    70% of cryptocurrency exchanges allow user accounts to have weak passwords. SIGEN does not.​

    The creators of the Dashlane password manager analyzed the password requirements imposed by cryptocurrency exchanges.

    They concluded that over 70% of all cryptocurrency exchanges allow users to use weak passwords. This can actually be seen as indifference to users' welfare, because their savings are at risk: accounts with weak passwords are vulnerable to hackers.

    What is required to make a strong password?

    - A password must be at least 8 characters long;
    - It must have both lowercase and uppercase letters;
    - It must include numbers.

    It turns out that only about 30% of cryptocurrency exchanges and trading platforms fully comply with these requirements. The remaining 70% do not. Moreover, 43% of the analyzed platforms allow passwords shorter than 8 characters, and 34% do not require both letters and numbers.

    Exchanges are unlikely to earn a good reputation with such an attitude toward user accounts. We recommend that you do not open accounts on such exchanges and certainly never keep funds there.

    The SIGEN cryptocurrency exchange cares about your security

    The SIGEN cryptocurrency exchange imposes stringent password requirements that comply with established standards. Additionally, mandatory two-factor identification has been introduced on the platform, as noted in a previous article. These security measures can reliably protect your savings from thieves. Using the SIGEN platform is simple and safe: we care about you!

    Trust your money to no one​

    Beginning traders often get hooked by "experienced investors" who offer their services regarding some "profitable" investment, promising only profits and no losses. But most of the time, such proposals are cover for amateurs seeking to make money at someone else's expense.

    Trusting such people puts you at risk of going bust, while your "benefactor" won't lose anything at all. After all, if the deal ends up being profitable, he gets a percentage for his services, well. If the investment tanks, only you lose since he isn't investing his own money, only yours.

    Do your own research

    Since the cryptocurrency market is virtually unpredictable, even a truly experienced trader with solid capital can't say with 100% certainty how a particular coin will behave in the near future. Honest people simply won't promise you anything. Mountains of gold "no matter what" are usually promised by scammers who have no qualms about profiting from your naivete and trust.

    To stay in the black, study the market yourself and learn to do analysis. Do not succumb to the desire to make money quickly with someone else's help. Be wise: don't trust your assets to outsiders; manage your own funds.

    May good profits come your way!

    Bulls Pushing Up: What is the Bull Trend in the Cryptocurrency Market​

    The cryptocurrency market is governed by two types of traders — the bulls and the bears. Today, we're going to review what the bulls do.

    Why the Bull?

    As traders themselves say, if the bull attacks it's always from the bottom upwards, by thrusting the opponent with its horns and tossing them up. In other words, a bull trend is an increase in the price of cryptocurrencies when the market is kind of pushing the price from the bottom point upwards.

    It's easy to see that a bull trend is developing — it's sufficient to have a look at the cryptocurrency price diagram. An upward trend is a sequence of price values, with each subsequent value higher than the previous one. If the price goes up and immediately back down again — this is no trend, it's a short-term price increase. When, however, the price moves from one maximum value to another, i. e. when the overall price grows fast with slight downward fluctuations, this is the upward — bull — trend.

    What shall I do?

    A trader must be able to see when the market enters the bull trend rather than simply being adjusted. Many traders think that the start of a sustainable bull trend is the best time to enter the market since the stock price is constantly rising.

    Most traders prefer the bull trend as its makes earning a profit easier and faster. When the stock price has been rising for a long period of time, the bulls are said to govern the market.

    One should remember, however, that a trend must persist for at least several days rather than hours. If a trader prematurely views a short-term market move as a long-term trend, they might sustain losses. It bears a special importance on the cryptocurrency market, with expensive cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Litecoin in particular, since the price behavior may change at rapid-fire pace, within a few hours, while losses may be huge. However, if a trader is right about picking up on a bull trend, their profits are going to be high.

    Bears pushing down: what is the bear trend in the cryptocurrency market?​

    Last time, we told you about the bulls in the cryptocurrency market. Today, we are going to talk what the bears do.

    The bears attack from above

    Many traders believe that the bears attack their prey swiping its paws downward. Therefore, when the price of the cryptocurrency is falling, and each subsequent value is lower than the previous one, and it is called bear trend. In such situation, people say bears dominate the market and sell their assets.

    Among them, there are many bears who know how to earn on the falling price. However, many participants of the market wait for the approximation to the lowest point of the trend and the further growth. It’s considered a good moment for the entry on the market. Therefore, many people believe that the start of the bear trend is a good time for selling, and the end of the bear trend is a good moment for purchases.

    How to recognize the bears

    The trader should determine the start of a bear market as soon as possible. For that, it’s necessary to see the cryptocurrency price diagram or draw it on your own using two or three points of the cryptocurrency price. One can easily see the downward trend.

    It is just the same as with the bull trend. There’s no need to hurry up and take hasty decisions. If the price is moving down it doesn’t mean the bear trend. It can be just a correction at the market. Wait for several days, then you will be able to determine the presence of the sustainable trend. For the cryptocurrencies market, it’s extremely important as the price fluctuations can occur very quickly, just in several hours.

    Cryptocurrency Trading Strategies: Scalping​

    Cryptocurrencies as a trading asset have not been around for long, but many traders have figured out pretty fast that cryptocurrency trading has its own patterns which allow to develop trading strategies. One of these strategies is scalping.

    Basics of scalping

    Scalping is the execution of multiple short-term transactions aiming to make profit on the intraday fluctuations of cryptocurrency prices. Profits made in each transaction are small, but they can compound into a large gain.

    The trader will first carefully study cryptocurrency price trends using charts, latest transactions and the order book. They will then position their orders and closely monitor cryptocurrency behavior to make an instant profit.

    Advantages of scalping

    Scalping uses the high volatility of cryptocurrency prices while decreasing dependence on market trends. In other words, the trader who uses this strategy can make profit in any market conditions: both on the rise, and on the downturn. Even though this strategy requires a great deal of concentration and self-discipline, it can also bring in a fair daily return.

    Cryptocurrency Trading Strategies: News Based Trading​

    It is rightfully assumed that cryptocurrency prices are strongly affected by news. News based trading is one of the popular methods to trade on cryptoexchange. Let's have a closer look at some of the fundamental principles you need to adhere to in order to preserve and increase your funds.

    Most traders operate as follows:

    - When news are bad, all traders fear a drop in price and engage in a “sale”.
    - When news are good, they buy cryptocurrency.

    This is an adequate response to news. However, in terms of making profit this is not always the right strategy.

    If you want to make profit, the right strategy would be the opposite one:

    - When news is bad, buy cryptocurrency.
    - When news is good, sell cryptocurrency.

    In this case, you'll be able to make profit since cryptocurrency price is lower when news are bad.

    Sources

    A lot of beginning investors and traders notice that news have an impact on the Bitcoin price. A lot of them try to trade based on their own interpretation of the news. They soon can see that they suffer losses or fail to make profit by misinterpreting an event.

    The key reason for misinterpreting is using an unreliable source of news or, more often, a source that publishes the news too late for making trading decisions.

    Therefore, you need to find an adequate source of news. One of the best sources is forums and blogs. It's also important that forum and blog participants share their trading knowledge and experience and analyze errors and problems.

    Local manipulators

    Some players on cryptocurrency exchanges set up groups tasked with initiating cryptocurrency price movement in the right direction. They can have significant means and use them to rapidly increase or decrease the price.

    However, local manipulators don't need to spend their own funds — they could just make a stir around a piece of news and force traders buy or sell cryptocurrency. This is exactly when manipulators make a profit by making the right bids. If an exchange has a chat, it's an advantage for manipulators since they can use it to directly influence traders.

    There's some speculation — though having no proof just yet — that certain global news regarding cryptocurrencies are also initiated by manipulator groups. Operations of some exchanges were even suspended this and last years on suspicion of using insider information.

    Therefore, even if you trust your source, you must always double-check all news, employ analytical tools and compare price movement on various trading platforms.

    Cryptocurrency Trading Strategies: Arbitrage​

    In previous publications, we talked about some popular trading strategies, such as scalping and news based trading. Today, we'll tell you about another strategy — arbitrage.

    The arbitrage strategy is when a trader trades on multiple exchanges. They use the difference in cryptocurrency prices on different exchanges and makes a profit on this difference. The trader compares prices on multiple exchanges and calculates the profit: where cryptocurrency can be bought at a lower price and sold at a higher price. In other words, the trader compares the price of the same cryptocurrency on different exchanges and calculates when the profit will be larger.

    Arbitrage is not an easy-to-use strategy, but it's quite profitable

    This strategy cannot be regarded as an easy-to-use strategy, but such trading can be the most profitable. To engage in arbitrage, you need to register accounts on multiple cryptoexchanges and carefully analyze and memorize their respective functionalities. You need to do it to rapidly respond and not to lag behind when you create buy/sell orders.

    It's important to correctly calculate fees to be paid for transferring funds between exchanges and to account for the deposit/withdrawal rate. You should also analyze and memorize how prices usually change on specific platforms. Just like with any other strategy, it's good to master analytical tools, learn how to rapidly and competently read and understand charts.

    What is an Order Book on the Cryptoexchange?​

    An order book is a serious and efficient tool that can be used to analyze the cryptocurrency situation. This is how it works.

    Buying and selling

    The order book is a visualization of bids and asks on the exchange. It provides you with in-depth information about the correlation and volume of cryptocurrency demand and supply in real time.

    On SIGEN the blue part (green or other colors on other exchanges) of the order book shows Buy Orders. The red part shows Sell Orders. Consequently, the market price is most often between the best sell price and the best buy price.

    Information in the order book reflects the depth and sentiment of the market and can be used to make pretty accurate forecasts regarding cryptocurrency price movement. The order book shows the biggest orders that can be used to make trading decisions.

    Pricing

    The order books allows you to simultaneously see two price categories: the topmost Buy Order reflects the highest price buyers are ready to pay for cryptocurrency while the topmost Sell Order reflects the lowest price sellers are ready to sell the asset for.

    For instance, the price in the order book is fixed the following way: when cryptocurrency is sold at a favorable price, it's replaced by another order with the ask price higher than in the previous order. Transactions follow one another, with each subsequent one more expensive than the previous one. With falling prices, the situation is similar, except that the buyer creates a low-price order and when this order “plays out”, another order is created, with an even lower price.

    As a rule of thumb, picking the entrance point with the help of the order book works best for players who aim to hold their positions over some trading sessions.

    Whatever purposes you are to use the order book for, you should do so carefully. Why? We'll tell you in our next publication.

    Movement in the order book: Trend and Manipulation​

    As mentioned in the previous publication, the order book may be a useful aid in determining the trading strategy on the cryptomarket.

    Trend

    The information in the order book clearly reflects the predominating market sentiment — buy or sell. You can see how demand and supply correlate. Each trader makes their own decision as to how they are going to trade using the order book data. However, most of them will follow the trend while strengthening it further.

    When the price change dynamics is especially high, aspiring traders must be very careful not to fall victim to the stir around buying at a high price and not to take part in the panic selling of cryptocurrencies.

    The trend may be modified by a big player or multiple players who create very big orders against the general trend. The price may also change under pressure from a lot of traders who simultaneously respond to certain events on the cryptocurrency market, such as the news.

    Manipulations

    Aspiring traders often confine themselves to the order books since the latter visualize things very well, and traders think they don't need any other tools. This strategy, however, is a mistake.

    The truth is the order book does not show the entire picture of the market:
    - Big players may create false order and later cancel them. This will cause the trader to respond to changes in order book data randomly and incorrectly, thus suffering losses.
    - Big orders with the price being 1 or 2 points lower or higher than the market price can be created for manipulation purposes, to create the feeling a massive buy or sell is about to happen.
    - Some players don't even create orders — they just store coins on their balance and sometimes use orders previously created by other players; therefore, the order book will not reflect the real demand / supply picture.

    Order books are often manipulated; to prevent it, you need to crosscheck order book data using other tools for price movement analysis or even turn to the order book as the last thing. If price movement seems suspicious, you should compare prices on a few exchanges.

    How Can You See the “Double Bottom” and Use It to “Hit the Skies”?​

    A lot of trading players look forward to the so-called “double bottom”. The name derives from a very particular charting pattern. Why this name and what's interesting about it?

    Chart

    The “double bottom” looks like the letter W. This chart pattern is generated when the price hits a low (the “first bottom”), then rebounds and drops again (the “second bottom”) to finally soar.

    This movement demonstrates that the market is out of balance, with traders fighting to close transactions during the “first bottom”. When the price starts to rebound, some traders open positions, and the price drops. Traders with a good reaction manage to make quite a profit from the W-shaped pattern. Holders, i. e. traders who hold their assets and do not respond to minor market movements.

    The “double bottom” may be forecast even before it starts to form. For example, when a long-term slump in price is interrupted by good news and the price starts to slowly grow.

    Using the double bottom

    It's important to promptly notice that the “double bottom” is forming: drop – rebound — drop and subsequent price growth. The point is that a part of investors leaves on each curve of this pattern believing that they know how the trend is going to change further. Obviously, they make the same mistake three times before they can see that the price, having gone through the drop – rebound – drop sequence, starts to soar.

    In this case, the most patient players are the ones that win. This patience is based on a better knowledge of how to use the tools for price movement analysis and on not jumping to conclusions.

    Accumulating and Distributing: a Thing or Two About the Accumulation/Distribution Indicator​

    The Accumulation/Distribution indicator (AD) was first described by L. Williams in 1972 in his book “How I Made One Million Dollars”. Let's talk about it in a little more detail.

    AD

    Accumulation/Distribution is a volume-based indicator accounting for the general trend, volume of trading as well as the opening/closing prices and low/high prices. On the plus side, this indicator is synced with the price rather than based on calculating an average value. AD is primarily a trend indicator that both adequately determines the price at the observed point in time and is a useful tool for making forecasts. If selected, this indicator is usually displayed below the main chart of security price movement.

    Interpreting AD

    There's a mathematical formula that helps interpret this indicator. However, most traders confine themselves to the visual observation since the Accumulation/Distribution indicator is sufficiently insightful in itself.

    The indicator shows that the nearer the closing price is to the high or low price, the bigger share is obtained by the bulls (traders operating for a rise) or bears (traders operating for a fall).

    Accordingly, if the indicator shows the price closing in a downtrend (the indicator value is less than zero), bears are dominating; if the price closes in an uptrend (the indicator value if greater than zero), bulls are dominating. On other words, the market is owned by the former or the latter.

    Moreover, if the trend updates the extreme value (maximum or minimum) while AD does not reproduce this update, it may mean the trend is about to reverse.

    As we can see, the Accumulation / Distribution indicator may be the key indicator for selecting the trading strategy on the cryptomarket.

    Important Rules of Cryptotrading: No Greed, No Panic​

    In one of the previous publications, we already told you about the main rules to be followed by a trader on the cryptocurrency market. Today, we'd like to consolidate this knowledge and tell you about the two key rules to be known by each trader.

    Don't fall victim to greed

    Don't fall victim to the desire to earn as much and as fast as possible by buying cryptocurrencies with no regard to the price and the trend. Don't expect the price to always soar or slump unless analysis tools unambiguously prove it. If an aspiring trader feels the thrill that cannot be analytically explained, it's time to stop and exit the trade.

    Don't surrender to panic


    Panic is even more dangerous than greed. It's harder to tackle since usually it attacks you when the price collapses — it seems you could lose all your assets. However, you often need to stop and exit the trade to avoid becoming a part of panic selling.

    As regards cryptocurrencies during panic selling events, it's worth remembering that, despite their volatility in the short and medium term, in the long term cryptocurrencies demonstrate a constant growth, and it's best to be able to trade in the current prices rather than surrender to emotion, sell all your assets and quit trading for good.
