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 with our Bitcoin Devil - Market Segment Indicator - CryptoHopper. Also, we cover the A.I. Feature that is available for Hero subscriptions.
About our strategies
We use a wide range of different strategies developed for specific market situations. This is so that our customers can create their automated trading system based on their risk management and fundamental analysis. For a set-and-forget set up there is the possibility to subscribe on our Copy Bot or on our TradingView signals!
Four different market segments
We divide our strategies into four different market segments based on moving averages plotted over a daily and a 4-hour timeframe. Each one of our strategies is developed to work optimally in particular market sentiment.
We distinguished our segments on the following sentiments:
GREEN: Major trend Bullish
RED: Major trend Bearish
PURPLE: Secondary trend Bullish
YELLOW: Secondary trend Bearish
Swing trades can be made to accumulate more profit over a longer period of a trade. Swing Meister is developed for this specific purpose. Trades are only placed when the market is Green and Purple. Being sold when the market goes sideways to lower the risk of a bearish breakout.
Example Swing Meister with buys and sell signals.
Red and yellow mean long-term bearish and short-term bearish. You can only use conservative strategies. Volatility Hero is developed to create profits by scalping altcoins in a bearish sentiment by aiming to trade deep bounces.
Example Volatility Hero with trailing stop loss settings:
Green and purple means long-term bearish and short-term bullish. Indicating the sentiment is bullish and prices can go up fast. You can deploy a strong aggressive scalper to make many short trades.
Example Bull Rider with trailing stop-loss settings.
Altcoin Scraper can be deployed by the following market segments. Red and purple (long term bearish but short term bullish) or green and yellow (long-term bullish but short-term bearish are both Indicating the sentiment is going sideways.
Example Altcoin Scraper with trailing stop-loss settings.
Crash accumulator is a strategy that is specifically developed for two purposes:
1. Aim to protect your portfolio by giving out sell signals when the market is overheated. By combining multiple indicators on different time frames this strategy detects when the market is likely to have a sell-off.
2. Aim to accumulate more amounts of your favorite hoddle projects by using tactical DCA entries.
Example Crash Accumulator, Long & Shorts:
A.I & Trend Strategies
With the A.I feature on Cryptohopper, our strategies can be combined based on 'Trend strategies'. The basis of the trend strategies is the A.I Trend – Bull Market and the A.I Trend Bear Market. Each respective for the major trend.
Other Trend Strategies can be used for extra trend confirmation on certain time frames and extra tweaks. The Trend Strategies are ranging from a 4-hour timeframe too – 30-minute timeframe.
Based on A.I backtesting, the A.I determine how high the strategies have scored in the past. You can determine the scores yourself and how high the percentage of a strategy must have scored in the past to be seen as a positive signal. For example: A signal must be at least 90% accurate based on the previous backtest. A good way to see the A.I. feature is that it is providing an extra layer of validation. However, past results don't guarantee future performance!
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 different 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.
