What is Futures Copy Trading?

Copy trading is a Binance Futures feature that allows users to automatically copy the trades of more experienced traders (Lead Traders). Here’s how it works: when a Lead Trader makes a trade, the same trade is replicated in the account of the person who has chosen to copy them, based on a proportionate investment size. This means if the Lead Traders profits, so does the copier (and vice versa for losses). 

This is especially appealing to those new to futures trading or those looking to benefit from the expertise of seasoned traders without having to spend a significant amount of time researching and executing trades themselves. It’s a practical way to learn by observing the decisions of experienced traders in real time. For a more detailed exploration of copy trading and its benefits, please refer to our introductory blog

The Need for Innovation in Copy Trading

Since we launched copy trading in October 2023, we’ve noticed one particular challenge for new users: the sheer amount of information available! With countless Lead Traders to choose from, it can take a long time to identify those with the skills and track records that best meet a user’s preference. This barrier is compounded if the interface isn’t as user-friendly as possible, making the process of selecting a Lead Trader more daunting than it needs to be. 

Information is crucial when it comes to trading digital assets, and users need clear, concise information to make choices that align with their goals. Recognizing these challenges, we felt there was a need to update our copy trading solution with a more streamlined selection process, prioritizing and improving the user experience.

Unveiling ‘Discover’: Helping You Find The Best Lead Traders

The futures copy trading ‘Discover’ feature is designed to make it easier for users to connect with the top traders in crypto. ‘Discover’ simplifies the process of finding Lead Traders to follow, using an incredibly straightforward, user-friendly interface. 

With a simple swipe mechanism, users can quickly and easily browse through Lead Traders profiles. Swiping right adds a Lead Trader to your favorites, making it simple to return to their profile later, while swiping left moves you on to the next profile. 

This intuitive interface makes exploring profiles engaging and informative, encouraging users to actively discover and learn about different strategies and performances.

‘Discover’ also makes it simple to view detailed portfolio metrics for each Lead Trader. Users can view performance history, trading strategies, risk management practices, and more, all aimed at providing a transparent and informative overview. This allows users to make more informed decisions on whom to copy, based on the data that matters.

Finally, users should note this enhanced integration lets them easily click [Mock] to test with virtual funds or click [Copy] to trade directly. Mock Trading lets users practice copy trading in a realistic virtual learning environment without investing real money.
