Trade Bitcoin the Right Way

Trade Bitcoin the Right Way

To say recent history has been an emotional roller-coaster for Bitcoin would be an understatement!

The market opened 2017 at a price of $966.0 and wrapped up the year at $18,960, carving out a whopping 1861.51% gain.

2018, however, has not been so kind. Deteriorating from its 2017 peak just south of the $20,000 mark to lows of $5858.6, the unit wiped approximately 70% off its value, as of current price.

It’s widely thought Satoshi Nakamoto was a pseudonym used by the unknown person(s) who designed Bitcoin. Despite the anonymity, the unit has since evolved into the most capitalized and traded cryptocurrency in the world. Current numbers demonstrate a market cap of over $143 billion. As of writing, 17,290,900 million bitcoins are in circulation, against a presently capped limit of 21 million.

know your Exit ! (or: never trade the Money)

714   September 21, 2017 14:22   SwingFish   Traders Library you should know  

Knowing where to exit is more important than knowing where to enter.

or in other words, Greed Kills ! as the market will tell you where it will likely to go, not your Profits/Losses!!

why? if you enter late, your position size will be smaller, because you will need a wider stop point (not really a big thing, just the reward is smaller, and the time the trade is “red” may be longer, nothing that can kill us, and in the end ist money being made.

but if you exit too late (or greed makes you stay in the trade),
especially in smaller timeframes, that can have Fatal results.

here is a typical Scenario in how to find an exit point.

Hedging 101 (Trading without a StopLoss)

Trading carries a huge risk for losses!
In fact, there is nobody in the world that trades who does not experience losses!
Our mission as traders is to limit the losses we incur so that we can protect our Equity.

As widely taught by educators, financial analysts, and other traders, the easiest way to protect ourselves from losses is to use a Stop-Loss order.

A stop-loss order will close your trade at a specific price set by you to limit the loss in case the trade becomes invalid.
