Currently, you can’t see that in the app. We encourage everyone to discuss and share the setting in our Telegram group or Facebook group. The wisdom of the masses is inexhaustible.
### 3. Which pair and what range should I choose for the bot?
To be honest, there's no formula for the best pair and range. This depends on your trading experience. **In General, we'll recommend you to tune the profit per grid between 0.5~2%.**
The trick is to choose a pair with good depth and make the range wider. Grid trading bot is for long-term strategy.
### 4. How does the number of grid affect my profit?
* When you have more grids in a limited range, you’ll have higher possibility to executed your orders but less profit per grid.

After you decide to cancel the bot, it’ll cancel all the grid orders and stop running immediately. Your funds will remain with the same allocation at the moment it stop running.
