i have Ea i wrote a EA and would like to add script to it so that i can input a % of the balance to use in buying lots.

So $1000 could have a lot size of 0.1 and then increase it to 0.2 when the balance is $2000 and between those amounts? but i would like to be able to change the settings of the %.

i have tried to add some code but it didnt work. could some one who knows what they are doing help?

This is what I use:

Extern double PercentRisked=2

double LotsBuy()
{
double StopLossBuyCalc =(Ask-BuyStop+(Ask-Bid)+SLFromFractal*Point)*(1/Point);
double RiskPercent = (PercentRisked*0.01);
double DollarsPerLot,FirstDollarsPerLot,SecondDollarsPerLot,BuyLots;

DollarsPerLot = (MarketInfo(Symbol(),MODE_TICKVALUE)*10);
BuyLots = NormalizeDouble(((AccountBalance()* RiskPercent)/(StopLossBuyCalc*0.1)/DollarsPerLot),2);
return (BuyLots);
}
