In my journal, when i'm using VIACHI signal , i get this :
2013.04.18 23:04:27 'xxxxxxxx': Signal - different specification of symbol EURUSD, signal provider has minimal volume 0.01, subscriber has 0.10
What does it mean exactely ?
Is there a way to change this minimal value for 0.20 for exemple ?
I'm already at 95% of deposit use.
Can anyone help me ?
You can't change that, it's defined by the brokers. What you can do is to take an account with same specifications as provider.

The only way you can change the lot size (within the rules of MetaQuotes) is to adjust your deposit, % allocation and leverage. The article here should help.
Signal not copying full lots

You can calculate your lot size using the following example (from General information on Trading Signals for MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 article):
Let's consider a specific example of using the volumes management system:
Calculation of Provider's and Subscriber's position volumes ratio:
Thus under the given conditions, Provider's deal with volume of 1 lot will be copied:
- to Subscriber1 account in amount of 160% - volume of 1.6 lots
- to Subscriber2 account in amount of 7% - volume of 0.07 lots
Very usefull Sergey, thanksI have a question related, if I have same balance 15 000 USD, and depost lead percentage 100% (asume 100% in order to simplify calculus)If I use leverage 1:500. I understood that volume will be the same, if provider's deal with volumen of 1 lot, I will copy volumen = 1 too.But if I win 1 Pip, what will be the difference?
I understand the leverage but I just want to you to confirm me that please.
This is some general information for newbie:
