1) Is it correct, that the function of the margin limits settings are basically to minimize downtime and spread costs? Meaning I could in theory disable them and once one account gets a margin call, the EA would close all positions, allowing me to reopen new smaller positions (BUT of course with new spread costs).
2) Are the following settings a good idea?
Both accounts have a margin call at 30% margin level. My goal is to get a "medium" state but no action by the EA yet at 45% margin and to have the EA reduce positions at 35% (giving me some wiggle room).
3) I noticed that being wrong with position sizes is quite expensive, as I pay the spread only to have the positions closed seconds later. Is the following possible to prevent this on a live account: Instead of opening two positions of (for example) 1 lot I just open (for example) 8 positions (4 long and 4 short) of 0.25 lots. Therefore if I miscalculated or misconfigured, the impact is less moneywise. is this a good idea? Will the EA be able to manage all positions nonetheless?
