Definition of the "Fixed Leverage"

When using the “Fixed Leverage” method, the system will compute the order size to place on the Slave account defining the leverage that the new position has to have regarding the account size of the Slave account. The Slave trade size does not depend of the Master trade size or account size in that case.

Below the formula used to compute the slave order size:

The “Account Size” can be defined using the equity, the balance or the free margin of both Slave and Master accounts.

The “Fixed Leverage” value could be any positive or negative value, the system will round up to the closest volume incremental step for the traded instrument. A negative value will reverse the order side.

If the minimum order size allowed by your broker for a specific symbol is bigger than the lot size computed, the Trade Copier copies the min trade size. In this particular case, the system always tries to copy the trade with the minimum allowed value.
