Stop-Loss continually says (Wrong Value!) Using MT5 Version 5.00 Build 3333
I have compiled it. Removed everything from the chart and still the same result.

Right click on that instrument. click specification. So you can find 2nd or 3rd column named stop level. If the stop level is 3 you should move your SL + that level+spread. So you can place order.
I notice the issue appears on the lower times i.e. 15 min and below. It is not a problem on higher time frames.

I'm trying to copy and paste into the data folder and it's just not showing up. Dragging over doesn’t work either
Extract the files into some easy folder like c:\indi\.. Then copy all the files into that folder. If its not allowing to past into that indicator folder means you don't have permission to write the files into the folder. You can try after uninstall and reinstall the MT4.

One reason I can think of is that it asks you for Administrator permissions for some reason. Try rebooting and doing that over again. Also, make sure you are copying them into \MQL4\Indicators\ of the right data folder (of the right MT4 installation if you have several).

I have a suggestion. Can you add up and down arrow buttons in the panel right at the Entry, SL, and TP rows. Sometimes I just want to adjust a few points like 1 - 5 points. E.g. 1.01959 -> 1.01963, I just press the up arrow button 4 times for quick adjustment. If so, that will be great.

Thank you so much!

Thanks! I'll consider adding the arrows there, but I am not sure if they'll fit there well.

Hi everyone!
I couldnt find answer for my problem so I want to ask you.

Im using PSC (2.42) in MT5. Small account trading DE40 (DAX) on M1 TF. I have problem in putting position on 0.3 lot. It always rounding it down to 0.2. Same thing is with 0.6 which is always round down to 0.5.

Normally Im using % risk so PSC calculate it all for me but i even tried to put Position size to 0.3 and same thing. Always rounded down to 0.2.

What should I change to solve this problem? (I can put position of 0.3 lot manualy)

PS
sorry for my bad english

Is it calculator that is showing you 0.2 even if you input 0.3 in the position size field or is it the script that opens a 0.2 trade even though the calculator is showing 0.3?

In PSC in "Position size" I put 0.3 and when I execute that I see waiting order with position size of 0.2 lot. Always.

First I thought it is my broker thing but when I manualy put new order I can set 0.3 lot and it will be executed.

I tried to put % of risk to the point where calculator show that it will be 0.3 lot but when I put that order its once again 0.2.

Any suggestions?

Could you please show a screenshot of your Script tab settings and what the script outputs in the Experts tab when you execute it?
