Enable buy for DCA, but disable buying new coins
« on: July 11, 2021, 02:22:39 PM »
Ever since all markets crashed 40-70%, Gunbot hasn't been doing anything anymore. I've got bags and my wallet doesn't have any change to buy more to DCA. I don't mind putting in a few fiat to allow some DCA. But I don't want Gunbot to buy 'new' coins, only DCA.

Is there a simple way to allow DCA-buying, but disallow buying new coins for which are configured, but you don't have any bags yet?

Remove/disable those coins first (before adding funds)...?

That's not a solution. The problem is that when a bag DCA's into a break-even sell, it frees up funds and, depending on the market, it might buy the coin again.

Say for example I got a bag of ETH right now. I add funds, it DCA's, the marketprice rises, Gunbot decides it's time to sell, now I've got even more funds. Now the rest of the market does nothing, so my ADA, DOT and LINK don't DCA. ETH follows by dropping 3% and Gunbot decides to buy. Gone are my funds to DCA and clear bags on other alts.

I want to allow DCA, but don't want to allow filling empty bags. As Gunbot is, should be, automated software, I feel it's incorrect to be required to check every few hours if it sold a bag.

Yes, and then you re-enable them...?

Gunbot is an automator, not AI... it's not like when you install MS Word your PC starts writing bestsellers for you, is it?

If you want, you can write your own AutoConfig to do the dis-/enabling for you: https://wiki.gunthy.org/how-to-work-with-gunbot/extras/autoconfig
