# Changing balance of an account during a RUNNING trade by signal

412

Hi,

Suppose my account is 1100 USD 1:500 and copying a signal provided with 1000 USD 1:500, so we are 1 to 1 now (considering i have the percentage set @ 95%).

Now let's assume he has one running trade with 0.02 lots, which my account copied with same size.

During its running, let's say i either doubled my account, or withdraw half of my balance. I understand the risk involved with higher drawdown percentage, but my question is, will the MT4 automatically double or reduce to half the running trade? or will leave it as is, but will perform new trades at the new ratio?

Thank you

I'd guess the latter.
