Liquidity for Fund Selection

Can anyone give me a ballpark figure of what dollar volume value would typically be considered liquid vs illiquid as it pertains to selection for the fund?

Hi Mike,

We haven't set global portfolio liquidity limits at this point. I think a reasonable rule of thumb to start would be to limit algos holding positions that are under ~10% of the daily dollar volume for a single stock. So to back that out to a stock level liquidity cap you could just look at your algo's maximum possible allocation per stock and multiply that by a few different possible allocation sizes (e.g. $100k portfolio,$500k, $1mm,$5mm) and get a sense of whether any of the names in your universe would put you close to that level of concentration.
