Is there any way to set a multiple for lot # on a signal?

Hi all,

 

So I created a cent account, to start things off with. Followed a Signal and am curious about whether it's possible to multiply the lot size for incoming trades on the signal. 

Alternatively, I might have to see if my broker will convert my account from a cent to a dollar account.

Anybody who can share any experience with that, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Seems not understandable language
But maybe you need to increase your balance in order to get bigger lot sizes while you are copying a signal

Thanks for replying. I'll try make it clearer.

  • I have cent account and I am following a signal is also a cent account.
  • The lot sizes of the trades average about 0.1% of my account balance.
  • I want to change this so that the lot sizes are multiplied by 10 so that the trade sizes average 1% of my balance.
  • I want to take the lot sizes received from the signal and purchase 10x the amount. So if a lot size is  0.87 I want to purchase 8.7 instead.

Is it possible to change this in MetaTrader 4?
