Sergey Golubev:

You can contact with the signal provider asking for his support with the situation.

----------------

Some tips - 

  • Do not subscribe to the signal provider who is losing money.
  • If you subscribe to the signal similar to scalping - use same broker (same with the signal provider) and MQL5 VPS for example.
  • There is one rule which some people follows: subscribe to signal provider you know in person or by activity on the forum.
  • Do not subscribe to the signal with already opened positions (wait when the positions will be closed for provider, or choose the other signal) - "It is not advisable to begin copying a signal with open positions - wait for the signal to close all positions and then synchronize with it" - post #5.

Hi Sergey, many thanks for these advice.

Hi Marsel,

I copied the diagram from your given link in earlier post; cud u menion why green circled portions have been avoided from the growth calculation?


also can we do it like: {(current equity - all deposit + all withdrawal)/initial balance} * 100%? i believe, this one is much more precise for growth calculation..

also see this line "Fig.4 shows that January growth was 1176%. This is an indication of intense deposit boosting. But trading was moderate in February/March. It's advisable to avoid signals which use boosting and consider signals with smooth growth of profit." in the following link: https://www.mql5.com/en/articles/1838 it seems here deposit is boosting the growth.

but here it is mentioned  How is the Growth in Signals Calculated? growth overlooks deposit or withdrawal.

please correct me if i am wrong in understanding.

I don't think they will do that.

At least add it to the My Subscriptions page..
