LOT SIZE SETTINGS WITHIN AUTOTRADER. If you choose Autotrader option, your autotrader will be taking lot size details from settings within autotrader. Firstly choose lot type with aut_lot_type option (Fixed Lots = Fixed; Flexible Lots = Flexible or % of Deposit). Lot size is set within aut_lot_size field (regardless the type of lot you choose). If you use Flexible Lots option, it is required to use flexdepo value as a basis for lot calculation. More detailed information on how to choose the most efficient lot type or how lots are calculated, you may find here.
All other options are set within Inputs tab within autotrader only.
Slippage. Very rarely by the time an autotrader gets a trading alert, a price may move dramatically. Set the maximum slippage level to cancel a trade opening in case a price is more than a "Slippage amount" pips away from Signalator open price.
noInstant. If you can't set SL / TP levels prior to open a position, set noInstant value to true. An autotrader will open a trade first and then will update SL / TP levels.
Cursymbol. For additional security purposes, add the symbol title of your broker you attach an autotrader. If your broker has EURUSDecn, EURUSDmini, etc. symbol, simply add this value to this field.
Checkcurrency. In most case brokers use either common or commonly accepted symbols. When you attach an autotrader to a chart, an autotrader will check whether you attaching it to the right pair. However, in some cases, a symbol may be very uncommon and an autotrader won't be able to validate a currency pair even if you place it on a right chart. Set the checkcurrency to false and an autotrader won't be validating a currency pair symbol.
Showdetails. By default all operations made by an autotrader are accompanied with text details. However, if you would like to have more details (true by default), choose this option. If this is set to true, every time a trade is opened, a message with type of lot and lot size will be inserted.
Troubleshooting. If for some reason you experience any difficulties with an autotrader, use this option in true state (default value) to generate detailed information which can help you or Signalator support better and faster identify a problem occurred. More detailed information is available on Automated Trading Installation Errors page.
Stopsmanage. If you change a SL / TP level manually, an autotrader will then change it to the value passed from an alert. To leave your levels entered manually, set stopsmanage setting to true. Please note: in that case, an autotrader won't update these levels until you set the value to false.
UseSound. If you would like to hear sounds an autotrader generates, leave it as true value. Sounds are very helpful to identify everything is made correctly even without checking a trading platform.
WriteLog and WriteMsg. These options are used for storing information about errors and operations made by an autotrader.
