Features for BitcoinIRA customers after Shrimpy.io integration.
In the following quarters, we will launch an upgraded version of the platform which will include some of these progressed trading feature improvements:
Effective portfolio management in cryptocurrencies involves rebalancing to maintain desired asset allocations. This strategy, essential for a consistent distribution, entails trading coins to align their values with predetermined percentages within the portfolio, accommodating fluctuations in coin prices.
This strategy capitalizes on rapid price changes, can potentially boost overall gains compared to popular strategies such as the “HODL” approach.
Two primary rebalancing strategies are periodic adjustments at shorter intervals and threshold-based adjustments triggered by deviations from target percentages. The former ensures timely portfolio adaptations in the fast-paced crypto market, while the latter offers flexibility in portfolio distributions, preventing excessive deviations without relying on absolute percentage changes. This relative percentage approach ensures consistency in triggering rebalances, even in portfolios with diverse asset allocations.
With this new feature, BitcoinIRA clients will be able to automate asset reallocation to consistently align their portfolio with their retirement objectives, this way every rebalance will be precisely executed by using smart order routing engine.
Dollar-cost averaging (DCA) is an investment strategy minimizing risk by regularly injecting funds into a portfolio. This strategy facilitates the prompt detection and allocation of funds into a portfolio, ensuring a distribution that aligns with the target allocations for each asset in the portfolio. Here’s how it works:
- Deposit Detection: DCA triggers when a deposit is detected, occurring at regular intervals. Funds deposited are recorded for subsequent trades.
- Allocating Funds: Deposited funds are distributed based on current and target portfolio allocations. Proportional distribution is used if reaching target allocations with deposited funds is not feasible.
- Trade Execution: Calculated trades are executed to reach the target portfolio; any remaining funds are left in the deposited asset.
Imagine a $100 portfolio with 5 assets (BTC, LTC, ETH, XRP, BCH) each asset initially valued at $20 (20% of the portfolio). If the owner adds $100 more and aims for the following target allocations:
- 30% BTC
- 25% LTC
- 20% ETH
- 15% XRP
- 10% BCH
The resulting dollar-cost averaging distributes funds, will be the following:
- $60 BTC
- $50 LTC
- $40 ETH
- $30 XRP
- $20 BCH
This approach ensures the final portfolio aligns closely with the specified target allocations.
- Immediate fund distribution.
- Reduces trade frequency, potentially minimizing taxable events and rebalancing needs.
- Mitigates trading fees and simplifies portfolio management.
This way, every time funds are deposited into an account, we will automatically inject those funds into your portfolio with the desired allocations. BitcoinIRA clients will get access to these tried-and-true investment tactics, reimagined for the digital investment landscape.
A portfolio stop-loss differs from individual trading pairs, focusing on the entire portfolio’s value. When the stop-loss threshold is breached, the entire portfolio is sold for a stable asset, preventing significant losses during market downturns.
Loss prevention prevents portfolio losses during market crashes. Especially useful for sudden declines, like the 2020 crash when a -5% stop-loss would have limited losses to -5% instead of -50%, finally triggered stop-loss suspends rebalances until reactivated.
This upcoming feature, available for our customers to choose, will instill an extra layer of security to shield your investments from drastic market downturns.
Through this feature you will be able to check and download your detailed trade history. The history will include comprehensive information like asset details, date, time, amounts and prices, aiding in performance analysis and informed decision-making.
This feature can be particularly helpful if you want to analyze your trading history or keep track of your portfolio’s performance over time.
BitcoinIRA customers will be able to gain comprehensive insight into investments with analytics and transparency.
