1. What Is Futures Grid (Automated Trading)?
Grid trading is a type of quantitative trading strategy. The futures grid helps investors rake in profits like a fishing net by presetting the price range for each grid and dividing the funds into multiple portions.The grid bot automates buying low and selling high when the market price reaches the preset prices. Each buying-selling constitutes an arbitrage process.
As long as the market fluctuates up or down, there will be profits.

3. Tips on Futures Grid
Setting key parameters of the grid will have a direct impact on your profits. Here is to share some tips on Futures Grid trading:
1. Setting Price Range
The red box indicates the ideal price range of the grid, which lies between the resistance and support level.
Common ways to decide the upper and lower limits of the price range:
A. Refer to momentum indicators. For example, use the upper and lower Bollinger Band of the candlestick chart of the last 4 hours or of the day as the grid limits.
B. Set according to the candlestick chart pattern. For example, refer to the 4-hour candlestick chart and set the upper and lower limits according to the most frequent highs and lows.
2. Setting Grid Number
The grid number decides the grid density.
With a constant total investment, the denser the grids, the more they can capture small swings in the market, but, at the same time, the smaller the average fund per grid.
Setting a proper number of grids needs to take into account both the fund per grid and the grid density.
Usually, investors can refer to the Average True Range (ATR) which measures volatility. If you want your grid to trade every 15 minutes, refer to the 15-minute candlestick pattern to determine the ATR.
Grid number = (Price H - Price L) / ATR (20) of 15-minute candlestick pattern
3. Other Tips: Backtesting and Stop-Loss
1) Use the backtesting features wisely by testing the performance of the parameters that you set. However, be aware that the historical data is for reference only.
2) Add a safety belt to your grid by setting stop loss.
