"minimum capital deployed" C2Star


I’m not quite grasping this.

You’re supposed to deploy a minimum of 1% of your capital on a rolling 60 day basis. What does that mean? The examples given are of no help at all (eg, one position held open for one hour each day would consume 24% of available capital).

On a $40k account, that’s $400 deployed continuously, but how would that translate to, say, a futures account, where the margin is $6000 or so? Is one futures trade that’s open for five minutes tying up 15% of available capital until settlement (eg, the entire session)?

Could we have some real-world examples?
