How To Use Bitget Copy Trading: Followers’ Guide

There are three main steps to use Bitget Copy Trade as a follower: Create a new Bitget account (if you don't have one yet) - choose the trader to follow - click on ‘Copy’ and confirm it.
Please note that the process remains the same for spot and futures copy trade. However, we want to give you some useful tips that could help make the process even easier for beginners. Let's get right into them.

Selecting the best trader(s)

If you already make a list of good traders and want to select the best out of them, we have the right tool for you here: Elite traders comparison. This feature allows for a general comparison of several traders at the same time based on their basic information, trading data and insights activities.
However, you can also find your best match by filtering through the overall ranking, ROI, AUM, etc. on the homepage for both Bitget Futures and Spot Copy Trading.
When you see one fitting trader, click on their profile to further review their success metrics like this:

Performance includes all the numbers you've seen on the homepage (ROI, Maximum drawdown, Total copy traders, Total profit, Win rate, AUM), whereas Copy trade order shows all the futures contracts enabled for copy trading by this trader.
Under the Orders tab, you can find the list of one trader's historical trades and copy trades, and details of their followers are provided in the Followers tab.
Now moving on to the Analysis. Key metrics are visualized to provide a digestible summary of a trader's activities in 24 hours, 7 days, 3 weeks, one month, or six months. If the Performance is more of a general overview, Analysis illustrates changes over time and gives insights into the trader's strategy.

Setting your preferences

When you click on the Copy button next to a trader's profile, it'll show a message box as below:

(1) Profit share ratio: This shows how much of your profits the trader shares.
(2) Futures: By default, a follower is exposed to all the futures contract (in case of Futures Copy Trading) or all the trading pairs (in case of Spot Copy Trading) the trader has enabled. If you wish to trade a set of preferred contracts only, click on Edit and unselect those that don't fit.
(3) Copy mode: Click on the dropdown menu and choose the most suitable copy mode.

With Fixed amount, you allocate a pre-set amount of equity, for example 500 USDT for each trade undependable of the trader's position value. In many cases, it's better to choose Multiplier because it creates a synchronisation between a trader and the follower(s), which helps avoid any mismatch during the implementation of the trader's strategy and unwanted risks.
Let's take an example: Assume the trader has 3,000 USDT in equity and they decide to split it equally into 10 trades, meaning each trade has 300 USDT as initial margin. A follower of them has 2,000 USDT in their Futures account, selects the Fixed amount mode and allocates 500 USDT for every trade. If the trader uses Cross Margin for all of their trades, a losing one can be covered by the remaining equity which makes up to 2,700 USDT. Meanwhile, the follower has only 1,500 USDT ready to compensate for the same position and takes a higher risk of liquidation.
Should this follower select the Multiplier mode to allocate an amount of equity proportionally to their trader, they need to enter 0.67 (2,000 / 3,000 = 0.67) as the ratio between their equity and that of the trader. Then the same position would require an initial margin of only 200 USDT, so there's 1,800 USDT available for compensation. If they have 6,000 USDT in their Futures account, the recommended multiplier is 6,000 / 3,000 = 2.
Our advice: It's best to take advantage of the data and charts available in each trader's profile to understand their trading strategy before filling in your follower's settings.

Managing your trades

On the homepage ( here for Futures Copy Trading and here for Spot Copy Trading), click on the [Arrow] symbol to review all your trades and positions.

• You are not following any trader at the time of application;
• You can only register one account as a trader for Bitget Copy Trade.

• For futures traders:
Total equity in futures account (USDT, rounded down)
Maximum number of followers
0 - 499
500 - 999
1,000 - 4,999
