  How to trade BTC/USDT (so use BTC as currency and USDT as asset?)
Posted by: opoloko - 11-18-2019, 04:49 PM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

Hi all

possibly a newbie question but I can't see how to do it (or if it's simply not needed)..I updated the currencies in Gekko (latest) with the script for my exchange, they got updated (Binance by the way) but I can't find a way to select BTC as currency and USDT as asset.

I basically want to accumulate USDT using BTC.

How to do that? I have BTC already on the exchange, so I'd like first trade to be a sell and for Gekko to maximise and calculate my profit/loss considering the USDT amount...

  Extract difficult market situation timeframes
Posted by: mczero - 11-18-2019, 10:34 AM - Forum: Strategy Development - No Replies

Hey crypto trading guys,

I am experimenting a bit with japonicus (brute force strategy parameters with a genetic evolution approach). 
There often seem to be problems with overfitting while using gekko in live trading (I am still only backtesting).

Now I had the idea (link to japonicus issue on github) to improve japonicus to do the following:
not only backtest for a specific timeframe, but also mixing in 5% or 10% into the tests with
timeframes that are particular difficult to handle for strategies. 

For this, we have to get our hands on market times that match this criteria. How do we get there?

Say, we have a strategy relying on the RSI indicator, and parameters for a specific timeframe, three month, one year, whatever.
It is doing extremely good (overfitted?) in that specific timeframe, and when we look at the trading history, 
there are some days (or a week) in the timeframe where it does particularly bad, no matter how good this strategy/parameter pair was
at the end. 

Then we have a second strategy, based on Bollinger Bands, and parameters that are very good for a specific timeframe, too.
But even there are times when the strategy isn't working very good with the market situation.

Perhaps the code of those strategies could be modified to write time periods to CSV when it is not doing a good job.

Then, when some CSVs are collected, they could be run through a script which overlays the data of all CSVs and looks for equality.
The result of this could then be fed to japonicus as particular difficult market times.

Therefore, I am interested in thoughts on this approach and how a strategy could be modified to write out such a CSV.
And perhaps some strategy/parameter pairs that did very well in the past, with the specific timeframe they were used and measured at. 
Can be from 2018/2017, so no one has to reveal his strategy portfolio that he uses today.

Of course it could be that my thinking is too complicated and there is an easier solution for this. I am just beginning with gekko and getting to a
viable live trading solution, so bear with me.

Have a nice week!

  Gekko Email orders

Good morning all,

Do you think it would be possible to trigger the purchase or sale through an email alert, (tradingview alerts for example).

For example as did the developer below :


Thank you in advance for your answers !

  Issue : sometimes, Gekko only sells part of portfolio
Posted by: npuchois - 11-11-2019, 06:56 PM - Forum: Technical Discussion - No Replies


This is my first post/thread on this forum, I'm glad such a community exists !

I've been running a tradebot since a couple of weeks now, and i'm facing an issue when Gekko tries to sell my portofolio.

Sometimes, only a part of my assets is sold, and then... nothing...
The tradabot is still running, but no errors shown in log, no roundtrip information, not even a red dot on the chart.
And the worst : no more trades

Then, I waste hours and days. 
Even if a buy or sell condition seems to be triggered, nah, just my market watcher updating and nothing more...
My bot becomes zombified, and I have to restart a new one.

I'm using, I guess, the latest version of Gekko v0.6.8, on Linux Mint, my exchange is Kraken, on EUR/BTC

Is this issue known ? And is there anything to do to get fix it ?

Thanks for your answers and support !
