Not only does the 30K have a more attractive profit objective, but also comparatively a more favorable drawdown allowance.

For the 20 day combines:

$30K -- 5% drawdown, 6.7% profit objective
$50K -- 4% drawdown, 10% profit objective
$100K -- 3% drawdown, 10% profit objective
$150K -- 3% drawdown, 10.7% profit objective

As the account size grows, the drawdown requirement tightens, and the profit objective becomes higher. I suspect this is to encourage traders to go for the 30K. It is more reachable by most small traders, because they are more used to trading this level of money. Said another way, "if you think you are good enough to swing $150K then you have to really prove it." I think it is a good move on their part.
