Bots have safeguards and limits that alert you when an automation encounters a warning.
The “Not enough capital” warning occurs when there is not enough capital for a bot to enter a new position. The warning also happens if you do not have enough net liquid or available capital to fulfill the capital requirements of a new position.
The bot will not enter a new position until another position is closed --manually or through an automation-- and capital becomes available in the portfolio.
A bot has placed a trade and found there were not sufficient funds available to cover the position. Although there may be enough capital allocated to the bot for a trade, some of that capital may already be in use for other opened trades. See the "Capital" section of the bot's "Dashboard" for a description of currently available funds.
How can I prevent this warning from occurring?
In your decision tree you can add a check for the bots capital using "bot has enough available capital." This will check to see if the bot has enough capital available before it attempts to open the position, and will avoid throwing a warning if there are not enough funds to cover the new position.
Where can I change my allocated capital for a bot?
You can change a bot’s capital allocation under its "Settings", found in the drop-down gear menu next to its On/Off switch. This icon is in the upper-right area on the bot's page.
What is the minimal amount of capital I can assign to a bot?
Bots require a minimum capital allocation of $500.
