Trading window 180 days 30 days -

This is the time we allocate for you to find and execute all your trades. The time starts from when you execute your first trade.

Minimum trading days 30 5 -

This objective allows us to assess how you’re able to find new opportunities in the market each day. We qualify and count a trading day when you execute 1 or more trades in a given day. They do not have to be consecutive trading days.

Max daily loss 5% 5% 5%

You must not lose more than a pre-defined amount of the available balance in any given trading day. E.g. On a $50,000 balance, losing $2,500 would be 5% loss.

Max drawdown 10% 10% 10%

Drawdown is a measurment of how far your balance has declined, consecutively, from the last recorded highest amount. E.g. on a $50,000 balance, losing $5,000 would be a 10% drawdown. You must not exceed this amount.

Profit target 10% 5% -

You must achieve at least a 10% gain. On a $50,000 balance, this would be at least a $5,000 profit. Any open negative positions will be used in the gain calculation.

Average duration of trades > 3 mins. > 3 mins -

On average, your trade duration - from open to close time - should not be less than the amount we’ve defined.

Realised Trading Opportunities 100 20 -

Your realised trades allow us to determine if you have an edge or if your results are a “random walk”. Said another way, have you got something or have you fluked it! We’ve therefore stated a minimum number of realised trades required for us to make this assessment.

Long short ratio < 85 % - -

We want to see if you can make money when the market is moving up and down.. Your trading history should not be comprised of more than 85% long. Conversely your trading history cannot be comprised of more than 85% short.

Pip expectancy > 2 - -

We want to see how many pips your strategy makes net after commissions, spreads and all realised trades. The formula we use is: E(R) = (PP x APW) – (PN x APL). Where: E(R): Expected Return, PP: Probability of (+) trade, APW: Average Pip Win, PN: Probability of (-) trade and APL: Average Pip Loss. For example, Example:(0.75 x 15) – (0.25 x 25) = 5 pip expectancy (E(R)). In this example, 75% of the time your average win is 15 pips and 25% your average loss is 25 pips.

Profit share - - 70%

You will be able to withdraw profits you make whilst trading with our real capital. You get to keep 70% of any profits you make.

Loss-cover - - 100%

Remember in trading, not every trade will go as planned. We cover any losses so you can focus on generating profits.

FAQs

Take a look at frequently asked questions below.

If your question isn't answered here you can read all of our FAQs. If you still need help, contact us through our 24/7 live chat support.

Which markets can be traded on the HowToTrade prop trading evaluation?

Everything. There are lots you can trade during your prop trading evaluation with HowToTrade. You can trade Forex majors, minors and exotics. Also, Indices, CFD Shares, Commodities and digital currencies.

What’s the profit split on HowToTrade’s funded trader program?

Once you pass the evaluation stage and our incubator period, your funding will be allocated. Funding starts at $50,000 USD and if you’re confident, we can scale you up to $2.5M USD. You will receive 70% of any profits. Of course, further terms and conditions apply. Learn more about prop trading in our proprietary trading content hub.

What’s your incubator period for?

Every trader that would like to become a funded trader with HowToTrade goes through an evaluation and incubator period. Our evaluation period is 180 days and if you pass the evaluation, we then work with you on a 30-day incubator period. This 30-day period is designed to prepare you and verify your trading style, mindset and behaviour before our real capital is placed in your account. You’ll have a team supporting you and preparing you for funding.

What do you mean by HowToTrade gives real capital?

Most prop firms do not give you real funds to trade with. The profits you get are from other people’s subscription fees and they’re getting you to trade on a demo account. At HowToTrade we feel this isn’t in the best interest of traders. We will give you real capital to trade within the live markets and any profits you make come from the market, not from other customer’s fees.

Can I trade EAs/Robots with HowToTrade’s proprietary trading firm?

Yes. You can trade using your own built EA or robot. The risk desk, before allocating funding, will use its discretion to ascertain whether the automated trading methods you have applied are fair and reasonable.

How often can I withdraw my HowToTrade prop trading profits?

You can withdraw any profits twice per month into your preferred payment method.

What is HowToTrade’s criteria for passing the prop evaluation?

HowToTrade’s prop criteria is fair and well thought out. It’s designed to be realistic and transparent. You can find out more about our criteria here. It is subject to change based on our risk desk recommendations.

How can I access your proprietary trading firm from inside the trading room?

Our team has dedicated a section of the trading room specifically to prop trading, in which you can access your progress, statistics, trading logs, charts, profit share, and many more. In this dedicated tab, you will also find our web trader (from our partner broker), so you can trade directly from your browser or download MT4 to your local system.
