    It would be nice to have this EA trade higher lots but it never does, I enabled money management and set the lot size to a higher amount but it is still trading 0.10 lots. If this modification is made it would be good to have a maximum lot size parameter as well, because when money management is used it is useful to limit the risk this way even if the account size is large enough to handle trading high lot sizes.

    Also, may I add that, without the EA using a complete trade method with some rules for entries and possibly more rules for exits then it will inevitibly make unprofitable trades because it trade many time on each candle instead of trading just once per signal - issued. Perhaps these modifications would be best made and used in the xpMA ZZ Lauer EA.

    I set max trade from 100 down to 1 now, so hope this will ensure only one trade is made at any one time, my concern though is that it may execute orders at any time during the signal instead of at the beginning. Other than this the only way forward would be to make the EA into a complete trade method.

    For the MM issue, it is certainly due to your broker that doesn't accept micro lots (0.01).

    I know some that tested this EA have given up on it but not me. I now have better results by changing the default settings. See the attached statement since the change was made.

    Default Can you translate the Alert message?

    I get

    DT-ZigZag: Текущий таймфрейм должен быть меньше чем

    when there is an alert.
    Can this be translated into English?

    More than likely, the ZigZag indicator repainted.
