Main trading rules overview

For more informations contact us.

  • Profit target

    A profit target is a predetermined price point at which an investor will exit a trade for a positive gain. In the 1st Evaluation Phase the profit target is set at 10%; in the 2nd Phase it is set at 8%.

  • Max drawdown

    In every stage of your journey you must respect the respective max daily and overall drawdown percentage.

    Daily Drawdown
    It depends on the Phase you are in. When you start the 1st Evaluation Phase, max daily DD is 10%. Once you reach the 2nd Evaluation Phase, it drops to 4%.

    Overall Drawdown
    You are allowed a maximum of 20% loss from the initial balance in the 1st Evaluation Phase. Once you reach the 2nd Evaluation Phase, the overall DD drops to 8%.

  • EA & Strategies

    Use any strategy and Expert Advisor to succeed in your challenge with the exception of EA arbitrage.

    You can use any strategy and EAs or Bots for your trading, with the exception of the Arbitrage ones. Moreover, you are responsible for the operation of such EAs to make sure they do not violate any Trading Rules and Account Limits.

    Your trading style is completely up to you. We have no reason to limit or restrict your trading strategy, be it discretionary trading, hedging, algorithmic trading, EAs, etc. As long as your trading is legitimate, compliant with real market conditions and we can replicate your trades on our live corporate accounts, there is no limitation to your trading style or strategy. You can trade all available instruments and assets in your trading platform (Forex, Indices, Commodities, Stocks, Crypto,…). We give you complete freedom here. If your system is profitable while respecting the rules, we’re happy to see you profit with us.

  • Trading overnight

    1:30 Leverage (There are no time restrictions for overnight trading)

    1:100 Leverage

    Trading after 22:50 (London GMT) is not allowed. All positions must be closed, and trading can resume from 00:00 (London GMT).

  • Max open lots

    The trading account leverage is 1:30 or 1:100. We do not limit the size of trades. Do not abuse it.

    We do not limit you in opening large positions. Always remember to use leverage responsively taking the margin into account.

  • Minimum trading days

    Every Evaluation Phase has its own minimum trading period.

    For the 1st Evaluation Phase, you have to open at least one trade every day for a minimum of 7 days. During the 60-day 2nd Evaluation Phase the number of trading days has to be 14.

  • Profit factor

    The ratio of gains to losses is set at 2.2 for both Phases.

    We want to make sure you are not just a lucky trader. The total gross profit divided by the total gross loss of your trading strategy during the Evaluation Phase must be greater than 2.2. 

  • Min number of trades

    The minimum number of trades for each Evaluation Phase changes. During the 1st Evaluation Phase you have to open at least 7 trades. Throughout the 60-day 2nd Evaluation Phase you have to open at least 28 trades.
