Frequently asked questions

What are the rules for the assessment account?

It's crucial to understand the distinction between "Hard Breaches" and "Soft Breaches".

Hard Breach refers to a strict rule that, if violated, will result in immediate account termination.

Soft Breach refers to a guideline that, if violated, will result in an immediate close of an incorrectly placed trade and a warning email.


1. Achieve a profit target of 10% to qualify for funding.

2. Do NOT lose more than 5% in any single day (24-hour period).

3. Do NOT lose more than 6% of your account based on your high water mark which starts at your initial balance.

4. Inactivity within a 30-Day period will result in hard breach of the account. At least one trade must be executed per 30-day period.

5. All positions MUST be closed by 3:50pm EST on the day of an Earnings Release OR the previous day.


1. All trades MUST have a stop loss. Trades placed without a stop loss will result in an immediate close of the position.

2. All trades MUST be closed by 3:45pm EST on Friday, unless "Trade Over Weekend" option has been selected at time of purchase.

3. There is a Max Lot Size allowed for each trade. Failure to follow this will result in the closure or non-execution of your trade.

What are the rules for the Live Account?

The rules for the Live Account are exactly the same as your Assessment account. However, with a Live Account, there is no account growth target.

How do I withdraw the gains in my Live Account?

1. In order to withdraw funds, you MUST have passed the Audition Phase and be trading in a live FUNDED account.

2. Your INITIAL withdrawal can be requested at any time.

3. Additional withdrawal requests can be made ONCE EVERY 30 DAYS.

4. Withdrawal requests are made by logging into your dashboard and submitting a request to withdraw funds through the Profit Share tab along the left toolbar.


What happens if I BREACH an account?

If it's a HARD BREACH the account will no longer function. You will be required to purchase another one-time audition and start the process again. If it's a SOFT BREACH, you'll receive an email notifying you of the breach, most likely any position opened resulting in the soft breach will be closed immediately.

What times can I trade in the Funded Account?

There are various assets that have different trading times. Most assets are open for trading from 9:31am EST to 3:55pm EST Monday to Thursday, and 9:31am EST to 3:45pm EST on Friday.

Crypto is open for trading 24-hours per day.

Forex & Futures are open for trading from Sunday 6pm EST to Friday 3:45pm EST.

To hold trades over the weekend OR to trade Crypto on the weekend, "Trade Over Weekend" option must be added to your account at the time of purchase.

How do you calculate the 5% Daily Loss Limit?

The Daily Loss Limit is the maximum your account can lose in any given day. Daily Loss Limit is calculated using the previous day balance which resets at 5 PM EST. Unlike other firms, we do NOT base our calculations on previous day equity since the balance only model allows you to scale your gains without fear of losing your account. The Daily Stop compounds with the increase in your account. Example: if your prior day's end of day balance (5pm EST) was $100,000, your account would violate the daily stop loss limit if your equity reached $95,000 during the day. If your floating equity is +$5,000 on a $100,000 account, your new- day (5pm EST) max loss is based on your balance from the previous day ($100,000). So, your daily loss limit would still be $95,000.

What instruments can be traded?

The funded accounts trades CFD's (Contract for Difference). These are derivative products that track an underlying asset (Stocks, Forex, Futures, & Crypto). There are currently 1177 different CFD's available to trade spread across all the underlying assets.

How do you calculate the 6% Maximum Trailing Drawdown?

The Maximum Trailing Drawdown is initially set at 6% and trails (using CLOSED BALANCE - NOT equity) your account until you have achieved a 6% return in your account. Once you have achieved a 6% return the Maximum Trailing Drawdown no longer trails and is permanently locked in at your starting balance. This allows for more trading flexibility. Example: If your starting balance is $100,000, you can drawdown to $94,000 before you would violate the Maximum Trailing Drawdown rule. Then for example let's say you take your account to $102,000 in CLOSED BALANCE. This is your new high-water mark, which would mean your new Maximum Trailing Drawdown would be $96,000. Next, let's say you take your account to $106,000 in CLOSED BALANCE, which would be your new high-water mark. At this point your Maximum Trailing Drawdown would be locked in at your starting balance of $100,000. So, regardless of how high your account goes, you would only breach this rule if your account drew back down to $100,000 (note, you can still violate the daily drawdown). For example, if you take your account to $170,000, as long as you do not drawdown more than 5% in any given day, you would only breach if your account equity reaches $100,000.

Will I be trading REAL money?

There are TWO phases to the funded account program. PHASE ONE is your audition phase. In this phase you will be trading a paper account. This is NOT real money. The intent of this phase is for you to prove you have the skills to trade the account in a responsible manner while becoming profitable without violating the account rules. PHASE TWO is the funded phase. In this phase you have proven yourself as a capable trader and have now been given the access to investor backed funds. Your account will now be trading with REAL money. The same rules apply in both phases. Withdrawals are ONLY available in the funded phase.

What is the minimum age I must be to be part of your program?

You must be at least 18 years of age, or the applicable minimum legal age in your country, to purchase an assessment.

What is the leverage?

We allow up to 10:1 leverage. Forex, Metals, and Indices are 10:1. Equity shares are 5:1. Cryptos are 2:1. If the Double Leverage Add-on is purchased, Forex and Metals will be 20:1.

What Countries are accepted?

Can I hold positions over the weekend?

We or the Broker reserve the right to refuse to accept any order.
