Minimum Trading Days A trading day is defined as a day when at least one trade is placed.
Applies for the evaluation process only.
Profit target Profit target means that a trader must hit a profit in the sum of closed positions on the assigned trading account.
Applies for the evaluation process only.
Max Loss The equity of the trading account must not, at any moment during both stages duration, reach a loss of -10% relative to initial balance.
Today's Max Loss This value is based on 5% of starting balance of each trading day, and will update at midnight broker reset time +2 GMT. Today's Max Loss is calculated using the following formula:
Today's Loss Allowance This value is dynamic throughout a trading day and will change based on the Daily Loss formula. E.g. (Please refer to the picture below) For a fresh $100.000 account, Today's Max Loss (1) under the Trading Objective column will reflect 5% of starting balance of the trading day. Imagine you open a position and later down the day you close it at a loss of -$1200 (given the fact that it was the lowest peak in performance); Today's Loss Allowance (2) under the Statistic column will decrease to $3800. Now you add another position that goes directly into profit +$2600 and close it, your allowance now has changed to $6400. This means you are now allowed to lose the initial $5000, plus the profits.
Positive Days At least 50% of your total trading days should end in profit net of swap and commissions.
Applies for the evaluation process only.
Swaps The total amount of money you paid to the broker as swaps.
Commissions The total amount of money you paid to the broker as commissions for each trade.
Martingale It is defined as opening a position while first position opened is in drawdown, and following positions added in the same direction and same symbol are opened in multipliers of first position size. E.g. For a 1 lot sell position, a multiplier in this case starts from 1.01, so 1 and below is not classified as martingale.
Martingale strategy is not allowed. If the risk desk finds a trader is using this prohibited strategy, account will be closed and fee will not be refunded.
