The system started pulling data from exchanges the minute you ran it the first time. Read on to learn the details.

Superalgos puts you in control of the market data you work with. To do that, the system uses a sensor bot to pull 1-minute-candles data from exchanges and store it in your machine (it is also possible to pull raw trades data). As the data starts building up, the system uses indicator bots to process the raw data into more elaborate datasets in the form of candles for all time frames, and all sorts of indicators.

The sensor bot fetches data starting from a configurable date. Once it reaches the present time, it continues connecting to the exchange once per minute, pulling data in a live stream. Indicators process data similarly and keep all your data up to date.

Depending on how you intend to use Superalgos, you may want to pull data from as far back as exchanges are willing to give. Such may be the case if you wish to backtest strategies.

On the other hand, if your interest lies in monitoring markets starting from the present time, then you most likely do not need historical data stretching that far in the past.

As mentioned earlier, for your convenience, the system starts pulling data from exchanges as soon as you start it the first time.

The following instructions teach you how to monitor the progress of the data mining operation. At a later time, you will learn how to work with other exchanges.

Start Here

1. Open the design space by pulling the slider to the top of the screen.

2. Go to the network hierarchy.

Click to learn how to find a hierarchy

In brief: To find a hierarchy, access the design space map with a right-click of the mouse, and left-click on your desired destination.

The image illustrates points 1 and 2 below.

1. Access the design space map.

Right click anywhere on the design space to access the design space map.

2. Left-click on your desired destination.

That should take you to the exact point you clicked on the map.

For your information, the design space is organized over a square perimeter around the workspace node, and each hierarchy is located on one of the cardinal directions. Hierarchies feature an ever-present white ring. The ring hints the direction in which a hierarchy is located.

Hierarchy Cardinal Direction Direction Keyboard Shortcut (Windows only)
Sparta Data Mine North Ctrl + Alt + S (S for Sparta)
BRR trading System North East Ctrl + Alt + W (W for Weak Hands Buster)
WHB Trading System East Ctrl + Alt + B (B for Bull Run Rider)
Super Scripts South East Ctrl + Alt + Z (Z for, well…)
Network South Ctrl + Alt + N (N for Network)
Crypto Ecosystem South West Ctrl + Alt + E (E for Ecosystem)
Charting System West Ctrl + Alt + C (C for Charting System)
Masters Data Mine North West Ctrl + Alt + M (M for Masters)

3. Hover the mouse over the network node and click the button on the menu. This action expands the hierarchy.

The image illustrates points 3 to 5, showing the path to find the data mining node, and the indication of how many exchange tasks and task managers are running. In your case, it will be 1 out of 3.

4. Follow the structure of nodes until you find the data mining node. Notice the sign below the node indicating how many exchange tasks are running. In your case, it will be 1 out of 3.

5. Notice the exchange tasks nodes under the data mining node, named after different exchanges: Binance, Bitfinex, and Bittrex.

Each of those exchange tasks nodes control bots that you may run on your machine to process data from each of the exchanges.

6. Expand the Binance exchange tasks node.

Notice the different task managers. Each task manager has a label that starts with the words Masters or Sparta. Those are two data mines shipping with the system. The label continues with the name of the corresponding market.

Also, notice the sign below each task manager indicating how many tasks are running.

The image illustrates point 6 above. The exact number of tasks running on each task manager may vary slightly.

7. Notice the Masters BTC/USDT task manager to the left, the one that is expanded.

See how each task controls either an indicator bot instance or a sensor bot instance.

Also, notice the status information and indication of progress below each bot instance node. The messages include the activity being performed, the date that was last processed, and the percentage of the task that has been completed.

Each of the Masters task managers has a similar configuration, but the indicators and sensors within work in different markets.

The image illustrates point 7 above.
