The Equity is the secure part of the trading account at any given point in time. When an account has open trades the Equity falctuates according to the Live P/L.
The Equity tells you what impact the live trade positions would have on the balance if the positions were closed. For example, if your balance is $10,000 and your Live P/L is + $700, then your equity would be $10,700!
Equity = Balance + Live P/L.
Balance Max Drawdown is the measure of an portfolio’s largest value drop from a peak to a trough. i.e the greatest movement from a high point to a low point.
The Balance is the total financial result of all fully executed transactions on a trading account. That includes deposits, withdrawals to and from the account, fees for opening trades which are deducted directly from the account Balance (e.g. commissions) and the Realized P/L of all closed positions.
The Live P/L of any open positions does not affect the Balance while those positions are still open. The Balance will be recalculated once those positions close.
For example, if you deposit $10,000 in a new account and you open a trade that wins $200 (live P/L = $200). While the trade is still open the Balance remainss at $10,000. If you close the trade while winning $200, your Live P/L will become $0 and your Balance will increase to $10,200.
Leverage is a feature that multiplies the purchasing power in a trading account.
Leverage is the use of borrowed capital to amplify the ability of the trading account to open larger tardining positions.
A leverage of 200:1 allows the account to open positions 200 larger than the amount it has as Free Margin.
Unrealised P/L (Profit/Loss) is the agregate runnning profit or loss of all open positions. The unrealised profit or loss is a reflection of what profit or loss could be made (realized) if all the open positions were closed in that instant. The Unrealised P/L does not become realised until the position is closed.
Realised P/L (Profit/Loss) refers to the profit or loss on a completed trade. This means on a position that has been opened and closed.
“Return” is a metric that reflects the historical of the account relative to the deposit(s) made in the account using a Time-Weighted Rate of Return calculation. Return is expressed as a percentage.

Overnight financing for positions is when you keep positions open overnight, also referred to as a swap. If you keep positions open past rollover time (22:00 GMT) you will either earn or get charged the swap value. The value of the swap depends on the size of your open position, the instrument you are trading, your account type and the direction of your position. There are different swaps for long positions and short positions on each instrument.
Swaps apply triple on Wednesday, because that’s how the banks supplying liquidity to the financial markets apply them. This has to do with the way spot Forex contracts are settled. Spot Forex transactions have a 2-day settlement period. A spot FX transaction made on a Monday, settles on the following Wednesday. Trades from Tuesday settle on Thursday etc. But trades rolled into Thursday settle on the following Monday as there are no settlements over the weekend when banks are closed. Hence the reason for triple swaps applying to running positions at Wednesday rollover time.

A Signal is an account that you can copy. At the top of the “Account” tab you can see the number of Signals you are copying. Tap the number to seee the list of Signals you have chosen to copy.
Proportional by Equity:
Your trade sizes will be proportional to your Equity relative to the Signal’s Equity
Mirror Master Size:
Your trade sizes will be the same as the Signal’s irrespective of the equity on your account
Locks the size of trades for all trades
When you copy a Signal using the “Proportional by equity” option, this it adjusts the size of the trade in proportion to your account size relative to the Signal’s account size. This means you are taking a similar risk to the Signal you’re copying. If the Signal’s account size has 10 times more Equity than yours, and the signal opens 1 Lot of USDJPY, the app will open a trade 10 time smaller on your account (0.1 Lots).
Please double-check that you have indeed stopped copying the Signal. For more information on how to stop copying a Signal check our FAQ “How do I stop copying a Signal?”.
You can be a Signal by choosing that Signal option when you link your account and having an opening account balance of at least $500. Most Signals have at least 6 months of trading experience and positive results.
Max drawdown is determined by calculating the client’s running profit, minus the running profit of open trades, and subtracting this from the High Watermark (HWM). Running profit is the net profit of each trade collated including swap and commission charges. The drawdown will not take into account trades placed by the client themselves nor deposits or withdrawals.
If a deposit or withdrawal is made then your max drawdown will need to be reset to adjust to the new balance. You can also reset your max drawdown to take into account how trading has affected your balance.
The Drawdown figure displayed on the “Account” tab in the app is calculated differently and only takes into account realised profit and loss.”
Most Signals prefer to set a Performance Fee, but you have the option to charge a Subscription Fee instead.
If you choose to copy a Signal that charges a Subscription Fee, this fee is charged to your trading account monthly and deducted at the beginning of each calendar month.
Important: Irrespective of how long you have been copying for the month, you’ll be charged the full Subscription Fee.
At the beginning of each calendar month.
Important: Irrespective of how long you have been copying for the month, you’ll be charged the full Subscription Fee.
Performance Fees are calculated weekly. A Performance Fee is deducted in arrears based on the extent to which total aggregate profit has been achieved considering all closed and open positions, subject to a High Watermark (HWM). If you are copying multiple Signals at the same time, the copy trades of different Signals are considered “in silo” and losses made by copying one Signal do not impact the Performance Fees owed to another; the overall profitability of the Copier’s account is not relevant.
The High Watermark is based on the highest value that a client account has achieved. i.e. Performance Fees will only apply if the Copier continues to increase its profits. The watermark is reset each time the Copier increases its profits; the gain minus the Performance Fee will become the new benchmark. If a Copier suffers losses, then the watermark will remain the same and Performance Fees will apply again when they’ve recovered those losses and made a further profit.
A Copier may make a profit which exceeds the High Watermark but then suffers losses in the same reporting period which reduces their profit back below the High Watermark. Under these circumstances, Performance Fees will be rolled over to subsequent reporting window (the next week) and paid when losses are recovered.
Performance Fees are calculated weekly. They are charged to a Copier’s trading account when they have been processed and the deduction will be clearly labelled in their trading statement. A deposit will be made in Signal’s trading account shortly after minus an admin Fee.
Performance Fees are calculated weekly. They are deducted shortly thereafter when they get processed. They are labelled clearly in your account.
The High Watermark (HWM) is the highest value the gains of a Trading Account have ever reached. The HWM is the benchmark for applying Performance Fees. i.e. Performance Fees will only apply if the Copier continues to increase their profits. The High Watermark is reset each time the Copier increases their profits; the gain minus the Performance Fee will become the new benchmark. If a Copier suffers losses, then the watermark will remain the same and Performance Fees will apply again when they’ve recovered those losses and made further profit.
If you tap “Positions” and then choose “Missed”, there is an explanation for every missed trade. Such as not enough money in balance, Market not available etc.
Our system works by sending out the request for a trade to be placed and then waits for a response from the trading server. This is instantaneous but we will wait for as long as 15 minutes. If the trade remains within the price parameters set by the Signal you are copying, the trade will be executed within those 15 minutes. After 15 minutes the trade will not be copied. This is why your trade execution could be late or missed.
No, you can only use one Trading Account per profile.
