New article How to copy signals using an EA by your rules? has been published:
When you subscribe to signals, such situation may occur: your trade account has a leverage of 1:100, the provider has a leverage of 1:500 and trades using the minimal lot, and your trade balances are virtually equal — but the copy ratio will comprise only 10% to 15%. This article describes how to increase the copy rate in such cases.
The MetaTrader 5 terminal allows to connect both hedging and netting
trading accounts of the subscriber. Depending on the type of the
connected account the behavior of the copier regarding the substitution
of the Magic Number in the copied position will differ drastically. To
answer this question, let us consider the following figure:
Fig. 6. Netting account, without substitution of the Magic Number
As it can be seen, on a netting account the copier increased the
position without substituting the Magic Number — this caused the
position to become "foe" for the Signals service. That is, operation of the copier without substituting the Magic Number is a mistake.
This means that on a netting account the copier must always substitute
the Magic Number when increasing the position. But while working on a
hedging account everything is the opposite: when increasing the position
the copier must substitute the Magic Number with its own.
