How the Trader Career Path Works

The Trader Career Path is the best choice for those who want a clear path towards trading professionally. It starts with an examination that tests trading proficiency and encourages risk management and discipline. Upon completing the examination, the trader will join a prop trading firm, receive a trading account and then grow that account by meeting fixed objectives.

Take Your Profit and Upgrade


A withdrawal used to mean that the current account balance would fall close to the minimum account balance that needs to be maintained. This gave traders little room to navigate after the first withdrawal. Not on the Trader Career Path.

Once a trader has withdrawn the entire profit target, they will be upgraded to a fresh, larger account size with ample drawdown space to work with.

What Happens After You Pass the Evaluation?

The prop firms will reach out to you and ask if you’d prefer a Live or a LiveSim account with $25,000 starting balance. It is entirely up to you, please read about the differences here.

What Happens After You Get Funded?

When you hit the target, you withdraw your profit and upgrade to a $50,000 account. This continues until you reach the $200,000 account - once you reach your profit goal on that, you will get a custom offer.

What Are the Withdrawal Rules?

You don’t have to wait to accumulate the full profit target, you can also withdraw any amount over $100. The withdrawals have a cost of $10 per payment/ withdrawal, however the proprietary trading firms will waive this charge in its entirety for withdrawals above $500.
