    OK, I have been able to test PSC with ActivTrades broker and this trading instrument (CPG.UK). The only sane explanation I have is that the contract specification is filled incorrectly by the broker. The specification says that the tick value is 0.0001, which is exactly 100 times lower than the factual tick value for this CFD. @Danielmoaz, could you please contact ActivTrades (if you hold a live account with them) and ask their support about why the tick value is stated as 0.0001 in the CPG.UK contract specification?

    It looks like you are using the legacy version (<2.00), not 2.12. Please make sure that you are download, installing, and attaching the right files.

    Do you mean the PSC-Trader script? What does it output into the Experts tab when you launch it for an instant order?

    Position Size Calculator indicator has been updated to version 2.13. It fixes price adjustment formula for CFDs when the profit currency is different from the account currency.

    You need to put all three files (Defines.mqh, PositionSizeCalculator.mq5, and PositionSizeCalculator.mqh) into C:\Users\Darius\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal\15D1712A4B78B6A6447C65CE068C083F\MQL5\Indicators.

    Thank you very much for this indicator, I use it all the time and have done for the last couple of years. And great site overall!

    Mark, have you made sure 'Autotrading' in the toolbar is activated? This is necessary for the script to work.

    Thank you buddy, I heard from my friend that you are blocking members who using VPN's (saying multiple accounts).One of my best friend told me. He was great in helping tendency. I'm using his advice for trading who is being most successful. He was here. and I know well there is no need to him to use multiple accounts. but he got banned. I hope you'll consider to remove these kind of technical issues.

    Thankfully

    Position Size Calculator indicator has been updated to version 2.14. It adds the mode to set SL and TP as distance to the Entry line, which allows SL/TP to follow the line as the price updates. The new version also fixes a minor bug with reward calculation.

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to this community, and the PSC V2.14 indicator is what brought me here. I have a question regarding the indicator. I'm trading on .BrentCrude on JFD MT5, and trying to use the PSC indicator to calculate position size. The calculated position size is incorrect. I think it is out by a factor of 100.

    Are there specific symbols where the PSC indicator will not work? If not, any idea where I can start troubleshooting?

    Thanks for your help

    @ceds, Thank you for reporting! I have just checked the indicator with JFD MT5 demo platform on .BrentCrude symbol and it appears that the broker's contract specification contains an error:

    contract-spec.png

    It lists the value of one tick (point) of 1 lot of .BrentCrude as $1. This is clearly not true. Considering that it is a CFD instrument, the tick value should be set to 0.001 in this case. You could try contacting your broker about this issue. The Position Size Calculator indicator gets all data for its calculations from the broker's server and cannot detect error entries there.
