Welcome to our Strategy Guide!
The purpose of this guide is to give more insight and to go more in depth into our marketplace strategies & how to combine them in the Cryptohopper A.I. feature.
We divide our strategies into three different segments. Each segment aims to work optimally in a particular market sentiment. Segments can be combined with the A.I feature on Cryptohopper by using A.I trend strategies.
When the primary trend goes up, we can speak of a bullish sentiment. Strategies that fall under this segment are more aggressive and therefore issue more buy signals. Because the trend goes up there is more profit to be made on each trade. Therefore, like most traders, are strategies are using 'swing trading' tactics. The associated settings that you can find in our template (USDT Base currency) are aimed at generating as much profit as possible by using signals that are meant to hold assets for a longer period of time.
When the primary trend goes down, we speak of a bearish sentiment. This is a difficult market to trade in and to generate profits. Many traders do not trade when sentiment is bearish. It's a personal consideration if you want to trade in a bear market. Green candles are few and red candles are many.
Because of this, the strategies under this segment are a lot more conservative and give out fewer buy signals than the bullish strategies. The sell signals aiming at generating either small scalps, short entries and exits, or trading ‘bounces’. When the price has dropped a lot and an asset is bought back aggressively.
This is the most difficult market to trade in. All our strategies can be applied in a sideways sentiment. Use basic Technical Analysis to determine the market sentiment. To learn more about Technical Analysis read our Technical Analysis Guide!
BTC base currency strategies
BTC SCRAPER and BTC HERO are strategies that are specifically developed to trade with BTC as base currency. BTC as base currency is more difficult to trade due to the extra volatility that is involved in trading two unstable coins. We recommend these strategies only for pro traders.
BTC SCRAPER is developed to scalp altcoins in every market sentiment. Trading the secondary and minor trend.
BTC HERO aims to trade bounces in the secondary trend.
A.I & Trend Strategies
With the A.I feature on Cryptohopper, the different segments can be combined with each other on the basis of 'Trend strategies'. The basis of the trend strategies are the A.I Trend – Bull Market and the A.I Trend Bear Market.
Other Trend Strategies can be used for extra trend confirmation on certain time frames. The Trend Strategies are ranging from 4 hour – 30 minutes.
Based on A.I backtesting, the A.I determines how high the strategies have scored in the past. You can determine the scores yourself how high the percentage of a strategy must have scored in the past in order to be seen as a positive signal. For example: A signal must be at least 90% accurate based on the previous backtest.
For more information, see the Cryptohopper documentation.
Unfortunately, Cryptohopper's A.I. can't handle a different validation time for each strategy. Because of this it's recommended to always have the configurations for a Bearish sentiment if you want to trade everything together.
To get the most out of the A.I feature, there is the option to create a differen A.I. for each market sentiment. Using 'Swing Trades' as validation time in a bullish sentiment and 'scalp trades' in a bearish sentiment.
Automate this switch between a bearmarket A.I. and a bull market A.I. with a template switch trigger. To learn more about Triggers read our Risk Management & Triggers Guide
Our strategies with BTC as base currency are also compatible with the A.I. feature. Because both strategies are conservative their is no need to make distinction between a bullish and bearish sentiment.
