Hi from Adelaide, Australia

Hello Everyone

My name is Jeronimo and I’m from Adelaide, Australia :slight_smile:

I’m stashing ADAs and trying to collect more by swing trading with 10% of those. I’m a software engineer and am building a robot to trade for me as I’m spending way too much time looking at candlestick charts on Binance.

Hoping to buy a couple of lambos by 2021.

Welcome! Nice to see our Australian community growing.

Hi Jeronimo

Good to have another fellow Aussie in the forum.

Are you going to open source your bot? :wink:

I started looking at something myself, initially with Coinspot, but quickly realised their API was crap so am now looking at Binance. Was also looking at integrating with Slack to allow a bit more control.

Blockquote Are you going to open source your bot? :wink:

No because sharing your algorithm makes it less likely to work.

But it’s pretty simple to build if you use Binance’s official API for your programming language. For example, if you are a Java programmer: https://github.com/binance-exchange/binance-java-api . Using that you can build a robot in half a day of work.

With less than 100 lines of code I already built the basic thing to retrieve historical prices and to receive price updates for a symbol.

From there it’s just a matter of implementing some buy/sell logic and test to see if can be profitable.

Thanks @germanobax. I have started looking at the Binance API docs.

Good luck with your trading :smile:

Welcome @germanobax

I hope you enjoy your time over here!
