You can also go the Trader's Card right from here, all you have to do is to click on his unique name.

In addition to that, you can go to the Trader's "thread" on the Forum, where you can find more detailed information about the offer, ask questions, and read other users' comments.
You can subscribe to the Trader's offer right from here, by clicking on "Invest". You won't need to make any additional actions, such as to look for the Traders in the Rating and go to his Card. The basic principle here is "I came, I saw, I subscribed".
And what is the basis for this choice? The parameters provided here can be considered as the key information, which may help you to weigh all pros and cons before making the decision. Some Investors may be attracted by the high profitability of the offer along with low risk, others pay attention to the profit of the Investors subscribed to the offer, and the rest may prefer the Traders on commission. The main point here is that you'll have the opportunity not just to choose, but to make your decision reasonable.
