Gunbot-Kraken Futures | Spot versus Futures what You Should Know

CRYPTOWALLY - (GUNBOT UNIVERSITY) So Trashdog, what would y...

CRYPTOWALLY - (GUNBOT UNIVERSITY)
So Trashdog, what would you say on that the same vein of you know spot versus futures
what someone might need to know but when they're getting into futures.

TRASHDOG - (GUNBOT TRADER)
Literally uh just touching on some of the points beforehand was
that with spot it is a case of trading one asset for another so
in the event that you turn around and do actually have a bad trade
you're still left holding an asset but uh on futures
um it does uh there is a lot more uh magnification when it comes to risk
versus uh risk versus reward because like kevin did say yeah sure you can
turn around and um you can turn around and make a good buck
but the problem is if you end up with a bad trade and you don't
have uh proper uh exit strategy for a bad trade whether you use stops or
anything else like that uh you can lose your entire position so
you'll end up with nothing you'll have nothing left in your hand
so a lot of the times when it comes to setting people's expectations when they
move across from spot to margin is uh you know you're trading on a new
platform so you've got to start small and
actually have your exit strategies for for a bad trade because if you don't
have those then you're going to run into all sorts of strife.

CRYPTOWALLY - (GUNBOT UNIVERSITY)
Anon, what do you say of that?.

ANON - (GUNBOT TRADER)
