Market Making Bot

The Market Making Bot will create two limit orders at a predetermined percentage away from the current price. When both orders are completed, the bot will again create two limit orders. The bot can maintain two sets of orders. A larger spread will result in fewer trades.
The performance will vary by configuration and market conditions. Backtesting will help fine tune your settings.
