We do not.
In this social media age, it was a controversial decision not to have a Telegram or Discord group.
The main problem, as we see with Telegram / Discord, etc is they are community-driven information. This is great if you are looking for reviews of local restaurants or what movie to go and see.
A trading Telegram is usually full of community questions and advice…surely a good thing?
We think not.
We wish no dis-respect to community members, but we are professional full-time traders, we are good at what we do and make a living from it.
A typical Telegram channel has well-meaning information, but often this is ‘I think BTC will bounce at xxx level’.
This is toxic information in a trading environment.
You have no idea who is speaking, nor any idea of their motives or quality of information.
It is human nature to look for reassurance from others, but in the trading environment, this will likely lose you money.
Would you want your heart surgeon to take opinion from a telegram channel on the best surgery routine - we hope not.
Trading is no different. We trade every signal with our own funds and continuously and rigorously test.
If anyone needs help or has a question we have an online chat offering one to one answers, usually answered within a few hours if not minutes.
A Telegram channel might be nice, and great to have hundreds of people in a community, but it is far more likely to do harm than good.
Follow our signals, follow the settings and if there is a question or problem contact us.
As a final note, a look through the main 3Commas Telegram Channel should be enough to confirm this.
The group is generally full of chit chat, people reporting they have been scammed or questions which could have easily been answered by reading the 3Commas docs or online tutorials.
If you strongly disagree, please contact us with your thoughts - we are open to ideas.
0.3 - 0.5 BTC would be an ideal starting point. It is however possible to build an account and accumulate BTC with a smaller amount.
You can monitor an experiment we set up to grow a 0.04 BTC account using Keiko Long Signals.
At the time $300 = 0.04 BTC.
3C shows the results of all the signallers in their marketplace. The results are delayed by 24hrs.
Results in green show profit: minimum/average/maximum achieved for a particular signal. Red will show a loss.
Signallers (ie Keiko) are not able to adjust or in any way change the results, so they are a genuine picture of performance. However, the results displayed on 3C are different than the results displayed on our own site. The reason for this is 3C also shows results for signal subscriber trades.
No data means a signal was issued and there is no data yet to declare if the trade is in profit or not - so the trade may still be open.
However, because we issue many signals it is possible that there is already a trade open on a particular pair and therefore no trade is entered and the signal records 'no data' forever.
For a more detailed overview of how to understand results, please view the free course module at Keiko Academy.
We advise not to use a Stop Loss with our signals, however some traders follow advice such as 'you must always trade with a stop-loss'. When trading with bots that use dollar-cost averaging, a stop loss will very often lead to a loss.
In the image above, the most likely scenario is the trader set (against advice) a stop loss. Perhaps thinking that 5.5% was generous, they lost 5.5% whilst others took profit.
If you are uncomfortable trading without a Stop Loss please do not sign up for our signals.
Further reading is available here:
Keiko Alert is our paid monthly signal service with often thousands of signals over the month across multiple pairs. Signals are LONG only & for Binance.
Keiko Short is our paid monthly signal service, but for SHORT only & for Binance.
Keiko Futures is our paid monthly signal service which is for Binance Futures only.
Keiko Free is a free 'sampler' of Keiko Alert. They are the same signals, however the number of signals is greatly limited and only BTC pairs. You could expect to get between 0–6+ per day, compared to perhaps 10 times+ this many for the paid service.
We trade LIVE, with real funds, we do not believe in 'Paper Trading'.
We have years of experience in Forex Markets where we have seen many retail traders get destroyed, often because they initially use a Demo Account.
Demo Accounts were introduced by brokers as a way of allowing the retail traders to feel secure and profitable, which then propelled the retail trader to use real funds, often resulting in losses in the real market.
Paper trading / Demo account are not 'real', and more often than not deliver different results than the live market.
They might have perfect entries and exits, no slippage and no delay in order execution to name a few issues.
A strategy which is profitable on paper / demo will very often turn into large loses when traded in the real market. Paper/Demo trades are simulated and present the best possible outcome, unfortunately this is not an accurate picture.
Once you have signed up at the 3C Market place, register with Keiko: www.keikoalert.com/3c-reg. There you can register to gain access to the members area. THIS IS IMPORTANT!
Within the members area you have access to the latest bot settings.
You will need your 3C ID which is found on the 3Commas website. Click on Settings and your ID is top right of the settings page.
It is NOT RECOMMENDED recommended. Look at the 3C Market place statistics and you will see some loses of 3, 4, 5 %. On our own bot running our settings these loses did not occur. These are what we term rogue subscribers. Basically a subscriber has taken it upon him/herself to not follow the guidelines given.
If we suggest 0.48, then please do not enter 1.48, be confident that we are continually running LIVE trades with different parameters to verify the settings. We lose money testing so that you do not have to. Yes...on a certain day setting the TP to 2% would have made more, but over a longer time period it would not have. When there are adjustments to enable profit, we will email you.
You are always welcome to use the live support (bottom right of the desktop website screen), or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
In short the reason for this is the exchange's limitations for price step and volume step. You haven't lost part of your profit.
