Copy trading facilities

What is it?

Copy Trading is becoming popular in the financial markets; it allows a client (the Copier) to automatically copy the trades of another client (the Trader).

Becoming a Trader

To become a Trader (i.e. to allow others to follow your trades), set the “allow_copiers” setting via the set settings call.

The Trader then creates a read-only API token and provides it to the Copier.

Enabling the allow_copiers setting will also make the copytrading statistics call work. The statistics API call provides the information about an account (this is so that potential copiers have an idea about the trader’s past performance).

Becoming a Copier

To become a copier, use the copy start call. To stop copying, use the copy stop call.
