Picking the Bottom for Bitcoin & Ethereum – When to Buy?

Recently, Bitcoin prices have crossed $4,800, and year-to-date, its price has surged nearly 400%, making it one of the best investments for the year. And it is not alone.

Other cryptocurrencies, such as Ethereum, have also been making new highs, and many more new products are hitting the market every day.

Which is why many of my friends, followers, and students have been asking me a lot about theses products, and most importantly, “when is a good time to buy?”

A post shared by Spencer Li 🇸🇬 Synapse Trading (@iamrecneps) on

When I first started trading, I was mainly doing stocks and CFDs, and I developed my “15 minutes a day” price action strategies for these. And as I expanded to new markets, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the same strategies worked perfectly well. To date, I have used them successfully on forex, futures, options, and most recently, on cryptocurrencies.

This means that for a new product like Bitcoin, which behaves very similarly to IPO stocks or some less popular penny stocks, its behavior can be best understood by studying its underlying price behaviour.

Many people who take one look at its prior meteoric rise will immediately come to the conclusion that is it near its high and too late to buy. But many people probably thought the same way about Apple and Tesla’s stock a few years back.

This means that there is potential for cryptocurrencies to go much higher, but how do we time our entry into something that is moving so fast?

Turns out we do have the perfect strategy for that, which is similar to the strategy we use to enter fast-moving counters in times of a strong trend. In fact, I pointed this out using the chart of Bitcoin during my last few workshops, and also at Invest Fair.

How far can this trend continue to run?

To be honest, no one can really tell, but all I know is that whenever there is a good buying opportunity, I will continue to add more positions to ride this strong trend until it ends. And when it does, I will get ready to short it down as well. 😀

But that is a story for another post.

Till then, trade safe, and aim big. Cheers!

An Exciting Week of Trades – AUD/CHF, EUR/USD, NZD/USD, etc!

Last week, we had some pretty decent trades in, netting close to US$2,000 in profits for a handful of quick trades, riding on the strength of the USD after the FOMC.

GBP/USD – Predicting the Big Short (And Cashing Out Big Profits on it!)

Last week, the Pound suffered its steepest daily fall of 2017 after a shock election result denied any party a majority in parliament days before Brexit negotiations begin.

Thankfully, our Synapse Network came fully prepared to profit from this move! 😀

Here is a highlight of the early prediction given by Spencer several days before the sharp plunge:

While waiting to short Gold, we took a short-term long trade to make some quick bucks on the side.

Live Trade Follow-up: GBP/JPY Short Trade US$1086 in the Money!

Announcement: I will be taking a long break to focus on my trading and coaching of existing students (as well as several new exciting projects), but before that I will be conducting one last session of the “Trading Foundation workshop” on 18 May 2017 and the last run this quarter of the “Trading Mastery Program” on 27 & 28 May 2017.


During the last “Trading Foundation Workshop”, we scanned various forex charts and discovered this short trade in GBP/JPY to be the best setup, and I took the live trade on the spot, together with many of the audience members.

And although I only took a small position of 0.50 lots, this trade shows that times and patience can snowball your returns, as long as you just “forget about it” and let the trade run its natural course.

During my final workshop tomorrow, I will be scanning all the charts for such good trades, and I have already spotted some juicy trades tonight while browsing through my charts.

Looking forward to share more tomorrow! 😀

P.S. I will be taking a long break to focus on my trading and coaching of existing students (as well as several new exciting projects), but before that I will be conducting one last session of the “Trading Foundation workshop” on 18 May 2017 and the last run this quarter of the “Trading Mastery Program” on 27 & 28 May 2017.
