Hello,

I've a big problem. My broker is GKFX and I bought signals from SAPIENT https://www.mql5.com/en/signals/22769

But the lot-calculation is wrong. I'm using MetaTrader 4 and MQL5.

Signal provider

Equity: 25,000 $

Leverage: 1:500

Lot size: 2.42

Symbol: EURUSD

Price: 1.13197

Subscriber (Me)

Equity for use: 10,000 €

Leverage: 1:400

Lot size: 0.1 < too less, I can't reach break-even!


Can somebody help me? My broker told me that he can't do anything.


Kind regards,

Dennis

Hello please read this article and calculate manually lot size also read this. Your calculation 1 lot provider = 0.18 lot subscriber, so 0.18 => 0.1%

  1. If the value is greater than 0.1% and is less than 1%, it is rounded to tenths. Examples: 0.11 => 0.1%, 0.25% => 0.3%.

Hello AlekseyP,


I already did it:

My free capital is 10,000 € (95% of 10526)

10,000 / 25,000 = 0.4

0.4 * (400 / 500) = 0.32

0.32 * 1,258 (EURUSD) = 0.40256

rounded > 0.4

2.42 * 0.4 = 0.97

0.97 lots should be copied. But in MetaTrader 4 the lot size is all the time 0.1 :-(

Why is my leverage in MetaTrader 1:10 and not 1:400 like it should be?

You should ask your broker. We don't  set manually your leverage.
