What is ForexCopy

ForexCopy is a service provided by InstaForex that allows you to duplicate orders of Traders even when you are away from your trading terminal. It takes just a few minutes to choose a Trader and set up automatic copying of the chosen Trader’s activity. Alternatively, it takes the same few minutes to set up an account for others to be able to copy trades from you.

One of the advantages of the ForexCopy system is its reliability. The Follower have a measure of control over the situation, as the money stays on their accounts. They can customize the settings and even manually cancel copied orders if they seem potentially unprofitable. The account and funds are under the control of the ForexCopy Followers who can choose to unsubscribe from the Trader at any moment.

Before we begin, we will refer to:

  • Client is an individual or a company that concluded the corresponding Client Agreement with the Company and registered a live trading account.
  • Follower is a client who registered as a Follower for copying deals of other Traders.
  • Trader is a client who registered as the Trader account in the ForexCopy system. The trading activity on the Trader’s account serves as a signal for trades to be copied on the Follower’s account.

Here are a few important points you should take into consideration before copying:

  • Only USD accounts can be registered in ForexCopy.
  • The minimum account balance for copying trades is 10 USD.
  • The maximum number of Traders you can copy simultaneously is unlimited.
  • The maximum amount that can be involved in copying deals of a single Trader is unlimited.
  • The minimum amount for a copied trade is 4 USD; trades below this amount are not opened.

If you close a copied trade manually then:

  • If the deal is profitable then a commission is paid to the Trader.
  • If the deal is unprofitable then commission is paid based on subscription conditions.
  • Subscription will remain active until the Follower or the Trader cancels it from the Client Cabinet.
ForexCopy Traders

The innovative ForexCopy system by InstaForex invites traders to register with the system and provide a paid service of copying their trades to Followers. By giving access to the copying, ForexCopy Traders receive a commission per every copied trade or a commission per every day of subscription.

To become a ForexCopy Trader, open a live account on any InstaForex server and register with the ForexCopy system as a trader. After the registration, set the terms of copying for your Followers and select one of the following payment options

Commission per profitable trade:

  • commission per trade is paid by the ForexCopy Follower for profitable deals only;
  • commission per 0.01 lot is paid by the ForexCopy Follower for 0.01 lot of profitable deals only;
  • profit share is paid by the ForexCopy Follower for profitable deals only.

Commission per lots traded:

  • commission per 0.01 lot copied to the ForexCopy Follower’s account and closed with either profit or loss. This type of commission is charged for both profitable and loss-making deals and is paid by Followers at the end of the day;
  • 0.5 pip commission per 1 lot traded by every ForexCopy Follower. This type of commission is charged for both profitable and loss-making deals. Importantly, InstaForex pays this commission, thus enabling ForexCopy traders to make their project free of charge for Followers and boost its popularity.

Commission per subscription day:

  • the commission per subscription day is paid daily, excluding the days when Forex market is closed for holidays (December 25th and January 1st) or weekends (Saturday and Sunday).

After registration in the ForexCopy system, your trading account is added to the public monitoring list that is visited by thousands of potential Followers who search for top investment projects every day. The ForexCopy system does not limit the number of Followers the Trader may have: they may provide their deal for copying to tens, hundreds or even thousands of Followers worldwide. The copying system is fully automated and does not require any additional actions from the Trader thus enabling them to concentrate on Forex trading.

ForexCopy Traders have an opportunity to copy deals of other ForexCopy Traders by selecting them from the monitoring list. Linking a group of traders whose orders are copied in an integrated manner, a Follower may cover possible losses or join a group of other Followers and copy deals of one Trader on a smaller scale. A Trader may combine different trading methods, technical and fundamental analyses by copying orders of other Traders, analyzing their strategies and averaging the risks.

Depending on a payment option, ForexCopy Traders receive a commission by the end of the day or after the subscription is cancelled. The Trader may set a commission per subscription day and receive a commission every day. If Traders set up a commission per trade, they get commissions for every profitable trade after their Follower cancel the subscription. In the latter case a commission is calculated on the basis of the trading result (total profit and total loss) obtained within the period of subscription to a ForexCopy trader. The commission per lots traded is credited daily on those days when deals are copied to the Follower’s account. All commissions are paid automatically with no additional actions required. Both the Trader and the Follower may monitor a current amount of commission to be paid online.

ForexCopy Followers

The ForexCopy system by InstaForex provides investors with a wide range of financial services. Using a revolutionary approach to investments in ForexCopy projects and reconsidering the basic principles of payment settlements between a Trader and a Follower, InstaForex has developed the ForexCopy system, an unprecedented service in online brokerage.

  • The ForexCopy system ensures online copying of orders opened by top Traders. The risk of loss can be reduced by copying trades of several traders and choosing a combination of their strategies based on technical and fundamental analyses.
  • ForexCopy followers do not transfer their funds to ForexCopy Traders’ accounts. The money remains on the Follower’s trading account under their control. Therefore, the Follower will not have to request a chargeback from the Trader’s account.
  • Followers can adjust the copying ratio. This option may prove to be efficient when the Follower wants to reduce the risks of 1 to 1 copying ratio or when the Follower does not have enough money to copy all trades.
  • The ForexCopy system allows Followers to choose which currency pairs to copy. This parameter is set by the Follower when subscribing to a particular Trader. The Follower can always change the list of trading instruments without canceling the subscription.
  • When adjusting the extended subscription parameters, the Follower can set the trades volume range. The Lot Range option allows Followers to copy only trades that fall into the selected range (minimum and maximum volume). Besides, the Followers can set the parameters when maximum and minimum volumes are exceeded. When the Fixed Lot parameter is used, all trades of a fixed volume are copied from the Trader’s account.
  • ForexCopy Followers pay commissions for copying of either all deals or only for profitable ones depending on the commission type set by the ForexCopy Trader. If they pay for profitable deals only, the profit should exceed the commission amount paid by the Follower to the Trader for copying orders. The Follower is not obliged to pay for losing trades. This type of commission favours Followers and protects their interests.
  • If the Follower selects a Trader who charges daily commission, then they should pay for every day of subscription except for the days when Forex market is closed for holidays (December 25th and January 1st) or weekends (Saturday and Sunday). ForexCopy traders can set this type of commission calculation based on the strategy they use.
  • The trades copying can be free for the followers if the ForexCopy trader sets the commission per traded lots, which is paid by InstaForex.

To start copying trades, the follower needs to open a live account on any InstaForex server and register with the ForexCopy system as a follower. After the registration, the follower can look through the monitoring list and copying terms, which traders set to provide their services. The follower also gets an opportunity to set subscription parameters for every trader by selecting currency pairs and the copying ratio.

Subscription parameters are set for every trader individually and can be changed without canceling the subscription. In case the Trader changes the payment options, this move will not affect followers, who have already subscribed to this trader. The system protects the Followers against any corrections made by the trader at his sole discretion and guarantees that copying terms accepted by the follower will be met.

The system is fully automated and does not require any additional actions from the follower. After the trader has approved the subscription, the follower may have to wait for about 15 minutes until the ForexCopy system is ready to copy trader’s orders. Every follower can monitor the statistics on trading and account balance in Client Cabinet.

Depending on a payment option, the trader receives a commission by the end of the trading day or after the subscription has been cancelled. The trader may set the daily commission and receive a commission every day, or a commission per trade and receive a commission for every profitable trade after his follower cancels the subscription. All commission types are credited automatically with no additional actions required. Both the trader and the follower can monitor the current amount of commission to be paid online.

Followers of the ForexCopy system can upgrade their profile and become traders with a right to copy orders of other traders. To enable this option, they choose the corresponding parameter in the Profile. Besides, an account of an upgraded follower will be included in the monitoring list of the ForexCopy system.

Trades Copying

The ForexCopy system is designed to enable one trader to copy deals of other Traders. Every user of the ForexCopy system may follow the trading strategies that suit them best by selecting Traders in the public monitoring list and copying their trades.

Any ForexCopy user may copy trades of other users and/or provide their trades for copying.

The ForexCopy system has an extended list of the payment options. The ForexCopy Traders receive a commission for allowing one or more ForexCopy Followers to copy their trades. A commission per copied trade, a commission per subscription day and a trade profit share may be charged. If the Followers choose the latter, they pay only for profitable copied trades.

Besides, a ForexCopy Trader can make his services free of charge for the Followers if the Trader sets the commission by traded lots by the Follower, that is compensated by Instaforex.

There are no restrictions on a number of copied deals of several Traders: the Followers may adjust the system to copy all their trades.

Any InstaForex client may register in the ForexCopy system and subscribe to as many Traders as they wants. There are no special restrictions on registration in this system except for one: only USD accounts are allowed to be registered in ForexCopy. Moreover, clients can join the system for free.

Terms of copying:

  • Only those trades will be opened in the Follower’s account that were opened by the Trader after the Follower subscribed to him or her.
  • The opening and/or closing prices of copied trades on Follower’s account may differ from the opening and/or closing prices on the Trader’s account. It may occur due to the technical complexity of ForexCopy system which replicates trades on Follower’s account with max. delay up to 2 minutes.
  • The system ensures copying of trades from the Trader`s account to the Follower`s account in real time with the maximum admissible delay of 2 minutes.
  • Orders that remain opened for less than two minutes may fail to be copied from the Trader`s account to the Follower`s account.
  • Trades will be opened in the Follower`s account with the market rates available at the time of copying and not the rates at which the original trades of Trader were opened.
  • All of the copied ForexCopy Trader’s actions will automatically be duplicated in the ForexCopy Follower’s account.
  • The same Stop Loss and Take Profit is set on the copied trades as on the original trades of ForexCopy Trader.
  • If a ForexCopy Trader changes the Stop Loss or Take Profit settings of the open trade, the aforementioned alterations will be adjusted to the trade copied by a ForexCopy Follower with an admissible delay tah is up to 2 minutes on average.
  • The proportions of the copied trades are calculated based on the copying ratio which is set by the ForexCopy Follower while subscribing to the ForexCopy Trader.
  • The ForexCopy Follower can close a specific copied trade without unsubscribing from the ForexCopy Trader account.

The subscription to copy trades in the ForexCopy system shall be cancelled if:

  • The Trader cancels subscription by clicking "Unsubscribe" in Client Cabinet;
  • The Follower cancels subscription by clicking "Unsubscribe" in Client Cabinet;
  • The Follower`s account lacks enough funds to pay a commission to the Trader;
  • The equity in the Follower`s account is not enough for copying trades of the Trader;

Payment Options

The ForexCopy system by InstaForex allows investors to copy the trades of top ForexCopy Traders. Why is this system interesting for mature traders? Providing their service, ForexCopy Traders receive a commission for copied profitable trades, a commission for lots traded, or a commission for every subscription day.

There are several ways to reward the ForexCopy traders, who provide their trades for copying to the Followers. Registering with the system, a Trader selects one of the following payment options:

  • daily commission (the Followers are charged with the commission at the end of every trading day except for days off on Forex markets);
  • commission per every trade opened within the ForexCopy subscription;
  • profit share paid by the Followers;
  • commission for the volume of copied trades closed with either profit or loss;
  • free copying (the Trader receives the commission per lots traded from the broker).

The ForexCopy Traders set up payment options at registering in the system. Each payment option is set individually for every ForexCopy subscription: one Trader can receive the commission from the Followers in various ways: per one day, per one trade or profit share.

The opportunity to choose and change the payment options for ForexCopy subscription allows for creating highly convenient conditions for both members of the system: someone values the opportunity to pay after the profit is derived (profit share payment), others prefer to pay per every trade. The freedom of choice and the freedom of offer are the components of the ForexCopy system success, which make it attractive for Traders who strive to earn both from their own trading and from rendering the service of copying their trades.

Risks Associated with Copy Trading

Please note that ForexCopy is associated with various risks and the Follower is urged to carefully read and consider the following risks before registering with the ForexCopy system:

  • ForexCopy features is highly speculative, therefore you could sustain significant losses.
  • ForexCopy involves automated trading execution which means that trades are opened and closed in the Follower`s account without the Follower`s manual intervention.
  • In making a decision to copy a specific Trader or Traders the Follower has assessed his/her entire financial situation including financial commitments.
  • The Company, its affiliates, their employees, and agents are not investment or financial advisers. If the ForexCopy Follower makes investment decisions in reliance on the information that is available on the Company and affiliated party`s websites or as a result of the use of the ForexCopy features, the Follower does so at their own risk. The Company, its affiliates, their employees, and its agents shall not be liable for any losses that the Follower may sustain.
  • The ForexCopy Follower should not make any investment decision without first conducting his/her own research. The Follower is solely and exclusively responsible for determining whether any investment, the strategy, or any other product or service is appropriate or suitable for him/her based on the Follower`s investment objectives and personal and financial situation.
  • If the ForexCopy Follower opens additional trades in his/her account, modifies or cancels an order generated by ForexCopy, the Follower may achieve a materially different result than that of the ForexCopy Trader whom the Follower subscribed to.
  • The ForexCopy Follower shall agree that if by any technical reason their subscription to ForexCopy is stopped by means other than un-subscription done by them or their ForexCopy Trader, the Company is not accountable for opened trades which were left open following such un-subscription. The Follower accepts that probability of such trades left opened may be profitable or equally result in a loss and in case the Followers do not close them manually (including cases when they were not informed that subscription was stopped because of technical or organizational issue) they accept the above and any risks arising from continuing to have the trades open.
  • ForexCopy is a technically sophisticated service, but particular bugs may occur in the future from time to time with relatively high probability. The Follower confirms that ForexCopy doesn`t make decisions about trades itself, but only transmits information about trades from one account to another. Thus, in situations where transmittance is done with error (or was not done because of errors) is accepted by the Follower as a random circumstance which doesn`t impact mathematically the probability of him/her getting a profit or loss and thus can`t be considered as a reason to claim from the company any unreserved profits or restore any losses received in excess comparing to situation when such transmittance of information was done without error.
  • The ForexCopy Trader`s deals (with respect to any of our financial instruments) are copied proportionally in accordance with the ratio set by the ForexCopy Follower when subsribing to this Trader. Trades below the minimum lot range are not opened.All copied deals are modified and/or closed automatically on the ForexCopy followers` accounts if and when the Trader modifies/closes the deals for whatsoever reason, without providing any further notice and without any action on the Follower`s part. The Follower should be able and prepared to bear the loss of all his investment when using ForexCopy system. The Follower is fully responsible for any losses he/she sustains as a result of our automatic execution of instructions generated as a result of the utilizing of any of the ForexCopy features.
  • The past performance statistics appearing on the Company and affiliated party`s websites and applications are not indicative of future results and should be considered as hypothetical. It is important to understand that the past performance is not a guarantee of the future performance. No representation or guarantee is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown. There is also no guarantee that a risk score of a copied Trader shall not be higher in fact. When assessing the content, portfolio, financial performance statistics, opinions or recommendations of the registered Trader, the Follower should not assume that the Trader is unbiased, independent or qualified to provide financial information or opinions. The Company does not guarantee the placement of any orders including the placing of stop orders such as the stop loss. Therefore, the Company does not guarantee that any trade will be executed at the order price/stop loss percentage and the Follower may lose more than the original amount used to copy deals of the Trader.
  • The past performance should be considered as a hypothetical performance result. Hypothetical performance results have inherent limitations. No representation or guarantee is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to past performance. The actual percentage gains/losses experienced by Follower will vary depending on many factors, including but not limited to: the initial account balances (including deposits and withdrawals), market action, the Follower`s account settings and the actual performance the Trader to whom the Follower is subscribed to.
  • No aspect of the information on ForexCopy system made available on the Company and affiliated parties` websites is intended to provide investment, tax or other financial-related advice of any kind.
