An Investment Platform
cTrader Copy is an overhaul of the mirror trading platform, formerly known as cMirror, which functions as a flexible investment platform and a fully-integrated feature of cTrader.
Any trader can become a Strategy Provider, and broadcast their trading signals to followers for a performance, management and volume fee. Investors can, in turn, discover strategies, and copy them without any long-term commitment.
cTrader Copy is a core component of the cTrader Suite of trading platforms. It is provided to all brokers at no extra charge.

capabilities with cTrader Copy
Equity to Equity Copying
Investors copy open positions as they begin to follow a strategy. The volume that will be copied is based on the equity-to-equity ratio, according to the amount allocated to the strategy. An investor can set an Equity Stop Loss to stop copying altogether, when equity falls below a certain level.
Investors can bookmark strategies they are interested in to watch, monitor, and come back to them later. At the same time, all strategies that are being followed are listed for easy reference and ability to modify settings at any point.
Strategy Providers can charge commissions based on the volume that their investors have traded, while copying their strategy. Volume fees are added to each position and charged once for opening, and once for closing positions.
Performance and Management
A popular method used by money managers, which allows them to take a percentage of their clients ROI, using a High Water Mark and a fee, according to the amount of money their investors have allocated.
