Exchange restrictions for Lead Trader accounts
Updated over a week ago

Recently, more and more users turn to our CX support with issue that arise in their trades. Investigating these issues, our team discovered that many of these requests have something in common and it is related to the fact that the exchange has certain restrictions on special accounts created on the exchange, which are marked as Lead or Copy Trader account.

Difference between leading and copy-trader accounts:

A Lead Trader is an account of an experienced trader who generates trades.

A Copy trader is an account of an investor who wishes to repeat the trades of the lead trader.

In this document, we tried to consider various types of restrictions from the exchange for such accounts and draw your attention to them and help you solve these issues.

If you are a lead trader on this exchange, please pay attention to special restrictions set by the exchange for such accounts.

Please familiarize yourself with them and adhere to these restrictions to avoid possible errors in trades.
