Understanding backtest results
Backtests never completely correspond to what would have happened in reality, as they depend on factors that cannot be taken into account such as the order execution time or the spread. In order to correspond as closely as possible to reality, we have defined these few rules: The order is placed after the condition is fulfilled (and not on the same candle). For market orders, we use the opening price of the candle that follows the condition (and not the closing price of the candle on whic
What are bot statistiques ?
This article is about the data displayed at the bottom left of the bot page. They are about statistiques & performance analysis of the bot, useful to determine if a srtategy is profitable or not ! Bot stats At the top we have the current bot balance. It's how much the bot has currenlty. Then we have a graph with the gain evolution in time. It's the gain converted in the quote asset (i.e. EUR on BTC/EUR).
Are there minimum volumes on bots?
Botcrypto does not impose minimum volumes on bots. However, in real, we depend on trading platforms that apply minimum volumes on orders. You can check these limits here : Limits on Binance Limits on Kraken
How to send a manual order ?
On a real time bot, you can send a manual order at any time by clicking on the Manual Order button. It is also possible to open a manual order with the Close trade button. This order will be immediately sent to the exchange. It will appear with the other orders in the bot results. A manual order will not influence the course of the strategy. For example, if you have a strategy of the form Start -> Condition 1 -> Buy A -> next steps, and your bot is blocked at the beginning be
How to save a preset for the backtest form ?
You can use presets to save a precious time during backtesting. Selecting a preset, you don't need to fill all the field for backtest form. It make the backtesting part easier and more efficient, avoiding human mistake that can be made re-filling the same form again and again... You can manage (create, update, delete) your presets at: https://botcrypto.io/presets When you create a new backtest, a preset called "Preset" is automatically updated with the parameters you choose for the backtes
Are commissions taken into account in the orders?
First of all, it should be remembered that Botcrypto does not take commissions on orders. The commissions we are talking about are those of the exchanges. Commissions are taken into account in all bots. For backtests, the default commissions of the exchanges are taken into account, i.e. : 0.26% for Kraken 0.1% for Binance For real-time simulations, you can configure the commission on the wallet management page to best match your actual situation. Without any modification on your p
Can I short on Botcrypto ?
Shorts are not directly available on Botcrypto. You can still take sell positions. The gain will then be in the base asset. For example on the BTCEUR pair, your bot can sell BTCs to buy more or less depending on the price variation. If the price is halved, it will buy back twice what it sold. But if the price has doubled, it will buy back half as much. Note that to sell an asset, the bot must have this asset: it cannot sell BTC if it has no BTC in its balance. Otherwise, it will display
Understanding real-time simulation results
Real-time simulations never completely correspond to what would have happened in reality, as they depend on factors that cannot be taken into account such as order execution time or spread. In order to correspond as closely as possible to reality, we have defined these few rules: The order is placed after the condition is fulfilled (and not on the same candle). For market orders, we use the closing price of the candle that follows the condition.
