Daniel & Martin - Presenting The Funded Trader Program

Our Mission

Each and every one of us has a purpose in life. A purpose so powerful that it resonates deep within our entire conscious and subconscious being. The personal dream is a life mission that very few people manage to discover within themselves. 

It’s a calling that is beyond material possessions and financial freedom. It provides a reason to rise after each failure and disaster. It stimulates the feelings of joy and gratitude with pain and fear within one experience. 

It all boils down to this one question you need to ask yourself:

“Why do you want to be a trader?”

Join our elite group of the most committed, disciplined traders who are all simultaneously taking the CTI Trader Challenge. A challenge that will bring the best high-performance trader that you know you are.

Unleash the inner trader and choose one of our forex funded accounts. Do you have what it takes to successfully complete the CTI Trader Challenge and trade up to $2,000,000 of our capital RISK-FREE?

"Account was set up within hours after I signed up for evaluation. The platform that CTI is using is good, reasonable commissions and very low overnight swaps. I loved the fact that CTI allows us to run trades overnight and weekends. This is a great program for swing traders like me. So far, I am doing well with my trades."

"CTI is one of the first prop firms offering funding for traders (according to my own research) and in my opinion they are the one of the very best. They give you complete freedom to trade your strategy and their growth program is the most rewarding in the industry. I am currently in their evaluation program and i can't wait to be a part of CTI."

CTI's Funded Trader Program Guidelines

Edit
  • Once passing the evaluation, we will fund you 4 times the initial capital. For example, to qualify for the $70K fully funded account, you will start from $17.5K, and then move up to $70K ($17.5 x 4) once the evaluation objectives are completed.
  • After that, each time you achieve 10% profit target, we will double the account balance up to $2,000,000.
Edit

We believe in fairness in everything we do. We offer %50 profit share because we think of you as an equal partner. You bring your trading skills and we fund you with trading capital. 

  • Compounded Profits: that we pay out compounded profits. So any profits you make is paid to you without affecting your account growth. 
  • Profit Payment: 
    a. During the Evaluation Phase, the profits are paid at the end of the evaluation regardless of you pass or not as long as you end up with a positive balance. 
    b. During the Portfolio Manager Phase, the profits are paid at the end of the calendar month (as long as you are in profit). 
Edit

Unlike others, we don’t force you to over trade with tight time limits for your evaluation. We give you the most flexible time limit with a up to 1 year to pass the evaluation. Whether you pass the evaluation requirements within 3 or 8 months, we will upgrade you to the fully funded trading account immediately.

This time limit rule applies to the evaluation phase only. After passing the evaluation, there will be no time limits for the Portfolio Manager to complete targets. 

Edit
  • To meet this requirement, the trader needs to have traded actively for at least 30 trading days.
  • Definition: A trading day is defined by the day the trader opens a trade. For example, if a trader opens a trade on Monday, and closes the same trade on Tuesday, this counts as 1 trading days. 
  • This rule applies to the evaluation phase only. 
  • During the Portfolio Manager phase, you will not have any minimum active trading days requirement. 
Edit
  • In order for us to properly assess your trading skills, we ask you to complete at least 45 trades to meet this requirement.
  • Opening multiple positions on the same currency pair at an overlapping time is considered 1 trade. For example,  opening 2 (or more) positions on EURUSD at the same time are considered 1 trade until both positions are completely closed. 
  • This rule applies to the evaluation phase only. 
  • During the Portfolio Manager phase, you will have only a minimum of 4 active trades per month. 
Edit
  • Definition: The max relative drawdown is the maximum difference from the highest account balance $ to the lowest equity $ (unrealised value). 
  • The losses should never exceed the value of the maximum relative drawdown $ specified at the start of each evaluation and portfolio manager phase. 
  • This rule applies to the evaluation phase and all of the funded trader program phases. 
Edit
  • You must take into consideration that every market order, pending order, or stop order has a stop loss of a max of 1.5% risk of the account balance. 
  • If you open multiple positions on the same currency pair, the multiple positions’ combined risk can be up to 1.5% of the account balance are considered 1 trade.
  • If you are hedging, then the risk on all the open positions must not exceed 1.5% per trade. However,  If you open 2 trades on two different forex pairs, then you can risk 1.5% of the account balance on each trade. 
  • This rule applies to the evaluation phase and all of the funded trader program phases. 
Edit
  • EAs & Scalping are allowed.
  • Hedging is allowed.
  • Holding trades overnight is allowed.
  • Holding trades over the weekends is allowed. 
  • These rules apply to the evaluation phase and all of the funded trader program phases. 
Edit
  • Definition: The Maximum Exposure is the maximum lot size you can open at the same time while trading. (Please look at the table below to check the maximum lot size allowed for each phase).
  • Moving stop loss to breakeven will allow you to open more lots.
  • For example, if you have 3 open trades [1 lot + 1 lot + 1.5 lots], then moving the stop loss to breakeven (of the 1.5 lots trade) will allow for a new 1.5 lots to risk on more trades, and so on.  
  • This rule applies to the evaluation phase and all of the funded trader program phases. 
Edit

With CTI, you can trade all the combination the 28 forex currency pairs. This includes the following:

  • Majors Pairs: EURUSD, GBPUSD, NZDUSD, AUDUSD, USDCHF, USDCAD, USDJPY

No, We pay you the equivalent of 50% of the profits made. Your account is left intact, allowing your profit to compound.

For example, if you have reached the max lot exposure of 0.60 lots for the evaluation for the $50K funded account for all open trades, and you moved the stop loss of all open trades to breakeven, then you would be able to open another 0.60 lots.

Please remember, the most important rule is to have a max of 0.60 lots risk at a given time for all the open positions combined.

The lot sizes also double to scale with the account. For example, If the max lot size for the evaluation phase of the $50K funded trader account, your lot size will grow from 0.60 lots to 2.4 lots (0.60x4) once you become a CTI portfolio manager. Once we double the account size to $100K, then the lot size will double from 2.4 to 4.8 lots, and so on ...

The STP (or Straight Through Processing) requires no dealing desk. All orders are routed to the broker’s liquidity providers, and prices are executed at the bid/ask rate provided by liquidity providers.

Liquidity providers, in this case, are hedge funds, big banks, and investors that effectively act as counterparties to each trade.
