Is FTP a Funded Account? What is the cost?

No. FTP is a real-time, simulated account. There is no fee for FTP.

 

Why do I have to adjust my plan to the Scaling Plan?

The funded trader Scaling Plan is in place to ease traders into the live market environment and build their equity consistently without taking undue risk. Since the Funding Department implemented the funded trader Scaling Plan the longevity of our Funded Accounts has significantly increased.

 

Why do I have to adhere to the Economic Calendar?

Economic releases cause extreme volatility and large price swings, therefore, are very difficult to trade consistently and profitably. Due to this increased risk, all traders in Funded Trader Preparation and Funded Accounts must be flat 1 minute before until 1 minute after a major economic release.  

 

How is Funded Trader Preparation different from the Combine?

Funded Trader Preparation requires you to follow a different set of rules, the same rules as the Funded Account. The profit targets are also significantly reduced.

 

If I achieve the objective in Funded Trader Preparation, do I receive a Funded Account?

Yes, if you achieve the profit target while adhering to all of the rules set out for you by the Funding Team, you are guaranteed to receive a Funded Account.
