MBT beta accounts openenig soon
« on: June 05, 2009, 09:19:19 PM »
just an heads up.  for those who have scalper EA's that don't hedge,  MBT will be offering more beta accounts I read on FF starting sometime on next Tuesday. I signed up at the last beta opening 2 weeks ago.  spreads are great here.  the way it works is that the app will stop working and mt4 accounts will be taken out of the sign up process.  don't pay attention to what it says on the front page.  if you can still select an mt4 account as an option, than it's available at that time and they make you sign and return a BETA agreement before you can have your account activated.

seems like they're almost out of beta offering more and more accounts

What Settings do we change in Fapturbo to overcome the lot size issue.

I have the standard settings and when it trades 10.00 lots it like 1 standard lot.

here is an example from my demo:
9   2009.06.08 18:51   sell   10.00   eurchf   1.51771   1.52300   1.51720   2009.06.08 18:53   1.51718   -13.90   0.00   0.00   48.56

5.3 pips profit  should be 480.56 on 10 standard lots.

Say for example if I am using an LRR of say 20 should I adjust it to 200 to compensate for the
x10 difference?

My Maxlots is set to 10.  I will move MaxLots up to 100 first then try the larger LRR.  

I will try it today and see what it does.   If anybody knows please respond.

Thanks,

I think that is correct.  just do a quick back test to see if it doesn't need to be changed.  i haven't had FAPT in a while but yes some EA's need an extra 0, some don't like THUNDER4WD

Thanks!

I upped the MaxLots from 10 to 100 and it seems to be trading ok now.   Weird that MBT needed that.   Their Mini Lots size ".1" is like a .01 normal lot size at every other broker I have ever tried.   I wonder why they went this way.  I will have to give them a chat to understand why.   

I tried their Demo along time ago and don't remember having this problem.    maybe my lot size wasn't so high back then, who knows.
