Web Interface Guide


The Basic config editor is designed to make things simpler, easier to read and prevent typos from stopping ProfitTrailer functioning how you intended.

The Header is shown below:

  • HotConfig - Open a dialog box in order to enter HotConfig commands. (Only displays when active Config is selected)
  • ACTIVE - The name of the config ProfitTrailer is using.
  • EDITING - The name of the config that is being displayed/edited.
  • Delete - Click this to delete the configuration being displayed. (You will not have the option to delete the Active Config)
  • Save - Save any changed you have made.
  • New - Save the config displayed as a new config with a new name
  • Drop Downs - Described below.
  • Pairs - View/configure the file for the editing config.
  • DCA - View/configure the file for the editing config.
  • Indicators - View/configure the file for the editing config.

The left most drop down menu allows you to select a config for editing.

If we selected BTC Beginner the header would change as shown.

The next drop down allows you to select a specific coin for which you wish to change settings. Leave it set to DEFAULT to edit the overall configuration.

You can learn more about Coin Specific Settings from the FAQ.

Other things to change when GUI config is launched

  • Hotconfig only available in advanced
  • config menu gone
  • links to config menu
  • settings menu screenshot
  • public configs
  • Buy tab



Common Errros

Incorrect trailing value for GROW. Value should be between 0 and your exit value. Using DEFAULT instead

You sell_value and trailing_profit values are equal which means the formula used to calculate the new trailing_profit when using DEFAULT_trailing_profit_type or DEFAULT_DCA_trailing_profit_type will not work. The bot has defaulted to using the DEFAULT trailing_profit.


BUY and Sell Strategies

  • LOWBB can be used as sell strategy


This buy/sell strategy is true when

From this article on (much more info here, please read):

StochRSI is an oscillator that measures the level of RSI relative to its high-low range over a set time period. StochRSI applies the Stochastics formula to RSI values, instead of price values. This makes it an indicator of an indicator. The result is an oscillator that fluctuates between 0 and 1. Traders looking to enter a stock based on an overbought or oversold reading in RSI might find themselves continuously on the sidelines. Chande and Kroll developed StochRSI to increase sensitivity and generate more overbought/oversold signals. A move above 0.80 is considered overbought, while a move below 0.20 is considered oversold. Second, it can be used to identify the short-term trend.

The Numbers

Valid Values: Values between 0 and 1 are valid.

The Parameters


The Formula

StochRSI = (RSI - Lowest Low RSI) / (Highest High RSI - Lowest Low RSI)


DEFAULT_A_buy_value = 0.2 → buy zone begins when the calculated value is less than 0.2. DEFAULT_A_buy_value_limit must be less than 0.2 if used.
DEFAULT_A_sell_value = 0.8 → sell zone begins when the calculated value is greater than 0.8.
DEFAULT_DCA_B_buy_value = 0.3 → buy zone begins when the calculated value is less than 0.3. DEFAULT_DCA_B_buy_value_limit must be less than 0.3 if used.
