Edit your profile
Before being listed in the marketplace, or if you just want to adjust how your service account looks, you can use the edit page and update your information.
About Us: (optional) Introduce yourself, let the public know a bit of information you may wish to share, ex. When did you begin trading, achievements as a trader, a reason to create a service for the public. Try to be detailed to create trust, which, as important as your results, will be what moves users to follow you.
Strategy: Explain your strategy; examples; why it succeeds? the risk involved, drawdown levels, what should your follower expect? You have to explain, in a mandatory way, your maximum drawdown. If the total floating is below that amount at any point, we may enforce a complete exit and disconnection of all the users.
Who Are We: (optional, but recommended) add your name and where you are located.
Find Us Here: select any of the options and add the corresponding URL to allow the public to reach out to you to receive more information. At least one channel is required when being listed in the marketplace.
Upload a logo: This is required when being listed in the marketplace.
Website: If you have a website for more information regarding your trading profile or services, you may add it here, It will be displayed publicly on your Copytrader profile.
Set the maximum Drawdown that your service will reach.
In order for users to know the risk they are taking when choosing which service to copy, it will be mandatory for each trader to set the maximum drawdown level that can be reached. In case this is exceeded, Zignaly may intercede in the management of open positions.
This maximum drawdown is always negative. Once you have applied this, we have saved the value, you can only reduce it (this means that if you set up -30% you can change it to -20% but not to -40%.)
Max Drawdown refers to both the decrease of our allocated and also the PnL that we have in the open positions.
For example: you started with 100 USDT, and because some closed positions your balance drops to 80 (-20%), if at this moment your current PnL will make that your balance drops to 70 USDT (-10% extra) your current drawdown will be -30%.
Save your data.
All of the information you have provided will now be in your ‘Profile’ section.
Visibility of your service
By default, your profit-sharing service is unlisted.
Without being listed on the marketplace, you can still allow Zignaly users to copy you by sharing your service URL.
Once logged in on Zignaly, users can enter this Url and connect to your profit-sharing service.
To find your Service URL: Open your profit-sharing profile page,
The Url address in your browser will be your 'service URL':
