Hi, can anyone confirm if there is the ability to modify the breakeven level after entering the trade? Is it possible to drag and move it, like you can with the SL or TP level?

You can only modify it, but changing the numeric value on the Trading tab of the panel. You cannot modify it by dragging the lines.

Kindly consider moving the trade button on the main tab. we mostly use mouse to drag the lines So when we like to place order we have to click on the trade tab each time if we need to place order. having that in main tab will be easy.

Sorry, but I'm opposed to adding those features to the Position Sizer. One can use existing scripts, which can be easily assigned hotkeys, to deal with those tasks.

Also sometimes when We click on "risk, %" text field. It's not showing the selected text" i'ts being blank. After clicking on other area and again that files works fine.
Is that in MT4 or MT5?

I'll see what can be done there. Don't forget that you can always use a hotkey to place a trade.

Hi Everyone, I'm Currently in the process of trying to set up position sizer for MT4 Mac OS.
I have watched all the instruction videos I can find, but there doesn't seem to be a clear one that is only for Mac OS.
Thye usually are just for MT5 and say that MT4 is similar.
I have read through the instructions on the website for Mac OS, Where it explains how to install the Files one my one into Meta Editor.
I can get them on the terminal in Meta Editor (see attached Pic)
I then go to Save as, It seems like when I click save as, there is a predetermined save location for each of these individual files. When I save them all like that, and then close down MT4 and reopen it, I can see I have Position sizer in my expert advisor pane, But it has a grey diamond next to the head with a hat symbol, I think meaning that its not online. When I try to compile the Position sizer MQ4 in Meta Editor it tells me there are 101 errors and 17 Warnings. Can anyone please advise the easiest way to get the position sizer working? Simply Dragging and dropping the files into the expert folder doesn't seem to work. Thanks very much for your time!

What is the first error it displays when you try to compile Position Sizer.mq4?
You need to save all the files to the same folder and only then compile. It might be that MetaEditor is proposing to save the .mqh files to a different location, but they need to be saved to the same folder as the .mq4.

PS: I recommend using MT4 via Parallels on macOS. It should make installing custom indicators and EAs much simpler.

Yes, but not with the Position Sizer. With the Position Sizer, you can divide a trade into N positions and then close them separately.
Ok, thank you. But if I sell 0.25 Lot with the trade panel from Metatrader 5, it opens a new position, so that I have 1 Lot open long and another 0.25 Lot open short. It does not close 0.25 from the 1Lot trade I opened with the Position Sizer. Could you tell me, what to do to close 0.25 from the 1 Lot, so that there is only 0.75 Lot open left?

You can close it manually. Please see this guide:

Hi. I just recently encountered a problem where an alert pops up and says "Entry and stop-loss levels should be different ant non-zero". This results in the EA being unusable. How do I fix this? Thanks!

Just change your stop-loss to be different from the Entry level and it will stop popping up.

Yes. that is great feature. But for the physical ill person who use only mouse most of the time that will be more helpful. Also it's good for some other who drag the SL TP, Entry line via mouse and instantly clicking on the Trade button on main page will be easy.

Kind regards
