Cryptocurrency Indicators: What They Mean and Which Ones to Use

A Guide to Cryptocurrency Indicators

If you’re a relative newcomer to cryptocurrency trading, it’s natural to feel a bit intimidated by the thought of using technical analysis. At first glance, technical trading is a discipline that features a lot of unusual jargon and some fairly advanced-sounding concepts.

Yet the truth is that almost anyone can become an effective technical trader — you just need to build a proper foundation by learning the basics. Once that foundation is in place, even the more sophisticated analytical indicators will become fairly simple to grasp, allowing you to trade with a powerful new set of tools at your disposal.

Haasbot 2.2.4 has been released!

We have released Haasbot 2.2.4, which is a minor release to address the API changes to Huobi, Bittrex, and Cryptsy. Additionally, we have upgraded the whiteserver software to increase the speed of backtests and price data transfers by a significant amount. This release will delete previous price data, so be sure to give Haasbot some time when you first create a bot/first start it up, as it will grab all of the price data from our servers. It should take maximum 2-3 minutes to grab all of the data for each pair, but once you have the price data, its there and you are all set.

All you need to do is right click on Haasbot in the system tray –> Check for updates, and run the installer.

This build is also available in OSX and in Linux. If you have an active license and have an activated forum account, simply head over to the OS’ build that you would like to run and you will be good to go.

This will be the last update before Haasbot 2.3 goes into beta, as we need to put our effort into putting the final touches for Haasbot 2.3.

As always, if you have any questions or need anything, let us know!

Haasbot 2.2.1 Beta Build 1 Has Been Released!

~ All,

We would like to take a moment to thank our community and user base in being patient with us while we made numerous changes to haasbot 2.2. We have been working very hard on stabilizing our whiteservers to handle the load of our users and we are happy to announce that they should be extremely stable. In addition, this build has the numerous fixes which were needed for the Script Bots.

You can download and install the beta here: https://forum.haasonline.com/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=728

The only thing that we were unable to fix within a short period of time is BTCChina support, which we have suspended for the time being. We will work to correct this and re-integrate BTCChina support into Haasbot as soon as we can, but for now, please use either Huobi or OKCoin.com/cn for your cny trades.

Be sure to let us know if you find any bugs here: https://forum.haasonline.com/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=727

Thanks and best of luck with your trades! These are exciting times and now that the majority of the fixes have been done, we can get on with some of the more interesting features that are coming up in Haasbot 2.3!

[Indicator] (P)SAR added
[Indicator] Bollinger Bands added
[Indicator] SlowRSI added (this is a SMA over an RSI)
