  • Copy signal and leverage question

    Say i want to copy a signal where the master account of signal is using a leverage of 1:500 with their broker.
    With my broker im using a leverage of 1:30 when copying. Will this cause me any issues when copying the signal as my leverage with broker is different to theirs?

    When you open every trade they will use up some margin. With a lower leverage the amount of margin used will be larger.

    So to answer your question - if the master account does not open too many trades and the trades are small, then it should be ok; but if the master account opens many trades or a large-sized trade, then your account may not able to copy the trades properly because they will use up too much margin on your account.
