For me an intresting thing about strategies is the fact if they can manage a dip of 15% or 25 % . Therefore i am calculating with about > 10 times a DCA.
Recently (from March 21 to March 26) BTC had a big drop, like 12%, and ETH dropped like 14% too. If I remember good, the highest DCA I saw is 6 or 7. I have just noticed that BNB dropped from 275 to 225, that’s like 18% drop, and the bot handled it with 6 DCA. You can check it in the last pic of this post:
1- Continuous Trading (CT) helps to reach to deeper DCAs as it has 2 effects:
a) It sells with partial profit when the price is below break even point. This way we can get some some extra base coins.
b) Sometimes after a CT sell, the price keeps dropping and we move to next DCA. Example, we reach to DCA 3 and we buy 100, then CT sells 50 with profit and then we buy 100 in DCA 4. In this case We have spent only 50 in DCA 3 instead of 100, so we are leaving more funds for deeper DCAs.
You can get more info about CT behavior in this thread:
2- Each DCA level triggers at a different point. For example, imagine DCA 1 triggers when price falls 0.25% below last buying point, DCA 2 triggers 0.35% below DCA 1, DCA 3 triggers 0.5% below DCA 2… This is just an example with fake numbers but I guess you got the concept. If DCA 5 triggers when price dropped 10%, it doesn’t mean DCA 10 will trigger when price dropped 20% as the distance between each DCA increases compared to the previous DCA. numbers are not real
