Copy Trading Service Description
Copy trading is popular with traders who lack expertise in a specific market and those who have limited time to commit to trading. Here, we explain what copy trading is and how it works.
What is copy trading?
Copy trading is a branch of social trading, where one trader’s positions are copied by another trader’s account when they are opened or closed. This can be either automatic or manual – and it’s up to an individual to decide how they would like to approach copy trading.
Before you start copy trading, it’s important that you have carried out your own analysis on a position or particular market before you commit real capital to it. Remember that even if you are following the methods of an experienced trader, your capital is still at risk.
Copy trading works by relying on social networks and social trading systems. When one trader opens a position, they can broadcast this information to other traders on the network, who can then decide whether they want to open the same position – or their automated trading systems can do it without additional input from the trader.
