General FAQ’s

If you have any unanswered questions simply email and we’ll aim to reply within 24 hours.

What is the difference between a Hard Breach and Soft Breach rule?
  • A soft breach of your account means that we will close all trades that have violated the rule/s. A soft breach however, allows you to continue trading on your assessment phase or continue with your funded account if you have already passed our challenge.


  • A hard breach of your account means that you have violated either the daily loss limit or max trailing drawdown rule. A violation of either one or both of these rules will result in a hard breach of your account. A hard breach unfortunately means you will fail your assessment phase or your funded trading account will be removed.
What is 1 lot equal to on the Trading Platform?
  • Forex – 1 lot = $100k notional
  • Index – 1 lot = 1 Contracts (SPX500 – 1 lot – 10 Contracts)
  • Cryptos – 1 lot = 1 coin
  • Silver – 1 lot = 5000 ounces
  • Gold – 1 lot = 100 ounces
  • Oil – 1 lot = 100 barrel
How many lots can I trade? (Max Lots with Risk)

Please find below the maximum lots available a trader can have open across all pairs at any given time, depending on the account size they buy:

$10,000 – 4 lots with risk
$25,000 – 10 lots with risk
$50,000 – 20 lots with risk
$100,000 – 40 lots with risk
$250,000 – 100 lots with risk
$500,000 – 200 lots with risk
$1,000,000 – 400 lots with risk

For example; if you are trading on the $100,000 account and you enter a long position in EURUSD with 20 lots at a price of of 1.2000 and a stop loss of 1.1800, you have 20 lots placed with risk, therefore leaving 20 lots surplus remaining to be placed if you wish. If price moves up and you place your stop loss to 1.2000 then you no longer have risk on your trade. Consequently you would then have another 40 lots available to trade, in addition to the 20 lots available that is currently open.

Please note:
If too many trades are placed with risk, then our system may liquidate all trades that currently have risk.
Margin and leverage requirements apply, meaning you may not be able to trade up to the maximum.

Is there a breach for inactivity?

Yes. On every account, we require you to place at least one trade every 30 days. If this is not done we will consider your account inactive and a breach of your account will occur.
