I tried to get the leverage of my account using this code

Print(AccountInfoInteger(ACCOUNT_LEVERAGE));

Also saved a report of the history 



In all cases the leverage shown is 1:200

My broker confirmed that my account is set to 1:30 following European regulations. Also informed they cannot change the leverage that MT5 is reporting.

I'm using the latest beta but I noticed this issue in the stable version


Could this be a bug. Can anyone confirm?

Thanks

I dealt with it in Summer https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/271388

The problem is that we (generally) can have different leverage for each symbol (1:30, 1:20, 1:10, 1:5...). MetaQuotes should add a new symbol property e.g. SymbolInfoInteger(symbol,SYMBOL_LEVERAGE).

I have my own algorithm to compute the symbol leverage which solves my problem but it isn't 

a general solution.

Thanks for the reply. I did not find your post.

I second your suggestion to Metaquotes to add a that Symbol property
