After you have successfully registered API keys and the Bot has established a connection to the exchange, the main window will look like this:
In this example Ethereum coin chart has been added to chart’s frame manually, by typing the coin’s token (ETH) in the “Add Market” field. If the name of the token comes in the type of a Signal in the chat, its chart is displayed automatically.
First of all, until the Start button is pressed, the Bot will not place any orders, even if you press the “Buy” button. You can safely adjust the settings, and click Start only after you are ready to start trading.
The Total BTC line shows your total bitcoins balance on exchange’s account and it’s USDT equivalent.
In the middle of the main window there is the coin’s interactive chart.
In the bottom of the main window there is the log window, at the very bottom there is the status bar with the connection status, ping to the exchange server, local clock accuracy. The Bot synchronizes the time automatically at startup, however, on some systems administrator privileges are required for this function to operate.
Main settings that you may want to adjust before trading:
Your buy order volume in bitcoins. I suggest to use not more than 10% of total balance, at least until you gain experience in trading. Adjust the volume by the “Use BTC for buy order” slider (1..100% of total balance) or by setting up predefined fixed order buttons (Hotkeys tab).
Buy price (the “Buy for [price before pump started] + X%” slider). The Bot continuously scans all coins, when a signal comes to buy a certain coin, the Bot takes the price of this coin 30 seconds before the signal and adds to this price X%. For example, the price before the pump was 0.100 BTC, the slider is set to 5%. Then the Bot will set up buy order for 0.105. In this case, it should be borne in mind that depending on the order book at the time of issuing your order, the actual purchase price may be less than the specified price (but never more). For example, there were sell orders of 1 BTC at 0.104 and 1 BTC at 0.105 in the book, the Bot puts an order for 3 BTC at 0.105. In this case, your order will be partially executed for 2 BTC at the average price (0.104 + 0.105) / 2 = 0.1045, the rest 1 BTC will left unexecuted in the book.
Sell price (the “Sell for [actual buy price]+Y%” slider). After your buy order has been executed or partially executed order has been cancelled, the Bot will immediately set sell order for all bought coins. Sell price is set as Y% more, then actual buy price. In the above example, you actual buy price was 0.1045. If you set Y% slider to 10%, the Bot will put sell order at (0.1045+10%)=0.11495
DESCRIPTION OF THE MAIN INTERFACE ZONES
To view information on the interested zone, click on the line below it.
1) MAIN CONTROL AREA
“Start” button. Without the button being pressed, no purchases will be made. The bot will not place orders, even if you press the “Buy” button. You can safely change the settings, and press Start only after everything is ready.
“Settings” button. This is the menu for more in-depth setting up the bot, it is described in the next section of the manual.“
Pairs: BTC” button. Owners of the Pro version of Moon Bot can switch and trade in pairs BTC, USDT, PAX, ETH, BNB. For owners of the Free version, the functionality is limited to a BTC pair.
“Menu” button. Consists of the following items:
Emulation mode. When you activate the mode, you begin to trade *a virtual account*. All profit or loss from transactions will be unrealistic. Used for training and testing your new strategies without risk towards the deposit. When activated, in the control zone, the inscription *Config: Default* will switch to *EMULATOR*.
Order size. This parameter allows you to select the option to specify the size of the order: Fixed or Floating. Floating order type allows you to set the size of the order with a slider as a percentage of the available deposit, you can assign a fixed size of the order to four buttons (for example, 0.1Btc; 0.5Btc; 1Btc; 5Btc) and quickly switch between them using hotkeys or the mouse.
Setting price buy. The bot always analyzes the prices. You can place a buy order using the current market price (+/- X% depending on the purchase conditions you specify) or place an order on the minimum price for the last 30 seconds (+/- X% depending on the purchase conditions you specify). If you participate in the pumps, it will save you from buying at the peak.
Interface settings. This is one of the separate tabs in the *Settings* menu, which will be described below.
Manual trading. You can trade by setting conditions: buy, sell, stop loss, trailing, blacklist, etc. on the main screen of the bot and in the basic general settings. If you wish, for more subtle settings of these parameters and additional parameters, you will need to create a *manual strategy* and select *Use manual strategy* in this tab, then click on the blue caption that appears and select the created strategy for manual trading. Different trading activities require totally different sell prices, stops, trailings, etc. so this option allows you to prepare several manual trading strategies and quickly and easily switch between them, depending on the current market volatility or scenario.

2) SETUP ZONE. ACCOUNT INFORMATION, ORDER MANAGEMENT, BUY/SELL MANAGEMENT ZONE
Total BTC. Displays your available BTC balance not occupied by orders.
Displays the current BTC rate in pair to USDT on the exchange ($5874). On the example of this picture, -0.1% shows the change in the BTC price compared to its average price 1 hour ago, a -4.6% change compared to the price 24 hours ago. The parameters in brackets +0.3% show the average change in all prices for altcoins compared to the prices 1 hour ago and -1.2% shows the change in relation to the price of alcoins 24 hours ago.
Use xxxxx BTC for buy order (USDT equivalent). The choice of order size, in the Free version, the maximum order size is limited to $ 40 USDT equivalent in BTC. The minimum order size on the Binance Exchange is usually 0.002 BTC at least (approximately $ 7-8 min lot size). We recommend placing an order size of at least 0.0025 BTC so that if the value of the coin falls, you can still sell it. indeed, if the held coin value falls less that the exchange minimum set lot value, you will not be able to sell it. If you have an open Moonbot sell order, you will not be able to replace it, taking into consideration the information just mentioned.
Sell for [actual buy price]+Y%. After the execution of the buy order or after the cancellation of the partially executed order, the Bot immediately puts all the purchased coins for sale at Y% higher than the actual purchase price. When the slider is moved to the left until the end, the Scalping Mode is activated and below the slider appears with the sell settings from 0.02 to 2%.
If good pump then Sell for [actual buy]+X%. The sell price in case of detection of the conditions specified in the section (Settings-Conditions for a good pump). Is set similarly as a percentage of the actual purchase price. Thus if the start price after the start of the pamp began to comply with the specified conditions and the pamp * is good *, then the sell order will be set higher.
BNB balance. For transactions on the Binance exchange a commission is taken. If you have BNB tokens on your account, then you can pay the commission with them and get a 25% discount. The remaining balance is displayed here in order to be able to buy them in time. In Moon Bot is also implemented autopurchase of BNB tokens.
3) TRADE MANAGEMENT SECTION. AUTOMATION SETTINGS.
Mode: Signals. In the “Signals” mode (activated by the “Manual Signals” mode switch button), the bot will buy coins based on the detected signals in telegram / strategies automatically, according to the specified conditions. In the “Manual” mode, only a notification about the detect will be made, auto-purchase will not be made.
Help. Compact in-line (offline) manual stored in your program.
Reports. In this tab you will be able to see a report on completed transactions, sort them by: time, coin name, order size, manual or autotrading by a certain strategy, by BTC delta rate at the time of opening a transaction, etc. By clicking on the name of the coin in this section, you can see the chart of your transaction (by default, charts are stored for 7 days, this parameter can be changed in the settings->advanced).
Vol., H.Vol: Daily and hourly volume of the coin. Coins with small daily volume are better suited for pumps. If hourly volume is much more then 1/24 of daily volume, it means that the coin has already been bought in advance, in this case the probability of successful pump is low.
buy, sell: current prices.
buy x4, x2: Total buy volumes at 1/4 and 1/2 of the current price, respectively. In other words, support volumes.
sell x2 , x3, x4: Total sell volumes at 100%, 200% and 300% of the current price. The sell x2 price level can be adjusted in advanced settings. The smaller the x2 sell wall, the higher price can raise during pumps. On the other hand, If the x2 wall is too small, there could be no more sell orders to fill your buy order when unfair admin make his pre-buy. Having buy x2 support also increases the likelihood of a successful pump.
h. Delta: Price deviation for the last hour. Indicates prepumps.
Pumps Count: Consists of two values: pumps count of this coin for the last week and the average probability of selling the coin at higher price when you buy at random time. This parameter allows you to estimate the risk to stick with bought coin and exit the pump couple days later without losses.
72h Channel: Consists of two values: the average hourly price deviation for the last 3 days and the ratio of min. to max. daily volumes for the last 10 days without taking into account pumped deviations. These parameters allow you to estimate the influence of fundamental causes on the trend. For example, if a coin falls in price after the appearance of unfavorable news, the probability of breaking this trend by a pump is not high; and vice versa, if a coin has recently started to grow, then the pump of this coin can attract additional attention to it, and the growth will continue even higher.
Pump Q : Nominal value that characterizes the suitability of a coin for pump. Calculated on the basis of all the above parameters.
PriceStep: Price increment (first value is the price increment on the current trading pair, the second value is for the BTC pair).
When sorting coins by price increment and click the right mouse button on a chosen coin, you can copy all coins from the current one and above to clipboard and this will allow for a faster creation of the blacklist
Opening a chart is done by clicking on a pair (for example, BTC-BNB)
Close ALL orders: cancels all open buy orders and activates Panic Sell on all open sell orders.
Export to csv: allows you to save the selected report in csv format, which can be opened in Excel and produce the necessary sorting and analysis of strategies.
Autodetect: off. In the case of off, even running strategies will not work, to activate work on signals and strategies, you must put the button in the “On” position.
