I was at work from 9am - 10pm today. When I arrived home I thought I would be too tired to make progress on my tradebot. But after staring at facebook, reddit, and tumblr, I realized that I was wasting precious development time.
So I went at it. Skyy vodka with lemon juice, my third beer (had two at work), Trigun on Netflix, and the simplest idea of a trading algorithm— buy while the price is rising, sell when it’s going down.
I just started my bot on my test account which has 3 USD. If by tomorrow morning I have not dwindled my funds to less than .01 BTC or equivalent (minimum trade amount) I will consider this a good step towards progress.
Or maybe it will just crash in an hour…
