What are the best resources for a beginner to bitcoin trading?

I have been reading up on Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies for a while, so I can invest and make money. What are some tools, trackers, exchanges, wallets and analysis resources you'd suggest?

    Finally something that is actually intuitive, behaves like other apps and doesn't make you think, "Well, I guess my identity is getting stolen today." Happy to pay a fee on transactions for that peace of mind.

    Coinbase is without a doubt the easiest place for a beginner to buy bitcoin. It also serves as a safe place to store bitcoin, ether, and litecoin if you don't want to manage your private keys on your own.

    Coinbase is super easy for beginners, but be ready that you will encounter downtime as soon as markets start to move a bit more. - Temporary outages are standard for crypto exchanges, but coinbase seems to handle them a bit better than others (kraken for example). + 1 click buying with creditcard works great as well.

    When it comes to trading, one should follow all the news and events that happen in the Bitcoin ecosystem 🚀 I recommend CoinBuzz.stream. It is a simple cryptocurrency news aggregator that I have created. CoinBuzz.stream collects data from multiple API and displays info in a form of friendly Trello-style cards. Currently, 100 top coins are supported, and the number is growing.

    Bittrex is my favorite exchange - it has an intuitive UI, it's fast and doesn't experience connectivity issues like other exchanges (cough Poloniex cough). It has all the currencies you'd want to trade as a beginner trader.

    CoinDesk is a great resource for keeping up with bitcoin and blockchain news. You should also follow thought leaders in the space on Twitter (they should be able to find easily by a quick Google search).

    Bitstamp

    Hi @Kesav I would suggest bitstamp if you want to get the bitcoins for cheap as almost all exchanges in India are selling bitcoin for 15-25% premium over the international rates. I won't suggest coinbase unless you have a relative or friend (whom you can trust) in an european country or Australia, Singapore etc. as coinbase still doesn't support trading in India. Zebpay, Coinome and Coinsecure are my recommendations if you wish to trade in an Indian exchange. You can keep the bitcoins at the exchange wallet (which means they are controlling the private keys for you) but I'm damn sure that you got to know about the recent hack news. So I recommend you to buy a hardware wallet like Trezor (which I'm using) or Ledger Nano S and control the private key yourself. To track the price volatility (for bitcoin), I recommend you to visit https://www.bfxdata.com/orderboo... or tradingview. You can follow some great twitter handles for more insights. Like ... Max Keiser, Andreas, Lopp etc. Personal Recommendation: Don't buy BCH or BCC (aka Bitcoin cash, aka Bcash) thinking that is bitcoin because that campaign is there all over internet. Roger, Craig and Juhan is behind this and this spoils the idea of a decentralised financial system. There is only one bitcoin, which is BTC. Happy trading :) #BTCisBitcoin #BcashIsBcrash

    Trezor

    The First Hardware Bitcoin Wallet

    If you want to store your private keys yourself (which you should), the Trezor is probably the most popular hardware wallet. Once you do a little reading on how hardware wallets work, it's super easy to setup and understand.
