Bots have safeguards and limits that alert you when an automation encounters an error.
The “Not enough capital” error occurs when there is not enough capital for a bot to enter a new position. The error 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.
You can access error messages in the bot log.
Automations that encountered an error are displayed with a red circle with an explanation of why the bot discontinued the automation. The date and time the automation failed are also listed.
You can select the error to view more details.
The Position Statement also lists all capital allocation errors.
Errors occupy an open position slot in the bot and count toward your position limits.
You must manually remove the canceled position to make room for additional positions in your bot.
However, an error will continue to appear if you do not fix the capital allocation. You must clear the position to allow new trading opportunities.
You will always receive a notification for any bot errors. Select the bell in the top right corner to view your notifications.
The bot dashboard also lists automation errors in the “Activity” section.
You can make changes to the bot’s capital allocation limits in the bot’s global settings.
