Setting the total capital value for the bot
You can enter the value of capital for the bot in any currency, the word CURRENCY is not important here, but VALUE, which is the value of capital for the bot expressed in any currency (e.g. in USDT or e.g. in EUR or e.g. in PLN), so it does not matter here currency, or rather its value.
To enter the correct capital value for the bot, you must add up the free funds of the currency on the exchange and add the amount share of the capital of all positions in the bot to this value (visible in the 'Share capital' section in the 'Shares' tab, 'Share capital all items on the table').
The above calculated value should be entered at the top of the 'Actions' tab in the 'Bot total investment limit' field (of course, by preceding the value with its currency, e.g. 'USDT =' or 'EUR =' etc.).
Example: If we play USDT with the bot, we check its free funds on the stock exchange, these free funds are added to the value shown in the 'Share of capital' item 'Share of capital all items on the board'. Enter the sum into the 'Bot total investment limit' field at the top of the 'Actions' tab. Remember to add up values expressed in the same currency, e.g. (USDT + USDT) or (EUR + EUR) and not (USDT + PLN).
Don't play with all your capital
Do not exceed the share of 20% of the equity in the parent positions because if the market drops, there may not be enough capital to rebuy each parent position and you will be left with negative positions (you can find this information in the 'Stocks' tab in the 'Share capital' section).
The capital used is on the bot's offer board, they are open positions and at any time exposed to drops and thus losses, the smaller part of the capital hangs in open positions, it is safer.
If the stock market drops, there is always 80% of capital left to continue playing at lower prices. Otherwise, you will freeze all your capital and stop earning.
On the offer board, next to each item in the 'Capital' column, you will see the percentage of capital used for that item.
Do not buy the same currencies too often (rebuys)
By doing frequent rebuys on small differences in exchange rates, you fill your currency with capital that may one day run out. If such a packed coin suddenly drops significantly, you will need two or three times as much capital as you have already put in this currency to try to rebound this coin.
As you can see, such a coin is like a ticking clock and you do not know if it will sometimes continue to fall and plunge the entire capital. For the safety of capital, it is better to divide the game into levels (zones), zones of larger declines, e.g. -15% or e.g. -20%.
The rebuy parameter set to e.g. -15% will allow you to limit the number of rebuys to one for a larger drop zone. Just wait and either a coin from -7%, but it will return to the plus (within a few days) and will sell or it will drop to the second zone below -15% and then you can enter safely with one rebuy and earn this coin with this coin by doing rebuys and selling it at a profit and so on and on until we return to the first zone of the initial game when we have no coins with minuses.
Be careful with the DCA option
This point mainly applies to point 2 ('don't buy the same currencies too often (rebuys)'). If you have DCA turned on, not only you can not play the grid with small rebuys, but you also merge all rebuys into one position with capital
It is enough for the stock exchange to drop significantly and you will need 3 times more capital to rebound such a packed coin. This is a quick way to break point 1 ('don't play with all your capital').
Do not turn on StopLoss and sell off positions, or do it consciously by observing smartloss
After many experiences, we know that stoploss trading generates more losses than gains. The SPOT exchange is not a LEVER to hedge each time you open a position. You will see that most of the currencies will reach -3 or -4% or even -10% before they exceed 1% profit (TakeProfit).
However, if you want to secure the coin so that it does not fall into losses, set the SL later, when you see that the coin is, for example, + 4%, then set the SL in this position to, for example, + 3% and you will have a secured decline of the coin so that it sells positive .
Another good option instead of SL is setting MinTP to the minus, i.e. when the coin has dropped to -20%, let's not sell it at -20% and let's set MinTP to -15% to sell the coin at a loss but with a recovery of 5%, i.e. the coin will sell itself at - 15% (or better when there is a higher rebound) instead of having to manually sell it at -20%
Currencies should only be traded at a loss when we are generally strong in profit, this can be checked in the 'Stocks' tab in the 'SmartLoss' section. If our profit is significantly many times higher than the losses, we may be tempted to sell off one item manually at a loss.
However, it is always worth waiting as much as possible before selling off the position, after 10 or 20 days the position can sell itself profitably until then and during this time you can earn on other positions. Just be patient.
Don't keep dozens of open positions on the board
Instead of keeping dozens of open positions on the board, increase the BID amount per position and lower the position limits in the 'Settings' tab. The fewer positions on the board, the more you will control the currencies you have, the faster you will react, the more you will focus on important currencies, you will get to know them better, you will see their charts on the stock market on many candles at different candle periods.
Don't keep currencies for profit
Change your habits, you no longer play the stock market manually and use a bot. The bot is designed to do a lot of transactions and close positions as quickly as possible so as not to be left with your luggage. If you have profitable coins, try to sell them by setting a lower TakeProfit.
The more trades you do, the more profits will be locked in the statistics of closed trades. Trades sold are already approved and no one will take them anymore, while holding positions on high profits you are on the needles all the time, you do not know if the coins will fall tomorrow and after the drops, the bot can open new positions and earn while you are still holding positions for weeks positive.
Set the BID amounts (ATH, MID, and ATL) in an exponential ascending way
Currencies bought on the hill (ATH) after large drops often do not return to this rate, so it is worth setting the BID ATH amount to a very small value and after a large decrease you will not feel a loss.
Currencies bought down (ATL) usually break up after some time, so it is more certain that the bot will sell the currency at a profit. So let's set the BID ATL amount much higher.
Currencies bought in the area between the hill and the bottom (MID) are a bit less risky than buying on the hill, however, the MID amount should be set only slightly higher than the BID ATH amount but not more than half of the BID ATL amount.
Don't play multiple FIATs
Playing on many FIATs, you can lose yourself in information about the capital limit. If you have limited capital, it is better to keep more on one FIAT for the bot, thanks to which you will easier control the use of capital point 1 ('Don't play with all your capital').
Choose one FIAT currency (e.g. USDT or BUSD or BTC etc.) that you will buy the currencies with. Otherwise, you will get lost and you will not know how much capital you have already used on the board. However, if you want to play on several FIAT capitals, it is recommended to set up separate Intralogic bot accounts and play each of them independently.
