Options help traders benefit from the movement of market price.

 

Market timing is difficult

When you see a trading opportunity, the price may not go to your direction, for the next week or immediately .For cash traders, they keep a stop loss which can get taken out.Options allow you to hold your positions for weeks and months, without a stop loss.The cost of the options is deducted from profits, if trade fails you lose the cost of the options.

 

What Happens When You Try to Time the Market?

 

I can show you hundreds of examples why market timing screws up trades.

I have seen an opportunity on eur usd .I have purchased the 11900 put expiring on the 19 th January.I have 10 days to be right , if price ends up higher I will lose.Options can reduce short term psychological handicap of the human mind in trading.

 

In my previous opportunity, My position was taken out twice, now the price has broken down.Trading without an option has resulted in losses, if I had bought an option, it is possible I might be  in profit on that opportunity.

 

Here is the previous opportunity

I am independent trader .

 

Here is benefit of options , if price goes against , I know my risk.Here in the image, the big bar would have knocked my stops.

 

Successful traders manage risk, you can control how much you can lose.

 

Professionals manage risk

Professionals focus on limiting risk and protecting their capital. Amateurs focus on how much money they can make.

    • How Merlin Is Addressing Bitcoin Scalability With A Unique Layer 2 Approach If you've been around the crypto world for a while, you're likely familiar with the limitations of Bitcoin's Layer 1 and its scalability issues. Over time, we've seen various innovative proposals like Wormhole's unique approach to address these limitations. In this context, Merlin Chain caught my attention. It's a project that aims to tackle Bitcoin's scalability challenges by offering a Layer 2 solution built on the ZK-Rollups model. This translates to faster and cheaper transactions while maintaining security through a decentralized oracle network with anti-fraud measures. Developed by the well-established Bitmap Tech team, Merlin Chain boasts a market cap exceeding $500 million. Their key objective has always been to empower existing Bitcoin assets by enabling them to interact seamlessly on the Layer 2 network. I believe backing from 20+ prominent VC firms like OKX Ventures and ViaBTC suggests confidence in Merlin Chain's future. MERL was launched as the first token on Bitget's pre-market trade platform and had a commendable price action. Is Merlin Chain's Layer 2 solution a long-term solution to this issue? Let's hear your candid opinions in the comments section below! Cheers! #Bitcoin #btc #halving #transactions #merlin #merl #bitget #web3 #wormhole
    • As the crypto sector undergoes transformation, Asia emerges as a formidable player alongside the established giants of the US and Europe. With significant investments and a growing user base, the region's potential for dominance is unmistakable. Leading this movement is Dubai, pioneering crypto adoption with its favorable regulations, attracting crypto exchanges focused on the region. A standout in this field is Bitget, Asia's largest web3 wallet provider, boasting a user base of over 19 million. Through regular events, Bitget cultivates community engagement, recognizing and rewarding the trust and loyalty of its users. One such event, the ongoing "Bitget Super Savings," offers over $20,000 worth of hot tokens across various categories, providing users with an opportunity to enrich their crypto portfolios. For those in South Asia, Bitget extends an invitation to participate in this ongoing event. Seize the chance to earn free hot tokens before the event concludes on April 26th. Good luck!
    • It is ideal that crypto currency exchanges as the admisnistrators of users’ funds should account to them from time to time through transparency reports that can be drafted atleast at the end of every quarter.  Platforms like Bitget have dropped theirs and their growth is pretty impressive. Both spot and derivative volume have grown exponentially. This is a testament to the fact that the team has been doing the good work. In Q1 of 2024, the CEX’s spot trading volume increased by a whopping 113% peaking about $160 billion and the futures trading volume was at about $1.4 trillion signalling a 146% increase.  In march, the platform witnessed the most remarkable growth thus far in the derivative market making it the 3rd largest derivative trading platform for the first time since december 2022.  The user base has also trumped up from the previous 20 million to 25 million users globally.  This demonstrates pure positive social sentiment and traction. In a similar vein, through the course of the previous quarter, the platform added about 186 new tokens, this has placed its number of tokens at 750+ tokens available and 820+ spot tokens.  Most of the listings were relatively very early and some investors made fortunes off it. The launchpool has also witnessed impressive growth, a total of 7 launchpools were done and this led to an increased demand for its native token $BGB. $Bgb has been on steroids since the last quarter, breaking ATHs and establishing new ones. Bitget applauds consistency and security, its Proof of reserve has also grown to about $612 million since March. With this type of security framework users confidence will be instilled to further use Bitget. Here's some proof of the above; https://twitter.com/TokenInsight/status/1767010819282526267
