What is Maximum Exposure?

26 Nov 2018

Maximum Exposure is a risk management tool that we have set in place to promote responsible trading and mitigate the risks of trading. It represents the maximum amount that the system is allowed to invest for you on a single strategy at any given point in time.

As a strategy might have multiple open trades simultaneously, it is important to define the threshold. In case, Maximum Exposure is hit, the system will stop copying the trades until the outstanding positions are closed and the defined limits are no longer exceeded.

Setting Maximum Exposure is mandatory for each strategy you copy and we have pre-set for you recommended values. Yet, you can alter those at any time to ensure trades are executed, yet your risked capital is reasonable.
