There is no perfect pair. Even with our assistance, you need to analyze the market on your own before choosing a trading pair. Sema has two powerful tools to help you, backtested robots and Trading ideas, which you can use as options source. You will find the most important trading pair parameters here.
The most crucial trading pair’s parameters are:
- Liquidity: sufficient trading volume to enter and exit a trade
- Informativeness: enough basic information about the company, market, or industry to decide to start trading
An uptrend or downtrend is essential, as the mechanics of the algorithms’ work consists of cycles of price averaging and closing trades according to the settings the users choose. Therefore, although the DCA strategy generally helps traders select the optimal entry point for the transaction, price change in a specific direction is necessary for profit.
