The Crypto Trader

How anyone can make money trading Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies

By Glen Goodman

Jacket text

The real-life trades and strategies of a successful cryptocurrency trader

Glen Goodman’s goal was to retire young and wealthy, escaping the daily grind. He taught himself how to trade everything from shares to Bitcoin and made enough money to realise his dream and quit his day job while still in his 30s.

In The Crypto Trader, Glen will show you exactly how he made huge profits trading Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple and more, so that you can do it too – without risking your shirt.

Glen publicly called the top of the market in December 2017 and took his profits before the crash. But there are still tons of trading opportunities out there and Glen continues to trade crypto successfully.

Inside you’ll see his multi-hundred-percent gains on a raft of cryptocurrencies and learn how he builds his profits and holds onto them. Glen reveals all his trading strategies, the proven methods and rules that make him one of the most followed traders in the world on social media. (He is also frequently interviewed by the BBC, Forbes and LBC, and is a contributing expert on cryptocurrency at the London School of Economics.)

It took Glen years of study and trial and error to become a consistent money maker. He learnt his trading lessons the hard way – so you don’t have to. With The Crypto Trader by your side, you’ll learn how to grab opportunities, make money – and keep it.

About the author

Glen Goodman was an ITV news reporter who traded the markets for extra cash - until one day he realised he was a successful trader who did TV reporting for extra cash. He famously turned a £3,000 trade into £100,000 by betting there would be a financial crash in 2008, an experience he later recounted in The Times.
He worked as a business correspondent for BBC and ITV News, interviewing Theresa May, Boris Johnson and David Cameron among others.

With his growing trading income, Glen was able to leave his job in his 30s. When he started trading cryptocurrencies, his Facebook page 'The Shares Guy' (www.facebook.com/thesharesguy) became the biggest trading page in the world. He is now regularly interviewed by the media including the BBC, Forbes and LBC, and is a contributing expert on cryptocurrency at the London School of Economics.
