 But wait, there is more! PT has a buying strategy that helps you if your coin purchase begins to drop in value. It is called Dollar Cost Averaging or DCA for short, and will buy more coins for you as the price drops in order to lower the average price that you must meet in order to sell for a profit, or to prevent a loss.  But wait, there is more!

 Values normally range between -2 for very, very conservative (things are going down in the market and you want to make sure you don’t buy unless the coin is 2% below the low SMA line), to 0 for somewhat conservative,​ to 1-1.5% for somewhat aggressive, to 2% for very aggressive. ​ Values normally range between -2 for very, very conservative (things are going down in the market and you want to make sure you don’t buy unless the coin is 2% below the low SMA line), to 0 for somewhat conservative,​ to 1-1.5% for somewhat aggressive, to 2% for very aggressive. ​
  
-''​ALL_buy_value_limit''​ in SMAGAIN puts a lower limit on your ALL_buy_value setting so that you will not, for example, go below -X% of the low SMA line. See [[buy_and_sell_strategies|Buy & Sell Strategies]] for details on this setting, but it will affect PBL if your coin pair price is below that limit. ​+''​ALL_buy_value_limit''​ in SMAGAIN puts a lower limit on your ALL_buy_value setting so that you will not, for example, go below -X% of the low SMA line.

 ===Buying with SMACROSS=== ===Buying with SMACROSS===
-Buying with SMACROSS is similar to SMAGAIN, but the two SMA lines must have crossed within the last ''​SMA_cross_candles''​ (set in Indicators.configuration) value, minus one candle (e.g. if SMA_cross_candles is 5, then the cross must have occurred within the last 4 candles). In addition, the current value of the coin must be below the lower SMA line by ALL_buy_value % (again, similar to SMAGAIN explained above and in [[buy_and_sell_strategies|Buy & Sell Strategies]]. ​+Buying with SMACROSS is similar to SMAGAIN, but the two SMA lines must have crossed within the last ''​SMA_cross_candles''​ (set in Indicators.configuration) value, minus one candle (e.g. if SMA_cross_candles is 5, then the cross must have occurred within the last 4 candles).
