Why Trade Cryptocurrencies?

May 15, 2020

New Opportunities – Cryptocurrency trading is still relatively new, and new coins are becoming mainstream every day. With all this newness comes unpredictable swings in both volatility and price, which can create opportunities for both big gains and big losses.

24/7 Trading – Unlike most other trading markets, cryptocurrency trading is a constant 24/7. This results in fewer and smaller price gaps that can adversely affect your positions, and surprise news events can be traded as they happen.

No Pattern Day Trading Rule – Traders with accounts less than $25,000 can take solace in the fact that there is no pattern day trading rule.

Volatility – Traders can only make money in the markets if there is movement. Crypto currencies on average are much more volatile than traditional markets.
