Dollar Cost Averaging calculator for traders

Dollar Cost Averaging (DCA) is a trading strategy in which a trader divides up the total amount to be traded across periodic purchases of a target asset in an effort to reduce the impact of volatility on the overall purchase.

The main attraction of 3Commas is the platform’s trading DCA bots.

To find out how safe your DCA settings are and how much funds are required for each safety trade to be placed, I have programmed a DCA SAFETY ORDERS CALCULATOR in Google Sheets:

Simply replace numbers in orange fields of the table with your desired DCA bot settings to get all important data calculated for you:

How to optimize bots strategy and predict risk level

When the calculated Safety Factor shows a score "2", then the price should go back only half of the way from your initial order to reach Take Profit of this deal. An Average Safety Factor with score "2" or higher is a very good sign.

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

Please find a list of copies for same google sheet below where you can play your settings if someone is already using the main one:
