- Select ‘Copy this Trader’.
- Allocate your funds
Enter the amount you wish to allocate from your balance.
What does this mean? Basically, this is the max balance the trader will use from your funds.If the trader uses 10% of his funds, it will replicate on your account using 10% of your funds proportionally.
Take into consideration that all the traders have a minimum amount to allocate, this is related to their strategy, and it's not possible to invest less than this amount.
Be sure that your selected exchange account has the funds needed to cover your allocated amount, & that this is also in the quote the copytrader is using.
example: 100 USDT> you must have this amount of USDT, not the value in BTC
or held in other coins.
- (unless it's free) Select pay using Coinpayments, once your payment goes through to the Copytrader, it will list your expiry date, and you are now connected to this trader!
That's it! Just wait for the next operation, it will be replicated on your account automatically 😉
