I have made 57319 satoshis from trading, after trading fees. Which represents an 18.68% return - which is not bad for a month's work!
Some of the trades that I put on weeks ago have finally executed - eg the sell of mintcoins. See screenshot at the bottom of the page - it took ages for the buy order to execute and then ages for the sell to execute. But the profit was 33% - so not bad, even though I only traded a small amount, due to the risk of trading something that low priced (coins that low have a tendency to fall so far down they are demoted to litoshi status). Anyway, have reinvested my profits into another mint trade - lets see what happens.
Another slow moving coin is mazacoin - see screenshot below. I waited seventeen days for it all to play out. Other coins like digibyte are much faster moving - as the screenshot shows, I was able to place several trades in one day. Sadly digibyte is in the midst of a pump at the moment, so I dare not place any more trades because I don't want to be caught out in a dump. I prefer the stable coins that seem to go nowhere moving just a couple of satoshis up and down.
As I keep reinvesting my profits, I hope to compound my returns. It will be slower than I hoped because not sure I'll get more faucet money in the near future - but that's one of the obstacles you run into real life.
