Hi Walbi Academy students! Last week, we started teaching you about proven cryptocurrency trading strategies. We covered a lot of the basics in that article but now, we are going to level up a bit and learn about advanced cryptocurrency trading strategies.
Advanced Cryptocurrency Trading Strategies
The strategies outlined above are more beginner-friendly, as they don’t require complex planning or knowledge to get started. Let’s explore some of the strategies that require a deeper understanding of relevant technology and market movements.
Algorithmic trading relies on quantitative research and data. This can include technical indicators but also employs more advanced programming technology. It seeks to turn a profit at a faster speed by using a coded program to place trades. The program runs on a basis of very specific terms and conditions so that it only places highly profitable and less risky trades. It might look for arbitrage openings, price trends, and trading volume.
While this is an advanced strategy, don’t think that means a beginner can’t try it. Walbi is developing advanced AI trading algorithms that will provide accurate market insights. With these integrated features, even novices can make expert trades.
Copy trading can seem very complicated, but is more doable for beginners. Once you understand how to safely execute this strategy, you can conduct high-level trades with less risk. Copy trading involves finding skilled, expert traders and copying their moves. Think of it like watching a Michelin star chef cook a complicated dish, and re-enacting the steps.
With the right copy trading platform, traders can even set up their accounts to mimic another person’s moves automatically. Some crypto experts even market themselves as lead traders and are paid a small fee to allow others to copy them.
Social trading is somewhat similar, in that it involves a community of traders coming together to share insights and plans. Two minds are better than one - but what if you had an entire group giving you feedback and recommendations? With social trading, beginners can rely on their more experienced peers to help guide them. However, taking advice from multiple people can become confusing.
Paper trading is simulated, and allows traders to gain exposure and experience before using real money. The trader will keep track of all their exchanges and the related price movements by writing them on paper. Of course, you can also use digital documents to record your trades. You can carefully analyze your moves, take notes, and summarize what you might do differently.
Other Proven Cryptocurrency Trading Strategies
We’ve listed many types of trading strategies, but there are even more to learn about. Some of these include:
- HODL: An intentional misspelling of “hold”. When HODLing, traders keep their crypto for years without touching it. By waiting out price fluctuations, they can gain more value as prices slowly increase.
- High-frequency trading: Often supplemented by AI bots. This type of algorithmic trading is popular with quant traders, who work for trading firms.
- Dollar-cost averaging: Traders invest a fixed amount into a cryptocurrency at regular intervals. By doing this, traders can avoid timing the market and pre-planning their entry points.
- Trading in crypto future: A contract that bets on the future performance of an asset. This trading allows investors to gain exposure to a cryptocurrency, without actually buying it outright.
