Copy investing, or mirror trading became very popular with investors worldwide, mainly because many early adopters have had enormous success and were able to boost their trading skills and profitability with zero effort. Copy trading enables novice investors to do just that. They do not need to know how to analyze the markets or how to interpret forex signals or indicators.

Novices employ other investors’ abilities and thus increase their own success rates. Also, copy trading can be used by experienced traders, too, as a way of learning new trading strategies from others, and by that, increasing their success in the online trading market.
