Trader Agreement

Last updated: August 2023

SCOPE OF WORK: In the event of any discrepancies between the terms of the Trader Agreement and the Scope of Work  below, the Scope of Work shall control the following sections:

1) Services Provided

Upon acceptance of Trader’s qualification after successful completion of an assessment or evaluation program, Top One Trader, LLC (the “Company”) shall create and fund account (the “Account”) and provide the Trader with the credentials  to access and trade the Account. 

2) The Account

Trader will need to provide the Company with certain compliance documents required by Trader’s country of residence  to work as an independent contractor. These documents are typically a valid photo ID and address verification document  (bank statement or utility bill dated no more than 90 days prior). 

Upon creation of the Account, Trader will receive an email (the “Welcome Email”) setting forth the following details:

  • Account Login Credentials 
  • Allocated Capital 
  • Trader Portal Credentials (which will contain the Risk Management and Program Rules) 

Trader accepts full responsibility for monitoring the Account to ensure that trades have been executed correctly and to  ensure that no unauthorized trading is occurring in the Account. Trader may not give control over the Account to any  other person or entity and Trader may not control the Account of any other Company authorized trader. Trader shall  maintain the confidentiality of the Account credentials and prevent the unauthorized use thereof at all times. If Trader  becomes aware of any deliberate or inadvertent disclosure, loss, theft or unauthorized use of the Account credentials,  Trader must notify the Company immediately and request a new password. 

To maintain the Account and continue as an authorized trader of the Company, Trader must, at all times, adhere to the  Risk Management and Program Rules. The Risk Management and Program Rules are an integral part of this Agreement. It  is Trader’s responsibility as Trader to carefully read these Risk Management and Program Rules and to inform the  Company of any questions or objections that Trader may have regarding them before entering a trade in the Account. By  entering orders in the Account, Trader agrees, represents, warrants and certifies that Trader understands and accepts  these Risk Management and Program Rules, as they are set forth here and as may be amended from time to time by the  Company and communicated to Trader. Any violation thereof will result in the closing of Trader’s account and  termination as an authorized trader of the Company. Additionally, the following actions may also result in the immediate  closing of Trader’s account: 

  • Exploiting errors or latency in the pricing and/or platform(s) provided by the Broker 
  • Utilizing non-public and/or insider information 
  • Front-running of trades placed elsewhere 
  • Trading in any way that jeopardizes the relationship Prop Account has with a broker or may result in the  canceling of trades 
  • Trading in any way that creates regulatory issues for the Broker 
  • Utilizing any third-party strategy, off-the-shelf strategy or one marketed to pass assessment accounts  Utilizing one strategy to pass an assessment and then utilizing a different strategy in a funded account, as  determined by the Company in cooperation with Prop Account, LLC in their discretion

Account Agreement

Holding a Single Share Equity CFD position into an earnings release pertaining to that underlying equity. To avoid  being in breach of this rule, you must close all such Single Share Equity CFD positions by 3:50 pm Eastern Time on  the day of the release, if an aftermarket release, or on the preceding day, if a before market open release.  Violation of this rule will constitute an immediate, hard breach of your account and any gain or loss on said  position will be removed from any profit calculations.

3) Profit Splits & Withdrawals

As an authorized trader for the Company, the Company agrees to pay Trader the percentage of profit generated in the  account, as set forth herein.

All traders are entitled to one initial on-demand payout. Subsequent to this initial payout, traders may only request an on-demand payout once every 30 days. However, if a trader receives consecutive payouts for two months, they become eligible on the commencement of the third month to opt for bi-weekly payout frequency.

Withdrawals will be paid out via our accounts processing affiliate, Deel. Upon processing of a  withdrawal request, the Company shall also withdraw its share of the trading profits from the account. 

For example, let’s assume the following: 

  • Beginning account balance – $100,000 
  • Profit split 75%/25% in favor of Trader. 
  • Account equity one month later is $120,000 

Trader requests a withdrawal of $10,000. $10,000 in profit will be withdrawn from the Account; Trader’s $7,500 and the  Company’s $2,500. The new Account Balance High Water Mark will be adjusted back to $110,000 for purposes of  adherence to risk management and program rules going forward. Please note that upon requesting a withdrawal,  Trader’s maximum trailing drawdown equity breach level will automatically lock in at Trader’s starting balance. Any  profits above the highwater mark in the Account after a program rule is violated, will be distributed according to the  established profit split. Certainly! Here’s a rephrased version of the sentence in clearer, more legal-like language:


“All traders are entitled to one initial on-demand payout. Subsequent to this initial payout, traders may only request an on-demand payout once every 30 days. However, if a trader receives consecutive payouts for two months, they become eligible on the commencement of the third month to opt for bi-weekly payout frequency.”


Please note: While I strive to offer accurate and high-quality information, this language model is not a substitute for professional legal advice. Always consult with a qualified attorney when drafting or interpreting legal documents or entering into any agreements.

4) Transmission of Orders

The Company shall have no responsibility for delays in the transmission of orders due to disruption, failure or  malfunction of communications facilities and shall not be liable for any claims, losses, damages, costs or expenses,  including attorneys’ fees, to any person or entity arising other than as a direct result of the Company’s gross negligence. 

5) Position & Trading Limits

The Company reserves the right to limit the number of open positions that Trader may enter or maintain in the Account.  The Company or the broker which the Company designates reserve the right to refuse to accept any order. 

6) Trading Hours

All references to the Company hours of trading are in U.S. Eastern Time (“ET”) using a 12-hour format. Access to the  market is typically available from 5:00 PM ET on Sunday to 4:00 PM ET on Friday, but the Company reserves the right to  suspend or modify its trading hours at any time and in such an event will inform clients in advance on a best-efforts basis  of any changes in its operating hours. Trading hours by contract type may vary.
