Guidelines for Spot Grid Trading
Updated at:219 days 7 hours ago

1. What is Spot Grid?

Spot grid is a market trading strategy based on the idea of buying low and selling high, which is suitable for a volatile market of digital currency. By the means of setting the price range, the number of grids, and others, the funds are systematically divided into a number of equal parts, then the buy orders will be placed when the price drops, and sell orders will be placed when the price climbs, acquiring grid profits constantly through buying low and selling high in the oscillating market.

2 .When Should I Choose Spot Grid Trading?

When there is an oscillation market of the range, it is tim e to choose the spot grid trading, which involves repeatedly buying low and selling high within the range to earn grid profits.

3. Which Trading Pairs are Suitable for Spot Grid Trading?

If you are green hands, we recommend you to choose BTC/USDT, ETH/USDT and other mainstream trading pairs with good liquidity. If you have a better understanding of spot grid trading, you can try other high volatility trading pairs to earn high grid profits.

4. Can I Stop Loss on Spot Grid Trading?

Yes. You can set the Stop Price in the parameters to maintain the safety of your assets. When the price of the underlying transaction is below the Stop Price, the quantitative product will automatically sell the underlying transaction to stop losses.

5. Will the Trading Fee Exceed the Grid Profit?

No. Spot grid trading ensures that orders will only be placed if the grid profit is greater than the trading fee, so there will be no situation where the trading fee exceeds the grid profit.

6. Should I Choose "Smart Grid" or "Configure Grid Manually " For Spot Grid Trading?

If you are green hands, we recommend you to choose Smart Grid.
Based on the last 7 days of historical data, Smart Grid will backtest and then automatically calculate the parameters of the grid with the highest yield. These parameters include Lower Limit Price, Upper Limit Price, and Grid Quantity. The user only needs to choose the percentage of the investment amount (the investment amount must be greater than or equal to the minimum investment amount).

If you are experienced in spot grid trading, you can use the "Configure Grid Manually" feature to configure the parameters according to your needs.

Lower Limit Price: namely the lowest buying price, the latest market price below which no buy will be made, and no selling can be executed at the lower limit price.

Upper Limit Price: namely the highest selling price, the latest market price above which no selling will be made and no buying is allowed at the upper price.

Number of grids: Quantity of grids for executing trades. (Limitation: 2-200)

Arithmetic: The price interval of each grid is the same. The calculation method:
(Upper limit price-Lower limit price) / (Number of grids-1)

Geometric: The price spacing of each grid is equal in proportion, and the calculation method is as follows:

Base Currency Buy/Sell Qty Per Grid: Number of selected coins for buy/sell per grid.

Quantity Increment: the quantity increment is off by default, when it is on, you can choose to increase the number of trades per grid by quantity or proportionally, as shown below:

(Original Image)

If the base currency buy/sell qty per grid=1 and coins(BTC) of increment per grid=2. Then in the first grid, it will buy/sell 1 BTC, and in the second grid, it will buy/sell 3 BTC(1+2). There will then be 5 BTC(1+2+2) for selling/buying in the third grid, and so on.

Stop-loss price: It must be below the lower limit price. Stop-loss will be triggered if the latest price breaks below the stop-loss price.

Take-profit price: It must be higher than the upper limit price. Take-profit will be triggered when the latest price breaks the take-profit price.

Trigger price of the strategy: The grid strategy will only run when the latest price is no greater than the trigger price. The trigger price should be below the latest price and should be within the range of the lowest price and highest price.

Termination Conditions(Optional)

Sell the Coins You Already Have When It Terminates: Once enabled, the strategy will sell the coins you already have at market price (exchanged for USDT) when the strategy terminates.

HODL Mode: Once enabled, earnings from this grid strategy will be exchanged for the coin you choose in real-time.
