Not yet a pro on the Forex market? Are you tired of stress and endless information coming. You would like to invest, but not sure how to do it and where to invest? That makes you a perfect reader for this article. Today, I’m going to tell you about one interesting product, I’ve been monitoring since the start. Let’s get it on!
On the 15th of October 2013 an innovational product has arrived on Forex market. FxPro company has introduced SuperTrader platform. Shortly, FxPro SuperTrader is a platform that brings investors and strategy leaders together. Everyone has something to bring to the table. Investors have the capital. Leaders have the expertise. So, FxPro provides the platform, trading infrastructure, performance data, and ensures that everything is fair and above board.
What is the difference?
The main difference from other Copy systems that Leaders undergo a stringent review process conducted by Company Business Development team. Even after being approved, each strategy is monitored for consistent performance and adherence to FxPro’s risk management guidelines. Any strategy that fails to meet these guidelines, or to perform in a consistent way, will be removed from the platform. Take a look on the platforms print screen below.
- You determine the strategies you want to invest in
- You decide on how much capital to invest
- You select the risk management style
- You can close an individual strategy, or your entire portfolio, whenever you want
By other words Leaders Make the Trades, You are in Control!

Questions and examples
Question: When I start copying a strategy and a trade is opened, how many lots will be opened?
Answer: This is determined by the ratio between your allocated equity and the leader’s equity.
Example: Let us assume that you allocated $5,000 to a strategy and you have selected a multiplier of 1. Also, let us assume that the equity of the leader of that particular strategy is $10,000. If the leader opens a trade of 3 lots, then you will open a trade with 1.5 lots. (5,000/10,000) * 1 (multiplier) * 3 (no. of lots of the leader) = 1.5.
Question: Can I close an individual position of a strategy that I’m copying?
Answer: Yes, you can. You can manually close each open position from the ‘Open Positions’ area of the ‘Portfolio’ page. You can also close individual positions from the ‘Open Positions’ area of each strategy’s details page. Once closed they will be reflected on the trade history table.
