I subscribed to signal service, used recommended broker service[ecn broker server service], results were totally different for exact same transactions[date/time buy/sell exact/, prices and profit/loss different], in my case loss.  I then tried alternate broker same thing happened what can I do here as I've asked signal service provider and was informed to just keep changing brokers ?

BTW - I have very fast internet 80-100mbps isp download and ping rates to servers 70-80ms on avg.

Hello Guys,

I have subscribed some signal, my Leverage is 1:100 and whom I am subscribed he have Leverage 1:500, My balance 350+$ and his 5000+$.

He usually pick a trade size from 0.20 to 2 standard lots but always what my MT4 do it picks 0.01 lot size to all trades.

Omg why is like that, In signals under the options menu of MT4, there is no configuration to fix this.

How do I configure the Leverage this or you can tell me what is the problem. 

Please Help!

Thank you very much.

Hi,

i want to know if the lot size will increase even when the difference between the balance of subscriber and provider very big is e.g 100$ subscriber - 10k$ provider.


Or will it be always 0.01 lot size because of this difference?


sorry for my english

Have you read how volume are calculated ?

Supposing you set 95% deposit in your signal subscription settings, that gives you the following :

Ratio = 95% * 350 / 5000 = 6.65%, then we take leverage into account :

Ratio = 6.65% * 100 /500 = 1.33% which is rounded to 1% (see FAQ pt 15).

So for 2 standard lots it must give you 0.02 lot. All value < to 0.01 are rounded to 0.01 which is probably the minimum lot.

but the ratio will be always the same, because the subscriber balance cant keep up with the providers one. Wich means the subscriber lot size wont change, iam i wrong?

Ratio will change if one of the element used to calculate it change : %deposit, ratio deposit provider/subscriber, leverage.
