Hi,
I try to code my first strategy using MC. Currently I'm struggling a little bit with the logic behind ordersizes, I mean the number of shares/contracts, which I enter a buy/sell orders.
I'm trading forex via MBT.
MC only accepts integer numbers, so the smallest number I can enter is 1 lot.
e.g.
 
Code
buy 1 shares next bar at market;
Then every point change has a value of $10.
I'm wondering, how I can enter e.g. 0.1 lot.
In general it should also be possible to enter the order size as currency value, so for example ...
 
Code
buy 1000 shares next bar at market;
... which would mean, buy a volume of $1000. But how can I tell MC, that I don't mean lot but dollars?

Can anybody help me to understand the options, I have here?
