Maximum Deposit Loading

Different Expert Advisors use different trading ways. Some use only a tenth of the balance to open positions, others use the whole available amount. The less available funds are involved in open positions, the lower is the risk for a trading account. Although, it also means less potential profit.

The Expert Advisors that use a smaller part of the account balance for trading risk less. The onces that open positions with large lots risk more. Of course, in the Championship there are more Expert Advisors of the second type, because without high risks it is hard to win, if the criterion is the maximum balance at the end of the competition.

Therefore, we introduce a value of the level of deposit used. Level of deposit used is the maximum ratio of funds involved in open positions and the account equity.
