Q & A – The Trading Challenge

What do I have to do to complete the challenge phase?2021-03-29T18:57:50+00:00
  1. Reach the profit target within 30 calendar days
  2. Not to hit daily or maximum loss limits
  3. To reach a minimum amount of trading days (Normal strategy 10, aggressive 5). Trading day = you have to open at least one position every trading day
  4. To close all positions after you have reached the profit target and minimum amount of trading days
Why do I have to hold all my positions for a minimum period of 10 seconds?2021-03-29T18:59:27+00:00

We have the rule because it’s very easy to generate huge gains with scalping the market on demo accounts. Please note that we copy funded account trades to our live coverage account where we pay out your share of profits.

There is no slippage on demo accounts and we cannot replicate such trades on live environment with a funded account.

What if I have losing trades?2021-03-29T19:11:49+00:00

All losses are covered by Fidelcrest. That is the reason why we have Maximum loss limits to prevent losing all of allocated trading capital and protect investor funds

How are maximum loss and daily loss limits calculated?2021-03-29T19:17:37+00:00

Maximum loss: This rule can also be called “account stop-loss”. Maximum Loss is the difference between your highest recorded balance and your current equity.


Maximum daily loss: This rule can also be called “trader’s daily stop-loss”. The rule says that in any moment of the day (EE(S)T – Eastern European Summer Time), the result of all closed positions in sum with the currently open floating P/Ls (profits/losses) must not hit the determined daily loss limit. 


The counting formula: Current daily loss = results of closed positions of this day + result of open positions.

What if I can’t reach the profit target in the challenge?2021-03-29T19:18:32+00:00

In such a case, you can try again by purchasing a new Challenge account.
