Let's start with a background of my arbitrage trading history... During the last few months of 2017 I started noticing huge spreads occurring quite frequently in crypto markets in certain digital-currency pairs just during the 2017 Bull run. I watched a few and tested a few small trades before investing big money in them and surprisingly I made an average of 20% every single time in a matter of minutes.. I did a total of about 10 and I never lost on a single arbitrage deal I ever traded.. The only problem was I was not able to find them easily which is what led me to creating my very own arbitrage platform so I could be alerted to these arbitrage occurrences in real-time. I developed a pretty good strategy I 'd like to share with everyone...

⏰ Be Ready at all times

* having money in USDT ready at all times on the exchanges you are comfortable arbitraging on

* get an arbitrage alert platform that gets you the info you need to see the quickest

* once you spot an arbitrage opportunity or get an alert act on it as fast as you can



🤔 Follow this quick checklist:

✔️ act on HIGH VOLUME arbitrage opportunities (unless you are investing small amounts which is supported by the current volume)

✔️ act ONLY on arbitrage opportunities based on profit potential of 13% or more

✔️ MAKE SURE WALLETS ARE ONLINE on both exchanges

✔️ buy as many coins you desire from the exchange it is selling much cheaper while paying attention to make sure the spread still exists by checking the exchange it is selling for at a much higher rate

✔️ once you are done accumulating, transfer to the other exchange and sell as fast as you can


>From my experience I was able to transfer most ERC20 coins in 7-10 minutes time and sell them pretty fast (40k worth) over a few minutes time. Some coins are known to transfer fast like XRP, ETH, Nano, etc. so it is wise to be familiar with coin transfer times. There are some like BTG that transferred on average of 15 minutes to 30 minutes although one time it took 3 hours but I was still able to make at least 18% or more every arbitrage opportunity I ever acted on.

❓ Let's talk about why arbitrage opportunities occur?

A seasoned trader will understand that most coin prices begin to rise when breaking certain resistances and trend lines. News will sometimes create arbitrage opps but they are mainly caused by huge money being pumped into coins by institutions. They are usually the start of bull runs. Last December we seen that most coins chart displayed extremely bullish patterns. Once they broke resistance it usually rockets up to a higher price and usually starts forming a new pattern that will allow the price to go even higher. The amounts of cash flowing into coins at a much faster rate creates a spread between exchanges which creates an arbitrage opportunity.



🐋 Let me debunk the misconception that one whale can eat up all the volume for himself using an arbitrage opportunity as an example

One example I would like to use is when ADX/BTC was pumped up over 65%. It was trading for $1.19 on Bittrex and $1.47 on Bittrex which is around a 25% or more price spread between the exchanges. The 24 hour volume on ADX/BTC on Binance alone was over $51 million dollars most of which was traded during the arbitrage opportunity.

 .

That is a ton of volume for literally thousands of people to make a profit from by swapping these coins between exchanges. I usually trade around 40k at a time during these occurrences and I have no trouble getting my orders filled in minutes while transferring and selling on the other exchange.

📈  Arbitrage opportunities are common before the start of and during bull runs

Arbitrage occurrences usually occur at the beginning of bull markets and we are beginning to see them occur more and more on high volume exchanges. This is how we see the market caps rise and prices of coins go up so quickly...  Today there was another that occurred for ticker DNT/BTC this time it had even more volume roughly $70 million dollars worth on Binance alone. Unfortunately I was watching a movie at the movie theater so I wasn't able to act on the alert I received.

Feel free to ask me whatever questions you wish! Here is the arbitrage app I created http://arbiswap.com also here is a medium post I wrote that goes a bit deeper https://medium.com/@chasarcaulon/why-arbitrage-spreads-occur-in-cryptocurrency-and-how-to-trade-them-like-a-pro-51869422c5d5. I obviously am quite familiar with arbitraging and it is the only type of day-trading I personally do so let me leave this disclaimer...
