Additionally, Mishaboar explained further along in the Twitter thread that a lot of new investors believe that they need to use tools like leveraged Dogecoin trading to succeed in the market when they in fact do not.

Since most of these investors are new to the market, they do not fully grasp the dangers associated with carrying out margin trades. Some may not understand market dynamics that would cause their positions to be liquidated, leading to heavy losses on the part of these new investors.

Elon Musk Cosigns Mishaboar’s Message

Mishaboar did not end his message with just new investors. They had also expressed that even experienced traders may not be as “experienced” as they may believe. For these investors, even though they may have more liquidity and experience compared to the average trader, they are still going up against institutional investors with a lot more resources and data than individual traders.

The Dogecoin enthusiast called for caution as they explained that these tools can be dangerous to use in traditional markets. Add in the highly unregulated and volatile crypto market and the dangers of using margin trading grow 100-fold. Basically, the house always wins.

Elon Musk had expressed support for the message that Mishaboar was trying to pass along. Musk who is a well-known personality in the meme coin space took to the platform to voice his support for calls for caution. Underneath Mishaboar’s Twitter thread, Musk had written “Good thread” in approval.
