This concludes the setup of your account and the trade copying setup process.
Enjoy watching your account grow, but be aware that this system is very high risk. When good profits have been made, be sure to withdraw some of your earnings, locking in profit as your account grows.
Be also aware what it might take two or three times of depositing 100 euro before your account starts to grow. On rare occasions it does happen that a new account gets into drawdown (loss) immediately, and the account has not yet grown enough to cope with the losses, which will result in your account being "blown". This means that you broker will have terminated your open positions automatically when your account balance is no longer sufficient to cope with the losses. This will result in having lost your entire account (100 euro).
If this happens, we advise to wait one week and refund your account with 100 euro once more, after which the system will detect funds have been added and the account is automatically traded again.
