2. Configure your Bot settings
In this tab you will need to configure your bot settings, options are endless and 3commas FAQ may help to understand each setting.
Here is a screenshot of a quick 1D BTC/USDT bot that will buy and sell on each signal (No SL/ No TP / 100% equity of your Binance account)
Remember to have USDT in your account prior activating your bot!
With this settings, your Binance account will switch from USDT to BTC on Longs and stay flat (USDT) on shorts.
Earning USD to the upside and BTC to the downside.
2.1 Trading Alts!
If you are looking to trade Alts and run multiple bots, settings should be the same BUT the base order size must be adjusted to a smaller %
Screenshot as example:
3. Configure your alerts in TradingView
Once your bot in 3commas is generated, you will need to set up your alerts in TradingView that will trigger the trades on the platform.
Now on Tradingview:
Configure Webhook field in TradingView:
Tradingbot with MARGIN/Futures:
You will need PRO subscription in 3commas for Margin trading.
If you are willing to use leverage for your trading (i.e Bitmex, Binance Futures) configuration is similar but you need to tweak the messages on Tradingview to:
⦁ Sell signals — First Closes longs and Open shorts on Sell signals.
⦁ Buy signals — First Closes Shorts and Open Longs on Buy signals.
This means no manual intervention is required and it essentially means you are always in a trade catching all the signal swings.
Each message in tradingview alerts should look like this, where 1st instruction is to close (long or short) and next (after 10 seconds delay) open the opposite trade.
“email_token”: “Your Token”,
“email_token”: “Your Token”,
Information about this can be found in this link:
Here is a screenshots under that settings for the LONG bot:
and That’s it! =)…
Once the first Buy signal pops in Tradingview, 3commas bot should execute the order and you should see under DCA Bots → My deals something like this:
Profitability with this strategy has turned quite good over 2020:
