1. Welcome to the forum (I see you are a member since yesterday)

2. Honestly.. when did you last trade max lot? With a typical broker that's e.g. 50 lots? So multiplied with a contract size of 100.000 you are for example moving 5.000.000 $$ of capital with e.g. 50:1 leverage (required margin 100.000$, so that's your min. account size if you wanna go 'all in')... but then you ask the question how to close such a position? Do you have such positions in real life?

how does that fit together? 

scenario 1: you refer to the millions made by backtesting of martingales or some overfitting EA on M1 OHLC data

scenario 2: you have absolutely 0 money management in place

scenario 3: you are a billionaire and forex expert and "max lot" is within reasonable money management... but then: you don't ask this question


to summarize: not what you want to hear, but there is no "routine" for something that doesn't happen in your real life;

theoretical answer: you close the position via several deals until zero "net" remaining position size (isn't that what netting is about?)
