Get to know all about Copy and Social Trading


Once upon a time but not so long ago the words ‘financial markets’ painted a picture of suited men huddled over desks and phones intently watching black and white screens. Fast forward two decades and an exponential leap into the technological era later, the financial markets are not only accessible from your sitting room, but to almost anyone who wants to trade and learn the craft can get involved. Even novice traders and those with limited time can trade, thanks to innovations like copy and social trading in forex.

Currently, the foreign exchange market (forex) has an estimated turnover of $5 trillion worth of transactions daily. That ten-digit figure has people flocking to find ways to take a bite of potential profits by trying their hand at trading.

With the actual willingness to post everything online we can see what influence and successful people are doing in their own investments, so we can mirror their movements and try to make the same profits. It is called Copy and Social Trading.

Copy trading means that anyone with only a basic understanding of the financial markets and forex trading, can access trading opportunities- without spending years familiarizing themselves with the technical and fundamentals of the market. Copy trading also provides potential opportunities to trade to those who lack the time to follow every market twist and turn.

This sounds very enticing. Instead of constantly reading news and trying to draw conclusions, and spending much time with the technical analysis of price movements, you just copy successful traders.

To copy forex traders means to invest capital into the strategy of a suitable forex trader. Your positions mirror theirs, and you pay an agreed percentage on any profitable trades. However, while you share all of the potential rewards, you also share all of the risks. So, choose your trader to copy carefully.

Basically, the Copy Trading provider gathers people who are available to share its investment strategy using monetary or non-monetary incentives.

Portals like eToro.com are recognized worldwide for being the first to move from automated trading operations to Copy and Social Trending. There you can find the outcomes of other participants and can copy their operations with different degrees of automation.

There are lots of Portals trying to outstand in Forex

These portals do it by calling its strategy by different names, like mirror trades, copy trades and social trades. They have the same basic concept: if someone is making money trading, I can do the same if I have all the information.

But there is a catch, because if you stimulate the ego of traders to be more profitable than others (and probably paying something to the best players) them, they probably will take more risk to try to be in the top list of returns.

It can be riskier to traders which follow them blindly. Remember, past results do not guarantee future returns.

The growing use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) relies in its capability of being more “cold” than social traders trying to gather more followers to improve its reputation. That is where the bigger risk resided.

Probably nowadays the social traders are also using tools such bots and Artificial Intelligence in their trading decision-making process (but probably they will not show you that in full details for free).
