Surviving the Latest Bitcoin Dump

The cryptocurrency industry that emerged only 13 years ago has gained tremendous growth in a short time. Cryptocurrencies’ decentralized nature is one of the major reasons for their popularity and fast adoption among the masses. Bitcoin was the first cryptocurrency that was followed by many in the coming years. Now daily we see lots of new cryptocurrencies emerging in this space.

Bitcoin leads the cryptocurrency market has achieved a new all-time high value in the last month after gaining +1600% in a single year. The journey of BTC from 0 to 64.8k is not straightforward as it has seen many big drops from 30% to 85% in its short history. This time again it dropped about 51% from 64.8k to 30k in a span of about one month. Ethereum, the second top cryptocurrency that gained about 5000% in a single year also dropped 60% in a few days only. Many others made tremendous gains in the current year and are all more than 50% down now.

With the kind of gains cryptocurrencies bring this year, it looks too easy to get rich but most people fail to benefit from steep growth in the prices due to greed, emotions, biases, and logical fallacies. So here you will know how to survive the market dumps and take maximum benefit out of the market.

Discipline

Discipline is very necessary to be a successful trader. If you are intelligent you can be successful in several other fields but in crypto and Bitcoin trading being intelligent is not enough because there will be times when the market will go against you in spite of everything suggesting otherwise. When you make a plan you need to stick to your plan. It can make you a millionaire or it can bankrupt you as well. So be disciplined or start gambling.

Managing Expectations

If you want to stay profitable you should not expect anything good from the market and you need to enter every trade with minimal expectations while concentrating more on securing your existing capital. Having unrealistic expectations from every trade can not only cause you losses but can also decrease the ability to take profits from your trades. Always set profit targets before entering the trade and act accordingly.

Practice

Practice is another important characteristic of a trader. You can’t become a good trader overnight, the experience is making you a pro and it only comes by practice. You need to start with paper trading and should practice 100’s if not 1000’s of time. It will not only teach you the price action psychology of a market and will also find you various profitable setups that you can later use in your real trading.

Patience

You are not supposed to trade every move. If you have no patience you will be trading setups you are not confident of and will result in losing money. When you will be losing, your confidence will get shattered and you will develop a fear of losing which will result in not trading the setups that you should be trading. So be patient and only trade a setup that you are 100% confident of trading.

Follow facts

One of the main reasons for failure in trading is speculation. You should decide about taking a trade based on the data available currently but not by speculating the future. If you eliminate the “I think” and “I feel” elements from your trading, you will find yourself on the path of being a successful trader.

Trade Planning and Execution

Planning a Bitcoin trade (or any other crypto) and then its proper execution is the most important thing to gain and secure big profits. So having a detailed trading plan even before jumping into the market ensures that decisions are not made in the heat of the moment and you already know what you need to do in a particular situation.

  • Identify a trade: You need to plan to identify the entry price first. For that, you identify a trading opportunity by considering various bullish chart patterns, fundamentals analysis, or market sentiments. You need to develop clear SOP’s to enter a trade and follow them religiously.
  • Identify stop loss: Next most important thing is to plan the stop loss level in advance which can be below a horizontal or trend line support or below a fib level. A combination of many indicators will best give a strong stop loss level like if a fib level and support level are identified at the same point then a breakdown below that level is worth exiting from the trade. It will differ from trade to trade and also depends on the individual’s risk appetite.
  • Exit strategy: Identifying the exit point to book profits in advance is most important to secure your profits. You can identify more than one target but you need to stick to them and even should place orders in advance. Profit is never yours unless you book it. Greed plays an important role while booking profits. Traders tend to not book the profits by assuming that the price will keep moving further in their way but they might end up losing the trade. So, always identify the exit point in advance and never look back. Another strategy that you may use to secure your profits is to keep moving your SL level up with the growth in the price. Most of the exchanges provide the stop trailing option that can be used for this purpose.
