Secure your gains with the Take Profit feature

In this article, you will learn what the Take Profit in a trading bot is and how to configure it in the best way.

Take Profit explained

The Take Profit is an order designed to manage your risks. When the specified Take Profit condition is met, the system stops the bot and sells all the base currency used in open orders (GRID Bot) or buys it back (BTD Bot):

Once the Total PNL of the active bot reaches a specified profit percentage that you set in a Take Profit parameter, the bot stops trading by selling all of the base currency used in open orders or buying it back.

Example #1: You have an active GRID bot trading on ETH/BTC, and you set your Take profit at 15%. As soon as the Total PNL (In BTC) becomes +15%, the bot will close all orders, sell the remaining ETH, and will be moved to the History tab.

Example #2: You have an active BTD bot trading on ETH/USDT, and you set the Take profit at 15%. As soon as the Total PNL (In ETH) becomes +15%, the bot will close all orders, buy back ETH using all USDT from the open orders, and then will be moved to the History tab.

The Take Profit is the ultimate solution to lock in returns whenever you need it. Define your investment goal and set the Take Profit in accordance with it.
