The Significance of PAMM or ForexCopy Accounts in forex trading

PAMM or Percentage Allocation Management Module is a software application used by the forex brokers to enable the forex investors to direct their assets/money to a specific trader capable of managing one or more accounts. In other words, a PAMM account allows the fund/account managers to manage multiple accounts by collating all into a single account.
By opening a PAMM account the forex investor can actually increase the potential profitability ratio. Here, the skilled PAMM fund manager also shares the investor’s PAMM account and is responsible for the efficient trading on the PAMM account. A PAMM account offers a platform where both the profits and losses can be shared in proportion.
With the use PAMM account, the account manager can also manage his personal forex account (which is known as Managed Account) and connect it to the investor’s account. And hence the profits and losses on both the accounts are distributed proportionally.
