Common Issues

It says I don't have any capital to invest (Max: $0)?

Your portfolio's capital can be allocated however you choose but you cannot allocate more than you currently have free. If you don't have capital to invest in a new strategy you have a few options:
  • You can deposit more money (live) or reset your account (practice).
  • You can rebalance your portfolio to free up capital currently used by other strategies. Learn how to rebalance here.
