Stepgain follows the markets prices and trend, and buys or sells as soon as the trend reverses.
Assuming a trend reversal (from downtrend to uptrend) usually takes place close to the bottom of a price movement, this allows you to buy shortly after a price bottomed.
Similarly, selling takes place when an uptrend turns into a downtrend.
Buying with Stepgain is based on EMA, enabling Gunbot to start looking for a trend reversal after a set percentage below the lowest EMA is reached.
Trends are calculated automatically by XTrend and are visible in your logs.
XTrend results can vary depending on your setting for PERIOD. Using XTrend is optional, you can also have stepgain trigger purely on price reversals above/below the configured level.
