6) Copy your first trade
Congratulations, you are now ready to copy your first trade!
- Open your preferred trading platform. For example, your mobile cTrader platform
- Login to your Master account with your credentials
- Now place an order on your Master, for example BUY 1 lot EURUSD
- Check the order in the Cockpit, you should see the order placed on your Master in the tab "Masters"->"Open Positions"
You can now check the order copied on your Slave account. You can check it on the trading platform of your Slave account, or directly within the Cockpit, go to "Slaves" -> "Open Positions". We can see that our order has been copied correctly, great!
In this example, we have a position of 5 lots placed on the Slave because the Slave balance is five times more than the Master's, and the risk factor defined is "Auto Risk Balance=1", meaning the trade size is proportional between the Master and the Slave balance.
The dashboard located at the top left of the cockpit will reflect the latest trade copied and shows if any orders failed to copy.
The orders tab is helpful as it contains a list of all orders copied from your Master to your Slave and their status. Go to "Slaves" -> "Orders" and click the refresh button to view all orders copied, including the new ones.
