  1. Ayaya…..i have watched several margin trading videos but no one simplified it the way you did it. Now I can confidently say I understand margin trading. Thanks Nathan and I am happy to follow you since 2017.

  2. This is what i was thinking and is it possible ?

    Buy 1 bitcoin at 30k
    (Price goes up a little bit)
    Sell at 31k
    And buy again bitcoin when its around 30k… which leaves me with the 1k profit from first trade.
    If you do this 3-4 times a week with profits between 500-1k thats 4-5k profit every week and IF the bitcoin will crash real hard you still gonna have the profits there. (BC wont crash ever bitcoins is to stable with to many and rich investors).
    Let me know what you think of this idea and does it work haha

  3. Do you have to put up some sort of collateral for them to take out the margin difference or will the IRS send you a letter in the mail like I don’t understand how they’re going to take your money if you don’t have anything for them to take if you’re borrowing the asset in the first place

  4. The second I buy a position it drops. It never fails. I am cursed. Everything I touch withers and dies. I am a plague. I am death. I want to learn how to short. I will be unmatched. Now that I know I am a piece of shit, I want to use that against itself. The only way I can make money is through the short.

  5. Alt-coins can also be short traded by large institutional investors but this is unlikely, IMO because only bitcoin will predictably rise after a short spree. And even if they did go down in price with Bitcoin they will all move up again with Bitcoin. In any event, they probably won't be viewed as being worth the trouble.

  6. You know what shorting btc reminds me of ? The Simpson's when homers banging on the food truck saying " weres my burrito weres my burrito" and the awning come loose and hits him in the head. The reward for shorting is just not worth it the maximum. Win is still just a whole burrito.

  7. Great content. I’m used to TradeView soooo much easier than Etoro but Brokers allll suck for small accounts.

    I am trying to familiarize myself with Etoro before going live. I am currently using the Demo/Virtual mode and I don’t see the SELL button. Is this not available for Virtual Mode?

  8. Theres major shorting on all the altcoins forgetting BTC for the moment. The question is how n where n on what exchanges is all this shorting being done? And why don't exchanges allow all tokens be shortable, if they aren't shorting these themselves? Who can answer this question? (I'm talking about ALGO ZRX REN etc on n on)

  9. Good to know that there are exchanges that allow this. Even if I never short crypto, it's good to know that shorting is an option; if all exchanges prohibited short-selling, there would be more opportunities for insiders to "rig" the game.

  10. Will there be an expiry date on options for bitcoin ? can you please make an video on Options , which broker having high volume , trading please ..we don't wanna go for broker where options expire's worthless ,3) if possible broker's list for bitcoin option trading
