About the FX Blue Internet Trade Mirror

Overview

The FX Blue Internet Trade Mirror copies trades between different computers, over the internet. Senders can control which trades are broadcast. Receivers can control which trades are copied, and can change the lot sizing and risk settings.

Sending trades through the Trade Mirror
Sender EA user guide

To send trades to subscribers using the Trade Mirror:

  1. You need an account with FX Blue Live
  2. You need to send invitations to new users, or add existing FX Blue accounts to your list of subscribers
  3. You need to download and install the sender EA
  4. You need to enter your FX Blue username and password as parameters for the sender EA.

Once the sender EA is installed and configured, it will start to broadcast "heartbeat" messages to the subscribers, and to send signals whenever trades are opened or closed. For information about configuring which trades are broadcast, please see the user guide which is supplied with the sender EA.

You can add existing FX Blue accounts to your list of subscribers in the Trade Mirror, or you can send invitations to new users by email.

When someone receives an invitation from you, they click on a link in the email and create an account with FX Blue. Their account is then automatically added to your list of subscribers.

The Trade Mirror has a limit of 100 subscribers. For an increased limit, or for a version of the Mirror which runs from your own server and does not require registration with FX Blue, please contact us.

To receive trades from a sender through the Trade Mirror:

  1. You need an invitation from the sender or, if you already have an account with FX Blue, the sender needs to add that account to their list of subscribers
  2. You need to download and install the receiver EA
  3. You need to enter your FX Blue username and password as parameters for the receiver EA, and you also need to fill in the username of the sender (as the "Channel" parameter).

Once the receiver EA is installed and configured, it will start to receive "heartbeat" messages from the sender and to copy new trades. If you are subscribing to trades from more than one sender, you need to run a separate instance of the receiver EA for each sender (each on its own separate chart in MT4).

For information about configuring risk settings etc, please see the user guide which is supplied with the receiver EA.

For any further help, please contact the FX Blue user who is sending the signals.

More information about the Trade Mirror

The speed of trade copying depends almost entirely on the latency to FX Blue's servers and the latency to the broker. In other words, it depends on your geographical location and the speed of light.

By default, the lot sizing in receiver accounts is adjusted based on their equity relative to the sender's. For example, if the sender has a $4000 account and the receiver has a $2000 account, then the receiver will trade half the lot size of the sender. However, the receiver can alter the lot sizing to increase or decrease risk, and can also override the stop-loss on trades.

The Internet Trade Mirror automatically adjusts between 2DP/4DP and 3DP/5DP brokers, and between different symbol names such as EURUSD and EURUSDcx. The receiver can also control how much slippage is acceptable relative to the sender's entry price.

For more information about configuring the sender and receiver EAs, please see the online user guides, or the PDF documents which are supplied with the EAs.
