Signal Bot: Quick Start Guide

This guide includes suggested settings for trader who are using the Signal Bot with CBS signals for the first time.
Over time, we recommend that you adjust your settings to choose your own trading style.

Unlike Copy Trading, using a Signal Bot is not a completely hands-off process. While the average win rate for CBS signals is very high (90-97% on average) it is not 100%. Every trader will need to decide what to do when a bot position does not return to profit in a reasonable amount of time. Alternatives are:
manually intervene (add more DCAs. See CryptoTradingDev's YouTube channel for videos on how to do this.)
wait, possibly for a very long time
use a Stop Loss. There is no "perfect" stop loss value. We offer a suggestion here, but the market will change over time and the trader's tolerance of risk is also very important when choosing a value for SL.
manually intervene in most cases, and use a Stop Loss to catch markets with big dumps due to coin delistings, for example.

CBS Signals generally provide good returns over the long term. Some months will have drawdowns while others will have high profits.
