scalper buys at market price

Postby Matej » Sun Apr 16, 2017 10:16 pm

Hello,

I've just started with the scalper bot on Kraken. I have 2 issues:

- When buying, the bot is not waiting on the buying list in the order book, but he buys immediately the lowest bid on the selling list. Pretty awkward when heaving a high spread. I would like to have the bot jumping to the top off the buying list waiting for someone who wants to sell at market price. I see this all the time happening.

- Can the scalper bot take short positions? I cannot find out how to do that.

Yes a scalper can take short positions. Sinds build 3.0.49 a review was done on the Scalper-bot and we noted it did not go short. So we "fixed" this and its running fine.

Because of you other question i am a bit unsure here. There is a difference between spot and margin/leverage trading in relation to the buying and selling in the orderbook.

For this I would use the flash crash bot, it will spread out orders similar to how you describe.
It is one of our best bots that works out of the box: https://wiki.haasonline.com/Flash_Crash_Bot
