Stormgain Crypto Trading Challenge Jan 25th: Profits on the Rebound!



After a couple of rather dull days with an outstanding $500 trading hanging around in the red, Bitcoin suddenly rebounded and on the third day the $150 "Take Profit" threshold was breached and it was money in the bank!

Just for the sake of sportsmanship I went long on Bitcoin again, $500 with 25x leverage but I closed it out as soon as I saw it was in double digits of profits for just $18 to finish the day with a nice little addition to the pot of $169 when you include the fractions.

Today's two trades are the top and bottom of the three in the chart. The $150 profit came from the trade that I opened over the weekend and that closed out when the "take profit" was triggered this afternoon. The $3 profit in the middle was yesterday's, and the top listing is the quick dip in and out of the market that I took this evening.


My January 2021 “profit” has grown to $4,307 so far!

Come along for the ride as I try to learn how to trade my way to a profit and keep hold of the loot!
