Everything About the Gauntlet™

The Gauntlet™ is a custom developed Futures trading evaluation tool that will determine if you are ready to trade live in the Futures market, and it is the final step in our education program. The evaluation is based on a few hard rules enabling the trader maximum flexibility in pursuing their preferred trading strategy. It should be attempted after finishing the Beginner Crash Course and spending significant time on a trading simulator. Those with ample experience in the market already can attempt to pass The Gauntlet™ as well.

We've partnered with proprietary a proprietary trading firm to validate your Gauntlet™ performance. Upon successful completion of The Gauntlet™ 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™.

What are The Gauntlet™ rules?

We acknowledge that every single trader is different, and our proprietary trading partner, Helios Trading Partners is looking for diversified traders. Therefore, we only have a few rules in order to successfully pass The Gauntlet™.

1) Manage a $25,000.00 account over a 60 calendar day period
2) Submit a Trading Plan in the Dashboard
3) Trade a minimum of 30 calendar days and once per week
4) Reach a 10% profit target by the end of The Gauntlet™
5) 10% Maximum drawdown

Candidates also have the option of choosing preset stop losses, daily losses and weekly loss limits, as well as setting their own additional rules for the 60-day evaluation period. It's important to note that if a candidate chooses to set their own rules, they should do their best to abide by them.

What offer will I receive upon successful completion?

If a candidate successfully completes The Gauntlet™ they will receive a guaranteed funding offer from Helios Trading Partners. The offer contains, but is not limited to three main points, including the funding amount, the maximum drawdown and the profit split.

Funding Amount
Funding falls within a $10-25,000.00 range, and all of the funds are available for the traders from day one as available margin.

Maximum Drawdown
The maximum drawdown ranges from 10%-25%

Profit Split
From 60-80% profit share for the trader's

While Helios Trading Partners examines all aspects of the report produced by The Gauntlet™ trader evaluation program, in order to achieve the higher ranges of funding, drawdown and profit share, the candidate should exhibit a consistent trading style that reflects the trading plan submitted at the start of their evaluation program. In addition, the profit to drawdown ratio should be stronger than 1:1 and reach more standard industry targets of 1.5:1 or better.

Here's an example of a real offer sent to a successful candidate from Helios Trading Partners.

Can I reset The Gauntlet™?

Yes. If you're currently taking The Gauntlet™ you can reset it at half price ($174.50), however, you will need to trade for 60 calendar days starting from the reset.

Please note that you can only reset at half price before you go over the 10% drawdown limit.

After the purchase, you will have 72 hours to set up and start your Gauntlet™. If you don't set up and start your Gauntlet™ for more than 72 hours, the evaluation period will start automatically, regardless of your preferences.
