Some questions on the property names of C2 Explorer


Hi. First timer here. Currently I am exploring the data on C2 Explorer, and questions arise for some of the properties in the trading systems and statistics tables:

  1. Margin Used: How is the margin used calculated? Is it the margin currently in use, or the sum of the margin used by all historical trades?

  2. Trade Freq: How does this work? The values seem to be quite huge for trading frequency.

  3. numsigs_all/numsigs_forex/numsigs_stock: It seems like these are the number of trades by asset class, but the numbers do not tally with numtrades. Would these fields mean something else?

  4. totalcomm: Is this the total commission paid by the trading systems to their brokers?

Have been Googling for to look for any hints, but to no avail. Could someone shed some light? Thanks.
