MAM - Recommended Configuration Settings

Below is a list of the recommended configuration settings for correct use of the Tradeview MAM plugin:

  • Set the leverage for the sub-accounts to double that of the master account. This may not be applicable in all cases, as not all sub-accounts may have a balance of similar magnitude, but is generally recommended to ensure sub-account trades do not reach stop out before the master when trading in margin call level. To set leverage for an account login to MetaTrader4 Administrator and navigate to the Accounts tab on the left had side. Double click on the account you wish to set and a window will pop-up, leverage is set in the box on the lower left side.
  • Set the minimum lot size for the sub-group and the master account group to the minimum lot size of 0.01. This will ensure that trades opened by the master that are of the minimum lot size will always be allocated to a sub-account. It is recommended to set the minimum lot size for the sub-group and the master group to be of the same value, and the step size for the sub-group and the master group to the same value. To set the minimum lot size or step size for a group login to MetaTrader4 Administrator and navigate to the Groups tab on the left hand side. Double click on the relevant group and navigate to the Securities tab at the top of the pop-up window that appears. Double click on the enabled Securities, the minimum lot size is set in the pop-up window that appears.
  • Disable the sub-accounts from trading. Sub-accounts can be disabled from trading by allocating clients an investor only password, or by un-ticking the trade check box for the relevant securities in the sub-group. If you require client trading to be enabled please contact Tradeview support for further details here.
