Strategies from this repo are free to use. Feel free to update them to your likings. Most of them were designed from Hyperopt calculations.

Some only work in specific market conditions, while others are more "general purpose" strategies. It's noteworthy that depending on the exchange and Pairs used, further optimization can bring better results.

Please keep in mind, results will heavily depend on the pairs, timeframe and timerange used to backtest - so please run your own backtests that mirror your usecase, to evaluate each strategy for yourself.

The results above should serve as a general outline to demonstrate the number of trades to expect. Actual performance will be different based on various factors.

Share your own strategies and contribute to this repo

Feel free to send your strategies, comments, optimizations and pull requests via an Issue ticket or as a Pull request enhancing this repository.
