Trigger price: When the market price rises above or falls below the trigger price, the grid orders will be triggered.

Stop-loss price: It denotes the lowest price at which the base currency can be sold. When the base currency’s market price falls below the Stop-loss Price, the system will automatically sell the currency to stop losses.

Take-profit price: When the market price reaches the set take-profit price, the system will automatically stop trading and settle for you to maintain your profit guarantee.

Sell BTC upon termination (ticked): When you terminate a Spot Grid trade, the system will automatically settle the trade based on the currency you hold, such as Bitcoin. If this box is unchecked, you will continue to hold this currency after Spot Grid trading has ended.
