10) Using any reasonable maintenance balance

A maintenance balance is nothing more than a stop loss based on the liquidation value of your account, example,

$141,664 lowest permissible start balance for auto-trade
$175,000 Your starting balance
-$62,570 Highest monthly high to lowest monthly low prior to recovery

-$80,164 Highest daily high high to lowest daily low prior to recovery
-$90,000 Risk tolerance
$85,000 Maintenance balance

Should the account’s balance drop below $85,000 including unrealized profit or loss all positions would be liquidated on or before the next close.
