    Hi all, for some reason it has created different lot sizes on different trades.

    See here:

    Orders

    The signals were all with just 1 TP, here’s some examples of the related signals:

    AUDNZD BUY
    P 1.04630
    TP 1.04830
    SL 1.04030

    AUDUSD BUY
    P 0.71630
    TP 0.71830
    SL 0.71130

    GBPUSD SELL
    P 1.36569
    TP 1.36419
    SL 1.36969

    EURAUD SELL
    P 1.6375
    SL 1.6450
    TP 1.6100

    US30 SELL
    P 35230
    TP 35200
    SL 35450

    My configurations are set to have a lot size of 0.02, but for some reason it used 0.01 for some and even 1.00 for US30

    I do have a setting set to split the lot size with a custom % in case there’s multiple tp’s, but there’s only 1 tp, so I don’t get it.

    Can anyone help me please?

    Would it help if I copy paste the configuration file here?

    Hello Yannick,

    The lot size settings are always applied regardless of how many TPs the signal has. You have chosen “Custom Risk Percent Split”, which means that the lot sizes are calculated based on the SL and the input percent for each TP.

    In order to use Fixed lot (0.02), Money Management Method has to be Fixed Lot, and the size will be equally split for each TP level.

    Hope this is clear, let me know

    Hi, I understand about the split, but then how did that us30 get to lot size 1.00? That is a big size, which has now cost me quite some money.

    And that also doesn’t really explain why some have 0.02 and some 0.01. If what you say is correct then all lot sizes should have been 0.014, rounded to 0.01. But that’s not what happened
