Among the variety of its trading tools, BigOption has introduced its unique ProFollow tool. ProFollow is a way of boosting the profits on binary options through social trading. The ProFollow feature is very straightforward and is available on the trading platform itself. Traders select as many leaders as they wish and copy their transactions. It is very easy to initiate and traders can drop a leader at any time. They also have the ability to choose top traders according to the assets categorized on the platform. Traders can often be identified according to their initials and their country flag which appears next to their name.

The ProFollow has several advantages especially for beginners’ who do not have any knowledge about binary options trading. By locating the best spot between manual trading and hands-free trading, traders can choose the amount of time they wish to follow the expert trader as well as the total investment per trade. ProFollow gives the trader the responsibility of making his own decisions as to a timeframe which can be as short as one day and can be weeks, months and even up to one year.

Moreover, there’s limited risk in over-spending. And since the investment puts a limit on the amount of each trade there is limited risk of over spending.
