Max Position Size

The Max Position Size is the maximum allowable open positions at any given time.

Example: If you have a Max Position Size of 5, you may be long 3 CL (Crude Oil) and Short 2 ES (E-Mini S&P)

 

Daily Loss Limit (Does not eliminate your account from getting funded)

Your Net P&L cannot hit or exceed this amount on any trading day (5:00 PM CT- 3:15 PM CT).  Your positions will not be automatically flattened by our algorithms (depending on market volatility and speed of orders) and your account will be prevented from placing any new trades until the start of the next trading day (5 PM CT).  We enforce this to protect you from yourself and to give you a chance from having one bad day ruining your evaluation.

For example: in a $100,000 Evaluation, the Daily Loss Limit is considered to be triggered when your day's PnL hits or exceeds -$2,500.

 

Trailing Drawdown

1. The Trailing Drawdown will increase a defined distance as your account balance increases.

2. The Trailing Drawdown is calculated in Real-Time during your trading day.

3. If your balance decreases, then your Trailing Drawdown does not change.

You may monitor your Trailing Drawdown in Rithmic RTrader Pro under Auto Liquidate Threshold Value.

Once your Trailing Drawdown reaches your initial starting balance, it will not change for the rest of your evaluation.  Should your account balance touch or fall below this value, then your Evaluation Account will not be eligible for funding. The Trailing Drawdown is calculated in real-time during your trading session and it includes simulated commissions and fees.

Example:

Profit Target

The profit target is the minimum amount of net profit that is needed to be considered for a funded account.

 

Consistency

In order to allow a true chance for success and be guaranteed placement with a funding partner and more importantly to secure the longevity of your trading account, traders must demonstrate the ability to execute trades consistently.  The funding partners basically do not want traders trading in an erratic and inconsistent manner. The funding partners do not want to fund traders who made $10,000 profits in 2 minutes trading a news event and then scalp the remainder of the evaluation.

Traders must have any 3 trading days' net profits total summed up to equal 80% or more of the largest day's net profit.  Most traders do not require 3 days as they can complete this rule within 1 additional day.

Consistency Example:

BEST TRADING DAY: $1,000 (net after commissions).

80% of Largest trading day = $800 (Total Sum of your next 3 best trading days must be equal to or greater than this value).

SUM / TOTAL OF 3 OTHER BEST TRADING DAYS

Trading Day 4 - 2nd Best Trading Day: $400 (net after commissions).

Trading Day 9 - 3rd Best Trading Day: $300 (net after commissions).

Trading Day 15 - 4th Best Trading Day: $240 (net after commissions).

$400 + $300 + $240 = $940 (Over $800).


Another Example:

Best trading day = $1,000

Any other day = $800
