Cryptocurrency Trading Strategies: Arbitrage

In previous publications, we talked about some popular trading strategies, such as scalping and news based trading. Today, we’ll tell you about another strategy — arbitrage.

The arbitrage strategy is when a trader trades on multiple exchanges. They use the difference in cryptocurrency prices on different exchanges and makes a profit on this difference. The trader compares prices on multiple exchanges and calculates the profit: where cryptocurrency can be bought at a lower price and sold at a higher price. In other words, the trader compares the price of the same cryptocurrency on different exchanges and calculates when the profit will be larger.

Arbitrage is not an easy-to-use strategy, but it’s quite profitable

This strategy cannot be regarded as an easy-to-use strategy, but such trading can be the most profitable. To engage in arbitrage, you need to register accounts on multiple cryptoexchanges and carefully analyze and memorize their respective functionalities. You need to do it to rapidly respond and not to lag behind when you create buy/sell orders.

It’s important to correctly calculate fees to be paid for transferring funds between exchanges and to account for the deposit/withdrawal rate. You should also analyze and memorize how prices usually change on specific platforms. Just like with any other strategy, it’s good to master analytical tools, learn how to rapidly and competently read and understand charts
