How is SurgeTrader
Different from True Forex Funds?

SurgeTrader is better for traders than True Forex Funds in several key areas. With an exceptionally simple one-step funding model, SurgeTrader offers an Audition with simple rules and no time restrictions. Despite recent changes in the prop industry worldwide, True Forex Funds continues to rely on evaluations which impose time restrictions or minimum trading days.

Read on to see what else makes SurgeTrader stand out above companies like True Forex Funds!
Traders keep up to 90% of their profits

At SurgeTrader, traders keep up to 90% of the profits they make, once they proceed to a live account — profits they can withdraw on day one. With True Forex Funds, traders are only entitled to 80% of profit, and traders can be forced to be wait as long as two weeks before their first payout.

Trade up to $1 million of our capital

SurgeTraders can trade with starting account balances up to $1 million in our program. True Forex Funds Standard account has a maximum starting allocation of $200K — with the potential to scale marginally larger every three months. It would take many traders well over a year to scale up to a $1 million balance with the True Forex Funds Starter program.

We built our program as a one-step process with simple rules

Other prop firms like True Forex Funds have multiple phases in their evaluation. SurgeTrader features a one-step Audition with just a couple of clear, easy-to-understand trading rules. No multiple phases. No long list of hard-to-understand rules.

There are no time limits on the SurgeTrader Audition

You can take your time and pass all of our Audition at your own pace — even if it takes months. And, you can make as many or as few trades as you want to make. True Forex Funds requires that you pass the Standard evaluation in a maximum of 30 days for Phase 1, and, you must trade a minimum of 5 days during this phase. Don't like these restrictions? Well, you can only drop 1 of them via TFF's Quick Funding or Timeless Funding options, but, you cannot drop both. Why bother? All of SurgeTrader's auditions come with no time restrictions and no minimum trading days.

Request a withdrawal on day 1… and receive the funds same day

When you earn profits in a funded account, we believe that’s your money to do with as you please. So, if you make profits on the first day of trading a live account, you can request a payout right then.


Some firms — like True Forex Funds — do not fund accounts with real money. Traders are still on a demo once they pass. They only pay out the winners, which is why they offer complicated multi-phase challenges. Not SurgeTrader. Since we fund accounts with real money, we want traders to pass and be profitable.
