YOUR TRADING PLATFORM

The trading platform you choose will impact greatly to your success in the trading profession.

However, experienced traders use because of the above negative influence in some platform as reasons to signup with multiple trading platforms using the same credentials and wallets. What this implies is that, such trader can be trading in fie different websites using only one wallet of his crypto account. Though it will require some advance applications supports, constant online presence and lots more, the benefits however outweigh the stress.

Any of these documents will be required from you when activating trading and buying account in almost all the crypto trading platforms.

Some platform can request more than one document from you as a trader to be able to activate your account for trading and making of transactions while some will only require one document issued by the government and is still valid before allowing you to trade on their platform. Though the process is stressful, it is for your own security and the security of others by ensuring you are not giving fake identity thereby putting others at risk of making transactions with you.

  • If you are trading without knowledge of trends interpretations: trading trends reveals instant changes across the globe in each online trade.
