copy trading 101

What is copy trading?

Copy trading is a form of portfolio management done by our professional analysts. Our goal is to help you find other traders and analysts that have a track record you would like to emulate. The process of copy trading allows you to completely monitor strategies of other successful analysts. Copy trading can be useful for both experienced and inexperienced traders who don’t have the time necessary to follow the market themselves. Generally, it is focused on short-term trading, in particular day-trading and swing-trading strategies, but there are several different strategies that are used to generate revenue. While copy trading can be lucrative, there are also risks involved, and traders should remember that past results are not a guarantee of future returns. Finally, copy trading will allow you to diversify your portfolio. This means that as trader, using multiple ways to make money in the markets. Instead of putting all of your capital into one position, asset or strategy, you can use multiple trading strategies that benefit each individual market. When copy trading, you should consider using a few different traders to copy.

Invest money , not time.

Is copy trading profitable ?

Copy trading can result in high profits and returns over time . A major risk you might encounter while copy trading is the market risk (Fast Market Manipulations). Also, if the strategy used by the chosen analyst is unsuccessful, both you and the analyst lose money. If the strategy is successful, you will both make money. Please check the table below for the break-even points after choosing your desired subscription.

How much should you invest ?
The golden rule in (trading/investing) is “do not invest more than you can afford to lose”. And this is the first factor that must be taken into  account and consideration when you decide to invest in copy trading. Other factors include the historic win rate of the analyst that you wish to copy, past results do not guarantee the same results for future gain.
Let’s have a look at Cons’s and Wilson’s copy trading accounts for some insight.

Cons’s account : Copy Trading with $250

Started with $250 in his futures account. Payed $75 (service fee). So. was left with $175 to trade with. To break even, Cons had to make $75 (service fee).  After that came profit ( results will differ from day to day) . You must keep in mind the bigger the amount of exposed margin, the easier it will be to break-even.

Wilson’s account: Copy Trading with $500

Started with $500 in his futures account, after paying a subscription fee, left him with $425. To break even using a larger port Wilson will break-even faster than Cons. But keep in mind, this still requires a number of good trades and Wilson took a greater risk than Cons.

Margin Cap 
Futures trading attracts more traders to spot markets making the market more liquid, or in other words less volatile, and  the spot price of a commodity influences the futures price, bigger portfolios may have a bigger impact. That impact may affect other traders. In order to protect profitability, we separate traders by margin , also limiting the maximum margin that is allowed for copy trading by the platform. This helps protect smaller portfolios while also maintaining a well-balanced system.
Copy Trading comes in three different tiers, each with a maximum amount of margin available for copy trading (see pricing for details).
  • Tier 1: $2.000 Margin Cap
  • Tier 2: $5.000 Margin Cap
  • Tier 3: $10.000 Margin Cap
The margin cap is the maximum amount of margin in your account that is considered for trading. For example, the analyst takes a trade with 2% of their margin. A Tier 1 account with $5000 of margin, but only the Tier 1 limit of $2000 is considered for trading making it 2% of $2000 = $40 and that is the margin  allocated to open the position.
When your account balance is below your tier’s cap, your entire account balance is considered. 
Break even requirements

Break even requirements are shown in the table below. The total capital is your starting capital for each month. The tier-based margin cap determines your monthly subscription fee. The initial margin is the Total Capital – Monthly Subscription Fee.
