What not to do

In this case for beginners, it is better to familiarize yourself with the experiences of others in advance to avoid unnecessary losses. To do this, we have prepared some rules that every novice user should follow.

Don't buy cryptocurrency on the news. As a rule, if the user finds out about some news that is supposed to lead to an increase in the price of the coin, then this probably already happened. If you buy it, be sure to use a stop loss order. This is an offer to sell a coin for a certain price. 

Do not be greedy. If you manage to buy bitcoin for $9000, after that the price goes higher, it's safer to sell some coins, and put the rest on a stop loss.

Be careful or don't trust other people's signals to buy and sell assets. Currently, there are many channels on Telegram and other social networks that publish cryptocurrency predictions. Their authors are not responsible for their customers' money.

Don't give capital to anyone, especially strangers, for trust management. And if you do this, then only with the conclusion of the contract approved by a notary. This practice has been popular in the crypto world for several years and often has a negative impact on inexperienced traders.

Don't give in to emotions. Most losing trades occur precisely because of a loss of control.

Do not trade with the last of the money, much less with borrowed money. Making money in the cryptocurrency market is difficult, but for novice traders it is almost impossible. For this reason, you should invest only funds that you don't mind losing. 

Always have funds on hand if the price of the asset drops below the level when you bought it.

Don't neglect training. Trading in the cryptocurrency market is not a casino, but hard work and nervousness. It can take years to understand how asset prices behave in certain situations.

Record your trades. This will help evaluate and improve trading strategies, as well as identify errors which are made.

Learn not to lose and recognize losses. If you're not sure about the deal, it's safer to close it and wait for another good moment. It's better to donate a small amount of capital to the market than to be stuck in a bitcoin bought for $20,000 for several years and lose the opportunity To buy for less than $ 3,900 twice.

The cryptocurrency market hates games of luck. Here the traders compete: retail and wholesale. Some take wins, others leave the market empty-handed, and sometimes with debt. Therefore, you need to take digital asset trading seriously, calculating each step and thinking about the possible negative consequences.
