How to accumulate Crypto with SHORT strategies
If you're used to trading and accumulating profits in FIAT, maybe you're wondering how you can use automated trading to increase your Crypto balances.
Are you looking to accumulate more crypto assets while the market takes a downturn? With the recent launch of shorting capabilities on our platform, Vestinda empowers you to make the most of market fluctuations and enhance your crypto holdings. In this comprehensive guide, we'll walk you through the process of using short strategies on Vestinda to sell high, buy low, and accumulate more of your favorite cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin and Ethereum. Let's dive in!
Understanding Short Strategies
Short strategies enable traders to profit from falling crypto prices by selling the asset first (the ASK order) and then buying it back at a lower price. This is the opposite of traditional trading, where investors buy an asset at a lower price and sell it at a higher price. With shorting, you can capitalize on market corrections and potentially grow your crypto holdings even during bearish trends.

What balances do you need to hold in your wallet?
In order to accumulate Crypto using SHORT strategies you must hold Crypto assets in your wallet on the Exchange. For eg, if you want to accumulate Bitcoin, you must hold Bitcoin in your wallet so that the strategy can sell it at a higher price and buying it back at a lower price. This will increase your Bitcoin holdings.
How it works in practice
Let's walk through an example of how shorting works for 1 Bitcoin in your balance, assuming you sold it at $30,000 and bought it back at $25,000.
- Initial Position: You have 1 Bitcoin in your account. Instead of holding it, you decide to short 1 Bitcoin at $30,000, anticipating a price decrease.
- Selling Short: You initiate a short position by selling the 1 Bitcoin and you now have $30,000 in your wallet balance.
- Market Downturn: As expected, the market experiences a downturn, and the price of Bitcoin drops to $25,000.
- Buying Back at Lower Price: Now that the price has fallen to $25,000, your strategy buys back more Bitcoin at this lower price with the $30,000 you have in your wallet balance. You will now hold 1.2 Bitcoin. That's a 20% profit.
Congratulations! By shorting 1 Bitcoin, you made a profit of 20%. You now have more Bitcoin in your account than when you started, even though the market price decreased during the trade.
Please note that shorting can be risky, as the market can move in unexpected ways. It's crucial to implement risk management strategies like stop-loss orders to protect your capital and ensure responsible trading. Vestinda's automated platform enables you to easily execute short strategies with precision and discipline, giving you the advantage to profit from both rising and falling markets.
