Are Crypto Trading Bots Worth the Investment?

TL;DR

  • Traders use crypto bots to leverage the advantages of crypto markets around the clock.
  • Bots are capable of executing timely trades, making trading more efficient.
  • Investors have to define the strategy in order to prevent liquidation and make profits.

Cryptocurrencies have a volatile nature, and trade happens around the clock. This makes it challenging to capitalize on all opportunities in the market. Even the most experienced traders have their human limitations, which force them to look into crypto trading bots that are able to execute trades much faster than humans.

Crypto trading bots work, but they are not magic boxes

With machine learning, crypto bots can now work more efficiently, understand more complex scenarios, and carry out trades to satisfy different trading styles and strategies, as they can now leverage data from news, social platforms, and traditional crypto markets to form a perspective and understand market sentiment, which was not possible before machine learning integration.

As a new user, you must remember that bots do work, but people do not make money with them by simply incorporating them, but they do make money because they have the knowledge and a trading strategy in place.

Cryptobots can help in different ways to reduce daunting tasks, for example, portfolio management, aiding trading decisions with market data, and order execution with the help of algorithms.

But it’s the user who has to set the parameters, and according to those predefined parameters, the bot will buy or sell cryptocurrencies. The point here to remember is that it’s not a magic box that will spit out gains, but it can definitely speed up the process and increase the trade execution rate when you are sleeping or busy. 

Better accuracy and execution, but risky

You don’t need programming skills to operate them, as now-off-the shelf bots only need your trading strategies, for which you might need to refer to high-frequency trading books the old-school way to understand the trading more than the bot itself.

Crypto trading bots can offer better market timing and trading accuracy, but only when they are set to the right parameters. The extremely volatile nature of the cryptocurrency market is actually about finding the right time to execute a trade and walk away with gains.

Another added benefit is that they eliminate human emotional disadvantages and discipline your trades. When making changes, traders, as human beings, can be affected by emotions, which in turn can affect the results.

The problem is that the computer on which you use your bot must be continuously running because if it turns off, the bot will not be able to execute, so you have to monitor it. A little bit of technical knowledge is also required to properly set it up, and the most important part is that the bot will access your assets, so opting for a bot that is from a reliable source or platform is a must, as otherwise, the bot can have hidden malicious codes embedded in it.

There are many crypto trading bots on the market; for example, 3Commas offers a variety of options and is suitable for beginners. Cryptohopper is also a famous choice and is a cloud-based trading platform. Pionex also offers a variety of crypto trading bots to automate the trading process. But as with all trading practices, investors’ due diligence before indulging in any bot or cryptocurrency market is necessary.
