As I clone the trading logic everything from my winning Minute by Minute strategy bot into the world of forex and CFD with Oanda, I learned a few items that are ciritical.
1. Surprisingly CFD opportunity exceeds forex a by a long shot
2. Volume which leads to momentum is critical for ANY strategy to work
3. Software debugging from raw market data logs is the only way to see the patterns you seek. This eliminates a lot of noise as you hunt for the whale moves vs the tiny minnow ones.

There is no lazy way
If you plan to use some black box bot, you are pretty well wasting money. I say that because you most likely are looking for the quick easy way to make money at crypto. Guess again? Those days are over. Not only that, it means that you will need to work. You will need to full understand ‘under the approach’ of how these instrument flow. Yes they are valid. It is the volatility where you will make some great coin if you forecast the correct market direction. As a result, you will need to understand this with a good amount of learning. Sorry but I don’t think there is no other way.
