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
