Hello, I'm trying to figure out how to save the changes to the settings. When I try to save them, noting will save. Is there a specific file in the MQL5 that I'm supposed to save to? I'm using MT5 on a mac.
Do you mean save the input parameter values? You can save them to a .set file. But you need to load it manually when you attach the PSC to a new chart. Or are you asking about something else?

It appears that you are trying to open a trade with the size lower than the minimum allowed by the broker's trading server.
Hi Enivid,

I set 1% risk in the PSC 2.42 for SP500. The lot size has not been updated for the SP500. (it remains 0.1 for any risk % I give)

But for the FX pairs, It works beautifully.

It is not updated because it calculates a value that is still lower than 0.1, which appears to be the minimum position size allowed by your broker on this symbol.

You're correct, I was asking about the input parameter values. When I try to change the parameters and save them, it won't save. Which would make sense because I was just trying to save it in the same folder that I have the PSC in. Do I have to make a set file to save the changes to or is there already a set file that I can save the changes to? I'm not incredibly computer savvy.

You can save it in any .set file you want (you can name it whatever you want). Just make sure you are loading it when you attaching it to a new chart if your intention is to have the same input parameters there.

Position size calculator. I downloaded it in my demo account first. it was working good. Then I switch to my life account it stopped working. It doesn’t work in my demo as well now. Auto trading is on, one click order is one, I reinstall the software. I can hear the sound as it places the order . I was able to place the order just once or twice somehow. That’s the message coming on experts. Spend a whole day can’t figure it out. Any help would be appreciated.

The messages in the Experts tab say that the position size you trying to execute the trades with is lower than the broker's minimum position size.

Thank you very much for the response. I change the size but still coming to send message. But I’m gonna look more closely when market it’s open. I cannot test it now. I will get back to you with results ,if you don’t mind. Thanks again for

newest build, its just when switching between timeframes. i compiled it. build 3326
As I understand, 3326 is a beta build? I am using the latest release build and it's 3320. However, I am not sure that it is connected with your issue.

One reason could be that you used the No Optimization option when compiling. Make sure you have Maximum Optimization ticked there:

PS: Are you on Windows or on Mac/Linux?
