Investing in cryptocurrency is associated with great risk, primarily because digital assets are highly volatile. However, this is far from the only reason that can lead to losses. Despite its many advantages, digital money has a number of disadvantages. There are other nuances to consider before purchasing digital coins.

2) Inability to determine right moment in the market

Before buying a cryptocurrency, first, you should understand what it is for: it is a long-term investment or a tool for speculation. The point of entry into the asset and the strategy of market behavior will depend on this.

The secret of successful trading in the market lies in the correct determination of the moment when it is better to buy an asset and when it is better to sell it. It is important to think in advance how to act in the event of a sharp collapse or rise in the price of a cryptocurrency.

In case of drawdowns in quotes, traders succumb to emotions and can act impulsively, therefore, you should decide in advance on the reaction to emergencies, having designated for yourself the levels of profit or loss fixation.
