    Can anyone recommend a secure and reliable exchange for purchasing cryptocurrencies that allows purchases to be made in AUD?

    Btc markets is pretty good never had a problem. About $8k withdrawal a day or more for one offs. Fees are reasonable. Some of the others rort you on the spread, then on the fees.

    Can I go off track from the above few posts or maybe off-topic for a minute?

    Can't remember if this point has been raised before?

    The number of SPAM or JUNK emails relating to Bitcoin has dramatically increased over the past 3-4 months. These SPAM emails have always been around but there has been a massive increase recently. Even porn, get-rich-quick, etc emails are very far and few in between but Bitcoin, etc emails are flowing in consistently. I do not look at the Bitcoin emails but there are heaps of them.

    It is criminals looking suckers. I personally think that the end is nigh for Bitcoin by this increase of emails - it looks like a desperate attempt to get more suckers.

    I admit I know very little about Bitcoin but the increase of SPAM emails feels like it is telling me something.

    Can try Yahoo Finance.
    Quotes are in USD.

    Or use Amiquote to download for Amibroker charting.

    eg.
    LTC-USD, BTC-USD, XMR-USD, ETH-USD, DOGE-USD, XRP-USD, etc, etc......

    I was chatting to a mate last night, ex-propex trader, he had recently visited a Sydney prop firm to see thier crypto desk. According to what he saw and discussed the prop guys are in this big and it's not in the futures. They've got guys trading the actual coins on Korean exchanges. They've even got thier own depth of market (dom) custom built for this stuff. He said they're scalping for 10-50 ticks and absolutely smashing it....old school, just levels, spoofing, just like the old days before algoes. No spread trading, just outright directional. He's also doing something with it as well as he had his own ladder built for the Chinese commodities markets...will be trading in the crypto space in a matter of weeks....

    How do they get the money out of Korean trades?
    I thought there were some kind of rules about getting money out of Korea.

    Obviously the Russians would have been using Cryptocurrency to move funds around and circumvent sanctions. No suprise that now it has been smashed down about 40%, some are trying to get it up again with 'news breaks' of their own!

    Being in a US shutdown environment should have helped cryptos more than what has occurred if they were still in the crazy zone.

    Russia and North Korea both were heavy in coins.
    The deep conspiracy derp said the US pushed for the crash just to shove it up the Russians and NK.

    Really, the USA cannot even get their finances in order, last I checked they were in shutdown. If anything it is Russia who is laughing at the US.

    Go Donald, you can make a deal and close down the US for at least 12weeks, giving you time to build that beautiful wall you promised as long as a cute looking lady doesn't walk by and you get distracted.

    Actually Russians are up the creek. Putin losing power as well. Younger generation is over him. Sanctions are hurting them.

    Definitely not the futs - Illiquid garbage.
    BitMex does vol, BTCBox and a few of the JP exchanges do vol and charge no comm for now
