Analyzing bot data

After performing backtests, or after running the bot for some time, it will be interesting to analyze the results your bot generated.

A good way for this is using Jupyter (notebook or lab) - which provides an interactive environment to analyze the data.

The following helpers will help you loading the data into Pandas DataFrames, and may also give you some starting points in analyzing the results.


To analyze your backtest results, you can export the trades. You can then load the trades to perform further analysis.

Freqtrade provides the load_backtest_data() helper function to easily load the backtest results, which takes the path to the the backtest-results file as parameter.

from import load_backtest_data
df = load_backtest_data("user_data/backtest-result.json")

# Show value-counts per pair

This will allow you to drill deeper into your backtest results, and perform analysis which otherwise would make the regular backtest-output very difficult to digest due to information overload.

Live data

To analyze the trades your bot generated, you can load them to a DataFrame as follows:

from import load_trades_from_db

df = load_trades_from_db("sqlite:///tradesv3.sqlite")
