I run z12 on both a real and a demo acc. Each account trades on a different VPS.
FXCM is the broker.
I recently started both and noticed that the trades are way too small relative to what I had normally.
I checked the assets.csv file in the log golder and noticed that the margin cost is shown way to high. Interestingly the Demo acc shows higher Margin cost than the Real acc. I set the Broker patch to "0" in the z.ini file. Still the same.
How come the trade sizes are so low and does it have to do with the assets.csv list or the Brokerpatch setting? Z12 trades 5k and 7k tickets on a 50k demo acc with 25k capital slider. This seems very low given that with a 12k capital slidee setting, tickets used to be 10 times higher.
A side question on leverage. Recently, FXCM reduced my leverage on FX from 1:400 to 1:100. If I dowmload the AssetsFXCM list (via "Assetlist"), will it be updated accordingly with the new Margin requirements? And can I run a backtest and determine the required capital based off of that? In other words, will the backtest take into account the new lower leverage?
