CM TRADING COPYKAT FULL REVIEW

The size of each position is adjusting according to the trader’s available account balance.
CMTRADING COPYKAT MAIN FEATURES
Monitor Past Performance
On the right of the CopyKat platform, there is a list of signal providers ranked by their relative score. By clicking on a signal provider, you can find information such as:
Follow or Copy a Signal Provider
You can choose between ‘Follow’ and ‘Copy’ a signal provider. Follow means you get information about any new trades without putting any funds. Copy means you will copy any new position automatically with real funds.
-You can ‘Stop-Copy’ any provider with a click. In that case, you need to close the existing positions manually.
Select a Copy Method
When you decide to copy a signal provider, you can choose between two copy methods:
Note that in both cases, the CopyKat system automatically recognizes:
(1) A trader starts to copy a signal provider:
Signal provider holding $20,000 in his trading account
Trader holding $2,000 in his account
(2) The signal provider executes a trade worth 2 lots on EURUSD:
2 lots EURUSD ($200,000)
The signal provider uses 10:1 trading leverage ($200,000 trade based on $20,000 equity)
(3) The same trade is copied by the trader, as follows:
Leverage will remain the same (10:1)
The size of the position will be $20,000, or else 0.2 lots ($2,000 x 10:1 leverage)
Sirix CopyKat Platform Review Conclusions
The CopyKat platform is an easy-to-use copy-trading solution. You can choose between various signal providers and monitor with accuracy their past performance. As concerns the broker, CM Trading can be considered as a safe place to trade Forex (regulated broker, offering segregated client bank accounts) but the spreads they provide are wide for Mini and Standard Accounts. Traders opening Executive or Gold accounts can enjoy much better terms (trading spreads). The minimum initial deposit for a social-trading account is $250, and you can fund it via cards and internet wallets (Neteller, CashU, Fasapay). There is also a 20% welcome bonus promotion and risk-free trades.

MT4 Automated Trading
The brand-new copy-trade technology gives everyone the opportunity to easily copy the trade positions of experienced traders.
There are many different methods to perform automated trading, and that includes:
The MT4 trading platform incorporates a fully-featured framework for performing automated trading. MT4 supports all popular copy trading methods (EAs, Social Trading, PAMM Accounts).
In this guide, we are going to show how to use the MT4 copy-trade system (2nd method).
Metatrader-4 allow traders to automatically follow, or copy, the trade positions of others (signal providers). Note that every MT4 user can be a signal provider too, and make money if others choose to follow him. You can find information about how to become a signal provider at the end.
Some signal providers may use Expert Advisors in their live accounts. When you are about to select signal providers, you have the ability to check if these providers are using Expert Advisors, or if they are trading manually.
In order to copy and trade signals via MT4, you need:
(1) An active MT4 trading account provided by an MT4 broker (easy and free to sign up)
(2) MQL community registration (easy and free to sign up, information below)
(3) Some funds to trade (minimum 200-300 USD)
