There are several ways to copy trading items (watchlists, screens, trading systems, composites, scripts, prediction items, optimize items, saved charts...)

Some plug-ins, such as the simulator or optimizer, offer a "Save As" button that allows you to create a copy of an existing trading items.

A solution that works for all trading items:

- Click on the "Manage" button of a trading item type

For instance, in the simulator, you can find the "Manage" button here:

- Rename the trading item you want to copy (click on it then type a new name)
- Click on "Tools" menu then select "Import Items from another Account"
- Select the current account then click on "Next"
- Check the trading item you want to copy then click on "Finish"
- When QuantShare asks you if you want to replace the current item, select "Yes"
- You just copied one trading item

Another solution would be to download the item again from the sharing server. This of course only applies if the item you want to copy was downloaded from the sharing server.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
