Issue/Question about the web UI
Hey, I recently set up an instance of Gekko on a VPS. 

When i use 
node gekko --ui
to start the web interface, and when I close the web interface, nothing saves. 
In addition, when I use
node gekko --config config.js

It only opens a CLI. 
I have a config.js file with all the settings I need, but the UI won't load the config. The config is only loaded with the node gekko --config config.js  command, which only launches a CLI.
I've tried 
node gekko --config config.js  --ui
But that still doesn't load the config in the UI.
I am wondering if there's a way for the UI to either link to the CLI interface or for the UI to load my config.js.
Any help is appreciated.
Also, I'm wondering if there's a way to have the web UI save itself every 5 minutes or so, so when I shut the UI down, it's saved?
You should run in two instances:

Run: node gekko --ui
Then: node gekko --config config.js

There is no way to the UI load your config.
config.js file is only for CLI mode. configuration for UI is in config folder.

I have no idea why you should run the UI and CLI at the same time.

This is all going to change but this is the way to look at the config files:

- When running Gekko over the commandline the config is your interface to tell gekko what you want (what market, what strategy, what parameters).
- When starting the Gekko UI: You can run multiple Gekkos, and you configure them inside the UI (what market, what strategy, what parameters), as such there is no reason to specify a config file when using the UI.

That said: It kind of grew out of proportions and I am revamping the config system in the next version.
