Gunbot leverages the Exponential Moving Average (EMA) to devise a technique that seeks to purchase at the beginning of an uptrend and sell as prices start to descend. This is accomplished by observing the spread between fast and slow EMAs, with buying happening when the spread starts to shrink and selling occurring when the spread narrows again due to falling prices.
The spread is computed each cycle by deducting the lowest EMA value from the highest EMA. Beyond this primary indicator, various tools can be employed to fine-tune buy and sell signals. For instance, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) can be utilized as a supplementary signal.
The spread is determined each cycle by deducting the lowest EMA value from the highest EMA.
