Dollar Cost Averaging (DCA) is a trading strategy where the trader divides the total amount of trades across periodic purchases of a target asset. Traders deploy this strategy to reduce the impact of volatility on their overall purchase, and the DCA Bot is the main attraction of the 3Commas platform.

To find out how safe your DCA settings are and how many funds are required for each safety trade, I have programmed a DCA Safety Orders Calculator.

To get all the data calculated for you, replace the numbers in the orange fields of the table with your desired DCA Bot settings:

When the calculated Safety Factor shows a score of "2", the price should revert to only half of the initial order and reach a Take Profit of this deal. If the Average Safety Factor shows a score of "2" or higher, that is a good sign.

If you receive negative numbers or "DIV," your settings are against the rules of maths. For example, you cannot lose more than 100% of a long position in the same deal, so the max deviation is 100%.
