Ep. 616: Bitcoin, Trend Following and Taking Losses with Michael Covel on Trend Following Radio
over 1 year ago by Trend Following Radio

Cryptocurrency is sweeping the world. From taxi drivers to Instagram bikini models – everyone is talking about getting rich off it. Millions of people are willing to jump on board immediately–whether it’s a good or bad idea. Building off that thought… Michael recently posted this question to listeners: “You have a trading strategy that you have tested over and over but you lose 5% the first year using it, what conclusions do you draw from that?” He reads feedback from listeners who are willing to throw their strategy away after having one down period.

Michael finishes the podcast reaching back into his archives and pulling some trading rules from past trading legends. He calls this list his “43 Kickass Trading Rules for Bitcoin and Crypto Trading.” In this episode of Trend Fo...

What you need to consider before trading cryptocurrencies
over 1 year ago by Michael Martin @ MartinKronicle

It's the system stupid. I have not traded bitcoin futures and I won't be in the near term. There is not enough data and I don't know who has basis risk. It seems like the market is dominated by speculators and not hedgers, and they are heavily biased long.When the market is lop-sided and fickle, it makes for a poor trading environment. That's why I'm invested and not trading at this point. It's too easy to lose money...and that's going to happen even when I'm trading well...
