I started working with https://gemini.com, they actually have integration with FIX protocol, which I’m currently not using because you cant easily connect like the HTTP based APIs https://docs.gemini.com/fix-marketdata/#connecting

They do have a websocket API which is really nice for getting streaming market data.

For me new to fin tech programming it’s good to build from scratch to learn all the nuances of how the exchanges work.

I’m thinking of making project out of this and sharing the code with a few interested developers, potentially open sourcing it when its ready but the first test will be to see if we can make any money from it.

Right now BitCoin is rising so fast, it’s near impossible to beat the market, but I see an opportunity given how volatile it is.

A killer advantage of GDAX is it’s hosted out of AWS US East, so can get on the same network as the exchange without having to pay for colocation.

Now using the CCXT library, https://github.com/ccxt/ccxt. My bot is trading and have it programmed to:

  • Buy lower than market and sell higher than market
  • Only sell higher than the last buy (even if the system is restarted)
  • Buy a normalized size, example if the price goes to $20k it can buy $100 worth
  • Resilient to errors and restarts

Todo:

  • Have it trade based on indicators

Will be willing to share the bot code with contributors 😀
