can you please explain it;

it is about money management ?

every one should take it Consider to his strategy , or there is another reason ?

in Automated Trading Championship ; the control about margin level & free margin in daily trade or end of week  ( like a live trade ) ; does not effect?

Yes, this is about money management. To exclude EAs that rely only on their luck. Imagine an EA that made 100k and opens a position of 100 lots, for example. Do you find it adequate?

Limitations make this competition closer to real trade conditions.

To be honest, I didn't quite understand this question about the margin levels. On the championship, the Stop Out level is fixed, it doesn't change on weekends.
