Automated trading (trading bot) is something that many traders regularly use in the forex market. And after the cryptocurrency market was developed, exchanges using trading coin bots were quickly chosen by traders. Binance is one of several cryptocurrency exchanges that allow the use of trading bots. The following article teaches how to use the trading bot on Binance and some notes.
What Is Binance Trading Bot?
According to a default strategy, a trading bot is a software application or program designed to automatically buy/sell on an exchange on behalf of a trader.
Using a trading bot makes trading faster, more disciplined and saves more time for users.
Trading Bot on Binance uses a trading bot created via a programming language and installed on a Binance account via API (Application Program Interface) keys. This feature requires users to have skills in using Python code generators or using bots created by 3rd parties.
In addition, Binance also has a Spot Gid feature that easily supports automated trading. Spot Gid is a tool that supports an automated trading strategy with a preset time and a predefined price range. The Spot Grid feature helps users profit from price movements when the market is volatile or sideways.
How does the binance trading bot work?
The trading bot connects to the cryptocurrency exchange and automatically opens trading orders based on the presets. Users of the trading bot on the Binance exchange must authorize their account via an API key. Trading robots work in three stages: signal generation, risk allocation and trade execution.
Signal generation: After connecting the trading bot on Binance, the signal generator makes predictions and identifies the best trading opportunities based on market data, technical analysis and the parameters required in the trading bot. Translate.
Risk allocation: This feature of the trading bot allocates risk according to preset rules. Like the allocation of trading capital, these rules determine the percentage of activity that the trading bot can make trades.
Trade execution: After the signal generator finds a trading opportunity and determines the risk allocation ratio, the bot executes a buy or sell order. The bot does operations by sending a request through the API key associated with the Binance account and the transaction is executed.
How to use Spot Grid on Binance
To trade automatically through Spot Grid, you need to log in to your Binance account. If you have not opened an account, register an account by following the link below:
On the toolbar, click the Trade tab and select Strategy Trading.
Click Next to see detailed welcome instructions when you access the Bot Grid feature for the first time and select Start Trading.

In manual mode, there are two modes Arithmetic and Geometric.
- In arithmetic mode, each grid has an equal spread.
- In Geometric mode, each grid has a rate equal to the price difference.

- Lower price: the lower limit price in the grid. Trade is not executed when the market price is below the lower price level.
- Higher price: the upper limit price in the grid. Trade is not executed when the market price is above the higher price level.
- Grid: Divide the upper limit and lower limit price ranges into different grids.
- Invested currency: The user chooses to invest in a cryptocurrency or a cryptocurrency pair.
