I'm not sure how to best handle this (which TA's), but it seems logical that in order to maximize profits we would want to select pairs with sufficient volume, highest volatility, and highest percentage swings of that volatility. These should be able to be determined with various TA. Something built in along the lines of what Chirag Mehta has done here...

This request is probably outside the scope of Gunthar's request for TA suggestions but what is needed is a way to identify pre pump conditions, steady or slightly increasing volumes over time, walls being put up, etc. If Gunbot could identify these "storms" before they hit, then an option to auto enable that pair could trigger with predefined pump settings.

The last "market condition" would be difficult I think to pull off, if Gunbot could see SMA 50 on chart of Global Market Cap then sentiment could be determined by if SMA 50 is underneath then trend is up and market is good, if SMA 50 is above then trend is down and market is bad. This is eye candy but would be a nice overall signal to have.

Whenever BB are constricted and then open, BB theory does NOT work and does the opposite of what you expect...

Combine MACD 4C with BB to make BB more accurate...


Combine WPR and RSI, only when both indicators signal (leave their zone), trigger action.


Use TA's to bring back something like currencies.js 2.0, grades coins by volatility and percentage swings, something that looks at volume and walls to identify pumps with option to auto activate pair with predefined setting, and perhaps a weather meter showing market condition, etc...

Present version 3.3.2 the answer is no, you cannot trade on a pair presently active with balance. If you sold manually and completed the order you would be able to.

Next release cantidate 3.3.3 will have a new bag handling capability to aid with more quickly selling bags.

I'm not set up to trade on Kraken (yet) and this may not be the issue but the first thing that sticks out is...

 GAIN price to sell NaN

NaN is abbreviation for "Not a Number" so check the numbers in your sell settings, also check that you haven't deleted the comma at the end. Every variable in the settings files must end with a comma.

UPDATE: I updated the OP above from Buy: PINGPONG 0 to Buy: PINGPONG 0.00000001

I encountered some weird 3 way love triangle between BTC, ETH, & USDT where they were all interchanging amongst theirselves even though they had each been set to disallow buying. After searching for any comments that Gunthar had made in the past I came across his instructions to one user to use 0.00000001 in a similar scenario.

I believe the 0 was somehow blowing Gunbot's mind, as well as my own to witness it happening.

Ehy, thank you for sharing with us your knowledge, i'm a very newbie and i had some question...

1) I've already created my Pairs cuz are running now with a strategy, let's assume that i want to trade BTC_ETH with BB & BB , and BTC_ETH with SG SG, What i must do ??? just modify allpairs-params.js?

2) I have not any setting in allpairs params, is empty, what i must do? copy the BTC_XXX config. that is already running and modify the code by deleting BTC_XXX to make this works with all pairs?  "PINGPONG 0" must be replaced in Buy strategy, like this "BUY_STRATEGY: 'PINGPONG 0 " , or you must put 0 here " // PINGPONG
  PINGPONG_BUY: 0, // [DEFAULT: 0.000001] " ? Once that you have done it, i must replace the buy strategy of all my pairs one by one?

3)  Can you post some your own Allpairs config for help me what i must do for do that? i will understand more and i can copy and paste yours and modify the setting as i want

4) For starting the same pairs but with different config, how i must do? just with gadd or pm2 btc_xxx ecc ecc ?

Thank you in advise


You have an example ALL_PAIRS and also example individual pair files with defaults already included with your install. Make a copy of those files as backup and put in folder elsewhere. Then you can open ALL_PAIRS with text editor and change your active ones in your Gunbot folder (directory). My files won't work for you because I use a different GUI that formats them differently.

If you share pair files be careful to strip out your API key & secret!

ALL_PAIRS is the king, he decides over the individuals, so any settings you put in ALL_PAIRS overrides individual pairs.

You can put // in front of the lines you want disabled in ALL_PAIRS and the individual pairs.

So if you want one strategy across the board you can put your strategy in ALL_PAIRS, if you want individual strategies, then comment out strategy (or delete lines) in your ALL_PAIRS and set the strategy settings in your individual files.

I've realized a way to utilize PINGPONG in a manner that brings new found capabilities to Gunbot. If you are one who balks at the idea of managing individual pairs, then this will probably not be of interest to you, but if you don't mind a few minutes work up front, then you are in for a treat:

1. Create all of your preferred currency pairs (like BTC & USDT) through whatever method you prefer.

2. Remove (or better yet just comment out) strategy from ALL_PAIRS & add strategy Buy: PINGPONG 0.00000001 along with whatever Sell mode you prefer to individual pairs.

3. Open all of your multi currency pairs at once, yes that's right, all at once, BTC & USDT in perfect harmony.

Why? Because now you are in "Hot Standby" which means you will be polling and collecting data, but your multi currency pairs won't step on each other's toes because the overlapping ones are both set to Buy: PINGPONG 0.00000001 (meaning they'll never buy). Then you can change Buy: to whatever you prefer on one of the overlapping pairs without worry about putting them both into a feeding loop.

This means you won't need multiple exchange accounts. This also means when you see the market turn south and want to trade USDT, you won't need to wait hours for BB data to generate on your USDT pairs, they are "Hot" and ready. Also maybe you have pairs that you "sometimes" run, you can now have those hounds ready to release at a moment's notice as well. Want to try a new strategy out on just one pair? Check. Want to tune each pair for movement? Check.

For the last part of the title I mentioned Style!... subjective yes but if you can't appreciate the beauty that is Gunthy GUI then you don't have any :p

4. Buy Gunthy GUI...

Using Sjakil's elegant code, you have the means to easily toggle individual pair settings all from within one luxurious console masterfully crafted from the finest bits of zeros & ones to ever cross your screen... and now you are Gunning the Multiverse with Hot Standby and Style!

(Notice: No pairs were harmed or made to do battle with each other in the making of this thread.)

There is supposed to be a complete technical analysis kit in the next release so you should be able to use whatever you like when it comes out.

Please let everyone know the steps involved if you could. There have been several inquiries on how to do this and everyone would be most thankful to know how you did it.

Very informative, thanks for this! Any ideas on SMA?

Note: I have edited an earlier post both for brevity and stupidity, hopefully both edits were successful : )


These generally match closely to the trade signals that gunbot works with when using EMA based trades.
Anyone who knows more please add :)

[  ] Fib:
[  ] SMA: 12
[X] EMA1: 8
[X] EMA2: 16
[X] BB

Zoom: 2D (or 1D or 6H)  |  Candlestick: 15

May I ask how you arrived at this SMA? I have as of yet been unable to recreate the visual pattern with the above settings to match consistently with Gunbot's trades.

Thanks for the information that you have already provided us!

This is an EXCELLENT idea. I too would like to know Gunbot's criteria regarding many of it's decisions. I wish this information was readily available (it should be). Yes we could spend hours reverse engineering through perusal of the logs and trying to interpret/guess these answers but we should NOT have to do this. Much better to allow us the control to set ourselves.

I did see Gunthar mention on TG a couple of days ago that 5 was guaranteed trend and proven with backtesting. This may be a clue to present value used. I however also saw a member's response to this subject later claim 1 was enough to trigger STEPGAIN level that a reversal had occurred.

Technical Support & Development / Feature Request: Add SMA Variable
« on: July 10, 2017, 10:54:41 PM »
I have spent an enormous time trying to find the simple answer of what SMA Gunbot uses in it's calculations. Without this number we are flying blind when trying to visually strategize.

It would be nice for Gunbot to allow us to optionally set the SMA just as it allows us now to set EMA and Candles. This way we could know with whatever charts we were using that Gunbot would be deriving off of the same indicators as what we were actually seeing.

« on: July 07, 2017, 08:16:03 AM »
I don't have enough experience or knowledge to condemn Gunbot for this, if Poloniex or Bittrex is overwhelmed (they both are) then it would seem logical that a communication glitch could easily occur between Gunbot and that exchange. Brighter minds than mine have told me that this is an exchange issue. Don't shoot the messenger.

Reading the API for Poloniex at least, there is the ability to pull down 50,000 trades in one call with "trade history". It certainly seems doable.

I would like very much to be able to tweak settings and not have to wait several hours to see their impact. Is there some way that we could PLEASE get backtesting?

@Gunthar - I saw one of your posts where you gave us a link to TV where we could see what Gunbot sees?...

Another question - In the above chart you have setting of (ohlc4, 10, 20) but I thought we were setting as vwa?

Could you explain if there's anyway for us to do our own backtesting, it sure would cut down on your level of support requests.


Technical Support & Development / Re: How much pairs per API?
« on: July 07, 2017, 01:20:47 AM »
I'm only running 8 pairs on 1 API key and I'm getting 422 out the ying-yang. I've implemented the ALLPAIRS-params suggestions and restarted all my bots, also upgrading to the latest 3.3.2, and I'm still getting 422 every 5-8 cycles.

Do this ->

Security margin does NOT work, I have it set at 20 and have several bags at -24% it just doesn't sell

I see a lot of people running it at 5%, I seem to have far less bags now at that setting, but smaller profit as well. We need a "Magic Tune" button : )

It has to download and analyze enough data before entering BB mode. It runs in GAIN until it achieves enough data, this takes a LONG time. You can vastly improve speed by running a free proxy (works great) or pay for proxy (some extra cool features)

Here is the "simplest" explanation on BB...
