Social Trading is fully integrated in the Sirix platform and offers you access to the live trades of others.

Sirix Social TradingThe Sirix “Social Stream” contains the live trades and pending orders placed by other traders as well other updates such as how many people copied the trade. If you like you can directly copy trades from the “Social Stream”.

Alternatively you can analyse and review other traders by looking at their historical performance data. If you like the performance of a trader then you can “watch” them to get updates in your “Traders I watch” stream or “copy” them to automatically copy all their future trades in your account.

When you auto copy someone with Sirix you have two options:

Allocate an amount of equity to the traders, which means their trades will be copied proportionally based on your allocation and their live account balance. E.g. if you allocate $1,000 and their account size is $10,000, when they execute 1 lot in their account, 1 mini lot will be opened in yours for the same trade.

Copy fixed-size positions means you enter the amount you want to use every time a trade from the master trader is copied in your account.
