Day Trading

Technical analysis (TA)

Technical analysis is statistical analysis of past market data to forecast future price of the coin. basic data to consider for statistical analysis is past price and past volume. customers are using various tools to plot and analyse the data. There are online statistical tools available to do crypto TA like tradingview.com, Coinigy.com etc.

Fundamental Analysis (FA)

FA is the analysis of management and development team, purpose of coin, coin/token intrinsic value, mass adaptability etc.
Crypto FA is different from share stock FA.

  • In the case of stock share, we have available financial statement of the company to analyse FA.
  • In the case of crypto, coin/Token whitepaper is basic information to do FA. Further data can be collected from technical development of the coin and it's usage with time.

Example -
BTC/USD - Trading between BTC and US dollar (FIAT). BTC can be bought by US$ or BTC can be sold for US$.
BTC/USDT - Trading between BTC and Tether. Buy BTC from tether or sell BTC for Tether crypto.
Ada/BTC - Buy Ada with BTC or sell Ada for BTC.

  • Bid - All the orders, which are bidding price to buy coins and order is not filled, will be displayed in Bid section.
    customer who is interested to sell, he can sell to the bid if meeting his target price.
  • Ask - All the orders, which are asking price to sell coins and order is not filled, will be displayed in Ask section.
    customer who is interested to buy, he can buy from the ask if meeting his target price.
  • Spread - The difference in the minimum price of Ask and maximum price of Bid is called spread.
    In above order book,
    Minimum Ask price - 6941.34363186 USDT
    Maximum Bid Price - 6920.00000001 USDT
    So Spread = 6941.34363186-6920.00000001 = 21.34363185
