I am subscriping to a signal provider but I noticed that the order placed on my MT4 is not as same as the signal provider lots size, why is that?

EX:

The provider places 0.34 EUR/USD and it is copied to my account as 0.28 lots

The provider places 0.18 EUR/USD and it is copied to my account as 0.15 lots


this is around 83% of the orders, why?


and another important thing, why it does't copy the limit orders, it just copy the traded orders and that execute them on different prices?


thanks...
