Copy trading fees

What are the costs associated with copy trading?

Copy trading, like any other form of trading, comes with some costs that you should be aware of, including trading fees, slippage, performance fees (a percentage of the profits you make from copying a successful trader's trades), funding rates, and subscription/strategy fees.

How much does it cost to begin Copy trading on Bitget?

By using Bitget's copy trading feature, you can become a follower and have the same positions as top traders at no cost (no registration fees). However, in accordance with our platform's guidelines, a portion of the profits generated from this trading will be charged.

What fees do I need to pay for each trade? Are there any hidden fees?

The fees for each trade are based on the copy trading strategy you choose. Rest assured that there are no hidden fees, providing you with complete transparency and peace of mind.
To copy futures trades, you will need to consider futures fees, funding rates, and performance fees. For Spot copy trading, on the other hand, you should factor in the spot fees, slippage, and performance fees. Ultimately, when it comes to Bot Copy Trading, you'll need to make a payment either in the form of subscription fees if you opt to subscribe to the strategist for 30 days or strategy fees if you decide to purchase the strategy directly from the strategist.

Copy trading performance tracking

What metrics should I use to track the performance of my copy trading portfolio?

To track the performance of your copy trading portfolio, here are some metrics we suggest you consider:
  • Return on Investment (ROI): calculates the percentage of profit or loss from your investment. This is the most common metric for measuring the overall success of your portfolio.
  • Win rate: measures the percentage of trades that result in a profit. The higher the win rate, the higher the probability of making profitable trades.
  • Position duration: measures the average time it takes for a trade to reach its profit target or stop-loss. It helps followers evaluate the effectiveness of the trader’s strategy.
  • Drawdown rate: measures the largest percentage loss your portfolio has experienced from its peak value. Followers should aim to keep drawdown rates as low as possible to minimize the risk of significant losses.

How often should I review my copy trading performance?

The ideal frequency for reviewing your portfolio is determined by your investment goals, risk tolerance, and trading strategy. We advise you to review your copy trading performance regularly to ensure that your investment objectives are met and that there is no serious loss.

What tools can I use to track my copy trading performance?

  • Bitget Copy Trading analytics: a built-in analytics tool that allows you to track your performance in real time.
  • Bitget app: allows you to track your performance on the go and stay on top of your trading.
  • Spreadsheet software: offers you the flexibility to create your simple performance tracking spreadsheet using popular tools such as Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets.
