Gunbot Tournament Spot winners August
We interviewed the champions of the spot tournament. Let’s see what the pros can enlight us to improve as traders.
Why did you choose Gunbot as your bot for trading crypto?.
NIKSLOTER: I liked the idea of automated trading and the gunbot was the first bot I run into.
ANARCHY99: Heard from a friend about the good results and community behind it. Seemed to do a nice job while sleeping.
LUCKYFOX: Because it is a one-time payment, flexible, does not have a steep learning curve (at least you do not have to be a coding geek to use it), has an excellent selection of trading strategies with lots of parameters to modify to your liking, it is continuously improving with new features and great strategies and most importantly because it has an astonishing great community that is really active, helpful and polite.
NATASHA TOOMIKOS: Gunbot was one of the few bots available back in the day (2018).
What’s the best feature for you of Gunbot bot?.
NIKSLOTER: The community (telegram).
ANARCHY99: All the new strategies and the people behind it, they rock!.
LUCKYFOX: Autocofig is awesome. Also, I know it is said many times, but I really like the active community and the great effort done by community members to help create/improve great strategies and ideas. Thank you all.
NATASHA TOOMIKOS: The stability which I can rely on.
What strategy did you use?.
NIKSLOTER: Custom strategy very similar to the step grid.
ANARCHY99: Stepgrid, 15m tf with high tl, I picked my pairs based on the 4hr tf and bb200;1.5 the slope of the middle line of the bb had to go down and stabilize to zero before going back up, when the slope looked to be around zero, I would add the pair to the bot.
LUCKYFOX: StepGrid, was created by PIM.
NATASHA TOOMIKOS: Plain step grid (without controller).
What wallet balance did you have at the start of the tournament ?.
LUCKYFOX: I do not remember exactly as I had four bots running the tournament, but it was around 600-700 USD for each bot. I added some more funds to each bot during the competition though (about 200 USD for each bot).
NATASHA TOOMIKOS: 6,000.
What estimated wallet balance did you end after the tournament?
LUCKYFOX: It is hard to remember the exact balance at the end of the tournament, but it was about 60 to 100 USD more than starting balance for each bot.
NATASHA TOOMIKOS: 6,600.
What’s the feature you would like to be added to Gunbot?
NIKSLOTER: HFT (high-frequency trades) or web socket.
ANARCHY99: Buy and sell strategy based on high low candles, I’m a fan of setting stop loss below previous daily. Or weekly candle and buying on higher high higher low after making lower high and lower lows.
LUCKYFOX: There was a feature teased a while ago about the ability of gunbot to accept telegram signals/alerts. I have heard nothing about it since then. It would be super awesome if that feature is released. Another feature that I would like to have is having more DCA love. It would be nice if there are more indicator-based DCA DU methods (currently it is limited to Highbb, RSI, or percentage). Also, I and everyone else are eagerly waiting for a fully functional HFT release, hopefully soon.
NATASHA TOOMIKOS: A stable HFT release.
What’s the most urgent need that needs to be Fixed or revamped?.
NIKSLOTER: It would be nice if the pair cycle time could be reduced. Maybe there should be a couple of flags in the config to turn off all calculations that are not used by the strategy for the pair. This is for the calculations that require API calls or extensive computation.
ANARCHY99: Pnl on tournament and pnl page in gb, I think im missing some of my pnl after for example the bot stops cycling. Deleting JSON files seems to solve the issue but my pnl is gone for previous days. I’m wondering if I was really the second. 😉
NATASHA TOOMIKOS: The PNL calculations on the Gunbot dashboard are way off. I made $ 600 profit on the tournament, Gunbot thought it was $ 1300. The Telegram notifications have the same issue.
Are u using any special add-on?.
ANARCHY99: No, plain stepgrid and adding my own pairs.
NATASHA TOOMIKOS: I’ve started using Zybot for MM.
What makes u decide to use an add-on for your Gunbot?.
NIKSLOTER: I don´t use any.
NATASHA TOOMIKOS: To prevent human interaction on certain strategies with Gunbot.
Thanks for the interview folks, you rock!.
