Step-by-Step Guide to Copy Trading on Deriv cTrader

  1. Navigate to the Copy Tab: On the left-hand side of the cTrader platform, you’ll find the ‘Copy’ tab. Click on it to access the copy trading feature.
  2. Choosing a Strategy Provider: Under the ‘Strategies’ tab, you’ll find a list of strategy providers. Take your time to review their performance and select a provider that aligns with your trading preferences. You can also use the search bar to filter and find specific providers.
  3. Reviewing Fees and Conditions: Before committing to a strategy provider, it’s essential to review the associated fees and conditions. This includes minimum investment, performance fee, management fee, and volume fee. Hover over the information icon for detailed insights.

  5. Monitoring and Reviewing: Keep track of your copied trades in the ‘Copy’ tab to stay updated on the provider’s performance and your progress. You can navigate among active copy trades and adjust your settings accordingly.

Understanding Your Fees

To provide further clarity, let’s delve into a sample fee calculation:

Strategy Name: Sample Strategy
Minimum Investment $1,000
Volume Fee $5 per one million USD
Performance Fee 20% of net profit using a High-Water Mark model
Management Fee 5% of investor’s equity

Volume Fee Calculation: Assuming total volume copied is $3,000,000: Volume Fee = ($3,000,000 / 1,000,000) * $5 = $15

Performance Fee Calculation: Assuming the investor’s net profit is $1,500: Performance Fee = $1,500 * 20% = $300

Management Fee Calculation: Assuming the investor’s equity is $10,000: Management Fee = ($10,000 / 100) * 5% = $50
