Keiko Short Signals on 3Commas
Shorting on 3Commas is only possible if you already own the coin you want to short. If you are familiar with our Long bot you will know that some days there are 100 and even 200 trades. The short bots currently perform much more slowly and trades tend to take longer to close.
How shorting on 3Commas works
Let us assume XRP is trading at $0.22 and you sell 100 XRP, this means you have sold your XRP and now have $22 (USDT) (there will be exchange fees). XRP drops by 10% and you then buy back your 100 XRP, but at the lower price of $0.198.
You now have 100 XRP, but you also have $2.20 (USDT) profit, or 11 XRP profit.

Shorting comes with its own risks, mainly that the coin could increase in value. So to use our example above:
XRP is trading at $0.22 and you sell 100 XRP, this means you have sold your XRP and now have $22 (USDT) (there will be exchange fees). XRP increases by 10%, so is now $0.242, so it will now cost $24.2 (USDT) to buy back your 100 XRP. It is possible to dollar cost average, but only if you own enough of the coin.
We do not recommend shorting with more than 10% of the owned coin, but obviously everyone has their own risk tolerance so no doubt some will trade with much more. For our example 1000 XRP would be a good amount of XRP to own if shorting using our bot and shorting using 100 XRP. You may also not own enough of a particular coin to be able to short because you do not meet the minimum trade size requirement placed by the exchange.
