How to maximize profit with Trailing Stop Loss?


A Trailing Stop Loss is a modification of a typical stop order that can be set at a defined percentage or dollar amount away from a security's current market price. For a long position, an investor places a trailing stop loss below the current market price. For a short position, an investor places the trailing stop above the current market price.

A trailing stop is designed to protect gains by enabling a trade to remain open and continue to profit as long as the price is moving in the investor’s favor. The order closes the trad

Now understand Trailing Stop loss with an example. 

Assume you bought a coin at the price of 100 and put the trailing stop loss at 90 (10 points below the buying price).

If the price drops to 90 then your stop loss will be activated and the trade is closed with a 10% loss. 

But if the price of the coin increase to 130 then the trailing stop loss automatically shifts to 120 (means 10 points below the current price). If the price drops to 120 then the trade is closed automatically (the 120 trailing stop loss will be activated), If the price continues to increase the trailing stop also increase with it and remains always 10 points below the current price. You need to do it manually. 

Currently, Binance only supports trailing stop loss for the Futures market but sooner we will see the feature for spot trading also.

Seigniorage or Algorithmic StableCoins is the stable coins that are designed to Expand or Contract their supply according to the Demand & Supply of the market. 

Before getting into Algo Stablecoins, let's understand what are stablecoins in short, 

Stablecoins are acting the same as a fiat currency in Crypto Space, you can say it a Fiat Currency of Crypto Space in Digital Form. These coins are generally backed by the Fiat Currency of the particular country like (USDT by Dollars) or other Cryptocurrencies or Some Precious Metals. 

USDT (Tether) is one of the most popular Stablecoin in #Crypto Space, One unit of a #Stablecoin equals $1.

Algo-StableCoins method uses ‘Smart Contracts’ that automatically expand and contract the supply using algorithms to maintain value.

Said StableCoin has a $1 value. The price drops to $0.80, indicating the supply of StableCoins is higher than the demand. The algorithm uses seigniorage to buy ‘said’ StableCoin, thereby decreasing supply and pushing the price back to $1.

Users are essentially investing in the coins. When said StableCoin trades above $1, the algorithm issues additional tokens increasing supply until the price returns to $1.
