DislikedHi Jason, about the upcoming lotsize reduction in the CFD section next week I think I found something strange on the MT4 side of FXCM. When I calculate a lotsize for a given Risk of 200 Points and 100€ Riskvolume in EURUSD I calculated it using the formula in the little snippet below(*) In EURUSD the real result is: 100€/7.24€/P/lot/200P = 0.698 lots ~ 0.7 lots. The formula below reflects this result as well as the screenshot of a appropriate order in the demo account. In SPX500 the real result is: 100€/0.0724/200=6.9 Lots ~ 7 Lots. The same formula...Ignored
I asked one of our techs to review your post. He said your math looks to be correct, so most likely the error is somewhere in your code. However, he did not understand what you meant when you said "Seems like there is already (€ == US$) in the parameter set of the SPX500 and XAUUSD."
