There is no direct way, you can probably check that with the size of a lot : https://docs.mql4.com/marketinformation/symbolinfodouble with SYMBOL_TRADE_CONTRACT_SIZE

you can calculate the lot size using AccountBalance or AccountEquity no need to know if it's standard, mini or micro

first scenario: Acc. = standard, Account balance or eqiuty = 200 \$

second scenario: Acc. = micro, Account balance or eqiuty = 20000 \$

so where exactly is the account type in the equation ?

1 micro lot = 0.10 usd per pip

1 mini lot = 1 usd per pip

1 standard lot = 10 usd per pip

(in EURUSD)

I mean lot size to trade from calculation with pip value, sl, tp, and risk in percent of accoumt balance.

are you using OrderSend(Symbol(), OP_BUY, 1 micro lot, ........); or OrderSend(Symbol(), OP_BUY, 0.1, ........);

so my question stands what difference does it make ?
