The Pump and Dump protection features prevent your bot from buying too high in case of a pump and selling too low in case of a dump.


🤔 What is a Pump and Dump strategy?

Speculative investors use the P&D scheme to artificially increase (or decrease) a coin's value. They aim to inflate the price and sell the coin at the pumped-up value. Once the target price is reached, they dump the price back within minutes. Some traders can benefit from this scheme, but the risk of instant losses when using the so-called Pump & Dump strategy is also very high.

How does it work?

The P&D protection is activated on bots by default. If the feature is active when the price moves rapidly, the bot will detect it and change the bot status to "Pump" or "Dump," depending on the type of your bot.


📑 Note: When a rapid price change occurs, the Trailing Up feature will not move grids up on Long bots, and the Trailing Down feature will not move grids down on Short bots (Buy the Dip).
