Miscellaneous settings parameters

These strategy settings allow you to control your stop limit and other uncategorized features.

Stop Limit

Description
Values
Order types
Name
Sets a stop limit to sell a coin at a calculated loss.
After a stop limit sell order has been placed, the bot will go into buying mode after TRADES_TIMEOUT has passed and will buy again when market conditions meet your buying strategy.
Setting a stop limit at 60 would make sure that all holdings for a coin are sold when 60% value is lost, compared to the averaged bought price. E.g. average bought price is 100, stop limit is executed at 40 and all assets are sold.
With margin trading, the stop limit is set as a ROE value. Setting it to 1 will lead to the stop limit triggering when ROE reaches -1. Use a value that includes your leverage.
It's recommended to use STOP_BUY / STOP_SELL instead, when possible.These are placed at the same time as the position is opened.
Values: numerical – represents a percentage.
Default value: 60

Ignore Trades Before

Description
Values

Optional parameter to force Gunbot to not consider any trades before the set timestamp.
Only ever use this when you know exactly what you are accomplishing, and for example want to prevent RT from being started on a pair where the last sell order resulted in a loss.

Values: unix timestamp in milliseconds
Default value: 0
Parameter name in config.js: IGNORE_TRADES_BEFORE

Bought price

Description
Values
Order types
Name
Exchanges often don't provide order information anymore on trades that happened longer ago. This parameter exists to manually specify a reference price per unit that Gunbot should consider when selling an asset for which no bought price is provided by the exchange.
This parameter should only be used as an override.
The override is only valid when no bought price can be retrieved from the exchange. In case you want to forcefully override an available bought price, you can apply IGNORE_TRADES_BEFORE and remove the pairs state json file after doing so.
This parameter is irrelevant for margin trading

Liquidity maker

Description
Values
Order types

Enables a staggered orders strategy variant that continuously places up to 9 orders on the bid side of the order book.
