How do I choose the way of receiving commission?
CopyFX offers you two ways of getting paid for your services when trading on an MT4 account: you may either receive the commission for each profitable transaction copied from your account or receive a fixed percentage of the total profit made by an Investor for all transactions copied during an investment period. The most important thing is that in both cases you do not lose any additional funds from your personal trading account. Also, you have an opportunity to work as a Trader without commission with an MT4/MT5 account and attract new subscribers thanks to considerable competitive advantage (no commission).
