Flash Crash Bot Overview

About

The Flash Crash bot sets pre-orders above and/or below a specified base price. Buy orders are placed at predefined price points that fall below the set base price. Conversely, sell orders are placed above this base price. When a buy order has been completed, the base price will be moved down and a sell order will be placed on the old base price. Conversely, when a sell order has been completed the base price moves up and a buy order is placed on the old base price.

The flash crash bot places orders above and below a user-defined base price. The range is determined by the base price. Orders are spread out by percentage or price. You can set the amount to be used for each order and how much time until an order refill occurs. The idea is to catch extreme flash crashes and pumps.

When backtesting the FCB, the bot will adjust the base price to the start price of the test period.
