We only offer day trading as of now. We don't allow any HFT strategies, spread trading, or any system that is blatantly try to game the system. We are looking for realistic trading strategies that will work in a real environment.
3. Payout Questions
Which countries do you payout to?
We payout using deel. Here is the list of countries that deel does not payout to.
You can start getting paid out once you hit 4% profit in the funded account stage.
4. Funded account
Yes, EOD drawdown stops once it gets to account balance. The daily loss can be removed upon request, but we believe it's a large enough daily loss that it is good for risk management.
Does consistency rule stay in the funded account?
Yes, to get paid out you may not have 40% of your overall profits come from more than one trading day. This is to encourage consistent strategies and not gambling.
No, once you are in profit, and have reached 4% profit target in the funded account, you can request any payout. There is no max withdrawal like many firms will do to cap how much you can make.
