Investing & Trading in Cryptocurrencies Using Volume Price Analysis: Full Colour (Paperback)
No other market has the power to create strong and diverse opinions than the brave new world of cryptocurrencies. On one side lie the detractors convinced this is nothing more than a bubble and one which will burst in the fullness of time. On the other are the supporters, championing these new and exciting financial instruments created to replace traditional currencies, and so usher in a new and transparent order finally free from the shackles of central banks and government controls.And what is perhaps more interesting still, is that this new digital asset class also defines and reflects a seismic shift in the social order and values. For it is the tech savvy young who perhaps have been the most affected by the great financial crisis of 2008, and so see cryptocurrencies as the way ahead, offering hope and opportunity, not only to make money, but also to cast out the old values and approaches and replace them with new technologically sophisticated assets.In some ways cryptocurrencies have become a standard bearer for the new to replace the old, and offering a clarion call to reject the past and replace it with the new of the future. In this book, I do not take sides because the purpose of this book is to twofold. First, to explain these new digital assets their strengths, weaknesses as well as the opportunities. And second to explain, with the use of over eighty annotated chart examples, how you can apply my volume price methodology to your own trading and investing decisions. Here is a methodology that will help you make sense of the sometimes chaotic and volatile price action, based as it is on sound principles developed in other markets. Volume price analysis works, and all that's required is a chart with volume and price, and is a perfect fit here, given prices are primarily driven by supply and demand. Peer to peer buying and selling is what lies at the heart of cryptocurrencies and so creates the demand or lack of demand. Yes, there is some market manipulation, and this may increase over time. But for the present the cryptocurrency markets reflect Wyckoff's third law: 'when demand is greater than supply, prices rise, and when supply is greater than demand, prices fall'.The 80 worked examples are in all timeframes and for different cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ripple, Ethereum, Dash, Tether and more. Each chart is clearly annotated with an accompanying explanation of the chart with points to note and lessons to learn. Volume price analysis can be applied to any timeframe and to any cryptocurrency asset. The choice is yours, and using this simple yet powerful approach will give you renewed insight and confidence when making your buying and selling decisions, whether as a longer term investor, or a speculative trader. Regardless of whether you believe cryptocurrencies are a short term phenomenon, or you subscribe to the view this is a brave new financial dawn full of exciting opportunities, we can be assured of one thing, they are here to stay. They may not be in their present iteration, and evolve in ways yet to be discovered, but there will always be a price chart to which volume price analysis can be applied.
