The Easiest Rules To Follow ...

The Funded Trader Program Guidelines

Evaluation Phase

Edit
Edit
Edit
Edit

Example
For the $10,000 evaluation, the Max Relative Drawdown $ is $500. If the starting account balance was $10,000, and at a later time, the Evaluation Trader made a profit of $300, bringing the account balance to $10,300. The Stop Out Level based on the Max Relative Drawdown $ would be $10,300 – $500 = $9,800.

Edit

Evaluation Phase

Please refer to the Scaling Plans Tables to check all the Lot Size Allowance for each Level.

Example #1

If an Evaluation Trader is on a $10,000 Evaluation Funded Account, they have an Initial Lot Size Allowance of 0.60 lots, where they could split it however, they like. If they had, for example, 1 long position on GBPUSD of 0.60 lots, and they moved their stop to breakeven, or in profit, they could then add another 0.60 lots either on the same currency pair or a different one, and utilize more of the 1:100 Leverage.

Example #2

If the Evaluation Trader has one trade of 0.20 lots on GBPJPY and another trade of 0.40 lots on USDCAD, using up their Lot Size Allowance. If the Evaluation Trader had moved their Stop Loss on USDCAD to breakeven or in profit, they would remove the risk of the 0.40 lots and they would be able to allocate an extra 0.40 into another trade on the same or different trading asset.

Portfolio Manager Phases

Edit
Edit

Example: Once passing the Evaluation Phase on the $10,000 Evaluation funded account, The Evaluation Trader becomes a Portfolio Manager and will be given a $40,000 fully funded account to trade.

Then the Stop Out level is based on the 5% Fixed Loss would be $40,000 – ($40,000 x 5%) = $38,000. So, the Portfolio Manager would not lose the account unless the account balance or equity hits $38,000. 

Edit

We can also offer an optional 6% Absolute Drawdown for our Evaluation Traders once they become Portfolio Managers.

Your eligibility for this option will only be available to you once you pass the Evaluation Phase (more info is available upon sign up in the Free Funded Trader Program Course)

Edit

Please refer to the Scaling Plans Tables to check all the Lot Size Allowance for each Level.

Example #1

If an Portfolio Manager is on a $40,000 Funded Account, they have an Initial Lot Size Allowance of 2.40  lots, where they could split it however, they like. If they had, for example, 1 long position on GBPUSD of 2.40 lots, and they moved their stop to breakeven, or in profit, they could then add another 2.40 lots either on the same currency pair or a different one, and utilize more of the 1:100 Leverage.

Example #2

If the Portfolio Manager has one trade of 1.40 lots on GBPJPY and another trade of 1.00 lots on USDCAD, using up their Lot Size Allowance. If the Portfolio Manager Trader had moved their Stop Loss on USDCAD to breakeven or in profit, they would remove the risk of the 1.40 lots and they would be able to allocate an extra 1.40 into another trade on the same or different trading asset.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

You are allowed to have up to 5 evaluation funded accounts at the same time.

However, once passing the evaluation, you are allowed only a 2 PM fully funded account.

This is because we look for independent traders to diversify our risk; hence, having more than 2 fully-funded accounts with the same funded trader will expose us to at least double the risk.  

You do NOT get disqualified immediately if make a genuine mistake. CTI is flexible and does not try to catch you on a genuine mistakes in regards to the following rules.

1. Exceeding the max 1.5% max Stop Loss risk per position.
2. closing trades without a Stop Loss.
3. Exceeding the Max Lot Size Allowance.
4. Finding out that the funded trader is using a copy trading service or using an EA that is also used by other funded traders enrolled in the Funded Trader Program.

When breaking any of the rules above, the trader will not be disqualified but any profits made with one of these violations will not be counted towards the final target.

The only way you would get disqualified immediately is if you hit your Max Loss allowed.

Otherwise, we would never disqualify you without any notice. We usually send warning emails of any violations. At some point, if the violations continue without adhering to our risk management policies, then we would disqualify you after letting you know that we would be taking this action. 

Generally, you should adhere to these specific rules: 

  1. Always use a Stop Loss
  2. Never risk more than 1.5% x Initial Account Size per position.

If you happen to break any of the rules above, we will not disqualify you, but any profit made by violating any of the rules above will not count towards your final evaluation target and we will extend your profit target by the amount of the violations. 

For example, if your Evaluation Profit Target is $300, but you have violated the No Stop Loss Rule by trading without a stop loss and made a profit of $50. Then you would face 2 scenarios: 

  1. If you pass the evaluation: then at the end of your evaluation, your target would be extended by $50, and you would need to continue trading until you hit $350. 
  2. If you fail the evaluation with a profit (let's say $90), then we would deduct the profit made by violation $50, and we would pay you the remaining $40 profit.

No. The evaluation period is up to 1 year. If you complete all the requirements before the 1 year period, then you will be upgraded to the Portfolio Manager with a fully funded account immediately, as long as you have met all the other requirements. 

We look for consistency in your trading over at least 30 trading days because it is important to see consistency in your trading during your Evaluation Phase. This is also, important to avoid gambling. We use the time requirement to show us that you will be a responsible trader and trust to allocate a larger amount of our capital to you.

Carry on trading the same way until you reach the evaluation profit target.

Trades in & out only to fulfil the 30 min active trading days requirements will not be counted. We have our evaluation rules to properly assess the trader's performances over at least 30 trades.

You can, however, reduce your risk. The goal is to avoid having flat equity curve resulting from opening and closing trades without having a real trade according to your trading plan.

The lot sizes also double to scale with the account. For example, if the max lot size for the evaluation phase of the $12.5K funded account is 0.75, your lot size will grow from 0.75 lots to 3 lots once you become a CTI Portfolio Manager. Once we double the account size to $100K, then the lot size will double from 3 to 6 lots, and so on ...

You will be using MetaTrader 4 (commonly known as MT4); the top choice for most FX traders as we want to accommodate all traders.

Also, MT4 can be downloaded on via the Google Play Store, or the Apple App Store. Please get in touch if you are having issues downloading MT4 on your mobile device!

Yes of course. We recommend using ForexVPS as it is one of the companies that offer an good price value with great features.

CTI's server is located in Amsterdam so if you want the lowest latency possible, then it's best that you choose your VPS location as Amsterdam. 

The Leverage on the accounts is 1:100 to allow scaling to traders or opening more positions on other pairs or trading assets.

Simply, for proper risk management practices, you can utilise the 1:100 Leverage in incremental steps that can be found in the Scaling Plans Tables under the "Initial Lot Size Allowance" Column. 

The Lot Size Allowance simply means, how many lots you can have open with a stop loss at risk for all positions combined.

Consider these scenarios If you are on a $12,500 evaluation account 

a. If you open a trade open with 0.75 lots with stop loss NOT at break-even or in profit => then your Lot Size Allowance stays at 0.75 lots.

b. If you have a trade open with 0.75 lots with Stop Loss at break even or in profit, then you have freed up your risk and you can now open a new 0.75 lots into new trades or add more positions.

We use a 3rd party to ensure the best price execution and to connect us directly to our liquidity provider using STP (Straight Through Processing). It is vital you understand that you’re one of our clients and not our broker's client. CTI is the broker’s client.

Usually, it is done immediately through our automated systems. If you don't receive the your logins within 30 min, then please us and we will be more than happy to help you get funded as soon as possible. 

No. There are no fees whatsoever after the 1st payment at the beginning of the evaluation. Also, there are no monthly or hidden fees. We are 100% transparent in our fee structure and we only ask traders to cover the initial potential loss for their evaluation.

The evaluation period starts from the day issuing the funded account and the trader has up to 1 year to complete the evaluation and meet all the requirements.

However, once becoming a Portfolio Manager, the trader can stay up to 2 months without any trading activity. 

In case the Portfolio Manager needs more than 2 months of inactivity, they need to notify CTI via email, and we will put your account on hold.

The only method of payment on our website is by Credit/Debit Card.

However, if you have been struggling with making a payment and you prefer another method, we can accept  Bank Transfer, and/or PayPal. If you prefer one of those 2 last methods, please send us a request via email at [email protected]
