This topic is continued from here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=222696.0 as this forum is more relevant for service discussion.

Overview
CryptoTrader is an algorithmic trading platform for Bitcoin,alt crypto-currencies and even Ghashes. We provide backtesting feature for strategy development and robot driven trading over our secure VPS cloud. The CryptoTrader API allows to implement and test fully featured algorithmic trading strategies, as well as automate trading.

Supported exchanges & instruments
- Bitstamp BTC/USD
- Bitfinex BTC/USD
- BTC-E BTC/USD,LTC/BTC,LTC/USD
- CEX.IO GHS/BTC
- Kraken XBT/EUR

Advantages
- Fully hosted solution - nothing to install and requires no technical knowledge as trading bots run on our VPS cloud. Technically, every paid subscriber gets his own virtual machine in a couple of minutes after registration.
- Support for 130 trading indicators. Full list is available here https://cryptotrader.org/talib
- A lot of time tested trading strategies. Some examples can be found here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=261086.0 or here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=222696.0

In order to start automated trading:
1. Register at the website and upgrade your account to one of the subscription plans https://cryptotrader.org/plans. Plan prices start at just $15/month.

2. Pick a trading strategy. You can either use an algorithm created by other traders or develop one by yourself if you have programming skills. Some well-tried strategies can be found at the home page under 'Featured' tab.

3. Backtest the trading strategy you are going to use. In order to understand how the strategy performs on historical market data, open backtesting tool and paste the code into the editor. Configure backtest settings if needed using the form at top. Then click 'Backtest' button. Once the simulation is finished, you will get a log contaning all trades done by the algorithm. Backtesting is an important procedure to test validity of any trading strategy.

4. Click 'Trade' button, you will see the form that allows you to configure trading bot, put you API key & secret into it and then click 'Start'. After connecting to the exchange, you trading bot configuration should appear at https://cryptotrader.org/live where the bot will log all its trading activity.

Start trading

Thanks for the link again.

I registred now and planned to upgrade, but when i'm testing anything with LTC/USD or LTC/BTC on BTC-e i can't find any Featured strategy that works.

Any help?

Code in the editor becomes really cluttered when many classes handling different indicators are in it, which is really necessary if you are trying to develop successful mulch-indicator strategies. Much time is spent scrolling up/down in the editor. Would you consider using something like this https://github.com/fairfieldt/coffeescript-concat so code can be structured a bit and easier to work with? I know it would complicate the editor/saving work, etc, but it would be worth the effort.

It won't be easy to integrate that preprocessor tool, as it's server side not client side. What about adding fullscreen feature to the editor?

Good! This seem to integrate easily, has syntax highliting for CoffeeScript:

It doesn't have to be fullscreen, just a bit bigger vertical size to see more of the code.

Are there any other scripts that work with CEX trading other than the default EMA 10/21? I tried running backtests on some of the scripts posted in the contest but they all showed 10-20% losses on CEX. So far it seems like the default EMA 10/21 with 1hr is the only semi profitable one.

Greetings!

Is there any way to create synthetic data (BTC candles created based-on a seed) in order to backtest and simulate trading strategies?

e.g. that way we could simulate something like 100 years of BTC prices generated by a seed that contains the prices of BTC since 2011 to nowadays.

BTW, great application. Very well done.

Keep up the great work!

It should work, but i can't provide exact instructions because i dont have access to windows machine. Most likely you will need to have Visual Studio C++ compiler installed.

Thanks for your feedback. Could you suggest some readings about the simulation method based on a seed?

where can I find algorithms to test?

Some interesting algos can be found here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=261086.160

EMA definitely works because today my bot on CEX.IO made few bucks on account with a small deposit of 0.5 BTC.

What time period are you using? I'm using 1 hour and it hasn't made any trades today except this morning/last night with a sell at 0.0944 from a buy of 0.0974.

It may have gotten stuck as there was some ghs left that didn't sell for some reason, does it not buy until all ghs is sold?

2013-11-11 05:02 SELL order #7290762 amount: 0.0328 GHS @ 0.0944
2013-11-11 05:02 SELL order #7290762 traded. Balance: 0.0002 GHS (0.0000 BTC) 0.6203 BTC
2013-11-11 06:00 SELL order wasn't created because the amount is less than minimum order amount

I trade on hourly time frame. From the chart you can see that GHS/BTC is downtrending so don't expect bot to trade actively until the market bounced back.
An order was not placed because 0.0002 GHS is very small amount - it is just 0.0000188 BTC. Minimum order amount for CEX.IO is set to 0.01 GHS.

Thanks for feedback. Live trading is available for paid subscription only, though in my opinion the rates are very affordable for such kind of service.
