Hello, I've 3 Spreadsheets for Trading, each on a separate graph. All on the same Ticker: MNQ. I've defined Send Order to "NO" on each of these 3 spreadsheets.
I've created a fourth Spreadsheet for Trading where the buy signal is OR(BuySystem1, BuySystem2, BuySystem3). Same for Short. I've defined max position as 5 in the 4th Spreadsheet. In the Trade Window, I've defined quantity as 5. The system (#4) takes trades with Stop Loss and Target as expected, but with a Quantity of 1 and not 5. What did I do wrong? How can I make him send orders for 5 instead of 1 please? THANK YOU.

When using the Spreadsheet System for Trading study, the quantity is set in J26, not on the Trade Window.

You need to set the order quantity with this Sheet cell:
