How it works

The program consists of 3 qualifying steps: one free introductory stage and two qualification stages.

To become familiar with the platform, start with the free demo stage (“Stage 0”).

If you are already familiar with the platform, proceed to the first qualification stage (“Stage I”).

To succeed on the first qualification stage, you also need to show a profit of 6%, while avoiding significant losses. The second mandatory requirement is a minimum of 5 days of deposit turnover.

When you successfully complete Stage I, you will have a choice between two versions for the second stage (“Stage II”): Standard (very similar to Stage I) or Points PRO which target is achievement of points rather than only profit.

Trades who succeed in passing Stage II will receive real money under management.

Stage 0 is free. The two official Qualifying Stages, Stage I and Stage II, and the Funded Stage have a monthly subscription fee dependent on your account size:

Funded Account

If you qualify successfully, you will be granted a funded account of $30,000, $50,000 or $100,000 under management. The funded account size depends on what amount has been selected for Stage II.

When trading on a real-money account, you need to consider only the maximum drawdown value - you cannot lose more than 4% of the initial portfolio amount. There is no capital turnover requirement. Nevertheless, we expect profitable capital management with minimal drawdowns on the account.

The maximum allowable position size per single ticker is 15% of total account size. Any trader who opens the position with a size greater than the maximum allowed limit will asked to reduce it. If a trader deliberately violates this requirement, his access to the program may be restricted.

Try2BFunded Program operates only during main NYSE and Nasdaq trade sessions (9:30am - 4:00pm EST). Please don't place any orders outside of those hours. Try2BFunded will not bear any responsibility for losses caused by trading during pre-market or post-market hours.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)

1. Am I responsible for reimbursing any trading losses?

No, there are no financial risks for the participants. The monthly subscription fee at Stage 1 and Stage 2 is $100-$300 (depending on the initial account balance). 

This monthly subscription fee is also applicable to the funded real-money accounts.

The monthly fee is $100 for a $30,000 account, $150 for a $50,000 account, and $300 for a $100,000 account.

2. How does the 2% Maximum Weekly Loss work at Classical version of the Stage 2?

It works in a same was as the Maximum Daily Loss, but does so based on the last seven calendar days, rather than just a single trading day.

Example #1
If a trader has had a maximum portfolio value of $30,000 and he has not traded over the past 7 calendar days (i.e., the portfolio is still at $30,000), then the loss amount the trader should avoid is $600 (2% of the portfolio value).

You can find full explanation with more examples in our blog

 

3. Is it better to use a market order or limit order?

We don’t provide trading advice. However, if precise price execution is important, it is highly recommended to use limit orders on our platform. 

4. What is the difference between a market order and limit order?

A market order will execute a buy or sell order of the security immediately at the next available price.

A limit order will execute a buy or sell order of the security only when the specified price (or better) is available.
 

5. What happens if I get to the funded real-money account and have a 4% drawdown or 2% daily loss? Do I lose access to the account?

On a funded real-money account, in the event it has drawn down 4% from the starting account balance (or starting account balance as of the last payment distribution) or incurred a 2% daily loss, the internal risk system will cease access to the funded real-money account and will return the trader to the beginning of Stage 1.

6. Does the list of instruments stay the same throughout the qualifying stages and once on a funded real-money account?

Yes, there is the same list of instruments available for trading throughout all parts of the program.
