Company Information

ZuluTrade is a popular social trading platform that connects traders and investors from all over the world. ZuluTrade was founded in 2007 with head office in Greece. The founders aimed to build software that allowed them to copy the trades of the best traders. By 2009, the company has gained over 4,500 expert traders or signal providers. In other words, it was their portfolios that users could copy to make money. It is fully regulated in Europe, while its US website is compliant with US regulations.

Markets

ZuluTrade suggests its customers over 300 different instruments to trade. It offers Forex, CFD and Cryptocurrency trading services.

● Cryptocurrencies
● Forex
● CFDs

Trading accounts

When choosing to open a live account, you will have to decide between two straightforward options. It is possible to link an external live or demo MetaTrader 4 (MT4) platform to a trader account. There is also a possibility to open a demo account with ZuluTrade. The broker provides its clients with the following types of account:

  • Classic
  • suits more for advanced users. You will benefit from manual or fully customized copy-trading, plus standard volume-based commissions. However, make sure you are sufficiently experienced before opening a signal provider account.

  • Profit sharing
  • suits more for beginners as you get to learn by copying others. Traders will be compensated when you profit and penalized when they lose. You also benefit from reduced commissions.

Open an account

You can create an account both as a provider and an investor. Registration is fast. Fill in the name, surname, mail, and phone number. Next, confirm the email address and select the type of account: Classic (fixed commission) or Profit sharing (give part of the profit). The next step is to choose a broker for trading and connect the trading account to your ZuluTrade account.

Minimum deposit

The minimum deposit depends on the chosen broker. The service is supported by about 50 brokers. In addition to the regular spread, brokers charge 0 to 3 pips commissions for linking your account to ZuluTrade. Generally, it kicks off from $300.

Trading Platforms

Trading is carried out in the MT4 terminal or through the ZuluTrade web platform. You can read more about the very popular MetaTrader 4 platform by clicking here.

There is also a functional mobile phone app at your service. A very useful feature is “social charts”. Here users can mark their trades on the chart, share their comments, and exchange opinions. The ZuluTrade platform has a good set of indicators and offers the ability to create trading robots by running your own ZuluScripts.

Our verdict

The main advantage of ZuluTrade is its social component, which allows traders and investors to communicate with each other. The fact that the platform remains open gives the opportunity to anyone wishing to become a provider and making a profit from their strategy. The very fact attracts many users from all around the world. However, here comes a problem – finding really experienced and reliable signal providers. Therefore, investors will be required at least a basic knowledge of capital management. It also offers a good mobile app for its users. We recommend that you carefully study the statistics of providers and diversify the risks to prepare yourself for the conditions.

I had an “off quotes” error preventing order placement due to technical problems (according to customer support). It was solved after a few days

I used ZuluTrade last year to manage accounts.

I moved to Abu Dhabi that’s why i have to withdraw my account.

When i withdrew my money, there was a huge discrepancy in the amount i received compared to what i was supposed to get. I lost almost 30% of what i have invested.

When i asked their customer service, they just said that intermediary banks might charge us fees. I doubt if they will charge that high fees.

Please help me resolve this.

They open the spreads, and is imposible to claim anything. At least they pay when you withdrawal.
