First steps to get Zignaly up and running by using Copy Trading

3 steps to activate your Zignaly account and start operating 🚀

  1. Connect your Exchange (or connect your existing one)

  2. Select a trader to copy

  3. Allocate your investment

Alternatively, you can use Zignaly to operate through Signals or manually through our Trading Terminal.

1) How to connect the Exchange

The fastest and easiest way is to create an account on the Zignaly Exchange, that you'll be able to manage from your Zignaly account, and you'll not need to connect using API keys, etc. Just a few clicks and your account will be created and connected.

Go to Settings view and set the options as shown on the next image and click on "Add new exchange".

Once done you'll need send some funds to your recently created exchange account. For this you need to go to the Balance view and click on the Deposit tab, as it shows the next image.

You can send now your funds from your current exchange to the generated address. If you don't cryptocurrency on any exchange, you can buy with Credit Card using Changelly.

Alternatively, if you already have a Binance or KuCoin account, you can connect it using their API keys (A little more complicated)

2) How to choose a copy trader

Ok, the next step is to choose a Copy Trader from our list. It's up to you which trader to copy, but let's share some info to take in consideration to choose one If you don't know how to decide and just want to test our platform.

Which quote: Our recommendation is to copy at least 2 traders that are having good results, and if possible combinate different coins, like Bitcoin and USDT (crypto version of US Dollar). But a way to choose the quote think in that way, what is the coin you prefer to accumulate? If it's Bitcoin, check traders who trade with Bitcoin. You can put this quote on the selector of the copy traders view to filter.

Which exchange: Binance is a reputable Exchange with lots of traders to copy in our platform, so if you go with them you can't be wrong. If you created an account with Zignaly Exchange "Powered by Binance", or connected your own Binance account, then filter to show only Binance traders. (Binance traders are 100% compatible with Zignaly Exchange).

Who is the best one?: Once you set your desired filters like Quote and Exchange, you'll see the entire list of traders for this combination, and we encourage you to set the timeframe with at least 90 days. It's always a good idea to have in consideration who have good results in the long-term. Who is able to get good results even with strong market movements? The answer is simple, the one with better results in the long-term.

3) Allocate your investment

Once you decided who to copy, just open his profile "View Details" and check the "Max Allocated Balance". What that this means? Basically this is the max balance the trader will use from your funds. He can use this amount as max, but not always will be used. If the trader uses 10% of his funds, we'll replicate on your account using 10% of your funds to, proportionally.

Take in consideration that all the traders have a minimum amount to be copied, this is related to his strategy, and it's not possible to invest less than the shown amount.

That's it! Just wait the next operation, it will be replicated on your account automatically 😉
