Trading Settings

The Trading Settings gives you the possibility to manage all your currently active pairs and adding new ones.

Active pairs

Shows you an overview of all your currently active pairs.

By clicking on the ⛭ Symbol, you can edit the currently assigned strategy for this pair.

By clicking on Disable Gunbot will no longer trade this pair, but keep the pair itself and the strategy in your configuration, while clicking on Remove entirely removes the pair from Gunbot.

Add new pair

In this tab you'll be able to add a new pair to your Gunbot and assign a strategy to it. The data you see in the table here is directly pulled from the exchange you're trading on, giving you a live overview.

You can start adding a new pair by clicking on the ⛭ Symbol.


Not all exchanges support sharing this information to your Gunbot. In this case you'll have to enter the pair name manually.

Pair naming conventions

Gunbot uses a standardized format for entering trading pairs, this allows you to use the same syntax for all exchanges you might use.

Where possible it uses this notation: BASECOIN-QUOTECOIN

All pairs with BTC as base currency are written like: BTC-ETH, BTC-ATOM, BTC-ETH

All pairs with USDT as base currency are written like: USDT-BTC, USDT-ETH, USDT-XMR

Pair naming on dYdx: USD-ETH, USD-BTC, etc.


The base coin in Gunbot is the one used to buy another asset. Be aware that some exchange display pair names in the exact reverse order.

Pair naming for futures exchanges

The long and short sides on Bybit are split into separate pairs in Gunbot. Use USDT-BTC-LONG for the long side of your strategy and USDT-BTC-SHORT for the short side of your strategy. Each side pair can only open positions in that direction.

Pairs on Bitmex use almost the same symbols as on Bitmex itself, but with a hyphen-minus between the two asset names. Example: XBT-USD

Pairs on Kraken Futures follow the following conventions:

  • Perpetual contracts: XBT-USD, ETH-USD, LTC-USD, etc.
  • Monthly futures: XBT-MONTH, ETH-MONTH, LTC-MONTH, etc
  • Quarterly futures: XBT-QUART, ETH-QUART, LTC-QUART, etc

Other supported futures exchanges do not require manual pair name entry. Gunbot will list them in their correct format.

Strategy Settings

The strategy editor is where you can configure strategy settings for new pairs, adjust settings for running pairs, copy settings and everything else related to strategy management.

Because many strategies work differently on spot or futures markets, the editor will only show relevant strategy options for the pair you are adding or editing.

Creating a strategy

When you select a new trading pair, a dialog opens where you can configure the strategy settings to trade with.

Any settings change is saved for the selected pair only. If you want to use the same settings (or parts of it) on multiple pairs, you can copy the settings to/from other pairs. To re-use settings in the future, you can also save pair strategy settings as a preset.

Built-in strategies

Some strategies have their own set of settings, and require the buy and sell method to be identical.

These 'built-in' strategies are listed in the strategies dropdown, for example stepgrid or spotgridadvanced. You can configure them individually, although not all inner workings are disclosed. Such strategies do not share the common settings parameters with other kinds of strategies in Gunbot.


The 'builder' strategy lets you configure a strategy using a common set of settings parameters, each documented in detail.

The chosen buy and sell method can be different, for example buy with bb and sell with tssl.


If you like one of your customized strategies, you can save it as a preset for easy future use. A preset shows in the list of available strategies, next to the built-in strategies.

There is no limit to the number of presets that can be saved. Presets can be removed when no longer in use by an active trading pair.

Copy Actions

Bulk changes are possible by copying settings from or to other pairs.

Copy from/to

Copies the complete pair settings: the assigned strategy plus all customized parameters.

Copy individual parameter

Copies the value of an individual parameter to one or more pairs.
