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?

In America today, Thanksgiving Day. Traditionally, before this holiday amrikansky fondovyy2 market is growing. Was no exception this year. But growth this year is special. Zero Hedge calls it abnormal. "This Is Madness" S & P500 index closes above the 5-day moving average of the 29 th consecutive day (today thirtieth).

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);
}
