    Need help with quantity on Forex

    Hello

    I use FXCM demo and sim account to check my strategy. It works in realtime (not in backtesting). I noticed that I need to use order quantity about 100 000 to have some significant PL. If I use quantity = 1 my PL is so miserable that even cannot be shown in NT after rounding (it always $0.00). So I set my quantity to 100 000 and it goes well.

    But working with these thousands is very inconveniable. How can I scale my account to have quantity = 1 equal to 1 forex lot (100K)?

    Hello rfsettling,

    Thank you for your post.

    Glad to assist. There is not a method to change these this item, NinjaTrader 8 uses full unit values in the QTY/quantity fields, so 100,000 will need to be used for a Standard lot.

    As a note, the default QTY used to populate the QTY fields can be saved via the Control Center Account Menu. To do this, right click on the Account > Select Edit Account > Forex Lot size.

    Let us know if we may assist further.
