Many traders use technical analysis as part of their method of trading crypto. This involves using the price movements of the major underlying asset to make predictions about the break outs and long range support levels. While this type of analysis can be quite profitable, it can also be risky. Since it is impossible to take the scope of the market into account every time a move is made, many traders become overly confident and become greedy. If the price of a security goes up, they will want to buy, even if the technical analysis indicates it is a bad idea. Unfortunately, if they are incorrect, they may lose their entire investment, even though they made a good decision in buying during a good time.
