USDT trades
« on: April 11, 2017, 12:59:50 PM »
i am using 1000trades on a linux machine.

i tried starting the USDT_BTC pair, and i got this message:

Code: [Select]
=== STOP LOSS GUNBOT STARTED at 2017/04/11 14:17:19 === current balance: 0.79497610 BTC ===

Looking for obsolete BUY orders. Ts:1/40

The moment i read the line that said "=== SECURITY MARGIN REACHED at 2017/04/11 14:17:22  === Currency decreased to the security level you have defined. Bot will sell all your coins and wait until currency recover its value" i panicked and stopped.

my USDT_BTC.config.js:

Code: [Select]
var config = {

//-----------------------------------------------
//   OTHER (might be deprecated/not in use)

};
 
module.exports = config;

i have this line set for the limit:BTC_TRADING_LIMIT: 50,// max amount of BTC balance to use for each pair
will that limit the bot to 50 USDT for trading the USDT_BTC pair? Or was it about to sell all the btc in the account?

TL:DR What setting should i tweak to limit the USDT_BTC pair?

Hi


Set your Security Margin to something around 20% and the warning will disappear.

or

hehe, you guys got me confused, from what i can tell, if i raise the security margin to 101, it will wait for price to crash 101% and then call the margin to sell all coins, while if i give it a value of 20 that might be too soon. Do i understand those values correctly?

But will the bot use the value i gave it in the "BTC TRADING LIMIT" line, in my case 50 USDT, until the end of the world(until security kicks in at least) ?

What i want to achive is give it  a limit of 50-100USDT to trade against btc (as a hedge), while i keep most of the btc in the account to trade with alts.

LOL

Where is the LOL emoticon?!


The first time I dealt in USDT market was several versions ago. At that occasion, it seemed that since USDT was inverted in proportion to BTC. So I set the margin to 20% and could trade normally.

What Gunthar says is obviously correct. If dollar crashes that much, our concern would be other for the world would be in severe crisis (if it's not already :D )

Just let Vincent Vega goes any side he wants to ^^
