Hi,

I don’t understand the calculation of SIZE/Volume while following a signal provider.

Here are the details:

  • My Account Currency: USD
  • My Balance: 10.000$
  • Max Usage: 95%
  • Max Lost: 0$ (disabled)
  • Deviation: 0.5 (default)
  • Leverage: 1:500 (as my Signal Provider)
  • My Slippage: ~4.78 (rather high, but OK)

and here are the details of my Signal Provider:

  • His Account Currency: USD
  • His Balance: 28.000$

Now, he issues a trade of EURUSD with a volume of 0.93 and I received a “copy” but with only 0.05
Can anyone explain why? Is there anything I can do to optimize it?

 

Thanks in advanced
