Hi all,

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I can't get in any way that in the list of trades 1 lot is multiplied by LotAmount. It is always multiplied by 100.000 to calculate the profit from the trade.

These are my variables:
EUR/USD
USD account
PIP = 0.0001;
PIPCost = 10;
Lots = 1;
LotAmount = 1000;


Trying any amount in LotAmount, 1000, 10000 or 100000 (and 0.1, 1, 10, 100) I always get the same profit. Always multiply by 100.000 to calculate the profit.
The calculation of the profit in TestTrades and the performance metrics does not vary depending on the LotAmount.

Can someone help me with this?

Thanks,
Mariano

The profit of a trade is not determined by the lot amount, but by the pip cost. Have you also changed the pip cost accordingly?
