Strategy Overview

  • “Monte Carlo” is a short term strategy designed to buy the dip during a downward trending market.

Entry Criteria

  • This strategy attempts to buy the dip in a downward trending market.
  • It looks for a short term Buy Signal using EMACROSS and LOWBB to determine if the buying conditions are correct.
  • Using LOWBB it confirms we are in the lower range.
  • It uses EMAGAIN to see if there is a dip in the price we can take advantage of.
  • It then uses STOCH to see if we are oversold to ensure we buy the dip.
  • Finally it trails the price to ensure we get to the bottom of that dip.
  • In a similar fashion to FrankenStrategy this strategy employs a scalping strategy to sort out pairs in order to find those pairs that will go in to DCA where the real profits are.
  • This strategy introduces the Tesla Buy Triggers an aggressive DCA buying strategy to decrease average price quickly and get pairs into profit.

Trade Management

  • The strategy applies the 2% and 10% rules of trading.
  • Position size is limited to 2% of risk capital per trade.
  • Only 5 trading pairs are active at any time to ensure no more than 10% of total risk capital is employed in trading at any time.
  • A trailing stop loss is employed rather than a fixed stop loss.
  • Take profit is employed to prevent loss of profits.

Exit Criteria

  • This strategy uses the GAIN to sell as soon as the current price goes above the GAIN threshold you set.
  • It uses trailing profit to ensure we sell as close as possible to the peak.

Strategy Tips

  • This strategy works in either a Bear or Sideways market. It is a good strategy to use in a Bear market because it doesn't need a lot of volatility to be able to pick good pairs to trade with, it scalps until it finds them.
  • See the Specific Strategies section regarding the Tesla DCA Triggers used by this strategy.
  • The key to this strategy is to ensure you do not overextend yourself by getting your max trading pairs and initial cost right to suit your trading budget.
  • Use the DCA calculator we provide to work these values out covering at least 4 levels of DCA for all your pairs. Once you have those values enter them into this strategy. The DCA calculator also ensures you have a 50/50 split on your trading budget to ensure you have sufficient budget for the sell side of this strategy.
