1. Introduction to "Copy by Position Ratio" Mode
BingX Perpetual Futures Copy Trading and Binance Futures Copy Trading both allow users to copy traders by position ratio. "Copy by position ratio" means that whenever a copier copies a trader, the ratio of the order margin to the copier's copy trading funds is the same as the position ratio of the trader. The margin for each copied order is calculated based on the ratio of the trader's margin to net account assets (of USDT Account). Not only does this copy trading mode allows copiers to copy trading signals, but also the trader's real position ratio. Copiers can achieve an ROI approximate to that of the trader's account.
Advantage: The position ratio of copiers and the trader is consistent, i.e. the risk of their positions is closely aligned. This mechanism keeps the risks of positions under "copy by position ratio" mode at a relatively lower level. In the long run, traders can better help copiers in risk control and profit management.
E.g., if the trader's Copy Trading account has net assets of 1,000 USDT and uses 30% of the fund, i.e., 300 USDT, with leverage of 5X to open long BTC/USDT, the copiers will also use 30% of their fund (suppose 100 USDT), that is, 30 USDT 5X to buy long BTC/USDT.

Copy trader's positions immediately
If this is turned on and if the trader holds any open position, you will copy the trader's position in proportion immediately regardless of the trader's open price. If this is turned off, you will only start to copy when the trader opens a new position for futures trading.
Copiers can view the trader's homepage or go to the trader's Feed and leave comments to consult the trader on whether they should turn on the "Copy trader's positions immediately" feature.
Copiers can set the TP/SL for the copy relationship. Your copying of the trader will stop automatically once the TP/SL setting is triggered, and the copy trading funds will be returned to your Fund Account.

6. General FAQs
Why is the Margin Used for a Copy Order So Small?
The "copy by position ratio" mode (Binance Futures Copy Trading and Perpetual Futures Copy Trading) is essentially to copy traders' position ratio. If the trader that you copy holds a large amount of assets in his/her copy trading account and invests a small margin in a trade, the position ratio (margin-to-net assets ratio) is low and your margin used for the corresponding copy order will also be small.
E.g., if the trader holds 10,000 USDT in his/her copy trading account and only invests 100 USDT in a trade, his position ratio will be 1%. In this case, if your Copy Trading Funds is 100 USDT, the copied order will be opened with a margin of 1 USDT.
How to Withdraw Profits from Copy Trading?
Profits generated from copied trades (Perpetual Futures & Binance Futures) will be used as copy trading funds to continue to copy the trader and can be withdrawn after you stop copying the trader.
Why is My PnL Different From the Trader?
Differences in trading time or delays in third-party platform services can result in price discrepancies between you and your trader, leading to variations in your respective PnL.
Why Do Copiers Incur Losses While the Trader Makes Profits?
If the trader invests a high proportion of his funds with high leverage in less popular cryptocurrencies, it is possible that the trader makes profits while copiers incur losses.
Reason: The opening price, closing price and PnL ratio of copiers may differ from the trader as a result of objective factors such as market fluctuations and market depth. In extreme market conditions, these differences can widen and lead to profitable trades for you but losses for your copiers.
If a trader employs strategies such as hedging, grid trading, Martingale strategy, or high-frequency trading, it is possible for the trader to make profits while copiers incur losses.
Reason: The above types of strategies require traders' and copiers' positions to be strictly aligned. Due to objective factors such as market fluctuations and depth, the positions may be misaligned, resulting in losses for copiers.
Why Was My Copied Order Closed While the Trader Didn't Close the Order?
If a trader makes a large deposit while holding open positions, it can result in reduced or even closed positions for the copiers.
Reason: In "copy by position ratio" mode, the position ratio of traders and copiers is aligned. When a trader makes a substantial deposit while holding positions, it lowers the trader's position ratio. The copiers' position will then be automatically aligned with the trader, resulting in a reduction or even closing of the copiers' position.
