When choosing a Trader, you’re recommended to pay attention to the following:
1. Trader’s profitability index. The level of Trader’s professionalism and competence is directly proportional to his/her earnings stability.
2. Trader’s activity. Wise and responsible trader doesn’t leave his/her "workplace" for more than one week.
3. Trader’s trading style. The more aggressive the trader is, the more likely that he/she might lose a considerable part of invested funds.
4. Number of Trader’s subscribers. It indicates the amount of subscribers, who trusts in his/her abilities and consider him/her a reliable partner.
To subscribe your Investor account to the account of some Trader, go to "Traders rating" page in "Investments" section of your Members Area. In the rating table, you can use different filters to find the Traders, who match your criteria better than the others.
You can either subscribe to their accounts immediately by clicking "+" in the particular field (if the Trader specified the subscription mode as "Free") or learn more about them first by clicking their name in the table.
More detailed information about how to subscribe to the Trader can be found on "How to connect to Trader" page.
You can manage your subscriptions in "CopyFX Settings" section of your Members Area, where there is a complete list of all active subscriptions. You may subscribe to several Traders at the same time, as well as unsubscribe from those Traders, who are no longer interesting to you.
More detailed information about how to manage your subscriptions can be found on "Managing the subscription" page.
The commission for the transactions you copied is transferred to the Trader’s account when:
- The investment period specified by the Trader is over. The commission is paid to their account on Saturday at 1:00 AM server time.
- You cancel the subscription. The commission is written off several minutes after the subscription is cancelled.
- You transfer/withdraw funds from your account before the investment period is over. The commission written off several minutes after you perform a balance operation.
After the commission is written off, the rest of your profit remains on your account.
