Stoploss Not Working (Trading Bot)

I have a peculiar result and have also noticed this in other backtests… I have deal losses much higher, despite setting stoploss for much lower. Is there something with the stoplosses that is not standard?

Here this bot is 1X and there’s a 24.5% loss despite a -5% stoploss set. The take profit is by indicator.


Bug info:

  • Bot URL → Gainium app
  • [Optional] Steps to reproduce → backtest 2021, 1m timeframe
  • Expected result → -24% loss in May 21

Hi @roni.chua

It may be slippage. From 05/19/2021 to 20/05/2021 you have the biggest fall of the bear market

Thank you for your considered thoughts. Thing is in the backtesting don’t we specify the slippage already. so that should be set? i can see it could be slippage in real life, but with backtesting, shouldn’t any slippage be simulated and in a controlled environment and should not be so high?

You’re right. I don’t know if it can be due to the speed of the fall, if it’s not that I can’t help you… Maybe Ares or Maksym have an better idea of what it can be.

It was due to an incompatible settings, possibly for backtesting an old bot. We released a fix, you can try again after today’s update.
