How to Emulate Scalper in Trade Bot Exactly

Postby t0ster » Fri Sep 15, 2017 9:17 pm


So my goal is to build my own scalper trade bot, but for start I just want to achieve the same behaviour as a scalper built-in custom bot.

The problem is that I am getting differnet results from backtests at the moment.

Here is my setup and backtest results for trade bot:

Blind Indicator: 1 min
Insurance Percentage Price Change: 0.51, 0.51

And here is setup and results for built-in sclaper bot

Can somebody explain why for my trade bot total gain is 0.0033942 BTC and for built-in scalper it's 0.00440419 BTC?

I am running 1w backtests.

as i understand insurance of scalperbot, you should change "percentage price change" to overcome fee costs, which is like 0,25% on each side, or put 0,25 or 0,26 instead of 0,51 now

The exact description of how to make this work can be found over here: ... _trade-bot

Your version is good as well, but you need to keep in mind that you need to pay the fee costs twice. You are buying and selling. So the total percentage to overcome is at least 0.5% on both the buy-sell and sell-buy side.

As for the different backtest results. Inside a trade-bot you are inside a more advanced setup. So your starting coin position and last buy and sell price will now also be taken in account for the bactest. I think this is responsible for the different outcomes.
