The Suggested Minimum Capital is C2's estimate of the minimum amount of capital to follow a strategy, assuming you use the smallest reasonable AutoTrade Scaling % for the strategy.
The Suggested Minimum Capital is not the same as the Model Account Starting Equity.
The starting equity is the amount of capital that a Trade Leader started his strategy with. This is different than the "suggested minimum capital to trade.”
The numbers mean different things.
A Trade Leader can decide how much to start his strategy with.
C2 suggests what the minimum “starting unit” size is. They are different.
Investors do not have to have the Suggested Minimum Capital in their broker account to follow any strategy.
