Copy (Social) trading is available for both traders and investors and can be provided via 4 methods.

Type 1: Exact Copying

Full Size Copying 1 For 1

If an investor uses this type of social trading, the volume of a copied trade is equal to the volume in a trader's account.

EXAMPLE: If the trader opened a deal for 2 lots, a trade of 2 lots will be copied onto the investor’s account.

Type 2: Fixed Size Copying

If an investor uses this type of social trading, the volume of a copied trade is always identical to the volume pre-set in copy settings.

EXAMPLE: If an investor sets a "Copy fixed size" of 3 lots and the trader opens 6 lots, 3 lots will remain open on the investor’s account.

Type 3: Percentage Copying

If an investor uses this type of social trading, the volume of a copied trade is identical to a % of the volume of the respective trade on the trader’s account.

EXAMPLE: an investor sets 50% and the trader opens 6 lots, then the trade will open 3 lots on the investor’s account. The investor can set from 1% to 10000%. The percentage step is 1%

Type 4: Fixed Share Copying

If an investor uses this type of social trading, the volume of a copied trade is defined by the copy trader’s equity ratio. The volume of the investor’s equity used can be defined in the copying settings.

Investors should have equal funds to the current amount of funds in the trader’s deal at the moment of copying to use “All Equity”.

The volume of the trade can be calculated via the formula:

Trade volume in the trader's account * copy equity / trader's equity = trade volume in the investor's account

EXAMPLE: Equity on the trader's and investor’s account is $10 000 and $5 000 respectively

If an investor sets copy equity at 2 500, trades will be copied onto his/her account with a coefficient of 2 500/10 000 = 0.25 (25% of the volume).

If an investor sets copy equity at 6 000, trades will be copied with a coefficient of 6 000/10 000 =0,6 (60% of the volume).

If the investor uses all equity as copy equity, trades will be copied with a coefficient of 20 000/10 000 =2 (200% of the volume of the trader’s trade).
