Choosing the right strategy

Understanding the information the strategy page provides can be very useful in making the right decision about which strategy you should follow.

The strategy page provides a host of information about the strategy and the strategy provider himself. You can find details like strategy provider name, date of registration, strategy description, important indicators about strategy performance, statistics, trading instruments, orders, trading period, and commission.

Copying your first strategy

To start investing in strategies, simply follow these steps.

  1. Log into the Social Trading app.
  2. Browse and select a strategy that appeals to you.
  3. Assess the statistics of the strategy.
  4. To copy this strategy, tap Start Copying.
  5. Choose an amount you wish to invest with.
  6. Congratulations, you are now copying a strategy.

How commission works

When you copy a strategy, you are able to see the level of commission that strategy uses. As a strategy starts to become profitable, investors pay a certain percentage of their earnings to the strategy provider at the end of that trading period.

No commission will be rendered for loss and any profits made by a Strategy Provider subsequently will not garner them commission until that profit exceeds the amount lost previously.

Trading commission is calculated at the end of a typical trading period and takes a number of aspects into calculation. Here is the technical formula that is used to calculate commission:

Investment_Commission (USD) = (Equity+sum(Paid_Commission) - Invested_amount) * %commission - sum(Paid_Commission)

  • Equity - current investment equity.
  • sum(Paid_Commission) - total paid commission till date for the particular investment.
  • Invested_amount - investment’s starting balance.
  • %commission - commission rate set by the strategy provider

All results from the formula are rounded down.
