Multi-Account Manager (MAM) Module & Percentage Allocation Management Module (PAMM) opens up additional revenue streams for Master Traders. MT4 MAM Software lets traders connect their MT4 accounts with a Master Trader and copy trades on their preference like Lot, Free Margin, Percentage, Balance or Equity.
Multi Account Manager (MAM) – much more advanced software designed by a third party company. MAM software provides more functions and allocation methods in comparison to multiple terminals and mostly used by professional money managers. MAM is used for allocation setups only and all trading is performed on the Master Account with combined Equity inside Meta Trader terminals. As a result, money managers can use all of the benefits of MT4 Platform like EAs, charts, indicators etc.
Through our PAMM solution, professional traders and asset managers can manage numerous accounts through one trading platform. Based on the deposit size of each sub account, master accounts can change the allocation method and distribution of trades dependant on trade results (trades, profit and loss) using a desired ratio.
In order to manage someone’s account, Money Managers must sign the Power of attorney (POA) form with the account owner. In the POA form the money manager and clients must agree with the fees and profit-sharing structure.
The MetaTrader 4 Multi-Terminal is designed for account managers and traders working with multiple accounts simultaneously.
Multi-Terminal provides all MT4 features (orders placing and modification, partial or complete closing positions, receiving broker emails, news updates) and has the familiar MT4 interface.
The difference between Multi-Terminal and MT4 is the ability to manage several accounts at the same time. Multi-Terminal gives you the opportunity to distribute order volume across accounts in order to place the necessary volume for every single order. Choose between equal distribution or let the program distribute funds automatically based on the funding ratio.
Applicant requirements: A minimum 10 client’s accounts with a total amount over USD $100,000 in trading capital. “Micro lots” client can’t log in together with “Standard lot” clients.
The Multi Account Manager (MAM) is designed for money managers who are looking for extensive flexibility when they are sub-allocating their trades on a single master account. With this tool, money managers are able to quickly execute block orders with just one click while being under one master account.
When comparing this to PAMM which allocates trades based on the percentage of total equity, MAM accounts simply give money managers more flexibility when they are sub-allocating trades. This flexibility is the one feature that has made MAM accounts so popular for money managers that want to trade on the forex market from one master account.
For example, the money manager can allocate trades on a fixed lot basis. This means he or she can set the number of lots to be traded, tweak the account size and manage the risk profile of their accounts. Fixed allocation can also be achieved with a Lot Allocation Management Module (LAMM) which allows portfolio managers to manually control the lot size within sub-accounts. This depends on their clients’ risk tolerance and whether they are willing to take the extra risk. Since MAM accounts are so flexible and easy to use, money managers generally prefer to use this type of account.
If a trader that manages multiple accounts, considering a MAM system is recommended. This is especially true if they are using EAs as they will need the flexibility to manage the various accounts. By using MAM, they are able to expand their functions of the MetaTrader 4 platform. As MAM is an add-on to the MT4 program which is completely integrated, traders do not need multiple instances of MT4 installed. This ease of functionality allows money managers to gain better control of their trades while working from one interface.
Every managed account can conduct trades from a single MetaTrader 4 client. With centralized processing and a server-based system, traders can have hundreds of different accounts which can all be trading with one click and there is no delay between each trade. This ensures that consistent speed is achieved between managed accounts.
It is important to note that as with any forex trading, investing in a MAM comes with a high level of risk which should be considered prior to participation.
A Percentage Allocation Module Management (PAMM) account is the solution for clients who are looking to have separate accounts traded under one money manager. To start things off, the manager contributes part of their investment as the manager’s capital.
The manager’s capital cannot be taken out and acts as insurance for potential investors. The manager then needs to advertise based on the performance of the account so that other investors will want to have their trading conducted by the manager. There will also be a set of conditions for these investors, detailing how much profit they will keep and how much the manager will make as well. Typically, this is done through an intermediary forex broker who ensures the security of the PAMM but is not responsible for any losses.
Once the manager acquires interested investors they can begin investing in the market. For example, when using a PAMM account, the manager could open a 100 lot long position. The position is broken up between each sub-account based on the percentage equity of each account. This ensures that each account is contributing its share to the trade.
Managers benefit from PAMM accounts simply by being able to make money not just from their own investment, but from trading other investor’s accounts. Since there is a set of conditions that the investors must agree upon, there is a degree of structure and control for both the manager and investors.
Investors benefit from PAMM accounts that are operated by experienced traders. If an investor puts their money with someone that has a provable winning track record they may have a better chance of a profitable opportunity. Furthermore, investors can also diversify their funds with multiple PAMMs which can reduce risk.
It is important to note that as with any forex trading, investing in a PAMM comes with a high level of risk which should be considered prior to participation.
