14.3 Once the Margin Call is reached, all open trades on the Follower Account are closed and the remaining funds are no longer available to be placed on trades.
Follower deposits USD$1,000 and selects Margin Call of 20%, therefore USD$200 is secured in case of loss, subject to Clause 14.4. When Follower’s equity reaches USD$200 all open trades are closed and the remaining funds are no longer available to be placed on the trades.
Follower deposits USD$1,000 and selects Margin Call of 25%, therefore USD$250 is secured in case of loss, subject to Clause 14.4. Follower makes profit of USD$250 and decides to withdraw USD$500. Upon withdrawal, the Follower is requested to set new Margin Call which will be calculated for the remaining funds of USD$750.
Follower deposits USD$1,000 and selects Margin Call of 30%, therefore USD$300 is secured in case of loss, subject to Clause 14.4. Follower decides to make an additional deposit of USD$100. Upon deposit, the Follower is requested to set new Margin Call, which will be calculated for funds of USD$1,100.

15. Types of Social Trading
15.1 Copy Ratio
15.1.1 Copy Ratio is the ratio determining the size of the Followers position copied in relation to the Strategy Provider trade. It is calculated as Equity Ratio between Follower and Strategy Provider and the chosen Follower Volume Allocation.
15.1.2 The Copy Ratio changes dynamically as the equity on the Follower Account and Strategy Provider Account changes, meaning it is recalculated on each trade as the equity ratio is different on each trade even if the Volume Allocation has not changed.
15.1.3 Follower Volume Allocation is the Percentage selected by the Follower which, alongside his equity, is used to determine the volume of trades to be copied.
15.1.4 Volume Allocation can be adjusted during each deposit to the Follower Account meaning the Copy Ratio is reset each time funds are added to the Follower Account.
15.1.5 In the event that the position size to be opened – based on the Copy Ratio – is less than the minimum tradeable volume offered by the Company, then the trade will open with a minimum trade size of 0.01 lot.
15.1.6 The corresponding position size of the copied trade to be opened in the Follower Account after the calculation of the Copy Ratio will be rounded up or down, to the nearest hundredth. For example, if the copied trade to be opened based on the volume allocation is 0.124, the position will be rounded down to 0.12 and if the copied trade to be opened based on the volume allocation is 0.127, the position will be rounded up to 0.13.
15.1.7 In the event of a partial closure of a position by the Strategy Provider the corresponding partial closure position size to be closed in the Follower Account after calculation of the Copy Ratio will be rounded up i.e. if the partial closure of the copied trade based on the Volume Allocation is 0.005 the partial closure position size will be rounded up to the minimum volume size.
Copy Ratio Example A:
Follower A deposits USD$400 and selects Volume Allocation of 100%
Strategy Provider A deposits USD$5,000
The Follower’s trade copy ratio will be 400/5,000 * 100/100 = 0.08
Strategy Provider A opens position size of 0.50 lot
Follower A position size will be 0.50*0.08 = 0.04 lot
Copy Ratio Example B:
Follower B deposits USD$400 and selects Volume Allocation of 50%
Strategy Provider B deposits USD$5,000
The Follower’s trade copy ratio will be 400/5,000 * 50/100 = 0.04
Strategy Provider B opens position size of 0.10 lot
Follower B position size will be 0.10*0.04 = 0.004 lot, therefore the trade will open with minimum trade size of 0.01 lot subject to the Followers approval and confirmation, otherwise the trade will not be copied.
Copy Ratio Example C:
Follower C deposits USD$10,000 and selects Volume Allocation of 100%
Strategy Provider C deposits USD$5,000
The Follower’s trade copy ratio will be 10,000/5,000 * 100/100 = 2
Strategy Provider C opens position size of 1.00 lot
Follower C position size will be 1.00*2 = 2.00 lots
15.2.1 Equity is to trade based on the Follower’s account equity.
Eg: Balance + Floating Profit & Loss
15.3.1 To copy a Fixed number of lots set by the Follower.
15.4.1 Multiply the trade according to the amount set by the Follower.
15.5 Reverse Copy
15.5.1 To copy in a Reverse direction of the trade open by the Strategy Provider.
16. Performance Fee
16.1 Strategy Providers will select at the time of opening their Strategy Provider Account a Performance Fee percentage up to a maximum of 50% (Fifty Percent).
16.2 Followers are obligated to pay the Performance Fee to the Strategy Provider they choose to follow based on their positive performance i.e. the Strategy Provider shall not receive the Performance Fee in case of a negative performance.
16.3 The Performance Fee is calculated according to the below formula:
(Follower’s Profits – Follower’s Losses) * Strategy Provider chosen Performance Fee % = Performance Fee payable by Follower to the Strategy Provider
Strategy Provider A chose Performance Fee is 20%
Follower A profit = USD$1,000
Follower A loss = USD$0
(1,000 – 0) * 20% = USD$200 payable by the Follower to the Strategy Provider
Strategy Provider B chosen Performance Fee is 25%
Follower B profit = USD$1,000
Follower B loss = USD$500
(1,000 – 500) * 25% = USD$125 payable by the Follower to the Strategy Provider
Strategy Provider C chosen Performance Fee is 30%
Follower C profit = USD$1,000
Follower C loss = USD$1,200
(1,000 – 1,200) * 30% = - USD$60, therefore no fee payable by the Follower to the Strategy Provider for negative performance
16.4 The Strategy Provider acknowledges, understands and confirms that the formula is based on the investment duration and therefore covers the period starting from the last Performance Fee pay-out to the current date. The Performance Fee is not guaranteed as the value of open position rise or fall.
16.5 The Performance Fee payment is completed on defined settlement interval or at the time of withdrawal or time of unfollowing.
16.6 Performance Fee calculation, deposit and withdrawal of funds, crediting and debiting of Performance Fee are performed automatically by the Company and will be shown on WeTrade statements accordingly.
17. Archived accounts
17.1 The Company has the right to archive any account either a Strategy Provider or a Follower Account as per the terms of the Account Opening Agreement which the Strategy Provider and the Follower have accepted prior to entering into a business relationship with the Company.
17.2 In the case of a Strategy Provider Account being archived:
- The Strategy Provider will be removed from the Strategy Provider Accounts list on the designated page on the Company’s website; and
- All Follower Accounts of the Strategy Provider will be disconnected.
17.3 In the case of a Follower Account being archived, it will be disconnected from the Strategy Provider.
