Choosing Proper Traders to Copy
Try to find traders meeting your aims with the help of special filters:
- 1-Year Trading History. Copy those traders who have at least 1-year trading history to know whether they perform in a long run.
- Low-Risk Score. Make sure a trader uses sensible practices, so choose a trader with lower risk scores.
- A 10-30% year return. When a trader has a year return of 80%-200%+, it means he was using too much leverage and was just getting lucky. It doesn’t mean this investor is experienced, and thus, he won’t show the same results in a long run.
- Active Trader. Active trader means a trader who has at least one trade per week. Such traders will be more likely to work hard on growing your copy amount. Otherwise, your money will simply be locked in one or two trades.
