There maybe multiple reasons why your account cannot connect. Please make sure you are doing the following:
- You are connecting with your TRADING password not your INVESTOR account.
- You're entering the wrong server, account number or password.
- You are a Signal account and you need to close all trades from an existing account you had connected.
- Your MetaTrader 4 password is too long - it needs to be less than 15 characters.
Navigate to 'Account', 'Settings', 'Account Information' and select 'Delete account'. Please note that when you select this option you will be automatically logged out.
Navigate to 'Account', 'Settings', 'Account Information' and select 'Unlink account'. Please note that you will be automatically redirected to the Discover section.
Navigate to 'Account', select 'Link account' and input your new trading account details.
Select 'Account', and then 'Edit profile'. In this page, you will be able to change your name, biography, website and location.
Yes, you can place trades manually.
The app lanuage will be the same as your device language. Please note it cannot be changed unless you change the language setting of your device.
To copy a trader, select the Account you would like to copy, select Copy, you may have to complete a Suitability Form, once you have completed the Form, select your copy size:
- Proportional by Equity (trade sizes are proportional to the copiers equity relative to the Signal)
- Mirror Master Size (trade size is the same as the Signal irrespective of the equity on account)
- Fixed Size (locks the size of trades for all trades)
Select whether you want to copy already open trades that the Signal has open, and finally select whether you want trades to be rounded to the minimum trade size - even if we have calculated a copy size smaller than your broker has available.
At the beginning of each month. Please note that irrespective how long you have been copying for the month, you will be charged the full fee.
When copying a signal, 'Proportional by equity' adjusts the size of your trade relative to your account size so it mirrors the size of the signal's trade in proportion to their account size. This means you are taking a similar risk to the signal you are copying. Buying $5,000 of CAP40 is much more risky for an account with a balance of $5,500 than for one with $100,000!
Yes, you can place trades manually while an account is connected to a Signal provider. You have full control and also full responsibility of the actions taken / allowed on your account
Signal & Strategy
A signal is an account that you are copying. Signals can also be referred to as "Strategies" or a "Fund". In your 'Account' section you will have a list of Signals. The list identifies the different accounts you have chosen to copy.
Anyone can be a signal provider and can select that option when you link your account. Most signals have at least 6 months of trading experience and positive results. Once you linked your live trade account to the app, you can then select to be Signal Provider. You will be required to fill the form and assessment questionnaire.
Signals can set a Performance Fee as soon as they are approved by our team. Please head to the 'Account' page and choose to 'set fee' and then 'performance'. This can be as much as 50% and can be changed at any point. A copier will pay the Performance Fee % they signed up to originally. A change will only affect new copiers from that point on.
Performance fees are calculated based on your Broker's preferred interval: Instantly, Daily, Weekly or Monthly. Fees are then deducted shortly thereafter when they have been processed. They will be labelled clearly in your account. IC Markets Global offers daily performance fee payout for Signal providers.
Yes, you will need to apply for this feature. To Apply log back into the App, navigate to Account and select 'I want to charge my copiers'
Performance Fees is calculated automatically on the profitable trades only and paid at the beginning of each month.
Mirror master size copies the size of the signal that you wish to copy.
For example, if the trader you wish to copy has bought $50 worth of bitcoin, choosing "mirror master size" will buy you $50 worth of Bitcoin.
This function copies the signal trade size for all trades, irrespective your or the trader's account size.
