You don’t need to be an expert in the field of machine learning to understand that humans can’t keep up with modern computers. Emotional pitfalls, miscalculations, and exhaustion are just three things a machine does not suffer from.

Trading routines like entry, exit, and risk management can now be programmed in a single computer system. Cool right?  And it does the job better than humans, all the time. Here’s why.

Humans Need to Sleep

It’s obvious right? Humans need to sleep, but the cryptocurrency market never does. It is globally traded 24/7! So as a human, it is impossible to meet this demand. Eventually, we need to use a machine.

Humans Struggle with Emotions

Every trader has his own set of rules, but to consistently follow them is another story. Even seasoned traders sometimes suffer from FOMO (fear of missing out), revenge trading and miscalculations. 

No human could perfectly calculate everything day in and day out like the machines. 

Humans are Slow

We must admit, we have a tendency to hesitate and overthink especially when dealing with large sums of money. Unfortunately, the cryptocurrency is a fast-paced market, so we need to be able to make immediate decisions and execute accordingly. It can be very frustrating to have reached the profit target but the timing window was so small to be able to place an order! 

The system is programmed to respond immediately to ever changing market conditions; it can generate orders immediately as soon as the trade rules are met. Getting in or out of a trade a few seconds earlier could really make a huge difference in terms of profit.
