Python version iceberg commission strategy

Author: , Created: 2020-07-21 10:21:10, Updated:

This article brings two classic strategies for transplantation: Iceberg commission (buy/sell). The strategy is transplanted from the Iceberg commission JavaScript version of the FMZ platform. The strategy address is https://www.fmz.com/square/s:Iceberg/1

Quoting JavaScript version of Iceberg commission trading strategy introduction:

Iceberg commission refers to the fact that when investors conduct large-value transactions, in order to avoid excessive impact on the market, the large order commission is automatically split into multiple commissions, based on the current latest buy 1/sell 1 price and the price set by the trader. The strategy automatically commissions a small order. When the last commission is completely transacted or the latest price deviates significantly from the current commission price, the commission operation is automatically restarted.

Many exchange trading pages come with iceberg commissioning tools, which have rich functions, but if you want to customize some functions or modify some functions according to your own needs, you need a more flexible tool. The FMZ platform is designed to solve this problem correctly. Our strategy square hasn’t got too many Python trading strategies. Some traders who want to use Python language to write trading tools and strategies need to refer to examples. Therefore, the classic iceberg commissioning strategy was ported to the Python version.

Iceberg Commission for Python - Buying

Iceberg Commission for Python - Selling

The strategy logic is the same as that of buying, with only a slight difference.

Strategy operation

Use WexApp to simulate exchange test:





The strategy logic is not complicated. When the strategy is executed, it will dynamically place and cancel orders based on the strategy parameters and the current market price. When the transaction amount/coin number reaches or approaches the parameter setting number, the strategy stops. The strategy code is very simple and suitable for beginners. Interested readers can modify it and design a strategy that suits their trading style.
