    Hi all, welcome to my second mutation log. I previously tested SG Mutation C1 V2 which had respectable results – you can find my log of it here: GH – SG Mutation C1 Results. I’m now testing out SG Mutation C5 V3.5, which I have high hopes for given the amount of work Aitor and Javier put into developing it! The intention of this log is to share my results with others and to provide Aitor and Javier with some data/insights to help them optimise future variants.

    Strategy: SG Mutation C5 V3.5
    GunBot: v23.0.4
    Running on: Windows VPS (4CPU, 8GB Ram)
    Connection speed: 200mb/s
    Exchange: Binance
    Number of pairs: 5
    Pairs: USDT-BTC, USDT-ETH, USDT-BNB, USDT-ENJ, USDT-LINK
    Trading Limit: 25
    Start date: 22/08/21

     

    Manual adjustments made to strategy:

    1. Reduced trading period from “15” to “5”. (Reason: Thought it would be interesting to test the bot on a shorter time frame where the movements would be a bit more volatile. This does mean that I’ll burn through my bankroll quicker, but I’ve addressed the risk by making sure I have enough capital for all DCAs on all pairs set aside to inject in. I also have access to additional capital should I need to inject some more later on to get out of deep bags, but I don’t think I’ll need to given the high number of DCAs already factored into the strategy and the fact that it has CT to help bring down the ABP.
    2. Reduced “Start Continuous Trading”. I won’t say what the before and after numbers are as I appreciate Aitor doesn’t want us to give away too much about the strategy settings, so let’s just say that I reduced it by 1. (Reason: I noticed that after a certain number of DCAs, the distance from ABP is usually too large for the price to move straight back up to without consolidating first. I thought it would be interesting to see if starting continuous trading slightly earlier after a drop would catch more of the zig-zag consolidation price action and therefore benefit the strategy).

    Day 3 Update

    Stats
    Total profit: $18.18
    Total running time: 3 days
    Average profit per day: $6.06
    Average DU across all current open orders: 8.4
    Max DU across all current open orders: 11
    Capital currently utilised (Bags in Base) as a percentage of total funds assigned to the bot: 22%

    Screenshots:

     

    For some reason or the other, it seems that my gunbot is freezing up as it’s not making any additional CT orders even though it has in the past at the same prices. See examples below:

     

    Probably due to the same error as above, gunbot hasn’t sold two of my positions even though they are more than 1.5% above the ABP. They constantly just show a “Grid Sell Trailing” line. but doesn’t actually fire an order. See example below:

    I’m not sure why this is happening given that everything was working smoothly on Days 1 and 2. I have tried stopping and starting trading and restarting gunbot, but neither seems to do the trick. I will give it another 24hrs before fully reinstalling gunbot and resuming SG Mutation C5 on a fresh cycle for Day 5.

    Note that buy points are dynamic. The fact that you see the price went lower than the current blue line doesn’t mean it went lower previously. Anyway you can contact us to check that everything is ok. What DCA number did you reach to?

    Hey GH, nice changes. I’m interested with the reduction of trading period, how it went the last couple days. Does it perform many more buys than before?

    Hopefully you got your GB sorted to be able to answer that.

    By the way, is your Binance account verified? If it isn’t they don’t allow to use API Keys and you will see an error in bot console. That may explain the lack of trades.

    Thanks for the reply Aitor. I realised why it happened – it’s because yesterday morning Binance stopped API access for all non-KYC users, which includes me (https://www.binance.com/en/support/announcement/654c092a2a2347bdb5ccd6faa0c6c039). Because my API access was cut off, GB couldn’t place any DCA or CT orders.

    I’ve switched my API over to a different account (which is KYC verified) and will restart GB and the strategy later today :)

    Hey @megadarv, I’m personally liking the 5min timeframe quite a lot, but mainly because I’m quite aggressive so it suits my trading style well. Keep in mind though that because the timeframe is smaller, the support and resistance levels will have a smaller spread (due to less candles) and so DCAs will generally burn through your funds quicker. I’ve got spare funds set aside that I can put in if I ever get fully bagged and need to manually DCA further, but so far I haven’t come close to needing to do this. Though one of the biggest reasons for this is because I only trade high-cap cryptos (e.g. BTC, ETH, ADA, DOT, SOL) so the drawdowns generally aren’t as big as they are for the small-caps which help make things more manageable. I wouldn’t recommend the 5min timeframe if you can’t cover all your DCA amounts nor would I recommend it for small-caps.

    Thanks for the info mate. The 5m sounds like it’ll suit me too, but I don’t know what kinda balance I need. Maybe on the next 50%+ dump I’ll set that.

    I’ll follow your results and thoughts closely though as I’m very interested.
