Copy trading is a strategy where investors follow experienced traders who have a high success rate and copy their trading strategies. Copy trading is slightly different from mirror trading. Whereas in copy trading the trader will directly copy the moves of a successful trader, in mirror trading, traders follow signals which are developed from the trading patterns of different successful traders.
Mirror trading involves replicating the trading strategy of other traders, particularly those employed by companies that offer mirror trading services. These companies blend the tactics of their top traders to create reliable and precise signals for their clients. While mirror trading is not a new strategy, it has undergone significant changes using big data and artificial intelligence. Consequently, mirror trading signals are now highly accurate and predictable, making it a suitable option for investors seeking a hands-off forex trading experience.
The primary disadvantage of mirror trading is that it requires you to mirror everything. One cannot choose which signals to follow, and the entire process is fully automated. To enable automated mirror trading, traders must also install proprietary software or a MetaTrader plugin.
Copytrading with a difference
Here at IronFX, we have an ideal platform for copy-trading which is known as TradeCopier. The platform allows you to follow experienced traders and expand your portfolio. If you don’t have enough time to invest in trading or lack the experience and knowledge, using TradeCopier will allow you to still participate in the markets by taking advantage of the expertise of professional traders.
What is TradeCopier?
The TradeCopier platform allows individuals in the financial markets to automatically replicate the positions opened and managed by other traders in real time.
