Autotrading scaling question

If a trading system uses max 6 contracts for a total of 20k $ margin maximum allowed (even if it has a buy power of 100k $), if i scale the system down to my 30k $ it scales the number of contracts right?

If i want to trade up to 6 contracts do i have to tell autotrading that i have money that i donโ€™t really have? :slight_smile:

Thx :wink:

Hi Luca,

Yes to both questions.


Does autotrading rounds to upper integer number of contracts?

If yes then i have to set an amount of trading money a bit less than the Buy Power of the trading system, right?

No, it rounds down.
