# Money/Units report between account and signal

7845

I have a deposit in my account of 100\$ and following a signal of 5000\$ - use 40% from my balance for the signal. Both I and signal have leverage of 1:500.

In case the signal buys 1 unit in the MetaTrader platform, what would be the correspondence on my account? Is there a way I can calculate this in order to ajust the allowed percentage to follow the signal?

With such balance, anyway, the ratio of volume will always be 1%.

Indeed I have read the specifications and understood the case. Still can I have the formula in order to easy correlate the output?

Seems you don't read closely enough :

What rounding scheme is used for Provider's and Subscriber's percentage ratio of deals volume?

The following step-by-step algorithm is used for percentage rounding:

1. If the value is less than 1%, it is rounded up to 1%, i.e. assumed to be 1%. Example: 0.25% => 1%
2. If the value is greater than 1% and less than 10%, it is rounded down to the nearest whole number. Example: 6.25% => 6%
3. If the value is more than 10% and less than 100%, it is rounded down with step of 5%. Example: 29.7% => 25%
4. If the value is more than 100% and less than 1000%, it is rounded down with step of 10%. Example: 129.6% => 120%

You can see an example of calculations in the General information on Trading Signals for MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 article.
