 +=== Why are my coins showing losses after the bot just bought them? ===
 +
 +
 +That is a trading problem not a bot or settings problem. Whether you use a bot or buy something on the exchange manually it will always start out at a loss. As soon as you buy a coin it will immediately be at a loss due to the bid/ask spread and the exchange fees. See here https://​www.investopedia.com/​trading/​basics-of-the-bid-ask-spread/ ​ There are a couple of things you can do about it. 1) You can set your spread setting to be more conservative to DEFAULT_max_buy_spread = 1.0 see here: https://​wiki.profittrailer.com/​doku.php?​id=pairs_config#​default_max_buy_spread and 2) If you are on Binance you can use BNB to pay for fees. You have to set your user profile on Binance to use BNB for fees and then fund BNB into your account. You will need to top this up from time to time.  Hope this helps. Happy Trading :-)
