My aim with this blog is to be completely transparent about my trading journey so that others can see the REAL trading and investing experience of a beginner.
Why am I investing and trading? Because I want to take full control over my financial destiny without having to work to a ripe old age before I can explore this world, relying on a pension that may not even exist!

Having real frustrating trouble with Cryptopia Exchange. They are holding my DCN coin and it is only tradeable with either LTC or DOGE coins on that exchange. And both those networks are down. Cryptopia has no idea when they are likely to be reconnected again.
I considered transfering my DCN out to another exchange, but the transfer fee by Cryptopia is a whopping 14790 DCN coming in around about $23-$25NZD (£12-£13 ish) at current DCN prices.
Cryptopia support has been contacted and I see so many other with the same issue. Two things Cryptopia could do to help us out here.
- Enable DCN to be tradable for BTC on their exchange (BTC networks are ok)
- Reduce fees to allow us to get our coin to another exchange or wallet (fees were set when DCN was dirt cheap at around about $2NZD)
Do you have currency stuck in Cryptopia? Would love to hear from you…

IG.COM shares spreadbetting
I’ve also stuck a few funds into some long-term holdings on IG.com for trading shares.
I’m checking these and placing trades weekly, and currently holding:
- Evraz PLC (long)
- Coats Group PLC (long)
- Assura Group PLC (Long)
- Thomas Cook Group PLC (Long)
Very little happening with these four trades and I haven’t looked at any other stocks this week.
