Hi.
Using my MT5 release provided from my Broker, the values for balance / equity and free margin remains zero all time until the trade not finish.
For example, if I got $ 100 of profit during a succesfully closed trade I will have $ 100 available for balance / equity and free margin. And so on...

But, thinking about an EA execution, can this cause some issues to start a trade ? The EA will starts with a balance variable equal zero...

If positive,  basing on MQL5 API we have a method called "AccountFreeMargin()" that returns a double value that I think that can be handled inside the code.

Basing on this, is it possible to declare fixed values for Balance / Equity and Free Margin as a variable or something like this to run in my real execution for EA ?
