The further the crypto markets continue to run higher, the greater the risk that another major correction or worse, a market crash will happen.

Over the course of the past month we’ve witnessed coins dropping as close to 30-50% their worth. So, how do you protect your coin portfolio in a down market?

Crashes can happen very fast

  • This is not the stock market, an entire market can crash in a matter of minutes.
  • It is important to have your stop losses set according to your trading strategy.
  • Having cash in a down market allows you to be more aggressive after the crash has recovered.

Trading the news

  • Since crypto is such a new and volatile market, the economy tends to react harshly to any sort of negative news.
  • This past month, crypto was dealt with two punches: China’s government banning ICOs and JPMorgan’s CEO calling Bitcoin a ‘fraud’.
  • These events that can cause a coins price to move wildly up or down.
  • At press time, the market is looking to bounce back off of that drop and will almost recover completely.
