Ready to make even better use of your trading skills and earn additional income?

As a signal provider, you are letting other traders gain access to your trades and follow along with your success or your failures. Traders that do agree to follow you have the ability to change their position size but if you are long on BTCUSD then they are long on it with you as well.

Copy trading is a new technology for both new and experienced traders to utilise but there must first be trades to copy supplied by the signal providers on the app.

In this article, we will explain the process of becoming a signal provider and show you the many benefits of being a signal provider.

What does a signal provider do?

A signal provider is a person who allows other traders to copy their trades on the Axi Copy Trading app. The provider may earn income from charging subscribers a subscription or performance fee, but this is optional and completely up to the provider.

What is the Axi Copy Trading app?

The Axi Copy Trading app is an app that allows clients to link their MT4 trading account and copy the trades of other traders featured on the app. It is a simple way to copy top traders around the world, whether you are a beginner who lacks the time to focus on becoming a trader or an experienced trader who wants to diversify their overall strategy. At the same time, it is a platform for successful traders who would like to earn additional income by allowing others to copy their trades.
