How does it work?

Subscribe

Follow top Traders for $30 a month

For a small monthly subscription fee, gain access to high performing Traders' strategies from different risk appetites.

Any potential profits generated on a monthly basis in a Profit Sharing account can off-set this amount.

And even in the case, that you have a month with negative PnL, a Profit Sharing model works out cheaper when compared to a Classic account, since with a Classic account you pay a mark-up plus volume based fees.

Profit Sharing 1

Pay a performance fee only if you have successful trades

Your trades execute with FXCM's competitive spreads and you pay a 25% of your profits to the Trader only if they have earned you a successful return on your investment.

No win, no performance fee type situation.

In contrast to a Classic Accounts where you must also pay a volume based fee even if you aren't profitable that month, the Profit Sharing performance fee is not payable if you don't have any returns on your investment. You only need to pay a monthly subscription fee.

However, given the type of account: Profit Sharing, you shall pay 25% of your profit generated by each of the Trader your follow directly to ZuluTrade, in addition to the monthly subscription fee you will need to pay ZuluTrade for using their service.

What are the differences between copy-trading with a Profit Sharing Model account vs a Classic Model account?

With a profit sharing account:

  • You don't have to pay ZuluTrade a commission per trade (volume-based fees) but rather a percentage of your profit only if the Trader(s) you follow has earned you a return on your investment. The monthly performance fee is 25%. The profit-sharing model (25%) is bound per Trader, not per account.
  • In case of a less favourable monthly PnL, your expense would be lower as you would only pay a subscription fee of 30 USD and a performance fee to the Traders that provided you with a return, unlike volume-based trading, where you would have to cover a fee per trade irrespective of having a profitable month or not with the Trader you follow.
  • You can benefit from FXCM's competitive spreads without having to worry about a mark-up which can end up affecting your overall trading costs.

The example below has been done by following the 1 rolling month history of the Trader "Swartout" – the higher the pro-rata percentage you use to copy the trading strategy, the more you can realise the benefits of this model vs a mark-up/volume based model.

Classic (volume based) PRO-RATA 100% PRO-RATA 10% PRO-RATA 1%
Traders' Profits $2,454.42 $245.44 $24.54
Commissions $935.00 $93.50 $9.35
Investor's net profits $1,519.42 $151.94 $15.19
Profit Sharing PRO-RATA 100% PRO-RATA 10% PRO-RATA 1%
Traders' Profits $2454.42 $245.44 $24.5442
Subscription Fee $30.00 $30.00 $30.00
PS 25% $613.61 $61.36 $6.14
Investor's net profits $1,810.82 $154.08 $(11.59)

Please remember that past performance is not an indicator of future results. There is no guarantee that trading will result in profits or not result in losses.
