Simple principles of relations between traders and investors while working with PAMM accounts
PAMM (Percent Allocation Management Module) is a trading account consisting of one or several accounts, which is used by professional managing trader for forex or stock exchange trade, and to profit account of which any investor may add, enabling the managing trader to earn profit for himself and for investors.
Thus, if a managing trader
- earns profit, it is distributed among all investors of single PAMM account depending on their share in this account;
- trades at a loss, all investors of PAMM account lose money.
Managing trader gains his percent only from profit. Investor’s stop-loss limit (for example, 15%-25%) is set at the PAMM account of a broker company. If a managing trader experiences one loss after another, his trade will be stopped at the point of stop-loss or investor may withdraw his means much earlier.
Any investment is always accompanied by risk, explained in his interview to “Market Leader” Evgeny Olkhovski (Canada), well-known financial experts of Masterforex-V Academy. However, it is not a rare occurrence to see people that are to apt to risky transactions choose PAMM accounts and invest large sums in them, having believed in super profit and paying no attention to logics and common sense.
“However, one should remember,” continues Evgeny Olkhovski, “the higher is the promised profit from PAMM account, the higher is the risk of loss. Companies promising high profit with minimal risk are to be dealt with cautiously.
PAMM account is a highly risky investment. No loss can be guaranteed, as the account is managed by an ordinary trader, who is neither secured from losing operations. Therefore, nobody can guarantee high profit or secure from the loss of a part or even all invested means,” concluded the financial expert, “but there is a number of rules that are to be followed by any investor when investing into PAMM account.
The first rule concerns the choice of forex broker.”
