Bitmex_Testnet: Market Maker Config + AutoConfig Bundle Package

type_autoconfig developer


This package is setup as a quiet little trade churner on XBTUSD. It is designed in mind to manage positions through DCA while incorporating Risk Management. This config has been explicitly setup for BITMEX_TESTNET so you can have a play and see how this config operates without losing rent money.

I started with the original version of this config on 6th January 2020 on Bitmex itself (2.5 months) and have slowly been tuning and bug fixing over a variety of markets to achieve 99.9% uptime and automation so far.

AutoConfig Features

  • Trend Detection
  • Liquidation Price tracking
  • ROE trailing
  • Position Size Risk Management
  • Bag Handling Method: DCA (dollar cost averaging)

Setup Instructions

  • This config is "as is" for BITMEX_TESTNET. There are no changes required to any strategy settings
  • Do NOT attempt to change strategy settings (even TL). AutoConfig will override your changes.
  • Add your BITMEX_TESTNET API keys
  • Add in your GUNTHY wallet details
  • Add in Telegram details (if needed)
  • Start the bot.
  • Let the bot run for 60mins. This is to allow Autoconfig to gather enough "snapshot" data. Once completed, the bot will automatically start trading.


  • Trading on Margin/Future has high risk. Don't trade with rent money
  • This IS NOT a lambo config
  • This IS NOT a 1% daily ROI setup.
  • Autoconfig uses Snapshot Data collection schedule. If you turn the bot off for any length of time, this can badly affect performance for Autoconfig's Trend Detection.
  • Config is compatible with BITMEX. If you understand how to edit config.js and autoconfig.json, all you need to do is replace all instances of "bitmex_testnet" with "bitmex" and add in your Bitmex API keys

Feedback is welcome.
