The Suggested Minimum Capital is a number, based on software analysis of a Trade Leader's trades and trading style, that estimates the minimum amount of capital to follow a strategy assuming Investors use the smallest reasonable AutoTrade Scaling % for the strategy.
It is not the initial equity that Trade Leaders entered.
It is calculated by looking at what margin was required to trade at a minimum autotrade scaling factor (based on past trade history) which does not result in account oscillation (i.e. no rounding, no position truncation). In addition, a buffer is added based on historical drawdown and volatility.
Trade Leaders cannot manually set Suggested Minimum Capital.
