Everything About the Gauntlet™
The Gauntlet™ is a custom developed Futures trading evaluation
tool that will help you determine if you are ready to trade live in the
Futures market, and it is the final step in our education
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 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™.

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

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

How long is The Gauntlet™?
The Gauntlet™ is 60 calendar days. It cannot be completed in
an earlier time period than the entire 60 days, even if the
profit target is met earlier. The intention of The Gauntlet™
is to gauge how a candidate will trade over the entire period,
even if the minimum profit target is hit earlier.
Can I reset The Gauntlet™?
Yes. If you’re currently taking the Gauntlet you can reset it at $229, and you will need to trade for 60 calendar days starting from the reset.
Please note that you can only get the reset price of the Gauntlet before you go over the 10% drawdown limit or go one week without trading.
Does my 60-day evaluation period start immediately upon
purchasing The Gauntlet™?
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.
