Anyone else short crypto not receiving their carry?

Recommended Posts

The reason why a trader would be short is because Bitcoin has gone from high $19,000 to current price of around $13300!


A long term investor in Bitcoin would not be short and may choose to add to their position on any corrections and dips whilst the long term upward trend is in tact.


There are many ways to profit from Bitcoin. It presents a compelling opportunity to make profits. At one time I was both invested in Bitcoin and trading it short term, at times buying and selling within minutes and hours. 


I found shorting Bitcoin very tricky as after any downward move came a big upward move and stop loss being triggered before the downward move re-commenced. I experienced this during the $2000.00 range. It was extremely volatile back then and the moves were sharp, sudden and extremely quick.


To me Ether's 4 hour chart looks more positive towards the upside (only at the time of writing) compared to Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash.
