    NT7 to FOREX.com connecting issue

    Hello:
    I have autotraded FXCM and IB using NT7 before without any issues. But with FOREX.com, for some unknown reasons, it looks at my order as 100 times larger. Of course, the order got rejected. I talked to FOREX.com and they told me the issue is with NT. I tried different setting, like 'pip' and 'tenthpip' from the option menu, and still I could not get it to work. With FXCM and IB, the setting are correct immediately. Any suggestions as to how to fix this?

      Hi Drew:

      Thanks for your help. I tried 'pip' and 'tenthpip' as you had suggested. I restarted NT each time. Nothing changed. Can you take over the computer remotely for a look-see?

          Hello Brandon/Drew:

          Thanks for calling me regarding the issue. Since NT is in partnership again with FOREX.COM, the issue with the lot size multiplier needs to be resolved for the NT autotrade to work. I am using NT 7.0.1000.31 version. Will there be a newer version of the software to be released before Feb 26th?

          Thanks for your help!

            Got my account transferred from FXCM to FOREX/GAIN today. It is working out fine now. Your just need to reduce the order size by 1000X. So if you want to long 100000 GBP/USD, the input on your strategy or chart-trader should be 100. Anything more and you will be in for a surprise.

            Just wondering, am I the only one here with this issue?

              Hello,

              Thanks for getting back to me.

              It would be our understanding that it can be designated on Brokerage side whether a quantity of "1" would indicate a Standard, Micro, or Mini lot. I would recommend contacting your broker if you would be interested in potentially changing this parameter.
