Hi angevoyageur.  Thanks for all your time/help.  I  am researching and trying out some of the signals.  I have come to realize (learned through this site thank you) that if a signal provider uses lot sizes too big for my liking, I can adjust the size by changing the percentage in my platform options settings.  So, that's great!  Now, I need to know, is it possible, if the signal provider's lot sizes are perpetually too small for my liking (say they keep trading 0.01 volume) and I want to trade 0.10 -1.30 size lots, can that be adjusted with that percentage adjuster in my options settings too?  In short I'm asking, can the percentage be adjusted down only (minimized), or can I increase it with that function as well?  If not, is there some other way to do it?  looking forward to your response.  thanks again.  all the best to you.

You can't adjust lot size up side. AFAIK the only option to have bigger lot size is to have a bigger capital.

Hi angevoyageur.  Sorry if this is a titch off-topic, but...  you know how when you go on a signal provider's page it gives a growth report and graph (you know, profit, loss, sharpe ratio, etc.), what if I want to have a report like that just for my normal trading (not with a signal or anything)?  Is becoming a signal provider the only way I could view my trading success rate (or failure--- ha ha hopefully not!) in such an informative, graphic way?  Thanks!!

In MT5 platform you can create a report of your results. On Terminal (Toolbox) window click on History Tab, then right-click inside the window, choose Report in the opened window.

Another possibility is to use some external tools/site.
