The API creation method introduced here is an API creation method that can be used permanently.
You can create an API with a three-month time limit by selecting and creating an API transaction.

Running the strategy
Click All strategies to display a list of strategies.
Click on the strategy you care about.
Once you have decided on the strategy you want to run, click “Register” to register.
The registered strategy is displayed in Registered. Make sure you are registered.
Before launching a strategy, set the number of lots from the screen of the strategy you want to launch.
Click “Trade Settings” in the red frame of the image to set the number of lots.
Leverage is set from the Bybit screen. When you move the cursor to the trade, a pull-down menu will be displayed, so select the inverse indefinite / currency pair.
Please set the leverage from the order panel on the upper right.
Cross (Recommended): All of your account balance will be automatically replenished as a margin for your position to avoid clearing. Cross margin is the default setting. If the position is set without leverage, the cross margin will be used automatically. Therefore, the possibility of clearing is less than when using the separation margin. If cleared, the trader will lose all of his balance.
Separation: The required initial margin has been separated from your account balance. Margins added after that will not be transferred from your account balance to your position. Separation margins help minimize clearing losses, as the maximum amount lost by clearing is the initial margin for that position. For highly leveraged positions, you can quickly profit from market volatility. Conversely, if the market is not moving as expected, it is more likely to be liquidated.
After setting the lot number and leverage from each screen, open the Registered screen and click Start for the strategy you want to launch. A pop-up screen will appear, click OK to launch the strategy.
【Points to note when running the strategy】
Meanings of “○”, “×” and “Arrow” displayed on the strategy chart
〇：Entry ×：Settlement ⇧：Buy (buy / long) ⇩：Sell (sell / short)
It is recommended to activate the strategy when the latest arrow on the far right of the chart is x. No manual position adjustment is required after activation.
When the latest arrow on the far right of the chart is 〇, it means that the strategy already has a position. If you activate the strategy at that time, you will need to manually order the same position as the chart.
If you see Green Running, your strategy is running. If you want to stop the strategy, click Stop. Since it is just a stop of the strategy, the position remains in Bybit.
The basic operation is almost the same as the PC version. The specifications are friendly to beginners of virtual currency, so you can use it smoothly.
