trading pair - Set parameters - Click “Create” as shown below
Long/Short: If the market is forecast to rise, you can choose to go long, otherwise you can choose to go short.
Price range: The
lower limit price refers to the lowest buying price for executing grid
transactions. If it is lower than this price, no further buying is
allowed. In contrast, the upper limit price is the highest selling price
for executing grid transactions. If it is higher than this price, no
more selling is allowed.
Leverage Ratio: You
can devote a small amount of funds and gain more profit by increasing
the leverage, but the risk of liquidation will also increase.

number of grids is basically the number of orders. Under the same price
range, the more orders there are, the more grids there will be, and
the more frequently you can buy low and sell high. (limited grids: 2 to
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: In the future grids, the base currency buy/sell qty per grid=1
Contracts increasing: 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
If the base currency buy/sell qty per grid=1 and contracts of increment
per grid=2: Then in the first grid, it will buy/sell 1 contract, and in
the second grid it will buy/sell 3 contracts(1+2). There will then be 5
contracts(1+2+2) for selling/buying in the third grid, and so on.
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.
Auto stop-loss ratio: When your position is losing value and the % difference between average
entry price and mark price is larger than the stop-loss ratio, the
position will be closed at the market price and the strategy terminates.
