LOWBB


This buy strategy is true when current ask price goes below the LOWBB threshold you specify.
This sell strategy is true when current bid price goes above the LOWBB threshold you specify.

BB values are percentages of the BB width. Width = HIGHBB - LOWBB and a buy_value/sell_value of +/-10 represents 10% of this width.
For a coin to be bought/sold using LOWBB, the ask/bid price must be less than the value of the LOWBB price multiplied by (1 + buy_value/sell_value expressed as a percentage).


The Numbers

Valid Values: positive or negative decimal values
Frequent Values: from 100 to -100

100 = 100% of the BB width above LOWBB. i.e. on the HIGHBB line
50 = 50% of the BB width above LOWBB. i.e halfway between HIGHBB and LOWBB
0 = on the LOWBB line
-45.25 = 45.25% of the BB width below LOWBB
-235 = 235% of the BB width below LOWBB

The lower the value the more conservative it is for buying and more aggressive it is for selling.


The Formula

negative buy/sell_value

Buy Price < LOWBB - ((HIGHBB - LOWBB) * ABS(buy_value)/100)
Sell Price <= LOWBB - ((HIGHBB - LOWBB) * ABS(buy_value)/100)

positive buy/sell_value

Buy Price < LOWBB + ((HIGHBB - LOWBB) * ABS(buy_value)/100) 
Sell Price <= LOWBB + ((HIGHBB - LOWBB) * ABS(buy_value)/100) 

The Parameters

BB_std
BB_candle_period
BB_Length


Examples

DEFAULT_A_buy_value = 20 → buy zone begins 20% (of width) above LOWBB line. Ask price must be less than this value. DEFAULT_A_buy_value_limit must be less than 20 including negative numbers if used.

DEFAULT_A_buy_value = 0 → buy zone begins right on top of the LOWBB line. Ask price must be less than this value. DEFAULT_A_buy_value_limit must be less than 0 if used.

DEFAULT_A_buy_value = -10 → buy zone begins 10% (of width) below LOWBB line. Ask price must be less than or equal to this value. DEFAULT_A_buy_value_limit must be less than -10 if used.

DEFAULT_DCA_B_sell_value = -10 → sell zone begins 10% (of width) below LOWBB line. Bid price price must be less than or equal to this value. DEFAULT_A_sell_value_limit must be less than -10 if used.

HIGHBB

This buy/sell strategy is true when current ask/bid price goes above the HIGHBB threshold you specify.

BB values are percentages of the BB width. Width = HIGHBB - LOWBB and a buy_value/sell_value of +/-10 represents 10% of this width.
For a coin to be bought using HIGHBB, the ask price must be greater than the value of the HIGHBB price multiplied by (1 - buy_value expressed as a percentage).
For a coin to be sold using HIGHBB, the bid price must be greater than or equal to the value of the HIGHBB price multiplied by (1 - sell_value expressed as a percentage).


The Numbers

Valid Values: positive or negative decimal values
Frequent Values: from 100 to -100

100 = 100% of the BB width below HIGHBB. i.e. on the LOWBB line
50 = 50% of the BB width below HIGHBB. i.e halfway between HIGHBB and LOWBB
0 = on the HIGHBB line
-45.25 = 45.25% of the BB width above HIGHBB
-100 = 100% of the BB width above HIGHBB

Lower values are more conservative for buying and higher values are more conservative for selling.


The Parameters

BB_std
BB_candle_period
BB_Length


The Formula

negative buy/sell_value

Buy Price > HIGHBB + ((HIGHBB - LOWBB) * ABS(buy/sell_value)/100)
Sell Price >= HIGHBB + ((HIGHBB - LOWBB) * ABS(buy/sell_value)/100)

positive buy/sell_value

Buy Price > HIGHBB - ((HIGHBB - LOWBB) * ABS(buy/sell_value)/100) 
Sell Price >= HIGHBB - ((HIGHBB - LOWBB) * ABS(buy/sell_value)/100)

Examples

DEFAULT_A_buy_value = 20 → buy zone begins 20% (of width) below the HIGHBB line. Ask price must be greater than this value. DEFAULT_A_buy_value_limit must be less than 20 (i.e a higher price)including negative numbers if used.

DEFAULT_A_buy_value = -10 → buy zone begins 10% (of width) above the HIGHBB line. Ask price must be greater than this value. DEFAULT_A_buy_value_limit must be less than -10 (higher price) if used.

DEFAULT_DCA_B_sell_value = 0 → sell zone begins right on top of the HIGHBB line. Bid price price must be greater than or equal to this value. DEFAULT_A_sell_value_limit must be less than 0 if used.

GAIN

This MANDATORY sell strategy is true when current profit is greater than or equal to sell_value.

GAIN acts as the minimum profit level you are targeting and as such it is required that GAIN be used as one of the sell strategies you use. If you set a negative value coins can be sold for a loss.

The sell_value is a percentage of profit that must be reached. When calculating the price required to make this amount of profit the bot also accounts for fees (on Binance the bot assumes the full fee, not the BNB discounted fee.)

The Profit % (P%) column in pairs and DCA Logs shows the fee corrected current profit using the highest bid price and also the highest bid price with enough volume if DEFAULT_min_orderbook_profit_percentage is used.


The Numbers

Valid Values: Decimal values

0.5 = 0.5% profit after exchange maximum fees
1 = 1% profit after exchange maximum fees
2.85 = 2.85% profit after exchange maximum fees


The Formula

Sell Price >= (average bought price * (1 + sell_value/100) + fees

Examples

DEFAULT_A_sell_value = 1 → sell zone begins 1% above the average bought price plus fees. Bid price must be greater than or equal to this value.
DEFAULT_A_sell_value = -10 → sell zone begins 10% below the average bought price plus fees. Bid price must be greater than or equal to this value.

LOSS

This buy strategy is true when the price of the coin has dropped by the set percentage in the last 24 hours. The percentage is the 24h change specified by your exchange.


The Numbers

Valid Values: positive or negative decimal values.

A positive buy valueis converted to negative however buy_value_limit needs to be negative. For simplicity use negatives for both.

3 = 3% loss over 24 hours
-3 = 3% loss over 24 hours
-7.5 = 7.5% loss over 24 hours


The Formula

Buy Price < (price 24 hours ago) * (1-ABS(buy_value)/100)

Examples

DEFAULT_A_buy_value = -7 → buy zone begins 7% below the price from 24 hours ago. Ask price must be less than this value. DEFAULT_A_buy_value_limit must be less than -7 if used.

DEFAULT_A_buy_value = 7 → positive numbers are converted to negative. So result is the same as above.

SMAGAIN

This buy/sell strategy is true when the current ask/bid price is above (positive buy/sell_value) or below (negative buy/sell_value) the lowest of the two SMA lines specified. It does not matter if the fast or slow SMA line is lower, the bot always looks at the value of the lower line.

If a positive value is used the ask/bid price must be greater than (or equal to (for selling)) the value of the lower SMA band multiplied by (1 + buy/sell_value expressed as a percentage).
If a negative value is used the ask/bid price must be less than (or equal to (for selling)) the value of the lower SMA band multiplied by (1 + buy/sell_value expressed as a percentage).


The Numbers

Valid Values: positive or negative decimal values.

1 = 1% of the price above the lowest of the two SMA lines
0 = Right on top of the lowest SMA line.
-0.5 = 0.5% of the price below the lowest of the two SMA lines

Negative buy/sell_value

buy price < lowest SMA * (1 - ABS(buy/sell_value/100))
sell price <= lowest SMA * (1 - ABS(buy/sell_value/100))

Examples

DEFAULT_A_sell_value = 0.8 → sell zone begins 0.8% (of the price) above the lowest SMA line. Bid price must be equal to or greater than this value. DEFAULT_A_sell_value_limit must be greater than 0.8 if used.

DEFAULT_A_buy_value = 0 → buy zone begins on the lowest SMA line. Ask price must be greater than this value. DEFAULT_A_buy_value_limit must be greater than 0 if used.

BBWIDTH

This buy/sell strategy is true when the BBWIDTH is < the buy_value or >= the sell_value.


The Numbers

Valid Values: Positive decimal values.


The Parameters

BB_std
BB_candle_period
BB_length


The Formula

( (Upper Band - Lower Band) / Middle Band) * 100

Examples

DEFAULT_A_buy_value = 0.4 → buy zone begins when BBWIDTH is less than 0.4. DEFAULT_A_buy_value_limit must be less than 0.4 if used.

DEFAULT_DCA_A_buy_value = 0.5 → True when BBWIDTH is less than 0.5. DEFAULT_DCA_A_buy_value_limit must be less than 0.5 if used.

DEFAULT_A_sell_value = 0.7 → sell zone begins when BBWIDTH is greater than 0.7. DEFAULT_A_sell_value_limit must be greater than 0.7 if used.

OBV

This buy\sell strategy is true when: ​

If buy_value >= 0:
buy_value ​< OBV < buy_value_limit

If buy_value < 0:
buy_value ​> OBV > ​buy_value_limit

If sell_value >= 0:
sell_value >= OBV >= sell_value_limit

If sell_value < 0:
sell_value =< OBV =< sell_value_limit


The Numbers

Valid Values: Positive or negative decimal values.


The Parameters

OBV_candle_period
OBV_length - Must be less than 500
OBV_signal - Must be less than OBV_length


The Formula

If the closing price is above the prior close price then: 
Current OBV = Previous OBV + Current Volume
 
If the closing price is below the prior close price then: 
Current OBV = Previous OBV  -  Current Volume
 
If the closing prices equals the prior close price then:
Current OBV = Previous OBV (no change)
 
OBV-value = [ OBV_length - OBV_signal ] / absolute(OBV_signal)

Examples

DEFAULT_A_buy_value = -0.001 → buy zone begins when the calculated value is less than -0.001. DEFAULT_A_buy_value_limit must be less than -0.001 if used.
DEFAULT_A_buy_value = 0.005 → buy zone begins when the calculated value is greater than 0.005. DEFAULT_A_buy_value_limit must be greater than 0.005 if used.

ANDERSON

Anderson-DCA was an idea by a team member (called yea Anderson) that was implemented in the early days of ProfitTrailer. The idea was that you could make DCA buys using different triggers each time to try to get out of a bad position faster instead of using a specific indicator.

These days every strategy uses the same buy_trigger parameters as ANDERSON so there is no benefit (or harm) using it alongside other strategies. However if you don't wish to use any other strategy you can still choose good old ANDERSON.

This DCA only buy strategy is true when the price of a coin has dropped by the specified buy_trigger percentage relative to the average price you have paid for your current holding.


The Numbers

Valid Values: ANDERSON is unique in that it does not use a buy_value, only the buy_trigger that is common to all strategies.


The Formula

buy price <= Average Price * (1 - buy_trigger/100)

Examples
DEFAULT_DCA_A_buy_strategy = ANDERSON

DEFAULT_DCA_buy_trigger = -3
DEFAULT_DCA_buy_trigger_1 = -2
DEFAULT_DCA_buy_trigger_2 = -3.5
DEFAULT_DCA_buy_trigger_3 = -4

DEFAULT_DCA_trailing_buy = 0.2

In this scenario the DCA level specific triggers will be used for the first three DCA buys. After that, if the bot is allowed to buy more times, the DEFAULT trigger will be used for each level.

In our example the bot buys a coin for whatever price using the strategies defined in pairs.properties. Now the bot looks at the lowest ask price in the order book and watches to see if it drops below our buy_trigger. Once the Ask price goes below -2 the bot looks to trail back up by the trailing_buy amount. (See A Traling Story for more info on trailing)

If it successfully trails and is still below the buy_trigger ProfitTrailer tries to buy. After a successful DCA buy the average price is recalculated. and the bot now looks for the ASK price to drop -3.5% from the new average price. And so the process is repeated.

For the 4th buy onwards the default value of -3 will be used indefinitely as no level specific value has been set.

DISABLED

Disabled is used as a buy or sell strategy in place of another named strategy when coin specific strategies are used.

Example
DEFAULT_A_buy_strategy = LOWBB
DEFAULT_B_buy_strategy = RSI


XXX_B_buy_strategy = DISABLED


This has the effect of letting you use your default settings except for a specific coin, denoted by the XXX.
The result is that all coins will use the LOWBB and RSI strategies in the example, the coin that is set in place of XXX will use ONLY LOWBB, because the 'B' buy strategy has been disabled.
