in #steem11 months ago

We had a quick market fake-out with Bitcoin surging up to the mid $7K range, giving hope to investors that we might break $8K soon.

The prices of STEEM saw a slight rally as a result but quickly fell back to the Moving average after just a few days as the buying volumes have stalled.

For the past three days I did not make a trade but was able to put in a small buy order today.

Trading strategy rules:

  1. Use approximately 10% of the starting reserves (in BTC) per day to BUY STEEM when the price is BELOW a set value. In this case that will be the moving average (center line) on the Bollinger Bands using 1-Day candles on the chart. Each 10% chunk will be considered a "unit".
  2. Sell ALL STEEM when the price is above the upper range of the Bollinger Bands (1-Day candles), or 10% per day when ABOVE the moving average (1 unit).
  3. After 5 consecutive days of buying, reduce buy quantity in half (5% or 1/2 unit).
  4. If price is within 10% of the ALL TIME LOW, and there is 50% (5 units) or less reserve BTC, then I am allowed to "go all-in".
  5. "Buy below, sell above" is the golden rule.

With the Moving Average slowing creeping up as the price was dropping we have finally met in the middle with a small 1 Unit buy order. Moving Avg seems to be at 1818 Satoshis which is the exact price I paid.
