@ everyone asking about trading info, how to trade, what to trade, why to trade, etc...
& not sure if this is already said:you can learn from educational material about the stock market how everything works.there really isn't any way to quickly explain anything, but if you spend a few hours learning you will be amazed how much better you understand the subject. its not as complex as it first appears.
for example Wikipedia and just chain your way through everything that comes up re stocks, investment, hedging, day trading, options, technical analysis.
also of some worth is investopedia where u can sign up for a free account to trade play money on stocks or options. I did that and that's how I came to understand stock markets (in a limited capacity) and different types of investment strategies.
just google and Wikipedia and then take what you learn, look at this mess of alt coins, the exchanges for them, and decide accordingly where you might best fit into the picture.
there are various types of trading, day trading, arbitrage, hedging strategies and so forth u might employ, it depends on your level of understanding of the concepts (or else you will fail) and your personal nature, risk profile. some people are ok with throwing around 10k to make 10$ on some random junk stock (coin). others prefer a slower pace, and stick to medium term trading in some of the more established stocks (coins). some are better at technical analysis, others fundamentals (you need to learn these terms, atm fundamentals are only beginning to affect alt coins imo)
if a lot of institutional investing comes along you can expect arbing across exchanges to be pretty difficult. (read impossible). im not sure the level to which this is/has already is taking place.
if anyone knows of any short selling or put options available on these markets let me know, I haven't really gone looking hard, but I didn't find any yet. you cant hedge properly without one of the two.
