I assume fxseer has changed the settings from 1000$ 65% down to 500$ 65%, because the position size changed from 0.22 LOT to 0.11 LOT ?!
This might be healthy step to show a real working profit account. My account is synchronous except the position size is kept to 0.22 LOT because i hope to recover from former 50% settings which cost me 20% with the single break last year.
Let's see how fast the fxseer 50% account will revover.
Would be helpful to see the complete settings fpr the accounts by vendor. Would the 50% setting reduce number of open positions when reducing $-value in the settings ? Would the 65% setting increase number of open positions when rising from 1000$ to lets say 2000$ ?
I also calculated the risk for this (and my account)
With settings '1000$ 65%' ea openes every deal a single 0.22 LOT position Hitting SL (is always 90 PIP on the 'Session 1' time frame ) this results in 198$ loss (1:500).
If this should be a 2% risk for single trade one has to keep a 9900$ balance. If this should be a 3% risk for single trade one has to keep a 6600$ balance. If this should be a 4% risk for single trade one has to keep a 4950$ balance.
With every closed position in profit you lower your current risk due to the fixed '1000$ 65%' (or '500$ 65%' here ?!) settings a bit.

Hello, husar2003. No value of your deposit in settings of EA doesn't affect on number of open positions. It's only affect on the lot size. The number of open positions depends on profit that you set in setting of EA.
50% opens 4 positions, 65% opens always 1 single position. -> so 65% is more stable in nervous market conditions ? So 1 risky position is better than 4 (each other supporting) positions in nevous market times.
i think i have tio stop this completley . EA opened yesterday evening 1.19 LOt without recognizable reason (e.a. no losses before), what is on 1:50 leverage half of my money is bound and complete loss of money is question of time. :(
Any Ea has the following data : leverage, account balance. fxseer ha a risk factor AND A GIVEN BALANCE TO TRADE. With given 500$ there is NO way to open 1.19 LOT in a single position at least what my nerves can carry. Or can somebody explain this to me ?
Yesterday hitting SL with the big down move after tapring news by FED. EA oponed a SELL position more than 5 times the normal (winning position , 0.11 LOT/500$) as SELL : 0.59 LOT. In total there is a profit of abount 20$ ;) Anyway the SL of the big SELL position would destroy my account if heavy rebound woulfd occur (leverage 1:50). I have to think of adding more cash to survive this BIG openings after loss. the next position should be a again a 0.11 LOT per given 500$
