COMPETITION – F.A.Q.

SIGN UP

Detailed Explanation of Rules & Objectives:

STEP 1: Trading Challenge phase

  • Prove that you can trade by reaching min. profit target within 30 trading days without violating any rules or trading objectives.
  • If you can’t reach the profit target within 30-trading/business days and you haven’t violated any rules you will get a second chance free of charge (same account type and size). If you will violate any rules or objectives, your challenge account will be failed. All Fidelcrest accounts have automatic 24/7 monitoring. Only news event trading might be reviewed manually after your trading period has ended.
  • Once the Challenge phase has been completed you are ready to enter Funded Verification phase and start earning real money.

STEP 2: Funded Verification phase

  • Prove that you can trade with a funded account (under strict risk management) and reach min. profit target within 30 calendar days without violating any rules or trading objectives.
  • You can keep on trying to reach min. profit target as long as you have reached min. profit to keep the funded verification account
  • You can withdraw your commission for that trading period once you have reached min. profit target for commission payout and passed the verification phase. After that, you are ready to enter Funded Professional Account phase.

STEP 3: Funded Professional account

  • You are now one of our team members and you will receive commission after every trading period you’ve managed to reach agreed min. profit target for commission.
  • You can trade your Funded Professional account as long as you won’t reach loss limits or violate any trading rules and objectives. Each trading period takes 30 calendar days.

MicroFx and ProFx programs have 2 different min. profit targets. One profit target to complete evaluation phase and/or receive commissions and another profit target for the funded account which needs to be reached to earn a share of your profits.

MicroFx Program’s Profit targets and trader commissions:

To complete MicroFx Challenge Phase a trader has to reach min. 5% with normal risk strategy and 10% with aggressive strategy. If the trader can’t reach chosen profit target or the trader violates any other trading rules or objectives, challenge will be failed.

After completing the Challenge phase, a trader can start trading with a Funded Verification Account. Min. profit targets for Professional Funded Accounts are: normal risk strategy 2.5% / aggressive strategy 5%. The trader will get 40% commission of profits made during the trading period with a normal account and 50% with an aggressive account after reaching the min. profit target. Minimum profit targets to keep the verification account (= Try again) are: with normal risk strategy 0% and with aggressive strategy 2.5%.

  • Example 1: The Trader makes +12% ($2,400) profit with MicroFx normal strategy USD 20,000 account. Trader receives 40% of $2,400 = $960 and receives a Funded Professional Account.
  • Example 2: The Trader makes +1.5% ($300) profit with MicroFx normal strategy USD 20,000 account. Trader won’t receive any commission but  can try again to reach min. profit target of 2.5% to complete the verification phase as min. profit target of 0% to keep the account was reached.
  • Example 3: The Trader makes +12% ($2,400) profit with MicroFx aggressive strategy USD 20,000 account. Trader receives 50% of $2,400 = $1,200 and receives a Funded Professional Account.
  • Example 4: The Trader makes +1.5% ($300) profit with MicroFx aggressive strategy USD 20,000 account. Trader won’t receive any commission and Funded Verification Account will be failed as min. profit target of 2.5% to keep the account wasn’t reached.

When Funded Verification period has been successfully completed = Trader has reached 2.5% with normal risk strategy or  5% with the aggressive strategy, then the trader will receive commission from verification period and will receive Funded Professional Account.  Min. profit target to keep an account will be removed with a Funded Professional Account. This means that the Trader can trade his/her account as long as the trader won’t reach maximum loss limits or violate any other objectives. To receive commission with the Funded Professional account, a trader has to reach min. 2.5% profit target with the normal risk strategy and min. 5% profit target with the aggressive strategy.  With the normal risk strategy, a trader will receive 40% of reached min. profit target and 80% of all profits made above min. profit target. With the aggressive strategy a trader will receive 50% of reached min. profit target and 90% of all profit above min. profit target.

ProFx Program’s Profit targets and trader commissions:

To complete ProFx Challenge Phase a trader has to reach min. 7.5% with normal risk strategy and 15% with aggressive strategy. If the trader can’t reach chosen profit target or the trader violates any other trading rules or objectives, challenge will be failed.

After completing the ProFx Challenge phase, trader can start trading a Funded Verification Account. Min. profit targets to get a Professional Funded Account are: normal risk strategy 5% / aggressive strategy 10%. The trader will get 40% commission of trading profits with a normal account and 50% with an aggressive account after reaching the min. profit target. Minimum profit targets to keep the verification account (= Try again) are: with normal risk strategy 0% and with aggressive strategy 2.5%.

  • Example 1: The Trader makes +12% ($12,000) profit with ProFx normal strategy USD 100,000 account. Trader receives 40% of $12,000 = $4,800 and receives a Funded Professional Account.
  • Example 2: The Trader makes +1.5% ($1,500) profit with ProFx normal strategy USD 100,000 account. Trader won’t receive any commission but the trader can try again to reach min. profit target of 5% to complete the verification phase as min. profit target of 0% was reached.
  • Example 3: The Trader makes +12% ($12,000) profit with ProFx  aggressive strategy USD 100,000 account. Trader receives 50% of $12,000 = $6,000 and receives a Funded Professional Account.
  • Example 4: The Trader makes +1.5% ($1,500) profit with ProFx  aggressive strategy USD 100,000 account. Trader won’t receive any commission and Funded Verification Account will be failed as min. profit target of 10% wasn’t reached.

When Funded Verification period has been successfully completed = Trader has reached 5% with normal risk strategy or 10% with aggressive strategy, then trader will receive commission from verification period and will receive Funded Professional Account. With Funded Professional Account min profit target to keep an account will be removed. This means that the Trader can trade his/her account as long as the trader won’t violate maximum loss limits or any other objectives. To receive commission with the Funded Professional account trader has to reach min. 5% profit target with the normal risk strategy and min. 10% profit target with the aggressive strategy. With the normal risk strategy, the trader will receive 40% of reached min. profit target and 80% of all profits made above min. profit target. With the aggressive strategy the trader will receive 50% of reached min. profit target and 90% of all profits made above min. profit target.

To meet this objective, depending on chosen trading strategy, you must trade at least for 10 trading days during the trading period. At least one position must be opened on each of these days.

  • A trading day means a day when at least one trade is executed
  • If a trade is held over multiple days, the day when the trade was executed is considered as the trading day.

You must reach at least 10 positive trading days during the Challenge and Verification phase, where a positive day is considered to be such a day when the value of the account equity is higher at 23:59:59 EE(S)T than it was on the same day at 0:00:01 EE(S)T. After completing the verification phase positive days are no longer monitored/required.

This rule can also be called “account stop-loss”. Maximum Loss is the difference between your highest recorded balance and your current equity.

Depending on your trading program, phase and chosen trading strategy the difference between highest recorded balance and subsequent lowest equity cannot reach below 5% – 20%.

For example if the maximum loss is 5%, here is the formula for Maximum Loss calculation:

  • Current Equity / Highest Recorded Balance x 100% = must be over 95% at all times.

This rule can also be called “trader’s daily stop-loss”. According to our trading challenge rules, depending on your trading strategy and initial account capital size this is set between: ProFx trading program 2.5% and 10% and MicroFx trading program 5%  and 15% from the initial capital value. After the challenge phase maximum daily loss limit is reduced by 50%. The rule says that in any moment of the day (EE(S)T – Eastern European Summer Time +3), the result of all closed positions in sum with the currently open floating P/Ls (profits/losses) must not hit the determined daily loss limit. The counting formula:

Current daily loss = results of closed positions of this day + result of open positions.

For example, in the case of the Challenge with the initial capital of $100,000, the Max Daily Loss limit is $1250. If you happen to lose $1000 in your closed trades, your account must not decline more than $250 this day. It must also not go -$250 in your open floating losses. The limit is inclusive of commissions and swaps.

Vice versa, if you profit $1000 in one day, then you can afford to lose $2250, but not more than that. Once again, be reminded that your Maximum Daily Loss counts your open trades as well. For example, if in one day, you have closed trades with a loss of $1000 and then you open a new trade that goes into a floating loss of some -$300 but ends up positive in the end, unfortunately, it is already too late. In one moment, your daily loss was -$1300, which is more than the permitted loss of $1250.

Be careful, the Maximum Daily Loss resets at midnight EE(S)T! Let’s say that one day you had a profit of $1500. On the same day, you have an open position with a currently floating loss of $2000. On this day, the maximum daily loss is not violated. The current daily loss is $500. ( $1500 closed profit – $2000 open position). However, if you hold this position with the open loss of $2000 after midnight, the daily loss limit will be violated. This is because your previous day profit doesn’t count towards a new day and the open loss of $2000 exceeds the max daily permitted loss of $1250.

The size of the Maximum Daily Loss gives trader enough space for trading and it guarantees a clearly defined daily risk to the investor. Both the trader and investor benefit from this rule as the account value will not drop below the limit. That’s also why Maximum Daily Loss limit includes your possible floating losses.

Depending on chosen trading strategy and phase the minimum profit target to complete the phase or earn commission is set between 2.5% to 15% of the initial balance. Profit target means that a trader reaches a profit of at least 2.5% to 15% of the initial account balance in the sum of closed positions on the assigned trading account in 30 trading days. Also, at the end of the trading period, all positions must be closed.

For example: If you trade Challenge with $100,000 capital + low risk strategy targeting min. 2.5% month = your profit target is $2,500.

Minimum position duration is 10 seconds. Scalping is not allowed (trades are allowed to close with TP/SL before 10sec). S/L need to be attached to every trade before the trade is closed at market price.

Maximum allowed margin usage with programs vary between 10% to 30%  depending on account type and phase. In the challenge phase there is more margin available than in verification phase. After the verification has been successfully completed margin usage will be set to the normal level between 10% to 15%. Margin usage may be increased with professional funded accounts after 2 or more trading periods if trader’s strategy requires more margin usage and trader has proved that he/she can manage risks with larger margin usage.

HOW DOES THE MARGIN CALCULATION WORK?
For example, you might be taking a position for a currency pair, and neither the base nor the quote currency is the same as the currency used on your account. As a result, the margin requirement for these kinds of trades can be calculated in a currency that is different from what your own account deals with, which makes calculating margins a bit more difficult.
Let’s say that you decided to trade with GBP and JPY. The currency you use in your account is USD. Suppose that you then decide to take a position with 10,000 units of currency. This means that you are buying 10,000 GBP against an equivalent number of JPY. You are paying in JPY and buying in GBP, but in reality, you are buying JPY with USD. As far as your broker is concerned, your margin requirement will be calculated solely in USD, or your main account currency.

The formula is: MarginPercentage = (MT4_margin / MT4_equity * 100)
Even if margin stays constant, equity is still moving up and down, changing the margin %.

It is prohibited to open orders on any instrument 5 minutes before and after high impact news. Economic events that cannot be traded can be found in Trader Area (https//:my.challenge.fidelcrest.com) under the menu link “Economic Calendar”.

Please remember, high impact news can affect instruments that are not directly correlated to the country releasing its economic data.

During the Challenge and Verification phases all open positions must be closed for weekends (Friday 00:00 EE(S)T +3). With the Funded Professional Account all open positions must be closed latest on the last day of the trading period.

Traders are not allowed to coordinate their trades with third parties or otherwise copy their trading signals from a third party or any other Fidelcrest account. Fidelcrest shall have the right to deem that Traders coordinate or copy their trades if several trades with the same instruments in the same direction are made within one minute of each other.

The Trader is not allowed to provide trading signals from any Fidelcrest Account in any format (digitally or manually) to third parties or any other Fidelcrest Accounts without Fidelcrest approval.

Traders are allowed to trade max 2 challenge phase accounts, only 1 funded verification phase account and max 2 funded professional account at the same time. The maximum available funded initial capital with MicroFx program is USD 20,000 and with ProFx program USD 400,000 per trader/entity. Initial capital can’t be combined to one account if the trader has completed more than 1 challenge account.

Your trading strategy in the challenge phase must be consistent during the whole trading period.  Your trading must demonstrate that your strategy works in the long term and is not based on pure luck.

  • Example 1: Trader purchases 10 challenge accounts and trades them all at the same time with different strategies. Trader manages to reach profit target with 1 account and fails other 9. Has this trader proved that he can trade with other people’s money or was he just lucky with one of his accounts?

The client has the right to cancel the ordered services within 14 days of purchasing the services (Fidelcrest Trading Challenge Evaluation Fee). The client is aware and agrees that this does not apply after starting to use the services, meaning opening the first trade on the allocated Challenge account.

Based on your individual trading methods, it is possible to be granted an exception, however, exceptions are granted only after an interview with our Risk Management team. All possible exceptions must be added on TOU/agreement. Without such granted exception(s), traders who take unreasonable risk may face termination of our relationship.

These Objectives are valid and effective as of the 6th of October 2020.
