FAQ of OctaFX CopyTrading App


OctaFX CopyTrading for Copiers



How do I choose Master Traders to copy?

A Master Trader’s stats include gain and number of copiers, commission, trading pairs the Master uses, profit factor, and other statistical data that you can review before making your decision to copy someone. Before copying starts, you set a deposit percentage and choose the amount of funds to invest with a particular Master Trader.
 


How does copying work in terms of volume and leverage differences?

The volume of the copied trade depends on leverage and equity of both Master Trader’s and Copier’s accounts. It is calculated as follows:
Volume (Copied Trade) = Equity (Copier)/Equity (Master) × Leverage (Copier)/Leverage (Master) × Volume (Master).

Example: The Master Trader’s account equity is 500 USD, and leverage is 1:200; Copier account equity is 200 USD and leverage is 1:100. 1 lot trade is opened on the Master account. The volume of the copied trade will be: 200/500 × 100/200 × 1 = 0.2 lot.
 


Do you charge any commission for copying masters?

OctaFX doesn’t charge any additional commission—the only commission you pay is the Master Trader’s commission, which is specified individually and is charged in USD per lot of traded volume.
 


What is a deposit percentage?

Deposit percentage is an option that you set prior to copying that helps you control your risks. You can vary the amount from 1% to 100%. When this parameter is set, you will stop copying new trades by the Master Trader if your equity falls below the set amount. This threshold is calculated as follows:
Equity (Copier) You can adjust it while copying of the Master Trader is active.
 


Can I stop copying a Master Trader?

You can unsubscribe from Master Trader and stop copying their trades at any moment. When you unsubscribe, all funds invested with the Master Trader and your profit from copying will be returned to your Wallet. Before unsubscribing, please make sure all current trades are closed.
