Types of Copying Forex Trades

How does copying forex transactions work? Copy trades, choosing the most convenient way for you from 4.

Note: for simplicity of understanding, in order not to be confused in terms of “the account to which they copy” and “the account from which they copy” we will call their investor account and the account of the trader, respectively.

1. Copy the full volume of 1 to 1

With this type of copying, the volume of the copied transaction in the investor’s account is equal to the volume of the corresponding transaction in the trader’s account. For example, if a trader opens 5 lots on his account, then a transaction with the same volume of 5 lots is copied to the investor’s account.

2. Fixed copy volume

With this type of copying, the volume of the copied transaction in the investor’s account is always equal to the fixed volume indicated in the lots in the copy settings.

For example, if an investor sets a volume of 2 lots, and a trader opens a transaction with a volume of 5 lots on his account, then a transaction of 2 lots is copied to the investor’s account.

3. Copy% of the volume of each transaction

With this type of copying, the volume of the copied transaction in the investor’s account is% of the volume of the corresponding transaction in the trader’s account.

For example, if an investor sets a copy volume ratio of 50%, and a trader opens a deal with a volume of 5 lots on his account, then a transaction with a volume of 2.5 lots is copied to the investor’s account. The investor can set the ratio from 1% to 10,000% in increments of 1%.

4. Copying in proportion to investor funds

With this type of copying, the volume of the copied transaction in the investor’s account is determined by the ratio of the funds to copy to the funds in the trader’s account. The amount of funds used for copying on the investor’s account is indicated in the corresponding copy settings.

If you select “All funds” as the means for copying, the size of the current funds of the investor’s account at the time of copying the transaction is used.

The transaction opening volume on the investor account is calculated according to the following formula:

Transaction volume on the trader’s account * funds for copying/trader funds = transaction volume on the investor’s account

For example, funds in the trader’s account are $ 5,000, in the investor’s account $ 10,000:

  • If the investor sets a value of 2500 for the “funds for copying” parameter, then transactions are copied to his account with a ratio of 2500/5000 = 0.5 (50% of the trader’s transaction volume).
  • If the investor sets the value of 6000 for the “funds for copying” parameter, then transactions are copied to his account with a ratio of 6000/5000 = 1.2 (120% of the trader’s transaction volume).
  • If the investor sets the value “all means” in the “funds for copying” parameter, then the transactions are copied to his account with a coefficient of 10000/5000 = 2 (200% of the volume of the trader’s transaction).
