R&D: First steps toward a Hummingbot AI assistant

The Hummingbot Helper repository is designed to explore, test, and refine the use of Large Language Models (LLMs) in enhancing the functionality and user experience of Hummingbot. We believe that these new technologies may synergize well with Hummingbot's trading engine, strategy frameworks, and connectors system.

Initially, we have set up a few research Jupyter notebooks to developing preprocessing techniques and effective LLM chains to assist users in running bots and efficiently answering questions related to Hummingbot's documentation.

Github Repo:

New Script: Crypto Volatility Screener

The new Volatility Screener sample script provides an new way to use Hummingbot: It conducts a detailed analysis of market volatility for multiple cryptocurrency pairs on a specified exchange, utilizing various metrics and indicators like percentage changes, Bollinger Bands, and standard deviation calculations.

The script is designed to provide periodic reports, making it a useful tool for traders looking to understand and capitalize on market volatility.
