You’ve heard so much about the 4C-Trading SMART Bots but what about the SMART Margin that comes with all the 4C-Trading subscription packs? With the SMART Bots trading only on the Binance Spot market in long position, how can you benefit from a potential market downturn with 4C-Trading?
If you have already asked yourself these questions, you have come to the right place, today we are going to talk about the SMART Margin!
What is the SMART Margin?
At 4C-Trading, one of our objectives is to take the stress and complexity out of crypto trading through automation with advanced trading algorithms, so that our members can sit back, relax and enjoy the benefits. With automated crypto trading, you’ll be able to trade 24/7/365 and never have to worry about sudden downturns or even trend reversal!
So what is the famous SMART Margin? Behind this name is simply an automatic trading algorithm that trades both long and short on the FTX platform. In other words, through the price fluctuations, there will be plenty of opportunities to benefit from.
What are the advantages?
No need to create your own strategy
Just like the SMART Bots, the main advantage of SMART Margin is that it trades automatically based on a rigorously tested and regularly updated algorithm. This makes it interesting if you don’t have the knowledge and long training that will allow you to be profitable in the market.
Creating your own strategy takes a lot of time in knowledge acquisition and backtesting before one can finally find a proven profitable strategy that works for him. To save time and opportunity costs, the SMART Margin is an excellent solution that allows you to become familiar with real money trading.
Controlling emotions is one of the most important, if not the most important, success factors in your trading career. It is the skill that takes the longest to acquire, as it goes against our survival instinct.
Once the SMART Margin opens positions for you, you don’t have to worry about it anymore. The bot will take care of it for you. It will long or short at the most optimized moments to help you reap the benefits. You can enjoy exposure to the cryptos market with a light mind.
On which Platform?
As mentioned above, SMART Margin trades on the FTX trading platform. We chose this platform because of its relatively low transaction costs and the ability to trade on indices such as ALTPERP. This index represents the major altcoins and it is therefore possible to be exposed to the altcoin market without cherry picking.
SMART Margin Trade currently on the following perpetual contracts: ADA, ALGO, BTC, LTC, ETH, THETA, EOS, BSV, BCH and ALTPERP with a 73.56% success rate since the launch on October 1st, 2020.
Important to note: We previously offered some pairs on Binance Futures as well but we recently decided to focus on FTX only.
How does it work?
For each traded pair, SMART Margin uses a different set of parameters for stop-loss or take-profit. The latter can also be adjusted according to market volatility.
As far as the position size is concerned, SMART Margin works on a risk basis and not on a fixed amount. Indeed, for each position that the bot will take, the risk will be fixed at 2% of your capital. This means that in case of a stop-loss, your loss will be equal to 2%, plus or minus a possible slippage.
By keeping a 2% non-modifiable risk, we make sure that the performance of our test accounts is similar to that of our clients.
How to activate Smart Margin?
The first step will be the creation of your account on the FTX platform and the creation of your API key.
When this step is completed, we will then go to the Dashboard to link your FTX API key with the 4C-Trading engine.

In addition to setting up the SMART Margin, the next most asked question is – “What portion of my fund should I allocate across the SMART Bots and SMART Margin?”
Given that no two individuals have the same risk and reward profile, the safest option is to allocate 25% equally across the three SMART Bots and SMART Margin, so that the risk is evenly spread out. This number is not set in stone and you are able to switch up the percentage. Having said that, do bear in mind that this is not financial advice and you should always do your own research before taking the leap.
SMART Margin is a tool that can free you some time either to learn how to manually trade, or to do what you like the most. As it’s fully automated, you don’t have to do anything beside the API creation.
It is also a tool that allows you to benefit from the crypto market regardless of which direction the price may be going. For those who have just embarked on the trading adventure, SMART Margin is definitely a tool that you can’t live without!
