Trailing Down and More: July Update Overview

Table of contents

This article will shed light on the July update of Bitsgap’s trading bots software which brought you Trailing Down, Order Statuses, a dozen of visual improvements, and about a hundred minor performance updates and bug fixes.

New Features

Trailing Down. This long-awaited feature allows Bitsgap trading bots to operate outside the initial price corridor. Since July 29, this feature can be enabled for all freshly created and already existing trading bots.

Trailing Down is a solid addition to a set of risk management tools and allows Bitsgap bots to reduce the negative impact of a falling market on users’ portfolios.

Users are also able to set up an active range for Trailing down and modify it whenever it is needed via the Bot Options menu, like on the screenshot below.

Order Statuses. Another important update is the “Order Statuses” section in the Bot Options menu. There, users can perform a fast health check on all orders set by a selected bot and restore any misplaced order in the grid.

Fee Zone. Now it is highlighted in the chart. This field indicates that no orders can be placed there since the exchange fee would surpass a potential profit.

Important Changes

The Daily Average is now calculated correctly. Previously, occasions were noted when the Daily Average calculation continued after the bot had been closed.

Stop Limit orders are now always visible on the chart. After the web page was updated manually using the “F5” key, it occasionally caused the Stop Limit order to disappear from the screen.

Trading strategies are now depicted correctly when switching to futures trading. Previously, switching exchange from spot to Binance Futures could cause an irrelevant depiction of trading strategies. Users kept seeing SBot strategies, instead of those for Combo Bot.

Any bot with zero transactions launched off the price range now has a “Range” status. A trading bot that didn’t perform a single transaction previously had a “Trailing” status in the system.

Adding a new API key from the Trading section now works correctly. An attempt to add a new exchange will now redirect a user to the “My Exchanges” section.
