XXX_bought_price = 0.123456 

Set the bought price if the bot could not calculate the price correctly. The price you put in here will be set as the current average price of your pair.

How to calculate the average price

This is just a very simple weighted average. Find each purchase's weighted average, (price + fees) x coin amount, then add those totals together to find the total cost, then use the total cost including fees and divide by the number of that coin you own.
You should also verify that the total number of coins you calculate adds up to the total amount of coins that ProfitTrailer shows you own.

(price + fees) x coin amount = cost for purchase 1
(price + fees) x coin amount = cost for purchase 2 
cost for purchase 1 + cost for purchase 2 = Total Cost + Fees

Total Cost + Fees
------------------ = Average Bought Price
Number of Coins

The new averaging logic will store the new data.

For the calculator, weight is the number of coins, data number is the purchase price.
