Getting started

BotManager.addBot(account_name='bitmex.sample.trading', strategy=strategy_mas_extreme, trader=trader_mas_extreme,
                  strategy_params={'timeperiod': '30T'},
                  trader_params={'leverage': LEVERAGE, 'deposit_percent': PERCENT_MONEY_TO_TRADE, 'max_num_of_positions': AVERAGING,
                                 'new_trade_to_average_percent': DROPDOWN},
                  bitmex_params={'test': TEST_EXCHANGE,
                                 'api_key': API_KEY,
                                 'api_secret': API_SECRET})

Main information that one have to change is hidden in main_loop.py.

  1. If you want to start from testnet.bitmex.com, then set TEST_EXCHANGE to True and put your credentials to

API_KEY and API_SECRET. 2. Then put percent of your deposit you want to trade in each trading execution (PERCENT_MONEY_TO_TRADE) and choose preferred leverage (LEVERAGE). Also you can set number of position for averaging (AVERAGING, e.g. 5) and percent of dropdown which will trigger averaging (DROPDOWN, e.g. 0.015). 3. Then set preferred timeframe for strategy (TIMEFRAME). Available variants are: 1m, 5m, 1h, 1d. 4. If you want change parameters of the strategy, go to strategies and choose prefered variant. For now, only 3 strategies are available.

Issues

Lots of people find this code not easy to run because of some dependencies. Here you can find libraries which are essential for succesful run:

  1. talib (https://github.com/mrjbq7/ta-lib)
  2. bitmex (https://github.com/BitMEX/api-connectors/tree/master/official-http/python-swaggerpy) And finally, your python must be at least 3.6 version for using f-strings (ex: f"Last prediction: {prediction}") Then you can successfully run the code.
