When trading moves from normal spotGrid trading to a phase of continuous trading:
– no extra base currency gets invested compared to the last spotGrid DCA order
– the aim is to make small gains in base currency, but also work on slowly lowering the break even price of the overall position (which will not always work, but often does)
When a continuous trading phase ends by reaching the rate for the next DCA order, this can be either at a lower or a higher rate than the last DCA order. Because of this, it is probably a good idea to use a slightly lower trading limit than you normally would with spotGrid, and to expect situations where a bit more DCA trades happen in the same price range then normal spotGrid would fire.
Don’t even try running this on futures: it will lose money because futures positions have a single avg entry price used to calculate PNL for each individual order.
