Managing Trading Automation Manually

Traditional manual management of trading automation software requires meticulous oversight and configuration:

  1. Pair Management: Identifying and selecting cryptocurrency pairs based on their potential for profitability, requiring ongoing analysis and selection adjustment based on market conditions.
  2. Strategy Application: Assigning specific strategies to each pair. These strategies are comprised of rules and parameters that dictate trading actions based on predefined conditions.
  3. Parameter Adjustment: Continuously tuning strategy parameters to align with evolving market dynamics, necessitating constant vigilance and quick responsiveness to ensure optimal trading performance.
  4. Trade Execution Oversight: Monitoring the bot’s automated trade executions, ensuring they align with set expectations and intervening manually to adjust or halt trading as market conditions dictate.

This process, while thorough, can be exceedingly demanding, requiring sustained attention and significant time investment, which can lead to missed opportunities in fast-moving market environments.
