To configure which trading pairs Gunbot should trade, go to Pairs or Easy edit.
You can use an unlimited number of trading pairs, across multiple exchanges.
To start trading on a new pair, just enter or select the pair name, pick the exchange and strategy and hit the Add button. When you want to temporarily stop trading a pair, use the Enabled toggle to disable the pair.
On exchanges that support it, a pair list is automatically provided in the correct format. For some exchanges you need add pair names manually.
Select the Use filter rules option to add pairs based on filters you set. This way you can for example easily add the top 10 volume USDT pairs.
When you're done, hit the Filter button to add pairs matching your filters.
Gunbot uses a standardized format for entering trading pairs, this allows you to use the same syntax for all exchanges you might use.
Where possible it uses this notation: BASECOIN-QUOTECOIN
All pairs with BTC as base currency are written like: BTC-ETH, BTC-ATOM, BTC-ETH
All pairs with USDT as base currency are written like: USDT-BTC, USDT-ETH, USDT-XMR
The base coin is the one used to buy another asset. Be aware that some exchange show pair names in the exact reverse order. **
A small number of symbol names need to be written in a slightly different way than the exchange lists them on their site.
Use YOYOW instead of YOYO
For a few symbols, the API display name is required. These are:
IOTA = IOT
DASH = DSH
QTUM = QTM
DATA = DAT
QASH = QSH
Use BTC instead of XBT
On Binance Futures USDT margined pairs, naming works the same as for spot trading: USDT-BTC, USDT-LTC, etc. For coin margined pairs the correct format is: USD-BTC-PERP or _**_USD-COIN-EXPIRYDATE. It's recommended to use the GUI to just select the right pair names. Set
market: futures to use USDT-margined pairs, set
market: delivery to use coin margined pairs.
Pairs on Bitmex use almost the same symbols as on Bitmex itself, but with a hyphen-minus between the two asset names. Example: XBT-USD
Pairs on Kraken Futures follow the following conventions:
Perpetual contracts: XBT-USD, ETH-USD, LTC-USD, etc.
Monthly futures: XBT-MONTH, ETH-MONTH, LTC-MONTH, etc
Quarterly futures: XBT-QUART, ETH-QUART, LTC-QUART, etc
Pairs on Okex Futures use the similar notation as on their site, with hyphens in between the different parts of the pair and swapping the symbols. Valid example: USD-BTC-201016
Pairs on FTX follow this pattern: XRP-PERP, BTC-PERP
Overrides are pair specific settings, overruling the assigned strategy. Every strategy parameter can be used as an override.
You can use this, for example, to set a different trading limit for a specific pair.
When adding overrides, you can choose from a list of all available strategy settings. See the strategy settings pages for which values are accepted for each individual parameter.
