- Research, engage and select your desired traders’ accounts. You can do so via the Traders page.
- Since many Signal Providers charge a fee for the AutoCopy functionality, you must purchase credits on 96Degree.com.
- As a last step, go to your Profile – AutoCopying section and choose from the trader’s offered fee model that is the most appropriate for you along with appropriate limits and trade sizes. Once completed, confirm that you want to start AutoCopying from the chosen account. Then just sit back and watch trades being automatically replicated on your account.
Note that in order to Copy Trades to your MT4 account, you must keep your MT4 platform open and the 96Degree.com bridge connected on your desktop/ VPS at all times.
(Optional) Step 4: Become a Signal Provider
If you want to provide trade signals on 96Degree.com and earn revenue from Copy Traders you need to:
- Link one or more Live accounts and install the 96Degree.com bridge. Click Here for instructions on account linking and bridge installation.
- Allow others to AutoCopy your trades (from Settings -> Account Link – Account Settings)
- Choose one or more of the fee models you wish to offer and input the amount(s) you want to charge a Copy Trader. You also can choose to offer free trade signals. These actions are also performed in the Account Settings screen.
- Engage with the community and build your reputation to attract more Copy Traders.
Note that Demo accounts are not able to charge fees.
Also note that it is a good practice for Signal Providers to keep their accounts online as much as possible – to allow their Copy Traders copy the trades and prevent copied trades from becoming orphaned.
