It is important that your broker allows trading of micro lots like 0.05 and 0.01.

What is the ideal trade copier lotmultiplier?
The master capital3x account started off with a equity of USD 10,000. It is now well over that amount. Even with the equity curve of the portfolio, Capital3x does not increase the risk on the account and trades as if the equity is still USD 10000.

The thumbrule for trade copier setting:
– If your trading captial is USD 10,000 implies LOTMULTIPLIER =1.
– If your trading captial is USD 20,000 implies LOTMULTIPLIER =2.
– If your trading captial is USD 5,000 implies LOTMULTIPLIER =0.5
– If your trading captial is USD 100,000 implies LOTMULTIPLIER =10

My trading capital is over USD 100K. Can I be part of the Capital3x?
Yes but there are different registration for subscribers with capital more than 100k. Please email support@capital3x.com for guidance.

What is the live trade room?
Live trade room is where you can be discussing the trades with the traders who are taking them. Almost all trades and positions are discussed at length.

What is the trading system followed? Is it a black box?
No it is not a black box. On the contrary we make every effort to communicate all the analysis and charts behind the trades. The aim of Capital3x has always been to make better traders of subs who may ultimately be independent. This is only possible via education and live analysis.

Will Capital3x carry a loss making position?
Yes it will. But the drawdown will be carefully monitored and positions will be averaged over prices even when pairs can go against the price. We turn loss making trades into profitable ones by averaging them. Always remember: ALL FOREX PAIRS RETRACE. SOME RETRACES ARE 30-40% AND SOME ARE 100%. BUT THEY ALL DO. FOREX TRADING IS NEVER A STRAIGHT LINE MOVE.

What is the ideal leverage?
This is a highly subjective question and one that depends on personal preference. The Capital3x master trades on a leverage of 50 cents to 1 pip. We recommend that you leverage of your account under permissible limits.

What is the type of Captial3x forex trading?
Capital3x trading involves a combination of scalp trades (50-100 pips) and positional trades (>+100 pips trades). In a positional strategy forex pairs are accumulated over time and over prices. For example AUDUSD was collected over different price points between 8900 to 9100 for a long move to 9220. The move took many days but ulimately netted over +500 pips across all positions.

Similarly USDCAD was collected in the month of April between prices of 1.0250 and 1.003 for a move to 1.04 which happened in May. The entire position netted +3000 pips which is why the May returns stood at 16%.

What happens when positional trend trading is not available or if pairs are not trending?
Capital3x will be scalping trades with tight stops and targets at 100 pips.

Capital3x forex trades have done well making over 50% in 2013? Will the good run continue?
This is a tough question to answer but what we can anwser is that the drawdown on your capital will always be under 20% at all times. The Capital3x portfolio is hedged so it is unlikely to see a drawdown exceeding 10% in a month.
