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 Competition with 15 other Try2BFunded participants.

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.



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. At what time each day will the Stage 2 Competition table be updated with new points and placings?

It will be updated at the conclusion of each trading day.

4. Will I be able to see my ranking within the Try2BFunded terminal?

Yes, within the Try2BFunded terminal there will be a contest table that contains real-time data.
A more detailed version can be found on Novoadvisor by clicking on the ‘More Details’ link.

5. What happens if I do not get one of the top 2 spots in the Tournament?

If you did not hit the maximum allowable drawdown during the Tournament (20%), you would get the chance to begin another Tournament once your current one has concluded.

6. For Tournament Stage 2, is there a maximum daily or weekly loss like in Standard Stage 2?

No, there is not. There is only a maximum drawdown.
