Feathercoin daemon and wallet production version 0.17.0.2

Haasonline Simple Trade Bot for Bitstamp and BTC-e \[Main topic\]


  • | Tip haasonline

    I just have release a new version of the Haasonline Simple Trade Bot.

    [img]http://www.haasonline.com/images/stbmainscreen1.png[/img]

    The following changes are made:

    • A new bot has been added, a RSI-60 bot.
    • The trade ratio bot has been updated.
    • The high/log bot can now pre-trade (faster then human trading)
    • A drop safety has been added. This safety ensures a specific drop before a buy is allowed to made.
    • Bot parameters are loaded and safed during startup and shutdown.
    • For the tweakers among us there is a new advanced setting allowing the parameters to be loaded on every update.
    • A new decimal is added for better support inputs values. (5 instead of 4 decimals now)
    • Exception handeling is added.
    • Some other errors and minor changes are done like improving logbook messages.

    Please consult the online change log and online help of the software for more details.
    http://www.haasonline.com/index.php/stb/stbchangelog
    http://www.haasonline.com/index.php/stb/stbhelpmail

    All registered users will get a email today with the lasted software.

    Please note:
    I did not made all the changes suggested by UKMark. The software still needs full trust, but the unsafe code is now disabled. I hope to make the software more secure for the next update.

    Yay we can finally use to trade FTC 🙂

    I left running last night and it made it’s first FTC sell, although why did it make it 3pips higher than which I set? eg My Sell set @ 0.00108 - Bot Sold @ 0.0011 - Not that I am complaining as it made me more money 😃

    Also there appears to be a very, very slight bug in the actual trade amount, the figure shown changes from time to time but as you can see it is a big difference…

    But overall this is much, much better as far as being able to trade FTC! Good job! 😎

    First, thank you for your comments again!

    [quote]My Sell set @ 0.00108 - Bot Sold @ 0.0011[/quote]
    It works as expected. The bot reads the exchange and the current buy and sell values. At the moment the bot have read the values from the exchange the sell price was set to 0.0011 BTC. This price is higher then the values you have given as a parameter (>= 0.00108 BTC) and therefore the trade command is given. The difference between the 2 values is a little extra. I have seen this happen a lot of times during my tests.

    [quote]very, very slight bug in the actual trade amount[/quote]
    This is a little confusing, but it also works as expected. What you see is the effect of the exchange fee and rounding. If you have setup the bot parameters in good relation to the trade amount the FTC amount should go up in time. (if a full trade cycle is completed, 2 trades are required for this)

    Please note:
    I see you have the drop and profit safeties on. Those safeties will only work for the RSI and trade ratio bots, because those bots work with relative values. The high/low bot is working with exact values. I can not apply the saftefies there because they will overrule the buy and sell prices making the high/low bot getting stuck.


  • | Tip UKMark

    OK, yes I see what happened with the trade @ 0.0011 now, someone purchased all the way up to that figure, hence the BOT just spotted the higher figure and made the sale = Clever BOT 😃

    All seems good so far, I need to research RSI a bit more and then maybe have a play with those…

    Hi Stephan back to what I said in my first post today, if you click [b]‘all in’[/b] it is miscalculating the trade amount… I only have 1BTC in this account for testing purposes so where it is getting the 94,000+ FTC trade ammount from I do not know… I can work around this by setting an actual trade amount, but the ‘all in’ option is definitely not working for me. - As you can see I missed a 0.00104 buy because i did not have sufficient funds to cover the amount that seems to be auto-filled in once you click the ‘all in’ button…

  • | Tip haasonline

    I will look into it, thank for the report. I think the fee and rounding are the cause for this problem. The value i put into trade amount (on all-in) is the total value from the wallet, converted to the primary exchange (BTC->FTC) and minus the fee. My best guess is that the fee is calculated incorrectly. But again, i have to look into it and run some tests before i can really say something. I will get back on this.

    For now i advice you to use only 90% - 95% of your wallet amount to trade. 0,9 BTC or 0,95 BTC in your case.

    I will put a minor bug report on my change log about this. Thanks again.

    No problems Stephan, happy to help! 😎

    sigh, wish I was smart enough to figure this out (stock trading) lol. Looks very promising!
    I’m still at buy low sell high.


  • | Tip haasonline

    I will give some bot parameter tips, i hope this will provide a better understanding how the entire software works and what the bot parameters are that i personally use.

    [b]High/low bot[/b]
    I use the high low bot most on stable* currencies. I set it to -10% or -20% of the exchange values.

    [b]RSI-xx bot[/b]
    I use the RSI-xx bot (with profit and drop safeties on) on all currencies; stable*, raising or dropping. If the currency is stable i use equal profit and drop value. If the currency drops i will use a higher drop value and lower profit value. And if the currency raises i will use a higher profit value and lower drop value.

    [b]Trade/ratio bot[/b]
    The trade ratio bot is most effective on big changing currencies. For example currencies that are pumped or currencies that are dropping hard. Again i combine this with the drop and profit safety and i apply the same rules as i did for the RSI-xx bot.

    😉 A stable currency is a currency that changes but remains at the same average value.

    I hope this will help a little. I am still working on a “getting started” document, but i do not have enough time to finish it. It will roughly contain the same information as i have written down here.

    These tips i give here are tested already and they work all pretty good. But like i stated before, you have to get a feeling for the numbers. This is and will remain a learning process.

    How did everybody do with my advices? I can only guess there are some happy people now.

    I am happy to report that version 0.8.5.1 beta seems to be the best version i have build this far. I have only 1 minor bug reported for now and i got a lot of mails from people who are pleased by the changed i made.

    I can also report that my work on supporting the Vircurex exchange is doing well. This will be the major update i am working on right now. But prototype tests seems to work properly here. I am trying to include the support in the same simple bot which i now use for the BTCe exchange. This way i can make 1 piece of software and make it work for multiple exchanges at the same time. (current users will be updated as normal when the support for vircurex has been added and tested)

    I’m a newby in trading and just for 2 months mining with a rig 3x7950.
    First only LTC, but since a week also FTC. And now i’m mining different coins it’s harder to keep track of the market rate.
    Also I find lots of times when I want to trade I just missed the high values and a huge mountain in BTC was just an hour before I logged in.

    So I can use some help trading in my mined coins, and at the same time start trading a bit more.
    I made the payment en received the link with the download soon after.

    The first thing I did was to submit the file to [b]47 anti-virus programs![/b]
    [i]The results are:[/i] [b]ZERO findings[/b] (see screenshot)
    [color=blue]And the link to the virus check result: [u][url=http://goo.gl/MI9Sa]http://goo.gl/MI9Sa[/url][/u][/color]

    The install was easy and a reboot was needed after the first extra download/install (I believe it was a NET support download).
    After the reboot A warning that this program was unknown, and could be dangerous. (a standard .NET warning screen).
    After 2 more clicks the program was running.

    I run it in a sandbox so I can monitor its progress with several process watcher tools.

    Until now (+/- running for 1 hour) I have NOT found anything that could be wrong with this program. No virus, No “strange” code or behavior. All is 100% OK!
    I have many tools to find “unwanted” programs, and I let them all go on this one without any negative result.
    I keep monitoring and even saw the first sell/buy go from the program just as it should (Using High/Low for this first test).
    I Need to read the manual again to fully understand all options a bit better. But the program is not that hard to understand and even for a small time beginner like me it can be a great help.
    The High Low is set in a minute and seemed the best option for me until I fully understand the impact of the other options. I will let you know if the other options are difficult to learn and understand in the nearby future.
    But hey… So what… The High Low option is good enough for my needs now, so I think it can only get better?!

    I’ll keep it in a sandbox A few day’s just to see if there is no trigger going to happen later. But this is just me being careful because i have no apparent reason to believe there is such a thing in the program till now.

    [u]One thing I found in the manual:[/u]
    By default the update speed is set to 15 seconds.
    But the program after install gives: 20000 ms
    [i]- Just a small manual change might be needed here.[/i]

    Sorry for my bad English, I’ll keep everybody informed how it goes in the future.

    And just to make sure there is no misunderstanding: I am in no way connected to the makers of this program.

    Happy Mining/Trading all,

    John V

    @Duke:
    Thank you for your review. Please submit the software to all the tests you like you and keep on posting your findings! 😎

    Maybe you did not read this but i am (still) running a kind of promotion here. It is written down at the topic start. I give the people who buy my software a rebate of 0.2 BTC if they confirm there purchase here. In your case you did a lot more then that, but still i want to offer you the 0.2 BTC rebate for your “confirmation on purchase”. 🙂

    If you would PM me your wallet adres i can send you the rebate.

    Thank you.

    And going on… I like to make 2 suggestions.
    The one first big ting i really miss is some sort of popup hints.
    When you put your mouse over a field, then some sort of popup with info what that field does or other hints will be greatly appreciated.
    For example the “Block trade” setting; There is already a number filled in there, but where is it based on? Some sort of popup telling what it does and why this value is chosen might answer a lot of questions newby’s like myself have.

    I find myself asking a lot of questions while using this program for the first time.
    And what i miss in the help file (unless I missed it somehow on the website?) is some sort of "What If…"
    What if… I run more bots active at the same time? Does one have priority over the other? Do they conflict? etc.
    What if… I don’t have enough cash and the bot try’s to buy?
    What if… I make a mistake and put the Sell price BELOW the buy price, will the program protect me from doing that?
    So a sort of FAQ or “What If” is the suggestion I want to make for your website/program.

    A great help was the included link to the RSI calculation website.
    After reading the help file again with the link to RSI calculation (a must read for all users I think), I now understand the RSI options a lot better.

    So did this improve my live? I find myself not staring at the BTC-e site now, but all the time staring at this program and logfile ::)
    But soon I will get more trust in this program and get some sleep while trading goes on. So yes… Live will improve 😉

    As promised I received the 0.2 btc rebate in my wallet. Proof: [url=http://goo.gl/kFOFu][u]http://goo.gl/kFOFu[/u][/url]

    looks very promising. I intend to purchase - just building up funds the old fashioned way.
    Do you have an affiliate program in mind?

    I am seriously thinking about building a noob FTC (crypto info) website and would like to include your software as one of the main items on the site for those wanting to delve into crypto currency.


  • | Tip haasonline

    I did no think of a affiliate program yet, but that might be a great idea. Give me a few days to talk this over with some people and maybe we can work something out.

    Edit: Yes, we will support a affiliate program. We are working out the details right now.

    Edit:
    And we are online now with the affiliate -concept. I can only hope it will boost the publicity and sales.
    We are offering a pay-per-sale concept with a earning of 10% of the sales price. You can read the details in the following link.

    http://www.haasonline.com/index.php/affiliate

    I will personally handle all payments and manage the request to a reference code.

    PS Please use the contact form at my website to get in touch with me and to become a affiliate.

    Hey,

    I just ordered it today at 9:46 AM (gmt+1 time) and recieved the program the same day.

    Running it on a VMware sandbox because i’m an osx user and its a windows program. It works great for me this way.

    Yesterday i have released the new version of the Simple Trade Bot. I am now at version 0.8.5.2 Beta. This version solves a few bugs i got back the past week. All the registered users have got a mail from me with instructions how to upgrade to the new version.

    For full details about the changes please to to the change log of the Simple Trade Bot on my website.
    http://www.haasonline.com/

    I also released some new pages for the help (not all yet), they can also be found at my website, at the help of the software. I guess the most intresting page i have published in my help is about setting good bot parameters. I have shown some little tricks and tweaks there what you can do to find some good parameters to use.

    I hope this version will provide everybody with more profits then the previous version i released.

    Please use my new support ticket system at my website in case you encounter a bug or problem. I am moving from the simplebot -email to the usage of the support ticket system.

    Happy coin earning everybody!

    The first of the bigger reviews of the software has been posted at www.gigabytestorm.com (http://tinyurl.com/pbe4eue)

    And i have updated the help of the bot at my website.


  • | Tip sl1982

    Just bought this to test it out. Any idea how long the turnaround time from you fully confirming the payment and me getting the download link?

    edit: I got it. Also you need to look at the formatting on your help page. A lot of the text is cut off.
