Social Trading Promotions and Offers
Below are the latest offers, rewards, bonuses and promotions from the social trading networks and brokers. Most of the promotions involve a bonus which you receive when you make your first deposit, and sometimes when you top-up your account. These can be very useful and up to 50% free cash. However please note that before you can withdraw your bonus money a minimum amount of trades will need to be executed in your account (check the relevant terms and conditions).
You’ll notice that the offers are normally with brokers who offer their own social or copy trading platform and service. With independent networks which do not have their own brokerage, the “partner” brokers already pay commissions to the network and hence cannot offer bonuses to new clients who will use the social trading platform.

AvaTrade – ZuluTrade New Client Bonus
It’s extremely rare that you find any broker offering a deposit bonus when you register with them to use ZuluTrade (mainly because the brokers already have to pay commissions to ZuluTrade and hence cannot offer the same incentives as they do to their normal clients). The new client bonus currently offered by AvaTrade is therefore very interesting since it works with ZuluTrade accounts as well (and “new client” only refers to new AvaTrade client, so if you already have a ZuluTrade account, but with a different broker, you can still benefit from this). The deposit and bonus levels are as follows:
|up to €/$300 deposits||100% bonus|
|up to €/$1,000 deposits||30% bonus|
|up to €/$50,000 deposits||20% bonus|
Full T&Cs are found on their website. Please note that you have to follow the link below and “Sign up for a ZuluTrade account” from that page on the AvaTrade website. I.e. the offer is not available if you register direct on the ZuluTrade website and select AvaTrade from there as your broker! This promotion is valid until January 31st 2017.
We will aim to keep this page up to date with any new offers and promotions when we see them. Please note that many of the first deposit offers you may see on some broker websites do not apply when you open an account with them to use on a social trading network or trade copying platform. This is because the brokers already have to pay the networks and platforms commissions to use the service.
