Since I use v3.3.4 and now 3.3.5, GB don't made trade on Bittrex. No error on console, I think config.js is fine, and
My config.js:
Code: [Select]
"bot": {
                "debug": true,

                "period_storage_ticker": 300,
                "interval_ticker_update": 10000,

                "timeout_buy": 60000,
                "timeout_sell": 60000,

                "MIN_VOLUME_TO_BUY": 0.0005,

                "WATCH_MODE": false

        "strategies": {
                "bb": {
                        "BTC_TRADING_LIMIT": 0.02,
                        "PERIOD": 15,
                        "BUY_LEVEL": 0.1,
                        "GAIN": 0.6,
                        "HIGH_BB": 60,
                        "LOW_BB": 40,
                        "PANIC_SELL": false,
                        "DOUBLE_UP": true

The ten last are manuel trades to fund my BTC balance, as Gunthar said to manage bags.

Any idea?

General Discussion / [LINUX] Notify your phone from the terminal.
« on: July 03, 2017, 11:13:07 AM »
I'm just discovered Notify: What is it?


notify is written with node, so you can install with npm.
Code: [Select]
$ npm install -g notify-clior for me
Code: [Select]
$ sudo npm install -g notify-cli

Using notify is simple. When you download the app to your phone (, it will give you a registration key. This key is how your phone is identified by notify. Before you can begin using notify, you should first register your key.
Code: [Select]
$ notify -r myKey
After registering, you can use notify as follows:
Code: [Select]
$ someLongRunningCommand ; notify
You will receive a push notification to your phone when the command has completed, regardless of whether or not it was successful.

You can also specify what the notification will say, like this:
Code: [Select]
$ notify -t "My custom message"
Imagine all the possibilties.
I's a KISS program. That's it!

Beginners & Help / [LINUX] Stop after sell script
« on: June 27, 2017, 02:01:33 PM »
Hello all.

I made a little script to stop pairs I don't want to run anymore.

Code: [Select]
#!/bin/env bash
# usage pair market &


pid_of=$(pgrep -a gunthy | grep "$pair $market" | cut -d' ' -f1)

while :; do
    if tail -n1  "${market}-${pair}-trades.txt" | grep sell; then
        kill -s SIGKILL "$pid_of"
        sleep 120

[ ! -f stop_after_sell.txt ] && touch stop_after_sell.txt
echo "$(date) $pair $market" >> stop_after_sell.txt

How to:
- save this script in GB folder, name it eg
- make it executable
Code: [Select]
chmod u+x
- launch it eg for BTC_ETH on poloniex
Code: [Select]
./ BTC_ETC poloniex &
Note that ampersand is important.
When a sell happens this script kill GB running pair and track its work in stop_after_sell.txt. So you can watch what it will kill.

Beware of that this script isn't bullet proof it's made with "LA R.A.C.H.E : Rapid Application Conception and Heuristic Extreme-programming" ;).
Be warn and enjoy.

Hello, since 2 days I have only error 422 whith gunbot v3.x (v3.2 nor v3.3 whith patches). All my pairs don't works! I can't understand why. Is there anybody have the same issue?
I have obliged to increase bot fail delay to avoid error 429.
I can upload err.txt or anything if wanted.

Hello, I own some Ether on a wallet and I want trade them on Poloniex. But gunbot works already on BTC_ETH. How it will go?
If I deposit Ether on Polo, how gunbot will see that? It will put the brothel, no? And then, when I will run gunbot on ETH_ZEC, how will he know what to do?

Some of you may have encountered this case.
Thanks for your advices.

Technical Support & Development / Some questions about Stepgain.
« on: May 08, 2017, 07:33:42 PM »
Hello I have some questions about stepgain (v3.1).

1. Randomly, on certain pair, bot delay is half than I have configured.
Here BOT_SLEEP_DELAY was set to 1000 * 40 (40 sec), but gunbot work every 20 sec! Why?

2. Sometimes I encouter this error: Invalid amount parameter. What do I must understand?

3. -save.json doesn't exist, but never created!

Please, explain me those points.

Gunbot v2.0.4 Linux (Fedora here)

I've been using Gunbot for about ten days, and I'm having some problems, or rather I have questions.

I did several tests. Approximately three pairs: BTC_ETH, BTC_LTC, BTC_DASH, using the 1000trades strategy (1/1/1, 1/1/1, 1/1/1, 2/4, 0.02max/trade). But I found that the amount invested in my BTC portfolio was too low (<30%). So I increased the number of pairs up to eight: ~ 35% not enough! I added other pairs, and then I was banned by Poloniex (err: 429). I corrected :

BOT_SLEEP_DELAY: (1000) * 15,
BOT_MAX_LIFETIME: 999999999,
BOT_ON_FAIL_DELAY: (1000) * 5,

And all goes well with fourteen pairs, and increased BTC_TRADING_LIMIT to 0.025btc/trade. Now it is better ~50%. I would like 60-70%.

However I encounter another problem. I find that there are not many trades done, especially when I compare with the results here on the forum. As you can see, 25 operations in 24h.

It's sunday 15:20, no trades since 06:35.
Is this normal? I made a performance in 10 days of about 11% (0.23btc -> est. 0.256btc), is this the expected result. Is 1% per day normal?

I have browsed this forum, the wiki, replay several times. That's why I'm waiting for your best advice. I love Gunbot, Gunthar's work is great, and this community is friendly and starts producing nice stuff: Gunweb, spreadsheet, tutorials ...

Thank you all, and sorry for my bad english. I'm French and used Google Translate.
