About this course

Successful crypto trading isn’t about making incredible returns every time you open a position.

It’s about managing to stay in the game day in, day out, without taking on unnecessary losses.

That’s how you make incredible returns. Not by lucking out on single trades, but by having a smart strategy that stacks the odds in your favor.

In this video, we’ll explain why risk management is arguably the most important skill in crypto trading; go over basic risk management concepts; teach you a few simple formulas you’ll use often as a trader.

We’ll start by covering why risk management is so necessary.
