Best markets for mean reversion


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

On average are Forex markets more suited to mean reversion strategies than say indices or commodities? And do you choose your market type based on the conditions at the time or do you steer clear of some on purpose?

Thanks for your insight

Is IG platform just lacking indicators and flexibility? Do you pay for MT4? Sorry I could read about it on IG website. I just wonder if it would make a difference to me to switch now I know the IG platform. Hopefully they work in a similar way.

Hi - To answer your question, Crypto is my favourite asset class when it comes to mean reversion because it's the most volatile. It's a lot more volatile than Forex or even stocks. This chart is particularly insightful: https://charts.woobull.com/bitcoin-volatility-vs-other-assets/

no, mt4 🙂 ...

all platforms are similar, learn one and the others are easier to learn, the IG web platform is more a dealing based platform rather than charting based such as mt4, the 3rd party PRT does a good job at being both.

mt4 is free, there is a charge for PRT if low value use (just using for the extras rather than actually trading on). try PRT, IG should warn you in advance if they intend to start charging you for the use of.

    • I don't think it would be a problem trading during the weekend. You can trade whenever you want.  I learned how to do it on the cryptoinformator website. The highest income is brought by bitcoin. When looking at the value of the current 55,000 dollars, of course, everyone is thinking about investing in it. Forecasts vary, and many believe that by the end of 2021, they would have surpassed 100,000 dollars. The growth is projected to be based on the fact that real-world payment flow stock markets are still burdened by the current pandemic but is also based on the increasing acceptance of BTC as legal tender ( PayPal is bringing this option, and bitcoin is also coming to Wall Street soon).
    • I played around with it (created two plots of the smallest viable K-32 size). While I'm farming this tiny amount now I've stopped plotting until pooling is introduced - since existing plots aren't going to be compatible with pooling. The cost of wearing out SSDs is high. You're effectively buying (via SSD wear) lottery tickets (the plots) with a chance of winning a lottery (by farming). Without pooling its unlikely small players will win. The "estimated time to win" is based on current network space that will probably rise at a very quick rate reducing your chance of winning exponentially.  Unless you're farming petabytes, using the rule of large numbers to take out the lottery element, its not worth the time of smaller farmers imho. It may be worthwhile when they introduce pooling.
    • Yeah, you can trade whenever you want.
