OUR FUNDED TRADER PROGRAM

The Gauntlet Mini™ is an intraday futures trading exam that guarantees trader funding by our proprietary trading firm partner upon successful completion. Our goal is to offer an opportunity for futures traders who have the skill but lack the capital to become professional traders by bringing them together with a proprietary trading firm.

The Gauntlet Mini™ evaluates your trading performance using a set of rules you follow until you’ve traded at least 15 days and reached the profit target specified by your account size. The Gauntlet Mini™ works on a paid subscription basis, and the examination lasts until you meet your target without breaking the rules or until you cancel or change your plan.

Gauntlet Mini™ Rules & FAQ

What are The Gauntlet Mini™ rules?

Gauntlet Mini™ candidates must adhere to the following four rules. It is important to note that any deviation from the rules will prevent the candidate from getting funded unless they reset or restart their evaluation.



Traders who adhere to these rules will automatically pass as soon as they meet three requirements:

What happens after you get funded?

Candidates who pass the Gauntlet Mini™ will receive a guaranteed offer for a funded trading account with our proprietary trading partner firm. The size of that account is the same as the starting size of the Gauntlet Mini™ account you used to pass the evaluation. There are two types of funded trading accounts available:
  • LiveSim Accounts
  • Live Accounts


LiveSim Accounts

LiveSim accounts are paper trading accounts. From the trader’s perspective, they function the same as Live accounts, including withdrawing profits, but with a few added benefits:
  • LiveSim has a quicker setup. Traders can start trading them within two business days of accepting the funding agreement.
  • LiveSim traders get market data for their first exchange for free. Additional exchanges (second and onward) will still need to be paid out of pocket by the trader.


LiveSim is only available until you make your first $5,000 (minus the 20% profit split). After that, you will switch to a live account.

Live Accounts

Traders who choose to start trading on a Live account cannot return to a LiveSim account afterward.

  • Live accounts take longer to set up because they require filing paperwork with a broker.
  • Monthly data fees on Live accounts are $105 for each exchange, including the first.

How much does the program cost?

Candidates are billed for their Gauntlet Mini™ subscription every 30 days until they cancel. There is no subscription fee for funded traders.

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.

What is the Commission on the Gauntlet™/Gauntlet Mini™?

Default commissions during the Gauntlet™ / Gauntlet Mini™ are $2.02 per side. If you would like to have the commissions changed to reflect the live commission structure please contact support through chat or email.
