Trading Psychology

Trading

This is an excerpt form the Book “How to not get REKT trading Crypto” which you can purchase here and on Amazon and other stores.

If you want to succeed in crypto currency trading, the first step is to take a good long look in the mirror.

Some of the most common influences affecting the success or failure of traders are psychological. Trading psychology is a way to describe the emotional component of your decision to invest. Realizing that success may take more personal effort than simply researching the currency before you invest, may make the prospect seem a little daunting. But there is a way to wield the psychology in your favor and knowing just how impactful your emotions can be is the first step.

The psychology of trading in practice.

Now that you know, you can use psychology to have a positive impact on your trading choices in practice. Which unhelpful emotions are you likely to experience whilst investing? Fear is probably the most common. Fear can prevent us from taking risks, move us to sell too early or convince us we will fail in the first place. Seeing your investments appear to lose money will not be easy, it could cloud your judgment and make you doubt your overall strategy. Conversely the excitement and joy of a successful currency investment might make you reckless. It could fill you with a false sense of confidence that will lead to impulsive trading. There will always be good times and bad times, you should be prepared to quit when your ahead. Another potentially dangerous emotion is greed. You may think that greed is a necessity for any trader, with glamorous Hollywood movies about greedy market traders informing our collective consciousness. Try to exchange greed for focus, there is no doubt that money is a massive motivation, but an unchecked appetite may lead to a lack of discipline. Focus on the big picture and use money as a motivation as you implement your strategy. Here’s three simple points to remember:

•          Do not be motivated by fear

•          Do not be overcome by euphoria

•          Do not be motivated by greed

Now we have seen a few negative examples of how emotions can affect trading, what are the positives? If you want to succeed at anything you need to have belief. Believe in yourself and your abilities. This may seem cliché or simple but if applied wholeheartedly it will have a powerful effect. Build a passion for what you do and inject it into each day. Organize yourself with an effectively researched and comprehensive game plan and commit to it fully. Having identified a few dangerous emotions, the next step is to get control of your thinking process. This takes positive action and energy. Positive self-talk is key, for starters tell yourself that you can master the psychology of currency trading. Build on your own personal values and integrity, commit to these as your foundation, a springboard to launch you forward every day. Take breaks and lead a healthy life, feed your brain with healthy food and inspirational material. Strengthen your body with exercise and spend time with your family and friends. It is often underestimated how essential these basic practices are, they will keep your mind agile and focused. Here’s four simple points to remember:

•          Do wholeheartedly believe in yourself

•          Do positively organize your thinking process

•          Do keep a healthy lifestyle routine

•          Do commit fully with personal integrity

Finally, be prepared for losses, inevitably not all investments will pan out for the best and this may be especially true for crypto currency investment. When that happens you may feel overwhelmed, but if you have put into practice these tips you will be able to ride that disappointment out with ease. Every failure is an opportunity to learn and exercise our mind, to strengthen it and continue towards success. Trading psychology is incredibly relevant to reaching that success.

“Financial peace isn’t the acquisition of stuff. It’s learning to live on less than you make, so you can give money back and have money to invest. You can’t win until you do this.”

Earni.fi : Find Unclaimed Airdrops

blank

I´ve stumbled across a nice little tool, which can scan your ethereum and bsc addresses for unclaimed airdrops. As you may know, some cryptocurrencies drop coins to already existing addresses. For instance the $UNI Airdrop was quite huge and the $FORTH Airdrop, too.

So if you in the cryptospace for a while, you surly have a bunch of ethereum addresses, to check the eligibility, just head to earni.fi and paste the address. Earni.fi will scan it for airdrops, NFTs and POAPS. Binance-smart-chain airdrops are included as well. But there is no free lunch 🙂 Earni.fi has a pricing model. Only “basic” airdrops are shown, basic airdrops are $UNI, $1INCH, $TORN, $COMBO, $CRV.

Premium airdrop screenshot

If you are eligible for a not-basic airdrop, earni.fi only tell you that your are eligble and not what kind of airdrop. So you have two options: Subscribe or find the unclaimed airdrop by yourself.

If you subscribe, you can claim your airdrop directly from earni.fi homepage (via metamask). I am a little bit paranoid and claimed my airdrop on its official claim page. As a subscriber you can monitor up ten addresses and will get notified, if new airdrops are in the database. Right now, it has about 98 airdrops in the database. And the monthly fee is $19.

blank

If you want to save money and don´t want subscribe, search for the airdrop via google or take a look at this etherscan page. My personal experience was like this: I found this tool via twitter, searched my computer for any ethereum addresses and tried each one. Luckily I had one hit, earni.fi told me, that I am eligible for an airdrop. Unfortunately it was not a basic airdrop, so it only told me that airdrop was worth $1400, so I tried to google it cause I did not want to subscribe. I have to admit, that it is quite hard to find the airdrop after I few attempts, I grabbed my calculator and came to the magnificent conclusion, that its worth to subscribe for 1 month ($1400 – $19 = $1381 profit). So I checked the homepage and the author, because I don´t want to sink my money into something scammy. The tool is made by DeFi Dawson (on twitter @DawsonBotsford) and I subscribed via CC and erni.fi immediately told me, that it was the $FORTH airdrop. So head over to the $ampleforth claimpage and claimed it. After that I canceled my subscription because 19$ a month is a little but too much for this kind of service. So check your addresses, maybe you have some luck and get an airdrop.

Smart Strategies for a Bear Market

As I wrote in this article, the bitcoin dominance is at a three-year low. This could (!) be sign of a beginning bear market and the market looks very red right now. I want to share some trading strategies for the bear market. These strategies have to fit to your personal risk awareness and long-term strategy.

Bear Trading

If you just stood on the sideline of the cryptomarkets, maybe this could be a good starting point to acquire your first bitcoin. Nobody has a crystal ball and the markets could continue to fall. So,I highly suggest to use the DCA strategy to invest, which means you split your invest. If you want to invest 1000$, split it to ten invests of 100$ each over a period of 10 weeks. For a beginner relai.ch is good service for buying bitcoin, it has higher fees but you don’t need to a full KYC, it´s very easy to use. Unfortunately, it is only available in Europe.

I know some people would kill me for the following statement but I am not a big fan of holding coins to death. I don’t talk about bitcoin, I dare to touch my btc stack but I would sell all of my other coins. Nobody lost money from taking profit. I came into the crypto 2017 and I kept all of my positions during the bear market and it is not fun. A lot of coins are still >90% down. So, don’t be afraid to sell your coins. You can use the DCA strategy for selling as well, especially if you´re not sure what to do. For instance, if you’re 200$ up and do not know what to do, just sell coins for 100$. It does not hurt. But like I mentioned earlier, it all depends on your long-term strategy, I know some people who don’t care about fiat gains, they only care about to have more satoshis. I don’t want to spread fud but this could only be the beginning of a bear market. When you sitting on a huge altcoin bag, it´s not the best decision to hold because you’re 20% down. In a real bearmarket your bags will be down up to 90%.


Binance

Another suitable but highly risky strategy is to short the markets. I use binance future perpetuals, binance has the biggest liquidity and, that’s important, offers you the ability to test your shorting strategy with a test account. I used the last months to get familiar with the interface and to get a feeling of entry points and stop losses. I personally use a leverage up to 15% and very tight SL. But to be clear, this is a high risk strategy you have to have some experience with trading. You can find various in depth tutorials on youtube.

If you totally convinced in bitcoin and crypto, you can also get a job. What I mean by that? Well, acquire fiat and invest it. Sell some stuff on ebay or craiglist and put that money into crypto. The winners of the next bullrun are made in the previous bear market. Like stated above, I came in 2017 and invested every month, it´s not easy to put money into an asset which is constantly going down and a lot of my friends thought I am crazy but at the end I had a very low btc acquisition price. But take your time, you don’t have to be fast. Acquire money and wait till the markets go sideways and then invest.

At the bottom line I want to close this article with a quote from the Book “How to Not Get Rekt Trading Crypto”:

“Bull markets are fun and ecstatic. However, they last for a short time and they do not really teach you anything as a trader. Bullish trading environments give you a false sense of skillfulness that only long-term traders have. Nothing really beats a bear market. They give you more time to learn and have a more realistic price movement. Bulls often trade on speculative value alone. However, bear markets tend to be all about fundamental value and what a project really offers. On that account, the next time you become sad that bitcoin entered a bear market, do not be! You have just received even more time to become a true professional and accumulate some satoshis.”
