1

Do not exceed 8% max drawdown

There is only one Evolution drawdown rule: a static max drawdown limit of 8% which is based on the starting balance of the account. This rule is based on floating account equity. For example, if you have a $10,000 account, the max drawdown limit is $9,200 ($800 max loss). If you have made profit, the drawdown limit still remains the same, allowing you to build a drawdown buffer. If you successfully scale your account, your max drawdown limit will change. For example, when scaling from $10,000 to $20,000 your max drawdown limit will increase from $9,200 to $18,400 (8% of your new issued funding). Each traders’ drawdown limit can be found at any time in their Trading Objections in the Analytics area of the Trader Hub.

2

Scale your account at every 10%

Each time a trader makes 10% profit, they will be eligible to scale their account at a rate of 2x all the way to our max scaling level of $1.28 million. Traders can see their scaling target inside their Trading Objectives in the Analytics area of the Trader Hub. When the scaling target is reached, traders will be automatically given the option to scale their account inside of the Trader Hub, along with receiving a payout or retaining their profits as a drawdown buffer for the next phase. The scaling plan and respective profit splits can be seen on the Evolution page by clicking here.

You are allowed to use an expert advisor

You are allowed to use expert advisors, bots and trade copiers. There is no need to email us prior for acceptance, we allow unrestricted use of expert advisors as long as they comply with our other program rules. You are allowed to freely use trade copiers from any account, even if you do not own the master account or it is not in your name. Our accounts can be freely used as either slave or master accounts – there are truly no restrictions in this regard.

4

Use responsible position sizes

There is no max position size limit on any of our funded accounts. You can use as large a position size which the account leverage allows. We do not restrict or limit your trading and appreciate that there is a great variety in trading styles. However, if you are using excessively large position sizes, please ensure you are practicing responsible risk management or you may risk an account breach due to gambling.

5

Take care trading through news

You are allowed to trade during all news releases and there is no need to close positions prior. If you are trading news releases, please practice responsible risk management. As we encourage responsible trading, placing both buy stops and sell stops on the same instrument in anticipation for a news release is regarded as gambling and will result in an account breach. It is the traders’ decision to trade during news releases but they should understand that there is an elevated chance of suffering an account breach during these conditions and it is their responsibility to ensure no rule breaks occur. This also applies to pending orders which have been activated during news releases. If an account breach arises due to trading during news releases, exceptions cannot be made.

6

You can hold trades over the weekend

You are allowed to hold trades over the weekend on our funded accounts. You are also allowed to trade cryptocurrencies at the weekend. However, one must be aware that it is common for liquidity to be taken off the market during these times, so prices can change abruptly and spreads can often widen dramatically. If an account breach is suffered due to holding trades over the weekend.

7

Using a stop loss is not required

Using a stop loss is not mandatory when trading your funded account. Nonetheless, it may be important to monitor an account closely while a stop loss is not being used due to the increased exposure to excess losses. Likewise, those using excessively large position sizes with no stop loss or risk management protocols risk receiving an account breach due to gambling. We present an amazing opportunity for long term, collaborative growth and are not looking for those who wish to risk our capital excessively for short term gain.

8

Do not surpass 30 days inactivity

There is a standard max inactivity period of 30 days on our funded accounts. This means if 30 days have passed without a trade being placed on an account, the account will be breached and removed from the server entirely. This rule is in place to limit a significant number of inactive accounts remaining active on our system. If you need an extension, please contact support to see if your inactivity period can be increased.

9

Do not use high frequency hedging

We allow standard hedging on our funded accounts. However, high frequency hedging is not allowed. Thus, entering a buy and a sell of the same pair within 10 seconds of each other is not allowed and will result in an account breach. We do this to protect our capital from the negative effects of arbitrage trading styles which cannot be replicated on our central fund and cause excessive risk to our capital.

10

Do not exceed the trade closure limit

All traders must abide by the following rule in regards to trade closures: a trader must not open and close a position in 5 seconds or under. This rule is in place to protect our capital against styles which cause excessive risk and cannot be replicated on our central fund. The first time this breach occurs, it will be ignored and the trader will be given one more chance. This buffer allows for genuine mistakes. However, breaking this rule on two occasions or more will result in an account breach. Discretion may be applied if an account breach is strictly due to an uncontrollable event or market condition.

 

The following conditions are regarded as controllable and no exceptions to the rule can be made:

 

– Using a small stop loss or take profit which closes an operation in 5 seconds or under.
– Using an expert advisor which closes an operation in 5 seconds or under.
– Using a pending order which closes an operation in 5 seconds or under.
– Closing an operation manually in 5 seconds or under.
– Trading around high impact news releases.

 

The following conditions are regarded as uncontrollable and exceptions to the rule can be made:

 

– Experiencing broker errors or inefficiencies, with relevant proof.
– Anomalous news moves such as an unpegging or market failure.

There is a 5% daily drawdown limit based on the account balance at 12:00 CET (platform time) each day. This rule is based on floating account equity. Each traders’ daily drawdown limit can be found at any time in their Trading Objections in the Analytics area of the Trader Hub.

3

Increase your profit split at each payout

The profit split for Quickstart is dependent on the amount of payouts you have received. Each trader will start on 25% profit split for their first payout. However, profit split increases to 50% for payouts 2 to 4  and then rises to 75% after payout 5. Once at 75% profit split, this remains the same for the duration the account is held. One cannot expedite profit split increases based on their overall profit, the increases are based on a payout number basis and not realised profit.
