    It could be used as a new variant. Other variants are focused on fast sells at lower %. They focus on close cycles as fast as possible as fast cycling = higher profits. I think that to force % up to 4% could slow down cycles a lot but it could be tried.

    That’s true, getting in and out quickly helps free up capital in downtrends as well which stops you from getting stuck near the top.

    Do your profits include the CT sells below ABP? I know the PnL for stepgrid counts the sells below ABP as profit even though it’s used to lower ABP and isn’t actually true profit. Just wondering if SGA also does the same for your variants.

    Great results so far Aitor. How long does it take to close the average trade?

    Appreciate this would probably need a custom script but would be interesting to see if high profits can be secured by having two gain levels for partial sells, i.e. sell 70% of bag at 2% TP and sell remaining 30% bag at 4% TP. The thought behind this is that in a lot of cases the price carries on climbing up after GB closes a cycle, so I wonder if two TP levels can capitalize on this?

    Any updates Aitor? Interested to know how V4 handled this mini-pullback.

    Nice log mega, a 23% return in 1 month is pretty impressive!

    Out of interest:

    1) How are you choosing your pairs? Are you manually screening them or using an auto-controller?

    2) How often are you getting bagged on some of these mid-caps?

    3) When you remove a trading pair, do you let it finish its cycle before removing it, or do you just stop trading it and hold it as a bag for manual sell later?

    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.

    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 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 :)

    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.

    The DCA entry points and CT selling points are looking fantastic! Really nice job on that as I don’t think you could have timed them much better tbh. I’m not sure if you’ve already tried it or if you already have a solution, but it could be interesting to combine CT with an overall trend checker and stochastic indicator. The overall trend checker would let you know when a movement is bottoming out (i.e. a good time to enter and not wait any longer) and the stochastic indicator could help find the best entry within that bottom. I’m sure you don’t need suggestions from me but I like bouncing ideas off other botters :p Regardless, looks like you’re making great progress on CT entry and exit points :clap:

    Any updates Aitor? Curious as to how your strat is currently handling this market. The current range seems like it would be perfect for a grid bot!

    Day 3 update

    Stats
    Total profit: $10.08
    Total running time: 72 hours (3 days)
    Average profit per day: $3.36 (-$1.01 compared to yesterday)
    Average profit per hour: $0.14 (-$0.04 compared to yesterday)
    Average DU across all current open orders: 4.6
    Max DU across all current open orders: 6 (+1 compared to yesterday)
    Capital currently utilised (Bags in Base) as a percentage of total funds assigned to the bot: 15.6% (-1.8% compared to yesterday)

    Profit Screenshots:
    Thanks to Aitor’s suggestion, I managed to update my GunBot version yesterday which fixed my issue with the PnL not working correctly.

    Observations:


    @Aitor
    , thanks for the suggestion about increasing TrailMe. I think it would be a great experiment, but I’m using V2 of this mutation so it’s probably not worth it as it might have different results on the newer versions. I do think it would be interesting to try though because looking at the buys circled in green below, I think it would lead to more lower buys than higher buys, meaning that overall it would help lower the break-even price even faster. I did a quick manual experiment on TradingView with the percentage tool, and it looks like increasing the TrailMe by 25% of its current limit could be beneficial, but it would need testing of course.

     

    Suggestions/Possible Experiments:

    On another note, in the past when I used a different bot I found that starting my DU as 2 times my TL helped in closing deals much faster (i.e. 2-3 hours instead of 1 day). For example, assuming a 1.05% TLM and a TL of $10, it would BUY at $10, then DU at $20.00, $21.00, $22.05, $23.15, $24.30 etc. Because the first DU is double the BUY, it would bring the break-even down by 2/3 instead of only 1/2. It does increase the funds needed per each pair, but overall it yielded higher profits compared to running more pairs with less funds each. I just thought I would share this as it could be a useful experiment to run.

    Day 2 Update

    Stats

    Total profit: Unable to determine – GunBot PnL doesn’t appear to be working and Binance is showing a loss (-$33), however, this will be because of a drop in the asset valuation and not because the bot is selling at a loss.

    Total running time: 47 hours (2 days)

    Average profit per day: $4.37 (unchanged since yesterday as unable to determine)

    Average profit per hour: $0.18 (unchanged since yesterday as unable to determine)

    Average DU across all current open orders: 4.5

    Max DU across all current open orders: 5

    Capital currently utilised (Bags in Base) as a percentage of total funds assigned to the bot: 17.4%

     

    Profit Screenshots:

    Again, my GunBot PnL isn’t working (see screenshot below), so I currently have to use Binance’s PnL even though it’s not as accurate. Although Binance is showing a negative PnL balance, this is because of a drop in asset valuation and not because the bot is selling at a loss.

    Screenshots/Observations:

    The bot has been great at timing the bottoms. Sometimes it buys midway through a downtrend rather than at the bottom of it, but this is probably because the price action increases above the trailing and triggers a buy before it continues back down. There’s not much we can do about this as the bot is performing exactly as it should.

    Example of great buys and CT sells:

    Examples of good buys and CT sells:
