Setting a stop loss is like putting on a seatbelt when you drive. It’s there to protect you.


Here’s the deal:

Unless you’ve opted for an upgrade (you can find details when you check out), you must set a stop loss when you place a trade. If you don’t, or if you try adding it after the trade’s already begun, that trade will be shut down.

But don’t stress! It’s not a severe rule violation. Think of it as a gentle reminder. You can jump back in and trade again, just make sure you’ve got that stop loss ready from the get-go.

Simply put, this rule ensures our traders are using proper risk management when using our capital to trade with.

The Max Trailing Drawdown is like a safety net for your account. Here’s how it works:

  1. Starting Off: When you kick off, your account has an 8% safety buffer based on your starting balance.
  2. Rising Account: As you profit, this buffer moves up with your closing balance until you gain an 8% profit overall.
  3. Locking In: Once you’ve pocketed an 8% profit, the buffer sticks to your starting amount and doesn’t move with your balance anymore.

Let’s walk through an example:

Imagine you begin with $100,000. You’ve got an 8% safety buffer, which means you’d breach the rule if your balance drops to $92,000. But if you do well and bring it up to $105,000, your new safety net rises to $97,000. If you continue this streak and reach $108,000, the safety buffer gets locked back at your starting amount: $100,000. So, no matter how high you soar – say to $170,000 – you’d only trip the rule if you fall back down to $100,000. But remember, you still need to watch out for the daily 5% drawdown rule.
