How do we know what lotsize will be opened on our account balance size when we get our first signal?  

 

Can I adjust the Lotsize using the Use Equity % of Account?

 

Please help. thank you

There are 2 ways to do :

Forum on trading, automated trading systems and testing trading strategies

Can you change the ratio in which a signal is subscribed to?

You have only 2 ways to act on the calculated ratio :

  • Increase "% of deposit used" in Signals settings.
  • Add more capital to your account.
if I am wrong so sorry ...

All that we have is a Ratio % for Lotsize control.


The only way to get a larger lotsize than the Master account is as follows:

 if Subscriber's account balance reserved for signals copying is greater than Provider's account balance (Subscriber_Balance * Load > Provider_Balance).


My new question is the Load factor. What is it? Are there more examples of how to know the lotsize in forecast based on metaquote calculations.
