I am paper trading BTC/USD on GDAX exchange. Last night I enabled an Orderbot with the following rules:
- If price greater than 9985 then buy 1 limit @ 9980
- If order 1 is filled, place sell 1 limit @ 10,179.6
- If order 1 is filled, and price goes below 9780.5, sell 1.4 limit @ 9780.4
- If order 3 is filled, place buy 0.4 limit 9281.4
The first order was filled shortly after I activated the bot - understandable, as the price was fluctuating around that level last night Pacific Timezone). Then around 11pm PT the Marketview chart shows no price changes or volume. Price is totally flat at 10,046.78 from 20:59 until 0:15.
I looked at the chart on GDAX.com and also see a gap of data between 9pm and 12am so I know it's not just me.
Needless to say, the Trade logbook for my Orderbot recorded a sell of 1.26 at price of 9780.4 at 00:42 PT.
Can anybody explain why there is no price or volume activity between 20:59 and 0:15 from last night?
I am seeing no price/volume in Marketview since 0:50 (but I do see trading information on GDAX.com).
It seems like a stretch to believe my orderbot caused this kind of data glitch, but it's the first time I have seen this behavior and it is the first time on ran a bot so...?
