# Position size

## Question

Hello

I use this formula to determine contract size in my automated system at US TECH100.

It works perfectly in backtesting but I'm not sure if it will work live. I'm concerned if it is possible to use several decimals in an automated system. Anyone who knows?

STARTINGCAPITAL = 10000 //10k USD
SIZE = 1 / STARTINGCAPITAL //divide your initial contract size by startingcapital
CAPITAL = STARTINGCAPITAL + STRATEGYPROFIT //current capital
K = CAPITAL * SIZE //calculate position size
positionsize=K

if buysignal and not shortonmarket then
buy positionsize contract at market

• Now that the airdrop trend has calmed down, I’ve been exploring liquidity mining opportunities in DeFi. One of my main challenges in this space has been liquidity management. Engaging in DeFi—whether through trading or investing—takes significant time and effort with no guaranteed returns.   Although I'm still new to this, I’ve been looking into Quantlytica. Their aim is to revolutionize DeFi by breaking liquidity barriers, making it more accessible to everyone, regardless of expertise. Their native token, QTLY, is set to debut on Bitget spot soon, generating strong sentiment. I’m curious if any DeFi enthusiasts have leveraged their ecosystem and would appreciate your reviews.
