Settings Explanation

  1. Buy Amount: The amount of USDT to put into each coin. Not recommended to go below about 0.50 USDT, but also, smaller numbers allow easier diversification for smaller account balances.
  2. DCA Start Value: This is the percentage of the original value of USDT put into a coin where the bot would add more funds to the coin the average down the potential sell price for easier order completion on tougher trades. Example: Using a Buy Amount of 1, a DCA Start Value of 75 would mean holdings for a coin would need to drop in value from 1 usdt to 0.75 usdt for Coin Collector to add another 1 usdt to average down the position.
  3. Auto-Increase Buy Amount: When Coin Collector has put your Buy Amount into every coin it can and it starts having a stockpile of USDT, you can set it to automatically increase your Buy Amount. It increases by 0.50 USDT each increase. If you have 1 USDT in each coin and your Buy Amount Auto-Increases, Coin Collector will start adding 0.50 USDT to each coin to make up the difference between the current new increased Buy Amount and the previous Buy Amount.
  4. Profit Margin: This is the percent difference between how much USDT was put into a coin versus how much it needs to be valued to sell and take profit. With a Buy Amount of 1, a Profit Margin of 1 means the value of each coin in your holdings must go up to 1.01 usdt to sell and take profit (Works like a Stop order, must be hit from above to below, not below to above, to allow for Trailing Margin).
  5. Trailing Margin: If the current value of your holdings in a coin go over the Trailing Margin percent above your Profit Margin, then your profit margin gets raised to the Trailing Margin percent below the current value.
  6. Profit Separation: Percent of the profit from each trade to be moved to your Main account on Kucoin. This allows you to compound your Trading account while also gathering USDT in your Main account for other uses.
  7. Trade-Only List or Avoidance List: Trade-Only List lets you tell Coin Collector which coins to trade and it will only trade those specific coins. Avoidance List lets you tell Coin Collector which coins NOT to trade, and it will trade every coin possible except those specific coins.
