Bitcoin EA automated betting bot


Recommended Posts

Hi Panda


I just put some EAS on bitcoin and ether crypto currencies, using existing settings.Every Time the the EA got a signal, default stop would get hit very quickly, or the big sharks were playing clever, they went for tight stops.


You need very wide stops to trade cryptocurrencies.Spreads to volatility ratio, volatility is 9 % a day,is that correct?Spread is 70, spread volatility ratio is 7.7%.Just pointing out facts from a trader's perspective.Is it worth paying 7% spread, it is okay to pay this,if fundamentals are likely to increase volatility and trend out.


As a real trader,I am analysing the cost of opportunity.On Dow I am paying 1 % with IG  , on spread to volatility %..I am trying to feel the water on  cryptofreaks. and crypto  roller coasters.


Don't get defensive on IG's spreads, the cost of trading these instruments is very high.I used Bitcoin to make a payment, it cost me 40% in costs to use payment by bitcoin.It must be expensive to hedge risk on bitcoins.Only real traders talk about the reality of spread costs.

    • Just sharing the fundamentals. There are only 3 ways the market can go. Up, down or sideways. In other words, if we bet on 1 way. There is only 1/3 probability we can make money.  Can we have 2/3 probability of winning? It is possible, if we hold a sideway position long enough for it to move up. But is it possible to have 3/3 or 100% win? Hmm... it is not possible. Yet it seems, we have many (novice) people who trade and hope to win all the time.  So, why is it most traders lose money in the market? Winning traders form around 10% of the market participants.   If you can't win at trading, find out why. As a famous saying goes. Tell me where I die and I make sure I don't go there. It is normal to make losses in trading, just make sure the losses are not too big. Learn from it and make better trading decisions next time.

    • Watch out for opportunities to buy into the market sell-off With markets showing a poor start to 2022, how far down will they go and when will a recovery take place? IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor caught up with Robert Alster, chief investment officer at Close Brother Asset Management. His best case was that, while interest rates will rise, there will be an easing of inflation in the second quarter and so an opportunity to buy back into recovery sectors. https://www.ig.com/uk/market-insight-articles/watch-out-for-opportunities-to-buy-into-the-market-sell-off-220120
