Rules

Trading Combine: The Weekly Loss Limit and Trailing Max Drawdown are all calculated using the end of trade day Net P&L during the Trading Combine while in a SIM environment.

Funded Account: Similar to the way the Daily Loss Limit is calculated intraday in the Trading Combine Combine, once in the Funded Account, the Weekly Loss Limit, and Trailing Max Drawdown are also liquidated intraday (based on unrealized P&L). This means if you reach one of these limits at any point during the trading day, you will break a rule and you will be locked out of your account immediately.

An additional rule in the Funded Account states: Do not hold positions within 2% of a product’s Daily Price Limit. More information on what this means can be reviewed here.

Commissions & Fees

Trading Combine: Commissions and Fees are 1.85 per side (3.70 round turn) during the Trading Combine while in a SIM environment.

Funded Account: Commissions and fees vary depending on the product you are trading. Please view our explanation on how to calculate your commissions and fees during the Funded Account.

Holiday Trading Hours 

Trading Combine: Traders can participate in the markets according to the CME Group trading hours.

Funded Account: Normally, traders will be required to be flat during the holiday weeks of Independence Day, Thanksgiving, and the last two calendar weeks of December. However, for the 4th of July Holiday 2020, Funded Traders will be able to trade up until Thursday, July 2nd. Please contact your Risk Manager for more information.

Trading during prohibited times will result in the closure of the Funded Account.
