I'm testing a trading signal and I read how volume is calculated in my terminal. My question is can I increase the volume on my own? I would like to do it on my own risk, without asking for responsabilities on MQL5 if things go wrong. Could you please tell me how could I do it?
You have 2 ways:
1) Increase your trading balance. After that percentage for volume conversation will be recalculated.
2) Increase % of deposit usage. Tools->Options->Signals "Use no more than x % " max 95%.
i've subscribed one signal to my account and metatrade is correctly connected. my question is: the copy work also if the terminal is off?
I'm user of XM micro account, and my pair names at MT4 looks like: EURUSDmicro, GBPUSDmicro, USDJPYmicro.
If I want to follow a signal service, I must do something different?
Or when the signal provider open a EURUSD order my MT4 will open a EURUSDmicro order normally?
what happens if my calculated lot size on a Signal is below Minimum lot size?
my lot size calculation factor is 6%. What happens when the signal attempts a trade at 0.05 lots? Well 6% of 0.05 lots is 0.003 lots which is below my minimum trade lot size of 0.01 lots.
Is there an error 131 Invalid trade volume and the Signal is not executed on my account?
Or is the Signal automatically rounded up to the minimum lot size of 0.01 and is executed on my account?
Thanks for your help.
