You can login to your account by entering your ZuluTrade Username or your ZuluTrade registered email address, together with your ZuluTrade password at www.zulutrade.com. Alternatively you may login using your Facebook credentials.
When you are at My Account, the following information is always displayed next to your Profile photo: Name, Account Type (live/demo), Broker logo, Account number and Equity.
Just above your account information you will find buttons to set your Social Networks - connect your trading account with your accounts at Facebook and Twitter, so that notifications will appear at your social media feeds when you close trades at your ZuluTrade account.

If your Broker account is compatible with the MetaTrader 4 (MT4) platform, you can confirm whether your account is properly linked with your broker when you first log into your ZuluTrade account.
If your Broker account is not compatible with the MetaTrader 4 (MT4) platform but with another platform (e.g. Trading Station, AVA Trader, etc.), then your account is automatically connected upon activation.
For MT4 compatible accounts, you may confirm whether your account is properly linked with your Broker by checking your ‘Settings’ tab. Scroll below to ‘Broker Account Settings’ section and check your account connection status:
If your Account Status is ‘Connected to Broker’, it means that your Broker Account has been automatically connected to your ZuluTrade account, so you are ready to start trading via ZuluTrade.
If your Account Status is ‘Disconnected’, you need to take action to connect your ZuluTrade account to your Broker account. In order to do so you need to input your Broker Account Username (numbers only) together with your Broker Account Password (MT4) and click on Connect Broker Account. After a few seconds you should get a message saying ‘Congratulations! You are now connected to your broker account.’
Your Account Status should now be Connected to Broker.
If for any reason your account fails to connect, please make sure you are using the correct MT4 Master password. If the process still fails although you are using the correct password, then do not hesitate to Contact Us.
Please note that the required password is the MT4 Master password, and not the Read-Only (Investor) password. If you provide the Read-Only (Investor) password, although your ZuluTrade account will be connected to your Broker account, you will not be able to receive any signals as it will be set to read-only mode.
If you do not have the Broker Account Username and Broker Account Password available, then please contact your Broker as they can remind/reset them for you – unfortunately, ZuluTrade does not have access to this information and thus cannot provide it.
Note: Please remember that if you ever change your Broker Password, connectivity with your ZuluTrade account will be lost, so you will need to repeat this process, and re-connect your Broker account to ZuluTrade using the updated Broker Password.

There is also a link from which you can easily post messages to your Public Page.
Here you may fill in the details of your bank account in order to request your commissions from live accounts that have registered in ZuluTrade as a result of an invitation from you.
This link will redirect you to the present User Guide in order to clarify any doubts you may have.
Here you can place manual trades as you see fit. The rates displayed are received directly from your broker, so it is the same as if you were trading from your broker platform. You will notice one box per currency pair with the sell and buy price, and also a display of the spread in pips in the middle.
When the market is open, rates will be constantly highlighted alternating between green and red, indicating whether market tendencies are currently up or downwards for this pair. You can re-arrange the pairs by dragging them over, remove them by pressing the X icon, or highlight them by pressing the yellow bulb icon. Please note that all available currency pairs may not be displayed; you can add new pairs by checking the ‘Select Symbols’ box and then selecting on the currency pair of your choice. Please note that after you have added currency pairs as mentioned above, all the changes made to this table will be saved and retrieved when you log back in the next time. In case you would like to view all available currency pairs displayed in a list, you can select the ‘Simple’ view.
If you wish to place a manual trade, simply click on either Buy or Sell for the pair you wish to trade with; a popup window will then appear. This window will consist of the current market price and ZuluTrade’s default limit and stop setting at 500 pips. You may change the current market price by deselecting the ‘Market’ box, thus enabling you to place a different market price, which in turn will create a pending order. You may also amend the default Stop and Limit as well. Once you have entered the information you wish, simply click on OK and the trade will appear either in your open positions or pending orders accordingly.
Here you will find a redirecting link for ZuluTrade’s Economic Calendar. The Economic Calendar is a dynamic tool that allows you to consider the impact of important global events on specific currencies and can be a powerful advisor for your trading decisions. It lists the important events of the day, the currency pair(s) that are anticipated to be affected and also the anticipated tendency (upwards/downwards). All events are displayed in the timezone of your PC, but it can be reset to any timezone fits you better. You are also able to filter economic events by selecting the timeframe, impact as well as currency.
Here, if you click on Rate Charts you will be able to generate different chart types for any of your currency pairs, set the timeframe, as well as have access to indicators. Please note that the charts generated here display the rates used by ZuluTrade for its demo users and Traders trading directly from the ZuluTrade platform. So although they may be handy for studying the market, the exact rates displayed may differ from your broker’s rates. Of course you can always see your broker’s exact rates either from the Trade tab at your ZuluTrade account, or directly from your broker’s own platform.
This is where executed signals that Traders place in your account will show up. Here you can see what your current earnings or losses are at the moment for each trade, together with a summary of all trades.
By default your positions will appear grouped by Trader, so that you can easily see the total profit of all positions by a specific Trader. However you may also opt to view your positions ungrouped by selecting ‘Details’ or grouped per currency pair and see the PnL for the specific currency pair by selecting ‘Summary’ – this option may prove to be especially useful for monitoring hedged positions.
By default the system will reproduce Sounds in order to alarm you for opening and closing positions, but you may turn them off from the relevant button ‘Sound: On/Off’.
For each trade that is open under your open positions tab, you can change certain of its settings. By clicking on the current ‘Stop’ value of the trade, you will bring up a popup window where you can amend the current Stop value. Please note that by doing so, you will overwrite any Stop value previously set by the Provider or by yourself on the Trader settings. Please note that the amount you enter is at market rate. Similarly you can adjust the ‘Limit’ value for the trade. Please note that after your have updated the Stop or Limit, any subsequent Stop or Limit updates will be received normally at your account according to your settings.
To the far right of the trade you will see a selection titled ‘Close’. By selecting this for each individual trade, you will then be prompted to a confirmation window, where you can either confirm or cancel your Close request. Upon confirmation the trade will close and should no longer appear in your Positions tab. Take into consideration that sometimes there may a brief delay of a few seconds between closing the trades and displaying that on your Positions tab; if you notice a delay, please try using the ‘Update Now’ button. You may also close down all trades from each Trader by clicking on the ‘Close All’ button on the far right of each Trader.
Apart from closing each individual trade or all trades of a Trader, you are also given the option to close all currently open positions with a single click from the relevant button bar ‘Close all Open Positions’.
At this page you are also given the option to take a fast glance at the trades that are currently open at your Traders without having to search on their pages. You may simply select the Trader’s name from the toggle bar under ‘Show Current Trader Trades’. Trades that will appear at a brown background are also open in your account; in this way you can easily compare whether you and your Traders have the same trades open, and monitor whether you have missed any trade, or if any trade has closed out prematurely in your account or stayed open in your account despite having been closed at your Provider’s account.
This function enables you to take full control of a trade opened at your account from a Trader. By clicking on the relevant open-lock icon the trade gets locked – this means that no further updates (Stop/Limit/Close etc) executed by the Trader regarding this trade will be broadcast at your account. As a result this trade will now only be closed if the set Stop/Limit is reached or if you do so manually. Once the trade is locked, the icon will change to a secured lock icon
You can unlock a locked trade at any given time.
If you click on the Date Opened of each trade under your Positions tab, this will bring up a pop-up window with additional information on the course of the trade, including all updates, highest profit, worst drawdown, a graphical representation etc. Here you can also find the Provider Ticket and Broker Ticket, which are essential IDs if you wish to contact ZuluTrade over specific trades.
Here you will find your full trading history, with all the trades that have opened and closed in your account. By default the system will display this information for the timeframe of one calendar month, but you may select any timeframe you wish since your account opened until the present day.
Together with all detailed information, you will also have graphic representations to display your profit in your base currency, in Pips as well as Monthly profit.
All your trades will be listed in full detail, such as the name of the Trader who opened them, trade type (BUY or SELL), currency pair, lot size and number of lots, Date Open, Date Closed, Opening and Closing Price, High and Low of each trade (the highest and lowest point reached by the trade before closing), Profit, and the Total Accumulative Profit adding all trades in the above chosen timeframe. The trades are listed by Date Closed, but you may click on the title of any column in order to re-arrange the data by any other criterion you prefer.
To the far left of every trade you will notice a plus sign (+); by hovering over with your mouse, the following trade details will pop up: Provider and Broker Ticket (essential IDs for contacting ZuluTrade about the specific trade), Net and Gross PnL, Interest and Commission. You can also click on this icon to generate a pop-up window showing you a graph with the High and Low points reached by this trade, whether the trade was opened at market price or if it was a pending order, etc.
You are also given the option to download your full account History in an Excel file by clicking on ‘Export to Excel’.
From this tab you can also look at the ‘Trade History Log’, where all System Messages and Notifications are held for a period of one month. So if for example, you notice that a Trader you are following has opened a trade but it was not received in your account, you can have a look here and see if there is a relevant error message that will clarify why the trade did not open at your account.
From this tab you can invite other users to the ZuluTrade platform and earn commissions based on their trades. Here you are given an e-mail template that may be easily sent by providing your contacts’ e-mail addresses, as well as direct links to popular social media websites so that you may easily invite your contacts. As per our affiliate program, you will be receiving commissions from any live account registering via your link. For more details, please look at our Affiliate Program Guide.
The Settings tab appears only when the ZuluTrade platform Mode is set to Advanced
When you first access the Settings tab of your account, you will notice ZuluTrade’s two Risk Allocation Modes; Auto Mode and Custom.
- Risk Allocation Mode: AUTO
In this mode you are given a Risk Meter Bar which you can set to the amount of risk you want to take.
This method uses historical data (annual drawdown, profit) and your account balance to calculate how many lots should be allocated per provider signal. This method is based on executing all provider trades without any customized settings. However, if you would like the system to allocate more to a specific provider than the others in your portfolio, you may do that by increasing the provider’s Risk Weight. Please click here for more details.
In AUTO Mode, you may only set the Max Open Trades per provider, as well as the Risk Weight for each provider; the system will select the number of lots per trade for you, and you will be following the provider as per his own Stop and Limit values.
- Risk Allocation Mode: CUSTOM
In Custom Mode, you can configure yourself nearly all parameters relating to trades received from Traders. The settings you may set for yourself in CUSTOM Mode are the following:
The number of lots of each trade to be opened by the specific Trader; irrespective of what size the provider is trading, his trades will be opening in this size at your account.
They will be indicated as (Standard), (Mini) or (Micro) on the column heading, depending on the Lot Size you have selected in the Lot Size setting. As this affects the number of lots for each trade, you need to also take into consideration the Maximum Open Lots setting as well in order to ensure that the selected number of Lots will be opened for each Trader and in your account as a whole.
Example: Let’s assume you have selected 2 Traders in your portfolio, Provider X and Provider Z. If Lots multiplier is set to 1 for Provider X and 2 for Provider Z, this means that for each trade of Provider X 1 lot will open in your account (irrespective of the number of lots the Trader trades) and 2 lots will open in your account for each trade of Provider Z, again, irrespective of the number of lots the Trader trades.
ZuluGuard™ is an account protection feature that monitors each Trader’s trading behavior and automatically takes action when a radical change in his trading strategy is detected. You can choose one or more protection schemes for each Provider added at your Portfolio and the actions you wish to take.
The three Protection Schemes are:
The three Actions are:
Max Open Trades:
The maximum number of trades the Trader can open at the same time. This also includes pending orders.
Example: Let’s assume that you have selected 2 Traders in your portfolio, Provider X and Provider Z with 1 Lot Multiplier for each one, and Max Total Open Trades set to 4 for Provider X and 1 for Provider Z. This means that Provider X can open a maximum of 4 trades/pending orders at any given point of time into your account, and Provider Z can open a maximum of 1 trade/pending order at any given point of time.
So in case Provider Z has one trade open at your account, if he opens another one, it will not open in your account and you will get an error message like this: Did not open 1.0 more std lot(s) for provider Z, BUY EUR/USD. Total max trades for provider setting was 1, open trades & orders for provider were 1. So overall in your account, you will not have more that 5 trades/pending orders at any given point of time.
Max Open Lots:
The total number of lots the Trader can open in your account at the same time, from all trades and orders.
Example: Let’s assume you have a Trader in your portfolio, and you have set to receive up to 3 trades of 1 mini lot each; ‘(Mini) Lots’ set to 1 and ‘Max Open Trades’ set to 3. If you enter 3 in ‘Max Open Lots’, you may receive indeed up to 3 trades x 1 mini lot each. The same if you set Max Open Lots to ‘No Limit’. However if you set ‘Max Open Lots’ to 2, since your ‘(Mini) Lots’ setting is set to 1, even though your ‘Max Open Trades’ may be set to 3 you will not receive more than 2 trades from this provider.
Thus in case you would like to receive exactly as many trades from this provider as per your ‘Max Open Trades’ and as many lots as those set in ‘(Mini) Lots’, it is advisable that you set ‘Max Open Lots’ to ‘No Limit’.
Max Open Trades/Currency:
The maximum number of trades you want to receive on a specific currency (both BUY and SELL) from this Trader at the same time.
Example: If you set this to 1, if the Trader opens a EUR/USD trade and then opens another EUR/USD one, you will not receive it even if your other settings do allow it.
This function enables you to reverse the direction of the signals sent from this Trader; SELL trades will be executed as BUY, Stop will become Limit, and vice versa. This mode is aimed to be used with rather unsuccessful Traders, aiming towards profits from reversing their bad trading skills.
Example: If a Trader you have set to Reverse opens a BUY USD/AUD trade, then a SELL USD/AUD will be opened in your account. If he has set a 25 pips stop, then your trade will receive a 25 pips limit, and if he has set a 50 pips limit your trade will receive a 50 pips stop.
Here you can enter the maximum number of pips per lot you would like the trade to earn before it is closed to lock the profit. To avoid Broker rejection of the calculated Limit value, it is advisable that you enter 15 pips or more (especially for exotic currencies). If you enter any value in this field, you will not receive any Limit signals from the provider. Please note that any change made in this setting will be applied to future trades, not currently open ones.
Here you can enter the maximum number of pips per lot you allow the trade to lose before it is closed to prevent further loss. To avoid Broker rejection of the calculated Stop value, it is advisable that you enter 15 pips or more (especially for exotic currencies). If you enter any value in this field, you will not receive any Stop signals from the provider. Please note that any change made in this setting will be applied to future trades, not currently open ones.
By checking this option, your account will receive Limit signals and updates from the provider only if their value is lower than your own custom Limit. If you do not check it, your own custom setting will always take precedence over the Trader’s limit setting and actually overwrite it.
Example: If you have your own custom limit at 40 pips and you have checked Safe, if your provider sets a lower limit, e.g. 25 pips then you will receive it. If he sets a higher one, e.g. 50 pips then you will not. If you have not checked Safe, your custom limit or 40 pips will always prevail over any update sent by the provider.
By checking this option, your account will receive Stop signals and updates from the provider only if their value is lower than your own custom Stop. If you do not check it, your own custom setting will always take precedence over the Trader’s stop setting and actually overwrite it.
Example: If you have your own custom stop at 40 pips and you have checked Safe, if your provider sets a lower stop, e.g. 25 pips then you will receive it. If he sets a higher one, e.g. 50 pips then you will not. If you have not checked Safe, your custom stop or 40 pips will always prevail over any update sent by the provider.
By clicking at the Clock icon, you can set different weekly trading times for the specific Trader. Simply click on the relevant box to enable/disable the time interval and choose to accept/ignore open trade signals by the specific Trader.
If you configure the Time Filter for a Trader, the Clock icon will be highlighted so as to indicate that the trading time intervals vary for at least one time interval.
By clicking at the Pencil icon, you can set different advanced settings per currency pair for the specific Trader. If you Configure Currencies for a Trader, the pencil icon will be highlighted so as to indicate that the settings for each currency pair are not the same across this Trader but they actually vary for at least one currency pair.
Example: If you have added a provider that is generally good but not as good in a specific currency pair such as GBP/USD, you may set the Lots setting to 0 only for this currency. As a result, you will receive any trades he opens except for the GBP/USD, which will be blocked by your settings.
Margin Call-o-meter ™
Based on your custom settings, equity, leverage and the selected providers’ past performance, the ‘Margin Call-o-meter’ tool will calculate the risk of exposing your account and approaching a Margin Call. So the riskier your portfolio, the more Margin Call-o-Meter moves from green to red and displays relevant warning messages. The Margin Call-o-meter is simply a precautionary measure that we take to inform our clients about their exposure. As its calculations also consider the selected providers’ past performance, it calculates the most pessimistic scenario based on their worst results so far.
Generally the greater the percentage generated by the ‘Margin Call-o-meter’, the more exposed your account is – it is advised to adjust it according to how risky you wish your portfolio to be: e.g. less than 50% is classed as safe, up to 100% is acceptable risk and anything above 100% indicates a considerably high amount of risk with your selected portfolio.
In Custom Mode, you may configure your own settings and based on those the system will calculate your risk of receiving a Margin Call. In Auto Mode, you set the Risk Meter Bar and based on it the system will configure your settings.
The Margin Call-o-Meter in Custom Mode calculates risk based on the pessimistic scenario that your selected Traders may execute in the future the worst drawdown recorded per currency simultaneously, whereas the Risk Meter in Auto Mode is more optimistic and considers the overall annual account drawdown. As a result, the Margin Call-o-Meter may calculate higher risk value than the Risk Meter Bar for the same portfolio settings.
By pressing this you will be redirected to our Traders Page; here you will see our vast selection of Traders. You may select any provider at any time to auto trade your account; there is no limit set from our side to how many providers you will use - this depends entirely on the potential of your account. Please find the Trader(s) you wish to add to your portfolio and click on the icon of the Trader.
Once you select the Trader you wish to add to your portfolio, you will have to specify the number of lots per trade and the maximum number of trades you wish the particular Trader to open in your account. You can also opt to enable ZuluGuard for this Provider. You can of course change these settings anytime from your account.
You may also opt to include some or all trades the Trader has currently open at his account.
This button is used to save any changes you may make at your Trader Portfolio. Once you click on it, you should get a message to inform you that ‘Your signal provider settings have been saved successfully.’
Please make sure you click on this box after amending your Settings, as if you navigate outside the webpage before clicking on it, any changes you may have made will not be saved.
On the left of each Trader there is a bullet checkbox – if you wish to Enable/Disable a Trader from your portfolio you need to first click on the bullet checkbox to select the Trader and then click on the Enable/Disable button. If the provider was enabled, pressing the button will disable him; this will be indicated by highlighting the Trader in Red. Accordingly, if the provider was disabled, pressing the button will enable him, removing the Red highlight. You can re-enable a disabled Trader and vice-versa at any given time.
After a Trader has been disabled, he will not be able to open any new trades in your account. However, any remaining open trades or pending orders that the provider has placed in your account will remain there; you will still receive a Close Signal if the Trader broadcasts one for these already Open Trades/Orders, so as to safeguard and protect your trades from remaining exposed. You will not however receive any Stop/Limit update Signals for these Trades/Orders. You can of course close down open trades manually anytime you wish.
On the left of each Trader there is a bullet checkbox – if you wish to Remove a Trader from your portfolio you need to first click on the bullet checkbox to select the Trader and then click on the Remove Trader button. This will remove the Trader you have selected from your portfolio. Of course, you can add this Trader again to your portfolio at any given time.
After a Trader has been removed, he will not be able to open any new trades in your account. However, any remaining open trades or pending orders that the provider has placed in your account will remain there; you will still receive a Close Signal if the Trader broadcasts one for these already Open Trades/Orders, so as to safeguard and protect your trades from remaining exposed. You will not however receive any Stop/Limit update Signals for these Trades/Orders. You can of course close down open trades manually anytime you wish.
This button is to be used if you wish to undo the latest changes you made to your Trader Portfolio, and revert back to your last saved settings.
This powerful tool allows you to test your Traders’ performance against different settings in your account. It basically calculates the potential profit your account could have with trades of specific Traders, executed under different parameters.
First you need to select the parameters under which your account would be trading; starting balance, leverage and base currency. By default the system will provide your current account balance, leverage and base currency, but you may change them. You can also set the timeframe (3m, 6m, 1y, 2y) you would want the Simulate to generate results for. The system will provide your currently set value for the Max Open Lots setting, but you may also change it or set it to ‘No Limit’. After configuring all the parameters, you simply need to click on ‘Start Simulation’ and the system will generate the detailed results: Ending Balance, Number of Trade signals received, Number of Trades closed by Stop hit, Profit (ROI), Number of Trades opened/closed, Number of Trades closed by Limit, together with a graph. All results as well as the graph can be also seen individually per provider.
This tool also enables you to Simulate your current providers by configuring different settings per Trader, or choose specific providers from the ones you currently have at your account, or even Simulate different Providers apart from the ones you currently have at your portfolio. This will safely allow you to experiment with several different providers as well as settings until you find what’s right for your account and risk appetite, without risking any real funds.
Please note that any changes you make in your settings or any providers you may add for the Simulation will NOT affect your account Portfolio.
When your account is enabled and thus receiving trades, you will see the indication ‘Your account is enabled and receiving all signals’.
By clicking this button you can disable your ZuluTrade account, so that you will receive no more trades from any Trader. In this case you will see the indication ‘Your account is disabled and not receiving new or update signals; close signals will be received.’ You may re-enable it at any time by pressing the same button.
Please note that if you disable your account, any remaining open trades or pending orders will remain in your account; you will still receive a Close Signal if your Traders broadcast one for these Trades/Orders, so as to safeguard and protect your trades from remaining exposed. You will not however receive any Stop/Limit update Signals for these Trades/Orders. You can of course close down open trades manually anytime you wish.
This setting refers to the total number of lots that can be opened, including any pending positions at any one time in your account. This is a fill-in box and acceptable values rate from 1 to 99 for standard lot accounts (respectively for mini and micro lots).
Please note that this setting refers to the whole account and thus has priority over the number of ‘Max Open Lots’ for each Trader. If you wish to receive as many lots as dictated by your settings for each Trader, you may set Maximum Open Lots to ‘No Limit’.
Example: Let’s assume you have 2 Traders in your portfolio, Provider X and Provider Z, and you have set the Lots setting for each one to 1, the Max Open Trades to ‘No Limit’ and the Max Open Lots for each also to ‘No Limit’. In theory with these settings you should receive all trades your Traders will send you, and the size of each one will be 1 lot. However, let’s assume that you also have your Maximum Open Lots set to 5. Provider X has 2 trades open, and 1 pending order, thus totaling 3 lots. Provider Z has 2 trades open thus totaling 5 lots altogether for both Providers, equaling your Maximum Open Lots setting of 5. As a result, no more trades can be executed in your account or placed under your pending orders tab, so any trades/orders placed by either Trader will not be executed, until one of the already open trades or pending orders is closed. Similarly, you will not be able to open any manual trades either because your Maximum Open Lots does not allow you to. So if you notice under a Trader’s trade history at the Traders page that one of your selected Providers has opened a trade, but that trade never hit your account, this may be because it would have exceeded your Maximum Open Lots setting. In this case you will also get an error message like this in your Trade History Log (available at your History tab): Did not open 1.0 more std lot(s) for provider X, BUY EUR/USD. Max lots setting was 5.0, total open lots of trades & orders were 5.0
Here you can set how you prefer to view the lot size when logged in to your ZuluTrade account. So if you select Standard View, then a Standard Lot will be represented as 1, a Mini as 0.1 and a Micro as 0.01. If you select Mini View, then a Standard Lot will be represented as 10, a Mini as 1 and a Micro as 0.1. If you select Micro View, then a Standard Lot will be represented as 100, a Mini as 10 and a Micro as 1. In order to interpret this setting, it is important to have in mind the relation between the different sizes:
1 standard lot = 10 mini lots = 100 micro lots
0.01 standard lot = 0.1 mini lot = 1 micro lot
Please note that this only affects display – so if your account is setup by the Broker as a Mini account, switching the view to Micro View will not enable you to trade Micro – it simply means that if you wish to trade 1 Mini Lot, you will need to enter the value as 10 (Micro Lots). If you wish to actually amend the Lot size of your account, then you need to contact your Broker.
This feature offers an extra layer of defense to your account; it protects your equity by closing trades that were expected to close, but due to rejection or failure to deliver one or more trading signals to your broker, they remained unmodified at market. By checking this option, you authorize the ZuluTrade engine to close any traced trade at the minimum possible loss or at any profit in cases that this is within its potential.
A successful intervention in each and every case is not possible due to factors which are beyond ZuluTrade’s reach. However, in the spirit of constantly improving user experience and smoothing out trading performance, ZuluTrade has added the Monitor My Account feature.
You may view details about possible cases and examples here.
This setting appears in accounts where ticket-based trading is not supported by the Broker and it is the default and recommended setting for all such accounts. If you wish to enable hedging of trades in your account, please make sure you acknowledge all details associated with this option.
The Orders tab appears only when the ZuluTrade platform Mode is set to Advanced.
Under this tab you will find all pending orders placed by your Traders or yourself (manually). These are trades that have been assigned different market values of the current market value of the given pair, thus they will not open in your open positions tab until that value is reached. From here you can make the exact same changes that you can perform on your Positions Tab, with Stop and Limit updates, and cancelling the pending order before it becomes a live trade. You can also change the value of the ‘Entry’ price, which specifies at which rate each pending order will be executed. Once a pending order is executed, it will automatically move to your Positions Tab. Please remember to ‘Update Now’ in case you notice a delay in displaying your orders.
Here you will also find the same functions as in the Positions tab.
This tab appears once you have successfully invited a new account at ZuluTrade.
From here you will be managing the commissions earned from live accounts that registered in ZuluTrade from your invitation/affiliate link. Please read our Affiliates Program Guide for additional information.
