#### Topic: Symbol Settings - DAX / GER30 / DEUIDXEUR

Hi

Just started experiments with fsbp and have a problem getting ducacopy data to work.

My Settings:

#### Re: Symbol Settings - DAX / GER30 / DEUIDXEUR

My Problem:

FSBP: 1 Volume -> 1 DAX Point = 1 EUR  -> Simulation

#### Re: Symbol Settings - DAX / GER30 / DEUIDXEUR

MT4: 1 Volume -> 1 DAX Point = 0.1 EUR  -> real life

Any ideas? Lot Size = 0,1 would do the trick but isn't allowed in settings...

Thanks

#### Re: Symbol Settings - DAX / GER30 / DEUIDXEUR

Can you show the DAX properties in MT4. Ctrl + U -> Properties.

Like that:

When you have Lot Size = 1 and prices in EUR. One tick will be 1 EUR. There is no other way.

#### Re: Symbol Settings - DAX / GER30 / DEUIDXEUR

sure MT4 / Broker FXCM / Account EUR

#### Re: Symbol Settings - DAX / GER30 / DEUIDXEUR

So 1 point must be equal to 1 EUR.

How do you receive 0.1 EUR?
I think your EA screenshot also shows 1 tick = 1 EUR. The profit is 3 EUR for 4 ticks. Probably you have 1 point spread.

i know it's curious, but that's what i trade all day long with MT4:

DAX (10070 - 10064) * 0,1LotSize * 5Volume = 3 EUR

to get precise:

Lot Size = 0,1 would do the trick but isn't allowed in settings... in fsbp

#### Re: Symbol Settings - DAX / GER30 / DEUIDXEUR

How do you trade 0.1 lot as MT says that the min lot is 1?
I think you trade 1 lot. At least the screenshot shows that you have 5 lots open.

Are you sure your expert doesn't round the size to the min available?

Can you open a position of 0.1 lot? I don't think so.

However this is not a problem for FSB. Just set Lot size =  0.1 in FSB.

#### Re: Symbol Settings - DAX / GER30 / DEUIDXEUR

correction MT4:

your right i trade 5 lots, but MT4 makes 0,5 lots out of it with a factor of 0,1

DAX (10070 - 10064) * 0,1 factor * 5Lots = 3 EUR (this was a manual trade)

in fsb:
that's my current solution (lot size = 0,1 in fsb) too...

but in MT4 the lot size has to be adjusted to 1 to get the same results in backtest with mt4

curious:
in your GER30 property ScreenShot there is a factor 0,1 -> ticksize ... maybe thats the problem?

#### Re: Symbol Settings - DAX / GER30 / DEUIDXEUR

Yes, this is weird. The brokers can set TickSize for scaling the profit/loss.

It appears that the TickSize is the value of one tick measured in base currency.

FSB calculates the point value (Tick value) in that way:

``Point = 1/Math.Pow(10, Digits);``

Which means:

Digit Point
0   1
1   0.1
2   0.01
3   0.001
4   0.0001
5   0.00001

It looks like I have to add additional parameter TickSize for scaling the result.
