cTrader Copy is a versatile and powerful platform for money managers and investors. Via cTrader Copy, skilled traders can provide strategies for other traders to invest it. When a trader invests in a strategy, they automatically copy the trades executed by the strategy provider.
Investors are free to allocate different amounts of capital into different strategies, which means that traders can create custom ‘portfolios’ containing one or more strategies that they have invested in. In turn, strategy providers may choose to charge various fees to investors, creating an additional revenue stream and incentivizing becoming a strategy provider.
