Order grid

✔ Description on creating a grid of orders. Learn how to set up order type, volume, auto-refresh levels and other parameters for effective trading.

Display in interface

To display grid in standard interface, navigate to 'Settings' and select 'Order Creation' (1).

Enable grid display (2) and click save (3) to apply changes.

When using PRO mode, grid functionality is automatically activated and displayed in the interface.

Creating Order Grid

Select Grid in order panel.

1. Order type

  1. Real or virtual orders: R - real orders. Order sent to the exchange. V - virtual orders. Order is created in terminal and only sent to the exchange when activation conditions are met.

  2. Order types to place on the exchange: L - Limit F - Floating M - Market S - Stop Market T - Trailing

If you create and cancel multiple orders without execution as part of your strategy, we recommend choosing a virtual order type due to Binance's limit on the number of non-executed orders. More information.

You can adjust the number of real orders closest to current price in grid order settings.

In most cases "L" (Limit) order type is used.

Order types

2. All grid orders Volume / Amount

  1. Select Volume (sum) or Amount.

  2. Enter the token volume or amount across all Grid orders.

Please note that volume of each order on the Grid must meet the minimum requirement set by exchange rules.

For example, if you assign the total Grid volume to 100 USDT and spread it evenly over 4 orders, each order's volume will be 25 USDT.

3. Auto-update level

Disabled by default.

If a timeframe (1) is set, the system checks the candle's High/Low price at its close (based on item 2 selection). If the price has increased (for buying) or decreased (for selling), the grid border will be adjusted towards Close or High/Low price, leaving the other border in place:

4. Amount factor

Order grid volume distribution is controlled by this parameter.

For example, if Multiplier = 2, each subsequent order will be 2 times larger than the previous one, starting with the one closest to the trend. And if Multiplier = 0.5, then each successive order will be half the size of the previous one.

The default value is 1, which means that the quantity is evenly distributed among orders.

  1. Order quantity multiplier.

  2. Preview graph displays order quantity distribution.

  3. Position's average price when all grid orders execute is shown. Grid's middle line can be hidden in settings.

Enter a specific volume or amount in the Grid to preview orders with those parameters.

5. Density / Step in %

  1. Select Density or Step in %.

  2. Specify value for selected option. By default is 1.

If 'Density' is selected and set to 1, orders will be evenly distributed in the grid. If set to a value greater than 1, orders will be concentrated closer to the grid´s end, and if less than 1, closer to the beginning.

Density = 1​

Density > 1

Density < 1

When 'Step in %' is selected, Grid orders will be placed with a distance equal to specified percentage.

Last order price in grid is auto-calculated and non-editable.

6. Number of Grid Orders

Minimum 2 orders, maximum 30.

7. First and last Grid price

Customise start and end prices/percentages of order grid.

Change external orders prices on chart using the mouse.

8. Order Auto-cancellation

Set auto-cancellation time in position settings to cancel orders automatically. Grid order execution deactivates auto-cancellation.

To create a Grid, click "Сreate Grid" button.

Edit Order Grid

In order panel

After creating a Grid, a control box for the Grid appears on the right side of "1 order or grid" selection.

1. Edit an existing Order Grid by modifying Grid's order number or volume, and adjusting any other relevant parameters. Click 'Modify Grid #1' after making changes.

2. Create new grid at current position.

3. Cancel selected Grid (Grid #1 in screenshot).

Changing order price on chart

Modify order position on chart by clicking and dragging the order's left side.

Adjusting position order price

  1. Expand a position by clicking on the position line (excluding currency pair name). Clicking currency pair name will open currency pair chart.
