The New rules make it impossible to setup autotrading strategies. It’s virtually impossible to take them into account in strategy algorithms, as the nature of the market is unpredictable. The situation may require 1 limit order or 10, these 10 orders may or may not be executed, because it depends on the market, not the trader. For example one may need to average a position in certain conditions, but may already be banned suddenly.
In short, 65% of our users have decided to stop their bots, and trading volumes of the remaining 35% is now a third of what it was.
The rules are simply obstructive for no purpose. For example, they prevent 55 limit orders on 55 symbols, even though orders that sit in the order book do not put an unreasonable load on Binance’s resources. The result simply harms traders and market liquidity.
The Rules are written very poorly, to understand how it works from the description and formulas on the site. Our users are trying for the 4th day to find out the exact mechanics, including asking binance support, and still haven’t succeeded. (Support case IDs: #83720234, #83751731, #83821365, #83818388, #83799210, etc… )
3.1) For example, how to count the 10-minute period? According to various support answers, it is either 10 minutes back from the current time, or intervals from 0 minutes to 10, 10-20 and so on. At the same time neither of the variants was right in our tests: a user had traded 40 symbols between 16:41 and 16:48, 5 of them had 10 unfilled orders (this is UFR exceeding), so he must have been banned; but in fact this wasn’t the case.
In another example, the user was trading between 19:01 and 19:13, overshoted UFR criteria; at 19:13 he stopped the bot and removed all orders, however was banned after 3 minutes at 19:16 (why not at 19:11 , right after 10 minutes as binance support told?)
3.2) Let’s consider the formula “All orders count within the cycle >= 10,000/(1.2^(N-1))” from the official document.
What is “All orders count”?
Imagine we take 2 symbols, put 1 order on each. After 1 minute we cancel both orders and set new ones. Each time our orders remain unfilled. So each minute we cancel 2 orders and set 2 new ones. What will be our “All orders count within the cycle”, what do you think? Is it 2, if only active orders are counted? 20, if all new orders including those already canceled are counted? No one from binance support gave the correct answer. Which is, according to our tests, 10. Surprised? looks like someone just forgot to mention in the official document “All orders count per market”.
3.3) Lack of continuous data about current limits utilization via the API.
There is an endpoint getTradingStatus. Unlike API weight, this endpoint either returns an empty result (“you are ok”) or suddenly reports that you have already been banned. For example, put 52 orders on 52 different symbols and call this endpoint from time to time.
When working with classic API weight, you can operate with current utilization in percentage of the limit. For example. if the limit is 1200 orders per minute, and you have used 600 (50% usage), you can slightly reduce the bot’s activity. When you are at about 75% utilization, you can reduce it more, in order to keep some “emergency stockpile”, in case you need to emergency exit or average a position.
When working with these new rules and getTradingStatus, you will only know that you are already banned.
Inadequate rules, coupled with a lack of accurate and precise limit algorithms, and no data via the API about the current utilization of those limits, makes autotrading impossible!
The new API restrictions rules for futures are not clear to me. They are not feasible, they interfere with normal trading. It has become almost impossible to trade a trading robot using grid averaging over several pairs at the same time. I do not understand how, due to the new restrictions, to configure trading bots so as not to receive a ban on a coin or an account. Now it has become very easy and unexpected to lose money on my trading deposit due to these new rules. The exchange does not think about its customers at all, contrary to the statements. It seems that now we will have to look for an alternative exchange with acceptable trading rules.
Still we are having issue with hitting limits Binance do not seem interested in dealing with this or clarifying the rules or adding API information that would allow you to monitor your ratio and take actions according.
What is happening now is feeling very much like we don’t care about you smaller guys as long as out key players have free roam of the API but you must limit what you do for the sake of the VIP 6?
Binance was built because of traders like us without us things will not be so great. already we are seeing futures issues with less traders in the market and less algo’s able to participate at previous levels it’s become much more easy for the big players to take advantage over everyone else.
I see zero input here from Binance on this issue which tells me they do not care because the rules suit the people they have golden handshakes with while pushing everyone else to find somewhere else to trade.
It’s clear that Binance are not going to revoke this limit and let us go back how how things are before.
For me this is looking like the end of an era with Binance sad to see this happen and have so much information from some of the top traders on Binance also saying the rules are terrible.
We need to ensure this topic is not going to sleep to make change we need to have engagement from Binance dev’s around this issue and Binance need to teach there support exactly what the rules mean and not “interpret” them as they see them that is not suitable.
Keep pushing everyone we built Binance from fees and provide massive amounts of trading activity and liquidity something you would expect an exchange to welcome… But now not so much by the looks of the situation.
One of the worst updates in the history of binance updates. Strange formulas are absolutely not clear. There is no api documentation of the status quo to avoid the ban. Most users have to randomly set limits to understand where the ban limit is. Personally, I use the strategy of buying coins if they go down, not only have you limited the number of possible orders, but also if the price does not reach my orders, I will still get banned, according to another formula. So you manipulate me and make me buy where I don’t want to buy to avoid a ban. Instead of finding a few cents and upgrading equipment in your forbes, you are restricting free trade and scaring away marketers from God. AFTER THIS UPDATE I EXPECT THAT ALL NEXT UPDATES WILL BE SAME - MAKE MY TRADING WORST, LESS PRODUCTIVE AND ALWAYS ON THE EDGE OF BAN.
This is a big problem! I stopped trading 2 days ago. I was afraid to get banned. Impossible rules. All members of our community are shocked by what is happening. Some of them started looking for other exchanges. Stop new crazy rules!
