I have subscribed to a signal provider and have the below scenario:

 

Signal Provider is using 1:500 Leverage

Converts to $275 Per Standard Lot and has a balance of $178,478

Trading @ 30 Lots --> $8,250 for Margin

--> 4.5% of the Total Balance


In My case:

50,000 --> Allocated 10% of Deposit --> $5,000

So if we apply the same logic of 4.5% of Total Balance

--> $225 for Margin --> converts to 0.3 Lots as 1 Standard Lot cost --> 685 @ Leverage of 1:200

 

Is there a way to allocate higher percentage of Margin/Balance Ratio to 20% ($1,000), So I can open  1.4 Standard Lots.

And of course yes, I understand the risk :)

Set your allocated %deposit accordingly.
