  • Equity to Equity Model: The volume that will be copied is defined according to the Strategy Provider’s and Investor’s Equity, taking into account any allocated amount changes due to the deposits and withdrawals of both parties.

  • Separate Copy Trading Accounts: Every followed strategy is placed automatically in Separate Copy Trading Accounts, giving Investors a clear view of each strategy performance and making it easy for analysis and risk management.

  • Extended Control of Funds:

    • Equity Stop Loss can be applied per strategy;

    • Investors can Increase or decrease funds allocated to a particular strategy;

    • Fees are also calculated for each copying account independently.

  • Flexible Payment Fees: Volume Based Commissions, Performance fees and Management fees can be combined or selected individually.

  • Minimum Investment Amount allows Strategy Providers can set an entry level for the Investors who wish to follow their strategy.

How To Start Copying in cTrader Copy

For your convenience, please find below a step by step guide on how to start copying in cTrader Copy.

  1. To start copying, select a strategy you would like to copy and click Start Copying to the right. Alternatively, click on a strategy and use the Start Copying button to the upper right of the Strategy profile page.

  2. The Start Copying form will pop-up.

  1. In the Start Copying form, select your account from the drop-down and specify the amount of funds to allocate from it by typing or using toggles. If only one account is linked to your cTrader ID, then there will be no alternative option for account selection. Make sure that the allocated funds amount is equal to or higher than the Minimum Investment specified below.

    * Note that if your account leverage is lower then the Strategy Provider’s leverage, then there’s a chance that your margin will not be enough to copy all the trades of this strategy and you may reach the Stop Out earlier than the Strategy Provider.
