    *URGENT*

    Whenever the last update was, I think it caused strategies to no longer use micro lots. I’ve just noticed this.

    The minimum order size I am seeing is 0.10, and because this my strategies that take partial-profits cannot. Only 0% or 100% (and the initial risk is wrong also). I’ve thoroughly tested it and have looked @ my code many times. Its all perfect. I tested old strategies that i *know* work and they wont do micro lots anymore upon export.
    I need to change the backtest capital size to 100,000 (instead of default 10,000) to adjust to no micro-lots now.

    Check this. I’m 90% sure I’m right.

    For a quick fix, what part of the EA code is the decimal adjustment so I can change this?

    This seems to be associated with all my new MT4 installations using the “default” server for data storage and testing.
    Very strange. I didn’t know using the “default” historical folder for data storage and testing prevented the use of micro-lots.

    Just learned something new.
    Sorry for the false alarm.

    As you can see from the log, it definitely is only going down to mini-lots:

    What file is associated with lot decimal control? I created a new server folder but it continues to not use micro-lots.
