Automated trading

Automated trading (autotrading) is trading on the currency market using special programs called robots or advisors. Software solutions automate the process, relieve the trader from time-consuming analysis and increase trading efficiency.

MetaTrader 4 Advantages

  • It is very easy to subscribe to a trading signal; it only takes a few clicks. Further processes related to the trading signals go on automatically requiring no participation from you. One minute is enough for a provider of trading signals to enter its signal in a common database and determine a subscription fee.
  • The signal subscription process is maximally simplified and accelerated. No execution of agreements between the subscriber, signal provider and broker is required. All processes take place within the system, which guarantees the accuracy of the performance of the transactions.
  • Performance (copying) of deals goes on with the minimum of delay. If the signals provider and a trader which has subscribed to such signals use the same server, almost no delays in copying deals are expected. But even if participants are on different servers, there will only be minimum delays in performance of deals due to the fact that the MetaTrader Signal servers are located close to the broker servers.

Special features of Trading signals performance

Functioning of the service of trading signals on the MetaTrader platform has a number of features that subscribers and providers of trading signals should be aware of.

  • One trading account can be managed by signals of only one provider at a time. This is done deliberately in order to protect traders from bearing losses.
  • A trading account can be subscribed to only one signal, whilst MQL5.com account may have several subscriptions for different accounts. A trader may have several accounts and each of them can be managed by signals from different providers. All of these subscriptions may be registered at and paid up from a single MQL5.com-account.
  • Subscribers pay a fixed sum monthly or weekly and receive trading signals for this period. There are neither commissions for each deal, nor increasing spreads, nor additional commissions from gained profits.
  • The MQL5.com payment system is used for buying subscriptions. You can top up your account in any way convenient to you via PayPal, WebMoney, bank cards. When buying a subscription to a signal, the funds are transferred from the Subscriber's account to the Provider's account (our commission is 20%) where they are automatically blocked for the subscription period. At the end of the period the funds are unblocked and deposited to the Provider's account. In case of any valid claims, the funds for the current subscription period will be returned to the Subscriber. All operations are carried out within the MQL5.com payment system.
  • The highest quality of execution will be achieved if a Provider and a Subscriber work on the same server. However, this is not a mandatory pre-requisition to copy deals with minimum delays. Delays between receiving the signal and execution of trading operations, which copy it, are minimized. This has been made possible thanks to Signal Servers having cloud architecture and being located all over the world.
 

Possible problems

In some cases, when you try to synchronize your deals with deals of the provider you may come across a warning message:

  • For example, you have an open trading position or order on your account. In this case, before synchronization of your account with the account of the signals provider you will be asked to close the open position and delete the existing order or to agree to automatically close them. If they are closed automatically, all positions unrelated to the Provider’s signals provider will be closed at the current market price, and orders will be deleted.
  • If a profit on the Provider's account is positive, you will be offered to wait for better market conditions. This will ensure that you enter the market at a price that is not worse than the Provider’s. You can either wait for better market conditions, or, having accepted the corresponding risks, synchronize immediately.
  • We strongly recommend that you put off synchronization till more favorable conditions arise. By agreeing to an immediate synchronization, you increase your risks, and the result of using signals can be unpredictable. Please note that all information regarding making a decision on synchronization is shown in the logs of the terminal.

cTrader Copy

 

Trader Copy is Spotware's new copy trading service which has been tailored for investors and traders alike.

The platform offers extreme simplicity, advanced risk management and comprehensive strategy profiles where providers may display their performance and where investors may select their favourites. cTrader Copy now replaces cMirror and it can be accessed in the side menu, as an app integrated into cTrader, for added convenience.

 

 

General Copying Logic

 

The general logic of cTrader Copy’s actual copying mechanism is that a trader can allocate a certain amount of his funds to connect to a certain trading strategy to automatically copy all the steps within this strategy. The allocated funds from an Investor’s account are considered as a Copy Trading Account, a separate trading account under the same cTID that can be used only for copying the specific strategy.

In fact, one can understand the copying idea as investing the funds in the trading strategies on the defined conditions. A Strategy Provider executes trades from his trading account, and all the followers (Investors) connected to this strategy automatically copy all the trades generating their equity depending on their Copy Trading Accounts equity and leverage, based on the Equity-to-Equity model.

 

 

Exceptions

 

When you start following a strategy, all the existing open positions of the strategy will be opened for your Copy Trading Account with the current market rates, and all the strategy actions will start being copied. In some cases, the copying mechanism may undergo some exceptions. For example:

  • In cases when after calculation based on the Equity-to-Equity ratio the volume of a trade performed in a copied strategy is lower than the minimum trading volume allowed by the follower’s broker, the trade size will be defined based on the step allowed by the broker.

  • In cases when the volume of a trade performed in a copied strategy is higher than the maximum ticket size allowed by the broker, then no position will be opened.

  • In cases when the market is closed for a certain symbol trading in a strategy, the position for such a symbol will be open only when the market is opened.

  • In case of insufficient margin on your account, the position will not be copied.

 

Copying Strategies

Demo strategies are marked with the blue Demo icon and are always Free to copy as they deal with the virtual money only.

Live strategies that are marked with the green Live icon, can be Free as well, but mostly, copying them intends trading with the real money and the fees from the Strategy Providers will be charged. Before you start copying a Live strategy, check the fees information which can be found on the Start Copying button.


 

 

  • 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.

 

 

  1. To start copying, select a strategy you would like to copy and click Start Copying to the right. Alternatively, click on a strategy and use the Start Copying button to the upper right of the Strategy profile page.

  2. The Start Copying form will pop-up. In the Start Copying form select your account from the drop-down and specify the amount of funds to allocate from it by typing or using toggles. If only one account is linked to your cTrader ID, then there will be no alternative option for account selection. Make sure that the amount of funds allocated is equal to or higher than the Minimum Investment specified below.

     

    Hover the cursor over the Information icons to learn the detailed information on the Fees and Conditions before you start.

    When done, confirm that you agree to cTrader Terms and Conditions and click Start Copying.

  3. Now the allocated funds from your account are converted into a Copy Trading Account and you have started copying the strategy. All the open positions of the strategy have opened for you with the current market rates. The Copy Trading Account is now displayed in the Accounts list under the account you have allocated the funds from.

    The green indicator next to the strategy name in the Copy Trading Account preview means that the strategy is being copied.

    When you stop copying, the indicator becomes orange. Also, the current equity and All Time ROI percentage are displayed in the Copy Trading Account preview.

    Click on a Copy Trading Account preview to proceed to the Investment profile or use the Settings icon to the right to manage it.

    The Copy Trading Accounts can be filtered by their status (Active, Stopped, or Removed by Provider). Click the cog icon to the upper right of the Accounts list and check the required status from the drop-down to show the accounts with this status, or uncheck to hide them from the list.
