Day Trading Courses for Cryptocurrency Traders

Posted on

Doesn’t it feel like everybody is going day trading today? Sure, this certainly depends a lot on successful day traders never talking about anything else. They are very similar to vegans and cross-fitters in that sense. And in contrast, unsuccessful day traders tend to be quiet about their adventures. But like it or not, day trading is here to stay. These are 6 basic rules that some say are the rules you need to follow in order to be a successful day trader.

Rule 1 – Know when to stop

This might be the most important rule of them all. You need to know when it’s time for you to stop. People who are “high on wins” or frustrated due to losses never tend to make the best decisions. You need to know when you are – for any reason – not yourself and risk making foolish decisions. Learn thyself, and learn thy limits…

Rule 2 – Use Stop Loss Limits

Speaking of limits, you must always set stop-loss limits. Sure, making a loss at all wasn’t your plan and in the best of worlds the position you took will be profitable. But there’s also a chance that it will only get worse. Therefore, set stop limits so that you will never lose more than a predefined sum of money on the particular position.

Rule 3 – Only Risk What You Can Afford to Lose

This rule is quite self-explanatory. And it also ties in to rule number 1. If you have more at stake than what you can afford to lose, there’s a much higher risk that you will “lose your cool” and not be able to know when to stop. Also, if you have risked more than you can afford to lose and you have bet on the wrong horse (it can happen the best of us), oh boy…

Rule 4 – Use Technology at Hand

It is not necessarily so that the side of a war that has the best weapons will always win. However, superior weapons make it more likely that they will win. The same rule applies for day traders. If you have more advanced charting tools or other software products that are technologically superior to those of your fellow traders, and you know how to use them, this gives you an advantage in the market.

Rule 5 – Trade Like It’s Your Business – It is!

This rule could also be rephrased as “treat like a proper job”. If you treat it like a hobby, you are not giving it proper attention. Sure, you can make a few wins from day trading as a hobby as well, but if you want to be really successful, you need to take it more seriously. Think of it as an activity which has labour costs, other capital expenditures, taxes, investments, and – hopefully – profits, and you will have the right mindset.

Rule 6 – Never Stop Studying the Markets

Cryptocurrency markets are like excel. The more you learn, the more you understand that you are not (and will never be) fully-taught. Never stop learning, and always improve your knowledge base.

  1. Does that scare you? It should. If you’re executing trades left and right, the 80-20 rule can start to work against you. The remaining 80 percent of your trades are likely to result in losses that your 20 percent can’t cover.

  2. Let’s say you open a margin account with a broker and deposit $10,000. On the first day, a Monday, you buy and sell leveraged shares of stock XYZ. On Tuesday, you buy and sell stock ABC, and on Wednesday, you short-sell stock DEF. Thursday comes around and you buy and sell shares of both ABC and XYZ. That’s five trades in four days, which means that you’ve met the criteria for the pattern day trader rule.
