Create your Zignaly Copy Trading Service

Once you are logged in to your Zignaly account, select Copy-Traders on the left sidebar menu.

Then click  Become a Copy Trader 

Fill in the form with the following information:

            1. Name your Copytrader service.
            2. Select the Exchange you will use for your copytrader account. This can not be changed.
            3. Select the Exchange Type Spot (regular) or Futures (options to short & use leverage)  
              This can not be changed.
              *be sure you have created a Zignaly Spot or Futures exchange account OR have connected a Binance or KuCoin spot/futures account to Zignaly.
            4. Minimum Allocated Balance
              This is the minimum investment that the followers must set to start copying your account.
              This is a very important parameter. You need to take into consideration your strategy. If you plan to have 5 concurrent positions, and you also plan to increase the position size of each one, you will need to make sure that your followers have allocated enough balance to cover everything.
              Take into consideration that we work in percentages when opening a position, so the size will be proportional to the allocated balance of each follower.
              Also, if you decide to charge for your service, take into account the cost of the subscription vs your profits, the minimum allocated balance should be higher than your subscription price.
            5. Quote
              Each copy trading account can only trade with one quote. A way to choose the quote, is to decide what coin you prefer to accumulate? If it's Bitcoin, select BTC, you will trade with BTC pairs
              (ETH/BTC, VET/BTC, ADA/BTC…).
              *If trading with futures, you must select USDT as your quote
              This can not be changed.
