How to or is it possible to adjust STARTING CAPITAL and CURRENT EQUITY?

Sponge, it is not possible at this time for system authors to ever change starting capital and current equity. It's great if you have a strategy written and results uploaded so from our standpoint you'll if you're a subscriber have to unsubscribe then resubscribe with the different amounts and that way for system authors like myself we can see your result based on initial amount invested, so, there's two questions you're asking, one is if you're a system author and the answer is no you cannot change either one, but a subscriber may unsubscribe, then resubscribe with the change in the level desired.

Does that make sesnse?

Good Pairs Trading.

Happy Trading!

BWO's correct. We'll be looking at a way to make an adjustment, probably first from a subscriber perspective.

From an author standpoint, collective2 has a rescaling option to keep the strategy size similar to that of the recommended capital. Could something similar be considered here?

Sure, we can look at that too. Probably it should only be allowed when equity reaches some multiple of the original starting capital - like 2 or 3 times. What do you think?

Yes allowing strategy to be rescaled after equity reaches 2 or 3 times greater than starting capital would be a nice add-on. Also, adding a statistic showing rescale dates and prior amount before rescaling would provide full transparency to current and future subscribers.

I am in 100% agreement. It is practical and makes sense for subscribers to a system, as well system publishers.
