Using Forex Tester to test cryptocurrency trading

#1 Postby jasont » Sun Jan 13, 2019 9:14 pm

Is it possible to mimic in Forex Tester the way that the Kraken exchange calculates used margin? What would be the leverage setting in the symbol properties for 5x leverage? I tried setting various numbers in the leverage box but Forex Tester's calculation is nowhere close to Kraken's calculation.

Hello,

Can you please send any example of Kraken's calculation?

For example, send a screenshot of your account history (you can send it to us by email support@forextester.com) so we can check what profit your orders have and can calculate the values which are used in this platform.
