Bots including MACD indicator not triggering

Postby Bunka » Sat Jul 22, 2017 4:46 am

Hi,

bots including MACD indicator not triggering. Made 8 different bots which include single MACD or combined with some other indicators, but in 10 hours from starting them not single one of them made trade. They are on 4 different acounts and different currencies. They just sit there, as some other disabled ones...

On all of them in LOG there are errors:
<string>21. 07. 2017 22:02:22 Executing bot update...</string>
<string>21. 07. 2017 22:02:22 Checking... MACD (10/26/9) (Bittrex STRAT/BTC @ 2min)</string>
<string>21. 07. 2017 22:02:23 ERROR: Calculation error detected. This bot is excluded from trading.</string>
<string>21. 07. 2017 22:02:23 Bot update cycle took 380 ms</string>
<string>21. 07. 2017 22:02:31 Executing bot update...</string>
<string>21. 07. 2017 22:02:31 Checking... MACD (10/26/9) (Bittrex STRAT/BTC @ 2min)</string>
<string>21. 07. 2017 22:02:31 ERROR: Calculation error detected. This bot is excluded from trading.</string>
<string>21. 07. 2017 22:02:31 Bot update cycle took 0 ms</string>
<string>21. 07. 2017 22:02:58 Bot activated.</string>


Meanwhile other bots, which are made with fibonacci and other indicators, do work well.

Triggers on MACD should start soon and trades should be made very often, at least backtests show that.
Almost all of the MACD also have no safeties and no insurances, to get to trigger soon just for testing purposes.

Any idea, why not working as intended?


Added screenshots of log file, setting and setting file of one of them.

I do not have a direct answer on this one, normally if we see the message "excluded from trading" then it means there is some historical data error. But sinds the chart are shown normally, this seems to be working normally. So we seem to be looking to a special situation here, i am having a wild guess its related to the market. But i got to run some tests to make sure this is indeed true.

Now with some extensive testing I found out, what caused situation to error: negative deviation (-3) made it - when 0 or + value its working ok, but results arent.

Is this negative value allowed or not?
If allowed (and true in calculations) that would do major good to evaluations of MACD, because then result are fascinant.
Difference is like -+100% - this negative deviations would make correct timing of triggering.

If not, should be disabled.

examples of 24h test on 12 minute MACD 5, 35, 12 with deviations 0 and -3 (bittrex adx/btc, 24h backtest)

difference is obvious, backetests are superb, but is it viable?
