Here are the step-by-step instructions to engage in copy trading of derivatives for the first time on XT.COM.
I. How to Choose a Lead Trader
Before you start trading, make sure that your "Futures Account" has sufficient funds. Next, visit XT.COM Copy Trading or the futures copy trading page via XT.COM APP.
On the “Copy Trading Feed”, you can follow a lead trader based on the following tags: “Profitable”, “Stable”, “Most followers”, and “All traders”. For more information on the lead trader ranking, please refer to the Lead Trader Metrics.
Here’s a tip: You can click the “Leading Traders” profile picture to enter the portfolio page and learn more about their trading performance.
II. Copy Trading Settings
（1）Forward Copy: When a lead trader opens a long position, you will follow the trader and open a long position in the same direction to the trader’s opening.
（2）Reverse Copy: When a lead trader opens a long position, you will follow the trader and open a short position in the opposite direction to the trader’s opening.
2. Follow Method
（1）Fixed Amount: Set a fixed margin for each order. For example, if you set a fixed margin of 100 USDT, the margin for each order will be 100 USDT.
（2）Multiplier: It means that each copy trade has a multiple relationship with the leading trader. For example, if you set BTCUSDT to follow at 3 times, when a leading trader opens a position of 0.1 BTC, you will follow to open a position of 0.3 BTC (0.1*3).
（3）Proportional Copy: It means that the available margin used for each following order will be the same proportion as that used by the trader for their own order. For example, if the lead trader opens a position using 10% of their available margin and you have 100 USDT available in your account, then the margin used for your following order will be 10 USDT.
3. Advanced Settings
（1）T/P and S/L Ratios: Users can customize T/P and S/L ratios, and the system will automatically close the following order when the profit/loss exceeds the set ratio. The set T/P and S/L ratio will be applied to each order that you follow from the lead trader. For example, if you set it to 50%, the system will close the order at the market price when the profit/loss exceeds 50%.
（2）If the lead trader sets a stop-loss/take-profit, all following orders will also close at the market price as the lead trader’s.
（3）If the stop-loss/take-profit set by the lead trader triggers a market close before your set stop-loss/take-profit ratio, then your settings will become invalid.
（4）Leverage: You can set the leverage for each long/short position, and the leverage will be automatically synced to the leverage parameter in the trading interface.
（5）Copy Futures Trading: You can select the futures pairs you want to follow, and they are selected by default.
（6）Select and click “I have read and agreed Copy User Agreement” and “Follow now”.
