Technical Instruments

Contact us if you are not finding your favourite instrument.

You can use the price percent movements as buy and sell signals. This is useful for swing trading. You can also use price crosses with technical indicators like SMA, EMA, Bollinger Bands, Keltner Channel. The up/down percentages are calculated from the lowest/highest points of the price after the start of the strategy on initiation. Then they are calculated from the lowest/highest points of the price after the last trade close. If the execution is stopped it will "remember" its last point for calculation and will use it on restart. That is done so the strategy will not be disrupted if the bot is restarted, if there is loss of power or connection. If you want the execution to start from the point of restart instead, you have to reset it () before restart.
Crypto signals/ technical instruments - price moves and crosses - strategy and results
You can include candle moves and candle patterns in your strategies. Candle moves include open to close/current price, low to high, upper shadow and lower shadow. They are a great way to make a rule with the pure price movement.
You can also use classical candle patterns. The bot implements the following patterns: doji, hammer and inverted hammer, hanging man, shooting star, bullish and bearish engulfs, bullish and bearish harami, morning and evening star. The bot takes into account the trend (for patterns with trend) and recognises the pattern of the candlestick.
Crypto signals/ technical instruments - candle patterns
For example:
The Doji is a reversal trend pattern in both up and down trends.
Candle pattern - Doji
Bullish patterns:

The Hammer found in a downtrend indicates a potential price reversal to the upside. The price should go up following the hammer.
The Inverted hammer found in a downtrend indicates a trend-reversal signal. The price should go up following the inverted hammer.
The Bullish engulfing pattern forms when a big green candle completely overlaps the previous red candle. When it occurs in a downtrend it is a strong indicator for reversing to an uptrend.
The Bullish harami is a sign of a reversal in a bear price movement. The pattern consists of a small green candle that is contained within the previous red candle.
The Morning star pattern is a bullish reversal pattern. It appears at the end of a downtrend. It’s a three-candle pattern, made of a red candle, followed by a small red or green candle that opens below the previous close. The third candle is a bigger green candle that closes in the body of the first candle.
Bullish candle patterns
Bearish patterns:

The Hanging man found in an uptrend is a bearish reversal pattern. The price should go down after that.
The Shooting star is a bearish reversal candlestick pattern that occurs at the top of uptrends. The price should go down afterwards.
The Bullish engulfing pattern forms when a red green candlestick completely overlaps the previous green candlestick. When it occurs in an uptrend it is a strong indicator for reversing to a downtrend.
The Bearish harami is a sign of a reversal in a bull price movement. The pattern consists of a small red candle that can be contained within the previous green candle.
The Evening star pattern is a bearish reversal pattern. It appears at the end of an uptrend. It’s a three-candle pattern, made of a green candle, followed by a small red or green candle that opens above the previous close. The third candle is a bigger red candle that closes in the body of the first candle.
Bearish candle patterns
Simple Moving Average (SMA) and Exponential Moving Average (EMA) are an average of the closing prices of the last N candles. N is the number that you select in the settings of the indicator. EMA is a moving average that gives higher weights to recent prices. Thus, it reacts more quickly to the changes of the price.
Moving averages are an important analytical tool used to identify trends and the potential for a change in an established trend. The bot has two ways for determining the trends:
  • consecutive values - the SMA/EMA must have N consecutive SMA/EMA values in the choosen direction (N is defined by you);
  • uptrend/downtrend - the SMA/EMA should have risen or fallen by N percents and most of the values in that rise or fall must be in a pronounced direction (N is defined by you). The reversing condition also uses this type of trends.
Possible strategies are a crossing strategy or a strategy with reversing SMA. You can combine SMAs with different periods or on different timeframes. You can also add their trend condition as an additional confirmation to other rules. Run the Optimization to find the best parameters.
SMA and EMA strategy and results
The Relative Strength Index (RSI) measures the size of recent price changes to evaluate overbought or oversold conditions. RSI can have a reading from 0 to 100. The 0 corresponds to extreme lows of the price ("oversold"asset) and 100 to extreme highs of the price ("overbought" asset). Popular RSI strategies include buying when the RSI is crossing its lows from bottom to top and selling when crossing its highs from top to bottom (a.k.a. reversing). Or you can combine it with SMA, Stochastic and other instruments.
RSI strategy and results
The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) has a MACD line and a signal line. The MACD line is the result of subtracting a slow moving EMA from a fast moving EMA. The Signal line is an EMA of the MACD line. You can set the periods for all EMAs in the settings of the indicator. The indicator points whether the bullish or bearish movement is strengthening or weakening. A simple strategy with MACD is to buy when the MACD crosses above the signal line and to sell when the MACD crosses below the signal line. For better signals MACD you can combine it with SMAs or RSI.
MACD strategy and results
Bollinger Bands use standard deviation levels of SMA. They help in determining whether the price is moving in its highs or lows. BB work very well in combinations with other instruments.
The BB Squeeze occurs when volatility is low and the bands narrow. A squeeze is ofthen followed by high volatility and therefore big moves in either direction. Once the bands are in a squeeze, a subsequent band break is the start of a new move.
Bollinger Bands strategy and results
Keltner channel uses an average true range of the price and EMA. The "multiplier" sets how many times the ATR will be added to/subtracted from the EMA to form the upper and lower band of the channel.
The channel is in a squeeze when volatility is low and the channel width is small.
Keltner channel strategy and results
The Stochastic oscillator is a momentum indicator that ranges between 0 and 100. The 0 corresponds to extreme lows of the price ("oversold"asset) and 100 to extreme highs of the price ("overbought" asset). The indicator consists of two lines: one reflecting the actual value of the oscillator calculated for the price, and one reflecting its simple moving average. 
The Stochastic RSI is calculated with the RSI values instead of the price. This makes it more sensitive to price changes and gives it advantage in catching trend reversals.
Stochastic oscillator strategy and results
The Momentum determines the strength or weakness of the current price movement. It identifies when the price is moving upward or downward and the force of the movement. 
The indicator can be standard or smoothed.
Momentum strategy and results
The Momentum Squeeze is a combination of Bollinger Bands, Keltner Channels and Momentum. During periods of low volatility, Bollinger Bands narrow and enter inside the Keltner Channel. Bollinger Bands breaking from this squeeze is a strong signal for big price movements.
The squeeze is displayed as black dots on the histogram zero level. When there is no squeeze the dot is empty (white).
