Сhief Product Officer at CEX.IO: 5 Steps to Upskill Yourself as a Trader

ForkLog (English) (about 5 hours ago)

It is every trader’s dream to get to the top of the trading game. At the top, the returns on investment are much better, while the trading itself is less overwhelming. Once you get a good grip on how to trade, it becomes an everyday joy to make money from it. It is especially true for the Bitcoin market, where the price of BTC changes rapidly, making room for profitable trading. But how exactly can you get there? What is it that the top traders do differently to enjoy massive success in their trading? In her exclusive op-ed for, CEX.IO Chief Product Officer Alona Dobshynska shares her advice to newbie and experienced traders. How to Become a Better Trader Trading, be it crypto trading or Forex trading, is a very dynamic industry, which changes by the day. The strategies that worked a few years ago, might not necessarily work today. For instance, a few years ago, cryptocurrencies were not part of trading activities. This, therefore, calls for constant upskilling to stay in the loop. If you want to always stay ahead in the game, then here are five simple steps to help you upskill your trading. Step 1: Redefine Your Ambitions Your ambitions in the trading game will dictate your strategy and end game. Ask yourself these questions: ‘What do I want to achieve from this trading?’, ‘How much am I willing to commit to trading?’, ‘Will I take up trading as a profession or as a side hustle?’ Once you have an idea of what you really want to achieve from trading, you can then work out a plan on how to increase your chances of achieving your goals. A lot of traders enter the game blindly without a plan. As such, they can’t tell if they are making any progress in their daily trades. Lay down a marker on what you want to achieve and how long you think it will take you to get there. This will make the next steps of upskilling your trading much easier and more feasible. Step 2: Choose An Execution Plan So, you know where you want to be in ‘X’ years. How are you planning to get there? What trading style will you adopt? How much finance do you have at your disposal to commit to trading? What trading platforms and brokers will you be using? There are many trading techniques in the modern-day trading industry. Your choice will be determined by your ambitions as each comes with its own risk profile. You ideally want a technique whose risk profile is close to your original plan’s risk range. It is imperative to take time and study your trading technique and make sure that it fits your trading ambitions. Although there is no trading strategy that guarantees profits, some of the best techniques in the market almost always have a positive income when the trader executes them to perfection. So again, take some time to study a technique before choosing it. You will need to stick to it through thick and thin, and you’d better choose a technique worth sacrificing for. You should also choose a trading platform that suits your needs. Fortunately, there are many venues—exchanges, professional trading platforms, and even forex markets that support cryptocurrency. Go through the platform’s features to make sure it accommodates scalability in the event of growth before settling on it. Step 3: Start Small, Remain Disciplined Once you have decided on the platform, it’s time to focus on trading. If you are new in the industry, it is advisable to start small. No matter how much you have at your disposal, it is always wise to learn the ropes while risking as little as possible. The most important part of trading is STICKING TO YOUR STRATEGY. Remain as disciplined as possible. Don’t let small losses sway you into changing your technique. The more you waver from your original plan, the higher the chances of making losses. If you wisely studied and chose the right trading technique, it will start paying dividends sooner or later. Step 4: Always Keep A Record of Your Trades The most experienced and successful traders always have a printed record. On these printed charts, the traders indicate their entry and exit points. Some even scribble the reasons behind making the decisions they made at the time of trading. This approach is efficient since you can take time to analyze all your trades. This will help you understand when your trades are doing best and when you are at your worst. Learn from the charts. Not just the performance of your trades but also your emotional state affects making decisions. Once you learn to control your emotions, you will realize that you are making informed decisions and reaping massive benefits. Step 5: Let The Positives Deprive The Negatives Once you have an idea of the strategies that are working positively for you, start feeding them more. Increase your stakes and take more risks. On the other hand, trim the impulsive thoughts which force you to make bad decisions. This will reduce your losses. Over time, you will realize that you have perfected your strategy of trading and even curated your personalized technique which works for you as an individual. Conclusion It takes time to become a refined trader but the steps above will accelerate the process. If you remain disciplined and keep your emotions in check, you will become a great trader. There is no other secret to success in the trading industry—you simply have to gradually work your way to it. There are a lot of benefits in trading when you are on top of your game and they are waiting for you to upskill. Upskill yourself today.

Discord-Focused Malware AnarchyGrabber Evolves, Now Attacking Users’ Direct Contacts

ForkLog (English) (about 8 hours ago)

An updated version of the AnarchyGrabber trojan has begun circulating the Internet posing a threat to the communication app Discord users. The malware is reportedly geared to steal users’ passwords and tokens, disable two-factor authentication (2FA), and even spread the attack on a victim’s contacts, Bleeping Computer reported on May 24. AnarchyGrabber is a malicious program that particularly targets Discord users. Once installed, the malware is capable of initiating damaging activities in a victim’s computer system, stealing personal data, spying on its victims, and manipulating the system’s processes, among other things. AnarchyGrabber Continues to Develop, Posing New Threats The malware has already been around for some time, and mostly affected users’ account main points, transferring the collected tokens to third-party servers, as well as changed device folders. What is important, the trojan can evade detection as it modifies the JavaScript document of the app, and conceal its functions from a user’s antivirus software. Bad actors distribute AnarchyGrabber on Discord disguising it as a game cheat, hacking tool, or copyrighted software. Last week, the community detected a new version of the malware dubbed AnarchyGrabber3. The modified version’s features now enable cybercriminals to steal users’ plain text password and command an infected client to spread the malicious program to a victim’s contacts on Discord. To achieve this, the malware loads a slew of malicious JavaScript files into the client, which eventually logs the user out of the Discord client. “Once a victim logs in, the modified Discord client will attempt to disable 2FA on their account. The client then uses a Discord webhook to send the user's email address, login name, user token, plain text password, and IP address to a Discord channel under the attacker's control,” Bleeping Computer further explained. The modified client then runs commands received from the attacker, wherein one of those commands orders the modified client to send a message—that contains malware within it— to all of the logged-in user’s friends. Communication Apps Fall Victim to Increased Hacker Attacks Hacker attacks on communication applications have gained traction in recent months given people’s growing demand for staying in touch with friends and relatives amid the coronavirus pandemic. Most recently, researchers found two new malware files disguised as installers for the communication app Zoom. Once downloaded and installed, one of the malicious files that mimics the Zoom installer sets up a backdoor that enables criminals to initiate malicious processes remotely. The other file installs the so-called Devil Shadow botnet in devices. Also, a group of cybersecurity researchers detected a severe security vulnerability in Bluetooth-based communication that can potentially enable bad actors to impersonate any Bluetooth master or slave device, earlier in May. The probe showed that during BIAS attacks criminals can obtain all sorts of data, according to the device that the attacker is impersonating. Meanwhile, Google is planning to implement end-to-end encryption into its communication app, Google Messages. This will apparently keep third-parties from message tampering.
