I have been using the position sizer on a demo account for about 1 month and the autotrading works well. now I have started a challenge of a prop and with the new demo account (same broker) I do not open the operations. I always have to remove and reinsert the expert advisor. can you help me? thank you

The Experts tab of your MetaTrader platform should show some messages when you try to open a trade and it fails. If you could copy them here or show us the screenshot, we could probably help you. But most likely, it is either autotrading disabled in your platform (or for this EA) or autotrading disabled by the broker (prop firms often disable autotrading at around news release times).

OK thank you. I insert the screenshot here. the problem is that once I close the expert advisor and put it back in the card, I try to open a position again it works. I always have to remove and reinsert it before opening a position. thank youSchermata 2022-09-29 alle 09.03.51.png

Error 4109 is a common error when using expert advisors in MT4 and it means that "Trade is not allowed". Basically, the EA cannot submit orders or make any changes to orders.

To fix this error, you need to enable automated trading in the MT4 options and enable live trading in the EA's properties.

How do you open a trade - via a hotkey or via a button on the Trading tab?

i open a trade whit Trading tab
Then, the problem might be with account switching for example. If you switch an account, the autotrading gets disabled automatically. You need to re-enable it. Did you try instead of re-attaching the EA, just enable its live trading via the properties (F7)?

Thanks for another fantastic product. I have just started using it and had two questions.

1. Does position sizer still manage your trades if you do not use the order function but take the trades manually or with another EA?

2. Also with the maximum number of trades function, does it limit trades based on the chart the EA is placed on or does it limit the number of trades for the whole MT4. For example if I place it on USDJPY and limit trades to 4, will it only limit the trades on USDJPY to 4 or will it limits all the trades on all the other pairs to 4?

It will manage (you mean trailing stop and BE, right?) other trades if you set open them with the same Magic number as is set on the Trading tab of the Position Sizer.

2. Also with the maximum number of trades function, does it limit trades based on the chart the EA is placed on or does it limit the number of trades for the whole MT4. For example if I place it on USDJPY and limit trades to 4, will it only limit the trades on USDJPY to 4 or will it limits all the trades on all the other pairs to 4?
There is the All symbols checkbox for that. If it's not ticked, then the PS only counts the trades on the same currency pair. If it is ticked, it counts trades across all pairs.

Hi Enivid, Thank you for the EA, I am trying to use both Position sizer and account protector, however I am unable to use them at the same time, can you pls point me to EA which covers closing of postions as account protector with Position sizer
You cannot add both to the same chart, but you can open a second chart and add the Account Protector there.

Hello,
I've been using the position size calculator and it works great! I was wondering if you could add a feature where you can stack max position sizes. With some prop firms like MFF's they have a max position size per trade of 50 lots but you can open as many trades as you want. Could you make it so the EA can stack positions? For instance, if you have a 200k account and want to open a position with a lot size of 60 could you allow a max lot size of let's say 25, but it opens two 25 lot positions and a 10 lot position to add up to 60 lots?
