U.S. Forex Trading Guide

What is different in ZuluTrade U.S.?

ZuluTrade for U.S. residents is designed in accordance to US legislation, aiming to increase investor protection and reduce systemic risk complying with NFA regulation.

Certain aspects of ZuluTrade services are different for clients trading in accordance to U.S. legislation (U.S. residents or holders of Broker accounts collaborating with ZuluTrade U.S.). Please see below for details.

Opening a Real Account

During the registration of your Investor account, you will need to specify the type of trading you wish to perform. Advanced users may select manual and copy-trading, while beginners are strongly recommended to select copy-trading only.

Setting Up Your Account

  • FIFO and non-Hedging Trading

    FIFO and non-Hedging is mandatory for US Investors and Traders.

  • Maximum Number of Traders you may copy

    The maximum number of Traders you may add to your portfolio is 3. To follow more Traders, you will need to open a new Investor account.

  • Follow Traders trading the same currency pairs

    You cannot follow Traders who trade with the same currency pairs as this may cause conflict with the FIFO policy. In case you choose to follow Traders who have selected at least 1 identical currency pair for their strategy, you will be notified online.

  • ZuluGuard Capital Protection

    Each Trader at your portfolio needs to be protected by ZuluGuard™ Capital Protection. Once your allowance is reached, ZuluGuard™ will take action, it will Close all Trader's open positions and Disable the Trader from your portfolio.

Copy-Trading Subscription Package

Copy-Trading is a paid service. For every Trader you add to your portfolio, you purchase a $30 recurring monthly subscription package.

Once you add a Trader to your portfolio, your account is charged automatically with the subscription fee at the end of the calendar month. The subscription amount will be charged up-front for every consequent month the Trader remains enabled in your account. If you have disabled or removed a Trader, the subscription will not be renewed and you will need to purchase a new subscription to enable the Trader again.

Note that the monthly fee is calculated on a pro-rata mode based on the subscription date. For example, if you add a Trader in the middle of the month, the fee will be $15 instead of $30, which is the flat monthly fee based on our subscription package.

Performance Page

Performance Page is different for ZuluTrade US, as not all ZuluTrade Traders are available. In more detail:

Only Traders who adhere to the FIFO and Non-Hedging policy and trade in compliance with the NFA Regulation will be displayed. Any Traders currently added to your Portfolio that are non-compliant with the criteria mentioned above will automatically be disabled in your Portfolio.

Note also that you will still receive update and closing signals for any currently open trades, but no new trades will open from such Traders.
