The year 2019 has been slow for most digital currencies. At the beginning of the year, Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and Ripple (XRP) maintained the same low price points as the end of the previous year. This was largely owing to a long-running market correction following the post-2017 crypto boom.However, things seemed to pick up in the past few weeks, starting with predictions from industry experts in early June that Bitcoin would hit the 5-figure mark again. In the third week of June, there were signs that the currency might actually scale that point. These signs were confirmed when Bitcoin surpassed $10,000 on June 22nd.Other currencies like Ethereum were not left out, and the bulk of the positive reactions were borne by those who had bought these assets at low prices when a good portion of the community had lost interest in them.So now that prices have skyrocketed, what next?Let’s run through the reasons for this sudden climb in the prices of the top digital currencies and how they may affect the future of cryptocurrency.Before finding out why the top four digital currencies skyrocketed within the last week of June, we’ll look at just how significant these recent gains were.
Leverage is a means via which the trader can multiply the amount they invest in a currency by, in effect, borrowing capital from the broker. A leverage of 50:1, for example, means that a trader can invest £50 and, on the strength of that investment, take up positions worth £2,500. This greatly increases the size of the profit that can be made, although it has a similar effect on the risk of any losses. Leverage as high as 500:1 can be available for forex trades, whereas the same is not true of the vast majority of cryptocurrency trades.
When you’re ready to purchase some forex education, you will decide on signing up for an online course, possibly with a community membership aspect, or finding someone you admire and joining a one-on-one mentoring program. The latter is the most expensive option by far but will provide you with highly personalized training and superior support through your early trades. This option will be excessive for most, and generally people will be happy paying a subscription or lump sum fee for life-time access to an in-depth training course plus ongoing membership to a community with regular trading support.
The risk factor inherent in both forms of trading is linked directly to the volatility of the respective markets. The fact that cryptocurrencies aren’t linked to a central provider makes them more volatile than traditional currencies. On one day in 2019, for example, the value of bitcoin slumped by 13.25%, and this was only the second biggest drop of the year. You simply don’t see this kind of dramatic movement in the forex markets.
The subject can be broken into two different categories - general knowledge and price action knowledge. The first two groups of courses above (under Free Online Courses and Forex Training Providers) are ‘general’ forex market training. And the last group (Forex Price Action Courses) are sites specifically focused on price action strategies. If you are completely new to the world of forex, for example you aren’t sure what price action strategies are, then you should be focusing on general knowledge first.
