Getting Started

 

There are a variety of ways you can set up your hopper to use signalers. 

Your hopper can buy exclusively at the hands of signalers, or you can allow it to buy based on your own TA as well as signals. If you wish to trade using only signals, you must select the strategy: "No strategy, Manual/External signals only". 
When this is selected your Hopper's output will say that the strategy is disabled and it will only follow signals.

Subscribe

Make sure your signaler fulfills these criteria before you subscribe to them:

  • They send signals in your base currency.
  • They send signals for the exchange you're using.
  • You're satisfied with their performance report. 
  • They send signals often

How does the performance report work?

We get a lot of questions about the performance report. An important aspect to know is how the profit/losses are calculated.

The signalers' performance reports show the highest rate in a particular time block, not the exact rate after that time. We know it can give a wrong image about how much you can earn, so we have added the biggest loss in a particular time block as well. 

So if the report says:

5 min: 5% 
15 min: 15%
1h our: 10%
3 hours: 1%

It means that:

5 min: 5% - between 0-5 minutes after signal was sent, the highest profit was 5%
15 min: 15% -  between 5-15 minutes after signal was sent, the highest profit was 15%
1h our: 10% -  between 15min-1hr after signal was sent, the highest profit was 10%
3 hours: 1% -  between 1-3 hours after signal was sent, the highest profit was 1%

Trade according to the signaler

we have recently made it possible for our signalers to send out signals with custom made settings. It allows them to trade according to the following:

  • Custom Take profit
  • Custom Stop loss percentage
  • Custom Trailing stop loss percentages

If you want to trade according to these settings don't forget to enable signal configuration in your signaler settings (https://www.cryptohopper.com/signals)

Signal output 

You're subscribed, but you're not sure that you are receiving signals? At the bottom of your dashboard is the Hopper output and the "Last Signal Output". It shows in "Last Signal Output" when your last signal was received, and what your Hopper tried to do with the signal. If you're not sure if you're receiving signals correctly, or that your Hopper isn't buying them correctly, this is the first place to look.
