What is copy ratio and how to choose it correctly?
In the Esperio Copy Trading service, the volume of the copied transaction on the Investor account is equal to the percentage of the volume of the corresponding transaction on the Trader account, multiplied by the ratio of funds on the accounts of both parties. For example, if the Investor has set the coefficient of the copied volume of 50%, and the Trader opens a transaction with a volume of 5 lots on his account, then if the amount of funds is equal, a transaction with a volume of 2.5 lots is copied to the Investor account. The coefficient of copying trading transactions from the Trader account to the Investor account is set by the Investor at the time of connection to the Trader account. The minimum copy percentage is 100%, the maximum is 1000%. The higher the percentage of copying, the greater the volume of replicated transactions opened on the Investor account, and accordingly, the risk increases.
Can the Trader and the Investor see each other's deposit and other account indicators?
Yes they can. Trader and Investor can see the size of each other's deposits in messages containing information on copied transactions. After the Trader has opened a transaction and it has been copied to the Investor account, the Investor receives a message to the MetaTrader 4 internal mailbox. The Trader account indicators (profit, loss, yield volatility, drawdown) can be found by the Investor in the rating of traders.
Does the company compensate the Investor for losses in case of unsuccessful transaction of the Trader?
Esperio does not reimburse the Investor for losses in case of negative results of the Trader's trading. It is recommended to use only your own funds (not credit) in the service, which you are ready to risk. The company does not guarantee profit. Positive trading results in the past do not guarantee positive trading results in the future.
What risk management measures are provided for Investors?
The Company provides the Investor with full access to the copied transactions, the ability to limit risk or take profits, as well as disconnect from the Trader at any time.
The Esperio Copy Trading service provides copy settings that will help limit the risks. There is also a monitoring system for traders (traders rating), where you can see the entire history of their trading, profitability graphs and risk assessment. Risk is a normalized measure of fluctuations in daily returns over the last 14 trading days. If this indicator is high (5), then the Trader allows high fluctuations in profitability, that is, he uses aggressive trading strategies. A low indicator (1) indicates that the Trader's strategy is conservative.
Will all the commission deducted from the accounts of Investors on profitable transactions be guaranteed to be credited to the Trader account?
The interests of the Investor and the Trader are protected by a buffer account. The Investor cannot withdraw funds intended to reward the Trader. In turn, the Trader cannot receive a commission higher than it should be based on the results of transactions.
At the end of the settlement period, mutual settlements between the Trader and the Investor are made based on the total for all closed replicated orders as of the settlement date.
If a profit is generated on the Investor's account as a result of copying Trader's transactions, then a percentage of the total profit on the Investor's account, specified in the Trader's offer, minus the company's commission, will be transferred to the Trader account as a reward. If the amount of this reward is less than the amount of commissions accumulated on the buffer account for each individual profitable transaction, then the difference is returned to the Investor account.
If there is a loss on the Investor account as a result of copying the Trader's transactions, then the commission is not paid to the Trader, and the amount of commissions accumulated on the buffer account for each individual profitable deal is returned to the Investor account.
Is it possible to be a Trader and an Investor at the same time?
If you want to give yourself a challenge or are ready to use the Esperio Copy Trading service in different roles, you will need a separate account for each role, with which you can act either as a Trader or as an Investor. There are no restrictions on opening Trader and Investor accounts. You can open as many Trader or Investor accounts within the Esperio Copy Trading service as you wish.
