I have 20% of the account size of my subscribed signal, same leverage, yet the percentage is set at 15% not 20%. I made sure that I'm setting the signal subscription options to "use 95% of deposit" (using less than 100% should make it slightly less than 20%... perhaps 19% or so, not 15%). What am I missing?
Let's consider a specific example of using the volumes management system:
Calculation of Provider's and Subscriber's position volumes ratio:
Thus under the given conditions, Provider's deal with volume of 1 lot will be copied:
I'm setting my deposit load percentage to 95%, not 20%.
Following this calculation, the percentage should be 0.95 * 1991.35 / 10120.14 = 0.187 or ~19%.
As per the logs above, MT4 is showing 15% instead of the expected 19%.
So, if provider's lo size = 1 so your lot size will be 0.18 (or 0.19) lots
In MQL5 signal subscription service, if your copying ratio is over 10% is rounded up to the next 5th, so it goes: 10%, 15%, 20%, 25% and so on...
This is quite annoying and strange at the same time. I don't know why it couldn't be in single units as well?
I agree, that's absurd! Thanks for clarifying.
I'm guessing that it also rounds to the nearest 10th after the copying ration exceeds 100%.
I've run the calculation on one of my subscribed signals and got a 338% conversion ratio, but the one displayed on the terminal was 330% instead of 335%.
