Auto Trade Exchange Connection

Crypto-ML’s Auto Trade connects our trade signals directly to your exchange account, allowing you to manage your crypto portfolio with Crypto-ML’s machine learning.

All exchange connections are done from the Auto Trade Exchange Setup page.

How to Connect Multiple Accounts

To trade more than one pair, you can purchase our Multi-Account Addon. This will allow you to trade with up to five trading pairs, rather than choosing just one.

After purchasing the Multi-Account Addon, you can head over to your Exchange Setup page.

You will then associate different API keys with each pair you want to trade. Each API key is referred to as an Exchange in Auto Trade.

To add a new exchange connection, simply click Add New Exchange and enter the corresponding API information.

Configuring Binance Sub Accounts

Binance has a Sub Account feature that is similar to Coinbase Pro’s Portfolios. Each Sub Account will have its own API key that you will connect to Crypto-ML Auto Trade as a new Exchange.

Important considerations:

  • Not all Binance accounts are eligible. You must have a Tier 1 account or higher.
  • For information from Binance, see Binance’s Sub-Account post and Tier Requirements.
  • If you are a Tier 1, but later move to Tier 0, you will not lose your Sub Account feature.
  • If you are Tier 0, simply submit a Support Request to Binance and request the feature be added to your account. Per our community, Binance has always granted this feature upon request.

If you are unable to activate Sub Accounts, you have two options:

  1. Open additional Binance accounts, which is allowed.
  2. Auto trade with both Binance and Coinbase Pro accounts.

Once you have the Sub Account feature in Binance, you can create sub-accounts by going to Account Management and clicking Create Sub Account.

Once you have Sub Accounts created, you can generate unique API keys for each.

To connect these Sub Accounts to Crypto-ML Auto Trade:

  1. In Binance, follow the standard API creation instructions above.
  2. You will select the sub-account the API is for.
  3. Create new API keys for each sub-account and enter them in your Auto Trade Exchange Setup page as a new Exchange tab.

Once your API information is entered on your Crypto-ML Exchange Setup page, you can go back to your Auto Trade Dashboard and activate Auto Trade for each.

Configuring Coinbase Pro Portfolios

Trading multiple pairs via a single Coinbase Pro account is simple thanks to Coinbase Pro’s Portfolio feature.

To set up multiple trading sub-accounts within Coinbase Pro:

  1. Log in to Coinbase Pro
  2. Click on Portfolios (top right)
  3. Click Create (top left)
  4. Create a Portfolio for each coin you want to Auto Trade
  5. To fund a new Portfolio, click on the Portfolio and then Deposit.
  6. Select your funding “source” as your Default Portfolio to transfer some money from it to your new Portfolio.

This allows you to separate out funds into your different Portfolios.

For example, you may put 50% of your trading funds in a BTC Portfolio, 25% in an ETH Portfolio, and 25% in a BCH Portfolio.

Now you will connect each Portfolio individually to Crypto-ML Auto Trade:

  1. In Coinbase Pro, follow the standard API creation instructions above.
  2. After you click New API Key you will see the option to select your Portfolio.
  3. Create new API keys for each Portfolio and enter them in your Auto Trade Exchange Setup page, each in a new Exchange tab.

Once your API information is entered on your Crypto-ML Exchange Setup page, you can go back to your Auto Trade Dashboard and activate Auto Trade for each.

4.8 Auto Trade Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Am I in charge of the API connection

    Yes. You can remove your key details from your Crypto-ML Exchange Setup at any time. You may also delete your key back on your exchange. By removing your key, Crypto-ML will no longer be able to communicate with your exchange.

  2. If I have the membership, do I need to enable auto trading?

    No. Having an “Auto Trade” membership gives you access to Auto Trade functionality and all features in the “Trader” and “Free” memberships.

    While you have access to the advanced functionality, you may turn it on or off as appropriate for your trading strategy. You may also downgrade or upgrade your membership at any time. See the Subscriptions tab of your Account.

  3. How are orders entered?

    When Crypto-ML’s machine learning issues a trade alert for the cryptocurrency you have selected for Auto Trade, the following will happen:

    Open Order: An order will be entered on your behalf using all available fiat. You will receive email notification of both the alert and the execution. Your Auto Trade Dashboard will reflect the new position.

    Close Order: An order will be entered on your behalf using all available cryptocurrency (for the currency you have selected). You will receive email notification of both the alert and the execution. Your Auto Trade Dashboard will reflect the new position.

  4. How do I choose the amount of funds to use?

    The funds used will consist of the balance you have in your selected Market, as well as Bitcoin and Ethereum. The balances in these three will combine to make up your Portfolio Value. This is the amount that will be managed by Auto Trade.

    Balances in other Markets and other cryptocurrencies will be excluded from Auto Trade.

  5. Which fiat and stablecoins (Markets) does Auto Trade support?

    Crypto-ML supports the Markets your exchange sends us. This is based on your exchange and geographic regulation. All are interchangeable and follow USD-based signals.

    For Binance, USDT tends to have the highest liquidity. For Coinbase Pro, USD tends to have the highest liquidity.

  6. How can I stop auto trade?

    Go to your Auto Trade Dashboard and hit the Stop Auto Trade button. That is the graceful method to shut down Auto Trade. You may also remove your API Key from Crypto-ML or delete it from your exchange.

  7. How can I best secure my Crypto-ML account?

    If you enter your key, we recommend securing your Crypto-ML account with a strong password and Two-Factor Authentication (2FA). Learn more about Crypto-ML 2FA.

  8. How can I best enhance the security of my trading accounts?

    In addition to setting up Crypto-ML 2FA, you should take the following steps:
    Configure 2FA with your exchange.

    Do not enable “transfer” or “withdrawal” permissions on your APIs, as noted above in our configuration guides. This ensures APIs cannot move money out of your exchange.

  9. Should I be an experienced and sophisticated trader?

    Yes. Auto Trade is a tool for experienced and sophisticated traders. Please review important Crypto-ML Terms and Conditions to ensure Auto Trade is suitable for your risk tolerance, experience, and financial goals.

  10. Should I give Crypto-ML ‘transfer’ permissions?

    No. You should only provide “Trade” and “View” permissions to Crypto-ML. Crypto-ML will not need to initiate transfers (between your exchange and your bank).

  11. Do I need to use the IP Address Whitelist feature?

    We recommend whitelisting Crypto-ML’s IP addresses in order to better secure your connection. Binance now requires this. It is optional for Coinbase Pro.
