TrendRUNNER is used by funded traders to hugely limit the draw down risk that is the most common cause of failing the evaluation period.

Funded trading programs provide an avenue for traders to access capital from proprietary trading firms, enabling them to trade without using their own funds. Here’s an overview of how these programs typically work:

  1. Evaluation Period (“Challenge”):
    • Traders are required to pass an evaluation period where they must demonstrate consistent profitability within specified risk parameters.
    • The duration of this evaluation period can vary, usually ranging from 8 to 30 trading days.
  2. Profit Sharing:
    • Once a trader successfully passes the evaluation, they receive funding from the proprietary trading firm.
    • Traders are allowed to keep a significant percentage of the profits they generate, often ranging from 80% to 90%.
    • Initially, a portion of the profits, typically the first $5,000 to $10,000, may be given in full to the trader before profit sharing with the firm begins.
  3. Programs and Account Sizes:
    • Some popular funded trading programs include Topstep, SurgeTrader, and FTMO, among others.
    • These programs offer different account sizes, ranging from $10,000 to $1,000,000, depending on the specific program.
  4. Costs and Fees:
    • Traders are usually required to pay application fees for the evaluation period. These fees can range from $150 to $650, depending on the desired account size and program.
    • Some programs may also have monthly fees associated with them.

When traders are paying between $400 to $2,000 a time for each evaluation being able to protect against draw-down risk is one of the largest benefits a trader can give themselves.

TrendRUNNER will not only scale you in to the position, limiting your initial exposure risk by keeping it small and only increasing up towards the desired end position size as the trade moves in their favour but it will protect against the impact of a bad trade buy exiting having only set minimal market exposure.
