Detailed Explanations of Trading Objectives

Upon receiving your confirmation of successful payment, you will receive your Trading Platform and Dashboard credentials within 5 minutes, however, for crypto payments the time taken to confirm your order depends on the network congestion and blockchain verification and can take some time.

For local bank payments, your account will be issued as soon as you send us the proof of payment and the funds reflect in our bank account. This is usually processed immediately, but in some instances can take between 2-4 hours.

We allow trading of a wide range of instruments available on your trading platform. This typically includes forex, commodities, indices, and crypto.

Please note that on Think Markets you are required to trade pairs ending with the suffix “x.” For example: EURUSDx, GBPJPYx.

All challenges have unlimited trading time to complete.

We have a minimum trading day objective of five (5) trading days for each challenge phase, wherein a minimum of one (1) position must be opened on each of these days.

A trading day is considered any day when at least one trade is executed.

If a trade is held over multiple days, then the day when the trade was executed is considered as the trading day.

The Maximum drawdown is the maximum amount that your account can drawdown in before you would hard breach your account.

For example, if your initial account balance is $10k and you have a max drawdown of 10%, then your maximum loss value will remain at $9,000 for the duration of your challenge. This is applicable to both account balance and equity.

The Daily Loss Limit is calculated based on the previous day’s end of day balance.

For example, if your prior day’s end-of-day balance was $10,000 you would breach the Daily Loss Limit of 5% should your balance or equity the next day fall to $9,500.

Maximum leverage on our accounts is as follows:

1:50 For forex
1:20 For commodities
1:10 For indices
1:5 For equities
1:2 For crypto

The maximum number of allowed lots is as follows:

$10K – 2 lots
$25K – 5 lots
$50K – 10 lots
$100K – 20 lots
$200K – 40 lots

If you simultaneously execute multiple trades on the same pair which run concurrently, the cumulative lot size across those positions should not exceed the max allowed lot size for that account size.

If you fail to adhere to the max lot size on a trade or position, our system will automatically detect this and send you a warning email. This is only considered a soft breach rule, so you will be able to continue trading your account. The profits made may be deducted. You are allowed 3 soft breaches.

Do note, margin and leverage requirements still apply. So, even though these are
the maximum lots that can be traded, it is possible based on the leverage of the account that you may not be able to trade up to the maximum depending on the
specific trade.

Our spreads are very competitive and are usually less than 1 pip during normal market conditions on most forex pairs and gold. Naturally, spreads do increase during high impact news and period of volatility and traders should be aware of this and factor this into their trading decisions. Current market conditions and factors will determine the spreads at the time.

Commissions are $3.50 per lot, per side. This amounts to $7.00 per round trip.

The reason is because it is prudent for risk management, which is important to have longevity in the markets and protect capital.

After opening a position, you will have a five-minute window to place a stop loss. All trades opened on the same pair during that 5-minute window will be considered as one position for which a stop loss is required on each.

If you fail to place a stop loss within five minutes of executing a trade, our system will automatically detect this and send you a warning email. This is only considered a soft breach rule, so you will be able to continue trading your account. You are allowed 3 soft breaches.

A soft breach means that all trades that violated the rule will not be counted. However, you can continue trading your Assessment or Funded account.

A hard breach means that you violated either the Daily Loss Limit or the Max Trailing Drawdown rule. In the event you have a hard breach, you will fail the Assessment or have your Funded account taken away.

Yes, news trading is permitted. However, traders must be aware that this involves increased risk and there is a possibility of slippage due to the high volatility and liquidity during these periods.

Yes, you can hold trades over the weekend. However, swaps will be charged for overnight positions.

Once you achieve the trading objectives for phase 2 of the evaluation, our team will be notified and review your trading account. This can take a few hours.

Once the review is completed, you will receive an email with instructions on how to access and complete your KYC and Trader Agreement.

Once the agreement is completed and all documents provided, your Funded account will be created, funded, and issued to you. The overall process is typically completed within 24-48 business hours.

 

And then you’re off to the races!

To best serve our clients, trading in all stages of the cooperation between Funding Frontier and the client is via a demo account.

To avoid any confusion, please keep in mind that a Funded Account is a fully simulated account with real market quotes from liquidity providers. The trading data is sent off to a partnered proprietary trading firm where trades are copied at their own discretion using aggregated orders using proprietary risk management techniques.

After you pass our Evaluation, we will email you with your Traders Agreement and KYC requirements. Once your contract is signed, we will send you your Funded Account.

Traders can request a payout within 30 to 14 days after their first trade. When you’re ready to request a payout, simply do so through your Dashboard.

Our team will usually approve your payout within 48 hours, often even sooner. The funds will then be sent to Deel, who will subsequently transfer them to your account.

Deel provides various payout options, including bank transfers and crypto. Feel free to choose the one that suits you best!

Generally, the payout process only takes a couple of business days, but many of our traders have received their funds in under 24 hours!

A spreads test account provides traders with a risk-free environment to view the spreads offered on the brokers we offer. The spreads test account is read-only and therefore you will only be able to see the markets moving on the Trading Platform 4/5 but not place trades. The test account can help you gain familiarity with the dynamics of our brokers and can be a useful tool for both beginner and experienced traders.

In accordance with our Terms and Conditions, all traders associated with our challenge and funded programs must be the sole traders of their accounts.

Due to this, we discourage accessing any trading account via VPN or VPS to track the data through our internal systems properly.

Please note this is common practice for any service that does not allow multiple users on a single account.

To be clear, this does not mean that you are not allowed to use a VPN or VPS. It just means that if you do, if any potentially malicious activity is found on your account the use of a VPN or VPS will be a highly determining factor of whether you are considered to have violated our terms & conditions.
