GTR — Consistency Is King
Oftentimes the difference between failure and success rests firmly on the decision to just keep going. That has certainly been the case recently. Starting with the cryptocurrency market’s rollover last summer, the barely abating deleveraging and contraction of the past year made everyone’s efforts more difficult, and successes rarer. As the late, great British Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli once contended, though, “Through perseverance, many people win success out of what seemed destined to be certain failure.”
Consistency Is King
When it comes to the market, there is a more direct aphorism. Consistency is King. But the reality tends to prove differently. Consistency only matters if the foundations of success have been laid effectively. And the proof of that, as they say, is in the pudding. It comes down to skill repeatedly accomplishing its goal, not the arbitrariness of luck.To extend the cooking metaphor a bit, the flavor of one pudding does not ultimately indicate success. The flavor of the tenth, the hundredth, the thousandth does.
Short term success can also sometimes be the product of luck. In boxing, there always exists the puncher’s chance. The possibility of some deus ex machina descending from the metaphorical rafters like Parliament-Funkadelic’s Mothership, no matter how unlikely, always exists. Sadly, most of us will never experience such sublime deliverance. For real success, though, no one wants to hang their fortunes on a Hail Mary. It may have worked for Roger Staubach and the Dallas Cowboys, but it is no way to run a serious financial concern.
Setting the Pace
The GTR team refuses to follow the herd. The short-term pyritic mindset that besets so much of the rest of the digital asset space paves the way to failure. Fortunately for us, that makes what GTR is doing so much more remarkable, providing the entire digital asset space a stark contrast for comparison. Still, it is no wonder our approach seems so novel.
Consistency is difficult to sustain. It requires executing on the basics, time and time again. Consistent success means repeatedly doing the little things — the rudiments — exactly right almost every time. Developing those skills and habits requires a more long-term, holistic approach that many others consider too much work.
The results, however, speak for themselves. The GTR trading team just closed yet another month in the green, lifting the team’s unbroken streak of providing passive income to our contributors to nine straight trading periods.
We find that consistency proves to be its own reward. Trust is built over time. Healthy relationships can only be forged through mutual trust. They are rare and valuable, and the basis of our vision. In order to build trust, we must build credibility. There is no better way to build credibility than consistency.
Consistency also provides the team the opportunity to improve over time. Consistent improvements based on experience when times are difficult are the improvements that stick. It takes effort to succeed for the long haul. But it is only through great and consistent effort that we achieve great feats. Great achievements are most predictably completed by consistent work and improvement. For GTR each new milestone and waypoint brings us closer and closer to reaching our ultimate goal of bridging the divide.
Our Community Makes the Difference
In light of the consistent success of the GTR team, our community has rewarded that success with even greater trust. In the immediate wake of the NFT withdrawal option integration, our community contributed more than $200K in additional fresh top-ups. That burst of additional liquidity significantly expands the pool of capital that the GTR trading team employs to generate rewards.
Most people have heard that it takes money to make money. In the trading markets, truer words have never been spoken. Access to sufficient amounts of liquidity means our team can pursue more golden opportunities more often. Timelines for open trades extend, lowering risk. Profitable positions open and grow. Properly capitalized traders can remain in trades longer, take on more managed risk, and can ultimately increase significantly their total return. GTR looks to put this new liquidity to work immediately.
