# Why do I need a logarithmic distribution of grid order prices?

This setting is found in the advanced bot settings. The grid of orders is typically calculated so that all the order prices in it are located linearly (at the same distance from each other) along with the whole overlap of the price change. With little volatility, the first, smallest, orders in the grid will most often be executed. In order to attract more deposits to trade with little volatility, a logarithmic price distribution can be used to increase the density of the orders near the current price and reduce the density of the orders at a distance from the current price. The density of orders can be adjusted for different situations in different ways using a logarithmic coefficient to increase or decrease it.
The values of the logarithmic coefficient > 1 will increase the density of the orders near the current price (thus involving more deposit in trade at a low volatility, which will increase the profit, but also increase the risk).
The values of the logarithmic coefficient < 1 will increase the density of the orders at a distance from the current price near the last grid order (this will greatly reduce the risks of trading, but the profit will also be smaller).
Use the logarithmic price distribution to always check what the grid of orders is. By clicking on the grid of orders, you can see the calculated prices and volumes of grid orders.
