Trader Career Path


Pass the Test

The first step of your career as a trader. Take the test on a virtual account and become a funded futures trader.


Upgrade Your Live Accounts

Upgrade through a series of Live accounts by hitting profit targets and withdrawing your profit on each step.


Upgrade to $400,000

Work your way up from the TCP50 to the brand new $400,000 Live account with a drawdown fixed to $380,000.


How the Trader Career Path Works

The Trader Career Path is the best choice for those who want a clear path towards trading futures 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 and withdrawing their profit.

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Once a trader has withdrawn the entire profit target, they will be upgraded to a fresh, larger account size with ample drawdown space to work with.

Trader Career Path FAQ

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 a starting balance equal to your evaluation starting balance. It is entirely up to you, please read about the differences here.

What Happens After You Get Funded in the TCP25?

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 Happens After You Get Funded in the TCP50?

When you hit the target, you withdraw your profit and upgrade to a $100,000 account. This continues until you reach the $400,000 account - once you reach your profit goal on that, you will get a custom offer.


Is NinjaTrader Available?

NinjaTrader is available for free on the evaluation and theLiveSim© .

What Are the Withdrawal Rules?

Once you are funded, you can withdraw 80% of your profits after meeting the profit target of each step. 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.

Starting from September 1, 2022, Withdrawals are processed through Deel, a third-party contract- and payment provider service.

Read more about the withdrawal policies here.

How Can I Obtain the $400,000 Account?

The $400,000 account can only be acquired by starting with the TCP50, passing the test, and upgrading your Live accounts ($50,000, $100,000, and $200,000) and reaching the profit target at each step.

Candidates who start on the TCP25 will only be able to scale up to $200,000 by upgrading their Live accounts.

What Are the Commissions?

Please see the commissions here.

Can I Reset the Evaluation?

Yes, you can. The base price for resets is $100. You can not reset the LiveSim© or Live accounts.

You also receive one free reset every time your monthly subscription is rebilled during the Trader Career Path. These free resets can be used anytime during your subscription, and you can save up more than one, but they are lost when you cancel. If you have multiple evaluations at the same time, free resets are tracked separately for each one, and they can only be used for the subscription you receive them from.
