C2 Constraints settings.
I don't understand everything so I am asking here in forum if someone could please help. Thank you.
1.No single position may take more than % of system capital.
Is there any formula how much % is used with C2 leverage?
(For example if I risk 0,5% using 10pip stop-loss this would be max. system capital used with single position)
1.1. If a position from MT4 is larger than constraint setting, will C2 open proper position size or will not open it at all?
2. Sum of all open positions may take no more than % of system capital
If there is a formula for a single position, this is sum of all open positions. Correct?
2.1. Will C2 block last position automaticlly if it would violate constraints?
2.2. Option to set max.number of all open positions would be great. (in a combination with first constraint)
3.Trades must have a stop loss capping loss at this % of system equity (C2 will create one if you don't)
Is this for a single position? Or max.drawdown in total?
Thank you for your help.

C2 Constraints settings.
I don't understand everything so I am asking here in forum if someone could please help. Thank you....
So where we are?
Answers after testing.
Constraint setting for a single position is not working. Have opened many positions but setting of no more than x% of system capital for one position is ignored completly. Constraints starts to work with second and third option.
1. Don't know formula yet.
1.1. C2 Constraints can adjust and open proper position size . If position violates constraints too much it won't open it at all (note:only 'Sum of all open positions may take no more than % of system capital' is working at the moment)
2.Here C2 Constraints starts to work. No more than x% of system capital will be open..Very good.
2.2 Yes this option would be great also
3. Stop-loss on a single position. Very good. (Here must be careful. If you scail in sometimes positions are viewd as seperate positions and every position has its own stop-loss, so risk % can be larger. Most of the time it is viewed as a single position and stop-loss is moved closer to entry price with every new open position, still risking the same %)

What is the C2 Score?
Collective2 rates every trading advisor in its database and assigns a score between 100 and 1000.
In general, a rating above 500 is good. A rating above 700 is excellent.
Collective2 Ratings are recalculated daily based on the entire performance history in our database. The exact formula we use is proprietary, but there are several key variables that go into the Collective2 Rating. One of the most important factors is the length of time we have been able to observe the performance of the trader. Another key factor is the amount by which the trader over-performs or under-performs the S&P 500 index. Finally, the choppiness of the trader's results is taken into account. Certainly a more consistent trader will be rated more highly than a trader with erratic results.
