Rules Explanations

The daily loss limit is the loss amount that you cannot exceed at any point during the trading day between 6:00PM EST to 4:10PM EST.

The daily loss limit is the net loss during that day i.e. for the Tradeify challenge if you lose more than $1000 in the day you will break the rule. The net loss will include all your commissions, fees.

As the daily loss limit is net, if you are $500 in profit in the morning but have a bad spell and end the day $500 in loss, you will not break a rule. You may have lost $1000 from the peak of your day to the end of the day, your net loss for the day is still less than $1000 so you do not break a rule.

If you break this rule your Tradeify challenge or Tradeify Funded Trader accounts will immediately be stopped for trading. The rule resets each trading day.

To pass Step 4 of the Tradeify challenge and for Tradeify funded traders we require that our traders close their positions before 4:10PM Eastern Time Monday through Friday when the markets close. You must not hold any position after the market has closed. Traders can resume trading when the market opens at 6:00PM Eastern Time Monday through Thursday and on Sunday evening. Traders must not have any position open while the market is closed, this will break a rule in the Tradeify challenge and result in rule break in the Tradeify Funded Trader program.

Some futures markets close at different times and you must make sure that you do not hold these positions after the market has closed. These can include: Corn (ZC), Wheat (ZW), Lean Hogs (HE), Live Cattle (LE), Soybeans (ZS), Soybean Meal (ZM), and Soybean Oil (ZL).

There are also holidays where the market may close at different times, again positions must be closed when the market closes.

To pass the final step of the challenge you must make at least 1 trade for a total 10 days. The 10 days do not have to be consecutive and can be spread out over a period. This rule helps us ensure that you are a consistent performer and a chance to test your skills over multiple days and different conditions in the market.
