Newbie needs help with Starter Edition and Kraken (USDT-BTC)
« on: December 01, 2021, 09:06:15 PM »
Hi, I am new to Gunbot and just had my license activated yesterday.
I am connected to Kraken and want the bot to trade USDT-BTC with having some 150 USDT in the Kraken account. I am still using the default trading strategy (spotGrid), but there did not happen anythin within the last day. Can someone pls step forward and share his pair and strategy settings? I am pretty sure that i am having a cruzial setting wrong ... any help or hint appreciated.

Thanks,
Stephan

Hi, it would be needed to get more info about the issue. Are you getting any error message in the console? What's your Trading Limit and MVTS?

Sorry Aitor,
and thanks for your answer.

Pairs:
            "USDT-BTC":
                "strategy": "spotGrid",
                "enabled": true,
                "override":
                    "TRADING_LIMIT": "20",
                    "MIN_VOLUME_TO_SELL": "18",
                    "MIN_VOLUME_TO_BUY": "18"

Market:
        "kraken": {
            "type": "kraken",
            "key": "xxx",
            "secret": "xxx",
            "masterkey": "xxx",
            "mastersecret": "xxx",
            "market": "spot",
            "delay": "10",
            "TRADING_FEES": "1.5",
            "includeCoins": "",
            "filteredBase": "",
            "filteredQuote": "",
            "filteredPair": "",

            "pay_with_utility_token": false,
            "tick_interval": 30,

Are those market values correct for Kraken? I found some different values and was not sure ...

Thank you!

Hi Ste, I am a newbie myself but your fees seem really high - over 1 or 100%. I have mine set at 0.376 and that is over-egging it. My fees on site are 2.6% so should really read 0.26. If you take into consideration the high setting you have entered it may never trigger a buy/sale in normal trading conditions. Hope this helps you even if it is not the resolution.

I agree, check your fees, they are huge.

Hi all, thanks for your replies. I have corrected the fee values, but there still was no trading with USDT-BTC pair. After this, I tried USDT-ETH which works perfectly for two days now (although the ETH course crashed badly!).
I will give BTC another try, but for now I am fine.

Cheers,
Stephan
