Dowload Differences of PAMM

Main Features

Allocation of positions in PAMM Accounts

01
Master account (PAMM account) consists of investment accounts (Equity of PAMM account = sum of equities of investment accounts).
02
Only Money manager can trade on master account.
03
When money manager makes trades they doesn't appear on investment account.
04
When money manager closes positions investors get balance operations with their share of PnL for that position.

Formula for calculation of PnL for
investment account:

PnL of investor = Closed PnL for master position x (Investor's Equity / Master’s Equity)

Step's we follow

01

Master opens BUY 1 lot EURUSD @1.2110. Nothing is opened on investment accounts.

02

Master opens BUY 1 lot EURUSD @1.2110. Nothing is opened on investment accounts.

03

03 Investor #1 gets balance operation with 10USD. Investor #2 gets balance operation with 20 USD profit. Investor #3 gets balance operation with 70USD profit.

Behavior of PAMM accounts during
Deposits / Withdrawals

When somebody makes Deposit/Withdrawal (DW) shares of investment accounts are recalculated accordingly to new shares of investment after DW. After DW lblin label creates for all opened positions on master account and all floating PnL for all master positions is redistributed by balance operations to investment accounts.

Example : Initial state: Master account = 1000USD. it has only 1 investor with 1000 USD.

Step's we follow

Additional options of
Execution

01
Autocorrection of master positions
on Withdrawals
02
Deposits without rebalancing of
positions

How autocorrection
works :

Autocorrection helps money manager to automatically save same leverage (or margin level) on his account as before withdrawal by partial close of opened positions.

For example

we have PAMM account (4000USD) with 2 investors: 1000USD (25%) and 3000USD (75%). He has 1 lot EURUSD opened position.

Then investor #2
withdraws 2000USD.

Before withdrawal investor #1 had virtual position: 0.25 lot EURUSD and investor #2 0.75 lots respectively.

With Autocorrection

01
Master position will be partially closed by autocorrection proportionally to withdrawal amount >>> 2000USD/4000USD x 1 lot >>> 0.5 lots will be closed.
02
So after withdrawal investor #1 will get same size of virtual position: 0.25 lot same as investor #2 (they have same equity).

Without Autocorrection

01
positions of money manager will not be affected but investors will get new shares in PAMM after withdrawal: investor #1: 50% and investor #2: 50%.
02
So both investor #1 and investor #2 will get 0.5 lots of EURUSD after withdrawal.
That means that leverage for investor #1 increased by 2 because of actions of investor #2.

We implemented rollovers to eliminate such surprises because of withdrawals or deposits even on model without autocorrection.

Money manager can set a schedule for deposits and withdrawals, so he knows when exactly will be executed DW requests and how much money investors plan to deposit and withdraw.

He can make set a schedule for rollovers in settings of master account in his account settings in Web UI.

Deposits without
Re-Allocation of positions

For example : we have PAMM account (4000USD) with 2 investors: 1000USD (25%) and 3000USD (75%). He has 1 lot EURUSD opened position.

then investor #2 deposits 4000USD.

Before deposit investor #1 had virtual position: 0.25 lot EURUSD and investor #2 0.75 lots respectively.

After a new deposit of investor #2 their virtual positions will not be changed. Investor #1 will have same 0.25 lots and Investor #2 will have 0.75.

It is highly recommended not to use that
feature because of 2 side effects

01

Performance of master account will be different from performance of investment accounts (as positions were not rebalanced)

02

Master account will have bigger margin level then investor #1, so investor #1 can hit stop-out earlier than master.
