BlackStone Futures is an FSCA Regulated Broker
They're one of the best brokers in South Africa, in my opinion, and they have an interesting and unique copy trading service in addition to the excellent service, cost effective spreads and dedication to trader information and support.
I'm involved with three of their copy trading accounts at time of writing. They are listed below.
- Iremia - Is the nominee account where I gift R250 free copy trading accounts to try out this innovative new system.
- MS E Alfa - Traded by my mentor Morgan Sampson of the MS Equities Trading Academy, this is his public portfolio that the public can follow. It aims to return 20% a year, but there are no guarantees.
- WolfCap - This is the first algorithmic trading robot that I've been lucky enough to come across. This one returns 2-2.5% per month, and I hope will be a source of regular withdrawable income for myself really soon.
