After many years of working on Gekko, I’ve decided to stop my involvement in maintaining this project. You can read more about this decision on medium.
If you’re interested in following this new journey, feel free to add me on Twitter.
Best of luck to everyone in their trading. So long, and thanks for all the fish!
Define your own trading strategy and Gekko will take care of everything else.
Gekko will take care of:
Gekko is free and 100% open source, you download and run the software on your own machine. Gekko only talks to the exchanges (if you want it too). We don't know anyhing about your strategies, usage, portfolio size or anything else (unless you tell us).
Gekko supports 16 different exchanges (including Bitfinex, Bitstamp and Poloniex). Just tell Gekko which exchange you want to interact with and Gekko talks directly to the exchange.
Gekko makes it possible to create your own trading strategies using TA indicators. Once you created it you can use Gekko to backtest your strategy over historical market data or run against the live market (using either a paper trader or real trader - making it a trading bot).
Using plugins Gekko is able to update you wherever you are! Plugins are available for IRC, telegram, email and a lot of other platforms. Without effort you are able to add your own plugins to Gekko.
Gekko comes with a webinterface (written from scratch) that let's you monitor your local data, strategies and can run backtests and visualize the results.
Gekko runs flawlessly on all major operating systems (Windows, Linux, macOS), you can run it in the cloud or on your raspberry PI without any problems!
