Sims are a very optimistic view of a trade strategy. The first serious problem I encountered was that my bot didn’t reliably buy with real money. I made my strategy keep track of when my bot wants to buy and sell through files, and I simply watched the attempted trades pile up as files. I used Autohotkey to keep track of the files and follow through with the orders by issuing manual trade commands on behalf of zenbot. I also realized it’s a terrible time to sell when the crypto peaks. Which is why my bot now sells before peak; pigs get slaughtered. I noticed no difference in the sims, but it did fix my leak with real money.
