What should I do if I'm unsatisfied with the pre-set parameters?

You can tweak the respective fields to change things like how often your entries are triggered and the margins for take-profit targets, as per the martingale strategy.

Once you're finished, confirm your order by inputting the amount that you're comfortable trading using the bot.

How does OKX's AI strategy adapt to my risk profile and trading preferences?

OKX's unique AI strategy will present you with preset parameters determined by the risk profile you've selected. These parameters are tailored to individuals with varying risk appetites and will impact the frequency of trades made.
