– Select “Save as…”

– Navigate into your C:/Program Files folder (On Windows) or just, create a new folder titled “PowerTrader” or anything you like.

– Open this new folder, save the file there. Don’t move the file from this location once things are fully setup or you will have to set it up again.

– Activate your PowerTrader subscription by going to the Dashboard page and purchasing time for whichever plan suits your needs.

Please allow about 5 minutes for our system to process your payment. You can refresh this page and if you see the number of days you have purchased up at the top then your subscription has been activated. Once your subscription has been activated, you can move to this next section: API and bot setup.

– Open your file explorer and navigate to the folder where the bot file was saved

– Double click the bot file. A black window will pop up asking for your PowerTrader username.

– Type your username, then press Enter.

– Enter your PowerTrader password

– After successful login, it will ask if you want to use saved API info.

– Type N

– Press Enter

– Now you will open a browser window, and go to

– Login if you are not already logged in

– If you have never created an API key for Kucoin Futures, you will have to deal with some one time security stuff on this API page, as well as enabling futures trading. This process varies from person to person so instructions for this part are not included here.

– You should see this on the API page. Fill it in.


– Click the Create button

– Do the security stuff

– After that, scroll down to the API info.


– Copy down the Key and Secret. You will need these for the bot. Make sure you get the Secret NOW because you will not be able to see it again.

– Next, press the change button


– Then check Trade, then press Save


– Now go back to the bot and enter in each API thing as it asks for it. Passphrase first, then Secret, finally Key.

– Once you pass that part, the bot should start flashing, showing your Account Value. This means it is working properly. The flashing will be fixed in the next update, but for now just know this it is a good thing.

– You are finished! You will be notified by email when your monthly payment is due. Other than that, sit back and enjoy the gains!


PowerTrader is time based DCA with bull run detection (longing). If you do not know what this means, we do not recommend you use PowerTrader. PowerTrader is nothing more than a tool. A tool must be used properly. There are always risks involved with trading and investments. You should still manage your portfolio, only run the bot when you feel it is safe to run it, and only invest what you are willing to lose. Past performance does not guarantee future results. We do not provide refunds. We are not providing investment advice. We are only providing software and subscriptions to use the software.
