Frequently Asked Questions
Before we present our trading program, we would like to become better acquainted and build a relationship with you.
We care about you and your trading experience. We provide detailed insight about our trading platform so that your experience begins efficiently. Once you have chosen your preferred evaluation program, you will have access to trade on a live account, earn profits and become qualified to move to the main stage. Our evaluation program is a clear, step-by-step process including user-friendly guidelines.
The 5%ers’ Trading Guidelines
Drawdown is measured with the following calculation: The P & L money difference from the highest balance (closed positions P&L), value to the lowest equity (closed + open positions), whichever arrives later.
For example: highest balance on 1st May 12:45pm = $10,250; Lowest equity after 1st May 12:45pm = $9,800; The drawdown is $10,250 – $9,800 = $450.
The rule-of-thumb for maximum (max.) exposure in all accounts is 5:1. However, we prefer to simplify things and consider only the lot size and not the actual $ value of a position.
For example: An account balance of $10,000 has a max. exposure allowance of $10,000 X 5 = $50,000 = 0.50 Lot. In a balance of $40,000, the max exposure is $40,000 X 5 = $200,000 = 2.0 Lots.
As we encourage holding on to running winners – any profitable floating positions with stop loss orders beyond the profit level, above break-even is not included in the exposure count. More positions can be traded at once.
YES, we allow overnight trading and over the weekend as well.
We are the most flexible trading fund in the forex industry because we especially want to assist our traders with diverse trading styles and personalities.
We do not want to tamper with a recipe that is already working for you.
The 5%ers’ Evaluation Programs
Our evaluation period is specifically designed to observe how traders handle a range of market conditions while demonstrating their performance and stability. Our team’s objective is to ensure that the traders’ abilities are reliable and mature to cope with a diverse range of the market’s intensity and challenges.
Firstly, well done! Continue to trade until you can qualify as one of The 5%ers’ funded traders. The benefit is that you gain more profit to bank when you’re evaluation period ends. Please note: all traders are required to continue using the same trading method, as our evaluation program is designed for you to show consistency and solid results.
Yes. If for any reason you’re held back or are actively trading and just need more time. Please request a time extension on your evaluation period. There is a dedicated team working behind our website and brand. If we have not been notified for this request then the account will be terminated once 6 months is reached.
The evaluation period is critical for both the traders and The 5%ers, since our capital funding team invest much time and effort into the traders and their careers. We are committed to ensure that traders will be evaluated with using real, live accounts. This fee will be your maximum payment. We are seeking traders who are responsible, patient and firm risk managers, who have the ability to earn themselves substantial amounts of profit, which means that you could make up for that fee in your winnings.
