These payments are in addition to any profits made from your own trading and are paid monthly to your account as real, immediately withdrawable funds.

It’s a great opportunity to be a Popular Investor, but at the same time, it also means a lot of responsibility. Knowing that people are following my actions and putting their trust in me, inspires me to get better and better, and is a great recognition of my hard work.
