Hello,

I decided to give a little attention to signal subscribing. I have a few questions:

1-Can I change the lot size of the signal ?

2-How ROI is calculated ?

3-What AVG pips means; probably average pips, but how is calculated ?

Thanks in advance !

Good information but did not answer to question 2 and 3.
And related question 1 if Subscriber trade 0.01 lot and my account has less money than his is it possible that position to not be opened on my account?

About ROI calculation ... I remember 2 general ways of calculating ROI - I have no idea which way they are selected for Signals.

As to lot size so I do not have direct answer too ... I just remember the calculation of lot size which was written on some article :

Metatrader 4 Signal Lot Size not copied?

And there is some changes related to lot size/volume made in one of the build of Metatrader:

===========

Signals: Changed the algorithm for calculation of the copied deal's volume in case a Signal Source and a Subscriber have different leverages:

Current algorithm: A deal volume is changed in direct ratio to the correlation of a Signal Source's leverage with a Subscriber's one. It means that if a Signal Source having a leverage of 1:100 opens a deal of 1 lot, a Subscriber having a leverage of 1:500 will open a deal of 5 lots in case of 100% copying and a deposit matching by size and currency. A subscriber having a leverage of 1:10 will open a deal of 0.1 lots in similar conditions.

New algorithm: If subscriber's leverage exceeds the one of the Signal Source, it does not affect a volume of a copied deal. Otherwise, the deal volume is changed in direct ratio to the correlation of a Signal Source's leverage with a Subscriber's one. 
It means that if a Signal Source having a leverage of 1:100 opens a deal of 1 lot, a Subscriber having a leverage of 1:500 will open a deal of 1 lot in case of 100% copying and a deposit matching by size and currency. A subscriber having a leverage of 1:10 will open a deal of 0.1 lots in similar conditions

And the main page for subscribers to understand about which lot size they will have when subscribe - this one https://www.metatrader5.com/en/terminal/help/signal_subscriber  

Just for information.

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.
