If the signal provider has an account of $1,000, and consistently trades 0.03 lots, and I have a $1,000 follower account, is there any way that I can copy the same signal with 0.01 lots, effectively trading the signal at a 30% risk/reward level of the provider signal? Thanks.

For example, if you are on Metatrader 5 so you can use calculator of Signals -

Besides, you can use Calculator of the Signals (to calculate everything 'automatically' based on any pre-selected signal for example).

or you can calculate by yourself based on the following examples:

You have to manually adjust the: Use no more than ... % of deposit, option in signals settings, in order to keep a copying ratio of 30-35%.

There is no auto option for that.
