[Doc] What is being traded around the clock?

Something I disappeared a bit, I did not fully understand whether it is useful to keep such a diary or not.

It is possible to write everything in a row, every action does not make sense, but what kind of research and conclusions, thoughts, as well as problem areas ... Is this interesting to anyone and do I need it?

To develop a speculation strategydirectional movement: compiled rules based on a clean schedule, crowd behavior, adding only a ATR-style indicator (but no tails) to guide the size of the flipping point length and the protective SL in case of a sharp squeeze.

I wrote everything down firmly on the “paper” and threw the visual script on the Tradingview helper, drove it out with pens, the results are preliminary satisfied.

Now I am describing everything for my own self-written tester in Excel, so that I could drive away other tools and see how it shows itself. If ok, then everything depends on liquidity and non-correlation instruments.

And today, everything is bad with the cryptocurrency market, alts walk almost synchronously and there is enough liquidity for capital above $ 2 million only for ETH, XRP, LTC, BCH ...
In fact, trading with only 2 instruments, BTC and ALT.

How to adapt this strategy to a market where trades are closed at night or out, when the price may open below my SL, xs.

Closing at the end of the trading day is not an option, because the main movements will be in the pass and the commissions will gobble up all the profits.

Although now the idea has come to trade such assets, which is on different exchanges in different time zones. Are there any?
