WHAT IS THE DOLLAR BOT?
Trades a variety of cryptocurrencies using USD stablecoins (or other currencies) as collateral on the perpetual futures market.
This is a semi-automated trading strategy that longs and shorts the market.
This is best suited to people who are familiar with futures trading and navigating the FTX Trading platform.
The bot was birthed in Mid 2020.
The below data is actual performance as recorded by Wunderbit.

PERFORMANCE HISTORY (BACKTESTING)
Backtesting was conducted using the TradingView Strategy platform.
The tests covered a range of different market conditions, and different time periods to get a more diverse sample set. Two scenarios were compared: a Buy and Hold Strategy using equal amounts of BTC, ETH and XRP; versus running the Dollar Bot on these same coins over the same time period.

Backtesting software cannot account for trades that would have exited due to stop loss activation. As such, all backtesting data may differ to actual performance due to the inclusion of stop loss coding in the Dollar Bot strategy.
Backtesting and past performance cannot predict future performance.
Note: The coins included in the Dollar Bot strategy are subject to change depending on market conditions. The below backtesting data only tracks the performance of BTC, ETH and XRP following the Dollar Bot strategy. When other coins were included in backtesting, the performance was even stronger. The more conservative data has been included here, however, more extensive reports that include different coins and time periods are available on request.
HIT ME WITH SOME DETAILS!
Averages ~250 trades per year on a 24 / 7 market
Each trade has an automatic stop loss for protection
Diversified across a number of coins to spread risk and increase profits.
Copy-traders have access to their trades and holdings at all times - at no time does Blue Sky Breakout have access to, or the ability to view your capital.
Uses FTX Exchange in conjunction with Wunderbit.
Depending on where you entered the market cycle and initiated the copy-trading bot, you could start off with losses within the first few days and / or weeks. If you happen to start off at an ideal spot in the cycle then great, but to be transparent, you will encounter a period of losses at some time. It is very important to take a long term perspective and only invest an amount that you are comfortable with.
This is not a 'set and forget' strategy. If that appeals to you, simply buying and holding might be more suitable. Successfully following this bot requires a certain attentiveness to the Blue Sky Breakout announcements on social media. Occasionally, there will be times when copy-traders need to manually intervene with open trades. This will be announced through the Blue Sky Breakout social channels and will need to be acted on promptly to stay within the bot strategy.
It is also important to know that depending on your country of residence, buying and selling of cryptocurrencies is likely to be subject to tax.
