5 Things to Consider When Choosing a Bitcoin Trading Bot

by Jhorton Jennifer Marketing Consultant

The cryptocurrency market continues to provide exciting investment opportunities, away from the mainstream financial market. Bitcoin has emerged as the most traded cryptocurrency due to its high levels of liquidity as well as volatility. However, given the extreme levels of volatility involved in the cryptocurrency market, Bitcoin trading bots are becoming a vital trading resource.

A Bitcoin trading bot or crypto trading bot is simply a piece of software programmed to analyze the cryptocurrency market and identify trading opportunities. Upon identifying such opportunities, the bots place buy and sell orders on behalf of users upon interpreting market data.

Crypto trading bots make trading decisions upon monitoring price movements and reacting to a set of pre-programmed rules. Some of the data that trading bots use to generate trading signals include cryptocurrencies volume as well as order price and time.

Below are some of the things to consider when selecting a Bitcoin trading Bot

Reliability

Reliability is an important factor to consider when selecting a Bitcoin trading bot. You want to pay for a crypto trading bot that you can rely on, all the time. The bot should be effective in scanning the cryptocurrency market all the time and identifying high probability opportunities capable of generating optimum returns.

In addition, the Bitcoin trading bot should not give downtime any chance as trading opportunities can crop up any time. Similarly, the bot should be up and running as long as the market is open, focused on scanning the market for trading opportunities.

While there is no way to know if a bot is reliable, feedback from other users via reviews can provide clear insights.

Transparency

You want to trade with a Bitcoin trading bot that has well-defined trading processes that are easy to study and understand.  The algorithms in use to generate high probability trading opportunities should be readily available and widely known to all users.

Likewise, the crypto trading bot should make it easy to understand how it identifies trading opportunities and how it makes profits.  By checking reviews online, you are sure to determine the transparency level of any top Bitcoin trading crypto in the market.

Security

Any top Bitcoin trading bot should adhere to best security practices that ensure clients' capital is protected all the time. While choosing a bot, you want to go with a  bot that does not get full access to your money or account. This way you will be able to limit the damage in case something goes wrong while trading

Cost

Cost is of the utmost importance when choosing a crypto trading bot.  A good bot should have balance when it comes to cost charged to identify and execute trades on behalf of clients.  Going with a cheap bot might necessarily not cut it. Likewise, an expensive bot might not guarantee the best returns.

Any top Bitcoin bot must have its interests in the form of costs aligned with its success rates.  In this case, the bot should be ready to cut fees in case of losing trades. Likewise, it should not be biased in charging over the top of winning trades.

Trading Strategies

Trading strategies that a Bitcoin trading bot deploys should ideally align with your trading goals. If you are a long term trader, then the bot should be able to deploy long term strategies such as position trading. Similarly, if you are a short term trader, the crypto trading bot should be effective in scalping or swing trading.
