Metatrader 4 Signal Lot Size not copied?

newdigital, 2013.08.14 07:38

Asking about volume/lot size calculating for subscribers so I want to remind the follolwing:

  1. This is one of the main link about calculating lot size for subscribers Signal Subscribers starting from the words "Copying Trading Operations, Volume Calculation"
  2. List of changes in MetaTrader 5 Client Terminal builds :

=============

Signals: Changed the algorithm for calculation of the copied deal's volume in case a Signal Source and a Subscriber have different leverages:

Current algorithm: A deal volume is changed in direct ratio to the correlation of a Signal Source's leverage with a Subscriber's one. It means that if a Signal Source having a leverage of 1:100 opens a deal of 1 lot, a Subscriber having a leverage of 1:500 will open a deal of 5 lots in case of 100% copying and a deposit matching by size and currency. A subscriber having a leverage of 1:10 will open a deal of 0.1 lots in similar conditions.

New algorithm: If subscriber's leverage exceeds the one of the Signal Source, it does not affect a volume of a copied deal. Otherwise, the deal volume is changed in direct ratio to the correlation of a Signal Source's leverage with a Subscriber's one. 

It means that if a Signal Source having a leverage of 1:100 opens a deal of 1 lot, a Subscriber having a leverage of 1:500 will open a deal of 1 lot in case of 100% copying and a deposit matching by size and currency. A subscriber having a leverage of 1:10 will open a deal of 0.1 lots in similar conditions.

And the main page for subscribers to understand about which lot size they will have when subscribe - this one http://www.metatrader5.com/en/terminal/help/extra_features/signals/signal_subscriber (started from the words "Copying Trading Operations, Volume Calculation"). Same in Russian http://www.metatrader5.com/ru/terminal/help/extra_features/signals/signal_subscriber (if someone prefer russian more than english for example). 

Just for information.

following a signal on cent account - 100x times too small trades

newdigital, 2013.10.21 09:09

As I remember - volume depends on deposit (your deposit size and signal provider deposit size)

read more here and here : Copying Trading Operations, Volume Calculation

Different Standard Lot Size between subscriber broker and signal broker

The only way to increase your lot size is by investing more money.

Actually, this cannot be the truth alone. I have the same problem - options set to use 95 % of deposit. My deposit is even a bit larger than the signal account. The right following of the mql5 signals in mt4 is really not easy.

as far as I know - MT4 can be connected to MT4 signals, and MT5 to MT5 signals.
