My bot started to trade these markets on the 18th using settings from a few years ago. After the first couple of days I decided to change the settings, restricting trades to more favourable conditions.
This is where the balance has to be found. If the settings are too loose, the bot will trade many times but may have more losing positions and will likely show a net loss. As there are always going to be some losing trades, if the bot is restricted too much there wont be enough opportunities to make losses back.
The changes were made at around the 27 point and from then the graph has gone in the better direction. This was the Saturday and Sunday markets which may be significantly different to weekday markets in Australia, I don’t know, time will tell. A good first graph though.
