Thanks Alain, but my question was intended to be rhetorical. Thanks also for your good wishes. I feel sure I will need all the luck I can muster!

The trouble is the multiplier differs from one instrument to another. Hard coding the numbers will prove to be a right pain in the proverbial posterior :(

Adding an appropriate "input setting" is probably the least of several evils.

Beside asking to AMP to fix it or do it manually, you can also :

Grab the margin html webpage from AMP site, and parse it to collect the data you need.

Get the data directly from the exchange somehow.

Thanks again Alain,

I will ask AMP to ask MetaQuotes to fix it. Based on recent experience I don't have high hopes though!

I wrote an HTML parser for "news" many moons ago, before such things were readily available over an API. I don't particularly want to go through that again though!

I'll let you know if I get anywhere.

I'm not getting lots of slippage on my stops thus far, so that's some small comfort at least!
