Better trading strategy

In trading crypto, there are two strategies that can be used: counter-trend and follow the trend. The two strategies have differences that can be used to adjust to market conditions. So as a trader there is no need to choose one of them. But before determining the right strategy you also have to do technical analysis and fundamental analysis.

Choosing a trading strategy can be seen from the market trend. When the market is experiencing a trend change in the near future, it is suitable for traders to take advantage of a counter-trend strategy. On the other hand, if the market is running continuously or in a breakout condition without a reversal, it is better for traders to use a trend following a strategy to follow market movements.

The decision to follow the market or fight the market is very necessary to pay attention to the right timing. By learning the right time to use a counter trend or follow a trend strategy, you can make transactions safe from floating. It can be concluded that the best strategy is to adjust market conditions.
