HOW TO TRADE CRYPTOCURRENCIES

The idea of trading digital currency is similar to the foreign exchange trading, meaning you can always buy a digital currency against another digital currency or in the realm of cryptocurrencies buy the currency itself and hold it. For example, if your trade EUR/USD and you want to buy the EUR, meaning that you are buying Euro and you sell US Dollar. In digital currency there is for example the pair of ETH/BTC (Ethereum/Bitcoin). If you want to buy Bitcoin, you need to do a short action: you buy Bitcoin and you sell Ethereum.

The rate of the pair is derived from the price of both assets. if Ethereum is worth 2,000 $ and Bitcoin is worth 40,000 $, so the formula will be price of Ethereum/price of Bitcoin = the rate price of this pair.

2000/40000 = 0.05

UNDERSTANDING LEVERAGE

Leverage is a buying power that you receive from your broker on the funds that you have in the account, there are different levels of leverage that can range from 2 to 50 times the money you have in the account. This gives you additional backing when you are in a strongly indicated market.

HOW LEVERAGE HELPS YOU?

If you start an investment account with 1,000 $ your account will be worth 0.025 BTC because Bitcoin is worth 40,000 $. So basically, you can’t buy 1 Bitcoin because it’s worth more than what you have. So therefore, you have leverage. Let’s say for example you have a leverage of 40, your account is now capable to buy 1 Bitcoin because your investment multiplied by 40 Leverage equals 40,000 $.

Now you can trade on more assets and increase your profits and achieve more returns on your money. However, your account will be with more deviation and you should consider your trades more carefully since it can be used as a double sword.

When your account has been activated and you have been connected to your account manager, he/she will be able to provide you with all the tools necessary and different trading techniques to suit your needs.

  • Analytical Trading – Trading purely off of asset analysis (no fundamentals)
  • Fundamental Trading – Information trading which is based solely on release of information.
  • Auto Trading – AI, Robotic trading that trades for you.
