Trading terms for PAMM accounts

PAMM account (PAMM — Percentage Allocation Management Module) is a special trading account based on trust management. Managed account (PAMM) enables a professional trader to manage funds of many investors on one live account. 
PAMM account consists of unlimited Managed accounts, representing an independent and unified trading structure, which is controlled only by the Manager of the PAMM account.

PAMM service keeps each Investor’s account records individually and the gains and losses are automatically distributed by FXOpen between the Manager and the Investors on a percentage basis.
PAMM account is advantageous for Investors because they can receive potential profit and do not need to trade themselves, and for Managers it is advantageous as they receive remunerations for managing accounts of Investors. 

FXOpen supports 3 types of PAMM accounts: PAMM STPPAMM ECN, and PAMM Crypto. PAMM STP is developed on the basis of FXOpen STP, PAMM ECN — on FXOpen ECN, and PAMM Crypto — on FXOpen Crypto. FXOpen MT4 based accounts offer flexible and transparent trading environment for Money Managers, as well as attractive investment opportunities for Investors.
