travis will demistify it in the vid and will enable you to draw them on your charts and make use of fibonacci levels.
  • Confluence Stacking
    Confluence connects the dots and requires some knowledge to be able to define it. This is advanced level and more of an entry point to build your own trading strategy. Travis gives some good advice on how to jump in. Trading is never a blueprint copy thing, where you just see something and adopt it to your charts – everyone sees and interprets charts in a different way. So in the end game it will be important for you to develop your own trading style and this is first step into this direction.

Bonus Lesson: How to make use of a Tradingview loophole, so you can save the fees for their platform and still use a good range of the features Tradingview offers.

What do we think about the the Crypto Mastermind Trading Course?

A great point with The Crypto Mastermind is, that paying members are able to request new videos on certain topics – that give the course a nice and individual touch. As said before, Travis is not in throwing a random course on the market to make some quick bucks. From the videos we watched Travis is very granular with educating people – he cares to bring up value to his paying members. This course covers the basic pretty much and is constantly growing in terms of content. The users can request videos on certain topics, here you can see what’s coming up next. We are happy to see the course is becoming more and more crypto-relevant. Frankly, at first we have been under the impression that the usage of the word “Crypto” in the title of the site has been chosen only to market a “usual” trading course, like selling a general technical analysis course with the help of the crypto buzz. However, you have to keep in mind, that the site is still young, and of course you want to cover the basics first and build up from there with more specific content (Update: We asked Travis and he confirmed that he will come up more and more with crypto-related topics, so he is building the basics first as we assumed). Seeing what comes up next strengthens our hope that it will become more and more specialized for crypto. In our opinion technical analysis works great on FX – and it works for Cryptos, too. Though this market is still very young, more and more newbies are jumping in and do their trade decisions based on news, so right now it is often very often emotion-driven. The absence of real fundamentals and institutional traders makes technical analysis even more difficult. If something like the China ban happens, you can screw your TA. On the other hand, the markets respect technical analysis on a high level under certain circumstances, like if BTC moves sideways. The quality of the videos was overall pretty good, the elder videos’ sound quality is a bit dull, though it becomes crystal clear in later videos – so this issue has been addressed. The website itself has a nice design, but usability issues – the menu structure is confusing and needs a better structure.

So should you jump in? If you are new to trading The Crypto Mastermind course is definitely a good investment. You get videos that explain all the basics in a good didactical way and you can learn very much – I’d choose The Crypto Mastermind instead over any Udemy course. Right now it is more a Technical Analysis 101 – but you will need this basics for sure. Considering that you pay a one-time fee of $147 you will get all upcoming videos, which I assume to get deeper and deeper into crypto-specific topics. Where I can see a great potential, is the mastermind group on facebook. This adds up interactivity to the course and will help to get feedback on your first steps. It is important that this group is governed by Travis to avoid the common “noob gives advice to other noob” bias. The conjunction of the video course and the group makes the concept hollistic and a great chance to learn actively how to trade the markets. The activity of the group is currently increasing, which is a good sign – the quality of the content there is overall good.

If you want to learn the basics of technical analysis, don’t save on the wrong end and treat yourself with valid information and a well thought through path to follow.

Recently we reviewed Telegram Crypto Signal Groups and things got heated. Many people hear Telegram + Signals and equal that automatically to SCAM. But we didn’t want to label the complete scene like this and preferred to make our own judgement. As you can see from the link, we found some good providers, but hey – it was tough! The stigma is there for a reason, no doubt, but we want to point onto the good ones and help to pull some of the few good guys out of the mud – as they don’t deserve to be perceived like that. One of them is CRYPTOLAND and we took the chance and interviewed them with five questions. Enjoy!

Interview: Cryptoland Elite Signals

Free Crypto Signal Channel: https://t.me/cryptolandtrade
Paid Membership: To enroll please contact @TCCINFO directly on Telegram

Smartoptions.io: What is you trading background / history? Did you started straight with Crypto and how did you built up your knowledge to create successful signals?

Cryptoland: First of all thanks for the opportunity to speak about my experience and my channel here in smartoptions.io

My career in trading started with forex and commodities more than ten years ago. My professional life changed one evening talking with an analyst friend. I remember he just started to talk about something called “bitcoin”, and how the people who bought early was making huge money profits. I just started to laugh and of course i said that it was just a “bubble”.

Now i trade 100% cryptos since three years ago. That’s because the profit right now trading altcoins and btc/usd it’s 100 times higher than any traditional investment (and i know what i am talking about). If most of traditional traders doesn’t work with cryptos it’s just because they don’t know it. Well, yet.

Smartoptions.io: Do you follow a Risk and / or Money Management strategy. Please elaborate.

Cryptoland:  Of course, actually, they key of success, not only in crypto market but at any kind of investment, it’s the risk management. If you don’t have that skill you don’t have nothing to do in this business.

What i say to all my members always it’s this: the best way to make profit, it’s just dont loose. The rest comes with patience and time. How i do this in my daily trading? I will tell you the same i recommend to my members: always trade with stop loss and never invest more than 10% of your portfolio in every trade.

Smartoptions.io: How do you deal with emotions while trading? How do you handle the pressure of providing signals – especially if one does turn out not successful?

Cryptoland: The point it’s be certainly about your analysis. If you know why you made that decision, you never will be wrong. Of course, after that the market could react against you or not, but that’s not your work already. Here we are for the long term, and in the long term just the good decisions (and not the market) will decide if you are a good trader or not.

Smartoptions.io: What kind of signals do you look out for in regards to a bubble burst? How do you try to get out in time if you believe that a burst will come?

Cryptoland: Actually, i don’t invest in bubbles, or hypes, or pumps… I really prefer the safest trading. I like to invest when i know i have the control. When the whales or FOMOS are playing hard, that’s the red light for me, that’s the time you know you must take your profit and let the market.

Smartoptions.io: Do you have some tips for our readers, how to know that a telegram signals channel is a scam or a pump and dump group? What should the customer look for?

Cryptoland:  Usually the pump and dump groups are honest about it and they say clearly that they are doing pumps. That’s because there a lot of people really interested in pumps. It’s really sad, but so many new investors think they could make profit in that kind of “game”.

The truth it’s that in pumps you will lose always, and only with good signals, based in TA and fundamentals you will make profit in the long term. That’s what i do in CRYPTOLAND everyday, and that’s what i will keep doing it.

Our recent article about Telegram Crypto Signal Groups got quite some attention. Some even called us out to promote a scam, which is certainly a baseless assumption. We know that Telegram has so much scammy and shady signal groups which you should avoid like the plague. But especially this kind of state has been the reason for us to take a deep dive into this shady world and find the very few gems. One of these gems are the guys behind Hawkeye Bittrex Signals, a group of two, that offers free signals for the Bittrex exchange – without offering anything paid beside! So you can be sure, they don’t want to sell you anything, because there is nothing to sell. The quality of their channel was far above of those we tested and they showed off some quite profound knowledge about trading. We took the chance and interviewed them with five questions. Enjoy!

Interview: Hawkeye Bittrex Signals

Free Crypto Signal Channel:  https://t.me/he_signals

Smart Options: Thank you for taking the time, would you please introduce yourself shortly to our readers?

Hawkeye Bittrex Signals Group: Thanks for this opportunity,  first of all we want to introduce ourselves. We are a professional team that spend most part of the day analyzing the market, we have a huge experience reading charts and giving signals, we also make a huge research looking for news.

Smart Options: What is you trading history? Did you started straight with Crypto and how did you built up your knowledge to create successful signals?

Michael: Although I’ve been in the crypto scene since early 2013, I didn’t actually start trading or mining until August of this year. I introduced my best friend to crypto back then, and although he was never too tech-savy, he achieved significant financial successes through mining and now owns various related and non-related businesses. This guy always believed in me, so he sent me 1 BTC right before the BCH fork to get me started. Given the following altcoin massacre and my complete lack of knowledge, I naturally lost over half by mid October. Yet, I received a lot of experience and understanding in return. After sharing some ideas in a talk group to receive some feedback from others, people noticed that I was very accurate in my predictions and began asking my advice. Within mere days, the owner of the Telegram group offered to pay me a small weekly payment to share signals in his channel, as he had become occupied with his studies and upcoming exams.

Javier:  Before joining this crypto world, I used to be a forex investor and a Binary options trader, but slowly I moved to this amazing world and I don’t regret. I love reading and learning, that’s how I built my knowledge. It also helps that I have been trading Binary options and Forex for 3 years.

Smart Options: Do you follow a Risk and / or Money Management strategy. Please elaborate.

Michael: To be completely honest, I’m hardly familiar with these terms. Of course there’s some risk, but I minimize it by doing extensive analysis of the charts and never taking my eyes off of large investment. Experience, intelligence and some understanding of mass manipulation and psychology are very helpful, and so is the pressure of knowing that other people trust my advice with their money. I truly believe that trading is largely about having strong nerves and being able to separate emotions and intuition – a skill that took me years to develop and that I see many people lack.

Javier:  Of course I do – building a strong strategy is the key of the success in this business.  Trading all in is a big error, because you can’t control feelings. In my case I only trade with a 30% of my total bank amount; the 70% of my holdings are in long term coins such as BTC ETH NEO… You can’t be greedy and search for a coin; opportunities comes alone the only thing you need you need is being ready to catch them. I use a strong Money management, never go all in and use Stop Loss.. this is quite an important fact.

Smart Options: How do you deal with emotions while trading? How do you handle the pressure of providing signals – especially if one does turn out not successful?

Michael: You really need to be able to shut off your emotions, from getting too proud when your signals are right (I haven’t had a miss in two weeks) to keeping your cool when all emotional alarms set off and tell you to sell or your hope or greed kicks in when you should be selling. I’ve pretty much gone through most of my life alone, and life puts us all through a lot of difficult situations. With hardly anyone around to support or help me through such situations, I understood that I had to either find a way to function regardless of my emotional state or sink, so I guess I’m well equipped for this game.

Javier: As we said before, if you have an strategy, you need to be strong and stick to it, if you cant do that, you cant trade because at the end you can lose everything… If you fail with one coin, no problem, other opportunities will come; that’s why money management and Stop loss are really important.

Smart Options: How do you try to protect yourself ? How do you try to get out in time if you believe that a trade turned into an unwanted direction?

Michael: I mostly base my targets off of historical resistance as well as trend resistance (especially when swing trading) – and this is quite accurate. Nonetheless, there are times when I am not sure if something will push further or not, momentum is not always a good indicator as there is a lot of manipulation from large money (so I suspect) trying to trick people who bought during strong momentum to panic and sell at a loss. What I’ve found works best for me in these situations is to set several targets based on how sure I am. If I am 70% sure that a bullish movement will bounce off of a resistance and dip, I sell 70% and that resistance. If I am 70% sure it will shoot through and continue to rise, I sell 30%. This is among the best tips I can give other traders. Always buy and sell in bits according to the probability you determine.

Smart Options: Do you have some tips for our readers, how to know that a telegram signals channel is a scam or a pump and dump group? What should the customer look for?

Michael: I can only answer this generally and do not want to offend any groups whom this does not apply to – there are always exceptions. I would say that any pump and dump group is a guaranteed way to lose your money, unless you’re a paying member. If you are a paying member, please know that you are the type of person who uses cheats in their video games, and although profit in trading generally comes from another person’s loss, therefore you are not technically stealing from anybody – after all, a person who decides to invest money shouldn’t be so naive as to fall for such scams – you are not profiting, you are not winning the game, you’re cheating! And you are doing so at the expense of your (lazy and naive) brothers and sisters in humanity by extorting their hopes. This is about as low as starting a cult to extort money from people by giving them some false hope and I urge you to rethink the cost of what you are doing, because everything comes back to you in life. As for paid signal groups, you have about a fifty-fifty chance of getting ripped off, because you already paid them. Sure, some people choose to do business this way, and for their work they deserve to receive payments. I spend hours and hours doing this. But I do it anyways, because I invest my money in it, and if I do it well, why not share with others and help them. Like I said, everything comes back in life. And I still look forward to that one day when somebody investing larger sums than me will decide to reward me for any profit I helped them make with a donation, but until then, the thanks and respect I receive and especially the satisfaction I get from knowing I am making a difference in a place where so many people are out to take advantage of my brothers and sisters in humanity is more than enough.

Javier:  Guys, as you know there are many telegram channels but you don’t need to follow all of them; search for one which is transparent, and also provides info such as charts, news..
Many people think pump and dump is a good way of making money, but HELL NO!! is a scam… Please don’t join pumps and dumps groups. An important fact about a channel is that the admin is close to people and have time to answer questions and provide personal support.

Smart Options: Thank you for your time, guys! This was quite an interesting interview.

Recently we discussed the best crypto signal groups on Telegram. We suggested to take a look at Cryptonizers, a great company that offers valuable trading signals along with personal support – a real gem within this shady world. We had an interesting talk with the head of Cryptonizers…

Smart Options: What is you trading history? Did you started straight with Crypto and how did you built up your knowledge to create successful signals?
Cryptonizers: So before I answer the questions i would like to share a few things about me.
So I am by professional a marketer and an anti- counterfeiting specialist. I consult a few ICO projects on the marketing front and besides that work as Independent consultant to provide anti-counterfeiting solutions to brands.
Now moving to crypto, I have been in crypto for quite sometime now, as we all know a day in crypto land is a month in real world. Initially I was into forex trading but slowly moved completely to crypto, and made some extremely influential contacts really soon as crypto world is really small. Slowly we all became good friends and started and just started calling ourselves cryptonizers, which later become the name of our channel and our company. My team prefers to work behind the scene as they don’t wish to be known, so basically they made me the face of cryptonizers. I am honestly nothing without my team of analysts and devs.
Smart Options: Do you follow a Risk and / or Money Management strategy. Please elaborate.
Cryptonizers: The risk management and money management strategy is the key of being successful. The only thing I discuss everyday with my group of members on our paid advisory is this.
Three thumb rules which always need to be followed:
  1.  Greed is your worst enemy
  2. HODL is not always the best strategy, try and always book profits( some people can have varying thoughts but too all people who say holding is better. Ask yourself why and why do you feel a xyz coin will be give you returns.) I personally have seen people just holding bc of the hype, almost 95% wont know anything about NEO but all they know is it will moon but why it will moon is the main question they don’t know)
  3. Knowledge is the key to success in cryptoland
On the money management side, I always push for never investing more than 3-5% on any trade and it is always better to keep equal money invested in calls this helps you to maintain an overall win ratio.
Smart Options: How do you deal with emotions while trading? How do you handle the pressure of providing signals – especially if one does turn out not successful?
Cryptonizers: There is always stress in Cryptoland, it seems beautiful to the people on the outside but it is extremely stressful. To deal with stress discipline is the key. I personally never over trade, fix a daily goal, weekly and a monthly goal ( they must be realistic).So I never give into emotions once I am done with my personal goals I don’t care what is the market doing, I just keep a overall check nothing in specific.

There is no specific pressure to provide signals, our team has 2 analysts which have different roles and look 24*7 on good opportunities. Besides that the co-founder Danilo (an Italian developer) has made some amazing bots that help us catch so many pumps in the prepump phase.
Just a small example, a few days ago our bots showed some unusual activity on FAIR coin which I shared with our team and 2 days later FAIR coin got pumped, similar with our other Insider Info we provide to our small group of paid members.
I won’t dent our calls do fail, we cant control the market so when some calls go wrong we go feel the pressure as our group is open and paid members interact with us and each other in secret chat group so they can straightway complaint and show their displeasure about calls.
We try and make for such bad calls by providing them with something good always.

Smart Options: Do you have some tips for our readers, how to know that a telegram signals channel is a scam or a pump and dump group? What should the customer look for?

Cryptonizers: So the biggest tip I would like share with readers and specially people new to crypto is do not do not fall into those so called groups giving 5000% returns and showing amazing results. The biggest sign that a channel or team is scam is if offer lifetime membership, I always tell anyone to ask themselves if you could give 5000% return regularly a month why would you charge just .1 or .2 for lifetime – That doesn’t make sense guys. Normally if you follow many big groups, I won’t name them, they give 10-20 signals a day and obviously out of that 5-7 will hit targets they just promote those calls and never ever talk about the calls that failed. Another Important factor is after enrollement support which has become our USP to be honest. See once you pay someone a lifetime fee they do not have any incentive to cater to you or cater to your questions. Besides that we take great pride that every single one of our paid members get 1-1 attention. I personally sometimes go overboard. For example,  one time I called a guy who was holding PPC to tell him personally to sell it if he hasn’t sold besides that we cater to every single question be it silly or something extremely technical.

To some up just look for these main factors in a group:

  1. The returns they claim
  2. What type of support are they offering
  3.  Never opt for lifetime service
  4. Stay away from groups that provide so called VIP signals, as all of them are pump groups.

Smart Options: Thank you for taking the time for this interview.

If you don’t know how to trade, but still do day trading, you will likely see yourself losing your hard earned bitcoins. Day trading crypto is not meant as a gamble, so you should not use it like one. In search for guidance many new traders end up in several crypto signals telegram channels – and it worsens their situation way too often. We selected a small group of crypto signal providers and put them to a test – in the most unstable times! Let’s see how they did.

A Warning First: Be Careful With Shady Crypto Signals Groups

Unreliable, shady persons push random crypto signals and promote the ones that ended in profit in endless circles of self-adulation – even if the overall performance sucks. Even more bad are pump and dump groups – some of them publically state that their are pump and dumpers, so at least you know that you are jumping into a significant risk for your capital, but others pretend to be serious groups to lure you into their scheme – of course they are the only ones that will profit at the end of the day. But how does one know a telegram crypto signals group is a scam? Check out the trades they suggest, if they recommend some shitcoin and you open it on Bittrex and see already a large green candle, it is usually already pumped and will die short after you bought in. Bad spelling and grammar, the permanent use of rockets, moons and $ signs are additional indicators. Be careful those groups often use little pseudo-news to make you think it is legit, but they just use such small news for their pumps.

Are Free Crypto Signal Groups Any Good?

There are tons of free telegram crypto signal groups and we did our research properly: we joined dozens of them to get what is happening in this scene and – oh lord – it was not a fun to do that. The terrible spelling (join my free segnals grup!), the endless cross promotions, the nonstop vibrating cellphone (until you muted the groups) and last not least the often random appearing signals, or stolen crypto signals that hit you way too late and would give you a bad entry – a nightmare. Crypto signals on telegram really are wild – be careful if you blindly follow the signals you find there. As painful as it was to get hammered with the cross promotion notifications by those free crypto signal channels, as delighted we have been to find two real gems in those groups, we will share them later in this post.

Reliable Crypto Signal Groups On Telegram

Happily we did a deep research and have found a handful of honest crypto signal providers that actually know what they are doing – and these we want to present you in this post. All of them provide free channels (as an appetizer) and paid channels. We peeped a few days into the paid channels and noted the profits for you, so you can make a good decision based on our data. The free crypto signal channels often give only a fraction of the crypto signals of the paid crypto signal channels, also the paid ones had also sometimes very nice trades based on insider informations and the best yield in terms of profits. The free side-channels of the paid ones share their signals often, when the price already increase a bit, so you can’t take full advantage of the signal or share only a small fraction of their crypto signals. Our carefully hand-selected list could make you some nice returns, if you follow the suggestions accordingly.

How To Use Crypto Signals The Right Way:

Crypto Signals rely whether on technical analysis or on upcoming news / insider informations or the combination of both. Once enrolled in a channel you will get them in a format like this:

Often you will find short term crypto signals, mid term and long term signals. Short term signals are supposed to hit the targets within a few hours or the same day, mid term take a few days to hit its targets and and long term signals are meant to hold for up to a few weeks. The numbers mean you should place a buy order at the price of 0.0035 sats or below. Once your order is activated you can use the target sell levels to take profit. Here the crypto signal author projects 4 possible sell targets. The higher the sell target, the more time it usually takes to get there. Not all crypto signals reach all targets, so if you place this order for example and use  the price of 0.0055 as sell order to take profit it could take a while and for that time your capital is locked on this trade. Read here on how to put in pending buy and sell orders on Bittrex. Many traders prefer to sell off in steps and use the following methodology:

  1. Never go “all in”, diversify instead. If you are subscribed to all the mentioned groups in this post, you should get a plenty of crypto signals that make sense. Use 1/10 of your available funds for each trades as a defined maximum. The admin of the Crypto Elite channel, I am going to present them in the list, constantly repeated:
    “Never invest all your btc in one or two coins. Diversify your balance with *1/10. Remember to set stop loss 5% below of your entry point at those unstable days. Always set stop loss at entry point after price increase. Always sell 30-50% of your investment and set stop loss at 5-10% below after reach first target.”
  2. Setup the buy order at the give entry price. In our example, we would place a buy order at the price of 0.0035 or below.
  3. Now you have to chose your route, as Bittrex allows only Take Profit or Stop Loss. Decide between setting up the sell order on the first level of 0.0039 sats or a stop loss of 5-10% below the entry price. If you feel funky you could use the second target as Take Profit target as well, knowing that this will lock our capital for a longer time, and there are chances that it won’t be reached for a longer time. There are no guarantees in Crypto – never. Always keep that in mind.
  4. Most traders would use the first sell target, and sell between 30 – 50% of the funds that have been used on the trade. So basically, if you get three targets, you would setup three sell orders. Target 1 with 30 – 50% of your trade size, target 2 with 30 – 40% and target 3 with 10 – 30%. Keep in mind, that the higher the target, the smaller the chance that it will be reached, so if you don’t like to end up with a fraction of your investment as bag holder, you should maybe prefer a conservative route. Some of the channels we present, offer sometimes crypto signals based on insider informations, here it is advised not to be too conservative, as these crypto signals can explode to unbelievable heights.
  5. As we can only set a take profit OR a stop loss order on Bittrex, it is a common practice to use the first sell target as take profit first, sell 30-50% of our funds on that trade and right after set a stop loss at our the entry price for the rest of our funds in that trade. From now on, we have to monitor the price of the coin and want to setup price alerts (for example with the Price Alert feature of Coinigy) and always sell a portion of the available funds on each target, that has been hit.

Our Hand-selected List Of Crypto Signal Groups On Telegram

Cryptonizers

Firstly, to make it clear to everyone Cryptonizers is not just a channel we are company. It is not just 1 individual behind it, we our a team of 7 people, soon to be 9. With analysts, developers and marketers. We specially designed a paid service for people, as we observed that people are spending a lot of money for all this and not getting results. We see a lot of channels given 5000% ROI a month, think logically and then see if that is possible. One more thing we observed is that people have a problem with waiting for trades to reach target, they start getting impatient and eventually sell in loss as the signal took weeks to meet target. Solving that problem we started a service called ” Live like a day trader” this service gives signals or trades which are short term maximum time to reach target is 24 hours. We do not say we have a 100% accuracy, however says that is either lying or is a scam. We have 8-9/10 ratio of success on our trades. Which in turns gives a daily profit of 30-50% ( accumulated) ( means total profit- total loss = accumulated profit) We believe it better to scoop out small profits then running behind those 100-200% coins. That just a mere luck if people get to ride that wave and happens only once or twice. So if you are interested in day trading, getting Inside Info and mid term signals as well.

Crypto Signals: The amount of crypto signals given was not too high, which is a good thing and shows he is not randomly throwing signals around, but instead carefully selects signals with the best potential. He provides the entry points and several sell targets, which nailed it pretty nicely from what I monitored. He offers day trade signals, midterm signals and longterm signals, the style is communicated on each of the signals. From time to time he offers some insider trades. I attented one of them and it was a hot tip that gave me juicy 15% percent in a few minutes.

The Results: We followed his signals for 3 days with a starting capital of 0.2 BTC and have been able to grow it to 0.25 BTC growth rate of almost 25%. We didn’t use their given targets, as we like to play more safe and take small profits instead of taking the risk becoming a bag holder. The amount of signals was not too high, though pretty well selected and very well chosen. We have been able to take profit on all of them. Download a sample report here, which shows a massive profit of over 500% if you would have taken all trades. We liked the high level of transparency with this service. We didn’t found the signals of Cryptonizers in any other channel. They are developing them themselve.

Support: Cryptonizers splits his member groups into Alpha and Beta, both groups have an own dedicated chat room, where customers can chit chat and clarify questions if they have doubts on how to do something. The chats are active and this is a great service as newbies are guided to use the crypto signals in best practice. Very straight forward and a good helping hand. In my test phase, I observed the chat closely and the team was always there to help – and the best thing is, he gave good advice to his members, cared for their progress like a good-willed teacher. Additionally they offer a News channel that keeps you up to date with the really important crypto news.

Behaviour in critical situations: We had the luck to test this service while the news came in that the BTC Fork SX2 has been suspended – this drove the markets crazy as you know. Cryptonizers kept their cool in the chatroom and advised in which alts to invest now with the current situation. From our view very good recommendations have been made and we would have taken those, we would have made good gains again.

Cryptoland (Elite)

The elite channel of Cryptoland combines many different sources of informations, it is like a hub and we can vouch for the claim, that this channel combines great info from many different sources. It is is well worth the money they ask for.

Why join us? You have 9 good reasons:
1) 24/7 Personal Support.
2) Daily 5 Trading Signals at least (we provide Quality rather than Quantity).
3) Coin recommendations based on both technical analysis and fundamental analysis.
4) Short, medium and long term buy signals hours before it is announced in our main channel.
5) EXCLUSIVE: 1800$ worth info from PAID groups (Cliff High’s Web Bot Predictions, Bitcoin Seoul, Dollar Vigilante, Mclero, Suppoman, Premium Channels…).
6) Info about ICOs.
7) Free learning material about Graphs and Charts. We will teach you how to analyze charts to know (optimal entry point) to maximize profit.
8) Portfolio advice.
9) Lifetime access.

Crypto Signals: Cryptoland Elite offers a bunch of signals, they are very active. If you want to follow them all you need to be quick and have patience. Most of the signals are midterm, and we had it often, that the price went down a good chunk of sats after the entry. Though, holding brave, will reward you well in this case. Often the targets have been met 1-2 days later but with a beautiful range. Cryptoland offers short term, mid term, long term and insider trades. We had no chance to check their technical analysis training, portfolio advice – so we can’t report back on this points. It is important to know that Cryptoland Elite acts as a hub of many signal sources, so the business model is a bit different.

The Results: We followed the signals for three days and had a great success with them. We have to admit that we traded the last set of 8 signals on the day the fork has been cancelled, so the results have been extraordinary and might be more much better than usual as we met most often all three of four targets. We spreaded 0.2 BTC over the trades and got a return of 0.31 BTC which equals a growth rate of almost 75%, which could be even more, as we set more conservative targets than recommended.

Support: I got a direct support person, which I was able to ask everything and got satisfying answers.

Behaviour in critical situations: We had the luck to test this service while the news came in that the BTC Fork SX2 has been suspended – this drove the markets crazy as you know. In this special situation Cryptoland kept its cool and handselected 8 coins to invest to profit the most from the situation with an appropriate stop loss suggestion. They have been right in all 8 cases, and if we would have taken them all, we would be far above 100% profit.

Paid Membership: To enroll please contact @TCCINFO directly on Telegram

The coinmarkets are a tough school – especially when you are new to the topic and just tapping in. There are 1001 ways to get burned quickly and suddenly you hold more bags than on a shopping tour with your girlfriend. Unfortunately bags of shitcoins instead of lingerie. Cryptocurrencies are soaring and therefore you will notice a growth  of worthless altcoins and scammy ICOs.

In this post we collected the most important learnings for cryptocurrencies and ICOs – use it as a rulebook and you will be more happy with your results!

  • It is normal to have a huge loss from time to time – on the other hand you will have sexy 500% gains on other coins over time if you invest time to do your research properly. It is always about to get more heavy gainers and to weed out out the losers fast.
  • Stop investing into hyped coins once they increased already very much. It is likely that you step into it at a peak and end as a bag holder. There are pump and dump groups that are responsible for this short term growth and simply hop to the next dead coin for a quick profit. Don’t just feel that something is good – use your analytical brain to decide where you invest.
  • Don’t get scared if Bitcoins soars – it affects the altcoin market negative, yes – but this won’t last long. What did you buy first when you entered the cryptogame? BTC maybe? And then you took a % and invested it into altcoins, right? You are not alone with that. So don’t shit your pants, just sit it out and don’t look to often at your portfolio. The money will flood into altcoins again over time.
  • Check the projects you invested in twice a week. Follow them on twitter and check if they are active.
  • Don’t develop an emotion to your coin, don’t think this or that is cool and they used a fancy graphic or have a cool new website. Only the numbers count and the ROI they generate for you, nothing else.
  • Check the github of the projects. If there are months without any progress, get out.
  • Once a new coin hits the exchange, the time has shown that is usually hits its all time high after one year – and many of them never reach this heights again! Keep that in mind and create selling strategy. Don’t get to greedy. Have a strategy, get in, get out, determine the next project with your research strategy. Get in, get out.
  • For the most of the coins that are worth it to invest into them, Bittrex is enough. There are exceptions though, if you look at WTC for example.
  • Get a hardware wallet, once your funds grow. We recommend a Ledger Nano.
  • Don’t use futures and margin trading as a newbie – crypto is volatile enough for high gains and the risk is much lower without any leverage.
  • Always have some free BTC in your exchange wallet for quick opportunities.
  • Never trade outside an exchange, if there is no escrow. Just don’t do it.
  • Use twitter, follow all the coin companies to stay ahead with their news and find exciting sell opportunities.
  • The young crypto market is driven mostly by news and by emotions. Check coinmarketcal.com to stay ahead of what is going on.
  • Share the knowledge you gain with the community. Be helpful. Get involved and get your rewards. Once you start building your contact base, you probably will get some insider infos.
  • Don’t ask on internet forums and facebook which coins you shall invest in. Most people are clueless like you, but will shill you the coins they hold themselves, due to their wishful thinking. Remember: No moon, no lambo, just hodl.
  • It is your money – don’t use shitty passwords. There are many bad guys much more smart with computers than you. So stay safe, safe your passwords non-digital only.
  • Mining is not really rewarding anymore in the most cases. Before you stack up tons of graphic cards, do your research like with any investment you would do.
  • For ICOs: If you as the group of investors can buy only less than 50% of the total amount of tokens – stay away.
  • If you missed to get into an ICO, don’t worry. Past has shown, that once these coins hit the exchanges, their value will drop often below the ICO price so you will be able to get it even cheaper. This happens especially on big ICOs with huge marketing campaigns. Whenever newbies have to wait months for the release of their tokens, they tend to act emotionally. Once released they urge to transform it back to BTC or ETH somehow and sell it without waiting for the gains.
  • If you invest in an ICO, make sure that you have the patience to wait for the results. Just don’t sell once they release the tokens and it hits the exchanges. Good projects need time!
  • Overly marketed ICOs will often fail – always check the MVP and if it looks trashy to you, don’t expect it to better later.
  • The biggest ROI is possible with the right ICO picks.
  • Don’t invest into overhyped ICOs and ICOs that pop up everywhere with ref-codes.
  • Watch out for underdogs instead of hype ICOs. See an example in our comparison between Halo and Cobinhood.
  • Check the team – each of them. Check the roadmap. Check if the token has a use on its own. Check the MVP.
