What CTI's Traders Are Saying

On TrustPilot

Phil Thomas CTI Portfolio Manager

"If you're consistently profitable, CTI offers massive account growth, whilst paying you monthly. Very friendly, helpful, and approachable. I can not recommend them enough. I looked at most prop firms before deciding on CTI as they offer industry leading account growth and conditions, Very happy with my decision."

Satyna Ande CTI Portfolio Manager

"Account was set up within hours after I signed up for evaluation. The platform that CTI is using is good, reasonable commissions and very low overnight swaps. I loved the fact that CTI allows us to run trades overnight and weekends. This is a great program for swing traders like me. So far, I am doing well with my trades."

David Aije CTI Evaluation Trader

"CTI is one of the first prop firms offering funding for traders (according to my own research) and in my opinion they are the one of the very best. They give you complete freedom to trade your strategy and their growth program is the most rewarding in the industry. I am currently in their evaluation program and i can't wait to be a part of CTI."

Bernard Inthavanh CTI Portfolio Manager

They paid my 50% profit from the evaluation phase. And as of today, December 23rd 2020, I have started the real portfolio manager account.

Evaluation Phase

During the evaluation, the funded trader is allowed to trade ONLY 28 currency pairs specified below:

The funded trader is allowed to trade the currencies pairs specified above ONLY. Trading Gold & Indices is NOT allowed during the Evaluation Phase. 

If the funded trader trades Gold and/or indices during the evaluation phase, all trades will not be counted towards the final evaluation target.

Edit

Evaluation Phase

For example, if a funded trader is on a $12.5k Evaluation Funded Account, they have a max exposure of 0.60 lots (5:1). They could split Exposure however they like. But 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 a further 0.60 lots either on the same currency pair or a different one.

Another example would be that the trader has one trade of 0.20 lots on GBPJPY and another trade of 0.40 lots on USDCAD, using up their full Exposure. If the trader had moved their stop loss on USDCAD to breakeven or in profit, their Exposure of 0.40 lots would be free for them to allocate into another trade.

PS: Any Profit Made By Violating Our Max Risk Exposure Rule Will Not Count as a Penalty for Risking More Than What Is Allowed To.

Edit

Evaluation Phase

PS: Any Profit Made By Violating Due To Not Having A Stop Loss in Place and/or Risking More Than 1.5% Per Position Rule Will Not Count as a Penalty for Risking More Than What Is Allowed To.

Edit

Evaluation Phase

For example, For the $12.5K evaluation, the max relative Drawdown $ is $500. If the starting account balance was $12,500, and at a later time, the funded trader made a profit of $300, bringing the account balance to $12,800. Then the stop out level based on the Relative Drawdown $ would be $12,800 – $500 = $12,300.

For example, if a funded trader is on a $50k fully Funded Account, they have a max exposure of 3 lots (6:1). They could split Exposure however they like. But if they had, for example, 1 long position on GBPUSD of 3 lot, and they moved their stop to breakeven, or in profit, they could then add a further 3 lots either on the same currency pair or a different one.

Another example would be that the trader has one trade of 2 lots on GBPJPY and another trade of 1 lot on USDCAD, using up their full Exposure. If the trader had moved their stop loss on USDCAD to breakeven or in profit, their Exposure of 1 lot would be free for them to allocate into another trade.

PS: Any Profit Made By Violating Due To Not Having A Stop Loss in Place and/or Risking More Than 1.5% Per Position Rule Will Not Count as a Penalty for Risking More Than What Is Allowed To.

Edit

Portfolio Manager Phases​

For example, once you pass the Evaluation Phase on the $12.5K funded account, you will be given a $50K fully funded account to trade as a Portfolio Manager. Then the stop out level based on the 4% Fixed loss would be $50,000 – ($50,000 x 4%) = $48,000. So, the funded trader would not lose the account until the account equity hits $48,000.

Sabeer Peebaccus CTI Portfolio Manager

I’m a professional trader and recently have traded CTI fund account. The target of 6% was hit within 6 months. My experience with City Traders Imperium has been excellent. The customer service was outstanding. The reply any questions within minutes of asking via Facebook chat or email. They give a clear picture of what trading is, unlike other broker or company. Overall I’m 100% SATISFIED with City Traders Imperium.

Ellis Rowan CTI Portfolio Manager

CTI is the real deal. They provide clear risk management guidelines, trading expectations and a very detailed FAQ on their website. Martin has been really good at providing prompt resolution via email or Telegram messaging. They have upheld and delivered everything as indicated on their website and met my expectations. I would recommend them to any trader interested in trading with a FX prop firm.

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 1 PM fully funded account.

This is because we look for independent traders to diversify our risk; hence, having more than 1 fully funded account with the same funded trader will expose us to at least double the risk.  

No. CTI doesn't disqualify its evaluation funded trader when making a mistake. CTI gives flexibility with the rules and guidelines and notifies the funded trader about any violations during the evaluation and/or after failing the evaluation, and/or after passing the evaluation.

Simply, any profit made with violation of the risk management rules will not be counted towards the final profit 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 prior 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. Do not risk more than 1.5% position. 
  3. Only trade allowed tradeable assets 28 currency pairs.
  4. Do not risk more than the allowed Max Risk Exposure of 5:1. 

If you happen to break any of the rules 1 to 4 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 have to extend your profit target by the amount of the violations. 

For example, If you Evaluation Profit Target is $300, but you have violated the No Stop Loss Rule but trading without a stop loss and made a profit of $50. Then you would phase 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. 

You’d be doing a good job! In this situation, carry on trading the same way until you meet all the other time and trade requirements. We use the trade quantity and time requirements to show us that you will be a responsible trader and trust to allocate capital to you so can trade our capital.

PS: trades in & out only to fulfill 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 reduce the risk but not opening 0.01 lots to fulfil the requirements without proper trading. 

Yes, you can under 1 condition, To move your stop loss to breakeven. For example, if you have reached the max lot exposure of 0.62 lots for the $12.5K evaluation funded account for all open trades, and you moved the stop loss of all open trades to breakeven, then you would free up another 0.62 lots to scale into the your initial trade.

Please remember, the most important rule is to have a max exposure of 5:1 for all evaluation funded accounts, and 6:1 for all fully funded accounts on the PMs levels, at a given time for all the open positions combined.

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 0.62, your lot size will grow from 0.62 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!

No. The Max Risk Exposure 5:1 is Not the same as Leverage 5:1. With a Leverage 5:1, you are worse off because you are limited with the account margins limit. While Max Exposure with 5:1 and leverage of 100:1 allows you to scale into the trades comfortably without having any restriction with the account margins.

A Max Risk exposure of 5:1 simply means, how many lots you can have open with a stop loss at risk. Consider these scenarios If you are on a $12.5K evaluation account and your Max Risk Exposure is 5:1

a. If you open a trade open with 0.6 lots with stop loss NOT at break-even or in profit => then your Max Risk exposure is 5:1.

b. If you have a trade open with 0.6 lots with stop loss AT break even or in profit => your Max Risk exposure at this time is 0. (nothing at risk). So you can open another 0.6 lots into a new trade. and your total open lots are not 1.2 lots. (so you are not limited by the Leverage any leverage or high margin requirements). 

Yes. You should use a stop loss at all time. Once placing your order, your next action should be placing a stop loss so our system doesn't flag your trade. 

Any profits made with no stop loss will not be counted towards your final profit target.

We have 100:1 leverage on our funded accounts. However, this should not affect your trading as you have a max exposure rule that you would need to stay within. 

We allow higher leverage to help you scale into the trades once you have free exposure that you can allocate into more trades.

Your goal from the evaluation is to show us you have a sound risk management approach and to learn how to control risk. Gold is highly volatile and can cause huge losses if not managed well. Therefore, we require you to do the evaluation only on the 28 forex pairs allowed by us and then you would be able to trade Gold during the Portfolio Manager Phases.

In terms of Indices, our liquidity provider requires a minimum of 1 lot to open a trade on indices, therefore, the risk and lot size would be higher than the max risk per position and max exposures defined during the evaluation phases. 

But don't worry, it's just 1 phases. Perform well, and you will be able to trade both Gold + Indices during all the next levels. 

We use a 3rd party to ensure 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 funding 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 for the evaluation to trade freely. However, once becoming a Portfolio Manager, the trader can stay up to 2 months without any trading activity. 

In case the funded traders is needs more than 2 months of inactivity, they need to notify CTI via email. 

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

However, if you have been struggling 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 email us on [email protected]
