The market never closes…
Using cryptocurrencies, anyone in any part of the work can instantly transfer funds to anyone thousands of miles away. This can be done 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
In the U.S. and other countries, regular stocks are listed on The New York Stock Exchange, NASDAQ or in their own stock exchanges and usually trades between 9:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Though after-market trading hours do exist within the stock market usually between 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. However, investors have to compromise by given that liquidity is generally thinner and price executions are not so favorable. However, in the crypto market these variables or rules do not exist.
There are also thousands of crypto-clubs and groups you can join for you to communicate with like minded traders. These group of individuals are always in touch with regulatory updates that are constantly posted and provide investment advise based on market conditions so that anyone can now have the opportunity to ‘be in the know’.
Although the market for digital currency is open nonstop, a successful investor would know that more trades are successful if transacted when global market activity is high given the higher liquidity and opportunity to be price makers. Outside the hours of these global markets, trading can lower volume and unfavorable.
