Pure BB no buys. Why? (Chart)
« on: July 13, 2017, 10:34:49 PM »
So I've been testing pure BB the last couple of days. Have gotten some buys and sells, but on some pairs really nothing at all, which was indeed very baffling.

My settings were
  • lowBB 14 highBB 23
  • BUYLVL 3 GAIN 3
  • Delay: 7s
  • Intervals: default 0.02 / 0.04
Here is a chart from a pair, BTC_ZEC that didn't trade at all for 14+ hours! It's 15-min candles with standard bitrex BB, and I've highlighted the spots where I would expect gunbot to trade.



So, after roughly 4000 cycles, not a single trade?? Come on!

My assumption is that the bot, after all these cycles, still uses GAIN, which of course don't make any sense. Or does it?

Please help me explain this, to better learn how gunbot thinks and operates.

As long as the buy price calculated with GAIN (using BUY_LEVEL 3) is lower than low BB 14, it'll use GAIN.

Apparently it was meant as a safety measure.

Try setting BUY_LEVEL: 0.1 to force GAIN out of the way of your buying strategy.

Same for me.. Not one trade, and support tells me to learn to config better that the preconfigured trade profile is only example
