Introduction:
Hello! Iím Goblin an amateur crypto nerd for the last four+ years. Iím the same Goblin from the ArsTechnica Openforums as well the Monero community. Iíve been a miner, node operator, staker, day trader, & blogger across my crypto history. I started using Gunbot back around version 8 or 9 and still find it to be the most worthwhile investment for making profits in the industry. Thatís to say, putting the same amount of money into Gunbot will yield you more profits and safeties then putting it into mining, yield farming, or staking.

Itís because of this that Iím a believer in Gunbot, I want to see its continued success and development. We have a small but tight community, everybody is very helpful, and you should not fear joining us in the official Telegram groups. Itís where youíre going to find the most interaction, discussion, and meaningful conversation. Not to mention direct interaction with the staff, resellers, and market place contributors.

02/18/21 Update: Itís become important to note that I am not staff. Also, I do not have my own group or channel; Iím merely a user who hangs out in the official ones. I cannot grant you access to the official telegram groups; youíre going to need to request this from your reseller. You can find a list of the official groups here. Beware of anyone trying to sell you something, request account information, or even interact with you directly. The staff will not contact you first. I will not contact you first. Iím posting here to create a blog styled educational experience for new comers, thatís the end of it. Just be safe, use your head, and happy trading!


Disclaimer:
Hey Iím not a financial adviser. I donít work for any large firms. I donít have a background education in this. Iím a retarded autistic monkey on the same level as the guys over at r/wallstreetbets. In the last four years Iíve at times lost over twenty thousand dollars in my enthusiastic love of crypto. I have literally gone homeless and lived in a car over making bad decisions when it comes to life as a full time cryptonaut. (twice)

If youíre going to get into this for a career or even as a major part of your financial capabilities then take caution, do not play with more then you can risk. Markets crash, the losses always come faster then the gains, a dollar earned will be a hard painful journey but a fortune lost will come in the blink of an eye. If you want to keep waking up comfortably in your bed then never play with your rent / mortgage / survival money.


Intention:
The reason for this post today is to share how to setup the bot in the same manner that I run it. Itís also to encourage community interaction to create a better more profitable setup that we can all benefit from. I know there is more to be gained then how Iím currently trading though as Iím not a markets / scripting wizard. This comes purely from years of literally trying every possible way you can configure the bot and seeing what works and what doesnít.

That said this morning I was reading the official Telegram group chat and noticed people discussing the profitability of the very popular Grid strategy for spot trading. I have been thinking about moving over to it a lot lately and comparing earnings. Itís even gained a place in the newest versions of the bot by default so it must be pretty damn good. I read one person saying they were doing $100 in profit a day with $20k to work with. Another person said they were earning about $25 a day with $5k. Iíve personally got about $5k Iím working with at the moment and Iím doing $100+ per 24 hours on good days and $25+ on slow dreadful days.

I brought this up in the chat and was asked to post up my settings here and in the market place. I even had a nice little conversion with Pim (@boekenbox) the creator of Grid. The thing is, Pim and others are much more experienced traders then I am. My settings have been working out lately but have major flaws that do not work in all situations. Iím honestly not sure how lucky Iíve been lately compared too actual long-term sustainability. Grid looks to be good all around and is probably the better option. Though in the name of profits for everybody Iím here posting today. With any luck, weíll all make more money through open discussion & collaboration.

Settings Discussion:
These settings are made in an attempt to ride every single wave of the market as it ebb and flows. I mainly try to hit the sub percent trades but wanted it to move with the market as much as possible. This is why I use trailing instead of a set gain amount. Now you might ask, why are you still using gain over just setting up TSSL. Thatís because Iíve experienced issues over numerous versions when using TSSL with other trailing settings turned on. This is probably thanks to my lack of understanding of how one setting works with another and not the program itself. That said, everything works as I expect when I just use gain as a base then enable additional settings on top of it.

I think the reason Iím seeing such good returns compared to grid is simply because of the trailing activity. My average trade return is $1.7 though goes from $0.25 all the way to hero trades of $10+. It has a pretty extreme range as itíll get out of a market as soon as the tides start traveling in the opposite direction but still benefits from large spikes when they occur. Letís talk about a couple settings in particular. Buy Level, this is set at -10 so that it basically disables EMA protection. A couple versions back you use to be able to set this at 0 to disable it, as still noted in the Gunbot Wiki TSSL example description as a ďpure tsslĒ. Though somewhere down the line this changed and a setting of 0 just became zero percent below EMA instead of turning it off.

This has caused me a lot of trouble for a while now but when looking into Grid I noticed he was able to use -10 to effectively do the same thing. Now for people wondering why this is important. This allows for you to profit on the way up instead of waiting for the markets to cross back down below your EMA. This makes A HUGE DIFFERENCE to your earnings. Normally youíd be sitting through bull runs as there just wasnít a good deal to be had as the price will always be above your EMA lines. This allows you to keep purchasing and profiting no matter what the market is doing. I mean thereís only two options right? Itís either going to continue going up after a purchase which means youíre going to make money or itís going to go down which will allow you to buy more at a lower price. Why would you want to stop making money on the way up? When I look at peopleís screenshots from Grid, this is half the key to success IMHO.

This is why I wrote Ēalmost doesnít matter anymoreĒ as a note in my above settings as weíre effectively disabling it. Though I still like the settings as they are so I can watch trends live in the client. Now letís talk about the Gain setting. This is set to 0.25 though Iíve often ran it at 0.1. The reason for the increase is weíre using a trailing on sells of 0.05 which will run downwards past your sell at line as long as it doesnít also cross your breakeven line. This means in actuality at worse youíre going to sell for 0.2 percent profit. Thatís actually some considerable head room as you can run at half that (a setting of 0.15 or 0.1) and be able to duck out of markets sooner. SIDE NOTE: If youíre wondering why youíd want to do this itís because dumping your heavy bags and resetting your position at a small profit is often better than watching the markets tumble into the darkness while youíre still holding. If you empty out then your funds are free & the drop is nothing but a great opportunity to start the buy cycle again.

So back on track, the problem I run into is Iím doing market trades on Coinbase Pro currently and they have expensive trade fees. (currently paying 0.2% taker fees!) Plus their market order price guarantee is +/- 10%! Which when put into practice means while running at a really lean setting of say 0.1 Iíll occasionally spit out trades that I lose money on. Theyíll show up anywhere from -$0.005 to like -$0.25. @_@ As you can imagine, Iím not here to lose money I only want to make it. By upping it just a bit to 0.25 it accounts for this slippage and Iíll never see a negative trade. I might only make a couple cents sometimes, but itís at least always profitable while remaining extremely agile. Thanks to trailing youíre rarely ever going to be trading off at this small amount itís just important to preserve as much ability as you can in getting in and out of markets.

Now letís talk about those tight buying and selling percentages. Iíve done a lot of testing and find the bots default 0.5% to be waaay to loose for this application. Iíve even spent a lot of time trying 0.25 & 0.1. The objective of having a flowing sub percent machine gun trader is hitting each up and down as soon as the market even looks the opposite direction. Having settings of 0.05 will trigger on the same exact market moves as 0.1, youíre just getting more profit as you bought & sold earlier in the direction change. Remember Iím trying to fire off hundreds of trades a day so if Iím only making say 0.2% profit on a trade then the difference between buying/selling at a trailing of 0.1 vs 0.05 is huge. That actually doubles your profit as youíre walking away with 0.2 instead of 0.1. Itís all about min maxing to the best of the botís ability.

This also helps with your reentry into a market after selling off. Ideally it would go down so you can say youíve sold at the peak and are looking for the next dip to buy. Though if it continues to go up, youíre going to have to purchase again and buying as close as to where you last sold off is the best option. The gap between your exit and entry points on the charts is just lost profits in this case. These settings will dump your heavy bags at profit then reset your position almost instantly if that where to happen. Yes, sometimes you sold out just to see it buy again as the markets continue to fly upwards. You didnít know if the market was going to go further up or down, it made an emotionless decision to make you money while there was money on the table and thatís why you bought this program.

Another beneficial side effect of having the bot setup this sharply is itís a dip hunter. Anytime you see swings in the market where there is a high level of volatility itíll grab at the very bottom of dips even if they only existed for a mere second of opportunity. Iíve got a whole collection of screenshots in a folder called ďepic dipsĒ just because they make me smile and serve as a reminder that Iím on the right track with setting up the bot. Now letís talk about Trading Limit, DU Cap, & DU Cap Count. This is modelled after Guntharís post from waaay back in version 11 called ĒThe Way I Run ItĒ in which he shows how buying smaller amounts on the way down works better then direct 1:1 double ups.

Yes 1:1 will average the distance between your last and new purchase exactly half way between the two but it gets to be insanely expensive really quickly. I donít have unlimited funds so when the markets keep dropping I need a way of slowly lowering the bar for reentry. 20% buys donít spend a lot of money at first. The first few rounds are basically there to increase your bag size while the market quickly decides which direction itís going again. If it shoots back up then great you made a little bit more then you wouldíve as you cheaply picked up additional coins while the opportunity was there.

If it starts going down then not to worry you didnít spend too much yet. Though as the market continues to drop over an extended period of time you keep buying with increasingly bigger orders to where youíre slowly overriding your initial purchases. I generally shoot for a DU Cap of 12 and thatís just the sweet spot Iíve personally identified with my own level of investment. I start with $200 buys so that while playing the sub percent market I can atleast make a dollar of profit with the middle ground 0.5% gain. This means if I donít do any DU purchases thereís still enough in hand to make a little bit of profit. $100 buys were too little, $300 buys became too big through the DU process. Not to mention on the lower end with some coins like BTC I couldnít actually submit a DCA order of 20% as the amount was smaller than my exchange would let me place resulting in an order error. (thanks to my reseller @Leeview for catching that)

The other big factor in picking these numbers is I need to run a handful of markets so that when some of them are having a slow or painful day the others can remain fruitful. In actuality if Iím running even just five markets, I cannot afford to pay for all of them if 12 DCA orders are placed. Iím being greedy and utilizing the idea that generally only one or two is having a really bad day so I can use funds from the other markets that arenít hurting to better secure their positions for reentry. This is one of the downfalls of my particular financial situation as Iím dancing the line here. If we go through a crash of a cycle with all markets down eventually one or two of them will get caught up not being able to complete 12 full rounds of dollar cost averaging. Now as some markets come back, these other troubled markets will finish their DCA rounds though itís a burden on your newly freed bags for sure. Given this rarely happens, I make more doing this dance then not but itís far from ideal.

I further manipulate the situation with an AutoConfig file that is as simple as one could write a script. Itís not advanced wizardry like you see from other packages on the marketplace. Weíll cover that in the next section.

AutoConfig Discussion:
What this file does is simply check your markets DU Cap Count every ten seconds. It then changes the Trail Me Buy Range, DU Method, and DU Buydown depending one what range out of four it falls into. The first is fast, this says you just exited a market and are looking to get back in, ready to snap some coin up and get rid of it like a machine gun. It contains three rounds of dollar cost averaging at very sharp purchase levels. This is great when markets arenít fluctuating a great deal as it lets you buy the tiny dips then get rid of them at profit over and over.

The next range is called Normal, it keeps the same Trail Me Buy Range but extends the Method and Buydown by double. This stops the bot from rocketing through your DU Caps and money when things are just starting to go downhill. By doubling the distance while still maintaining such a sharp range youíre saving yourself twice the buy ins.  This occurs for another three rounds.

After that if things continue to go down, weíre now in the Slow range. This really slows down how often youíre purchasing those dollar cost average rounds by upping the Trail Me Buy Range to double what it was before, now at 0.1. It also doubles the Method and Buydown again to 1.0. Itís important to notice how weíve dulled the edge a bit so the market has to start coming back a little bit more before itíll trigger a purchase, it also has to travel at least a full percent (twice the distance) before it can happen. This also occurs for another three rounds of dollar cost averaging.

Then finishing it up, if all hope is lost on a market itíll be put in the Lost In Space range. This is for the last possible rounds of dollar cost averaging I can afford, the real big purchases. I want the largest range of possible distance down before making these buys to help lower my reentry point. There for the Trail Me Buy Range is changed to a huge 0.25 while the Method and Buydowns are increased to over double at 2.5. Normally I see considerably more traffic down then 2.5% as the 0.25% trail range doesnít accidently trigger until the markets are actually coming back. Itís a very dull setting and wouldnít work for the normal machine gun sub percent trades Iím trying to make all day but once youíre this far out from profitability and down deep into the DCA dungeon youíre playing a very different position.

Itís not the Dynamic DCA script you find on the market place but it remains dynamic using the built-in trailing system from the bot. Weíre basically just changing the behavior of how we want that trailing system to work into four different categories. Like I said before, itís drop dead simple. It works well, though Iím sure this is one of the areas more experienced traders / scripters could increase profitability.


Dollar Cost Average Excel Calculator:
I created a very simple excel file to help me determine what the proper levels for initial purchases & dollar cost averages should be. You can simply enter your initial buy in, how much you want to double up per round, & how much your trade fees are then itíll do the rest. Itíll conveniently plot out twenty rounds for you to look at. It has three separate calculators on the same page so you can easily play with the settings and compare them without having to take screenshots or write the results down.

Now I generally find I rarely need rounds 9-12, which is why theyíre the lost in space rounds. So however much you can start out with and still get to round 12 while maintaining the total amount of markets you wish to run is the correct number. Example as per what Iím running at time of posting. $200 buy ins @ 20% DCAs means by round 12 Iím holding a staggering $1800 bag. This would be if it bought the perfect amount each time which rarely happens, most the time itís slightly less but plan ahead.

Given Iím working with about $5k in funds right now this means I cannot even afford three markets to be round 12 fucked. As per the dance we talked about above. Given this rarely happens I can afford to send one or two markets to round 12 so that it can prep for a much better reentry point.

Iíve uploaded a copy of this simple excel calculator to google for you to download: here


Simple Things to Earn More Money:
If youíre planning on going down the route I have here and running a sub percent machine gun bot then itís all about paying as little in transaction fees as possible. This not only allows you to take home more money but it allows your bot to get in and out of markets faster, making it more agile. You want the lowest bar possible to reentry and Coinbase, even their Pro side, isnít the place for this.

Iíve done north of 500k in volume this last cycle already. They change your trading fees based on levels depending on how much volume youíre pushing. Though even on a good month Iím probably not going to push a million+ on this little amount of money Iím working with. Which means Iím stuck at 0.1% maker fees and 0.2% taker fees. This is too high and costing me an arm and leg while machine gunning sub percent trades. Iíve paid over TWO GRAND in fees so far this cycle alone.

A quick look around an exchange listing shows Binance offering an entry level 0.075% fee for both making and taking. That would more then cut my fees IN HALF. Iíd have made $1000+ more by just taking my business over there. Which at the time of posting I have actually gone through all the account creation processes to do so and have been waiting for the last level of account verification forever.

It goes to show that where you do business is just as important as how youíve setup the bot. Find a quality exchange that is going to appreciate your Gunbot. Donít forget to lockdown your account access, API, and whitelist your botís IP. Do every additional security enhancement possible. We live in a time where Gunbot accounts are a generally a good target so protect yourself.


Conclusion:
End of the day this configuration has provided pretty good returns since it's last iteration. Iíve been seeing $25 on terrible days, averaging $100 plus on normal days, and Iíve seen as high as $200 on monster days. Thatís with $5k total to work with. Though in all honesty I could just be getting extremely lucky as the markets have been very kind lately. Itís not hard to make money when everything is bull popping off booming and zooming.

The real test of a bot setup is how it handles bad days, back-to-back bad days, into bad weeks. How much you profit over a month, a couple months, into a year. I donít have that data right now as Iíve been dicking around with the settings a lot lately to arrive where I am currently. Iíve been using this bot for years trying to develop the perfect settings to play every possible hand throughout the day. I want it to be super human and often Iíll challenge it by sitting for twelve hours with my markets open doing it by hand.

It can beat me most the time but Iím also not a great trader, I think and process situations differently than it does. My human brain goes for larger more profitable trades while itís over there consistently winning over and over at the tight game. Itís emotionless and thatís the beauty. Even if Iíve not got it perfectly dialed in, it works while you sleep, while youíre out with your kids or on a date, itís making you money while youíre not thinking about markets. Thatís well worth the cost of the license.

As for what you should run. Iím not sure. I still think Pimís (@boekenbox) Grid package for spot trading is worth trying. I read today that heís implemented dynamic gain adjustment and thatís probably going to really be the winning feature that will bring in more profits than what I read earlier this morning. This entire wall of text post was created on the grounds I was seeing better returns machine gunning trades out in this fashion then grid users were making. To explore how that was happening and hopefully offer some education to the community that we could then in return collaborate on for a better all-around configuration across the board.

Remember, I am an amateur, Pim is not. My settings DO NOT handle massive market drops well at all. The only things you can do while running my config is set a stop loss to get your bot back on track once youíve maxed out your funds via dollar cost averaging orÖ sit around and wait for them to come back someday. Holding. If youíve got considerably more resources then me then you could always expand the range at which you can run DCA purchases. Thereís probably a range around 20 that youíd never really lose sight of the markets and stay trading all the time. Iím not able to test that and have decided playing more markets is the solution to sustained profits.

Ultimately thanks to the times we find ourselves in (see: covid), I have bills and have to live my life on top of what the bot is bringing in. I literally eat at times thanks to the bot. So while Iím slowly trying to build my wealth back up and be able to expand what the bot can do other people can probably come right in and test a lot of variables I canít afford to yet. I assume users providing settings packages like Pim are in a much better position then I am to advise you on how to trade. Though hopefully the time Iíve spent today creating this post will give some of you out there a lesson in using the bot and succeeding. This is worth your time, do not give up if youíre having trouble finding the profits. Come talk to us in the official Telegram groups or post here on the forums!

Cheers everybody, thanks for reading.

 Hello everybody! Not sure if really a bug or if my understanding of DCA is off. I've been using Gunbot for a couple years now and been a pretty big fan of the DCA system. I've been away from the bot for about six months though and coming back I'm a bit thrown off on how it's now working in the newest v20 of the program. I'm almost positive that in previous versions it would apply the range you set in DU Method & Buydown to the latest purchase you've made instead of always referring to the original purchase. Example: if you set 0.5 to both, it wouldn't perform a third purchase until it was 0.5 down from the second DCA buy.

 Currently I'm using DCA with Method & Buydown both set to 0.5 then TrailMe DU turned on with a setting of 0.25. It'll trigger multiple DCA purchases back to back when it sees the proper trailing being matched even if they're right next to each other at the same price. So it's only using DU Method & Buydown to look that it's below the set amount in comparison to the original purchase. I'm pretty sure it use to take additional purchases into consideration so that it wouldn't buy at the same price again and again burning through your DCA Cap Count.

 Anyone else experiencing this? Am I off in my understanding? I know I want it to consider the latest purchase instead of always referring to the original so that it can keep working it's way down and better utilizing each Cap Count as it can get pretty expensive quickly. Like I said before, I'm pretty sure that's always the way it's worked so I wanted to post a bug report on this, but not entirely sure it's a bug verse the program changing in the new version.

 Thanks for your time, /cheers

 Hello! Just wanted to pop in with another quick bug report. Same as my last one I'm running the newest version 20 of the bot inside Windows. While trading on GDAX the bottom left timeline buttons (right before the "Go To..." button) don't actually work properly. For example if I click 5y it gives me 1 week. Here's what it pulls up for each button:

5y = 1 week
1y = 1 week
6m = 2 hours
3m = 1 hour
1m = 30 minutes
5d = 5 minutes
1d = 1 minute

 Just wanted to make a post letting everybody know though I'm sure you've figured this one out on your own if you've clicked them. /cheers

 Just wanted to pop in with a quick bug report. Currently while using the newest version 20 of the program inside Windows pairs will continue to operate even after being turned off. I've tried this with both manually turning off pairs (which strikes them out with a line) and using the count sell function to automatically turn them off. The GUI will not show them anymore though they are still trading in the background. The only way I've been able to stop a pair from trading is to delete it from the pairs list completely. I've experimented with this a couple times to make sure it's happening before posting, just wanted to let everybody know in the case it's not just me.

 Hello everybody! Been a while since I've been around but it's great to see things still progressing here. A year or two back I remember seeing a thread where a guy had created the ability for the bot to place trailing DCA orders at different percentages depending on what number of it's cap count it was on. I've searched the forums and can't seem to find it again. I'd like to try this out in the newest v20 of the bot and am not sure where to start. Example: DCA #1 is purchased on a trailing of 0.25%, DCA #2 is purchased on a trailing of 0.5%, and DCA #3 is purchased on a trailing of 1%. I never fully explored the previous persons post about this so I'm not sure how he achieved this I just remember seeing it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance, /cheers!

Hey everybody! First off thanks for your time today. I don't know what's been going on in the background lately but I've had a number of problems in the last few weeks. I'm a novice user and I keep that in mind at all times. I'm positive pretty much 99% of my problems are because I didn't properly understand something, not because the software is broken or anything like that. Though occasionally things seem out of my repair & I've been left trying to figure out what to do. I PM'd Gunthar about one of them but I imagine he's just to busy to be bothered with personal responses to end users.

I run Gunbot inside a Hyper-V copy of Windows 10 Pro Workstation; it's completely isolated, has way more horsepower then it needs, and is wrapped in security given we're talking about money here. It's not used for any other purpose and the machine that hosts it is a stable server that doesn't go up or down including a large battery it sits on to make sure of it. I mention this in order to say, once setup and turned on nothing interferes with the GunBot software. There's no users in the environment, there's no changes every getting made, all updates have been suspended until it's scheduled service day, it exists completely inside it's own world.

Now I paid $750 for this software and it's been a good investment so far, it works far better then I do sitting there staring at the markets all day given I don't want to be staring at the markets all day. Though when things go mysteriously wrong there's very little avenue for self correction, you basically just gotta fire an email off to your reseller and hope they get back to you. I bought through "thecryptobot.com" & have exchanged emails with "Leeview" from there though they've not really been very helpful. My first issue I had was just complete license rejection one day out of the blue. GunBot would refuse to boot and tell me to contact my reseller as my license keys weren't valid. Within a couple hours I got an email back saying they were working on things on their side and that it should be normal now. Okay, great, double check, software turns on again and works. License servers go down, we've all had this happen before, no big deal.

Then I get that email about Gunthy coins going live soon and here's the steps to complete to make sure you get yours. So I go through the email and make an account over at IDAX, get everything setup and on launch.. no coins. Okay well probably something I missed or screwed up, no big deal, we'll just fire a PM off to Gunthar about it. Didn't think posting publicly could really yield any helpful solutions given the launch was already over and it's all stuff on the back end anyways. Then days go by and I get no response, no coins, no communication. Whatever kind of a bummer but i'm trying to stay positive here it's probably not a big deal. Overall I'm still happy with the software just would've liked to have got some money back on it given how much it cost.

Then the portfolio value graph just up and stopped working. Would just load zero balance. Instead of bothering Leeview about this since it's not a reseller issue or contacting Gunthar since it didn't matter last time, I do everything in the bag I can think of. Reinstalling, rebooting, reimaging, actually wiping my accounts back to my base currency regardless of where it was in the trade then reinstalling the software, I mean I tried it all. I checked my firewall logs and my connections to api.gunthy are waaay down so I figured there's just something going on in the background that they're fixing / updating. It's not the biggest problem in the world it's just a major inconvenience and not one I'd expect for such an expensive package. I continue waiting a couple more days and wham it just comes back alive with no changes on my part. I could've not done any of the diag work or hours dicking with things and came to the same solution. Another not on my side problem. Fantastic.

Now for the last few days it's been telling me my second exchange I'm on has an invalid license and to contact my reseller. Nothing has changed, I haven't touched anything, and now I can't trade at all on the exchange. Funds just sitting in the middle of trades and double ups, nope, license invalid. I reinstall, I try readding the API keys, nothing I do works. So I write Leeview from thecryptobot.com again as he's my reseller. Get an email back saying "Hello there, You probably have 2 Licenses . In this case, for each license try a different wallet when you setup the API Key." What? I haven't changed anything, it just stopped working. So I write back "Could you possibly explain that any further? How did it break in the first place? I mean nothing changed on my side at all it just stopped working and it says it's an invalid license." at which I get back "Hello again, You did not break anything. But, you have 2 different licenses (speculating). With the new Gunbot wallets licenses, you will need to create 2 installs, each with its own API Key and wallet." :o

WTF IS GOING ON HERE. This software generally is great, I love it, but it breaks alot and it's never something I've done. This is a financial sector application, it's uptime and stability should be of the upmost importance. Does my reseller just suck or is something going on? Isn't the whole point of this to be able to add multiple exchanges inside the same instance? There's so many settings directly related to this that I must be misunderstanding Leeview here. I have one Pro edition license to this software, not two, not three, just one. I'm currently connected to two exchanges out of my three allowed on my license. (or well, trying to be) I don't screw with them or the software outside of logging in to check the portfolio balances. Could somebody please explain to me what has happen this time and how to properly get my second exchange backup and running.

Thank for your time in advance, I really appreciate any and all help.
