Interface configuration

The MoonBot main screen can be conventionally divided into several sectors. The tabs with settings, header with key controls: order size, buy level, sell level, chart scale, volume buttons, order controls, drawing on the chart and other buttons. Buttons to manage strategies, reports and show markets. The main bot window with the chart and service information. Auxiliary buttons for managing orders, placing orders in iceberg mode and more.
Window with active orders. A window with logs. Field with additional technical information.
The MoonBot communicates with an exchange via an exchange API, which requires API Keys to access the API. The first time the MoonBot terminal is launched, API keys are required, which consist of a pair of API Keys and an API Secret.
The API Key is a public key and is used to register the MoonBot terminal.
API Secret is a private key used to sign orders. The private key is stored locally on your computer in encrypted form in the file BotConfig.bcfg, which MoonBot creates automatically. The private key is not transferred to the Internet!
To register API keys in the MoonBot terminal you need to go to the Settings – Login tab and from the “Exchange:” menu select the exchange you want to trade, for example, if it is “Binance (spot market)”, then select “Binance” and click Apply.
Enter the API Key in the “API Key” field.
Enter the API Secret private key in the “API Secret” field. And then click the “Register API keys” button.
If the keys are entered correctly, MoonBot will connect to the exchange server, your MoonBot ID will be displayed in the settings window and the main window will show “Connection OK” in the lower left corner. You do not need to re-enter the keys on subsequent runs of the bot.
Step-by-step instructions for creating and registering API keys are published on our website here: https://moon-bot.com/en/manual/api-keys/
Obtaining API keys on Binance: To register keys, go to API Management on the exchange website. Enter any name for the new keys, click API created. Enter the two-factor authorization code. After receiving the API KEY and API SECRET it is recommended to save them in a separate file (for security reasons Binance will not allow to view the API Secret in case of their loss and they will be hidden behind asterisks).
NOTE: Once the keys have been created, the permissions for the API must be edited, in particular the checkboxes permitting spot and futures trading must be ticked and then the changes must be saved, otherwise the placing of orders will not be possible.
IMPORTANT: It is also necessary to select “Allow access only to trusted IP addresses” and specify the addresses where the bots will work with these keys. If this is not done, the permission for spot and margin trading will only be valid for 90 days, after which you will need to re-edit the key restrictions and check the “Enable spot and margin trading” box.
If you plan to run MoonBot terminals for different exchanges at the same time; you can register keys in the same MoonBot terminal without copying it, and switch between exchanges using the exchange selection drop-down list. However, it is better to make a copy of the MoonBot terminal, select a different exchange there and register API keys from the other exchange.
PRO version owners can create multiple API keys in their exchanger account and register them in the PRO version for free. To do this you must:
1) Copy the PRO version of the MoonBot terminal to a separate folder.
2) Run MoonBot from this folder in administrator mode.
3) Make sure you have a working PRO version of the MoonBot running and that your MoonBot ID is green in the Settings-Login tab in the top left corner.
4) There, on the Settings – Login tab, click on “Register another keys”, enter the new API keys instead of the current ones and click on “Register API keys”. Be careful not to leave any characters from the previous keys in the fields and when copying the new ones, do not trap a space at the end.
5) After this MoonBot with the new keys will also become the PRO version.
In the very top left corner of the MoonBot main window you can see the name “Moon Bot Binance” and the current version number. The word “Binance” is taken from the connection menu of the exchange from the Settings – Login tab and in this case it tells us that this terminal is used to trade on the Binance spot market.
Similarly, if it says “Moon Bot Binance Futures”, this would mean that the terminal is connected to trade on the futures market of the Binance exchange.
The version number in the MoonBot terminal allows you to always check the history of updates on https://moon-bot.com/en/manual/versions-history/, and check if your version is up to date.
Be sure to use the most current version of the MoonBot terminal, in which case you will not only receive updates, but also fixes for bugs in previous versions.
Yes, this can be done and the name will appear on the top line of the main window after the MoonBot version number. This name is set by the user and is useful for knowing which terminal is open in a given case, as well as for identifying trades via Telegram. You can set or change the name of the MoonBot terminal under Settings – Advanced – Remote – This Bot name. Name of the terminal will appear after it has been rebooted.
The main button in the top left corner of the MoonBot terminal is the Start / Stop button, which allows or disallows you to place orders, buy and sell coins in the bot, either manually or automatically. To enable operation in the MoonBot terminal, you must click the green Start button, after which the terminal will go into run mode, and the button will switch and turn red with the word Stop, inviting you to stop the terminal when needed. That is, the normal operating state MoonBot terminal when you see a red stop sign on this button.
The MoonBot terminal’s basic settings are made on the Settings tab, in the Menu and on the main terminal window.
You can do this by clicking on the Pairs button at the top of the main window of the MoonBot terminal, indicating the current working pair in this bot. When you click it, you will see a list of pairs available for selection and trading in this terminal at this connection to a particular exchange. The current pair will be checked and can be switched to another one by clicking on it. When you switch to another pair, the terminal will reload and load new pairs corresponding to the selected position.
After clicking on the MoonBonus button, a separate window will open with information about joining our bonus program to receive a commission discount on your trades on the Binance exchange on the spot and futures market. If you are not enrolled in our rewards program, this button will list our rewards program representatives that you can contact to get enrolled. If you are already connected to one of them, you will only see it in the list and it will be the person in charge of the bonus programme. Being a part of the Bonus Program offers several advantages, first of all, you receive a rebate of part of your commission for trading on the exchange. 20% of your commission is from spot trading. As well as unique additional free options to the existing MoonBot functionality: a unique MoonHook trading strategy, activation of “Monitoring charts in separate windows” and “Price Emulation with Pencil” modes, as well as an auto-buy BNB commission option for trading in the futures market. This button can be hidden by checking the Hide MoonBonus button box in the Settings – User Interface tab.
Yes, you can do this by clicking on Config: Default and saving the current config or uploading a previously saved other config of yours with the MoonBot terminal settings. You can customise different colour schemes, configure various basic settings and use this functionality to quickly load the profile you want. All config files have an extension .bcfg and saved in the root directory of the MoonBot folder.
When you activate the Emulation mode through “Menu – Emulation Mode” in the MoonBot terminal, a red “EMULATION” will appear in the upper control area of the terminal to the right of the “Default Profile” inscription and you will start trading in a “virtual account”. All profits or losses from deals will be not real, in this case your real account balance is not used and data on placed orders and their execution is not sent to the exchange. This mode is used for training trading and testing your strategies without any risk to your deposit.
You can check this by clicking on the Menu tab at the top of the MoonBot main window and checking the “Emulation Mode” box. If the box is checked, the MoonBot is in Emulation mode and you can see the red label EMULATION on the main window, in which case all orders that are placed in MoonBot are not real, but emulated and no information about trades made in this mode is sent to the exchange. If you need to return to the real trading mode, you should go back to the Menu and uncheck the box “Emulation mode”, in this case the red label EMULATION will disappear from the main window.
In the top right corner of the MoonBot main terminal window, when a new version is available there will be a separate tab informing you of this.
You can click on this tab manually, the bot will then start updating and after a short time will install the latest up-to-date version.
Once the bot has been updated, the browser will open with the version histories page https://moon-bot.com/en/manual/versions-history/, where you can read what updates and fixes have been made to the new version of the MoonBot terminal.
The MoonBot terminal can be set to update automatically if you check the “AutoUpdate the bot” box in the Settings – Autostart tab, but keep in mind that the bot may update itself at the most inappropriate moment, for example when the BTC is falling heavily, and instead of an urgent close of your positions you will waste precious moments waiting for the terminal to update.
It is therefore recommended that with the “AutoUpdate the bot” checkbox, you also check the “Postpone AutoUpdate with active sells” checkbox, in which case MoonBot will not update while there are open positions.
Alternatively, you can uncheck these boxes and update manually and at your convenience when a new version becomes available.
The trading balance information that the MoonBot terminal receives via API from your exchange account is displayed in the top left corner of the main terminal window. This is the entire available balance in that currency, which is not in orders and which you can use to trade in the terminal.
If you use BTC to trade, the balance must be topped up in BTC, if in USDT, the balance must be topped up or converted to USDT and so on. If you have transferred money to the exchange, but the balance does not appear in the bot, then carefully check where the money is at the moment, maybe it remained lying in the top-up wallet (p2p) and therefore is not displayed in the trading balance account. In this case, to make the deposit appear in the terminal, you need to transfer funds from the top-up wallet to the spot or futures trading balance and in the currency you intend to trade with.
Here in the MoonBot terminal, you can quickly view information about the current bitcoin price in USDT, and, just to the right, you can see figures for the BTC price change in relation to its average 1-hour and 24-hour price, and in brackets you can see the average change in all altcoin prices across the market compared to the 1-hour and 24-hour prices. And if you click on this entry, the BTC chart will open immediately (only on those pairs that have a BTC chart). In addition, if you move the mouse pointer over these figures, you can see extended information, which will include more BTC price changes over 5 minutes and 1 minute. This information helps to quickly orientate what the current price of BTC is falling or rising, what the deltas of BTC and the market as a whole are right now. And you can quickly assess whether the market is falling (negative values), flat (near zero values) or rising (positive values). In addition, you can optionally set these numbers to be highlighted in red and the bot to signal a change in the bitcoin exchange rate by a certain amount – this will be an additional BTC rate change alarm. The alarm threshold can be set at the bottom of the Settings – Autostart tab, where you can check the “Blink the rate label If BTC rate changed” and “Alarm If BTC rate changed” boxes and select the desired alarm threshold.
Yes, this can be done. Just to the right of the information about the BNB balance there is a small button “Hide”, which allows you to hide part of the upper information field of the main MoonBot window and thereby enlarge the main chart area. This option is relevant for those who trade from a laptop and care more about the chart window than the additional controls.
Yes, this can be done by pressing the S9 button it increases the size of the Sell button scale by a factor of 10. This button is useful if there is a rapid large increase in price on the chart, when sharp movements upwards allow you to place an order by 10-20-30% instead of 1-2-3% respectively.
The MoonBot terminal’s chart scale can be changed using fixed scale buttons. For example, for spot trading, the scale buttons in the basic version have the following gradation: 100%, 50%, 20%, 10%, 5%, Auto. If you press the x9 button, the gradation in the scale buttons will increase proportionally by a factor of 10 and become respectively: 1000%, 500%, 200%, 100%, 50%, Auto. If the movement is not very volatile, you can work with small scales of 5-10-20%. If you see strong growth and the chart scale is not enough on the main screen, you can press the button x9 and switch to a larger scale. You can also click on “Auto” button and the scale will change automatically, depending on the volatility of the coin over the time period you see on the chart. To quickly adjust the scale within the selected button, right click on the chart and hold the cursor above or below.
The “Auto” button on the MoonBot terminal’s main window automatically adjusts the scale to the price minimum and maximum currently visible on the chart.
That is, if you expand the chart, the lows and highs will shift, and the scale will also change dynamically to accommodate them. This mode is used when you want to quickly adjust the scale depending on volatility.
Sometimes it can happen that a coin will suddenly start to plummet, and then, in Autoscale mode, the chart quickly adjusts to the maximum price swing and you see the whole movement, not just a small part of it.
Someone uses the standard scale and starts scalping on a 5-10% scale and then gradually moves to a larger scale, which allows them to sit out larger profit trades and not trade small movements.
On the MoonBot main terminal chart you see a grid that is divided into 10 vertical cells, one cell being one tenth of the number on the scale button.
If you have the 10% button pressed, one cell is 1% and you can visually estimate the size of the rise or fall of a coin. In addition, on the right side below the horizontal cursor line, a percentage of scale is displayed, using this measuring tool, you can quickly check the distance in percentage from the price line up or down.
You can disable or enable the display of the scale on the cursor bar in the Settings – User Interface – Scale Tool tab.
You can also measure the percentage of growth or decline using the “Rectangle” drawing element. You can do this by selecting it in the Pencil (Draw on the chart) button, which is the rightmost item. Then, while holding down CTRL, left click on the chart and while holding down CTRL, drag the line up or down. The line will become a rectangular area with percentages on the left side: up to measure growth, down to measure fall in price.
The tool is quite handy and complements previous methods of working with scale and measuring the percentage of change in the price of coins.
At each fixed zoom button on the MoonBot terminal, you can additionally adjust the zoom manually by half (up or down).
That is, on the 10% button, the graph can be manually stretched to 20% or narrowed to 5% with an arbitrary scale within this range.
To do this, place the mouse cursor anywhere on the graph, press the right mouse button and hold it down to zoom in up to 20%, with the graph visually zooming out or down to zoom in up to 5%, with the graph visually zooming in.
With this method, you can quickly adjust the scale of the chart without having to flip the fixed scale buttons. The manually scaled scale will only act on the current coin and new coins to be opened in the bot, when the 10% button is pressed, will open at 10% scale, ignoring the scaling.
If you want to reset the chart to the original 10% scale according to the button, click on it again and the chart will reset to the original 10% scale.
Yes, in the MoonBot terminal you can quickly toggle between the zoom buttons using hotkeys that can be set in the Settings – Hotkeys tab, using the “Scale +” fields to zoom in and “Scale -” fields to zoom out.
The MoonBot terminal has fixed zoom buttons which the user cannot change, but their pitch is sufficient to select a comfortable zoom for trading depending on the volatility of the coins. If a larger scale is required, press the x9 button and the scale figures on the buttons will increase by a factor of 10. You can also manually adjust the scale in some limits by stretching or shrinking the chart with the scale button selected. To do so, place the cursor on the graph, press the right the mouse button and without releasing it, swipe upwards or downwards.
To quickly centre the charts in scroll mode when zooming in, double-click the blue arrow button (AutoShift charts) on the MoonBot main terminal window.
On the main window of the MoonBot terminal to the right (just behind the s9 and x9 buttons) you can see a wide empty field, if you double-click on it, it will open a “Comment field” where you can write any text information: your notes, trading rules, bot name and trading pair. Such a field is convenient for those who need important information about the terminal in plain sight or who have many terminals and could easily distinguish one from another during moderation.
On the MoonBot terminal’s main window on the right-hand control panel, below the “Multi:, B:, S:” entries you may see a “Comment (double-click to edit)” if you haven’t already made a comment on any coin. If there is no such entry, move the mouse pointer to that place until the pointer icon changes to an “arrow with white rectangle”. Double click on that entry with your mouse or on an empty field at that location, and a window will open in which you can write a short comment on that coin. When you have finished writing a comment, click anywhere on the right-hand control panel or simply on the graph – the editing window will close and the comment caption will turn blue for light themes and yellow for dark themes.
For manual trading, you can activate “Mode: Manual” or “Mode: Signals” in both cases you will be able to place orders manually and buy and sell coins.
For automatic strategies, it is mandatory to switch the button to “Mode: Signals”, as only in this mode, auto strategies are allowed to buy, but of course, if the strategy is activated, it has AutoBuy=YES buy permission set and AutoDetect enabled.
In “Mode: Manual”, auto-strategies will not be allowed to buy coins in any case, you can only buy coins manually.
If you don’t need strategies to buy while you are trading manually, you can simply click “Manual Mode” and use only strategies detects, but no autobuy, in order not to disable detects or change autobuy settings in strategies from AutoBuy=YES to AutoBuy=NO.
If you need a universal mode of operation “both manual and strategy-based buying”, it is recommended to switch this button to “Mode: Signals”, because this mode is more universal, both for manual trading and for auto-trading by strategies.
On the MoonBot terminal’s main window in the top right corner is the “Help” button which, when clicked, opens a separate MoonBot FAQ window: a directory of reference information on the MoonBot terminal. In the search box of this window, you can type keywords and then press Enter or the Find button to search. All questions and answers where these keywords occur will be listed.
The MoonBot FAQ directory has a menu with questions and answers grouped into several topics:

Alternatively, you can read the full questions and answers for each topic by clicking the “Show All” button after selecting a topic. The MoonBot FAQ directory is regularly updated with new information.
On the main window of the MoonBot terminal is a button that can take two positions: “Autodetect: ON” or “Autodetect: OFF”. This button is responsible for enabling (ON-light) or disabling (OFF-light) auto-strategy detections. If autodetect is enabled (ON) then strategy detections will occur, if disabled (OFF) they will not.
On the right side of the MoonBot main window you can see red (sellers) and green (buyers) Order Book with horizontal bars showing the limit orders of other traders. The longer the line, the larger order is in the Order Book. On the right side there is more information with the pair name and on the right a cross to close this chart.
Just below is information with deltas for 3 hours, 1 hour and 15 minutes, as well as hourly and daily volumes on the current pair.
Below are the Buy, Cancel Buy, Panic Sale and Order buttons.
The Lock button is to add this coin to the bot’s global blacklist,
Asterisk button – add a coin to your favourite list,
Button Eye – where the movement is, the most volatile coins at the moment,
TradingView button, clicking on which will open an overview of the pair on the TradingView website,
The chart button will open a candlestick chart on the TradingView website
The Twitter button will open the Twitter page of this coin.

Below is the Share button for social trading, which you can read more about here: https://moon-bot.com/en/72-social-trading/
There are also two buttons below which enable iceberg mode on Buy or Sell orders respectively.
Even below you can see the minimum lot size on this coin and the maximum possible order size.
An indication of whether multi-order mode is enabled or disabled, the number of Buy and Sell orders on that coin and its current price.
If you double-click on “Comment (double-click to edit)”, a field will open where you can write a small comment on a specific coin.
The minimum lot value for a particular coin can be viewed in the right-hand pane of the main MoonBot window below the Buy and Sell buttons. This is an entry of the following form: “Lot: $10”, which in this example means that the minimum lot on this coin is $10. This is important to know in order to place orders above this value, otherwise orders will not be placed.
When you make a comment on a coin and then delete it, the “Comment (double-click to edit)” will be automatically removed from it.
In addition, after restarting the bot, the “Comment (double-click to edit)” will not appear on all coins, even those without a comment edit, as this implies that you have found and used the field and no longer need these prompts.
Coin comments are saved in the data file \ CoinsComments.txt, if you clear the contents of this file and restart the MoonBot terminal, the “Comment (double-click to edit)” prompts will appear again on all coins, but this is not necessary, because if there is no “Comment (double-click to edit)” you can still write comments on coins, move your cursor to this location so it changes its icon to “arrow with white rectangle” and double click the mouse.
If you want to make comments not manually one by one, but at once for some sample of coins, e.g. mark all football tokens, or all futures coins, or make a different entry for each coin from their archives, you can do this in a list.
To do this, write the data \ CoinsComments.txt file as a column in the format:
BTC=Comments1
ETH=Comments2
BNB=Comments3
LTC=Comments4
Save the file, reload MoonBot and all these coins will show all the recorded comments from the data \ CoinsComments.txt file.
If you change the design theme in the bot, first the comment colour remains from the old theme, to update the comment colour you need to reopen this coin chart already in the new theme. The correct comment colours are yellow for dark themes and dark blue for light themes.
No, the colour of the comment on the coin cannot be changed. The standard comment colours are: for dark themes it is yellow, for light themes it is dark blue.
Yes, you can do this by clicking on the green circle at the bottom left of the MoonBot terminal. This will open a small “Info” window with brief specifications: VDS mode on (ON) or off (OFF), if you are working on a local computer, this mode should be turned off, if on a remote server (VDS), then enable via Menu-System Settings – “VDS optimized mode” with a reboot of the MoonBot terminal.
Below are the API limits for the current connection to the exchange (for spot trading there will be one limit, for futures trading there will be another). Connections to the Web Socket – OK
Trades and Latency, which shows the delay of trades from the exchange as well as the value of the PriceBug parameter, CPU load, system load and memory usage.
At the very bottom is information on whether the separate Moon Streamer service is enabled (ON) or disabled (OFF), which can be configured by clicking on Settings. Moon Streamer is a separate server located in the Tokyo location, which sends current trades from itself over a UDP connection. If your direct connection to the exchange is not stable, a Moon Streamer connection can help you see the chart in real time. This is effectively an additional redundant channel for sending charts to your MoonBot terminal. If you’re trading on a VDS (remote server) there’s not much to gain by using Moon Streamer, it’s mainly useful if you’re trading on your local computer. Moon Streamer is an optional paid module which can be activated for Moon Credits in a separate window.
Ping is the response from your computer to the exchange, the lower the value the better, MoonBot will be able to place orders, buy and sell coins faster. For a local computer, ping can be up to 500 ms, for remote servers the ping is usually 10 to 30ms, so for autotrading MoonBot is usually placed on remote servers, while for manual trading the local computer is used. The second parameter after the slash is the delay in placing orders in milliseconds; the lower the value, the better. In the bot, there is additional configuration of methods of connection to the exchange (Original, Method 2, Method 3, Method 4), you can try to switch these methods and see, in which case the ping and order delay value will be minimal.
O: is the total number of all active Buy and Sell orders in the bot E: is the current and slash maximum number of errors in the bot
The “API Load” is the API load indicator. When you open new charts and place new orders, the scale will gradually fill up. If it is green, the load is small and within acceptable range, but if it is red and you hear a beep, it signals that the current API load is high or critical. If the indicator is red for a long time, after some time the exchange may issue a ban and prohibit receiving data on API from that IP address. During the ban you will not be able to trade. In this case, you need to analyze what caused the overload and reduce it, for example, close some of the charts or maybe you opened a lot of strategies, each of which began to expose a lot of orders. Then you need to disable some of the strategies or review their work, so that the number of orders does not lead to a load on the API. If the exchange sees that an increased number of requests from your IP above the permitted API limits, it issues a ban and blocks receiving data from your bot via API. Ban first written short-term for a few minutes, then exchanger automatically removes it, but if spam from you continues, the exchange again writes ban, but for a longer period. So be sure to monitor this indicator and do not overload API.
At the very bottom right you can see the type of MoonBot terminal version: FREE version (red lettering) or PRO version (red lettering) – this tells you which bot version you currently have activated.
You can click on this and this will open the Moon Credits window, which contains a list of additional paid modules that are activated for Moon Credits and allow you to expand the bot’s capabilities. This window can also be accessed by clicking on the
Settings – Unlock press the phrase “Moon Credits”.
The MoonBot terminal can receive text messages from Telegram channels and analyse them automatically. This requires downloading and running an alternative telegram client.
Important note! If you have many bots (more than 3) connected to the same telegram account (assuming different bots, servers, clients), this can lead to serious delays or even loss of messages, i.e. not all messages may reach the bot.
To receive bot signals from telegram channels you need to
1) Click the “Enable built-in client” checkbox and log in to your Telegram account directly in the bot.
2) Or you can download an alternative Telegram using the button on your screen (the standard bot app will not work) and log in to your account. You need to register a new Telegram account only in the official Telegram, and enter the data of your existing account into the alternative Telegram (registering a new account in the alternative Telegram may result in a ban). After that, instead of the download button, there will be a Start Alternative Telegram button, click it.
3) The list of channels you are going to work with is created manually by adding the required channels using the “Add Channel” button (the required channel should also be added to your Telegram account). The name of the channel should be written without the “@” sign and without the prefix “https://t.me”, for example, the channel https://t.me/HighestPump is called “HighestPump”.
4) Once the channel you have added appears in the list, tap on it, then in the Channels with signals line:@(your channel name will appear here)
The MoonBot stores all messages received in the bot\logs\LOG_ADD_ХХХХ-ХХ-ХХ (depending on the date). The MoonBot terminal also has a built-in Telegram client. To enable it, you need to:
1) Check the “Use built-in client” box.
2) Enter your phone number, SMS code, password.
3) If necessary, you can specify a proxy server (socks5 or MTProxy). If you cannot connect to Telegram without a proxy, the bot will automatically enable the built-in MTProxy, you can then change the proxy server to your own.
4) The built-in client can be run simultaneously with the alternative client, thus receiving signals from 2 Telegram accounts.
5) Activate/deactivate the built-in Telegram client by ticking the box in the settings.
Yes, the MoonBot can monitor multiple Telegram channels – this gives you the ability to monitor multiple Telegram channels and buy coins from any channel in the list. In addition, you can only buy coins that will be offered to buy from 2 channels at the same time. To mark multiple channels for monitoring, after adding them to the list, click on them with the left mouse button, by holding down the CTRL key.
If you have configured the MoonBot terminal to communicate with Telegram, MoonBot can automatically read signals to add certain coins to a temporary blacklist. These signals are given by other users in the @MoonInt general channel. For your terminal to start reading this channel, you need to join this channel.
How it works: Experienced users (with a rating of 4 or more), when they find a coin that is too risky to trade, right-click on the “Share” button in the main MoonBot terminal window and open the “Share market” window, which signals them to add the coin to the temporary blacklist.
The signal indicates the duration in minutes and the risk level from 1 to 3:
1) Pips – risks in trading up to 2%;
2) Deep – the risks even on deep bypasses are 5% to 10%;
3) Deadly – extremely dangerous (delisting, scam, threat of losing your deposit).
Your MoonBot, if you have enabled the “Use shared BlackList from the @Moonlnt channel” (Coins are beeing posted in our channel @MoonInt) checkbox in the Settings – Telegram tab reads these signals and applies them to all your strategies. In each strategy, you specify the level of risk, starting from which the strategy should not work (tab Filters in the strategies, parameter MoonIntRiskLevel, the default value is 2, that is, the strategy will not work, if there was a Deep risk level blacklist signal). If you put a value of 4 or more, the strategy will ignore all blacklist signals, because the highest level at the moment is 3 (Deadly).
Yes, MoonBot can read Telegram messages and detect signals to buy cryptocurrencies automatically.
To set up the detection of Telegram signals you must use the settings on the Settings – AutoBuy tab in the “Detect coins in Telegram” area, there set the “Advanced filter” setting and write the filters you want below. The bot can also detect signals in clipboard text, this can help test your filters – use the settings in the “Detect coins in Clipboard” area for this.
If the “Mode: Signals” button is pressed, MoonBot will buy coins based on the signals found automatically.
If the “Mode: Manual” button is clicked, the MoonBot will display market charts based on the signals found, but it will not auto-buy.
Yes, the MoonBot has special settings for this in the Settings tab – AutoBuy in the “Detect coins in Clipboard” area. The item “Auto BUY from Clipboard”: this sets up whether or not MoonBot will automatically put up a buy order when it detects a coin name on the clipboard. If you uncheck “Auto BUY from Clipboard” but leave “Listen Clipboard” checked, when a coin is detected, MoonBot will open its chart and start monitoring prices and orders, but it won’t buy the coin itself. The “Advanced filter” option must be enabled to configure the buy settings. “Listen Clipboard”: when checked, it will grab the clipboard, other programs will not be able to use it. If unchecked, MoonBot will not capture the clipboard at all, so as not to interfere with the clipboard in other programs. “Detect by Token” and “Detect by Full Link”: detect a coin by the name of the token in a message or by a full link to an exchange. For example, vTorrent coin (Bittrex exchange). If you set detection by full link, MoonBot will only buy it if the message contains a link to that coin. On the Bittrex exchange, it looks like https://bittrex.com/Market/Index?MarketName=BTC-VTR. If setting detection by token, MoonBot will buy when it detects the word VTR, highlighted by spaces, inverted commas, dashes, etc. For example, “BTC-VTR” or “VTR”. Token detection should be used with caution!
Yes, the MoonBot terminal has special settings for this in the Settings – AutoBuy tab in the “Detect coins in Telegram” area.
The “Auto BUY from Telegram” checkbox is responsible for automatic purchase when a coin is detected in messages in your chosen Telegram channels. The bot’s connection to the Telegram channel must be set up. If “Auto BUY from Telegram” is unchecked, the order will be placed according to the main settings of the MoonBot terminal, if checked, the orders will be placed according to the Telegram strategy.
You need to enable the “Advanced filter” option to configure the buy parameters.
Detect by Token” and “Detect by Full Link”: Detect a coin by the name of the token in the message or by the full link to the exchange. For example, vTorrent coin (Bittrex exchange). If you set detection by full link, MoonBot will only buy it if the message contains a link to that coin. On the Bittrex exchange, it looks like https://bittrex.com/Market/Index?MarketName=BTC-VTR. If setting detection by token, MoonBot will buy when it detects the word VTR, highlighted by spaces, inverted commas, dashes, etc. For example, “BTC-VTR” or “VTR”. Token detection should be used with caution!
The “Dont Buy Forwards” and “Dont Buy Reply” checkboxes determine whether or not to buy coins from a forwarded or reply telegram signal.
In the MoonBot terminal, the “Signals detection rules” settings area of the Settings – AutoBuy tab is for fine-tuning the parameters that will be used for auto-buy. In all Telegram channels, the name of a coin is given differently, some channels may use #,$,! symbols in front of the coin name, while others use the word buy, since all channels are individual and send signals with different syntax, you will need to configure your own filter for the desired keywords and parameters.

“Keywords (comma separated) in Long signal”: a list of keywords (separated by commas) that MoonBot looks for in the message. MoonBot will place a buy long order if it finds any of the words from your list in the message.

“Buy if distance between token and key word less then (N) words”: Normally, a signal message will have a keyword next to the token (for example, “Buy some #NEO”, with 1 word “some” between them). In other messages like weekly reports or general discussions, the keywords and tokens are further apart, which helps to filter such messages.

“Buy tokens tagged with”: a list of tags preceding a token. This option helps the bot distinguish real buy signals from empty information in the signal channel. For example, if you leave the default tags “#, $”, then “Buy #START” or “Buy $ START” will be treated as signals, whereas “START buy coins” will not be a signal.

“Blackwords (comma separated) in message”: a comma-separated black list of words in the message that MoonBot will not buy if detected. Typically, these are words used in old signal reports (“we gave #NEO signal last week”, “we called #TRIG”, “#NEO raised 68k”, etc.).

“Words count in message less then”: total number of words in the message (including links and numbers, dates, prices). Helps the MoonBot terminal to distinguish real signals from long general discussion messages.

“Words in message to buy at lower price”: In some cases, channels do not specify a buy price but suggest to buy at a lower level, then you should specify a list of such words and set how much lower from the current price a buy order should be placed.

If you have checked the box “Words in message to buy at lower price”, two additional sliders are unblocked: “Buy for market price N%” and “Auto cancel lower BUY after M minutes”.

“Keywords (comma separated) in Short signal”: a list of keywords (comma separated) that MoonBot searches for in the message. MoonBot will place a buy short order if it finds any of the words from your list in the message.

“Buy tokens tagged with”: if checked, you can enter comma-separated tags in the field below which will autopurchase

“Tokens without tags”: if checked, autopurchase will also be possible by untagged coin name, e.g. “VTS”.

“Links”: the autopurchase will be possible if you specify in your signal the link to the exchange where the coin to be bought is traded.

“Special”: use special token spellings, e.g. C O I N, (C) (O) (I) (N) etc.

“Buy if only 1 token found in message”: usually the real signal message contains exactly 1 token, so in most cases you should enable this option. There may be rare exceptions. If you uncheck this box, the bot will select a token that is repeated most of the time, e.g. an ETH coin will be selected in a message of the form: ” BUY #ETH, #ETH will go to the moon like #BTC”.

“Buy only if price specified in message”: MoonBot checks if there is a buy price in the signal message. If there is more than 1 price in the message, the bot will take the maximum price of all message prices that are lower than the current market ASK, but no less than 15%.

“Use specified price from the message”: MoonBot will use the price from the message to buy and will place a buy order at that price. If the price in the message is higher than the current price, the buy order will be placed at the market price.

If the option “Use specified price from the message” is checked, then an additional slider “BBuy for specified price +N%” is enabled, by means of which it is possible to increase or decrease the price from the message as a percentage.

“Use Stops, TakeProfit in message”: if checked, since the minimum price in the message is usually a stop loss, a stop loss will be placed at this level after buying the coin. The second price after the buy price is usually the price of the coin, at which the profit should be fixed, in this case, when it reaches this take profit, MoonBot will set a trailing stop and thus fix the profit, if the price goes higher, the trailing stop will accompany it higher, if the price goes lower, the take profit will be fixed at the last trailing stop position. The Sell order in this strategy should be raised higher than the price indicated in the message (e.g. by +30%).
Web hooks allow you to send a POST request to a specific URL each time an alert you set in TradingView is triggered. This feature can be enabled when creating or editing an alert in TradingView. Add the correct URL taken from the MoonBot terminal settings, and when an alert is triggered your command will instantly be sent to the MoonBot for execution.
Configure MoonBot to receive WebHook commands.
Go to the Settings – AutoBuy tab and check the “Detect by TV WebHook” box.
To the right of this item you will see the URL you want to use when setting up notifications in TradingView.
Also it is necessary to make some adjustments for MoonBot terminal to read tokens in messages:
1) Check the “Advanced filter” checkbox
2) Check the “Keywords (comma separated) in Long signal” box, unless you are using the keywords in the message as a filter.
3) The checkbox “Buy tokens tagged with” is needed to buy on messages where the token is specified as ***BTC. To do this you need to put # in front of the token to get for example: #ALGOBTC. Without this checkbox, MoonBot can buy if the message contains just a token, for example: ALGO.
4) The rest of the parameters are described on our website https://moon-bot.com/en/manual/signals-trading/ and you can configure them as you wish.
There are many options for messages and settings, you can customize them as you like.
Please note, the bot will not buy messages with such ALGOBTC token, you will need to remove the VTC or set the # tag, as described above.
Next, you need to configure the Telegram strategy as for normal Telegram signals using regular messages or you need to put a tick in the Menu strategy settings – AcceptCommands=YES to accept trust management commands in the messages.
Read more on this topic here: https://moon-bot.com/ru/78-web-hook/
Please note that you need to activate it in the MoonBot terminal in the Settings – Unlock tab for 100 Moon Credits in order to use the functionality of receiving commands instantly from TradingView with webhooks.
In order to buy coins using the MoonBot Telegram strategy, the following steps need to be taken:
1) In the Settings – Telegram tab, connect Telegram to MoonBot and add a channel from which you will receive coin buying signals.
2) On the Settings – AutoBuy tab: In the “Detect coins in Telegram” area, uncheck “Auto BUY from Telegram” and check “Advanced filter”.
3) In the tab Settings – AutoBuy: in the “Signals detection rules” area, check the boxes and settings, according to your needs to sort signals reading. More details about settings here: https://moon-bot.com/en/manual/signals-trading/
4) In the main window of the MoonBot terminal, click the Strategies button and create a telegram strategy in the strategies window:
a) In the Main – SignalType parameter select “Telegram”.
b) The ChannelName parameter should be set to the channel name from the list you created in the Settings-Telegram tab.
c) In the ChannelKey parameter, specify a keyword that matches the keyword from the settings tab – AutoBuy in the “Keywords (comma separated) in Long/Short signal”.
5) Next you need to set the rest of the parameters in the telegram strategy (buy conditions, sell conditions, stops, trailing, etc.).
6) Then click on the Save button and save the telegram strategy.
7) Then check the box next to the telegram strategy and click on the “Start Checked” button to activate it, a light will light up next to the activated strategy.
8) Wait for the buy signal from the Telegram Channel and check the operation of the Telegram strategy to buy the coin.

If you have difficulty with the setup, please contact the Moon Bot Public Telegram Group for free detailed advice: https://t.me/Moon_Bot_Public or take paid training at MoonBot Academy English (contact Kost Main https://t.me/kostmain for access to this group).
In newer versions of the MoonBot terminal, the Settings – AutoDetect tab with settings has been removed because as the MoonBot terminal evolved, the functionality of these settings was moved and added to the strategy settings. If you have an older version of the MoonBot terminal, do not use the settings in the Settings – AutoDetect tab and be sure to upgrade to the latest current version of the terminal.
Press the Menu button and tick the first item “Emulation mode”, which is intended to activate Emulation mode.
If this mode is enabled, the bot will immediately warn you that you will be switched to the emulation mode, in which real orders on the exchange will not be set and the real balance will not be affected, all transactions plus or minus will be reflected only in the bot and the exchange will not get. If you agree to the warning, the bot will switch to the Emulation mode and the red “EMULATION” inscription will light up. A checkmark will be placed in the Menu next to the phrases Emulation mode, which also indicates that Emulation mode has been activated. If you go back to the Menu and uncheck the Emulation mode, the bot will immediately return to real trading mode without additional warnings and the “EMULATION” inscription will disappear.
In “Emulation mode”, the bot will not care about the real balance, because in Emulation mode you can set orders on the chart, buy and sell coins, but this will not be real trading, but a training trade where the orders do not go to the exchange and are not spent balance from your account.
If there are funds on the real balance, then orders in “Emulation mode” can be placed more within that balance.
In “Emulation mode” you can even place orders on charts with zero real balance, but then the orders will be placed with a minimum order of approximately the equivalent of $15.
The “Emulation mode” in the bot is designed for testing strategies and their parameters, testing triggers, session parameters, EMA formulas, training manual and automatic trading. In addition, emulated orders can act as motion detectors in the form of beacons, which can then trigger real strategies with a real deposit.
The “Emulation mode” can be enabled globally for the entire MoonBot terminal through Menu – Emulation mode, or locally only for the strategy, if the MoonBot is in real mode and the strategy settings on the Main tab have the EmulatorMode=YES checkbox, which will mean that orders for this strategy will be placed in emulation mode.
Please note that emulator orders are placed faster than real ones, they are bought and sold quicker, because no time is spent on transferring data to the exchange and returning data back to the bot, it does not take into account the filling of bets and other things and reports in emulator trading can be more positive than in real trading.
Therefore, at the beginning you can test strategies and trade hands in the “Emulation mode”, but to get more accurate results, taking into account pings, data forwarding, price slippages, we still recommend to test real trading with a minimum order, which will give you results close to the real ones.
Clicking on Menu – Balances item in the MoonBot terminal will open a separate window “Assets”, which will contain coins that are on your balance, but are not in orders, not placed as limit Buy orders or Sell orders. Through Balances, you can sell the coins that are there for Market Sell or through the Order button, you can buy a coin at the current price with a Sell order. Please note that you may have coins bought at different times and at different prices, but when selling, they will be sold at Market, and when placing a Sell order, the buy line will be the current price of the coin. If you buy a coin and cancel the sell order, the coin will not be in the order and will be in your account balance. If you then go to Balances and click on Market Sell, the coins will be bought at the current market price with a Sell order, which you can control through the bot.
Warning! Coin sales via Balances are only available to PRO version owners.
Clicking on Menu – Transfer item in the MoonBot terminal will open a separate “Assets Transfer” window, where you can transfer funds from the spot balance to the futures and quarterly balances and back again. You may also convert small coin balances to BNB (once every 24 hours). The transfer function between balances is available when the checkboxes allowing trading as on the spot are activated, as well as on futures.
This parameter allows you to select two options for specifying the order size: either Fixed or Floating.
Floating mode is set by default at the bot’s initial startup and allows you to set the size of the order with the slider as a percentage of the free deposit. If you select a fixed order size, instead of a slider, 6 fixed buttons appear in which you can set the values you want in convenient increments. It is also possible to quickly switch between these modes if you click on the phrase “Use ХХ$ for buy order”.
The Buy order size can be changed by double-clicking on the button, which will open a field with an editable value where you can change the order size and then press Enter to fix it in the button. You can repeat this procedure for other buttons and choose a comfortable order size and step. You can switch the order size by pressing the desired button.
MoonBot has two options for specifying order size: Menu – Order Size – Fixed or Floating. The floating allows you to set the order size with the slider as a percentage of the free deposit; the fixed order size can be set on six buttons. For example, for the USDT pair you can set fixed order sizes on the buttons: 50, 100, 500, 1000, 5000, 10000 USDT and quickly switch between them by clicking on these buttons with the mouse.
Yes, the order sizes can be changed on the Settings tab – “Fixed Order Sizes” and each button can be assigned a different hotkey. For example: F1 for the first button, F2 for the second and so on. The order size can be switched by pressing the corresponding hotkey key.
Please note that order size on fixed buttons up to 999 is displayed in full size, from 1000 to 10000 – in abbreviated form “1k” without mathematical rounding, for example, value 1300 will be displayed as 1.3k, and over 10000 – in abbreviated form “10k” without mathematical rounding, that is, for example, 10400 value will be displayed as 10k, and 10600 value as 11k. Please keep in mind, that for FREE version order size is limited to $40 BTC equivalent, for PRO version the size of maximum order is practically unlimited. The minimum (Lot) and maximum (Max) order size can be seen on the right side of the main screen under Sell and Buy buttons.
There are two options under Menu – Sell Price:
1) If you select Fixed, then six buttons appear on the main window of the MoonBot terminal for fixed size Sell orders.
2) If you select Float, then a slider will appear on the main window of the MoonBot terminal to set the size of Sell orders smoothly.
You can also switch from one mode to the other by clicking on the phrase “Sell for [actual buy price]+X%”.
We recommend you to choose Fixed mode and adjust its buttons to your desired step, in which case you can quickly clicking the right button to select the appropriate level of sale under the current situation on the coin, for example, when the series of the same shoots at +5%, then you can click the button with Sell Price at 5% and your buy orders will immediately close at the desired level of +5% and you will not lose time by manually moving the Sell order. For example, if you had a low Sell Price of +5% set at +1%, then you would have to manually move the Sell order higher to the +5% level every time to get a larger possible profit. Or, if you had a high Sell Price of +5%, for example +6%, the Sell order would not close quickly because it would be above the price break and would have to be manually moved lower each time to the +5% level.
Yes, you can do so by clicking on the “s9” button to the right of the fixed Sell Price buttons, which increases the values in the fixed Sell Price buttons by 10 times, this mode is necessary when any coin has anomalous price spikes of +30, +50, +100% and the values on the buttons are 3, 5, 10%, then you can quickly change all Sell Price button values by 10 times and not change them manually.
Changing the value in the fixed Sell Price button is done by double-clicking the button, then changing the value to the desired value and pressing Enter.
A very well-proven option with fixed buttons for manual trading together with Manual strategies, which can be set up as you wish with a different number of orders in the grid and different spacing between them, while the Sell Price value of the placed orders in the manual strategy can be quickly changed by pressing the fixed buttons.
When you click on the fixed Sell Price button, you can briefly observe two dotted lines on the chart with levels where Sell orders will be placed (for longs the line will be indented plus and for shorts it will be indented minus from the middle spread line).
Yes, the Sell Price size can be changed in the Settings tab – “Fixed Sell Prices” and each button can be assigned a different hotkey. For example: Shift+F1 for the first button, Shift+F2 for the second and so on. The order size can be switched by pressing the corresponding hotkey.
In the MoonBot terminal you can split a Sell order manually into 3 parts or any number of parts (up to 20). The basic version of the sell order is divided into 3 parts. To do this, right-click on the sell order in the chart and select “Split order” in the menu. A similar splitting into 3 parts can be done through a hotkey combination in the field “Split Order” on the tab “Settings – Hotkeys”. If you want to split the order into any number of parts (up to 20), the hotkey combination in the “Split to XX (click to set)” field will do it. You can set the desired value of parts by clicking “Split to XX (click to set)”, then type the desired value (up to 20) in the additional field and press Enter.
Two items can be selected in “Menu – Settings buy price” and they change the settings in the slider on the main MoonBot terminal window, which is located above the scale buttons:
– Use 30-secs old ASK price (the slider changes to: Buy for [price before pump started] XX%)
– Use current ASK price (the slider changes to: Buy for [current ASK price] XX%
MoonBot always analyses prices and you can place a buy order based on the minimum price of the last 30 seconds (+/- X% depending on your specified buy conditions) or on the current market price (+/- X% depending on your specified buy conditions). Normally this parameter is set to “Use 30-secs old ASK price”, in which case this will keep you from buying at the peak of the price when participating in pummels.
Clicking on this item will open a separate “Settings” window where you can more finely tune the MoonBot terminal’s various settings.
Under “Menu – Manual Trading” you can select two items:
– Use Main Settings
– Use Manual Strategy
If you select the item “Use Main Settings”, you can trade manually on the main settings of the terminal by setting the necessary conditions: buy, sell, stop-loss, trailing, blacklists, etc., both on the tab “Settings – Main” and on the main screen of the MoonBot terminal.
The “Use Manual Strategy” item is for working with “Manual” strategies. Note that if there are no “Manual” strategies in the list of strategies, the item “Use Manual Strategy” will not be active.
Manual strategies in the MoonBot terminal are needed for more fine-tuning of basic and advanced parameters, such as placing a grid of multi-orders with specified step and order size in one click, with different sell order levels, second and third stops, trailing stops, BV_SV stops and so on. Using them greatly simplifies manual trading in the terminal.
You must create a “Manual” strategy and activate manual trading: Menu – Manual Trading – Use Manual Strategy. Then select the desired manual strategy from the menu below the BNB number. It is possible to create several “Manual” strategies, for example with different numbers of multi-orders and steps between them, as well as other parameters, and quickly select the desired manual strategy depending on the situation on the chart.
Yes, you can create several “Manual” strategies in the MoonBot for different volatilities on coins, with the dependence that the more volatile the coin, the wider the multi-order step and the higher the sell order level.
After creating “Manual” strategies in the MoonBot terminal, you need to select: Menu – Manual Trading – Use Manual Strategy, then click on the “Click to select manual strategy” in the main terminal window when first selecting manual strategies and then select the desired manual strategy from your list in order to place orders with it. In this case all main parameters for Buy and Sell orders, stops, trailing stops and other parameters will be set in the selected manual strategy.
Usually in manual trading, traders visually judge the situation and seldom use stop settings, as they usually close the position based on current conditions (chart movement, the behavior of other traders, the order book full, the walls in them, etc.), but you can also use stops by setting them in the strategy “Manual”. But if there is a lot of volatility, and you chose a strategy with short stops, then there may be cases where after entering the trade, you can immediately close at the stop in the negative.
Manual strategies, unlike other strategies, work immediately and may not be specifically activated, i.e. they work both when their light is on and when it is not.
This is done by enabling the “Filters on Charts” (Funnel) button, which will display in the upper left corner on the chart the condition that prevents the strategy from running on a given coin. Often this is not meeting the conditions of the filter parameters on the Filters tab in the parameters of the strategy.
To do this, click or press the parallel lines button “Draw only last completed buy order” on the main window of the MoonBot terminal, which is to the left of the Vol button.
If this option is activated, unused schedules will be closed after a set time, which can be selected using the slider under “Settings – Advanced – System”. If we set the slider to “Auto close charts after N minutes of inactivity” in this setting, the charts will close automatically after 1 minute. A large number of open charts in the background increases the load on the API, so we recommend properly set the charts to autoclose and not keep them open for long periods of time.
Clicking on this item will open a folder with logs where files with the extension .bin are stored. These are snapshots of completed trades with charts that allow you to refer to this archive of trades and analyse them further. But it is more convenient to do the same from the reports table if you select the desired trade and click on the name of the coin.
When you activate the option, an additional window will open showing you the buttons with the coins that are currently being pamped, according to your configured Pump strategy. When you click on this button you will have the opportunity to buy this coin immediately.
This function reconnects the bot to the exchange and is needed if, for example, you have lost trades crosses on the chart or something happens short-term communication problems.
To do this, draw a graphical element, e.g. “horizontal line”, right-click on it and select “Alert” from the menu. You can remove an Alert by right-clicking again and selecting “Remove” from the menu. Other than that manage the alerts can be displayed in a separate window that can be called up via Menu – Alerts.
These are acoustic signals which are activated on the drawing lines on the chart and allow you to be alerted when the price crosses an alert line. That is, you can draw horizontal or inclined levels or other graphical elements on the chart with the CTRL button pressed, then right-click on this element and select Alert, after which the line will change its colour and become a signal line.
If the price crosses such a signal line, an audible signal is emitted, which will be played with a set duration and a set number of times.
To the right and above the name of the trading pair there is a button with the name of the coin on which Alert was triggered and if you click on it, it will open a chart of that coin and then you can make the necessary trading decision according to the situation.
The alerts allow you to set them up in advance on the coins you want, so you don’t have to look at the situation every minute to see whether the price has reached important levels or not, but only when MoonBot alerts you if these events occur.
The table with the current Alerts can be called from “Menu – Alerts”, or from the Draw on the chart item menu in the “Pencil” button of the Alerts button.
In this table you can see the list of alerts, on which coin and on which kind of drawing item it is set, with date and time when the alert was set, and you can also choose the duration of the alert in seconds, choose its sound and number of times the alert repeats.
In this table with alerts you can also clear some or all of the alerts to avoid searching for them for a long time through all coins. In this case after the Clear button is pressed the graphic item will remain on the chart, but the Alert will be removed from it.
In the MoonBot terminal itself, this can be done by selecting Menu-Reset Session or by using telegram commands:
1) ResetSession coin | ALL
reset sessions on coin or on all markets
2) ResetSession ALL
this command will reset to zero all old sessions on ALL coins and all new sessions and all cPlus and cMinus counters on ALL coins across all strategies
Selecting this option allows you to zero all sessions on all coins. The session is the total result of your trades on a particular coin since the first time the bot was run or since the last time the session was zeroed. The session can be zero, positive, or negative based on the sum of all trades made by any strategy on that coin. Strategies have parameters that use this parameter in their work and can, for example, stop a particular strategy if it took a certain loss, which is fixed by the session. The trader may not zero the session at all, or may optionally zero the session at the beginning of each trading period (day, week, month), for example, to see the coin trading results at the end of the period.
This is a very useful option, but it only works if you have activated the optional “Load Charts” paid module, which allows you to download charts from the trading history from our servers. With the “Load Charts” module you can re-create the line on the chart when the connection on your side is down or you have shut down your PC for some time, in this case, without the chart loading you will have gaps in your trades, so you will not see what the coin was at the time of shutting down. At the moment, chart loading works on the spot market only for BTC, USDT and BUSD pairs, and on the futures market only for USDT pairs.
Selecting the “Menu – System Settings” option will open a separate window with a selection of additional functions:
– Use GPU Canvas
– Antialiasing
– Use ClearType
– RepaintOnMouseOver
– Use Direct2D
– Ignore Scale
– Smooth Charts scrolling
– Local Trades Time
– Fast OrderBook updates
– Use memory for charts: XX%
– FPS
– VDS optimized mode
– Login (Your_Login) and Password
– AutoLogin
– Autostart on windows startup
– Reset AutoLogin
It is possible to disable some settings or reduce the FPS if you have a weak PC. If you have activated the Moon Scalper module, you can enable the Smooth Charts scrolling checkbox and the chart will move more smoothly. In addition, if you trade on a dedicated server, then you must necessarily check the box “VDS optimized mode”, which reduces the load on the dedicated server. In the same menu you can also set up AutoLogin in Windows on server restart.
For the MoonBot chart to be smooth, you must have the Moon Scalper module activated. You can activate this module in the “Settings – Unlock” tab. Then go to “Menu – System Settings” and check the “Smooth Charts scrolling” option. In this case, the chart will move smoothly.
You should do this for auto-trading strategies that need to place orders and close them quickly. The lower the ping, the more likely it is that your MoonBot will buy and sell coins faster than others. Optimal ping on dedicated servers is 10ms, and, for example, for exchanges Binance and Huobi you should choose servers with location in Japan (Tokyo), as in this location servers of exchanges are located and in this case there will be the lowest delays.
After installing the MoonBot terminal on a dedicated server (VDS), go through the Menu – System Settings to the System Settings window and check the “VDS optimized mode” option and restart the MoonBot in administrator mode. Enabling this mode saves resources when running the MoonBot terminal on a dedicated server (less memory and CPU are consumed by storing and rendering graphs, and more resources are devoted to running the algorithms).
You can take advantage of our following tips for setting up dedicated servers (VDS) for autotrading using the MoonBot terminal.
1) In Menu – System Settings – check the box “VDS optimized mode”. It is highly desirable to set it, as this option saves server resources, less memory and CPU are spent on storing and drawing of charts, more resources are allocated to the algorithms.
2) In Menu – System Settings – set up auto-login in windows: enter your login and password from your Windows account and click “AutoLogin” button. You can also add the MoonBot terminal to autorun. To do this, click the “Autostart on windows startup” button in the same settings menu and restart your server for verification (hot restart via VDS control panel), the MoonBot terminal should automatically start and continue its operation after the operating system boots.
3) Be sure to disable Windows and Defender updates! Otherwise, during update the system may close the bot, and the orders will remain hanging on the exchange.
4) Be sure to disable “Automatic Daylight Saving Time and back” on the VPS, or better set the time zone to “(UTC) Time in UTC”.
5) When running Mshots with short price interval (up to 0.5% of the difference between MshotPriceMin and MshotPrice), it is recommended to use new parameter MShotAddDistance=50, and MShotUsePrice=Trade. In this case, the price for order rearrangement will be taken by the price of the last trade, and the bot will rearrange orders faster. This is especially relevant when trading futures.
6) In strategies focusing on fast trading (MoonShot with short interval, MoonStrike, Drops with small drawdown) it is recommended to use a non-zero value of the HFT parameter (an integer).
7) In tab “Settings – Autostart” we recommend to enable option “Auto Stop if errors level > = 3”, number of errors API should be equal to 3 or 4. Restart at the earliest after 20 minutes.
8) You can also use the “Auto Stop if Ping > 1000 ms” checkbox in the “Settings – Auto-Start” tab. The ping threshold is adjustable from 100ms to 2000ms. If the ping has increased, then most likely you have a problem with the internet or lags occur on the exchange, in which case there is a great risk of losing order controllability and then you can use this protection to avoid trading in times of high pings.
Clicking on this item in the bot’s log will show information about all purchases and sales of a coin from your exchange account. To do this, select a coin and open its chart to the full screen and select in the Menu – Orders History. After that all data will be in your log: order id, dates of buying and selling, number of coins, and other data. But keep in mind that the exchange does not give all data for the entire trading history, but only the last 1000 records for all coins. And if the last 1000 trades included this coin, you will see it in the bot’s log.
Also a very useful feature, but it only works if you have the optional Moon Streamer paid module activated.
Clicking on this item will open a separate window where you can enable and configure the Moon Streamer service, which is a separate server located in the Tokyo location that sends the current trades from itself to your computer over a UDP connection. If your connection to the exchange fails and trades are momentarily lost, then the MoonStreamer connection can help you see the chart in real time.
If trading on a VDS (remote server) there is no benefit to using Moon Streamer, it is useful mainly if trading takes place on a local computer.
Clicking on Menu – News will open a separate “Important News” window with important news and advice on the MoonBot terminal.
If you need to close the bot altogether, you can do so with this item or with the cross in the top right corner of the bot’s main window.
From the MoonBot main terminal screen, press the “Reports” button, which will open a separate table that shows all your trades line by line.
Under “Order Status” there is a menu where you can select orders with different statuses:
– All show all orders active and closed
– Active only – show active orders only
– Closed only – show closed orders only
– All incl. deleted – show all orders that are active and closed, including deleted ones.
Nearby you can select the period for which you want to view the report and also show or hide some columns in the report.
The MoonBot terminal’s main screen, click the “Reports” button, which will open a separate table that shows all your trades line by line.
To see the report of your trades made in the “Emulation mode”, you need to tick the box next to the word “Emulator” and the table that will appear will contain only emulator trades. If to remove a tick mark, we will see the table with other data already with transactions at real trade taking into account our real deposit.
From the MoonBot main screen, click the “Reports” button, which will open a separate table that shows all your trades line by line.
If you need to view trades for a specific period of time, check the “From” and “To” box and set the desired date and time underneath. If you need to view the report from a certain date to the current day, you can either uncheck “To” or set a future date under the “To” checkbox, for example the end of the current year.
From the MoonBot main screen, press the “Reports” button and a separate table will open showing all your trades line by line.
For a quick report for today, you can check the box next to the word “Today” and set the time.
In this case you can see all today’s deals starting from the time you set, if it is 00:00 then all deals of the day from 00:00 will be shown in the report, if you set for example 12:00 then you will see deals of today, but from 12:00 till the current time.
From the MoonBot main terminal screen, click the “Reports” button and a separate table will open, showing all your trades line by line.
At the top of this window, you can see two filter fields, which are useful for quickly sorting the information in the table by coin, strategy, profit, loss, and so on.
For example, you can enter a coin name and get a list sorted only by that coin.
Or you can enter a strategy name and obtain data only for this strategy.
The second field will help you to get more detailed information in the pre-sorted report, for example, you can write a minus sign in this field and see only all minus trades in the report or write a plus sign and see only all plus trades.
From the MoonBot main screen, click on the “Reports” button, which will open a separate “MarketsTable” that shows all your trades line by line.
In the upper right corner, click on the spanner icon and an additional settings menu will open on the right.
In the “Lines” field you can set how many visible rows you want to display in the reports table (from 50 to 1000). Total results of deals, which are displayed in the lower right corner of the table with reports, are still counted for all deals of the selected time period, including those not visually displayed in the table with the report. Note that the lower this number is, the faster the reports run.
To view a complete report of transactions, click on the button “Export to Excel”, unload the report and further review and analysis of this report in Excel.
From the MoonBot main screen, press the “Reports” button, which will open a separate table that shows all your trades line by line.
You can change the columns displayed in the report and leave only the columns you need at the moment.
You can set up which columns to show and which to hide by clicking on the icon with a spanner in the upper left corner of the reports window.
This will open a list of column names on the right, if checked the column will be displayed in the table, if unchecked the column will be hidden.
You can set the option to compress columns or not, and also to display in the report the average order with or without a leverage.
From the MoonBot main screen, press the “Reports” button, which will open a separate table that shows all your trades line by line.
In the top right corner of the reports window there are two buttons to export the report into .csv format or into .xls format for further analysis and sorting in Excel or third-party programs.
The main MoonBot screen will open a separate table that shows all of your trades line by line. Below we see the main tabular field each line is one transaction, data on which is summarized in columns. Coin – name of Coin BuyDate – date of coin purchase CloseDate – date of sale of the coin Quantity – amount of coins purchased and sold, if these two numbers are equal, all bought coins were sold, if they are not equal, they are partly remained on your account or spent on commission if you did not use BNB coins for commission BuyPrice – the price at which the coin was bought SellPrice – the price at which the coin was sold Spent BUSD – the money spent on the order in the currency of the currency pair (in this example the pair BUSD) Gained BUSD – returned funds to the balance from the order in the currency of the trading pair (in this example the pair BUSD) Profit BUSD – profit or loss in the currency pair (in this example the pair BUSD) ProfitUSDT – profit or loss in USDT to the second decimal place and colour marking (green – positive trades, red – negative trades) Profit – profit or loss in percents by leverage ProfitAbs – profit or loss in percents without leverage Lev – leverage size for futures trading Source – order type (manual/automatic/signal) ChannelName – name of the strategy the trade was executed by or the Manual record if the trade was executed manually or the telegram channel name if the buying was performed by the telegram strategy Comment – comment that shows the strategy type and what parameters the coin had when it was bought (deltas, volumes, latency, pricebags and other) SignalType – signal type, if Emulator, the trade was executed in emulator mode, if Auto, the trade was executed in automatic mode. SellReason – the reason for the sale – this column indicates the reason for which the order was sold: Sell Price – the sale occurred when the price reached the placed Sell order, and the position of the Sell order could be changed manually, but without applying the corrective parameters PriceDown and SellLevel, Manual PanicSell – the sale occurred forcibly, after we clicked on the Panic Sell button on the main terminal window and closed the order ourselves. StopLoss AutoActivated – the sale occurred after the stop-loss was activated on the coin. Trailing – the sale occurred by trailing on the main settings or strategy settings on the “Stops” tab. Auto Price Down – the sale occurred when the Sell order was lowered according to the strategy settings and the value in the PriceDown parameters on the “Sell order” tab. Sell Level – the sale occurred when the Sell order was adjusted according to the strategy settings and values in the SellLevel parameters on the “Sell order” tab, and so on. Status – the status of the order is finished (the coin was bought and sold), active – active order (the coin was bought, but not sold yet). dBTC – BTC hourly delta d24BTC – BTC delta for 24 hours dMarket – hourly market delta dM24 – 24 hour market delta bvsv – ratio of sold orders to bought orders at the moment of the signal, the interval is taken from the strategy parameters BV_SV_Kind and BV_SV_TradesN on the Stops tab dBTC5m – BTC delta for 5 minutes Pump1H – hourly growth delta Dump1H – one hour delta drop d24h – 24h coin delta d3h – 3 hours coin delta d1h – delta per coin in 1 hour d15m – coin delta for 15 minutes d5m – coin delta for 5 minutes d1m – delta per coin for 1 minute dBTC1m – BTC delta for 1 minute PriceBug – the quantitative value of the pricebag Vd1m – one minute coin volume H. Vol – hourly volume of a coin D. Vol – daily coin volume.
The delta data helps us to further analyse in which cases and in which delta ranges we managed to take more profits or incur losses. If we find out for ourselves that there are a lot of negative trades in any of the ranges, we can adjust filters in the strategies and prohibit strategies from working in these ranges.
All the strategies, except for MoonShot, fix these deltas at the time of the detection and at the time of placing a buy order. For the MoonShot strategy, these parameters are fixed in the report at the time of buying the coin, since the MoonShot strategy has no detection, and its orders are placed in the stack and wait for a shoot-through and buy of the coin.
Yes, if you click on the “Reports” button and open the reports table, you can sort the column names in descending, ascending or alphabetical order by clicking on the header.
From the MoonBot main terminal screen, click on the “Reports” button and a separate table will open showing all your trades line by line.
Clicking on the name of the coin in the table itself will open the “Pump Helper” window, which will open a snapshot of charts and deals on them, these reports are also interactive, they can be stretched horizontally or vertically, and you can zoom to better view the entry and exit points of the deals. In addition, the deltas for 3 hours, 1 hour and 15 minutes, as well as the hourly and daily volumes of the coin, will be recorded on this mini chart.
Yes, if you select a particular coin in the report, the name of that coin is also highlighted in blue in the info area below left and if you click on it, you can immediately open the current chart of that coin in the main bot window.
From the MoonBot main screen, press the Reports button and a separate table will open showing all your trades line by line.
Below the tabular data on the right side will be a general report on the selected data according to the date and filter settings.
– This report will display the following data:
– Number of orders in the selected report
– Average order size in the currency pair without and with leverage
– Total profit or loss amount
– Total profit or loss percentage of an average order.
On the MoonBot main screen, click the Reports button and a separate table will open showing all your trades line by line. On the bottom left you can see the “Important” parameter, if you click on a trade important to you in the report and check it, you will prohibit the bot to delete the chart of this trade after a set time (by default, after 7 days, which is set on the Settings-Special tab). Besides, orders marked with this checkbox can be quickly sorted in the report if you write “impo”, short for “important”, in the filter field.
From the MoonBot main screen, press the “Reports” button and a separate table will open showing all your trades line by line.
Click on the line you want and at the bottom of this table in the information window, you can see more detailed data on the trade:
– Date of deal closing
– Real or emulator trading mode
– Name of strategy
and system parameters of the bot:
CPU load, system load, API limits, PriceLag percentage, Latency, Ping and other data.
From the MoonBot main screen, press the “Reports” button and a separate table will open showing all your trades line by line.
You can selectively delete some or all rows of trades from this report by clicking on the “Delete” button.
If you then want to see a report with deleted trades, you can do so via the menu “All incl. deleted” (show all active and closed orders, including deleted orders).
On the MoonBot main screen, click on the “Show Markets” button and a separate “MarketsTable” will open, where you can find a list of coins that are available to trade on a given trading pair. In addition, in the same table you can sort by various parameters of coins: daily or hourly trading volume, deltas in 24 hours, 1 hour, 15 minutes and other parameters.
From the MoonBot main terminal screen, click on the “Show Markets” button and a separate “MarketsTable” window will open, where you can find the “Market” column, which shows the names of the coins on the current trading pair.
The “Vol.” column in the “MarketsTable” is the daily volumes on the coins. Coins with smaller daily volumes are better suited to pumps.
The “H.vol” column in the “MarketsTable” is the hourly volume on the coin. If the hourly volume exceeds (daily volume)/24 by several times, it means that the coin has already started buying up in advance, in which case the probability of a successful pamp is low.
The ASK column in the “MarketsTable” is current coin prices.
The “H. High” column in the “MarketsTable” is the hourly highs of the coin prices.
The “Buy x4” and “Buy x2” columns in the “MarketsTable” are the volume of offers to buy at 1/4 and 1/2 of the current price, respectively. In other words, the volume of support and fill in the Order Book.
The “sell x2”, “sell x3”, “sell x4” columns in the “MarketsTable” are sell volumes at 100% of the current price, 200% of the current price, etc. The smaller the sell x2 wall, the more the price can rise when the pounding takes place. The presence of buy x2 support also increases the probability of a successful sell x2.
The “24h Delta” column in the “MarketsTable” is the daily coin deltas.
The “h.Delta” column on the “MarketsTable” is the hourly coin deltas.
The “15m Delta” column in the “MarketsTable” is deltas on 15 min coins.
The “PumpsCount” column in the “MarketsTable” consists of two numbers: the number of pumps of a given coin in a week and the average probability to sell a coin at a higher price when bought at a random point in time. This parameter allows you to estimate the risk of staying with the coin you bought and getting out of the pumps on another day without a loss.
The “72h channel” column in the “MarketsTable” contains two figures: the average hourly price change over the last 3 days and the ratio of the minimum to maximum daily volume over the last 10 days excluding pummels. These parameters allow estimating the influence of fundamental reasons on the trend. That is, for example, if a coin goes down in value after an adverse news release, the probability of breaking that trend with a jump is low; conversely, if a coin has recently started rising, a jump of that coin may draw additional attention to it, and growth will continue even more.
The “Pump Q” column in the “MarketsTable” is a notional value that describes the suitability of a coin for a pumps.
The “PriceStep” column in the “MarketsTable” is a price step (the first value is the price step on the current pair, the second value is the price step on the BTS pair). That is, you can estimate how square a coin is. On USDT there are no square coins, but on BTC there are a lot of coins with very big step of price, and it is visually displayed in order book, that is why such coins are called “square”.
The “#Q” column in the “MarketsTable” is the number of open orders on each coin.
Yes, if you click on the header with the column name in the “MarketsTable”, you can sort in alphabetical order as well as in ascending or descending data order.
To do this, you need to click on the “Show Markets” button, open a separate “MarketsTable” window, stand on the bottom coin from the list, right-click on it in the additional menu and select “Copy markets above selected”. All coins from the top coin up to the selected one will be copied to the clipboard, after that you can copy them into notepad or Excel and use them for your needs.
On the main MoonBot screen, click on the “Show Markets” button and a separate “MarketsTable” will open, displaying data on the coins traded on the current pair.
In the bottom right corner of the “MarketsTable” there is an “Export to csv” button that allows you to export data from this table into .csv format for further analysis and sorting in Excel or other third-party programs.
On the main window of the MoonBot terminal, click on the “Show Markets” button and in the opened “MarketsTable” window on the bottom left there is a field with a filter for quick search of coins. You can also check “Hide BL” and hide the coins that are on the black list, so that even if there is a high volatility on them, you won’t have to show them in MarketsTable and manually open their charts. The button with green arrows allows you to refresh “MarketsTable” and at the same time restore the sorting of coins by the date of their addition to the exchange. The “Manage Leverage” button (for MoonBot futures terminal) has an additional menu for working with orders, margin type, leverage and maximum positions. The “Close ALL orders” button will close all active Sell orders after a warning by setting V-STOP to [buy +1%] and activate Panic Sell on these orders. The “Cancel ALL orders” button on the spot market will cancel all buy orders you have on your exchange account, even those placed using other terminals, and on futures this button will also cancel all close orders, even if they were not placed in the MoonBot terminal. The “Export to csv” button will allow you to unload this data from “MarketsTable” into a separate file with a .csv extension for further processing in third-party programs.
To do this, click on “Show Markets” button and open “MarketsTable” on USDT pair. Click on the last coin in the list, right-click on its name, select “Copy markets above selected” and copy the list of all coins in the USDT pair to the buffer. Then open the MoonBot terminal on BUSD pair and paste this list to the global black list in Settings – Main tab. Then click on “Show Markets”, open the “MarketsTable” on the BUSD pair and check the “Hide BL” box in the lower left corner to hide all coins that are in the global blacklist in this table. All coins on the USDT pair that match the BUSD list will be hidden by this filter and the table will only have a list of coins that are only on the BUSD pair. These can then also be copied to the buffer for further use of this data for your own purposes.
The “Show BID\ASK lines” button shows or hides the current buyer and seller price lines, which are formed by limit orders in the order book of buyers BID (green line) and sellers ASK (red line). The distance between these two lines is called the price spread. These lines can be used to determine the divergence of supply and demand, but it overloads the chart and usually these lines are turned off in day-to-day trading to better see the crosses of trades.
The “Show market history” button is the second button to the right of the Auto button on the main window of the MoonBot terminal and it allows you to display and hide the crosses of trades on the chart. In other words, all these green and red crosses on the chart are trades – deals to buy or sell the market at a certain price. If we hide these crosses, we will see only the middle price line on the chart, the middle of the spread, but in this case, we will not see sharp upward passes or sharp downward breaks, which are important for correctly setting strategies. Such breakdowns can tell us the best distance to place Buy and Sell orders on this coin. The density of crosses indicates the activity on this coin, the more crosses and the closer they are to each other, the more interesting this coin is for traders and the higher the probability of increased volatility. Red crosses mean that someone sold a lot on the market, green ones mean that someone bought a lot on the market, and if you see almost a vertical series of crosses, this means that a large lot was sold and successive deals were made, first at one price, then at the second, then at the third and so on, gradually buying out all of the limit orders in the order book until the lot was finally sold. Most of the time, such overshoots will end up in a large limit order “wall”, which is a large limit position in the order book. So if you want to sell your position more quickly, place your Sell order just below the big limit wall order in the red order book, and place stops below the big limit wall order in the green order book.
On the main window of the MoonBot terminal there is a button “Draw only last completed buy order”, the icon of which has a number of horizontal lines. This button allows you to display or hide all purchase lines of closed trades or only the last one, as well as purchase lines of still active trades. If you click on the button and display all of the purchase lines, then you can see where the purchases were made, but usually the button is left in position to show only the last purchase line, so as not to load the chart. If you right click on this button, you can select two options: “Clear Fullscreen market entries” or “Clear entries on all markets”.
The “Vol” (Vertical Volumes) button is a graphical display of volumes at the bottom of the chart window.
This button and the settings in it work only for owners of the PRO version of MoonBot with the Moon Scalper module activated.
If you click this button, the chart will show the vertical trading volumes, if you release it, the volumes will be hidden from the chart. These vertical volumes graphically show us in what place of the chart passed what volumes. If green volumes prevailed, then buyers pressured the market, if red volumes prevailed, then sellers did. The change in volumes can give us an additional clue in which direction the price can move at the moment, and we can also identify the accumulation of buyers or sellers unloading zones, which after some time leads to an increase or decrease in price.
If you right click on the “Vol” button on the MoonBot main terminal window, an additional menu opens to configure the display of vertical volumes. “TimeFrame”: sets the volume measurement interval. The volume at each moment of time is considered as a total volume in the given interval The volumes for buying and selling trades as well as the total volume are counted separately. “Height”: Set the height of the volume display area (as a percentage of the chart height). “Kind: Smooth Graph”: with this display option the sales (red) are superimposed on the purchases (green), the total height of the volume bar is equal to the maximum of the sales volume and the purchase volume. “Kind: Stacked Graph: Sales (red) are drawn over purchases (green). The total height of the volume bar is equal to the sum of the sales and the purchases. “Measure Tool: The ruler allows you to measure buy and sell volumes at any interval on the chart. If you check the box, an additional measurement window will appear in the upper right corner of the chart measuring bv and sv. By moving your mouse cursor over the desired section of the chart, you will see the volumes in that section. “Time sec: The size of the area to be measured (e.g. if you select 30 sec, volumes in the area plus or minus 15 sec. from the central position of the cursor will be measured) “Opacity”: The transparency of the volume display is set.
The “HVol” (Horizontal Volumes or Market Profile) button enables or disables the display of horizontal trading volumes to the left of the chart in the main window of the MoonBot terminal. These horizontal volumes help us understand the price boundaries of the selected time frame and the price levels at which the maximum trading volumes (trading peaks) have occurred. These trading peaks also help us construct support and resistance lines that price can approach, push back or break through and go higher. Right-clicking on the “HVol” button will open a menu with options for this functionality.
Right-clicking on the “HVol” button will open an additional menu for configuring the horizontal volume display.
“PriceFrame”: set the price step: if 0%, the bot will measure volumes for buying and selling at every price value (for example at 1000, 1001, 1002 etc.) if 1%, it will measure volumes in the 1% price range (for example near the price of 1000 the bot will show volumes at prices from 995 to 1005).
“TimeFrame”: the measurement time, the maximum value is 48 hours. If you choose TimeFrame up to 24h, then volumes are calculated as trades, if more than 24h – as candlesticks.
“Width”: the width of the histogram (in percent of the chart’s total width).
“Opacity”: the transparency of volumes.
The “Pencil” button – is a chart drawing functionality that is available to users of the PRO version of the MoonBot terminal with the Moon Scalper module activated.
Drawing tools allow the trader to make arbitrary entries on the chart, establish support and resistance lines, set Fibonacci levels and determine the percentage of volatility.
If the button is pressed, it is possible to draw and all drawn lines will be visible, if it is released, drawing lines from the chart will be hidden.
If you click on “Pencil” with the right mouse button, an additional menu with buttons and settings will open.
In this menu you must select and click on one of the items you plan to use.
To start drawing, it is necessary to hold Ctrl and by pressing the left mouse button draw the necessary element.
To remove an element, press Ctrl+Z or click on the element and select “Remove” in the menu.
If you want to change the position of the element, hold Ctrl, point the cursor to the editable part of the element (line, edge point, etc.) and you can edit and move it.
– Pen (freehand drawing, you can draw arbitrary lines).
– Infinite horizontal line.
– Arbitrary sloping line (trend lines).
– Triangle.
– Fibonacci levels (level 0.618 is custom, you can drag this line holding Ctrl and LKM)
– Rectangle (a line with the price or, if it is stretched, a rectangular area with the percentage of growth or decline in price)
Line type, thickness, colour and transparency can be set up additionally in each drawing element.
The Remove All button removes all drawing elements on a chart that is open to the full screen.
In MoonBot on some shapes (lines, triangle, Fibo) you can enable a notification when the price crosses a shape. To do this, draw a shape, right click on its node point (if it is a line, then anywhere on the line; if it is a triangle, then on one of its vertices).
A drop-down menu will appear, check the “Alert” option.
The pattern will change colour and the bot will watch the price in the given area.
When the price crosses the pattern, the bot will beep and the button of the market on which the alert was triggered will appear in the upper panel.
The list of all alerts can be viewed by pressing the “Alerts” button on the drawing panel or by selecting the “Alerts” main menu option. This will open a window with a list of alerts and settings.
You can selectively remove an Alert or a drawing item by right-clicking on the item and selecting Remove from the menu.
The MoonBot terminal does not explicitly set the alert colour because this colour is inverted relative to the base colour of the drawing element without alert. For example, if you assign a gray base colour to the drawing element and then set alert on it, the colour of the drawing element will become black and it will blend in with the background of the graphic in the dark design theme. In this case, select such a base colour, the inversion of which will also be clearly visible on the background of the graphic. For example, you can set the base colour for a horizontal line to green, then the colour of this line will be yellow and both colours will be well visible against the dark background of the chart.
In the “Pencil” button menu, there is a “Pen” button which has the additional functionality of “Draw Price Line”, this option is only available to users who are connected to our bonus program. We recommend when using this mode to temporarily put the bot into “Emulation mode” using Menu – Emulation mode.
Then select the “Pencil” button in the “Pen” button and check the “Emulator” box.
To make drawing faster, it is necessary to expand the graph as much as possible, to do this, place the cursor on the graph and scroll the mouse wheel away from yourself.
For more comfortable drawing, press the “Auto Shift Chart” button (blue arrow) and move the chart to the left with the mouse.
Next, press CTRL and holding it, draw the necessary trajectory to the right of the price BEFORE the current trades. As soon as the chart line comes to the beginning of the drawn line, the “crosses” will run along this line, allowing you to emulate the desired price pattern and check the triggering of buy, put sell, activation of triggers, activation of trailing stops, etc.
To draw, use coins with “dense and saturated” trades, for example on a BTC coin, then the line of the drawn price will be more adequate and “nice”.
If you need to emulate a shootout, you can put a point or short line below the price and then the price will fall sharply to that point or line.
The emulated price trajectory can be reset using “Menu” – “Reset charts” (for those who have the “Chart Sub Module” plugged in).
If you do not have the chart loading module connected, I recommend experimenting with the price line drawing on a separate bot, so that the price deltas do not affect the strategies in real trading.
To ensure that we have information in front of us about orders and current events that occur in the MoonBot terminal and are then written to logs, it is useful to leave the order and log windows open in the bot.
You can show or hide them on the Settings – User Interface tab by checking or unchecking the boxes next to the labels:
– Show LOG window.
– Show orders window.
The order window allows you to quickly see which Buy, Sell and Pending orders are placed on the chart in the MoonBot terminal. If there are no orders placed in the chart, the window with will be empty.
In the orders window you can see your orders and each order has information data:
Order type: SELL (sell), BUY (buy), BUY+ (pending order).
Order number.
If the index is i, the order is an iceberg.
If the index is E, it is an emulative order.
Amount of coins purchased (number of coins purchased / maximum number of coins for the order)
Stop Loss (turn ON or turn OFF).
Trailing Stop (turn ON or OFF).
Vstop Stop by volume in the order book (turn ON or OFF).
Buy price and Sell price. For a Buy order there will be only one value “the price at which to buy the coin”. For a Sell order, there are two values with a slash: the first is Buy (the buy price of the coin) and the second is Sell (the sell price of the coin).
The current price of the coin at which the order was placed.
For Sell order: the current profit (marked in green with plus sign) or loss (marked in red with minus sign) in the base currency and on the right the value of profit or loss as a percentage of the buy price, also marked with plus or minus in green or red.
Filling of an order.
Order type: active (single), active M (multi-order), pending order.
A cross is needed to cancel the order. If you press it, the bot will ask you to confirm the operation before cancelling the order. This is to avoid accidental cancellation of an order which was not intended to be cancelled. After this the orders are cancelled and for Buy orders their balance in the base currency is returned, and for Sell orders the purchased coins are returned to the balance which will just lie in the exchange account.
Canceling orders with a cross is not a sale and closing a position, it is only cancelling orders and returning funds or coins to the exchange account.
The MoonBot terminal has several solutions for this task:
1) You can use the order window on the main MoonBot terminal window for this purpose.
2) You can keep the Reports window open and check completed or active trades in it.
3) You can click on the blue coin name in the top right corner of the MoonBot main terminal window and open that coin’s chart.
4) All active trades that have buy or sell orders can be opened in a separate window, using the Charts Monitoring Module mode in separate windows (“monitoring windows”) and monitor the situation in it. This mode works when the MoonBonus module is activated. You can read more about the “Monitoring windows” mode here: https://moon-bot.com/en/charts-in-separate-windows/
If you select “Show All orders” in the menu when you right-click on the order window in the main window of the MoonBot terminal, all orders will be shown.
That is, the orders window will show both the executed orders to buy DONE and the orders placed on the coin charts, but not yet executed sell orders – active and pending orders.
Already executed DONE orders can be viewed in a separate table of closed deals, therefore we do not need extra lines in the window of orders, to remove all executed DONE orders we usually choose the option below.
If you select “Show only active orders” in the menu when you right-click on the order window of the main window of the MoonBot terminal, only active orders that exist on the chart will be shown.
If Buy order is moved into the red window then it will be executed and turn into a Sell order (Sell order) and in the order window Buy order will change into a Sell order.
Thus when this option is used only active orders that have Active status will be displayed.
If you select “Show only active market” in the menu when you right-click on the orders window of the main MoonBot terminal window, only orders that relate to this market will be shown, i.e. if you enable this option and open a coin chart, you will only see orders on this coin in the window. If you close the chart of this coin and go to the general coin list then the orders window will again show all orders on all coins.
If you choose “Hide Emulator Orders” in the menu when you right click on the order window of the MoonBot main window, all orders set in emulator mode will be hidden from this window. This means that the emulator mode will work and the emulator orders can be placed on the chart, but they will not appear in the orders window.
If you select “Sort” from the menu when you right click on the order window in the main window of the MoonBot terminal, several order sorting principles will be available in the window.
1) SELL first: already executed Sell orders will be shown at the very top of this list, and all Buy orders will be shown lower in the list. Usually this setting is chosen in order to follow Sell orders first.
2) BUY first: Buy orders will be shown at the very top of the list, while Sell orders already executed are lower in the list.
3) Creation order: this is the sorting according to the order placing order on the chart. I.e. if you place orders one by one, then in the same order they will be displayed in the orders window when this setting is chosen.
4) Newver first: this setting will show the newest orders at the top.
5) Older first: with this setting the oldest orders set later will be at the top.
6) By Market: sort orders by coin name.
Selecting “Cancel all pendings” in the menu by right-clicking on the order window of the MoonBot main terminal window will cancel all pending orders (Pendig), but unexecuted Buy orders will remain on the charts and will not be cancelled.
If you click “Cancel ALL BUYs” in the menu when you right click in the order window of the main window of the MoonBot terminal all orders on all coins will be cancelled, both Buy orders and Pending orders.
If “Panic Sell ALL” is selected in the menu, right-clicking on the order window of the MoonBot main window will trigger an urgent market sale of all Sell orders.
Yes, this sometimes happens when the user tries to sell a position by pressing the “Panic Sell” button or when the Panic Sell mode is triggered when the stop loss is triggered and not all Sell orders are closed quickly. This could be due to incorrect setting of the Panic Sell parameters or a residual small order – smaller than the minimum lot on the coin.
In this case you will see on the chart an unsold Sell order and a blue rectangular area where the bot tried to sell the Sell order.
In this case you should press the “Panic Sell” button, cancel the sale of the order, the process will be interrupted and the blue area will disappear.
Then you should either buy some more coins with a small order below and combine them into a common order to make it big enough to sell, or leave it unsold.
You can also wait for a while until the price reaches its level and closes it in time.
You can also cancel this order and leave it as a shallow balance on the exchange and later convert it into BNB for the exchange’s trading commission.
Yes, you can manually activate or deactivate Stop-Loss. To do this, go to the order window below the chart window and select the desired order and click on “SL: OFF”, after which the “SL: ON” message will light up and Stop-Loss from this order will appear on the chart. If you need to disable Stop-Loss, do the opposite.
Yes, you can enable or disable trailing stop-loss manually. You can do this by selecting the desired order in the order window below the chart window and then clicking on the “TS: OFF” line, after which the “TS: ON” line will light up, activating the trailing mode. If you want to turn off trailing, you can do the same thing in reverse.
Yes, hotkeys can be set in the Settings-HotKeys tab. In this section you can select options for setting fixed buy and sell orders, cancel orders, quick sell orders by Panic Sell, merge and split orders, switch the drawing mode on the chart, update the Order Book, set new orders to long and short positions, create screenshots of the chart image or the entire bot, update the chart, move buy or sell orders in increments of 1%, hide the balance, show the service window if it is outside the main bot window or outside the monitor, etc.
To do this in the MoonBot terminal, go to the Settings – Hotkeys tab and set the hotkey in the “New Long” field and use it for this operation.
To do this, in the MoonBot terminal, go to the Settings – Hotkeys tab and set the hotkey to “New Short” and then use it for this operation.
To do this, in the MoonBot terminal, go to the Settings – Hotkeys tab and set the hotkey in the “Cancel Buy” field, and then use it for this operation.
Yes, you can left-click on a Sell order, hold it, move the Sell order up or down and then release it. The Sell order will be moved to the selected position. If you move the Sell order to the green order book this way, but the coin will be sold at the market. Alternatively, you can configure hotkeys in the Settings – Hotkeys tab for the quick move of Sell orders, use special combinations in the Settings – User Interface – “Mouse clicks settings for orders management” and right click an additional menu in the M (Use Multi orders) button where you can also configure combinations of manual Sell order moves.
Yes you can left click on Buy order and keeping it pressed move Buy order higher or lower and then release it. The Buy order will be moved to the selected position. If you move the Buy order to the red order book in this way then the coin will be bought on the market. Besides that you can set up hotkeys in Settings – Hotkeys, use special combinations in Settings – User Interface – “Mouse clicks settings for orders management” or right click an additional menu in the M (multiorder) button where you can also set up combinations for manual moving of Buy orders.
MoonBot has two options for specifying the level of a sell order: Menu – Sell Price – Fixed or Float.
Float allows you to set the level of the sell order with a slider as a percentage of the buy line, while Float allows you to set the level of the sell order with six buttons. For example, you can set 1%, 3%, 5%, 10%, 30%, 100% and quickly switch between them by clicking on these buttons with your mouse.
This happens if MoonBot is not working (the computer is turned off or in sleep mode) or the connection with the exchange is lost for some time due to lags of the exchange itself or loss of connection with the Internet. To restore the missing section in the chart, use the hotkey that can be set in the Settings – Hotkeys – Reload Chart tab, you can also select Menu – Reload chart or enable the checkbox “Charts from MoonServer” in the Settings – User Interface. In order to be able to retrieve the chart over a longer period of time, it is better to activate the optional “Load Charts” module on Settings – Unlock – Moon Credits tab .
The log window below the chart window in the main window of the MoonBot terminal displays all information about the bot’s actions: all detections and triggering strategies with their names, placing, moving and merging orders, number of coins purchased and balance spent, reasons for activating stops and trailing, all sorts of errors in the bot and API, and other service information.
The log is big and very detailed, each line starts with a time of recording, and you can always find out what was happening in MoonBot and what was the reason for that particular event.
Frequently, our technical support team is asked, why the bot sold here, why a stop loss did not trigger, why I have not placed orders, etc., then we always ask the data from this log and quickly resolve all issues. If the user himself has learned to read the logs, he will quickly understand the reason and fix it on his own.
You can open a small window on the main chart to quickly see the last activities of the bot, but if you need to see more information for a certain period of time, you need to open the log file for the desired day in the folder logs with the extension log, the one that is written without the prefix ADD. Open it in notepad, find the interval of time you are interested in and read all the information about the actions of the bot. For example, what strategy worked. When an order is placed, if it is an emulator or a real order, when it was executed or cancelled. Volumes, prices, stop loss enabled, trailing stop disabled. MoonBot stopped, running, API check and other detailed information.
Yes, if you want to shrink the order and log windows, left click on their top border and drag down. The windows can be reduced to 1 line. If you need to hide these windows altogether, uncheck the “Show LOG window” and “Show orders window” checkboxes on the Settings – User Interface tab.
If you switch from the spot to the futures interface of the MoonBot terminal, you will see that the futures interface has some differences from the spot interface, namely a different scale on the buttons, new functionality with a circle with which you can select leverage for futures trading, select the type of margin, select the hedging mode, select the trading direction (short only, long only, both directions). Also, some other technical information on the chart, and the possibility of displaying different price lines and position liquidation lines. The functionality of “MarketsTable” has also been slightly changed, and there is a button “Manage Leverage” at the bottom of it. In the menu of this button there are settings for changing the leverage, measuring the type of margin (Isolated or Cross), setting the maximum leverage, functionality for automatic adjustment of leverage depending on the maximum position.
The leverage on a particular coin in the MoonBot futures terminal can be changed using the interface on the main window (in the form of a circle). In addition, the leverage on coins can be changed through the “MarketsTable”. To do this, click on the Watch Markets button and in the “MarketsTable” that opens at the bottom, set the value of the desired leverage and click on the Set Leverage to button.
To do this, click the “Show Markets” button on the main screen of the MoonBot terminal and open the “Markets Table” window. At the bottom of this table, click the “Manage Leverage” button and in the additional setting that opens, in the field next to the “Set Leverage to” button, enter the number 10 and then click the “Set Leverage to” button. The MoonBot terminal will then send a request to the exchange to set the leverage to x10. You can control the “current leverage / maximum leverage” value in the same “Markets Table” in the “Leverage” column. The process of changing the leverage will be visible both in the log window and in the “Markets Table” itself.
In the futures interface of the MoonBot terminal’s main window, there is a functionality that was absent in spot trading, this is the “futures circle” to change the leverage on a coin. To change the leverage on a coin, you must open it full screen and click on the value of the leverage in the circle. This will bring up a menu with a slider that allows you to change the leverage, and there is also a drop-down menu with the basic leverage (a multiple of 5). Set the leverage you want and press Apply.
If x1 in the centre of the circle lights up it means that the first leverage is set on the coin, if x20 for instance lights up it means that the 20th leverage is set.
Note that if there is no coin chart open or multiple charts open, x1 will always be lit in the circle, and you cannot change the leverage, because MoonBot will not understand which coin you want to change the leverage on.
In the futures interface of the MoonBot main terminal window, click on the leverage value in the futures circle and at the top of the menu that opens you will see an entry of the form: “x20/50 Cross”. It means that on this coin, the leverage is set to x20 / maximum leverage of x50 and the current margin type is Cross. To change the margin type to Isolated click on the word Cross and the entry will change to “x20/50 Isolated”. To switch back to Cross margin – do the reverse of “x20/50 Isolated” => “x20/50 Cross”.
In the futures interface of the MoonBot main window, click on the leverage value in the futures circle and in the menu that opens, click on “Hedge mode: OFF” which will then switch to “Hedge mode: ON” and MoonBot will now be in hedging mode. To disable hedge mode, do the reverse of “Hedge mode: ON” => “Hedge mode: OFF”.
Hedge mode allows you to hold two opposite positions in the exchange, simultaneously holding both short and long positions.
If hedging mode is deactivated, it is possible to open a position simultaneously in either short or long positions. And it is not an order, but an open position. Note that the hedging mode is for the entire account, not just the current coin.
In the futures interface of the MoonBot main window, the value of the leverage will change according to the value of the maximum position on this coin, which can be taken either by one order or several orders when the Moon Scalper module is activated.
At the same time, in the balance line you can now see two numbers: the first number indicates your real equity balance and the number in brackets indicates your current leverage.
When placing an order, you can select its size using either the slider or the fixed buttons, and its size will correspond to the order size with leverage taken into account. For example, if the fixed button shows $100 and the leverage is x10, it means that we will place a 100$ order, but it will only include 10$ of our own funds and 90$ of the leverage.
So when the order is placed, you will see on the balance line that the equity has been reduced by 10$.
On the MoonBot futures interface, in addition to the green and red crosses, you can see yellow crosses for the elimination of short positions and blue crosses for the elimination of long positions of other traders.
On the MoonBot futures interface, after you buy a coin, an additional red line appears on the chart, which is the liquidation line and when the price crosses this line, the exchange liquidates your position. On a long position, the liquidation line appears in the green stack, and on a short position, the liquidation line appears in the red stack.
The MoonBot Registration ID (your personal bot number) can be viewed in the Settings – Login tab.
In the MoonBot terminal, you can switch between exchanges using the drop-down menu next to “Exchange” on the Settings – Login tab. The following types of connections are currently available:
– Bittrex (spot trading)
– Binance (spot trading)
– Binance Futures (futures trading)
– Huobi (spot trade)
– Binance Quarterly (futures trading on quarterly contracts)
After selecting the exchange you want, you should click the Apply button and MoonBot will reload to the desired exchange.
To connect the Huobi exchange to the MoonBot terminal you need to do the following:
1) Check the activation of the Huobi module in the bot.
2) At the Huobi exchange, create new keys without IP binding and make sure the checkboxes for trading are checked.
3) On the user’s computer:
a) create a new folder C:/MoonBotHuobi and copy the spot MoonBot PRO from Binance exchange there.
b) Run MoonBot in administrator mode.
c) On the Settings-Login tab, change the exchange from Binance to Huobi and click on “Apply”.
d) register new API already for exchange Huobi.
e) check the result of the connection.
If you do not manage to connect to the exchange Huobi, for further advice please contact the Moon Bot Public Telegram group: https://t.me/Moon_Bot_Public
To change the language interface of the MoonBot terminal, go to the Settings – Login tab and click on one of the three checkboxes (Russian, English or Spanish)
To further protect your MoonBot terminal, you can set a password that will be asked each time you run the terminal. To set a password, go to the Settings – Login tab, enter the password in the Password field and repeat it again in the Password confirm field and then click on the Change password button.
In the Settings – Main tab of the MoonBot terminal, there is a “Analize coins on startup” checkbox next to this checkbox and activate it, in which case the MoonBot starts downloading historical data from the exchange at its startup. Loaded the last 1000 trades on each coin, on the basis of these data is drawn a graph of coins for a small interval before the start and on while the bot will run all the trades on all coins will be displayed in the bot to restart. This data is also entered into the MarketsTable and is used to assess risk and evaluate “pumptacular quality” of a coin.
In the MoonBot terminal on the Settings-Main tab there is a slider “Let Panic Sell drop price to [actual buy] ХХ%” and it can vary between -40% and +5%.
This is the percentage level of the buy line to which the bot will be allowed to lower the Sell order when the Panic Sell button is pressed on the main bot window. Usually this slider is usually set in extreme left position at -40%, to give the maximum opportunity to sell the order at strong price decrease. If this slat is set at -1%, for example, and the price fell sharply by -3% and then goes downward, the Sell order will stop at -1% and will not move lower. Thus, you will not be able to sell the order quickly by pressing the Panic Sell button, and will have to waste precious time in order to close it manually, for example, already at -5%.
In the MoonBot terminal on the Settings – Main tab there is a slider “Panic Sell Spread: ХХ%” and it can vary from 0 to +5% – this is the step change of the Sell order every 2 seconds, i.e. how fast the Panic Sell can drop the price. The higher this parameter is, the faster the Sell order will find the green order book and sell the coin. If you set this parameter to 0.5%, for example, after you hit the Panic Sell button, the bot will move the Sell order 0.5% below the current price, if it hits the spread and fails to find any liquidity (buyers in the green order book), after 2 seconds the bot will move the Sell order down again by 0.5% and so on. In this case, it may happen that the price will start to fall sharply lower and lower in those two seconds, and the Sell order will move every 2 seconds for the next 0.5%, but it will not be able to keep up with the falling price. If this happens, the order may move several times before it is already sold, but you will already have a significant amount of losses in the trade. Therefore it is recommended to place a large step for small and medium orders at once, for example 2-3-5%, in order to throw the order deep into the green order book and sell the order at the current market price for the first step of price decrease.
In the MoonBot terminal in the tab Settings – Main, if you don’t put a tick mark near the parameter “Auto Panic Sell If price drops < [actual buy] -ХХ%", then when you buy a coin manually, a stop loss will not be set and a Sell order will open without a stop loss. If you need to trade manually with a stop loss, then you should put a tick mark next to this parameter and set the slider to the desired level, corresponding to the distance from the buy price to the stop. The slider allows you to set stop values from -10% to +5%. If, for example, you set the slide to -2%, the stop will be set to -2% of the purchase price after the coin is purchased. Setting this parameter depends on what kind of stops you usually trade with, some trade with -1% short stops and some purposely set stops higher, depending on the volatility of the coin, so that if the price falls suddenly and bounces up later, you will not be quickly knocked out of the trade. Keep in mind that the stop-loss line is visible only in the bot, and the stop-loss is not exposed at the exchange. The principle of closing a position is as follows, once the price has crossed the stop line in the bot, the bot's internal algorithm switches on the Panic Sell function and initiates an urgent sale of the position at the market price, for which it abruptly lowers a Sell order with the specified stop spread in the green order book and tries to find buyers.
In MoonBot’s Settings – Main tab, the parameter “Take Profit [actual buy] +XX%” is responsible for the floating trailing stop. If unchecked, the trailing line on the chart will appear immediately after you buy at the level you selected. If you want to use Take Profit, you should tick the checkbox and choose the necessary value by the slider, at that the trailing line will appear later and only after the price increases over the percent, chosen by the Take Profit slider.
Working in conjunction with the Take Profit slide is the “Auto Panic Sell can drop price to [actual buy] ХХ%” slide if price has fallen < [Peak] - XX%. This slide is responsible for the line where the trailing line should appear. If the Take Profit checkbox is activated and the Trailing Line is set at +2%, and the Trailing Line appears at Auto Panic Sell if the price fell < [Peak] stands at -1%, the price line will appear at +2% of the Buy Line, but only after the price rises by 3% (Take Profit + Trailing Line by modulo).
If price was rising and then started falling, as soon as it drops -1% from the peak and crosses the trailing line, a trailing stop will be triggered and Panic Sell will be activated.
In the MoonBot terminal on the Settings – Main tab, the “Auto Panic Sell can drop price to [actual buy] -ХХ%” setting defines the maximum level to which a Sell order will be allowed to lower on a Panic Sell. The maximum lower level in this setting is -40%. If you set this parameter, for example, to -10%, then during a Panic Sell, the order will move lower and lower until it finds the green order book, but not lower than -10%. If the price has fallen very quickly and the Sell order has failed to sell, it will stop at -10% and will not go lower. In this case you will only have to wait for the price to go back up to the -10% level and close your order, or you will have to close it by hand.
In MoonBot on the Settings – Main tab, the parameter “Add 0.00% to trailing per each % of price” is used for coins with high volatility, when the size of pullbacks increase proportionally to the rise.
If this slider is set to 0.00%, then the parameter “Auto Panic Sell If price drops < [Peak] -ХХ%" will always be the same as you set it.
If the slider is set in a minus position, the distance from the peak on a rising price will decrease, if it is set in the plus position, the distance from the peak on a rising price will increase. We recommend setting it to 0.00% as a basic setting and then experiment as you master MoonBot according to your trading algorithms. Keep in mind that this parameter in the basic settings also affects trailing in the strategy settings.
The “Panic Sell If BIDs at [buy] -X% drops” slider in the Settings – Main tab of the MoonBot terminal is responsible for setting the Panic Sell by volume in the stack, that is, it is needed for setting the V-Stop parameter, which is set and activated in the Active Order window. To open the Active Order window, you need to right-click on the order and the Active Order window will open, where you can set various parameters for the current order. Using the “Panic Sell If BIDs at [buy] -X% drops” slider you only set the level at which to check the volume drop in the V-Stop parameter.
In the MoonBot terminal on the Settings – Main tab, the parameter “Auto Sell if partial buy > XX% (in the far right position Auto Sell: NEVER)” defines after what percentage of the Buy order has been purchased, a Sell order can be placed:
a) if at its full buyout then set the slider to the extreme right position (Auto Sell: NEVER)
b) If it is a partial buyout, then set the slider to the percentage when you can place a Sell position (Auto Sell if partial buy > XX%)
For example, if you have a $1,000 Buy order and the order is in the green order book at a certain distance from the current price. At the moment the price slips down, your order is only bought for $500, then if you put a slider “Wait for full purchase order” then the buy order will stay in place and wait for the second $500 to be bought out, and if you put a slider of 50%, then the buy order will cancel and a 500% sell order will be placed immediately. I recommend to set this slider to 60-70% if you have medium orders, or to 30-40% if you have large orders. Also, if you have the setting “Auto Sell: NEVER” and the order is bought out, for example, only on 60-70%, you can manually click the Cancel Buy button in the main window of the MoonBot terminal, the rest of not bought out Buy order will be cancelled and what has been bought out will be immediately put up for sale with installation of Sell order.
In MoonBot on the Settings – Main tab, the “Auto Cancel Buy – NEVER / after XX seconds” option is used when you buy a coin with the Buy button or the Enter button. If you place an order by clicking on the betting slider, this setting will not work. And it is necessary for setting auto cancel order, when you set Buy order, and price suddenly went up and did not buy it out, then bot can automatically cancel this order in interval in seconds, according to this setting. If you set the slider to NEVER, the order will not be cancelled by the bot, and it can only be cancelled manually.
In the MoonBot terminal on the Settings – Main tab, the parameter “Auto Cancel Buy – NEVER / After XX Seconds” works as follows:
a) checked: If the first order in the Buy order grid is executed and a Sell order is placed, the remaining Buy orders in the grid will be automatically cancelled.
b) unchecked: If the first order in the Buy order grid is executed and a Sell order is placed, the remaining Buy orders in that grid will not be cancelled.
In the MoonBot terminal, on the Settings – Main tab of the “Fit sell order in best place in the order book” parameter, if you check the box, you will allow the bot to adjust the placed Sell order slightly, within 20% of the Sell level, by doing so.
For example, after a buy without this check mark Sell orders will be placed strictly at +1%, according to the Sell order setting. If you check this option, the bot will check if there is any large order (wall) in the range of +1%, just above +0.2% (+20% of 1%) or just below -0.2% (+20% of 1%), and then the MoonBot will try to put an order just below this order, so as to sell your Sell order immediately if the price goes up or down again. That is, with this checkbox set Sell order at 1%, it can be set at different percentages ranging from: +0.80% to +1.20%, namely at that level where it will find the wall and set the Sell order just below it, because it is faster to sell the order below the wall. This is why this parameter is usually left checked for a better probability of selling the Sell order.
In the MoonBot terminal, on the Settings – Main tab under “Good pump conditions”, there is a group of conditions when the bot applies a second, higher selling price, which is indicated on the main screen. To apply the second price, all of the conditions marked with ticks must be met.
1) If price changed < ХХ%: The deviation of the coin's price over the last hour is checked. A large deviation may occur if admins were buying up the coin themselves before the pamp was announced, or if they are reposting from another telegram channel where the pamp started earlier.
2) AND If pump Q > N: Coin quality condition is checked, bot determines it by itself. For coins with a quality higher than the given one, the bot will put a higher selling price.
3) AND If actual buy < ХХ%: It is checked that the real purchase price differs from the pre-pump price by less than X%. Buy may occur at a lower price than you set in case there were enough sell orders with a lower price in the stack. This usually happens if you have chosen a good coin for the pumpen and the admins didn't buy much in advance.
In this section, it is recommended to uncheck all the boxes, as these parameters were relevant in the early version of the MoonBot terminal, but now you can adjust everything more flexibly in the strategies themselves and their filters. It often happens that users leave the checkboxes checked and then the bot stops, due to the fact that the conditions for these settings do not pass.
In the MoonBot terminal, on the Settings – Main tab under “Risk limit conditions”, there is an additional group of conditions:
1) Dont buy If price changed > XX%: The bot will not buy if the deviation of the price in the last hour is greater than X%.
2) Dont buy If pump Q < N: The bot checks the quality of the coin. Coins with a quality lower than this will not be bought by the bot.
3) Dont buy If Daily Vol. < N BTC: Do not buy if total coin trade volume is less than N BTC in 24 hours.
4) Dont buy If 3h Vol. > N BTC: Do not buy if trade volume is greater than X BTC in 3 hours.
5) Dont buy already pumped: The bot will not buy if there has been a signal to pamp this coin since the Bot was launched in the current session. Useful if you are using multiple signal sources, which may duplicate each other.
It is also recommended to uncheck this section, as these settings were relevant in earlier versions of the MoonBot terminal, and now setting them may prohibit placing new orders in the bot if conditions do not meet these settings. And the settings for volatility, deltas and volumes are better configured in the strategies themselves.
In MoonBot on the Settings – Main tab of the “Black List” parameter, if checked, all coins that are written with a comma without a space in the field below will be added to the global blacklist and all strategies will not be allowed to trigger on these coins, that is, there will be no detects and therefore no orders will be placed.
In MoonBot on the Settings – Main tab of the “Exclude from delta” parameter, if checked, the blacklisted coins will be excluded from the delta calculation of the Market, which is shown at the top of the main bot window.
In the MoonBot terminal, the Settings – Main tab under “Dont buy newly added coins ХХ minutes / hours” defines the time after which you are allowed to buy coins after listing on an exchange.
In the first minutes and sometimes hours after listing, these new coins have abnormal or increased volatility on the exchange and if you do not know how to trade on the listings yet or you have strategies set up without taking abnormal volatility into account, you can make a loss without proper experience. It is therefore recommended for beginners to set this slide to the far right position for 37 hours, so as not to buy new coins during this time. After you learn how to trade listings and create strategies for them, you can then move this bar to the far left, so that strategies can place orders as soon as a coin appears in the bot. This slider only affects strategies for auto-trading, if you want to trade manually on listings, then it will allow you to place manual orders even if it is set for 37 hours.
Note that if you reload the bot within those 37 hours, the bot will “forget” this setting and allow auto strategies to place orders even if less time has passed since listing, so be careful and keep this feature in mind.
In the MoonBot terminal on the Settings – Main tab in the parameter “Dont cancel small BUYs” you can set:
a) checked: if you have a coin redeemed by a small amount, less than the minimum order, the Buy order will not be cancelled but will wait until it is redeemed.
b) unchecked: If you have a small amount of coins bought back, less than the minimum order, the Buy order will be canceled, the Sell order will not be placed on the chart and the amount of the small amount of coins will remain on your exchange balance. If there will be a lot of these small amounts of coins, they will gradually decrease your trading balance and in addition to this, they can be combined with the coins bought at another time and at another price, and when the orders are combined, they may show an incorrect buy price or an abnormal sell price. To prevent these small balances from remaining on your balance, it is recommended that you regularly log into your exchange account and convert them into BNB coins to use the trading commission.
In MoonBot on the Settings – Main tab, the “Cancel small SELLs” option is used for the following:
A situation may arise that a small amount of coins will be bought or a balance will remain from the sale of a larger order, but this balance will be slightly less than the minimum order, and if the price goes down sharply, this small SELL order will no longer be possible to sell, as the amount in the order is less than the minimum order when moving down, including the commission. In this case, you can either leave such order on the chart, so that it would wait for the price to rise and sell itself, or the bot may cancel it, and this small amount of coins will get to your balance on the exchange, and will accumulate there until the moment the small balances convert to BNB coins. So if you want to leave such small orders on the chart, the checkbox should be unchecked, if you want such orders to be automatically removed by MoonBot from sale, the checkbox should be checked. For beginners, it is advisable to uncheck the box so the MoonBot will not cancel small Sell orders and they can control their own Sell orders and not wonder why they are canceled and where they disappear to.
The MoonBot terminal has the inclusion of special modes for iceberg orders. They are enabled on the Settings – Advanced – Engine settings tab:
a) Iceberg Buys: a special iceberg mode, on activation of which your order to buy will not be fully visible in the Order Book, but only 10%, with 10% buyout an order to buy the next 10% will be automatically displayed, this is done not to scare the exchange participants with large “walls” in the Order Book.
b) Iceberg Sells: A special iceberg mode, when you activate this mode your sell order will not be completely visible in the market, but only 10% of it, and when you buy 10%, an order to sell the next 10% will be automatically displayed, this is done in order not to scare the participants of the exchange with big walls in the Order Book.
Besides, to quickly enable or disable the mode of iceberg orders, on the right side of the main window of the MoonBot terminal there are two buttons “Buy” and “Sell” with dice icons.
In MoonBot on the Settings – Advanced – Engine settings tab of the engine there is a parameter “Use Iceberg only If Price Step < XX%". Let us explain how it works by an example: There are so-called square coins with big spread, which is a step of price, i.e., for example, a HOT coin has current price ASK 0.000000017 and price BID 0.000000016, which means that its price step is about 6% and you can not buy at 0.000000016 but sell it at 0.000000165 with 3% profit, you have to put sell order at 0.000000017 and wait your turn. If you use an Iceberg order, when you get to your turn, 10% will buy from you, and then, while your 10% of the order is being put again, you will have time to get to the back of the queue and you will have to wait for another 10% buyout for a few days. You can therefore specify a price step at which the order will be placed in the normal way and will be redeemed immediately.
In the MoonBot terminal on the Settings – Advanced – Engine settings tab you can find the option “Use BookTicker”. If it is disabled, the BID\ASK is displayed in real time on the chart. If enabled, these prices are used in the MoonShot at selected rearrangement of orders from BID or ASK prices.
Warning! Enabling this option may cause excessive CPU load on weak 1-2 core VDS!
In the MoonBot terminal, on the Settings – Advanced – Engine settings tab there is the “Auto correct order’s price” option which is an option of auto-correction of order prices when you try to set orders too high or too low.
In the MoonBot terminal, on the Settings – Advanced – Engine settings tab, there is the “Don’t check position limits” option (only available in the MoonBot futures terminal). It is not recommended to enable it. When checked, it allows you to bypass the maximum limit for all orders on a coin, for example, with a limit of 5000$ on a coin, you can put an order in a long position for 5000$ and simultaneously in a short position for 5000$.
In the MoonBot terminal, on the Settings – Advanced – Engine settings tab there is a parameter “Add small random % to sell price”. When checked, the MoonBot adds a small, random percentage to SellPrice in the strategy settings on the Sell order tab.
The MoonBot has the “Liquidation Control” parameter (only available in the MoonBot futures terminal) on the Settings – Advanced – Engine settings tab. This is an experimental parameter. It closes all orders and positions in case of liquidation.
In the MoonBot terminal on the Settings – Advanced – Engine settings tab there is an option “Ignore Replacing Bug” – to ignore or not the bug of pending orders (status 499, 12030, 10054, etc.). If you enable tracking with autosell, then enable Ignore Replacing Bug checkbox in all bots. If you do not have autosell, do not check the checkbox anywhere. You can read more about the hover tracking feature on our website: https://moon-bot.com/en/control-hanged-position/
In the MoonBot terminal, on the Settings – Advanced – Engine settings tab is the “Quantitative Rules” parameter. This parameter has been introduced into the MoonBot terminal as an additional protection when trading on the futures market and allows you to limit the placing of orders that can lead to a ban on Binance based on their new “Quantitative Rules”.
Additionally, here are recommendations for setting up bots on Binance futures:
1) We strongly recommend using the same white list (WL) on all bots running on the same account (sub-accounts are counted separately)
2) If your WL has no more than 9 coins, then the new rules of Binance will not affect you, and further you can not read
3) If you have more than 9 coins in your WL, we strongly advise you not to uncheck the protection from new Binance Quantitative Rules on the Settings – Advanced – Engine settings tab (it is checked by default).
Command to enable/disable via Telegram: SetQRules ON/OFF.
a) When working with WL up to 15-20 coins, the protection is unlikely to work, or will work, but very rarely.
b) If there are more than 20 coins in WL, or no WL at all, the more orders you have per minute (including rearrangements of munches, setting and cancelling grids of drops and other strategies) the more often the check will be triggered.
c) The protection works on the principle of putting a coin where there have been too many orders into an black list for 10 minutes. Thus, the work of protection is fully automated and does not allow the MoonBot terminal to place orders above the limit on a particular coin, so as not to get a ban from the exchange.
In the log when the protection triggers, you can see the following entries:
FilterCheck: market no longer meets the conditions. According to new Futures Trading Quantitative Rules you can place only 2 orders per 46 markets. You placed 4 orders. Market BTC will be blackListed for 10 minutes.
In the MoonBot terminal, on the Settings – Advanced – Engine settings tab there is the “Auto Leverage” parameter. If checked, in case the position limit is exceeded, the auto leverage will be lowered sequentially in the following steps: x125-x100-x75-x50-x25-x20-x10-x8-x5.
In the MoonBot terminal, on the Settings – Advanced – Engine settings tab, there is the “Weighted mAvg” parameter. If checked, the price of the marketplace is averaged with a weight equal to the daily volume. In other words, the lower the daily volume on a coin, the less it affects the average. The calculation can be compared to capitalisation: it is the amount (price * volume)
In the MoonBot terminal, on the Settings – Advanced – Engine settings tab, there is a slider called “Sell x2 Level for markets analysis: ХХ%”. This slider can be used to set the calculation of the Order Book volume to a given percentage and this setting determines the values of columns x2,x3 in the “MarketsTable”.
In the MoonBot terminal, on the Settings – Advanced – Engine settings tab, you will find the “Binance connection method” setting. If you have strong latency with the exchange, it is recommended to try other connection methods, perhaps also try other ip for connection.
In MoonBot, on the Settings – Advanced – Engine settings tab, you will find the “Auto-Buy BNB” setting. On the Binance exchange, you pay a commission on the size of your order for a buy+sell transaction. If you have BNB tokens in your account, you will pay the commission with them and the commission will be only 0.15% of your order. To do that, you must activate BNB tokens payment in “User Center” in your Binance account. The bot implements auto-purchase of BNB tokens in case your balance remains below the specified number. If you do not use BNB tokens to pay commission, payment will be made in the current coin and the balance of this coin will remain in your account after the transaction is closed. Warning: You must enter at least the minimum lot for BNB in equivalent of base currency in the Buy BNB field and if you have large orders, then set values sufficient for daily trading.
The option to auto-buy BNB on the MoonBot futures terminal is only available to members of our bonus program, you can read more about this by clicking on the “MoonBonus” button at the top of the MoonBot main terminal window.
Small balances from coins may remain and accumulate on the exchange for several reasons, the first is that you trade without having a BNB balance, from which the trading commission is deducted and commission deducted from the lots of coins traded, and not even balances as coin dust settles unsold on the balance of your account. Secondly, an order is cancelled if it is not redeemed in full or an order with small balances is cancelled. In this case, see the settings on the Settings – Main tab: “Dont cancel small BUYs” and “Cancel small SELLs”.
This is information about the balance of BNB coins that are intended to pay commission when trading. Trading using BNB coins for commission has several advantages compared to trading without them. First of all, exchange gives you 25% discount on trading commission, and for example, for VIP0 level instead of 0.1% commission, exchange will charge you 0.075% commission. Secondly, you will get another 20% commission rebate on spot trades, if you trade with BNB and are connected to our MoonBonus reps. Thirdly, using BNB will allow you to avoid the accumulation of small amounts of coins on your balance, the so-called “coin dust”, which may lead to inadequate buy point or sell point displays, as these small coins bought at different times and prices, when combined with the current order, may give such artifacts. Thus, trading using BNB is correct and profitable.
Initially you will have 0 BNB on your balance. You can buy BNBs manually by pairing them with a BNB to buy a coin and then cancel the Sell order, but why do that when the developers have already taken care of everything and created auto-buy BNBs, which simplifies and automates the process. You can set up auto-buy BNB in the MoonBot terminal in the Settings – Special – Engine settings tab. To do that, go to this tab and set the “Auto buy BNB” checkbox and set auto-purchase thresholds below: in the left field (Min. BNB level), set the value of the minimum threshold below which the bot will auto-buy BNB, and in the right field (Buy BNB), set the number of BNB coins to be added. For example, you can put 0.1 in the left field and 0.2 in the left field. Then if the BNB level for the commission falls below 0.1 BNB, the bot will buy another 0.2 BNB. Please note that these thresholds need to be increased if you trade frequently and with large orders, as the commission will be charged by the exchange more and more often.
The MoonBot terminal has a “Log level (0 – less, 5 – more): N” tab on the Settings – Advanced – System tab that lets you choose how much detail to log at run time. The most comprehensive information will be logged at log level 5, the shortest data will be logged at log level 0. Be aware that setting logging level to maximum can quickly fill the disk space of your computer, so be careful and clean out the logs folder or use the “Delete old logs since XX days” slider. If 0, don’t keep report charts too” in the same section.
In the MoonBot terminal on the Settings-Special-System tab there is a “Log level (0 – less, 5 – more): N” slider, set it to 1 so that the most necessary files are written to the log file, and you can also set the “Delete old logs since 2 days” slider on the same tab. If 0, don’t keep report charts also” to position 1-3. If you set the slider to 0, you will not keep report charts. This will allow the MoonBot terminal logs to be cleared automatically in a timely manner.
In the MoonBot terminal on the Settings – Advanced – System tab there is a slider “Auto close charts after XX minutes of inactivity”, set it to “5 minutes”. The more charts open, the greater the load on the API.
In the MoonBot terminal, on the Settings – Advanced – System tab there is a slider “Charts in reports XX mins after close”, set it to “10 minutes”. Immediately after closing a trade, you cannot view the chart until the specified time XX has passed, i.e. the chart recording is over.

In the MoonBot terminal, the Settings – Advanced – System tab, the “Turn Off Protection” setting is used to turn on or off the anti-ban protection. Please do not check this box!
In the MoonBot terminal, on the Settings – Advanced – System tab, the “Active” setting is responsible for activating the tracking of orders placed on this account by those bots that have the “Control orders of this bot” check box selected. In other words, only one bot must have this check mark. The Spot bot follows the orders of other bots, another bot is needed to follow the futures orders, and a separate bot is needed for quarterly orders. Below you can find necessary parameters to check and if any condition is met bot will cancel this order.
Price distance, %: If the price is close to the buy order closer than the specified percentage, the order will be canceled. If 0, the condition will not be checked.
Time, seconds: If the buy order has been idle (not moving) for longer than the specified time it will be canceled. If 0, the condition is not checked.

Yes, you can do this by going to the tab Settings – User Interface in the MoonBot terminal and checking the “Draw pending orders buy price” setting, after which you will visually see with an additional dotted line where the real order will be placed when the pending order triggers.
In MoonBot on the tab Settings – User Interface there is a setting “Pending orders spread”, which can be used to set the real order after the triggering of the pending order. There are two fields, if 0% is specified in them, the live order will be placed at the same position where the pending order was placed, if the value is positive, the live order will be set above the pending order, and if the value is negative, it will be set below. How much higher or lower the real order is placed depends on the values in the fields. The general formula for distance: if the price is XX%, the real order should be placed at the price level “XX%+Spread%+hDelta*YY%”.
In the MoonBot terminal on the Settings – User Interface tab there is an option “Only 1 chart in Full Screen”, when checked, if your working chart is open in Full Screen mode, when new signals are detected, MoonBot will not open them over your chart.

There are several ways to cancel Buy orders in the MoonBot terminal:
1) You can cancel orders one at a time via the Order Menu. To do this, right-click on the order and select Cancel from the menu; in this case only one order will cancel. This is not very convenient and time consuming.
2) You can click Cancel buy on the right control panel of the main window of the MoonBot terminal, then all orders on this coin will cancel, including Pending orders.
3) You can press and hold Tab button on your keyboard and drag your mouse cursor over orders to cancel, in this case only Buy orders will be cancelled, but Pending Pending orders will remain on the chart.
4) You can set “Cancel Buy” hotkey combination on the Hotkeys tab. Pressing this combination will cancel all orders, including Pending orders on a coin open full screen.
5) You can right click in the order window and choose Cancel ALL Buy from the menu.
6) You may in the order window click on the cross on the left and confirm the cancellation of the order.
7) If the orders were placed according to the strategy, then their cancellation will depend on some parameters of the strategy, such as AutoCancelBuy parameter, in which the value in seconds is written, after which the Buy order will be cancelled.
In the MoonBot terminal, marks appear on some coins on the spot charts in the upper left-hand corner:
F-$ (Futures-Usdt, you will most often see this mark)
F-B (Futures-Busd, you will see this mark less often e.g. on a LUNA coin), which means that this coin is also traded on the futures market on USDT and BUSD.
Why is this important for us to know?
Generally, coins that are also traded on futures markets have larger volumes and are more predictable, because they are harder to manipulate on futures markets, and on the spot market, the price is equalized by exchange arbitrage trading bots and skew movements occur less often than on coins that are not traded on futures.
Also, in some strategies, traders whitelist and trade only coins that are on both the spot and futures markets.
In the MoonBot futures terminal, on the Settings – User Interface tab, there is a “Hide PNL” setting, if checked, the PNL value will be hidden on the chart. In your case, uncheck this box and the PNL value will reappear.
You need to make the main window of the MoonBot futures terminal wider and this value will appear automatically. The smaller the window with the terminal, the less values are shown on the chart – this was done on purpose to avoid cluttering the chart with information when it is small.
This is the MoonBot terminal’s local time scale, on which the minutes are displayed. The exact time in HH:MM:SS (23:30:15) format is indicated on the vertical cursor in the area of this time scale. If you are looking at more than 24 hours, the month and date (02:26 17:30:15) will also be shown ahead of this data.
You have autopurchase BNB set up for the trade commission and MoonBot has autopurchased BNB on your available balance.
Go to Settings – dvanced – Engine settings. Uncheck “Auto buy BNB” option. If you want autopurchase function, set “Min. BNB level” = 0.10 and “Buy BNB” = 0.10, i.e. if the number of BNB decreases less than 0.10 MoonBot will automatically buy only 0.10 BNB more each time.
To use the new type of API keys (in RSA format) in the MoonBot terminal, proceed as follows
1) On the Settings – Login tab, click on RSA and use the “Create Keys” button to generate a public key
2) Copy it to the buffer using “Copy Pub Key for Binance” button.
3) On Binance exchange: create a new API in RSA format and paste the public key from the buffer. The lines are: —–BEGIN PUBLIC KEY—– and —–END PUBLIC KEY—– can be left blank. Then click on the Next button. Set all necessary permissions for trading and copy the API key (RSA) to the buffer. Save API settings.
4) In the MoonBot terminal: paste the API key (RSA) from the buffer
If you need to paste these keys into the new bot, you need to click on “Copy Keys for other bot” in the old bot, and click on “Paste Keys” in the new bot.
There is currently no advantage to using this type of key in the MoonBot terminal, on the contrary, it requires more CPU resources.
Yes, to do this, you must check the three options on the Settings – Autostart tab: “Start”, “AutoDetect” and “Strategies”. In this case, the MoonBot terminal will automatically activate the “Start”, “AutoDetect” and “Strategies” buttons after start-up.

Also check the option “Also Panic Sell all active orders” below. This protection will help you close all positions if the loss limit is exceeded.
You need to check the log entries to see what causes the bot to stop. This is possible if the automatic loss protection is activated or if API errors are exceeded. If the protection is triggered by exceeding losses, then on the tab Settings – Autostart you need to change the loss limit upwards or uncheck the option: “Stop If loss greater then”. If you have MoonBot stopped due to API errors, find the cause of the errors (restart your router, root computer, do not use Wi-Fi, etc.) or temporarily uncheck “Auto Stop if errors level > = N”.
Yes, to do this, on the Settings – Autostart tab you must tick the option: “Stop If loss greater then” (right-hand setting), set the loss limit below and specify for how many hours. If you want to reset this counter, press the black Reset inscription.

Yes, to do this, on the tab Settings – Autostart you must check the option: “Auto Stop if errors level > = N” and on the right side of the slider to set your desired error threshold (from 1 to 5), at which MoonBot will stop.
Yes, to do this, on the tab Settings – Autostart you need to put a checkmark in front of the parameter: “Auto Stop if errors level > = N” and on the right side of the slider you need to set the threshold of errors (from 1 to 5), at which MoonBot will stop. In addition, below check the “Also Panic Sell all active orders” option. If the MoonBot determines that the errors are greater than or equal to the specified threshold, it will not only stop, but will also urgently close all Sell orders.
Yes, to do this, on the tab Settings – Autostart you need to check the box “Auto Stop if errors level > = 3” and on the right side put the desired error threshold (from 1 to 5), at which MoonBot will stop. In addition, check the “Restart in 60 minutes” option below and set the time after which you want MoonBot to automatically restart the terminal in the field on the right.
Yes, to do this on the tab Settings – Autostart you need to put a tick mark against the parameter: “Auto Stop if Ping > 1000 ms” and on the right side of the slider to set your desired threshold ping (from 100 to 2000 ms), at which MoonBot will stop.
Yes, to do this, on the tab Settings – Autostart you need to put a tick mark in front of the parameter: “Auto Stop if Ping > 1000 ms” and on the right side of the slider to set your desired threshold ping (from 100 to 2000 ms), at which MoonBot will stop. Additionally below, check the “Also Panic Sell all active orders” option. If the MoonBot detects that the ping is higher than the threshold, it will not only stop, but will also urgently close all Sell orders.
Yes, to do this, on the tab Settings – Autostart you need to put a tick mark against the parameter: “Auto Stop if Ping > 1000 ms” and to the right of the slider you need to set the threshold of ping (from 100 to 2000 ms), at which MoonBot will stop. In addition, check the box below “Restart in 30 minutes” and in the field on the right set the time after which you should automatically restart the MoonBot terminal.
Yes, to do that you need to put a tick in the Settings – Autostart tab against the parameter “Blink the rate label If BTC rate changed” and below select the ranges of BTC rate volatility per hour: “Hourly BTC rate drops more then (%) -X.XX”, “Or hourly BTC rate rise more then (%) +X.XX”. If BTC rate per hour goes out of these limits, the main window of the MoonBot terminal will show BTC rate in pulsating red color.

Yes, to do this, open the Settings – Settings Wizard tab with the settings and click on the “Templates” tab, where you can select a number of templates with preset basic parameters and click Apply. But to get a more thorough understanding of the MoonBot terminal functionality, we recommend you to read the manual on our website https://moon-bot.com/en/manual/settings/, watch a number of free tutorial videos on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/@moonbot_en or you can get paid expert advice in a private MoonBot Academy English paid Telegram group (contact Kost Main https://t.me/kostmain for access to this group).
To do this, right-click on the Hvol icon in the main window of the MoonBot terminal and set the TimeFrame parameter to Max. After that, on the left side of the chart you will see a gray volume histogram for 42 hours. The top and bottom borders will be a trading price range for this time. This will help you quickly determine where the coin’s price is now (at the bottom or the top of the trading range) and make a decision to buy the coin long or short.
To do this, right-click on the Hvol icon in the main window of the MoonBot terminal and set the TimeFrame parameter to Max. After that, on the left side of the chart you will see a gray volume histogram for 42 hours. The upper and lower limits will be the trading price range for this time, and the maximum peaks of this histogram will indicate the levels, at which the largest volumes were traded. Often, price will move back to or away from these levels. You can use this information for your trading.
The drawing elements are activated in the PRO version of the MoonBot terminal if the Moon Scalper module is present and the “Pencil” button is enabled. Inside the menu “Pencil”, there is a drawing element “Pen”, with which, if you press the CTRL button on the keyboard you can draw elements on the chart with your mouse (lines, notes, explanations, arrows, etc.). In addition, if you are a member of our bonus program, you can use the additional functionality “Drawing the price on the chart”, if you check the box “Emulator” in the settings menu “Handles”. This mode allows you to draw a trace of the price, on which the crosses of trades then go, allowing you to test your strategies.
Yes, for this purpose, the terminal has a mode “Emulation of price on the chart” with the help of the tool “Pencil”, which works only when the MoonBonus module is activated. The “Chart price emulation” mode is enabled in the chart drawing menu, where you need to click on the “Pen” icon and set the “Emulator” checkbox in the settings.
In this mode, when you press CTRL+drawing with the mouse on the chart before real trades you will see the line, along which the “emulated price” will go.
This mode will allow you to check faster the strategies’ triggering at the moment of detection, as well as to check the triggers and order placement.
The drawing elements are activated in the PRO version of the MoonBot terminal if the Moon Scalper module is present and the “Pencil” button is enabled. Inside the menu “Pencil”, there is an element of drawing “Endless Horizontal Line”, which is set on the chart by clicking the mouse with the CTRL button pressed on the keyboard. This line allows to quickly mark important trading levels, support and resistance lines, to which the price comes or moves away from it. In addition, to the left of the line will be indicated the exact price of the coin, on which the line is set. Thus it is possible to mark the trading chart: round levels, to which the price often comes, lines of maximum growth or fall, levels of pro trades and other. In the same menu you can choose the type of line, its thickness, color and transparency, as well as set sound alerts that will signal when the price will cross these lines.
Drawing elements are activated in the PRO version of the MoonBot terminal if the Moon Scalper module is present and the “Pencil” button is enabled. Inside the menu “Pencil”, there is an element of drawing “Arbitrary slanting line” (trend lines), which is set on the chart with the CTRL button pressed on the keyboard, and the first click of the mouse sets the first point of the line, and the second click – the second and between these points a segment will be drawn. This line can be drawn in any variant: vertically, horizontally, but most often it is used to indicate inclined trend lines (descending or ascending). Such slanted lines help to understand if the trend is broken already or not yet, as all traders see the trend break, then after it there is a more active growth or decline in price and these patterns are used in trading. In the same menu you can choose the type of line, its thickness, color and transparency and set sound alerts which will signal when the price will cross these lines.
Drawing elements are activated in the PRO version of the MoonBot terminal if the Moon Scalper module is present and the “Pencil” button is enabled. Inside the menu “Pencil”, there is an element of drawing “Triangle”, which is set on the chart when you press the CTRL button on the keyboard, and you need to select the vertex point of the triangle, click the left mouse button and holding it and the CTRL button to stretch and orient the triangle to the desired part of the chart. Often, after a trade, the price forms a “fading price zigzag”, which forms a triangle shape at its tops and bottoms, and as soon as the price spread is minimal, the price rises sharply up or down (depending on the patterns). These are the trading moments that traders use when deciding whether or not to enter a position and this element helps us. In the same menu you can choose the type of line, its thickness, color and transparency, as well as set sound alerts that will signal when the price crosses these lines.
Drawing elements are activated in the PRO version of the MoonBot terminal if the Moon Scalper module is available and the “Pencil” button is enabled. Inside the menu “Pencil”, there is a drawing element “Fibonacci levels”, which is set on the chart when you press the CTRL button on the keyboard, and you need to select the bottom point of the chart or the top, click the left mouse button and holding it drag up or down, stretching the Fibonacci grid to the desired height. The levels will be marked with 0 / 0.236 / 0.382 / 0.500 / 0.618 / 0.786 / 1.000 / 1.618, the areas between them are colored for easy perception. In addition the level 1.618 can be extended further from the whole grid by pressing CTRL and left-clicking on the 0.618 level line. You can read more about Fibonacci levels on the Internet, but to make a long story short, price often goes from one Fibonacci level to the next and many traders use it in their trading. In the same menu you can choose the type of line, its thickness, color and transparency, as well as set sound alerts that will signal when the price crosses these lines.
Drawing elements are activated in the PRO version of the MoonBot terminal if the Moon Scalper module is present and the “Pencil” button is enabled. Inside the menu “Pencil”, there is an element of drawing “Rectangle”, which is set on the chart when you press the CTRL button on the keyboard, and you can click on the outer price level and then an infinite line appears on the chart, to the left of which will be the exact price of this level. Alternatively, you can hold down CTRL and drag that line up or down to the “Rectangular infinite area”, in which case the percentages will be shown on the left: the top percentage of price rise, the bottom percentage of price fall. This tool is very convenient to use when you need to quickly check the price spread on the chart, the delta of the up or down price increases. To estimate the distance to the nearest walls or to determine the distance to the Sell order of the purchased coin or the distance to the Buy order. For more convenient perception, the inner area of the rectangle can be colored with the desired transparency. In the same menu you can choose the line type, its thickness, line color and color of the rectangular area, their transparency, as well as set sound alerts that will signal when the price will cross these lines.
The main window of the MoonBot terminal has an M button (use multi orders). It is activated only in the PRO version and only after purchasing an additional module Moon Scalper, which extends the functionality of the MoonBot terminal.

Indeed, in the menu of the M (Multi Orders) button, you can activate the experimental setting “Allow 2 orders in solo mode”.
This option is hidden by default, and we do not recommend enabling it. Stick to one working scheme: either always in multi-order mode, or always in single-order mode, otherwise you might get confused and forget that it is active, and make actions that you did not want.
But if you really need this option, write the code CombineMultiSolo in the coin entry field in the main window of the MoonBot terminal and restart it in admin mode. By default, as long as you have 2 orders on 1 coin active, you can’t exit Multi Order mode. The “Allow 2 Orders in Solo Mode” option changes this behavior and allows you to place an order in multi mode, then exit it and continue scalping with another order on the same coin. Sell orders from multi-order mode can only be managed by dragging and dropping.
In the Multi-Order mode, if the same clicks on Buy and Sell orders are set, then the Sell order has priority, that is, if there is a Sell order, then the click will move it, if not, then the click will move the Buy order.
The Cancel Buy and Panic Sell buttons, which are located on the right side of the main window of the MoonBot terminal, control all orders on the open coin simultaneously. That is, if there are several active Buy orders when you click on Cancel Buy, they are all canceled and, accordingly, when you click on Panic Sell, all active Sell orders are sold. It is possible to cancel separately any Buy order, if you press the right button on it and choose Cancel in the menu, also in this menu you can choose Order and open the settings of this order. Besides, it is possible to cancel Buy orders if you press Tab button on the keyboard and holding it move the mouse cursor through them.
Yes, you need to right click on the “Funnel” (Filters on charts) button in the main window of the MoonBot terminal and uncheck the “Show session” option in the menu, after which the information about the sessions that are set up in the strategies in the Session tab will not be shown on the chart. In the same menu you can uncheck the “Hide zero sessions” option to hide the information about the zero sessions of the strategy on the chart.
The green area is a price corridor for an order in the MoonShot strategy, which changes its coordinates on the chart, and if the order is outside its boundaries, according to the parameters of the MoonShot strategy, it tries to return to its center. Thus, the algorithm of the MoonShot strategy order following the price is carried out. If you want to visually disable the display of this corridor on the chart, you can do it by clicking the right mouse button in the main window of the MoonBot terminal on the “Funnel” (Filters on charts) button and uncheck the “Show MoonShot price corridor” option in the menu. But it is usually left on so that the basic MoonShot strategy order placement is visually clear.
The button with the blue arrow on the main window of the MoonBot terminal is called “AutoShift Charts”. If it is pressed in ON position, the chart is attached to the right side and trades appear always starting from the right at the level of the vertical imaginary line and the chart cannot be shifted horizontally. If you want to move the chart to the left, you have to press this button and holding the left mouse button to move it to the desired side. In addition, if you first disable this button and then enable it again, all charts in the MoonBot terminal will be centered vertically.
On the main window of the MoonBot terminal there is a field “Add market…” with a search line in it, in which you can type the name of the coin you need and its chart will open immediately.

Besides, the report has filters by strategy names and if their names are the same, it will be difficult for you to sort them if they worked at the same time.
The MoonBot terminal has single and double arrows in the middle of the strategy window, which you can use to change the order of strategies. The double arrows allow you to move the strategy up or down within the folder, and the single arrows allow you to move the strategy up or down one step at a time.
The numbering near the names of the strategies in the MoonBot terminal helps you to quickly orient yourself in the order of the strategies. If you want to hide the numbering, right-click on any strategy or folder and uncheck the “Show strategy numbers” option in the menu.
If the “Delete” button is not active in the MoonBot terminal and you see a lock on it, then click on it and unlock the delete button. Then click on the strategy you want to delete and press the “Delete” button. Warning! You can only delete a strategy that is not active and has no “light” on.
If you select several inactive strategies in the MoonBot terminal and click the “Delete” button, only one strategy (the bottom one) will be deleted. To delete several strategies, you need to create a new folder and move all the strategies that you plan to delete there and then delete the entire folder with these strategies. Attention! You can delete only inactive strategies, which do not have “lights” on.
In the MoonBot terminal, pressing the “Strategies” button opens a window with strategies, in which the three buttons “Check All”, “Uncheck All”, “Delete” are blocked, and a lock icon is drawn on them. This is done on purpose to ensure that the user does not accidentally uncheck the working strategies or accidentally delete them. If you need to use these buttons, click on the lock icon and the button will be unlocked until you close the strategies window. When you reopen the strategies window, these buttons will be locked again.
Unfortunately, if you have deleted a strategy in the MoonBot terminal through the “Delete” button, you can’t get it back. We recommend to create a separate folder, name it, for example, “Trash” and there move the strategies you do not need. If you need it in 1-2 days, you can always move it from there or copy it to the working folder. You can delete the “Trash” folder on your own, for example, once a week. Besides, before deleting any strategies, we also recommend to make a backup of the file with strategies, which is located in the data folder.
In the MoonBot terminal, you cannot delete an active strategy, next to which there is a “light bulb” icon. To remove such a strategy, you must first remove the check mark and click on the “Start Checked” button, the “light” will disappear, the strategy will become inactive and then it can be removed.

You can move strategies one by one or in a group, to select multiple strategies, press CTRL (add one to selection) or SHIFT (from the first to the last selected strategy). If you want to copy the strategies, you can also do it one by one or in groups by pressing CTRL+C (copy to clipboard) and CTRL+V (paste from clipboard).
Yes, you can create folders with the same names in the MoonBot terminal. But we recommend creating folders with unique names, so there is no confusion with changing the parameters of such strategies via Telegram or sorting and inclusion in the strategies window.
The MoonBot terminal has single and double arrows in the middle of the strategy window that you can use to change the order of folders. The double arrows allow you to move a folder immediately up or immediately down, and the single arrows allow you to move a folder up or down one step at a time.
Yes, the MoonBot terminal has this option, check the box next to the folder you want and click “Start Checked” and all strategies in this folder will become active.
In the terminal MoonBot adopted the following numerical designations next to the folders, for example, if there are numbers “5/9”, then the first number indicates how many active strategies in this folder (5), and the second number indicates how many strategies in the folder (9).
You can delete a folder in the MoonBot terminal either by using the “Delete” button or by right-clicking on it and selecting “Delete Folder” from the menu.
In the MoonBot terminal, if you have an active strategy inside the folder, next to which a “light” is on or a checkmark is placed near the strategy, then such a folder cannot be deleted.

You can also right-click on a folder and select “Move To” -> “Root” -> and then click on the folder name from the list to which you want to move.
To rename a folder in the MoonBot terminal, double-click its name with the left mouse button and the folder name becomes editable. Alternatively, you can right-click on the folder name and select “Rename Folder” in the menu.
Yes, in order to sort the MoonBot terminal strategies window, write a word in the “Filter” field, for example “DropDetection” and then the list of strategies will contain all strategies Drop. Or you can write the strategy name “Test” and then all strategies with the word “Test” in their names will remain in the list of strategies. To remove the filter, remove the search phrase from the filter box.
