Trading Scenarios

Trading Scenarios

In this section, we will explore three trading scenarios, each demonstrating a distinctly typical set of strategies and actions taken by traders on the Storm Trade platform. These scenarios showcase various aspects of trading, including opening long positions, increasing open positions, and creating limit orders, while also incorporating risk management tools such as stop loss and take profit orders.

Scenario 1: Going Long with Leverage, Stop Loss, and Take Profit

In this scenario, we will delve into the process of opening a long position with leverage while implementing risk management tools like stop loss and take profit orders. We will use a specific example to illustrate these actions.

Starting Point: The current BTC price is $27,000. Our trader anticipates an upward movement and aims to buy at the current price and sell at $29,000.

Risk Management: He chooses a 5x leverage to maximize potential profit while keeping risks in check.

Execution: Our trader opens a trading pair, selects a "Market" order for the current price, specifies an amount of 1000 USDT as collateral, and sets the leverage to 5x.

Safety Measures: To mitigate risks, he sets a Stop Loss at $26,700, ensuring automatic closure if the price dips. Additionally, a Take Profit is set at $29,000 to secure profits. Once the transaction is confirmed, the open position is displayed in the "Long" tab, and stop-loss and take-profit orders are visible in the "Orders" tab.

Scenario 2: Scaling Up with Multiple Take Profit Levels

Starting Point: Our trader has opened a long position in BTC/USDT with a collateral of $1,000 USDT and 5x leverage. He entered the position at $27,000 with a futures contract volume of 0.158 BTC. A take-profit order with a trigger price of $29,000 USDT is in place for this position.

Market Analysis: Believing in a continued BTC price rise, our trader decides to increase the position.

Execution: He opens a new position at the current BTC price of $28,000 using a "Market" order. He provides $2,000 USDT as collateral and selects 15x leverage.After signing the transaction, the position profile changes: the collateral size is now 3,000 USDT, the leverage has become 10 times, and the average entry point has increased to 27,750 USDT. The volume of the futures contract is 1.081 BTC.

Managing Gains: For the new position volume, the trader wants to set a price at which he will secure profits. After successfully scaling up the position, he opens the "ORDERS" tab and specifies the price at which part of the position (0.9 BTC) will be closed, with a take-profit set at $28,500. The order execution works as follows: when the BTC price reaches $28,500, 0.9 BTC of the position will be closed. The remaining portion of the position will be closed through a take-profit order at $29,000 BTC.

Scenario 3: Creating a Limit Order with Short Selling, Leverage, and Safety Nets

Starting Point: BTC is at $28,600, and our trader expects a price drop after reaching $29,000.

Strategic Move: To profit from this trend without waiting, he creates a Limit Order.

Execution: The trader opens the trading pair and establishes a short position with a "Limit" order at a price of $29,000. He provides $2,000 USDT as collateral and chooses 3x leverage. While there's a threefold increase in risk, in the context of the anticipated trend, this risk is significantly lower than the potential threefold profit. The reward justifies the risk, and the risks are very much under control too.

Risk Management: To safeguard against potential losses, a stop-loss is set at $29,300. This ensures that if the asset's price rises to this level, the position will be automatically closed, preventing a ruinous setback for the trader. A take-profit at $27,000 ensures profit-taking as soon as the asset's price reaches an acceptable closing level. With careful planning, the trader has executed all his moves on the Storm Exchange platform, and a new "Limit" order appears on the "Orders" tab.

These are examples of practical strategies for navigating Storm Trade efficiently and effectively. Fair winds and following seas.
