  1. Thanks for the insights @JASCoder. How are you able to backtest on 1m charts? Did you register the history over a given timeframe yourself? Because I haven't found a good provider of datasets on any chart other than the daily (1d).
  2. Yup. If only I had my XRP on Bitrue at the time of snapshot. I would've sold my 15% now for 0.25 and rebought at 0.025 when the FLR are actually airdropped (because the price will initially tank)
  3. That's not true. The ratio is set, and based on a number including the "unclaimed". Whatever is still unclaimed 6 months after the snapshot will be burned.

  5. Holy crap, I just found out (due to a typo) during backtesting that if you would've used the RSI inversely (buy when overbought and sell when oversold), that you would've made almost twice the money since 2014 than when using it 'correctly'. Numbers are ran with 100.000 start money, chart is daily. Correct (end up with 550154 worth of XRP and 23342 cash, 573496 total): Inversely used (end up with 941106 cash): Buy and hold would've made you a good 5.7 million btw
  6. I'm using Python. Relatively easy to learn (or so I've been told, it's the only coding language I know) and very much suited for financial situations. Today, I've been following along with this guy. Basically you can type what he types, and it should work. I think he even shares his code/projects on github. He has a shit ton of video's, so if you'd rather write a bot to trade options on RobinHood, he's got you covered as well Good luck man, I started another, more general Technical Analysis thread yesterday, because I basically know jack sh*t about it. Feel free to join in on the convers
  7. Hi everyone, Since I'm locked up in my house because of Covid, and I needed yet another programming (Python) exercise, I decided to throw away my prejudice about TA, and start working on a trading bot. I think we can use a more general TA topic to prevent spamming in the BTC and XRP topics. Mods, please let me know if you disagree So, to kick things off, over the last few days I've been reading Investopedia, reading about all the indicators that I see others use: Bollinger bands, MA (moving average), EMA (exponential moving average), MACD (moving average convergence divergence), RSI (re
  8. I've been thinking about starting a general TA topic, might just do it after this. I guess coming up with an algorithm that suits your wants and needs is very difficult. Some want it to trade (very) actively for them, chasing every possible flip, some are okay with just sitting back and letting it trade on the daily over years. I've just backtested my first (very basic) algorithm in excel on the daily chart, starting may 5th 2018. Got to 230% gain over the whole timeline, without finetuning. Quite pleased with that to be honest... I based it on the differences between MA20 and daily close, a
  9. Hi guys, Before I start a whole thread for a few questions: I am just starting a new personal build project in Python; an XRP trading bot. Nothing fancy, I want to use a few TA indicators to either buy/sell/hold on a daily/hourly schedule. Unfortunately, I've got very little experience with TA. I've been reading up the last few days (thanks Investopedia!), and doing some very simple backtesting. I'm currently thinking about using the EMA's for 8 and 21 days, MACD, RSI and perhaps Bollinger bands (haven't read into these yet, but I see them often). What TA indicators do you guys use?
  10. My mistake. I agree with you, it's bull. But that's unfortunately what you get in an unrelated market; massive speculation.
  11. Because the SEC doesn't care about tps and costs. They care about securities and dealings that look like security dealings.
  12. Society innovates/changes faster than regulatory bodies can keep up with. It's therefore easier for them to leapfrog the regulations. Unfortunately, this means that they're basically always behind the innovators, that clearly need the regulations. What stings, is the dickish move to then sue the innovators for applying the older, existing, but not perfectly fitting regulations to whatever they were doing.
  13. It's a classic examle of Occam's Razor: The simplest explanation is usually the right one The SEC exists to enforce specific rules. They think Ripple didn't abide by the rules, so they sue.
