I did not find the article about it (so we can only think about the meaning of it).
But I am thinking that it is max deposit of signal provider which were loaded during the trading.

Do you know about "drawdown based on floating equity open trades?"
So, I think - it is similar or same.

and I think - it is correlated with this one - 


Because the subscriber can see about "max deposit load" for signal provider to estimate his deposit load during the subscribing to the signal.

I think - it is same "use no more than ...% of deposit" which is having by the signal provider.
I mean - if you are going to subscribe to his signal so it may be good to know about his "use no more than ...% of deposit" so you can see this "use no more than ...% of deposit".

------------------------

But I did nt find any source (article or any) to read about it, so it is just my thinking only.

It means that the signal provider deposited more money to the account, and this max deposit load is calculated based on initial deposit.

Example:

  • Signal provider started to trade with 300 dollars. He has subscribers.
  • Signal provider is losing money, and to save his account - he deposited 1000 dollars more. And his subscribers were losing oney (because they were not deposited to their accounts, and he is winning because he deposited).
  • And max deposit load is calculated based on initial 300 dollars.

Its the percentage of the amount used for margin over equity.

The larger the value the larger the risk taken by the signal.
