As of February 21st, 2021, Bitcoin had a market capitalization of $1072.21 billion. The global blockchain market is expected to be worth $23.3 billion by 2023. If you want to become a trader, here are some insider tips you must apply in order to be successful.

1. Have a Motive for Each Trade

It’s important to have a clear purpose for getting into cryptocurrency trading. You must realize that for every win, there is a corresponding loss: when someone wins, someone else loses. Successful traders have patience; they wait for novice traders to make a single mistake and quickly grab the chance to make huge profits.

Sometimes you’re better off not making anything on certain trades than making huge losses. On certain days or periods, the only way to stay profitable is by keeping off some trades.

2. Know the Peak Times

Crypto markets usually have peak trading hours: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the local time. During this period, there’s a high trade volume in each region. A market may be “closed,” but there may be huge movements in the global market that affect it, depending on speculations and news. Sometimes, you may have to trade early in the morning after a long night so as to outsmart the competition, and a hangover patch can help.

3. Set Profit Targets

It’s important to know when to start trading and when to stop, whether you’re making a profit or not. Establish a clear stop loss level so you know when to cut your losses. This is the only way you’ll succeed in the industry. A Stop-loss order is an advance order to sell an item when it reaches a particular price point. Many traders use the order to limit loss and gain in a trade. When the crypto reaches a set bid price, an order is executed automatically to purchase or sell it.

When setting a stop loss level, don’t be carried away by your emotions. For instance, if you plan to get out of the market after hitting a certain profit; stick to it. If you get greedy, there are seasoned investors waiting to take advantage of your greed.

4. Manage Your Risks

Wise traders never run after massive profits. They stay put and gather small profits from regular trades. Invest more of your portfolio in a less-liquid market. Practice position sizing if you want to be successful. Position sizing determines how many cryptocurrency coins or tokens you’re willing to buy. You may be tempted to invest 75% or 100% of your trading capital, but this move will put you at serious financial risk. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.

So, if you want to become a successful crypto trader, choose the right platforms, practise position trading, and set profit targets. Becoming a trader is an easy task, but achieving positive results requires attention and knowledge. Use our tips to succeed.
