# Kill Switch¶

Automatically stops the bot when it reaches a certain performance threshold, which can be either positive or negative. This feature uses the same performance calculation methodology as the history command.

You will be prompted to configure kill switch during the first setup.

 1 2 Would you like to enable the kill switch? (Yes/No) >>> At what profit/loss rate would you like the bot to stop? (e.g. -0.05 equals 5 percent loss) >>> 

You can always reconfigure this feature in two ways:

1. Editing conf_global.yml file using a text editor.
2. Inside Hummingbot enter: config kill_switch_enabled and/or config kill_switch_rate.
