Make sure Gekko downloads the necessary data needed. Else the strategy will be stuck in 'BEAR'mode and won't trade.
Your Warmup period should reflect what you have set as SMA_long since the strategy will need that length of data in order to properly see if there's a BULL or BEAR trend.
Also make sure Gekko (check your console) tells you that it is downloading the necessary data before it starts running, you should get a message about this.
First of all, thank you so much to share your strategy and your time with us!
I have done test for a lone time, i am playing now a little with the live Gekko. I would like to ask you about this point.
If a set SMA_long in 600, I will should also set the warmup period in 600 ? With CandleSize in 11 minutes, it means I need 1 week and 15 hours of data.
Yes, but your calculation is wrong.
600 @ 11 minutes = 600 x 11 = 6600 minutes

6600 / 60 = 110 (hours)
110/24 = 4.5833 (days)
4.5833/7 = 0.6547 (weeks)
This might be a good tip (for those that don't know):
If using browser Google Chrome...
1. Type 600*11= in your adress bar (where you type urls..)
2. When you get the number type 6600 minutes to days in the adress bar and you'll get the number of days directly instead of having to do the calculations
If you're using Android's Google Voice or Apple's Siri you can ask it to calculate such things as well.
