4 Best Forex Trade Copiers – Tried And Tested

When you finally reach consistency and profitability in trading, there’s a lot you can do with your trades. Whether this includes getting funded accounts, selling signals, trading for family or just having different accounts on different risk perimeters, copying your trades onto different accounts is a very handy thing to do.

Manually logging into 5 different accounts, working out the lot sizes, then executing all of these trades is going to take you way too long to do, especially for intraday traders – this is where trade copiers come in.

In this article we are going to look at the best 4 forex trade copying solutions in the market, the pros, cons and my experience with these tools over the last few years. As of 2023, I’m still using these tools in my own trading! Let’s get into it…

What Is Forex Trade Copying Software?

Forex trade copying software is used to copy the trades from a Master MT4/MT5 Account, to other accounts linked to that one account. MetaTraderOpens in a new tab.

I’ve personally used a trade copier for the last 6 years and found it extremely useful for a number of different reasons. The main users of trade copiers are:

Retail Forex Traders

Some forex traders like to copy their trades onto other accounts, with different risk settings. I used to have a Master Account and the trades would be sent to a higher risk account with less capital, trading at a much higher risk per trade. This can be a great way to diversify risk and spread your portfolio more than just on the one trading account.

Funded Traders

Signal Sellers

Traders selling signals and account management often use a forex trade copier to copy their trades onto the accounts of their subscribers. This has to be done extremely carefully as there can be legal implications of trading other peoples money, so please do your due diligence if you’re thinking of starting a signal service.

Setting Up Your Forex Trade Copier

When you add multiple accounts to a trade copier, you want it to be running constantly. If the trade copier goes down or turns off when you’re managing risk on the master account, the other copier accounts may not be connected and the trades could not be updated – causing a huge issue for traders.

This can be avoided by setting the trade copier up on a VPS with guaranteed up time!

ForexVPS is also a great idea if you have a Mac and struggle to get MT4 on there, you can purchase a VPS, use Remote Desktop on Mac to access it and trade until your hearts content!
