Trading Bitcoin on margin is shitty - the swap is killing the profits
In recent days I have negative swap ("financing") on my short positions. On 1fox it's up to 0.3% per 12 hours. On some platforms there is a 0.2% per 24 hours negative swap for long and for short positions (the broker is taking from both positions). Sometimes the swap is paid by short positions, sometimes by long. There are months that overall swap is near zero, but some months longs or shorts pay more (double digit percent per month!). This makes trading Bitcoin and other crypto on margin very shitty. When the market is clearly bullish long positions pay high swap that eats big chunk of the profits. In clearly bear market it is the opposite - short positions pay high swap. Compare this with EUUSD swap rate (0.0025262% daily positive swap for short positions, 0.00715765% negative swap daily for long positions - the rates differ on different platforms, this is just an example). I made some math with data from BitMex. For 14th, 15th and 16th June the swap is 0.7601% (shorts pay longs ) - it's about 0.25% per 24 hours. Compare this with EUUSD swap. For last 100 periods (one period is 8 hours) the swap is 0.5743% (shorts pay longs). Which is not that bad. However, there are months when the swap is double digit percent.

I’m in deep shock as all my life savings have been whipped out after the recent sell off in the market. Since I come from a really poor country from Eastern Europe I didn’t had quite a lot of money so trading cryptocurrencies on margin was quite appealing at that time. Now I have lost everything. I couldn’t even sleep as the current sell off was developing and now I’m in deep pain and I can’t really believe what just happened. Maybe if I could have just bought ripple when it was trading at $0.25 today’s story would have been different but Bitstamp never got to verify my account not even to this day. Guys, I really need help I’m not sure how the blockchain works but is there any way I can reclaim at least my initial investment. Can anyone help me how to do this? I can’t think of anything else right now but I desperately need to recover my money. This is my bitcoin address: 3AXdGepnMwScie8WEm4xs86NdxqXi6BKxC Thank you in advance!

Anyone used the leveraged Bitcoin ETFs on the MXC exchange?
Supposed to work like a regular leveraged ETF where you can go 3X long or short on bitcoin (and other cryptos) with no margin and thus no liquidation. Obviously it has it's disadvantages, I think mostly when the market is choppy or moves against you obviously. I know from using stock market leveraged ETFs that you can lose more than you can gain when the market moves against you an equal amount. I guess that's where they get you but they are very profitable when the market moves in your direction for a sustained time period. Not sure how well the MXC version works though. Has anyone used it...any thoughts compared to trading bitcoin on margin or futures? Cheers
I traded bitcoin at margin on a simulated exchange... if I did well does that mean I can do the same thing with real money?
I turned 1000 USD to 12000 USD in less than 2 months (not real money) by trading BTC at 20x margin on a simulated exchange. My question is basically, will the same trading strategies work on Bitmex or some margin allowing exchange if I use real money? Also, I cant find any crypto exchanges that allow margin trading in the U.S.
