General Parameters

Bot Name

Create a unique name for your bot.

Account

Select the account on which the bot should run.

Base Coin

The index coin is your base currency for your crypto index. This is the currency that will be used to buy or sell other coins.

Template

With this template, regular orders will be placed. If the bot is set on "Spider Mode" it will only use this template when the buy or sell orders are set on 0.

(Trailing) Stop Template

This is the template the bot will use when a stop loss or trailing stop has been activated.

Total Trade Amount

This represents the amount allocated to the bot for trading, spread over all the currencies in the index.

Current Index Value

This is the value of the whole index at this time.

Allocate Profits

When enabled, the bot will add the profit made from sell orders to the "Total Trade Amount." Any losses incurred will not be subtracted.

Preserve Base In Allocation

Enabling this feature will prevent the bot from buying other currencies when the wallet amount falls below the allocated amount of the base coin.

Rebalance Settings

Rebalance Interval

This controls when the bot is allowed to rebalance the index. Stop loss and trailing stops are always monitored on a one-minute interval.

Rebalance Custom Interval

Custom rebalance interval for the bot defined in minutes.

Last Rebalance

Last time the bot has rebalanced the index.

Next Rebalance

Next time the bot will rebalance the index.

Rebalance Modes

Portfolio Growth

Portfolio Growth mode works based on the current value compared to the total index value.

Example

Total Trade Amount: 1 BTC
Coin ETH
Current price 0.1 BTC
Reserved amount 1 ETH
Allocated Percentage 10%
Buy Threshold 2%
Sell Threshold 3%

The bot will buy when 1 ETH equal 0.098 BTC and the bot will sell when 1 ETH equals 0.103 BTC.

Individual Growth

Portfolio Growth mode works based on the current price of the coin. When the price raised or lowest a certain percentage, the bot will buy or sell.

Example:

Total Trade Amount: 1 BTC
Coin ETH
Current price 0.1 BTC
Reserved amount 1 ETH
Allocated Percentage 10%
Buy Threshold 6%
Sell Threshold 10%

The bot will buy when the ETH price falls below 0.096 BTC and sell when the price rises above 0.11 BTC.

Spider mode

Spider mode works the same as the Individual growth mode, except it will place the limit orders in advanced like a Flash Crash Bot.

Example:

The coin is ONT
If the price is 0.001 BTC
The allocated amount is 0.1 BTC
Bot has 100 ONT
The buy/sell threshold is 1%
First sell order on 0.001001 BTC
The bot needs 0.1 BTC / 0.001001 BTC = 99,9 ONT
Bot places a sell order on 0.001001 for 0.1 ONT
The second sell order is on 0.001002 BTC
The bot needs 0.1 BTC / 0.001002 BTC = 99,8 ONT
Bot places a sell order on 0.001002 for 0.1 ONT

The AIB trades just in comparison with the allocated amount/percentage. With the individual or portfolio growth this isn't an issue. The bot waits until the order amount is big enough for the exchange to allows the order, but on spider mode, the bot trades on fixed price points, so this is a bigger issue. Next to the Buy/Sell threshold field is an info icon. This icon will advise a certain percentage for the threshold. This percentage be big enough for the first few orders to be allowed to be placed on the exchange. Exchanges with a high minimum trade amount/volume will have a high percentage. The advised percentage is affected by the allocated amount. The higher the amount, the lower the advised threshold will be. The info icon next to the coin dropdown will tell you the market minimum information. If the bot is not placing orders after it has been activated, check the bots log. It will show you the reason why.

Depending on the mode, this controls when the bot executes a buy order to raise the calculated percentage.

Stop Loss Price

If the price falls below this target, the stop loss will be activated.

Trailing Stop

The trailing stop will monitor the price from the moment the bot was activated. If the price falls by a defined percentage from the highest recorded price, the bot will sell all the coins and exclude the index.

Profit Table

Total Trades Made

The total number of trades made. Both buys and sells.

Total Bought

The amount purchased, to keep the Allocated Amount aligned, once the buy thresholds were reached.

Total Sold

The amount sold to keep the Allocated Amount aligned, once the sell thresholds were reached.

Fee Cost

Total fees paid from executing orders.

Unrealized Profits

When the bot has purchased more than it has sold. This will show the profit/loss when the additional coins are sold now.

Realized Profits

The bot realizes a profit when it completes a sell order. The buy costs of the sell order are matched based on the LIFO (Last In First Out) rule. This means the bot will sell off the extra amount it has purchased first before it uses the start amount. When it uses the start amount, it will use the start price as the buy price.

Realized Gain

Realized profit minus fees.

Current Price

The last known price of the currency.

Average Price

If the bot has purchased more than it has sold, this will represent the average price of that amount. If the bot hasn’t purchased more than it sold, this will represent the start price.
