Yeah I followed the link but didn't feel confident I understood it.

Have actually getting the same results now! Well actually, the 3rd decimal is sometimes rounded off differently but that's ok I think, it's close enough.

The code:

void CalculatePositionSize()
    double pips2dbl = 0.00;
    if (Digits % 2 == 1) pips2dbl = Point*10; //DE30=1/JPY=3/EURUSD=5
    else pips2dbl = Point;  
    PositionSize = RiskMoney / (RiskPips * pips2dbl * UnitCost / TickSize);

    //where RiskMoney = The amount of money being risked on the trade.
    //StopLoss = RiskPips i.e. The number of pips between the EntryLevel and stop-loss level.
    //UnitCost = The tick value in the deposit currenty
    //TickSize = The tick size in points.
   }//End CalculatePositionSize
