Sunday newbie questions.
« on: April 16, 2017, 02:17:17 PM »
Gunbot v2.0.4 Linux (Fedora here)

I've been using Gunbot for about ten days, and I'm having some problems, or rather I have questions.

I did several tests. Approximately three pairs: BTC_ETH, BTC_LTC, BTC_DASH, using the 1000trades strategy (1/1/1, 1/1/1, 1/1/1, 2/4, 0.02max/trade). But I found that the amount invested in my BTC portfolio was too low (<30%). So I increased the number of pairs up to eight: ~ 35% not enough! I added other pairs, and then I was banned by Poloniex (err: 429). I corrected :

BOT_SLEEP_DELAY: (1000) * 15,
BOT_MAX_LIFETIME: 999999999,
BOT_ON_FAIL_DELAY: (1000) * 5,

And all goes well with fourteen pairs, and increased BTC_TRADING_LIMIT to 0.025btc/trade. Now it is better ~50%. I would like 60-70%.

However I encounter another problem. I find that there are not many trades done, especially when I compare with the results here on the forum. As you can see, 25 operations in 24h.

It's sunday 15:20, no trades since 06:35.
Is this normal? I made a performance in 10 days of about 11% (0.23btc -> est. 0.256btc), is this the expected result. Is 1% per day normal?

I have browsed this forum, the wiki, replay several times. That's why I'm waiting for your best advice. I love Gunbot, Gunthar's work is great, and this community is friendly and starts producing nice stuff: Gunweb, spreadsheet, tutorials ...

Thank you all, and sorry for my bad english. I'm French and used Google Translate.
