I've dabbled with day trading a little bit as a quick and easy (but sometimes very risky) way to increase my holdings.
This typically plays out with me selling a portion (or all) of my holdings after a nice gain, then waiting for a pullback to buy back in at a lower price. The downside to this strategy is that you can get caught out of position and may have to buy back in at a much higher price than you sold. Thus, if you aren't careful (or are very unlucky), you will actually end up decreasing your holdings--despite maybe increasing vs. fiat currency.
What are your thoughts on trading vs HODLing?
