How do I set my percentage loss etc when I've subscribed to a signal, I put my stop at £1000 but I've withdrawn and want to put at £500 so I can continue to trade. I'm below £1000 and can't find where to change my preferences on my signal subscription. Many thanks
At the same place where you set the initial £1000 stop, at your signals settings. Adjust your settings and synchronize/migrate with your MQL5 VPS again.
I have subscribed to a Signal and 6 SELL positions of AUDCAD with lot size 0.01 each added over the time.
After re-connection to SignalServer, BUY 0.05 lot is executed at loss to match the lot position with the provider but there is no execution at provider.

"mismatch of position volume, trying to fix" means the following:
It is what I know in theoretical point of view.To know exactly what happened - you need to examine all the log file, because everything should be written there.
No Manual trading done on this account or SL hit.
Checked the log files > Also No Balance / Leverage adjusted for the whole day. P ercentage for volume conversion selected according to the ratio of balances and leverages is same 15% throughout the day.
Example: 6 SELL positions of AUDCAD with lot size 0.01 each added over the time. Provider 0.06 SELL / Subscriber 0.06 SELL
After signal Server re-connection, 0.05 lot is closed and only 0.01 is remaining. Provider 0.06 SELL / Subscriber 0.01 SELL
This is happening for other currency pairs also where accumulated lot size > 0.01. All are adjusted back to 0.01
Is signal Server is trying to match the leverage (15%) of open positions after each re-connection. Is that a bug in copy Server?
As I replied in my previous post - you should look at the log files to understand about what happened (it should be written everything about it on the log files), or you can upload log file here (together with signal subscription settings) on the thread and the users will try to understand.
Because the users are usually complaining about the following: "I closed 5 orders by myself or orders were closed by stop loss/take profit, so why those 5 orders are opened once again after that?". Because the orders should be opened once again if those orders are still open for signal provider (and it is normal signal service behaviour in this case).
You are using MT5 and MQL5 signal copying system tried to correct the copied AUDCAD lot size, by closing 0.05 of your sell AUDCAD position, by buying 0.05 AUDCAD, leaving only a 0.01 sell AUDCAD position.
You (and the signal provider) shouldn't deposit or withdraw money, change leverage, change signal settings etc. with open positions.
