How to make money as a Signal Provider?

If you want to make money with ZuluTrade as a signal provider you first of all have to sign up with ZuluTrade and create a trader account. Once you have started your trading activity you will automatically be ranked by the ZuluTrade ranking system. Compared to eToro and ayondo even US located traders are welcome to sell their signals here! In the European version the competition is way harder and the ranking system is just showing the top 1000 traders. In order to rank amongst them and in order to create new followers you should basically mind to:

  • keep your drawdown below 30% of your balance
  • trade at least 12 weeks in a row continuously
  • have a profit of more than 3 pips per trade.

You should avoid scalping strategies with ZuluTrade as often the signal cannot be copied quick enough to the follower’s platform. Instead you should go for trend following strategies such as larger swing trading and position trading strategies. In order to avoid slippage and bad order executions followers and signal providers should both have an AAAFX account as this is the house broker of ZuluTrade and the signal copy service works smoothly.

Trading platforms

If you want to sell your trading signals with ZuluTrade you have several trading platforms on offer:

  • ZuluTrade+, the build in solution of ZuluTrade
  • ActTrader
  • Metatrader 4 of compatible brokers
  • ZuluTrade VPs in order to run your expert advisor day and night on a VPS server.

How much can I earn?

A signal provider earns 0.5 pips per closed follower Lot of each live account. Pip costs vary according to the currency pair traded. Signal providers from the US are compensated by a fixed monthly membership fee. The monthly membership fee is calculated using the following formula:

((Aggregate customer capital following the Trader / Initial Balance) / 100) × Subscription fee

  • 5 – 20 Signals = $50 Subscription fee
  • 21 – 30 = $100
  • 31 – 60 = $200
  • 61 – unlimited = $350

If you are a professional daytrader and want to make additional money with your trading signals or if you just want to follow a professional CFD or forex trader you should now open a ZuluTrade account and try it out.
