Why doesn't my trading bot sell?

Trouble selling with your trading bot? Check sell settings, signal configurations, or if positions are locked.

There can be several reasons why your open position is not being sold.

  • Positions are checked every 16 seconds. Therefore, it's possible that your profit percentage has been reached, but the positions check hasn't occurred yet. Check this article for more information.

  • It may involve a cryptocurrency set in a config pool with different sell settings than your Base config settings.

  • You're using trading signals with 'Sell signals' and/or 'Signal config' enabled. In this case, the seller's sell settings are used to sell your positions. Click here for more information.

  • You have 'Hold position if new target is the same' set under 'Sell strategy' in the Base config.

  • You have locked your position with the lock icon on the Dashboard. Click on the lock icon to allow the trading bot to include the position for automatic selling again.
