Issue 24 – Don’t Trade, Invest!


Trading successfully is one of the most challenging endeavors you can pursue.

Investing, on the other hand, is relatively straightforward, especially in a growth market like cryptos.

That may sound strange coming from someone who started in the markets as a trader, but it’s the truth.

Today’s issue focuses on why investing for the long term is far more advantageous than trading. Not only is investing more profitable for most, but it’s also far less stressful.

Let’s begin!

Investing > Trading

I’ve been active in the financial markets since 2001. I went from penny stocks to mid and large-caps to Forex (currencies) and now crypto.

I began as a trader, or at least an aspiring one, and I still trade here and there today.

So, why am I telling you not to follow my lead?

It’s simple. Trading is for the 1% that have a passion for it. I’m one of them.

About the Author

I'm Justin Bennett, a currency trader turned crypto enthusiast.

My journey started with stocks in 2002. After limited success, I transitioned to currencies in 2007, which later became a full time trading gig.

The journey continued, and in 2020, I committed to learning about cryptocurrencies. It was love at first sight.

Cryptocademy.com is the culmination of my love for cryptocurrencies, my passion for financial markets, and desire to learn and teach.
