What I Learned: (My Current Due Diligence)

  1. Research the market pair.
  • What is the average volatility of this pair? Use the Average True Range Indicator.
  • Were there incidents of extreme volatility that go beyond the average?
  • How often do these extreme volatilities happen?
  • How will your bot react to these extreme volatilities? Do they act as mine did, buying high and selling low? Or are they prepared to react properly?
