Dear Friends,

This is the third lesson of my lecture series. Today we will discuss about how to do a simple trade and all what you need to know as a beginner. My lecture series is completely designed for beginners , where I started from the basics and wanted to give you a practical knowledge. In my first lecture, Introduction to cryptocurrency trading , we discussed how to select a crypto currency exchange and a crypto currency to trade. And in our second lesson , How to setup a trading account in a Cryptocurrency Exchange , we discussed how to create a trading account in a crypto currency exchange , how to deposit assets, how to withdraw assets etc... And all of you practically did that through the homework task 2 for different exchanges. Today we will go one step further. Let's trade !


What is a Cryptocurrency Spot Market ?

A crypto currency spot market is a place where crypto sellers and crypto buyers get together to trade their crypto assets. A spot market means a place where the exchange or the trade initiated instantly. In a spot market , a trade is instantly settled when the buyers offering price and sellers bid price are equal. This price is called the spot price or current price.

These spot markets are active 24/7 and they operate continuously. And your digital funds can be deposited and withdrawn at any time you need. Majority of the crypto traders will manually place their buying and selling orders and some traders use automated trading tools to place orders. We will discuss about them in our future lessons. Now let's identify the basic things you need to know in a spot market.


Let's Trade...

After logging in to your Binance account , navigate over to the BTC/STEEM trading pair. In this page you can see partitions like Order book , which shows the buy and sell requests placed by buyers and sellers. The graph at the center shows the variation of Steem price over Bitcoin over time. And in the right hand side you can see the Trade History , which shows a records of individual trades which are executed on this trading pair Steem/Btc . The main characteristics of the crypto spot market is that when you're placing an order to buy or sell cryptocurrency the order is executed instantly. When you place a order for one bitcoin the exchange will instantly execute that order to buy one bitcoin on the order book that you're currently looking at. That means there's essentially no settlement period. When the order is placed with the exchange , it executes that order between the buyer and the seller instantly. The way that spot markets work is there's an order book and on that order book people can place orders to either buy or sell their cryptocurrency. The orders on the bottom down are the bid orders the people that are looking to buy bitcoin. The top orders in red color are the asking prices for bitcoin essentially the people that are looking to sell bitcoin for Steem. However if we don't place an order above or equal the current best asking price , the order won't execute immediately it will get placed on the order book and it will remain on the order book until somebody takes that order. but as soon as somebody comes along and takes that order the order is executed instantly. The trading process is very simple , you need to learn it buy trying by yourself. It's the best way to learn.

Trading fees

The newbie traders who start trading sometimes pay unnecessary payments as fees. You must find out all the information about fees and rates for the exchange you have selected. In leading trading platforms , the trading fee varies in-between 0.05% and 0.2% per one trade or a transaction. Trusted exchanges make these fees public always. If trading fees are hidden in an exchange platform ,you should think again before trading.
We need to pay a fee for the exchange platform for each and every trade we make. Different exchange platforms have different trading fees. Binance platform has the lowest trading fees compared to other exchanges. The trading fee schedule of Binance is as follows. Reference


And exchange platforms charges a fee for depositing and withdrawing assets. For majority of the there is no deposit fee but there is a withdrawing fee. And depositing and withdrawing fees varies on the crypto currency. You can find the rates here for Binance where almost all the coins deposit is free and there is only a fee for withdrawing.

A word before start trading ..

It's a great challenge for a beginner to trade cryptocurrencies and obtain a profit. For an experienced trader , even with a small capital , has the ability to increase it with correct predictions. A trader must perform a correct fundamental and technical market analysis before placing an order. At the same time you should monitor all the news related to each and every blockchain based project. One single news can change your life. But trading based on news is risky too as this crypto industry is running with gossips. People are very cleaver and they create news and profit. A trader must follow the significant characters who plays a crucial role in this crypto industry. Their actions and decisions make significant change in the crypto market prices. As a beginner you should learn to perform a technical analysis and predict the market. A traders is someone who learn with experience.

Greetings my friend @besticofinder

I really liked the tasks you send to perform, so I have joined to perform task 2, however, this one I did it in Spanish.

My question is, should I do it in English to be reviewed by you and @steemcurator01?

My intention is to make the explanation clearer to the Spanish-speaking people.

I will be doing task 3, very good topic.

Thank you for your commitment to the Steemit community.

Here my post:

Hi Friend ,
No you can post it in any language. I can review using a translator. No problem with that. But make sure to post the article in Steemit Crypto Academy community. I missed your posts as I check articles within the community.

Una pregunta amigo. Disculpa mi intromicion. Pero la tarea no era un artuclo explicando el comercio al contacto y el comercio de margen? No entendi. Puedes explicarme? Lei tu post.

Saludos amigo, es cierto, debes explicar a que se refiere y como generar una orden de compra al contado y otra al margen. Al contado es cuando generas una compra con capital propio, y al Margen, es cuando generas una compra con préstamo.

Esto debes profundizarlo en tu publicación.

i think sir it is best selection in series so it is very much important topic for new trader after creating trading account ,, nice lesson

I wanted to support the newcomers.. I try to make them as simple as possible. Hope people get support from these articles .. Thanks for the feedback !

Спасибо за ваш замечательный пост. Я к сожалению не умею торговать с маржой, торгую только на спотом. Ждала объяснения маржевой торговли от наших профессоров и от вас в первую очередь. Может вы могли бы подготовить ещё один пост о маржевой торговле. Это сложный вид торговли, там много тонкостей, как правильно выставить ордер, с какой маржой... Была бы очень рада, если б вы подготовили такой пост. Спасибо вам.

Yes , Thanks for your comment. I will organize a lesson on margin trading soon.

Очень признательна вам за ваш ответ. Буду ждать с нетерпением ваш пост о маржинальной торговле.
Хорошего дня вам.

Hello, dear professor @besticofinder, this class was very good, the truth was I did not know what the margin trade was, now I have known how it is, although I see that it is a bit risky, maybe I am not ready for that yet, if I operated under these conditions I think it would be the same as going to a casino. What do you say?

Thank you very much for this class.

Here I leave you my homework, I hope you review it and it will be useful for the rest of the colleagues. Greetings: D
