2. In the pop-up window, review the closing details, including position size, DCA price, current market price, and approximate profit/loss for the current cycle. When you are ready to proceed, click [Confirm] to close the position.

Once you initiate the closing process, the following steps will occur:

  1. Any outstanding DCA and Take Profit orders will be canceled.
  2. A market order will be placed for the full volume of the position, which will be filled at the current market price.
  3. The system will lock in the final PNL position and update the bot's total PNL. In the "Bot orders" window, the market order will be marked as a "Manual close" status.
  4. The bot will launch a new cycle based on its initial configuration, starting with a fresh set of DCA orders.

By using the "Close position by market" feature, you can close a DCA bot position quickly and easily, without needing to cancel and restart your bot.


Please note that if your bot is trading on a highly volatile market, the final buy or sell price may differ from the one displayed in the preview window. This is because the market price can fluctuate significantly between the moment you confirm the position closing and the actual order execution on the exchange. As a result, the actual execution price may be higher or lower than the one displayed in the preview window.
