    Hi all,

    I’m looking for some help.

    I’ve been testing the software which works ok so far on currency pairs but i’m struggling with Gold. I set a position which the position size should have been 0.7 lots but the copier has sized the trade at 7 lots so 10x the required position size.

    I’m using percentage based risk of 1% per trade, as mentioned this works fine with currency but gold it doesn’t, does anyone know of a fix for this or any settings to try? I tried using the custom symbol settings and setting the lot to 1.0 but this also hasn’t worked.

    I’m assuming I will also encounter a similar problem with US30 and NASDAQ but have not tested these yet.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Thank you for reporting this bug. We will make the appropriate fixes for calculating the risk percentage as soon as possible and release a new version of the EA.

    XAUUSD/GOLD signals still do not open with the adequate lot size (they open about 10 times bigger than they should).

    Details of the transactions:
    Forex account: BdSwiss
    Risk Management: Percentage of equity
    BDSwiss XAUUSD Contract size: 100
    BDSwiss XAUUSD Tick value: 0.01
    BDSwiss XAUUSD Tick size: 0.01

    Hello Vicenc,

    Can you tell me which version you are running? I believe this issue is fixed in the current version of the EA 1.14.8, thanks.

    I have upgraded it and still happens with BDSwiss (with a XAUUSD signal)

    I see, it behaves differently with that broker. We’ll investigate and do our best to make it function universally. Thanks for letting us know.
