3. Determine the type of Trader you wish to be and stick to it: To be successful in Cryptocurrency trading, You need to consider the type of trader you wish to become based on your personality and the amount of time you can spare on analysing the charts, your level of patience, and your capital. For instance; You can decide to be;     a. A scalper if you can spare long hours looking at the chart and also have a high level of patience. If you have a job, being a scalper might be hard for you.

  b. A Day trader is like a balance between scalpers and swing traders. As a day trader, You try to analyze and take a trade. i.e., One trade/day.

 c. A Swing Trader, if you can have the patience to hold your trade for days, If you can’t monitor your charts every minute, Then you can try Swing trading out.

4. Set Realistic Trading goals: The problem with most Cryptocurrency traders is Greediness. They want to turn $100 to $1m overnight and start dreaming of buying houses and buying a Porsche. Trading crypto like that is the wrong mindset to approach trading instead set a goal maybe you want to earn 10%-20% from your trade per month, per week, or per day, depending on the type of trader you are. Making 10% or 20% of $100,000 isn’t bad but make sure you have a realistic goal when trading and stick to it. Trading should not be done that way, Trading is like a marathon and not some 100m race.


5. Practice: You can’t keep watching Youtube videos and reading articles upon articles without practicing what you have learned.

7. Trading Psychology/Emotions: Greed, Fear, and Gut feeling are three terrible things that can becloud your thinking when taking trades. Be calm and calculative when taking your trades would help you in becoming a successful crypto trader. Believe your trading plan more than your gut feelings, and stick to it. I know it is hard to overcome your fears, greed, and especially your gut feelings, but being calm, calculative, practicing, and better understanding of trading will help you overcome these things.
