 +BUY THE DIP
  
-Details about strategy+“Monte Carlo” is a short term strategy ​designed to buy the dip during a downward trending market.
  
 +=== Strategy Overview ===
 +
 +On the buy side this strategy allows us 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 however introduces Tesla Buy Triggers an agressive DCA buying strategy to decrease average price quickly and get pairs into profit.
 +
 +On the sell side this strategy uses the GAIN to sell as soon as the current price goes above the GAIN threshold you set. It uses trailing to ensure we sell as close as possible to the peak.
 +
 +=== Strategy Market Conditions ===
 +
 +This strategy works in either a Bear or Sideways market. It is good to use in a Bear market because it doesn'​t need a lot of volatility to be able to pick good pairs to trade.

 + 
 +  * This strategy introduces the “Tesla” DCA Buy Triggers these are an aggressive DCA strategy. So when you first start to use this strategy set your initial cost setting low until you get more confident with this approach. It will work fine with existing DCA logs and will eat away at older larger DCA’s until they clear. ​ 
 +  * Use the [[default_settings#​PTTracker_DCA_Calculator|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 [[default_settings#​PTTracker_DCA_Calculator|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.

-Details about strategy+This strategy ​employs the classic scalping aka jobbing strategy.
  
 +Jobbing is an old english term referring to the buying and selling of shares within extremely short timeframes for tiny profits. ​
 +A jobber typically trades in a particular stock, mainly in the cash market. They thrive on short-term volatility.
 +Jobbers or scalpers as they are also known trade continuously throughout the day making hundreds of trades per day and earning a reasonable profit at the end of the day from relatively small profits per trade. When Jobbers were working they were known to be Jobbing The Market. Hence the name of this strategy.
 +
 +The buy side makes use of the LOWBB and RSI indicators to buy as soon as the current ​ price goes below the LOWBB threshold you specify. It then uses RSI to confirm we are in an overbought scenario at the bottom of the trade cycle to ensure we buy the dip. 
 +
 +It is a simple buy strategy that is used widely. It is perfect for a Bull market where volatility is at its highest.
 +
 +The sell side uses RSI to confirm we are at the top of the trade cycle to ensure we sell at the peak.  It makes use of GAIN to sell as soon as the current price goes above the GAIN threshold you set. It uses a low GAIN percentage to scalp profits as quickly as possible.
 +
 +
 +=== Strategy Market Conditions ===
 +
 +This strategy works best in bull market conditions when volatility is at its highest.

 +  * Spanish Cross makes use of the DEFAULT_combined_cancel_pending_trigger to attempt to cancel pending sales and return them to the pairs/dca log if combined profit reaches the set level. In our case 0.25%  If the Pending Order didn't cancel and the coin sold off from Pairs or DCA then it is likely that the combined profit didn't reach that trigger point. Alternatively the Coin may have sold off before the Pending Order got cancelled in which case the Pending Order would have been recreated.

 + 
 +=== Purchase Same Number Of Coins Per DCA Level === 
 + 
 +Sets the per trigger level percentage of TCV to purchase when making a DCA buy. 
 + 
 +Purchase the same number of coins at each DCA level effectively doubling down but in a more sustainable manner than the standard ANDERSON technique which does a direct doubling of the cost per DCA level and therefore is much more costly to your trading budget.  
 + 
 +By purchasing the same number of coins per DCA level this technique allows you to stretch your trading budget out much further and achieve deeper DCA levels if required.

 +=== Positive DCA aka Anti-DCA or Anti-Martingale === 
 + 
 +**What is DCA?** In short, it is a method for lowering the average price of a losing trade, making the recovery easier as the price needs only to recover to the new lower average buy price. For a long, more detailed explanation,​ [[http://​forexop.com/​martingale-trading-system-overview/​|read here]]. Using DCA increases your holdings and will result in significantly larger positions in each coin. 
 + 
 +**What is Positive DCA or Anti-DCA?** Positive DCA is the opposite of DCA and is a means of increasing our position size and resulting profits on winning trades. It is best used in trending markets when buying into a bullish uptrend. The idea being to cut losing trades quickly and back the winning trades. 
 + 
 +You need to be careful with Positive DCA because as as soon as it DCA's it will take a pair that is in profit into a loss. Because you are buying into an uptrend it increases you average cost so can put you in a loss initially until the pair recovers.  
 + 
 +Here is an example composite timeline of the effects of Positive DCA on a trade:  
 + {{ :​user:​settings:​20180615b13qwarktimeline.png?​direct&​400 |}} 
 +  
 +In this example we show the trading pair BTC-QWARK as it goes through an 8% bull run. When this trading pair gets sent to the DCA log it has reached 5.18% in profit on the trade our bot has taken. If the bot were to sell this right now it would bring 5.18% of USD$68.13 or USD$3.53 in profit (Note: we are using the order book value to provide a more realistic example). Not a bad profit but we could have done better as the uptrend was still going when we sold.  
 + 
 +In this case we have applied Positive DCA to the trade. The DCA buy criteria are met and the first double down the bot does increases the average price of the pair and the pair drops from 5.18% to 0.41% in profit. Because we bought the pair on a bullish uptrend it recovers slightly to 0.54% profit. Our buy criteria are met again and another double down takes place. This time the pair drops into a loss of -1.14% again due to the bullish uptrend it recovers slightly to -0.88%. The bullish uptrend continues and the bot's DCA sell criteria are met so the pair sells off for 2.19% of USD$288.22 or USD$6.31 in profit. 
 + 
 +Here is an example composite timeline of the effects of Positive DCA on a trade:  
 + {{ :​settings:​20180615b13edgtimeline.png?​direct&​400 |}} 
 + 
 +Note how the pair went from 2.8 profit to -0.64 and then recovered to 2.95 with an increased position size. 
 + 
 +In this example we show the trading pair BTC-EDG as it goes through an 2.58% bull run. When this trading pair gets sent to the DCA log it has reached 2.8% in profit on the trade our bot has taken. If the bot were to sell this right now it would bring 2.8% of USD$66.32 or USD$1.86 in profit (Note: we are using the order book value to provide a more realistic example). 
 + 
 +The bullish uptrend continues, in this case much quicker than BTC-QWARK'​s did as evidenced by the faster recovery time of the BTC-EDG pair. As the pair rises in value the bot applies positive DCA and eventually the bot's DCA sell criteria are met so the pair sells off for 2.95% of USD$134.66 or USD$3.97 in profit. 
 + 
 +By applying Positive DCA we have significantly increased our profits on these two trades. 
 + 
 +Always use some form of money management to mitigate risk when using Positive DCA in order to avoid "​catching a falling knife" as the upward trend can reverse quickly. i.e. Stop Loss or Normal DCA or Pending Orders.

 +=== Picking good Trading Pairs ===
 +
 +**How the Settings Pick Pairs**
 +
 +The settings by default will manage by exception and black list the pairs that we don't want to trade.
 +It does this by removing:
 +  - Pairs Delisted from the exhanges
 +  - Pairs that are not worth day trading i.e. failed crypto projects, projects with bad reputations in the market, pairs with very low volatility
 +  - Pairs that you may want to ban temporarily until those trading pairs recover from a downturn
 +  - Pairs that you may want to HODL (Hold on for Dear Life)
 +
 +It only takes the top volume pairs. We let the bot take its time to pick good pairs while our pairs log clears ​
 +or we DCA or create Pending Orders.
 +
 +**Manually Picking Pairs**
 +
 +When picking pairs manually you want to look for a good argument happening on the coin i.e. lots of ups and downs with a pattern like a saw blade. The longer that saw blade pattern (oscillation) goes sideways or upwards the better.
 +
 +In other words you are trying to pick pairs with lots of volatility over time.
 +
 +If market goes bad try the following two strategies:
 +  * **Shotgun pairs** - target any pair that has had a rise in the last 3 days
 +  * **Sniper pairs** - sniper pairs use 3 passes:
 +  - First pass is to look for saw blade pattern in normal manner by eyeballing the charts, this gets you a baseline set of pairs to work with;
 +  - Second pass is to examine baseline pairs and use the charts to target any pair that has had a rise in the last 3 days and has high volume only; and
 +  - Third pass is to use your exchange and target pairs with > 600 in volume only.
 +
 +Here is an example of what the passes look like, note each pass has less and less pairs:
 +  * 1st pass using charts and sawtooth pattern - DEFAULT_enabled_pairs = ADT,​ARK,​BAY,​BCC,​BLK,​CFI,​CVC,​DASH,​DCR,​DCT,​DGB,​DNT,​EBST,​EDG,​ENG,​ENRG,​ETC,​ETH,​EXP,​FCT,​FUN,​GNT,​HMQ,​IOP,​KMD,​LBC,​LMC,​LSK,​MAID,​NAV,​NEO,​NLG,​NXT,​OK,​OMG,​QTUM,​RCN,​SALT,​SNT,​STEEM,​STORJ,​SYS,​UBQ,​VIA,​VRM,​WAVES,​XEM,​XLM,​XMR,​XRP,​XVG,​XZC,​ZEC,​ZEN
 +  * 2nd pass using charts and looking for rise in last 3 days volume - DEFAULT_enabled_pairs = ADT,​BCC,​DGB,​DNT,​EDG,​ETC,​ETH,​IOP,​KMD,​LSK,​MAID,​NEO,​RCN,​SALT,​SYS,​UBQ,​XEM,​XLM,​XRP,​XVG
 +  * 3rd pass using exchange volumes > 600 - DEFAULT_enabled_pairs = ADA,​DGB,​IOP,​LSK,​SALT,​XEM,​XLM,​XRP,​XVG
