Haasbot – Arbitrage Trading for the Masses

Haasbot brings arbitrage trading, scriptable indicators and order bots to the public, and you can develop countless trading strategies with them.

Scriptable Indicators

Bot developers can write scriptable indicators in the powerful C# programming language. TA-Lib support is available for powerful Technical Analysis features crucial to any bot on the market. So, what are these magical scriptable indicators? Indicators in the trading world are tools to help predict the future based on the current trend of the market. While the future it predicts won’t help you to know when you’ll meet that special guy or girl, it will predict the future market so you can make an informed decision on your next trade.

Arbitrage Trading

Arbitrage trading allows you to use the price variations on each exchange to your advantage. When you see a favorable exchange rate between two exchanges, withdrawal funds to the new exchange to make a trade. Joris’ article, “Bitcoin Price Speculation – Lessons Learned From Trading Stocks,” is an excellent read. If you don’t understand what arbitrage trading is and what you need to look out for to avoid losing your money, consider reading it. Haasbot enables you to trade on BitStamp, BitFinex, BitTrex, Poloniex, Cryptsy, CEX.IO, Huobi, Kraken, Camp-BX, and BTC-E. Collectively they have markets for over 500 cryptocurrencies.

Order Bots

Order bots are what most people think of when they think of trading bots. Haasbot order bots create buy-orders and sell-orders based on your defined algorithm. When you need to make a trade within the same exchange, the order bot will perform that trade. Instead of sitting at your computer and trading away as your significant other leaves you for staying up all night, the order bot can attempt to fulfill your financial fantasies while you fulfill those of your significant other. Let the bot do all of the work and hope you don’t lose all your cash. If you program in a stop loss on your new bot, you can stop any losses from selling your coins at too low of a price. You define what “too low of a price” means to you.
