These are automatic triggers that will be activated when price reaches this specified price point.

You will need to have the symbol chart in focused opened throughout.

For example, if you were to risk 1% of your account, on a single symbol, you can split this 1% into 3 entries. e.g. (50% x 1%) + (25% x 1%) + (25% x 1%) = 100% x 1%

Why is a trade not executing?

If the EA prompts that it is unable to open a trade, please go to the "Experts" tab in the MT "Toolbox" window and review what caused the error.

Kindly also check the input settings by pressing F7 and look into adjusting Risk Management settings e.g. Lot type, risk% etc.

Why do I get 6 as a result when I entered 0.6 in the input settings?

This depends on your Windows language and your keyboard profile.

Try replacing the full-stop with a comma and check if it works. e.g. use "0,6" instead of "0.6"

If Quantum Keys encounters any errors, a pop-up will appear within the MT terminal.
