Trading on leverage/margin is good if you win but bad if you loose. Dependant on your appetite for risk.

Margin trading is a double edged sword. You can profit if you get the trade going as you expected it to. If not, then you're in neck deep trouble. IMO, it's better not to use margin trading unless you really know what you're doing and don't let greed get the best out of you. You'll end up paying a higher price if you can't control your greed.

Margin Trading is bad in Crypto and bad in Stocks.
You can't be a winner at Margin trading unless you have inside information , which makes it insider trading and illegal in the US.
you dont know what you're talking about...

When you Margin Trade and it goes the other way you can end up owning many times more than the Value of what you Borrowed.
That is how people lose their Homes and everything they own.


a trader who doesnt know what is a stop loss isnt a trader... dont mistake gamblers with traders (doesnt matter if you are in stocks/forex/commodities/crypto, if you dont know how it works, you're gambling).

margin is ok, but you need to learn a few basic things before you start or you will end up losing everything.

The stop loss is very important in the margin trading. If you do not exit when the loss builds up, you will lose a lot.

OMG, I am on Polo all the time and have even looked at the margin trading without the obvious kicking in.  Who covers these margins on anonymous accounts?  Setting up multiple accounts is illegal if used to defraud, but there are those that do not care.  And I can picture a new person losing big and against a margin and simply not being able to ever fix it.  I really gotta look at this more, lol.  Margins on my FIAT stock sites are based on factors.  I assume that they do a credit check during the first few days after sign up and know exactly what margin they are giving a person.  But that is not possible on Polo.  I guess everyone gets the same margins or maybe aged accounts get more.  

I just never thought past simply seeing the options, lol.  Imagine my friend asking to borrow ten bucks, ok I know him, no problem.  But when "account number 0052266" appears wanting a loan, lol, wow, amazing.

it's not how it works there... you need a collateral to do margin... you cant lose what you dont have because your margin will be ended by the system after you lose 80% of your colateral. it isnt credit.

Margin trading using any type of funds is BAD BAD BAD.  Why trade with money you don't have??  Leverage is BAD BAD BAD.  Just don't do it.  Trust me, I have experience and here's how my experience went.

Hit it big margin trading, but greed makes you want to leverage more..and in the end, lost it all and MORE!  Cuz that first time you did so well, kinda makes you want to keep chasing it.

well, then they should call it something different, lol.  i think in stocks that is something like equity trading, lol.  I was peeking more at it too, it looks like other users are covering the margins in some cases, as loans

There are a lot of terms being tossed around, lol.  What the OP linked to is a pretty standard model of margin trading, or trading against an amount that is not actually owned by the trader.  This is actually a pretty crazy thing to do with crypto, for the site, not the trader.  When I was young I had a Nintendo and a casino game, I think “Caesars Palace”, now bear with me, this relates.

Margin trading for coins can help increase their volume and liquidity which can be very good.

Stop-loss? Hell, most exchanges are set up in such a way that this is pretty easy without special interfaces.  After the initial buy, some exchanges let you set up a sell trade with a bottom limit, meaning that the trade only fires at the price or below, rather than simply dumping your new assets at a scary low price and sitting slack jawed after it happens.

I think margin trading is certainly bad for alt currency. crypto currency is volatile even without leverage, with the added option of leverage it makes the swing even more dramatic which makes it usability as a currency even more difficult.

when ever there is a Bitcoin or ether reversal some exchanges conveniently shut down for maintainence or the currency in question mysteriously vanishes from exchanges.


In my Opinion is it much better if we don't use margin trading because for me margins are too bad in crpto currenies  and also it is bad on the stocks We can't earn that easily on margins unless you already had knowledge on what you are going to do if you really want to earn more profit then make some way.

AS far as i know margin is something that would exit your position if its on the bear trend, not much different to the stop loss. But i would rather want both out of the crypto trading for what would its use be if someone wants to hold a coin for as long as he wants.

Bittrex apparently has a very basic trade bot that can do this.  I would never tell someone to use a bot for trading, but you can use their bot to set an auto sell at low and high limits.  This is a nice way to be able to sleep at night without worrying that the new coin went from 5000 Sat to 1 overnight.

It's just similar to margin trading in traditional stock markets. Nothing too bad about it. It just provides liquidity of the markets.

My rule is to have 60% to cover and not to leave it unattended the markets move to fast and only use it on a high volume coin. But it is risky and is definitely gambling. Cheesy
