General Discussion / Gunbot error on buy with Kraken
« on: January 27, 2021, 04:31:19 AM »
I seem to have found an annoying error in kraken which is preventing Gunbot from buying.

When gunbot attempts to place a buy order for .3781027650841647 eth, Kraken responds with an error 900 Insufficient funds.
I attempted this as a limit order manually and received the same error but it placed the order as well. See attached image.

If I place the same order but for .3781 eth, no error occurs and the order is placed.

While kraken shouldnt be giving that error, its confusing Gunbot. Gunbot should trim off the ridiculous number of insignificant digits. Kraken seems to like 7 or less to the right of the decimal.
While 4 to 5 digits may be significant in Bitcoin, it really isnt in any other coin

General Discussion / Can Gunbot be told to prestage a limit order?
« on: January 05, 2021, 10:06:04 PM »
I have seen a number of times when Gunbot has set a buy point and the price touches and then retreats from that price too quickly for Gunbot to notice and send an order. This happens on both buy and sell. This results in missed opportunities as you can see in the image below where the price went through the buy line then took off upwards. This is especially true in an active pair since gunbot only looks every 30 seconds or so

If Gunbot would simply set a limit order at the price that it has set for buy and/or sell then the exchange would take care of executing the actual order. Orders are easily cancelled prior to execution so I cannot see any technical reason to not do this. Its much sloppier to be sending in market orders as slippage will occur and orders are processed in fifo order so a market order is going to sit at the back of the line behind limit orders increasing slippage

General Discussion / Insufficient funds on sell

I had a trade today with a trailing stop. When Gunbot attempted to close the order with a sell it kept getting the error below. I manually closed the order on Kraken for good profit but the fact that I manually had to do it is concerning.

Technical Support & Development / Error on Kraken when attempting to sell
« on: January 24, 2020, 02:34:33 PM »
I was wondering why gunbot was not buying or selling as prices passed the sell and buy points.
Today I was watching and caught the following error.

At this point Gunbot is doing nothing useful so I am just manually trading.

I have adjusted mvtb and mvts and is makes no difference. I assume the mvtb and mvts values are setting the amount of the base currency to transact.

General Discussion / Gunbot should be trading ?
« on: September 10, 2019, 08:38:42 PM »
Based on the attached image, The buy price is 10,180 and the current price is below that. I would think that Gunbot should have done a buy, but it doesnt, it just sits there watching price go up and down. I have set this up according to 'The way Gunther runs it" so I would think it was set up correctly. I am however still trying to figure out the best combination of settings.

Any thoughts or feedback would be welcome

Currently the bot checks every so often to see if the price has reached the buy or sell threshold. If the bot is only checking every couple minutes, it will miss an event that happens during that time. I just had the bot miss the opportunity to sell a coin when a single candle spiked above the sell threshold. The problem was that the price didnt stay up there long enough for Gunbot to notice. If the Gunbot had placed a standing sell order at the sell price, at the time it did the buy, POLO would have executed it regardless of whether the bot is checking or not.

I am seeing this error in the logs and the bot is failing on all coins.
My Gunbot is running in a VPS in Digital Ocean, San Fran.
Anyone know what this error means and how to get rid of it?
