Will an MT4 script recognise the difference between buying fx lots and spread betting bet sizes ?


Recommended Posts

I am just wondering if i use a purchased  MT4 script or EA to trade FX on my MT4 "spreadbetting" account which bets @ 1 pound or 2 pounds a point rather than the usual 0.1 or 0.2 "FX lots" , will the script recognize this and  successfully place a trade ?

asking because FX lots are usually USD and we can bet in pounds in the UK, if we choose  .

1 = buying 100,000 of the currency in FX lots ( 10 dollars for every pip movement )

where 1 = only 10,000 notional value in spreadbetting ( 1 gbp / dollar for every pip movement )

also asking because there I noticed  a stark difference in the numerical format of gbp/usd on FX versus spreadbetting . the decimal point is in a completely different place 1686735165_ScreenShot2021-02-17at5_28_42PM.png.a59aa462b91645cb171e22209f8bdcae.pngspread bet amount is 13849   for GBPUSD


where as 1378029930_ScreenShot2021-02-17at5_28_09PM.png.66b38b7b24fa0010812435b366a1dab8.png FX is 1.3849 for GBPUSD


and theres obviously betting in GBP rather than USD ( or jpy etc etc ) , which surely must get mentioned somewhere in the script

    • Children who have recovered from Covid-19 may experience a distorted sense of smell afterwards which could affect the foods they will eat, according to experts in the U.K. “Parosmia” — when people experience strange and often unpleasant smell distortions — is relatively common after a Covid infection, with 250,000 adults in the U.K. estimated to have suffered parosmia as a result of having the coronavirus. Experts say it could be a reason why children who have recovered from Covid might find it hard to eat foods they once loved. Instead of smelling a lemon, for example, someone suffering from parosmia may smell rotting cabbage, or chocolate may smell like gasoline. Leading U.K. smell expert Carl Philpott, a professor at the University of East Anglia’s Norwich Medical School, and charity Fifth Sense released guidance on Tuesday to help parents and healthcare professionals better recognize the disorder and distinguish it from “fussy eating.” “Parosmia is thought to be a product of having less smell receptors working which leads to only being able to pick up some of the components of a smell mixture,’” Philpott commented Tuesday. “We know that an estimated 250,000 adults in the U.K. have suffered parosmia as a result of a Covid infection but in the last few months, particularly since Covid started sweeping through classrooms last September, we’ve become more and more aware that it’s affecting children too.” He added: “In many cases the condition is putting children off their food, and many may be finding it difficult to eat at all.” I’m hoping this is the transition variant, says Dr. Ashish Jha Philpot noted that the condition hadn’t really been recognized by medical professionals until now, with many assuming that children were being difficult eaters without realizing there is an underlying problem. “For some children - and particularly those who already had issues with food, or with other conditions such as autism – it can be really difficult. I expect there are a lot of parents at their wits end and really worried,” he said. Fifth Sense Chairman and founder Duncan Boak said the charity had received anecdotal evidence from parents that children are “really struggling” with their food after Covid. “We’ve heard from some parents whose children are suffering nutritional problems and have lost weight, but doctors have put this down to just fussy eating.  We’re really keen to share more information on this issue with the healthcare profession so they’re aware that there is a wider problem here,” Boak said.

    • Japanese Yen Forecast: Brief USD/JPY Rebound as BoJ Squashes Recent Speculation Japanese Yen Price Analysis and News BoJ Alter Inflation Outlook as Expected BoJ Governor Kuroda Recent Speculation, JPY Initially Slips   Overnight, the main highlight had been the Bank of Japan monetary policy meeting, where officials kept policy unchanged, as widely expected, keeping rates at -0.1% and the 10yr JGB yield target at 0%. Much to many market participants expectations following a series of source reports, the Bank stated that the risks to the price outlook were “roughly balanced” from “skewed to the downside”. However, following the decision, Bank of Japan Governor Kuroda squashed recent speculation, by stating that the BoJ is not considering rate hikes at all or tweaking current monetary easing during his remaining term, which ends in April 2023. The initial response saw the Japanese Yen slip a touch, testing 115.00 amid an unwind of traders front-running the recent BoJ speculation. However, with market participants back on yield watch, with the US 10yr at 1.83%, the subsequent pullback across the equity space has supported the Japanese Yen as the US curve continues to flatten. Now with the Bank of Japan risk event passing, the focus will be on the Federal Reserve for USD/JPY. Although, with Fed tightening more or less fully priced in, the fresh impetus for USD buying at a time where positioning is crowded may be harder to come by. Therefore, the early YTD high at 116.30 looks to be intact for now, despite elevated US yields. A reminder that USD/JPY would likely pick up when yields are rising and equities remain stable, however, this has not been the case with US tech among the underperformers since the beginning of the year. Support: 114.23 (55DMA), 113.50 (Jan 14th low) Resistance: 115.00, 115.50 USD/JPY Chart: Daily Time Frame Source: Refinitiv Jan 18, 2022  |  Justin McQueen, Strategist. DailyFX
