My 5 cents….
Don’t chase the group.
After buying and selling choices premium for almost 5 years earlier than entering into crypto, a number of methodologies have served me properly in each markets.
One of many beliefs, close to and expensive to my buying and selling technique, is taking the contrarian view. The contrarian view is buying and selling the other facet of the group. It’s a easy philosophy. Quick when markets are up and stuffed with hype. And when markets are down, search for alternatives to dollar-cost-average. The worry and greed index is a good software for it.
Its simplicity helps me keep away from the FOMO and hype that’s ever-present in crypto. (Though I nonetheless fall sufferer now and again.)
Usually, monetary markets are unpredictable in brief durations. Add excessive volatility and crypto is without doubt one of the hardest to commerce.
Furthermore, many retail merchants simply randomly purchase belongings they heard about on Twitter. Which leads me to my subsequent level that following crowds is often counterproductive, particularly for those who’re late within the pattern. Particularly in crypto.
In comes the contrarian view. Many instances, opposing the group can assist you construct self-discipline whilst you anticipate the proper time to enter a commerce.
