LDO+ regulators do more than just regulate. They include monitor and control functions as well as regulation. The LT3081 (http://www.linear.com/3081) has a wide safe area, allowing operation with high currents at high input- output differentials. Output voltage is adjustable from from 0 to 37 volts and it withstands reverse voltage. In addition to regulating, it has a current monitor output, providing an analog output current proportional to the output of the regulator. Current limit can be adjusted with a single external resistor. A second monitor current is proportional to the chip temperature. This output can be used to monitor the health of the system, airflow, and is useful in debugging.
Unlike any other regulator, the LT3081 output capacitor is optional. It's stable with no output or input capacitor. The LT3081 can be used in areas where intrinsic safety is important or it can be used as a current source. Finally, it's adjustable down to zero volts, which means as the logic voltages go lower and lower, this will never be obsoleted.
Trading stocks typically have the lowest fees on eToro, which is one reason why I recommend you stick to this market when starting out.
All trades charge both a spread and daily rollover fees.
It really comes down to individual trading strategies and preference. But to give you an idea, I tend to hold on to stocks for a minimum of 6 months and all other trades tend to have an average duration of about two-three weeks.
A final word on over-trading.
This is a point that I want to expand on a little more, specifically in relation to copying other traders. Below is a screenshot of my equity chart over six months. The red line shows the number of people copying me.

The same holds true for the stock market in general.

How to Start Trading Cryptocurrencies.
Cryptocurrency trading can be extremely profitable if you know what you are doing, but it can also lead to disaster. Even though most traders decide to either go with fiat or bitcoin, other cryptocurrencies can represent viable income sources, as long you as you tread carefully and understand what you are doing. This guide is for those who want to start getting involved in cryptocurrency trading.
