Off hours trading

Hi folks.

I am interested in how automated your portfolios are. Crypto trading is unique in that it happens 24/7. What happens to your portfolio when a big moves happens at 3am your time? Have any of you written your own bots, or do you trust exchanges with your crypto in order to utilize positions and orders?

After looking at some exchange API documentation, it seems like creating a bot would not be that big of a challenge. But figuring out the rules that I want the bot to enforce is the real big challenge. It also seems that there would be a commitment to allowing crypto to hang around on an exchange.

I can’t be the only one. What do you guys do?
