Some exchanges offer <0% for native order templates. The Scalper Bot gives you the ability to take advantage of this.
Some exchanges offer alternative fees for using native templates. Utilizing these will adjust the profit calculation.
The Target Percentage determines the minimum profit of the bot. To overcome the fee, the Target Percentage needs to be twice the fee. When the bot is in a bought position, the price needs to rise by a predetermined percentage before the bot executes a sell order. Conversely, when the bot is in a sold position, the price must drop by a specific percentage before the bot buys again.
The safety threshold acts as a "Stop-Loss" for both sides. For example, a setting of 2% allows the price to change by 2% before the safety creates an order to change the bots positions. Similarly, a setting of 98% allows the price to change by 98% before the safety creates an order to change the bots positions.
