I am not sure how C2 calculates the Suggested Minimum Capital, but for my strategy (and a number of others) it seems significantly overstated (in my case by 2x).
For instance, in my strategy (LongShortPortfolio) I am trading 2-4 stocks long at any one time, with around $50k capital (eg., $12.5k per stock x 4 stocks). This can be scaled down by any subscriber who wishes to trade smaller amounts. In addition, I hedge the entire position using Russell 2000 micro futures (M2K), which trade at $5/point (alternative instruments are IWM, SH, etc). So, for instance if I am long $50k stocks, and short 6 contracts of M2K (around $50k value), the typical margin on this would be 1:2 for the stocks ($25k), plus the margin on the futures, which according to IB sits at around $6k, so all told, even if scaled 100%, the margin required on the strategy would be approx $30k.
C2 is quoting the Suggested Minimum Capital at $60k. Granted I am sure it is not a perfect science, but this seems way off the mark. The concern is, with so many strategies in the grid (and leaderboard), when potential subs are looking for a decent strategy, they may filter out the ones with a higher sugg-cap requirements, without knowing this key detail.
C2 needs to work on the data to get it closer to reality, which is why I bring this up in good faith. Would appreciate any feedback from the team, or any strategy-manager who is exp similar issues.
