Spot Grid Trading
Normal grid: buy low and sell high to earn more on the stablecoin. It works best in a volatile
market where prices are rising.

market where prices are dropping, allowing traders to earn more from arbitrage.
Sell at termination: when the normal grid trading strategy is terminated, base currency
bought by the strategy will be sold to the stablecoin.
Buy at termination: when the reverse grid trading strategy is terminated, stablecoin bought
by the strategy will be sold to the base currency.
Futures Grid Trading
Long grid: enter long positions upon creation and take profits by closing long positions when the price rises and open long positions when the price dip. It is suitable for volatile market conditions where prices are rising.

when the price dips and open short positions when the price rises. It is suitable for volatile
market conditions where prices are dropping.

and long positions will be calculated separately. When liquidated, only the margin of the
particular position will be lost. If the positions are closed by the user, losses and profits of
each short position and long position will be credited into the margin of corresponding
Close at termination: when the grid strategy is terminated, the corresponding futures position will be closed.

When the price drops to the lower limit of the grid, a buy order is executed. When the price rises above the upper limit of a grid, a sell order is executed instead.
