City Traders Imperium



What are the Stop Loss Rules?

Our data shows that traders who don’t use stop losses tend not to survive long in trading. That’s why we require you to place a stop loss on every trade.

Not using a stop loss is considered a soft breach – it won’t lead to the termination of your funded account, but our risk management system will automatically close trades without a stop loss within 1 minute after placing the trade to ensure proper risk management.

*Please note that any trades closed without a stop loss and in profit will not be counted towards your profit target objectives.

What type of EAs that are not permitted?

You can trade with any genuine algorithms or EA that you developed or bought to use personally.

However, we prohibit using Martin Gale, High-Frequency Trading, Ultra-Fast Scalping, Latency Arbitrage Trading, Any Tick Scalping Strategies, Copy Trading of other person ‎signals, any Reverse Arbitrage Trading, any Hedge Arbitrage Trading, and the use of any emulators.

Can I use Copy Trading Software?

We encourage independent traders and thinkers who can manage our capital. Therefore, Copy Trading is allowed only if you are copying from your personal trading account into our funded account or from our funded account into other external accounts.


However, you might need to provide proof of this further down the line showing the MT5 statement of the trading account you are copying from to match with the trading account you manage for us. So, you must prove to us that “you” can trade and not others.


Copy trading is prohibited in the following cases:


– When buying an EA online and multiple traders end up using the same EAs resulting in mirrored trading activity and/or copy trading, where the same trades are taken on more than 2 accounts. In such a case, we would contact you and let you know to terminate using such EA.


– Copying other traders’ trades using Social Trading Tools or other copy trading softwares or using challenge or evaluation pass services.

Do you allow Hedging Trades?

Yes! we have no issues with hedging positions. However, you need to be aware that risk is not reduced when hedging positions. Each open position is still considered a new position.


Do you offer any retry discounts?

We provide discounts for returning clients on their second purchases. If you are disqualified from any of our funding programs:
  • We provide a generous 10% discount on your next Challenge or Instant Funding purchases.
  • We also offer a generous 5% discount on your next Direct Funding purchases.
You will receive the Discount Coupon Codes in your termination email, which can be used whenever you decide to sign up again. Kindly be aware that the use of two coupon codes or offers simultaneously is not permitted.

What KYC documents do I need to provide?

In our commitment to transparency and adhering to the highest standards of security, we are proud to be the first proprietary trading firm to introduce a comprehensive KYC (Know Your Customer) process.


This initiative ensures that every first-time client we collaborate with is verified through our dashboard in advance, fostering transparent interactions and aligning with regulatory standards.


Upon successful completion of your initial verification process, rest assured that there will be no recurring need to submit KYC documents.


Nonetheless, there may be occasional requests to refresh certain documents as they approach their expiry dates, ensuring our records remain current and compliant.


To get verified, we will ask you the following:

  1. Proof of ID: National ID, Passport, or Driver’s Licence. 
  2. Proof of Address: Recent Utility Bill, Bank Statement, or Internet Bill.

Yes, of course. We recommend using ForexVPS as it is one company that offers a good price value with great features.

CTI’s server is located in Amsterdam, so if you want the lowest latency possible, then it’s best that you choose your VPS location in Amsterdam.


How do I pay tax on my profit payouts?

All our traders are independent contractors who get the option to payout profits monthly. Thus they are responsible for their own taxes in their own respective countries.

The best way to go about this is to ask an accountant in your city who can give you advice based on your circumstances.
