@vespucci If you remove PSC from the chart, and then add it again, does the bug still occurs when switching timeframes?
If so, try deleting from /MQL4/Files/ all txt files beginning with "PSC" and all ini files beginning with "Position Size Calculator".
If this doesn't help, please send me the .set file you are using, so I could test it. Perhaps, there is some weird combination of input parameters that's causing that.

I'm glad it helped, but if the same issue reappears, please let me know. Maybe there is some sequence of actions that leads to such incorrect behavior.

Yeah I was playing with it for a bit but couldn't manage to mess it up again, to be honest I've never had that happen before while I was riding with the outdated version, maybe I screwed up while "installing" the newer version so something broke in the process. I'll let you know, thanks for your help and for this tool in general, appreciate it I can't see myself trading without it

I've been using the MT4 indicator for a couple of years now, it's great, thanks for you work.
I'm now using MT5 aswell, and I gather this version isn't kept as up to date, which I understand.
How can I change the dimensions so that it is nice and compact like MT4? I see that it's because of the small position size MT5 allows for. Whats the solution, do I need to remove that micro lot functionality, or change the borders manually? In the code I see CHART_WIDTH_IN_PIXELS with no value to define it.

Actually, PSC for MT5 is somewhat more advanced than PSC for MT4, not the other way around.

CHART_WIDTH_IN_PIXELS has nothing to do with that. The panel's and its elements' dimensions are defined in lines 235-290 of PositionSizeCalculator.mqh.

Thanks very much. One other question, will the MT5 version get the function to adjust lot size manually, like in MT4?

It already has such a function.
So it is, when I updated to recent version!
Great functionality, although I'm still stuck on how to make the windows narrower. Could you please guide me on the parameter to decrease the width so it's the same as MT4?

You can replace the body of these two functions in PositionSizeCalculator.mqh of the MT5 version with the body of these functions from MT4:
MQL5:
bool QCPositionSizeCalculator::Create(const long chart, const string name, const int subwin, const int x1, const int y1)
bool QCPositionSizeCalculator::CreateObjects()

Then, you'd need to find the following line in the MoveAndResize() function and replace 500 with 350:
MQL5:
      if (NoPanelMaximization) Width((int)MathRound(500 * m_DPIScale));

After you recompile PositionSizeCalculator.mq5, it should look like the panel in MT4.

Please make sure you are using the latest version of PSC (which is 2.33) with the latest version of PSC-Trader script (which is 1.10), having also removed the pre-2.32 lines from the chart (explained in this post).

Hello @Enivid
i think additional SL label might be more useful than TP incase of any misplaced risk percantages
in that way i can disable "ask confirmation" option too :)

SL label would always show the same info however you drag it - that could seem confusing to people.

Which "ask confirmation" option? Script? Uncheck the checkbox on the Script tab.

Thnks mate but i didn't mean that what i mean is if i want to use minimized PSC without order confirmation that'd be useful in order to be certain about risked amount

Hello,
In the indicator Position Size Calculator, v2.33, the calculation of the position of the lot does not seem correct... is it?

In my case, after installing, I have for example:

USD / CAD
Entry Long: 1.27570
SL = 1.26339 (1.5 x ATR (14))
TP = 1.28391 (1.0 x ATR (14))
Risk = 1.0% (Account Balance = EUR 39,470.40)
Position Size = 0.49 Shouldn't it be 0.27?
