How is SurgeTrader
Different from True Forex Funds?

SurgeTrader is better for traders from 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. When it comes to funded accounts, traders have several choices in the prop trading industry. But what makes SurgeTrader stand out above companies like True Forex Funds?

A few things…

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.

Trade up to $1 million of our capital

SurgeTraders can trade up to $1 million in our program. True Forex Funds standard account has a maximum allocation of $200K — with the potential to scale marginally larger after several months.

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 our Audition at your own pace — even if it takes months. Some firms, like True Forex Funds, require that you pass in 30 days. With SurgeTrader, it’s simple. Take all the time that your strategy needs to be profitable.

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. When you win, we all win.​

The best prop firm....

I've traded with other prop firms before, but SurgeTrader is by far the best. Very friendly support and fast in answering questions. Not too many rules and just a one-phase audition.

I just passed my Audition with SurgeTrader. I can say that I had no difficulties at all with the experience. Spreads are good and the expectations are fair. I would highly recommend SurgeTrader if you are looking for an Audition at very fair prices.
