why then risk, if the prospect in the future may not be. I would rather pay attention to more promising opportunities. At least he would have left the risk of losing his investment.

its true, dont take the trade, noone is telling u to do,... also investing is gamlbing, not so intensive, its more relaxed. and i agree we should treat margin as such in that way, lets try the relaxed ones...lol

Margin trading is risky and you shouldn't trade marginally with over %20 of your money. I lost a lot of money with margin trading, money I could have invested in bitcoin and it would become a lot more. I don't even want to think about how much I could have had if I never traded on margin.


I learned my lesson though. Especially be careful with shorting.

its even more risky if you are longing, and flash crashes happens. they happen more offen on the downside, and bitf. doesnt recover them. So lets try to play it safe if thats possible at all.

I assume you would do this on any exchange with high volume?  It seems like something that would work really well with coss.io if it starts to get enough trading volume with it's fee structure going down based on your trade volume.

no soory, it doesnt have/usd pairs, if to play against btc then its polo quite ok.. ...it would be way to nice if binance or polo could offer margin for /usd pairs., then we could really see year 2018 better then 2017...in terms of total market cap...LOL

lets do like a pros. I am not good at binance, it moves too fast, so in 99% i loose money, only 1 time i multiple it x7 with the ARN, and since then i am loosing there, so thos who think that at binance u cant loose u are wrong, evrywhere u can loose and win its all one big peculative buble.
so i took one more trade on margin.
Bought NEO/usd at 127
SL: 122
TP: 146
risk if SL hit: 1%
risk if liqudation level HIT: 10%

crypto is allready volatil. you shouldn't use margin to trade amounts you couldn't trade without it. it's usefull in order to leave less money on the exchange

I was writing more generaly. Since you seam to risk 1-4% of trading capital at stoploss, you actualy know what you are doing

I learned my lesson though. Especially be careful with shorting.
sometimes people like to play margin because maybe they have the capital to trade small, but with him playing the margin he can increase their capital so increase, maybe for traders who do not know the risk they will be happy because he got a big profit But they will regret it because of the price decline, and even they will lose all the assets they have.
