Everything About the Gauntlet Mini™

The Gauntlet Mini™ is a variant of the Gauntlet™ that compresses the timeframe into a shorter period. The Gauntlet Mini™ includes a much stricter rule base that must be adhered to, and enables completion and funding in as short a period as 15 days. The Gauntlet Mini™ focuses specifically on intraday trading and is designed as a tool for recruiting intraday traders.

The Gauntlet Mini™ is offered on a subscription basis in which the candidate can choose either a $25K, $50K, $100K or $150K amount to begin. Over the course of the subscription lifetime, Gauntlet Mini™ candidates will have access to Earn2Trade's full educational library featuring its entire Beginner Crash Course of over 60 video lessons and quizzes, as well as its full portfolio of 50+ webinars featuring over 40 hours of in depth instruction by Earn2Trade.

We've partnered with a proprietary trading firm to validate your Gauntlet Mini™ performance. Upon successful completion of the Gauntlet Mini™, your results will be sent to our proprietary trading partner, who will review your results and bring you on as a funded trading partner of their firm. Earn2Trade will also issue you a certificate upon successful completion as a symbol of passing the Gauntlet Mini™.

What are The Gauntlet Mini™ rules?

Gauntlet Mini™ candidates must adhere to a disciplined trading plan that incorporates the following rules. It is important to note that any deviation from the rules will result in termination of the Gauntlet Mini™ and force a restart of the program.

What offer will I receive upon successful completion?

If a candidate successfully completes The Gauntlet Mini™ they will receive a guaranteed offer of funding from Helios Trading Partners. The offer corresponds to the account parameters of The Gauntlet Mini™ account type they selected apart from the following key differences:

  • Profits can be withdrawn and are subject to an 80/20% profit split in the trader's favor.
  • Daily loss limits are permanently removed after the lower threshold of the trader's maximum drawdown reaches the account's starting balance. (For example after reaching $26,500 on a $25,000 account.)
  • Monthly data fees must be paid by the trader, unless they already have their own data feed.
  • Unscheduled absences of five consecutive trading days will result in account termination.

How long is The Gauntlet Mini™?

The Gauntlet Mini™ takes a minimum of 15 days to complete, assuming that the candidate has traded on at least 15 days. There is no fixed end date. The Gauntlet Mini™ will continue until the candidate successfully meets the targets, or cancels their subscription. Please note that the monthly subscription does not reset the account. If you failed your Gauntlet Mini™ attempt, you have to reset.

Can I reset The Gauntlet Mini™?

Yes. You can reset the Gauntlet Mini™ at any time for $100.00, however the reset will not restart your billing period. The reset will simply revert your account back to its original starting balance.

What is included in the free education?

You have complimentary access to the entire Beginner Crash Course while you are subscribed to the Gauntlet Mini™. The Beginner Crash Course is a 62 lesson trading course, including over 60 detailed webinar topics with over 50 hours of content.
