And it gets even better – scale up three times, and you’ll be rewarded with a full 100% profit share!

Our generosity extends even further. We offer the chance to earn a monthly salary and transition into a full-time trader if you demonstrate the ability to be consistently profitable.

Challenge Rules

What is the Max Time Limit?

In the first two phases, you’ve got a whole 45 days for Phase 1 and 45 days for Phase 2 to show us your trading magic! Once you’re funded, there’s no time limit – trade at your own pace and enjoy the freedom!

Can I extend the Challenge Time?

We offer a generous 45-day duration for each Challenge Phase, giving you ample time to complete the Challenge. This timeframe exceeds what is typically provided by other similar programs, and we believe it’s more than sufficient for you to achieve your trading goals.

What is the Minimum Active Trading Days "ATD"?

You’ll need at least 5 Active Trading Days (ATD) for Phase 1 and Phase 2.

ATD isn’t calendar days. It’s all the days you open new trades.

For instance, starting a trade on Monday and closing it on Thursday counts as just 1 ATD. The day that matters is the one when you opened the trade, not how long it lasted. Also, opening multiple trades on the same day still counts as a single ATD.

To hit the minimum ATD goal, you must open at least 5 trades on 5 separate days for each phase.

What is the Max Daily Drawdown "MDD"?

Each day, your trading account has a Maximum Daily Drawdown (MDD) limit. It’s a crucial rule that you should not exceed.


Your MDD is equal to 4% of your initial account balance.


The Daily Stopout Level (DSL) is your start-of-day balance minus the MDD.


Your Max Daily Drawdown resets daily at Midnight Broker’s Time.


For example, if you began with a $50,000 Challenge and had an account balance of $54,000 on day 3:

  • MDD would be 4% of $50,000 = $2,000
  • DSL would be $54,000 – $2,000 = $52,000


So, keep an eye on your risk and stay within the MDD limit to avoid account termination.

What is the Max Absolute Drawdown "MAD"?

The “Max Absolute Drawdown” (MAD) is a pre-determined dollar amount representing the maximum allowed loss from your initial account balance on any given day. The MAD is 10% of the Initial Account Balance. So, your losses should never surpass a 10% max loss of your initial account balance.


To calculate the MAD:

MAD = 10% x Initial Account Balance


The Stopout Level (SOL) is then calculated by deducting the MAD from the Initial Account Balance:

SOL = Initial Account Balance – (10% x Initial Account Balance)


For example, if your initial account balance is $50,000.

The MAD would be $50,000 x 10% = $5,000.

The SOL would then be $50,000 – $5,000 = $45,000.

Can I merge my accounts?

Account merging is permitted once you become funded. However, please note that you cannot merge accounts during Phases 1 and 2. Additionally, it’s important to note that both accounts must be in net profit to merge accounts. Furthermore, the accounts must be of the same challenge size to allow merging.

What is the Max Funded Capital per trader?

The maximum scaling for each individual account is capped at $200,000. However, each trader can have a maximum funded capital of up to $400,000 when combining two or more accounts.

What are the rules to scale up my account?

Each time you qualify for account growth, we will boost your account balance by 30% of the initial account balance. This gives you more capital to trade with and increases your potential for higher profits.

Here’s how you can scale up to Tier 1 and earn a 90% Profit Share:

  1. Generate a profit of 10% or more within four consecutive months, averaging at least 2.5% monthly.
  2. Ensure that at least two of these four months show net profit.
  3. Keep your account balance positive by the end of the 4th month.

For more information on the scaling plans, visit the challenge scaling plans page.

Refunds & Resets

When can I get a free retake of the challenge?

We provide a complimentary challenge retake for eligible participants. You can qualify for a retake if your Phase 2 account has expired with any amount of net profit and without violating the Max Daily Drawdown (MDD) or Max Absolute Drawdown (MAD) rules.

If you meet these requirements and wish to claim your free retake, please email [email protected].

Is the fee refundable?

We refund 100% of your Challenge account fee with your first payout.


Also, if you haven’t started trading yet and decide you’d like a refund, just get in touch, and we’ll process it for you, no questions asked! However, we do not offer a refund once you’ve made a trade on your account, or if it has been more than 14 days since your initial purchase and did not trade yet.


How will I receive my challenge account logins?

As soon as your payment is confirmed, we’ll email you your login details right after your KYC has been approved.

You can count on us for a prompt and seamless process!

What's the process to get funded?

After signing up and getting your account logins, you’re all set to start trading and showcase your abilities to meet our profit targets outlined in our terms and conditions. Successfully complete Phases 1 and 2, and we’ll send you the login details for your funded account.

What happens if I violate any of the rules?

Be aware that two main rules can result in immediate disqualification: (1) Max Daily Drawdown and (2) Max Absolute Drawdown.


For utmost transparency, we use an automated system that will instantly close all your open trades and freeze your account if either of these rules is breached. Only account reviews are manually conducted.


If a rule violation is detected, that account will be suspended and not eligible for future payouts. However, you can start a new challenge account with a 10% retry discount using the coupon code in the termination email.


What is the Profit Share?

As a CTI Funded trader, you’ll start with an 80% share of the profits. But it gets even better. After your first scale-up to reach Tier 1, your profit share goes up to 90%.

And after scaling up three times, you’ll receive a full 100% profit share. That’s right – 100%!

How do I qualify for the monthly salary?

As a funded trader with CTI, you have the opportunity to earn a monthly salary in addition to your profit share. To qualify for a monthly salary, you must meet the following requirements:


  1. Weekly Payout Qualification: You must qualify for weekly payouts, adhering to all the conditions outlined in the corresponding section of our terms.

  2. Average Monthly Profit: Maintain an average net profit of at least 3% per month since receiving your live-funded account up to the point of qualifying for weekly payouts.
    This does not need to be a consistent 3% each month but should average out to 3% over the entire period. For example, if you achieve 4% profit in the first month, -1% in the second month, and 6% in the third month, your average monthly profit would still be 3%.


Once you meet these conditions, you will be eligible for a monthly salary. You will receive a personalized contract outlining the terms of your salary agreement.

As you continue to trade and generate profits, you will be able to enjoy a steady income in addition to your profit share.

How do I qualify for the 100% profit share?

You must scale up your account three times to qualify for a 100% Profit Share on Tier 2.

How does CTI make money if I receive 100% Profit Share?

We aim to incentivize skilled traders with a consistent track record of profitability to remain with us. To achieve this, we offer a 100% profit share as a reward. If a trader demonstrates exceptional skill, CTI will replicate their trades in our internal live trading account.

When can I get my first payout?

CTI offers a unique payout system for its funded traders. Once you become funded, here are the steps and conditions for receiving payouts:


Refund of Sign-up Fee

Your sign-up fee will be refunded 100% with your first payout.


Eligibility for First Payout:

You can request your first payout once you meet one of the following conditions:

  1. Any time you complete 10 Active Trading Days (ATD). 
  2. Any time you achieve at least 10% in profit.


When you reach 10% net profit for the first time, close all your trades and email [email protected] to request a review of your funded account and process your first payout.


If you have a net profit of less than 10% after completing 10 ATDs, you can still request a payout. You don’t need to wait until you hit 10% profit. So, you can request payouts at any time as long as you have completed at least 10 ATDs.


*Please note that a minimum of 1% of the initial account balance is required in order to make a payout request.


It is important to remember to comply with all the rules and requirements of the challenge to remain eligible for payouts. The payout system is designed to reward successful traders and provide a reliable income for those who prove their trading skills.

What is the payout frequency when i'm funded?

Initial Payout:

As soon as you’re funded, you are eligible for payouts in as little as 2 weeks, provided you meet the criteria for your first payout, which includes completing 10 Active Trading Days or achieving at least 10% in profit (whichever comes first).


Subsequent Payouts:

After your first payout, you can request subsequent payouts during the last 5 days of each calendar month.


Bi-Weekly Payouts:

Once you achieve a 10% net profit on your funded phase, you qualify for bi-weekly payouts.

This schedule allows for flexibility and more frequent income for successful traders.


Weekly Payouts:

  1. You have already received a minimum of 4 payouts.
  2. You have maintained a consistent trading style (extreme risk-taking or erratic trading styles will not qualify).
  3. You have not violated any account rules or trading conditions.


Once you meet these requirements, you can request your weekly payout every Friday. This is a great way to receive your profits more regularly, so it’s worth striving to meet these qualifications.
