How to Automatically Copy the Winning
Strategies of Professional Traders

COPY TRADING SECRETS | WWW.BACKBAYMARKETS.COM

Introduction: The Copy Trading Secret


There is a revolution at hand.
Most people dont realize it, but technology is once again changing the game.
If you wanted the services of a professional trader not too long ago, you would need to invest in
a hedge fund or a managed account. That is, if you could stomach the significant fees and huge
minimum deposits.
Lately, theres a much easier way. By using a copy trading service, you can follow the winning
strategies of professional traders, with returns such as +151%, +295%, +385%** and more. The fees
are reasonable, and the investment is only ever what you want it to be.
Its about access. Access to knowledge, access to expertise, and access to results. Copy trading is
democratizing what used to be exclusive to the very wealthy. In the past, it was not worth it for a top
trader to manage small sums, with all the effort that goes into setting up the account, compliance and
ongoing management. Technology copy trading to be exact is bridging that gap magnificently.
A few Innovative companies are at the forefront, making the strategies of institutional and ex-bank
traders available for you to follow though their copy trading platform.
But that is not the copy trading secret.
The secret is this: Brokers are clambering over each other to get a chunk of this business. So much
so that if you conduct your business through them, they will foot most (if not all) of the fees that you
would ordinarily pay to the trader.
Thats right.
You pay only a small fee for this service, and the broker will pay the rest.
Whats more, things can only get better. As more in the industry start waking up to the potential copy
trading offers, competition for your business will increase, and the deals will get even more appealing.
In this guide, we will cover the ins and outs of a successful copy trading strategy, while teaching you
how to manage your risks, so you can make the most out of this significant opportunity.

*The typical fee for a hedge fund is 2% of assets under management, and 20% of profits, though this
does vary depending on the fund. In addition, most successful strategies have significant deposit
minimums of $250,000 or greater.

How Copy Trading Works


Copy trading is, in essence, actually quite simple.
To begin copying the trades of another trader, you simply establish your Forex trading account with a
supporting broker. Once the account is established and ready to go, the trades that are placed in the
master account are simultaneously placed into your account.

Of course, your account will have a different amount of capital to the master account, so these trades
are scaled by percentage to your account size. This means that the returns on the master account
will be mirrored (as accurately as possible) in your account, based on your account equity.
In some cases you will may also need to provide an authority/letter of direction for the trader to
execute trades on your account.
Note: The trader does not have access to your funds. No one but you has access to your
funds. The trades are simply copied from the master account into your account.

Lets look at an example:


Joe is looking to invest in a copy trading provider, and likes the look of Trader A who has had a return
of 292% over the last 3 years*.
To begin following Trader A, Joe first opens an account with a supporting broker, and subscribes to
the signal by paying a $59 monthly fee. He then provides written authority for the trader to operate on
his account.
Next, Joe funds his account with $10,000 of investment capital. At the same time, the copy trading
provider connects his account to the traders account, and configures it according to his risk
management preferences.
After this, trading commences on his account, and he generates the same percentage return as the
master account. In the first month, the trader makes 10%, so Joes account is now worth $11,000. In
the following month, the trader loses 4%. So does Joe, who now has $10560 in his account, having
lost $460.
The returns will continue to be mirrored until Joe decides to close the account and withdraw his
capital, which he is free to do at any time. It is important to note that clients can unsubscribe very
easily in the back office. There are no lengthy contracts or lock up periods like hedge funds and
managed accounts.

The Vetting Process


For a trader to be selected as a copy trading provider, they go through a rigorous due
diligence process.

The Back Bay vetting process


1. We start by reaching out to our network of professional traders, commodity trading
advisors, and asset managers, to ascertain what programs might be a good fit. To
be safe, we only reach out to traders who have a minimum of one year of live and
audited trading results. Most traders have five or more years of professional money
management experience.
2. Our analytics team goes through an all-encompassing statistical and risk analysis
process to determine whether the program will suit our clients needs.
3. If the program makes it to the gestation period, we then put it on a live account with
Back Bay Markets. The account will need to trade under our umbrella for a minimum of
three months before it can be offered to clients.
4. Once properly vetted and tested, we are ready to release the program to our clients.
Clients should never expect to have more than five to ten programs available at any
time with Back Bay. We believe in a small amount of high quality solutions for our
clients.
Currently, there are four live providers that have made it through the rigorous
vetting process, and another close to launch in Beta mode.
1. The Omega Program. The Omega program is managed by a well-respected 15-year
industry professional. Historical performance: +151%
2. The Omicron Growth Program. Omicron is managed by a 10+ year industry
professional, having spent their entire career in the financial markets, including five
years of private retail Forex trading, consulting with numerous investment firms to
develop and test trading strategies in the Forex market. Historical performance: +385%
3. The Lambda Ascent program. The chief overseer of this program, which works
by exploiting market anomalies, has 10+ years FX experience. It works partly by
usingcustomer sentiment pulled from one of the worlds largest retail Forex brokers.
Historical performance: +293%
4. The Theta Program. The program is managed by a 30+ year Forex veteran and
well-respected analyst, who uses a discretionary trading approach combined with a
comprehensive risk management plan. Historical performance: +93%
5. The Alpha Major Program. Alpha Major is managed by a professional money
manager with over 50 million in client assets, utilizing a mix of proprietary indicators to

Selecting a Strategy
Once you have decided you want to invest in copy trading, its time to decide which strategy best fits
your needs. Here is the information you will have available to you, and how to make sense of it.

About the trader


Generally, you will want to follow a trader with a decent amount of industry experience. Look for
traders that have five or more years within the industry.

About the strategy


There are as many different approaches to the market as there are traders, but they do tend to fall
into broad categories. Some of these you will want avoid, while others will give your insight into what
type of risk vs. reward to expect.

Algorithmic trading strategies


Many trading strategies rely on computerized models to determine when to buy and sell. This
typically is represented in the EA/Robot market, where clients buy the algorithm for a 1 time fee.
These types of strategies can generate significant returns but if the market conditions change, the
algorithm may not adapt as quickly as other trading styles or change at all, so there may be periods
of losses.
We look for Algorithmic traders who employ discretionary oversight and constantly make adjustments
to compensate for market changes. The goal of the program manager will be to run several different
algorithms that counter balance each other so when one is losing another one is winning and vice
versa.
An example of an algorithmic copy trading program with discretionary oversight is: Omega Genesis.

Discretionary trading strategies


A discretionary trader places trades based on their own analysis of the markets. While they will
sometimes use statistical models or algorithms to assist in the decision making process, generally
they take into consideration both fundamental and technical factors before making a decision to place
a trade.
A good discretionary trader will have years under their belt, as well as a carefully crafted and
comprehensive risk management framework. Discretionary traders dont always generate the same
kinds of returns in the short term as algorithmic traders, but they do tend to be consistent and reliable
so you may feel comfortable investing larger sums in discretionary trader with good track record.
An example of a discretionary copy trading program is Theta Trader.

Martingale stay away


Lastly, there are some strategies that you may want to sidestep. Anything that includes a martingale

COPY TRADING SECRETS | WWW.BACKBAYMARKETS.COM

style money management model is dangerous. These types of strategies double down when they
are losing, but this can only last for so long, before a trend will cause a significant loss.

Maximum drawdown
An important consideration in selecting a copy trading provider is the previous drawdown that the
system has experienced.
While it would be nice if our investments always went up in value, that is not the reality. They all go
through losing periods on occasion, before recovering to new highs. When a system is in one of
these losing periods, it is called a drawdown.
When assessing the copy trading profile you want to engage, look at the maximum drawdown and
see if it fit your personal risk profile. Generally you would look for a drawdown of no more than 40%
at most, with around 20-50% preferable. Some drawdown is inevitable, but its important to limit this
based on what youre comfortable with. In addition please see altering your drawndown below.
Having said that be careful not to throw out the baby with the bath water. It is quite possible for an
excellent money making strategy to have suffered a drawdown due to a market event. That does not
mean that the strategy is not going to perform in future. Always reach out to your signal or system
provider to discuss any questions with a particular drawdown.
Below are some skills that will help you manage drawdowns effectively.

Altering the drawdown profile


You can effectively alter the drawdown profile of a strategy by allocating less funding to the
strategy. For example, if a program has a drawdown of 30%, you could allocate it half of the
normal amount, effectively reducing your overall drawdown potential to 15%. Of course returns
would be halved in that case, too. This can sometimes be done by editing the settings in the copy
trading back-end, rather than by moving funds to and from your account.

Understanding returns
When you assess a trader, you will see monthly, weekly, and annual returns per trader. Of course the
greater returns the better, but you must consider this alongside the maximum drawdown.
For example: if one trader returns 100% with a 40% maximum drawdown, they will have the same
risk profile as a trader with a 50% return and a 20% maximum drawdown.
Look for traders with a proven track record of consistent returns over a period of time. Dont judge
a program but any performance outliers. If a program is up huge or down huge in one particular
month it could be due to a extreme market move. Base your analysis on the historical performance
collectively.
It is also helpful to look at the biggest winning and losing months to get an idea of what to expect
from the system.

COPY TRADING SECRETS | WWW.BACKBAYMARKETS.COM

Understanding the equity curve


One way to tell if a trader produces consistent returns is to look at the equity curve.
The equity curve is simply a graph of performance over time. The smoother the equity curve the
better, as long as it is sloping upwards of course!
For example, you can see the equity curve here of the Lambda ascent program taken from myfxbook:

Lambda Ascents verified myfxbook equity curve


In this case, the equity curve shows that the trader continues to grow his account consistently over
time.

How long the strategy has been trading


The longer a strategy has been trading, the more it is proven to stand up to different market
conditions, and the more confidence you can have investing in it.
While sometimes it can be good to get into a new program while it is running hot you will want to
have very tight risk management rules in place. This is the topic of the next section.

COPY TRADING SECRETS | WWW.BACKBAYMARKETS.COM

Understanding MyFXBook
What is Myfxbook?
Myfxbook is an online automated analytical tool for forex traders. It supports over 100
brokers, enabling clients to track, compare, verify, analyze and share live and demo
trading results/activity. Trade data is posted on their live servers to allow clients to see
authenticated results in real time.

Why do we use it to verify performance?


We wanted to find the most transparent and widely accepted means for individual clients
to view live results on any trader we post for FREE. As a totally independent 3rd party,
there is no conflict of interest. Thus, the results dont lie. If it is posted on the site on a
live account, it happened and there is no way to change or hide any details. Real time
reporting allows clients to see audited style results without having to wait for the auditor
on a monthly basis.
Here is a breakdown of the terminology you need to know when using myfxbook:
Gain total historical performance of the program.
Drawdown the total amount the program has ever gone into the negative. It
measures the largest single drop from peak to bottom in the value of a portfolio (before a
new peak is achieved).
Track Record Verified (with a green check mark) is visible when the data myfxbook
receives matches the data supplied by the broker about the live account.
Monthly average percentage of Historical Gain divided monthly
Real is the term that refers to a live account with real money at a particular broker
(not a demo account).
Profit Factor is the sum of winning trades vs losing. The higher the number the
better.
Monthly Analytics Tab this is a good way to look at the monthly historical results to
gauge momentum / consistency of the strategy.

Mastering the Art of Managing Risk and


Protecting Profits
The best traders are risk managers first, and traders second. Before they worry about profits, they
take care of how they manage risk exposure and losses. This is the approach that you should take as
well.

You are a risk manager first and a trader second.


Remember, although you have another trader placing trades on your behalf, you are still ultimately
responsible for your own profits and losses. Think of it like you are a money manager, allocating your
funds to other managers to trade.
You will still have rules around how much you will allocate to each strategy, what returns you expect
to achieve, and how much of a loss you would be prepared to take before you withdraw your funds
from the trader.
Having a plan like this will allow you to invest with confidence.

How much funding to allocate to a trader


Your first decision as a risk manager is to decide how much capital to allocate to copy trading.
Copy trading is considered a high risk/high reward investment strategy. While the potential returns
can be large, there is also the risk of loss.
Because of this, generally a small portion of your overall portfolio should be allocated to Copy
Trading. While we cannot suggest what the right amount will be for you, there are minimum
investments that are typically used by each copy trading provider. These suggested minimum
amounts are listed in the profiles we include later in this report.
The good news is you can get started with far less than what you would have had to in the past,
investing in a managed account or hedge fund, with minimum amounts starting at around $1000 for
some strategies. Of course, you need to consider the impact of costs on a small account and many
traders prefer to start with an amount of $10,000 or greater because of this.

Managing drawdowns
A drawdown occurs when there is a loss from an equity high in an account. For example: if your
account had lost 5%, then it would be said to be in a 5% drawdown. Drawdowns are part and parcel
with trading and are to be expected and planned for.
There are two types of drawdown that you might experience. The first is a drawdown on your initial
investment. As an investor, it is critical that you protect your core capital otherwise you cannot
continue to invest. For example, if you invested $10,000, and your account drew down to $9,500, this
would be a drawdown to your initial capital.

COPY TRADING SECRETS | WWW.BACKBAYMARKETS.COM

11

The second type of drawdown is a drawdown to your profits. For example: if you started with
$10,000, went up to $15,000 and then had a drawdown to $14,000, you would have a drawdown to
your profits.
Both types of drawdowns require slightly different management techniques. As an example, you
might be less willing to risk your core capital and more willing to risk your profits. This is a good
example of the old investing adage cut your losses short, and let your profits run.

Cut your losses short, and let your profits run.


To do this, you first need to understand the previous maximum drawdown the trader has had. For
example, a trader may have had a drawdown of 20% previously. This will be a good guide of what to
expect.
This means that in the long-term (when you have some profit), you might be quite happy to keep
following the trader as long as they dont go beyond the 20% drawdown threshold from the highest
point.
But for your initial capital, you may not want to allow this. Instead, you might allow for a 5%
drawdown, after which point you might cut your trade size in half (you can do this though the copy
trading service) until your loss is recovered.
You might then allow for another 5% drawdown at the smaller size, before stopping trading. That
means that even if the strategy does have a 20% drawdown, you will have lost only 10% of your
initial capital, leaving you in good shape to allocate your funds to a better performing manager.
While the likelihood of this scenario is relatively low, it is better to be prepared. While the numbers
above serve as an example, you will need to determine the right number for you based on your
investment objectives.

Taking profits
Key to an effective money management plan is having rules for profit taking.
Over time, your copy trading investment is going to produce profits, which need to be managed
just as your risk does. Again, when developing your profit taking plan, you want to think about your
objectives.
While it may be tempting to simply shoot for the stars, over the long-term this is going to mean you
end up leaving money on the table. All traders run hot and cold, and its your job to make the most of
it when they run hot and then keep your profits when they run cold.
There are several ways to design a profit-taking plan, and here are some considerations to take into
account:
What percentage of your profits do you want to withdraw, as opposed to leave in to compound?
Compounding your account is an excellent way to grow your investment, but it needs to be
balanced with a prudent approach to locking in your gains.

COPY TRADING SECRETS | WWW.BACKBAYMARKETS.COM

12

How often will you withdraw profits? You may decide to withdraw some profit each month, quarter
or year.
Will you withdraw profits based on a percentage return figure? For example, will you take profits
out when your account is up by 20%? 30%? What are your goals?
How will you handle a large windfall profit? For example, a trader may have an exceptionally good
month, and it may be prudent to take some of those profits.
How much of your profit might you be willing to give back, before you withdraw some? For
example, if a trader has a 5% drawdown, you might use this as an indication of when to take
profit.
As a professional investor, you want to design a method of profit taking that uses these
considerations to achieve your goals, and not be too cautious or greedy. In other words, its best not
to leave it all in, and its best not to take it all out. Your job as an investor is to find the line.

When to stop following a trader


You dont need to wait until a drawdown level is hit before you stop following a trader.
In fact if you understand the expected performance of the strategy, you can cut your allocation, or
stop following a trader, if their performance falls outside of expectations.
For example if a trader typically has returns of +3 to + 10 percent per month, and all of a sudden he
has 3-4 months with returns in the negative, you might want to cut back your allocation and consider
restoring it gradually over time as results improve again. This limits your risk in terms of that trader,
and frees up some capital to be allocated elsewhere if this is in line with your investment plan.
We always tell investors to set their own drawdown level. It is good to use the actual historical
numbers as a barometer, but also have a number in mind as a personal risk threshold. You will want
to get out when/if a trader hit that number whether it is smaller or larger than the actual systems
historical Max DD number.

Is copy trading right for you?


If your risk threshold for a Max Drawdown is less than 10% then this may not be the right investment for you. Investing in the currency market is high risk and involves understanding the risks.
There will be equity fluctuations + or 10% in any high risk investment opportunity.

13

Creating a Copy Trading Portfolio


One of the best ways to limit your risk and improve your returns is to diversify across a number of
traders.
Ideally, you want to create a portfolio of non-correlated trading styles and strategies. In simple terms,
what this means is that when one trader is not performing, you have another trader that is making up
for it.
This will help you to have what is called a smooth equity curve:

When choosing your basket of traders you want to consider the following:
Do the traders historically have non-correlated returns? Take a look at the winning and losing
months of the traders and see if you can find ones that tend to win while others are losing.
Do they use different trading styles such as discretionary, algorithmic, trend following, countertrend? It is good to have a mix of styles and approaches.
How many traders to have in a portfolio? While it is good to diversify, you need to make sure you
have enough capital to allocate to each trader so any expenses are covered and you have the
potential for profits. This may mean if you have a small account you need to stick to one or two
traders at most.
Most importantly, you want to take time to answer the how much question.

How much to invest in each trader?


It is the how much component of your investment strategy that determines if you achieve your
objectives or not.
When deciding how much to allocate to each trader, you could split your funds evenly across each
trader. But this might not get you the desired effect of balancing one trade against another to diversify

COPY TRADING SECRETS | WWW.BACKBAYMARKETS.COM

14

your risk and performance.


A more effective way to allocate capital is consider the risk vs. returns profile of the trader.
Look to understand the previous drawdown and returns, and allocate capital to even out the impact of
each trader on your portfolio. For example, if one traders returns and drawdown are typically twice as
big as anothers, then you might allocate half as much to that trader. This ensures that any one trader
does not have an outsized impact on your returns positively or negatively. Remember that smooth
equity curve you were after? This is central to how you get it.

Rebalancing
Running a portfolio of traders requires some active management.
As one trader makes profits, their proportion of your portfolio will increase, leaving it unbalanced.
To counteract this effect, you may want to rebalance your portfolio. This could be done simply by
taking some profits out of your account, or by moving funds from one copy trading provider to another
when things become uneven.
Perhaps you could schedule this on a set timeframe, such as every three months, or you may decide
to rebalance when a traders returns increase past a certain point.

Why Use Back Bay Markets Copy Trading


Service
Not all copy trading providers are the same. In fact, it may seem like most are not even on the same
planet!
Too often a copy trading provider will let any old trader offer their services to the customers, with little
or no vetting process. This usually means the trader has little experience managing money, or a track
record that does not stand up to scrutiny.
With us its different. We know that:
We only bring you the cream of the crop, and only after they have been though our stringent
evaluation process. This means you can invest with confidence and surety, knowing that we have
done the hard work on your behalf.
In addition, clients know they have the resources of our significant support infrastructure at their back,
to help navigate them though this opportunity.
With a core belief in exceptional customer service we ensure our clients know that they can
always contact us with ANY questions.

The technological edge


While the process itself is simple, the technology behind the copy trading solution needs to be
robust and functional. We believe that having the best traders is not enough: we also have a strong
technological edge.
Back Bay Markets trade copying technology is truly world-class. You may have read about other
trade copiers using multiple VPSs and a master server processing all of the data we, however,
have tied into the MetaQuotes (MT4) API directly, allowing our clients to receive the cleanest fills in
the shortest amount of time. This allows our clients to mirror our master traders accounts almost
seamlessly.
By tying directly into the MetaQuotes API and the brokers trade servers, we have eliminated the
need for clients to keep their platform running 24/7 as trade copiers in the past have often required.
Our trade copier eliminates the latency delay in placing trades across sub-accounts that older trade
copying setups have been plagued with, and can copy accurate lot sizing whether your account size
is $500 or $500,000.
Our trade copier is not limited by order types as other trade copiers are. We have extensively tested
Market orders, Pending orders, Partial closes, and the closeby function.

COPY TRADING SECRETS | WWW.BACKBAYMARKETS.COM

Our trade copier also allows subscribers to modify their risk settings. If, for example, youre following
a trader who has very large swings (perhaps the trader is up 50% one month, down 40% the next
month, and up 10% the following month), our trade copying technology permits you as a subscriber
to modify your risk settings to scale down the orders placed. Say you chose 10% instead of 100%: in
this scenario, although the master account had the wild swings, your account wouldve been up 5%,
down 4%, and up 1% - with our trade copier, you have a great sense of control over your account.
We have also equipped our trade copier with emergency fail-safes. Stop losses and take profits rest
not only on the master account, but are copied to all sub-accounts individually as well. So, should the
master account ever become disconnected, your account will still follow all existing trades flawlessly.
Theres also no need to worry about latency (ping, lag, call it what you will). If a trade cannot be
copied within 100ms, and the price has moved over an acceptable threshold that you can set, the
trade will simply not be copied.

The Back Bay Markets Multi Account Manager


The Back Bay Markets Multi-Account Manager (MAM) software is a powerful tool for professional
asset managers and signal services to trade simultaneously on several investor accounts. It is an
essential integrated software tool to quickly execute block orders with one click under a master
account arrangement and conveniently automate trade allocations to customer accounts.
All account processing is centralized and server based, which allows the fastest and most reliable
execution. Our software allows for hundreds of accounts to be traded with one click and virtually no
delay in allocations.
