Q: Why I can not close the trading bots?

A: When closing the trading bots, these open orders would be canceled and the position would be converted to the corresponding coins, then go back to your account, so it needs some time to process.

A: If your spot grid bots run out of the price range, then it would not execute any open orders.

And they may be also closed if it triggers the 'stop loss' or 'take profit'.

A: When you create a trading bot, it is supported to invest both the base coins and quote coins of the trading pair. If you create the bot with the base coin, you may get less base currency back when closing this bot if the price of the base currency raise, that is because the value of the base currency becomes higher, but if you calculate it with the USDT value, it is profitable.
