We’ll show you an example of how you can take a $10,000 investment and use it to build a diversified copy portfolio. Your portfolio will directly copy all the trades of a range of Popular Investors, who specialise in a wide variety of assets, including stocks, indices, currencies and commodities.

Each Popular Investor has a personal approach to trading and their own proven strategies. You can check their stats, trading history (going back a whole year), risk levels and news feed discussions with other traders and copiers.

Some Tips from our Traders:

– Don’t invest all your account balance in your copy portfolio. Keep some funds in reserve, ready to exploit any sudden trading opportunities or cover any losses.

– Take the time to talk to the Popular Investors who you are thinking about copying – or at least check their News Feeds to see what kind of relationship they have with their copiers.

– Don’t be surprised if the people who you copy make some losses. It’s a natural part of trading. Look at their Stats and try and get an idea of the bigger picture.

– Set the Copy Stop Loss to protect yourself. It will automatically close copy trades that don’t meet your expectations.

Every Social Trader is an Individual!

Social trading and copying isn’t about going with the herd or blindly following someone else’s decisions. It allows for a lot of flexibility, individuality and personal responsibility. Go to our People Discovery page and build your own copy portfolio, based on your goals, your trading budget your risk appetite and your personal schedule!
