Hi please check your GBPUSD symbol specification(min lot). And write post with logs to the ServiceDesk
2015.01.08 01:29:39.648 '[account]': Signal - different specification of symbol EURUSD, signal provider has maximal volume 10000.00, subscriber has 50.00
Hello, I get this message, the signal works fine but gives me only smallest trade size 0.01 each trade.
i think because my broker minimum lot is 0.01 but provider is 0.1, but message says maximal volume so I don't understand it
is there any way around this or I cannot use this signal provider with my broker??
it is copying ok, but provider is making trade 0.1 lot and my copy trade is only 0.01 because set use 5% then 30% of equity...
so I set "use 95% of equity" and is now closer to provider trade size
the leverage is little different, provider 500, mine is 400 and account equity is similar provider
So question, this percentage of equity setting is useful if provider is trading much bigger lot sizes or had bigger equity? but if accounts are similar, percentage should be equal (or 95%)? ...thanks for the help
Although it doesn't look like much, the difference in your leverage is going to make a significant difference to the lot size calculation. Add that to the 5% you lose when setting the equity to 95% (I wish it could be 100%!!), currency conversion, rounding etc and it quickly adds up.
