Why did bot not buy or sell? (SOLVED)
« on: February 15, 2021, 03:03:54 PM »
Hi all,

I'm running WhiteGoblin's strategy (v3) found here.

I'm trying to understand why the bot didn't buy and sell in the 2 situations described below.

  • Sell Method: gain
  • Gain: 0.25
  • Trading Limit: 25
  • Min Volume To Buy: 1

  • Funds Reserve: 0.0001
  • Period: 1
  • Medium EMA: 60
  • Fast EMA: 30
  • Double Up Enabled: on
  • DU Cap: 0.1
  • DU Cap Count: 12
  • DU Method: 0.5
  • DU Buydown: 0.5
  • TrailMe Buy: on
  • TrailMe Buy Range: 0.05
  • TrailMe Sell: on

        "schedule": "*/3 * * * * *",
        "type": "manageOverrides",
        "debug": false,
        "enabled": true
    }
}

Situation 1: why didn't the bot sell?




The price went 0.07% above the "sell at" gain line ... Why didn't it sell?


Situation 2: why didn't the bot buy?





The price dropped below the DCA buydown of 0.25% ... Why didn't it buy?


Another (or maybe related) issue:

The bot only does 2 DCA's after the initial purchase.
The 3rd one doesn't work:



I can see a lot of errors in the log file, related to the DU. Maybe it has something to do with it?

Code: [Select]
AVERAGING DOWN!!!
The value of this coin dropped below bought price (0.05474200146359769). Proceeding with DU!
2021/02/15 20:00:25: Entering sell cycle
Price raising up: activating Stop limit!!!

I found out why it didn't buy.

Binance uses minimum trading value of 10USD.
Starting from an initial trading limit of 25, my DU's should theoretically be as follows:
* 25
* 50
* 10  <= but this was often times a little bit less than 10USD, let's say 9,8. And then the buy didn't go through

So I changed my trading limit to 25, and now it buys all the DU's.

Cheers
