  child process died on placing buy order on Binance live trading
Posted by: kymikal - 01-19-2018, 01:47 PM - Forum: Technical Support - Replies (1)

I was able to get everything set up. I downloaded the software, I was able to run a backtest and add the API. I then went to use the Autobot for a live trade. It was running for about 3 hours until it crashed. It did not make a trade the entire time. I did look at the command prompt and it seemed to not make a trade because it was not the right time for it. I could not tell if it crashed when actually making a trade. However when I try to run a live trade after the crash it says, "child process died".


Suggestions? How do I fix it?


  Backtesting crash
Posted by: Valleyman - 01-19-2018, 01:15 PM - Forum: Technical Support - Replies (9)

Hello,

When backtesting in the UI it sometimes occurs that it finishes without displaying results but when I look at the CLI the test is clearly still running. 
This used to happen mainly when working with very short candles (1-2-5 minutes) but it's been happening more recently. 

Can somebody give me some pointers on how to examine this further? 

PS: Thanks for the effort Mike!

Cheers!


  let bot choose trading pair on basis of prev market volatility
Posted by: piffpaff18 - 01-19-2018, 07:02 AM - Forum: Strategy Development - Replies (1)

Hi. First of all, Thanks a lot Gordon! Super interesting work!

I would like to try to enable the bot to choose trading pairs on basis of previous market volatility... to make the market fit the strategy so to say.
Anyone else interested in this?


  Having problems installing Gekko
Posted by: z82 - 01-18-2018, 06:16 PM - Forum: Technical Support - Replies (3)

Hi,

I'm a new user and not very good with Linux.  I cannot get Gekko to run properly and receive an error when I try to run it:

/home/john/gekko/core/error.js:3
let RetryError = function(message) {
^^^

SyntaxError: Block-scoped declarations (let, const, function, class) not yet supported outside strict mode

    at Module._compile (module.js:410:26)
    at Object.Module._extensions..js (module.js:417:10)


Here are my system details:

64bit OS
16.04 LTS Ubuntu
Intel Core I5

My objective is to run it on a laptop and interact with it via my browser.

I tried following the instructions yesterday here:

https://gekko.wizb.it/docs/installation/...gekko.html

It was late at night and I might have installed nodejs after installing Gekko.  Will Gekko configure properly if nodejs is not present at install?  If Gekko is not configured properly, how do I start over? 

I also tried installing Gekko using Docker and no luck there either.   Since I couldn't get it to do anything, I uninstalled Docker.

Can anyone help me?


  Got my gekko running live papertrades but doesn't want to start actual bot.. binance
Posted by: kenny1309 - 01-18-2018, 10:51 AM - Forum: Technical Support - Replies (1)

hey guys,

i got my gekko installed on my pi, all working well (import date, live runners,...)
only isseu is that i can't start a trading bot... i can papertrade without isseu...
i'd like to set the but on BTC - XVG (i do have xvg on my binance but low on btc might this be the isseu?)
I did set my api keys for binance, but i hit an error:

Gekko 166573169671184 started
  --> POST /api/startGekko 200 39ms 369b
RECEIVED ERROR IN GEKKO 166573169671184


Gekko encountered an error and can't continue

  VWP (Volume Weighted Price)
Posted by: bpc555 - 01-18-2018, 07:13 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)

I would like to know how BudFox is calculating VWP.

The Documentation for BudFox states that its output is JSON objects such as:


Code:
{"start":"2015-02-02T23:08:00.000Z","open":238.21,"high":239.35,"low":238.21,"close":238.66,"vwp":8743.778447997309,"volume":203.6969347,"trades":56}


where I assume "vwp" is Volume Weighted Price.  However, it seems to me that the actual values of VWP disagrees with other data (specifically price and volume) from that same record of trades.  

Given that

[Image: vwap.gif]


I presume then that VWP = VWAP * Total Share Bought = VWAP * Total Volume.

So, from the data from the sample record above, VMP = 8743.79 and volume = 203.70 which implies VWAP = 8743.79/203.70 = 42.92
But 42.92 is outside the high..low for that trading period (239.35 .. 238.21).

What am I missing?

Thanks in advance,
Brenton

BTW.  I checked the code [gekko/core/budfox/candleCreator.js: 149 and 152] and it does appear to be creating a VWAP correctly.  Perhaps the data is bad in the example?

Question Max. amount of exchanges/pairs?
Posted by: jasurakk - 01-17-2018, 01:27 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (14)

Hi all,

and thank you very much askmike for opening this forum, way to go! Big Grin 

For what I have understood, it's possible to start many runners on one Gekko instance from the "Live Gekkos"- page. But is there any limitation for the amount of pairs or exchanges, or is it just a matter of memory on the PC? I mean, could I have 10 or 50 runners at the same time, each one looking for a different coin pairs? Or even so that I have runners for 5 different exchanges, 50 pairs per each exchange etc.?
