    How to Invest in Strategies


    Investing in Fondex cTrader Copy strategies is pretty straightforward. The only thing you need to do is to cTrader ID and you as soon as you have created your demo or dive account, you can start investing in strategies, both from cTrader Web and cTrader Mobile. Some strategies offer the option to follow them using demo accounts as well, so that you can test the strategy in real conditions. Below we will explain how you can start following strategies in cTrader Web.


    There are two types of strategies in cTrader Copy, demo and live. Demo strategies are provided by demo accounts, they have a blue button to start copying and they can be copied for free. On the other hand, live strategies are provided by live accounts, the button to start copying is green and it states the fees the strategy provider is charging his followers.



    Before you start following a live strategy, it is important to understand the types of fees you will be requested to pay. These are the following


    • M - Management Fee in percentage, which is the annual percentage of Investor's Equity calculated daily and paid at the end of each month.

    • P - Performance Fee in percentage, which applies to the net profit using a high-water mark model and is paid at the end of each month.

    • V - Volume Fee in USD, which is based on the volume traded while copying the strategy and charged for opening and closing each position.


    To start copying a strategy just click on the green/blue button. 



    After you do that, the Start Copying form will pop up 



    Here you can select the account that will follow the strategy, as well as the amount you want to invest. Please make sure you read all the terms and conditions before pressing the Start Copying button.


    As soon as you press on the Start Copying button, you will see your followers subaccount created under your main account on the right.



    When copying a strategy, a Copy Trading Account can still be managed. All the options are available from the Copy Trading Account Settings button to the right of the Copy Trading Account preview. You can dynamically add or remove funds from it, set or remove Stop Equity Loss, or just stop copying.


    An important feature is the option to set an equity stop loss, that allows you to exit the strategy as soon as a predefined equity level is reached.


    To set Equity Stop Loss, click Settings and select Set Equity Stop Loss from the drop-down. 



    The Set Equity Stop Loss form will pop-up. Specify the Equity Stop Loss Level - once the equity drops to this level, the Copy Trading Account will stop copying the strategy and close all open positions.



    After copying is stopped, all the funds of the copying account will be automatically transferred to the main account. You can type the required amount, use toggles, or use the slider.
