If you are not going to connect your live broker account to Collective2 for AutoTrading, you do not need an AutoTrade plan. You can simply subscribe to a strategy and receive the signals. You can place these signals in any broker account manually. So: When you are prompted to setup AutoTrade, just click Close or simply ignore and click outside the pop-up box.
If you are going to connect your live broker account to Collective2 for AutoTrading, you need to buy an AutoTrade plan. The AutoTrade plan applies to stocks, options, futures and forex strategies. The plan is based on the number of strategies you want to AutoTrade in your live brokerage account or the C2 PaperTrade account.
You can find out more about the AutoTrade plans by clicking here. Don't forget to move the slider button to View as Investor.
You will be asked to pay for the AutoTrade Plan during the AutoTrade setup wizard if the connection you selected requires an AutoTrade plan.
By default, the AutoTrade plan auto-renews.
