To improve our users' trading experience, we are rolling out a new trading feature: Grid Trading.
Grid trading is a technique in which a trader enters a position not in one go but in a sequence of orders. Usually these are entered as "stop" or "limit" orders around the current price level. Grid trading is similar to pyramiding where the position is built on when and if the trend moves in the right direction. This creates a fishing net-like grid of orders for realising profits in fluctuating markets.
* Please note that if the price breakouts of current levels that you have set your grid parameters around, then losses might be experienced.
Users can also enable our AI to automatically set the grid parameters (AI grid) with the values that are expected to produce the highest returns.
We'd like to celebrate our new trading feature by hosting our first Grid Trading Contest to reward our community.

Introduction to Gate.io's Grid Trading
Grid trading is an innovative trading strategy that reaps profits in fluctuating markets. A strategy aiming to capitalize on price volatility by placing buy and sell orders around the same price levels at set intervals if certain conditions are met.
Gate.io's Grid trading can be performed manually or automatically via our AI.
1. 'Smart Grid' can automatically calculate the highest-yielding ROI grid parameters and their values, including upper-limit price, lower-limit price, number of grids, by back-testing with the latest weekly data. Users are only required to choose the investment amount and create their Smart Grid.
2.'Configure Grid Manually' allows users to set their own grid parameters such as upper-limit price, lower-limit price, number of grids, investment amount and the buy/sell quantity of each grid to create the grid.
Users can also click "Fill The Form On The Right Side". All the values set by Smart Grid will be automatically filled in the 'Configure Grid Manually' section and afterwards users are able to edit them.
