    • Chris Dunn

      All your videos provide excellent value.
      Focusing on the broader spectrum and keeping it simple .
      Thank you Chris , keep up the good work.

    • Amazing content. I hope those that are new take note. This is what smart money sounds like.

    • Zilbercoin (ZBC) on low start! Next week announce the cool news on this coin .. I think you can do (x30) … (x50) for this summer .. scant number of coins on the market .. I advise you to look at this project .. I wrote about this project two weeks ago the price was 3 cents.

  2. Rsi is my favourite tool.
    Also i use dollar cost averaging to scale my position, also managing risk.

  3. Many tools to draw a plausible scenario for predicting the market , but my most used in Crypto has to be the number of longs/shorts open in bitmex .

    I can trade on market sentiment alone

  4. Well i think that previous price action, resistance and support are the most beneficial tool. Hit like if you agree.

  5. I have a trade setup called the Dav-O (its not what I choose to call it my colleagues did) and its simple and very effective. Using OBV and RSI if there is a W in both or M in both at the same time then the W is bullish and M is bearish. There is more to it than that such as where your stops should be, Entry, and Target. I wrote a script to show me when my trade has fired and I have noticed on Crypto it works great on fiat currency markets its a disaster as it seems the market deliberately stops you out in an FU move and then with salt in the wound it goes in the direction that would have made you money. d

  6. About the last question : I mainly use Fibo, SMA (50,100,200,300), and RSI. RSI’s has been an incredible indicator in 2017. if you look at RSI’s neutral zone at the 38 level you could just predict every 2017 bottoms. But I fell that what happened in early 2018’s is like a bubble that burst. I’ve asked many unkown people about bitcoin in the street and that’s a great way to know if we’re going into a new market cycle imho :
    2017 it was like “never heard about bitcoin” or “I’ve heard it one time on TV”
    2018 : “Oh yes my brother/cousin/friend bought a lot at the top and then it crashed”

    Thanks again Chris for your vid
