Coping with Volatility Peaks

The Bitcoin exchange rate is famous for its extreme volatility, but this volatility will only peak at certain times. During these times cryptocurrency exchanges frequently experience additional stress on their servers, due to an increased number of users trying to access and manage their positions. Obviously, getting stuck at the login screen during volatility peaks can be disastrous. The value of the digital currency can change by several percentage points in a matter of minutes. Stop/Trigger orders can help prevent such a disaster, as these can be set at times when the exchange rate is relatively stable. This removes the need to actively manage positions at an inconvenient time in general.
