The lot size calculation is divided into 2 types, as following.

Fixed
If you select Fixed on the Initial Lots Type, then the lot size will be fetched from Initial Lots directly. Note that Initial Lots is considering the minimum lot size and maximum lot size of your current account. If you set less than the minimum or more than the maximum, it will adjust the lot size accordingly.

Dynamic
If you select Dynamic on the Initial Lots Type, then the lot size will be calculated, hence the value can be anything between the minimum lot size until the maximum lot size of your current account.

Lot Size = base x multiplier

base is from Inital Lots Calculation Source. If the value is Balance, then base is equal to balance. If the value is Equity, then base is equal to equity.
While multiplier is from Initial Lots Multiplier.

Example:
You have balance of $5000 and equity $4900 considering that you still have floating orders. You have set your Initial Lots Multiplier to 0.01. For example, your broker's max lot size is 100.

Scenario 1
You set the Initial Lots Type to Dynamic and set the Initial Lots Calculation Source to Balance. Your lot size now is $5000 x 0.01 = 50 lots.
Scenario 2
You set the Initial Lots Type to Dynamic and set the Initial Lots Calculation Source to Equity. Your lot size now is $4900 x 0.01 = 49 lots.
Scenario 3
For example, your broker's max lot size is 25, then in Scenario 1 and Scenario 2 will always give you 25 as the lot size.
