Tuned manages the order sizes for you, so you can run multiple strategies at the same time with different leverage.
Tuned is able to provide this functionality by setting the margin to cross margin, and then placing correct contract sizes to simulate the leverage desired per strategy.
Because we don't currently take into account all of the exchanges fees (ex. maintenance margin) the order size we have to make could differ by a few satoshis. But if the leverage setting is too low, this could cause the strategy to fail.
For this reason, we ask that not only do you set the leverage to cross margin, but also make sure to have a higher leverage value than what you plan to run on Tuned. We always advise to set the leverage to cross and to the nearest full integer to what you are subscribing to. E.g. If you are subscribing to a syndication which requires 1.75x leverage, set it to 2x, if it's 2.5x, set it to 3x and so on.
Why should a user set it to the nearest full integer ?
Most of the syndications on Tuned consist of multiple strategies, where each strategy is running on a different leverage setting, and we display the minimum, maximum and average leverage used by the syndication.
Average leverage of 1.83x
If we look at this syndication, we can see an average leverage of 1.83x. It also shows this syndication consists of strategies with leverages from 1.6x - 2x. Nearest full integer for this would be 2x. So, in this case you should set it to 2x or higher.
Note: Selecting the nearest full integer gives you some leeway, also in case you ever perform a manual trade on the same account.
