Asking about volume/lot size calculating for subscribers so I want to remind the follolwing:
Signals: Changed the algorithm for calculation of the copied deal's volume in case a Signal Source and a Subscriber have different leverages:Current algorithm: A deal volume is changed in direct ratio to the correlation of a Signal Source's leverage with a Subscriber's one. It means that if a Signal Source having a leverage of 1:100 opens a deal of 1 lot, a Subscriber having a leverage of 1:500 will open a deal of 5 lots in case of 100% copying and a deposit matching by size and currency. A subscriber having a leverage of 1:10 will open a deal of 0.1 lots in similar conditions.New algorithm: If subscriber's leverage exceeds the one of the Signal Source, it does not affect a volume of a copied deal. Otherwise, the deal volume is changed in direct ratio to the correlation of a Signal Source's leverage with a Subscriber's one.
It means that if a Signal Source having a leverage of 1:100 opens a deal of 1 lot, a Subscriber having a leverage of 1:500 will open a deal of 1 lot in case of 100% copying and a deposit matching by size and currency. A subscriber having a leverage of 1:10 will open a deal of 0.1 lots in similar conditions.
And there is some changes related to lot size/volume made in one of the latest build of Metatrader:
And the main page for subscribers to understand about which lot size they will have when subscribe - this one https://www.metatrader5.com/en/terminal/help/signal_subscriber (started from the words "Copying Trading Operations, Volume Calculation"). Same in Russian https://www.metatrader5.com/ru/terminal/help/signal_subscriber (if someone prefer russian more than english for example).
Just for information.
This is very good post made by onewithzachy . This post is here (it is really good to read - it is about MT5 data, gap data and how to find brokers' servers to open account with them using just one MT5 instance installed).
They have it - see on the image:
But it depends on the broker in anyway.
Some good indicators as a reminder:

How to Start with Metatrader 5
Well ... the key article about MT5 ias this one (my opinion sorry):
MetaTrader 5 - More Than You Can Imagine! Do not look at the title of this article - seems - the title is promotional one.I am talking about content - content is really great and there are a lot of good links inside this article.So, basicly - I started with this one.Later on - I can describe about what I like, what I do not like, and what I do not understand sorry.Just for example - I really like this feature - moving sl/tp by mouse on the chart:
I am trading almost in every day so it is what I like: stop loss/take profit may be moved by mouse as the lines on the chart.About programming - I personally was stucked with icustom ... you know that for MT4 - it may be really issue: if indicator was based on 3 other indicators and one of them is based on 2 others so ...
