Hello everyone!

A subscriber asked me how big the position size will be for his account. Here are two examples how it is calculated. I want to make sure that I understood it right and that there is no mistake in my calculation.

- account currency is Euro for both accounts

- leveraga is 1:500 for both accounts

- signals account balance is 30 Euro

- subscribers account balance is 4.500 Euro

Is the follwoing table correct?


Thanks for an answer in advance!

JT.

Actually if currency and leverage are the same then the ratio between tradet lotsize is equal the ratio between the accounts balances?

lot size in signal subscriber  account should be equal to (risk %of deposition for this signal in subscriber account/provider's account capital)*provider's lot size
