Our Maximum Trailing Drawdown is the maximum your account can drawdown before disqualification. It is intended to protect our capital from the outset but disappears as you earn profit.
Here’s how it works…
The initial level is set at 5% from the starting balance of your account. As your account balance increases, the trailing maximum drawdown follows you up until you achieve a profit target of 5% in your account. Once you have achieved a 5% profit target, we take off the trailing drawdown and allow our traders to draw back down to their initial starting balance before breaching the account.
This means for profitable traders the maximum trailing drawdown can be greater than 5%.
