Exchange being down should not prevent startup


#1

From github:

First - Thanks for a great program :slight_smile:
A suggestion - I’ve just upgraded to latest version with no issues however I noticed that on startup it checked for connectivity to exchanges. I’m currently using Poloniex and Binance. Since Binance is currently down , of course it could not connect.

PTF then shutdown. Exchanges are not always going to be available - Surely it would be better to just prevent writing/updating of files for the unavailable exchanges (or even just highlight the lack of connectivity) - rather than shutting down and therefore not continuing to work with the exchanges that it can connect to?

Hopefully that makes sense.

Thanks again for all the teams hard work … Mark
