Most probably the leverage is small.

It's clearly said what is the problem. If you notice it earlier, you wouldn't be here.

When you subscribe to signal service, you should not have any manual trades because it will intervene the signal trades.


Best option is to open another account just for manual trade and leave the signal account alone.
