How to get through a bear market

by Maryna Trifonova, Head of Content at Jax.Network

A bear market is like an unwanted guest — it always comes without an invitation and eats everything till the last bit of your supplies. But unlike an unwanted guest, you can’t ask the bear market to leave. You need to deal with it. Here’s a list of tips that will help you to get through the bear market.

Tip 1: Avoid looking for the dip

Contrary to popular belief, buying the dip is not the best strategy for a bear market, as you never know how low the price might go. Investing a big chunk of money at once is already a risky endeavor on its own. It often happens that the price falls in several waves and you don’t want to hold a bag of coins waiting for the market to recover. Instead, you might want to consider dollar-cost averaging which implies investing in small portions over a long period of time. It will save you a lot of time, money, and mental health that you would have spent trying to “beat the market” and find the bottom.

Tip 2: Don’t overlevarage

Bear markets are notoriously known due to low liquidity, as major market players go off the radar. If you are a retail trader or investor, it might be a good idea to do the same and take some rest. In case you still want to be in the game, make sure you don’t overleverage your trades, as it’s much easier to manipulate an illiquid market and you don’t want to be left with zero when the market finally reaches the dip.

Tip 3: Reduce altcoin exposure

Diversification is always a great strategy for minimizing your portfolio exposure. However, let’s be honest and say that some projects won’t survive this bear market, so you need to do thorough research on every altcoin project you want to invest your money in. And even if the project looks legit, you can never be sure it won’t run out of funding at some point, so try not to hold too many altcoins. And certainly don’t invest more than you are ready to lose.

Tip 4: Make use of staking

Staking is a good way to increase the value of your portfolio with minimum risks. During the last bear market, it wasn’t even popular but today we have so many platforms competing to offer the best deal, so it would be completely irrational not to use such a brilliant opportunity. Of course, you will have to do your own research prior to investing your money into any of the platforms in order to escape the next Anchor protocol. You can start your research with our USDT/BUSD staking program which offers up to 36% APR.

Tip 5: Stay optimistic

Bear markets come to give us some time to rest, review our strategy, and prepare for the next bull run. You can start to focus on researching new projects, identifying new trends within the space, and accumulating a better portfolio, taking into account your past experience.

Conclusion

It’s important to remember that market cycles are natural and after every down, there will always be an up. The bear market is a marvelous opportunity to build a well-balanced portfolio and maximize your profits during the next bull run. So if you have a good strategy, follow your risk management, and keep your head cold at all times, you will be just fine.
