Can I Hold Positions Overnight?
Yes, you are allowed to hold positions overnight during the week and also over the weekend. There are no trading hours requirements.
What Currency Pairs & Instruments Are Allowed?
Traders can trade all the currency pairs available on the MT4 or MT5 platform. Traders can also trade Gold & Silver. Traders cannot trade indices, energies, stocks or cryptocurrencies.
What Leverage Is Allowed?
Leverage can be a great tool to help manage risk, and a great tool also to help grow accounts however most traders over leverage their accounts. Here at DT4X Trader we aim to help educate traders on the importance of risk management within trading and starting with the correct leverage is one of the basic risk management processes to learn about.
We offer 1:10 leverage on all our accounts for the first stage of funding (before the account scaling feature is used). Once traders reach stage two (FM Level 2), this can be increased to 1:50 on request.
What Happens If I Do Not Make The 5% Profit Target?
As long as the rules are followed, nothing will happen to your account if you make less than 5% profit for the month (our trading month is calculated from the 25th to 25th of each month). If you make less than the 5% your profits are simply rolled over to the following month in hope that it makes it easier for you to then become closer to the 5% target.
You will not fail the program if you do not meet the 5% target.
Is There Any Consistency Rule?
To assist in your development as a consistent Trader, trading activity on your account is required on a minimum of ten (10) trading days in every payout period. In addition, we also have a consistency rule to ensure that you gain experience trading in the market with a consistent risk profile. Our consistency rule requires that you maintain your lot size at not less than 50% of the average lot size of the lapsed period for each payout period. For example, if a trader trades with an average of 2 lots over 5 days, you cannot trade lower than 1 lot or higher than 3 lots (50% variance of 2 lots) over the following days. You are welcome to calculate your average lot size on a daily rolling basis. What you cannot do is enter numerous micro trades (e.g. 0.01 or 0.02 or 0.03 etc.) in an effort to artificially reduce your average lot size. That would amount to ‘gaming the system’ and is unacceptable conduct.
The formula to work out the average lots would be as follows;
(Total number of lots used over the period) / (number of trades over the same period). For example if you traded 0.25, 0.50, 1.00, 0.75 and 0.40. Total number of lots = 2.90. Total number of trade during the period = 5
So, 2.90 / 5 = 0.58 lots. Therefore 0.58 lots would be the average lots traded over this period and you should maintain no more than a 50% variance of this lot size.
Are EA's (Expert Advisors) Allowed?
EA’s (Expert Advisors) may be used – however they require approval from our risk management team. If you wish to use an EA please submit a summary of how the EA operates along with a minimum of three months trading history of the EA to [email protected]
For the EA history, we accept either one of the following:
– MetaTrader Detailed Report. Please don’t confuse this with the standard MetaTrader report. You can find the correct report by opening your MetaTrader Platform (on desktop/PC only) then go to “Account History” then right-click and select “Save As Detailed Report”.
– Myfxbook performance history, you can simply send us the myfxbook link.
– FXBlue performance history, again you can simply send us the fxblue link.
Please note if no trading history of the EA is provided your request may be ignored due to the large number of requests.
Is A Stop Loss Required?
To help aid with risk management we require our traders to use a stop loss for every trade (including pending orders, market execution, limit/stop orders etc.). As the program is essentially an instant funding model without the need for challenges or tests appropriate risk management should be used to demonstrate your ability to manage risk.
Each stop loss must be no more than 2% of the current account balance at the time the trade is placed, it can of course be less than 2%. We have tools available to help you in your member area such as our Position Size Calculator or you are welcome to use your own methods to calculate the appropriate stop loss used.
How Is The Max Loss Calculated & Is There A Max Daily Loss?
We currently have no max daily loss rules. We operate on a max loss only basis. We take all our data directly from the MetaTrader Detailed Report to ensure transparency and the max loss data we use can be found under “Maximal Drawdown” on this report.
The drawdown calculation method is similar to trailing drawdown. For example, on a $50,000 account the max loss is $2,500. This means that $2,500 cannot be lost in the form of equity or balance at any time regardless of the profit on the account. The max loss is increased when the account is doubled.
Is Scalping Allowed?
Scalping is allowed, however every profitable trade must close with at least 5 pips (50 points for gold and silver, as gold and silver measure pips slightly differently to standard currency pairs, however 50 points equals 5 pips essentially).
How Many Trades Can I Open?
To avoid overtrading, each trader can have a maximum of 5 open trades at any one time. This refers to active market orders, so a maximum of 5 market executed trades (trades that have not activated included pending limit/stop orders are not included in the maximum 5 open trades rule until they are activated).

How Does The Withdrawal Growth™ Feature Work?
Our exclusive Withdrawal Growth feature allows our traders to grow quicker while not eating into their profits. When you withdraw your profits and are paid out, the profits still remain virtually in your account. This allows our traders to trade with larger lot sizes going forward than they would have if the profit was also deducted from the MetaTrader platform balance.
How Does Account Scaling Work?
The Account Scaling feature is an incentive we use to allow talented traders to grow quickly with us. Unlike trading with your own funds where it can take many years to reach our Account Scaling levels this allows you to potentially grow quicker while also not risking your own capital as we bear the loss. All traders begin at FM Level 1 (Fund Manager Level 1) which is the account level you join at. Once the Profit Target is reached, traders are progressed to FM Level 2. When 10% profit of the balance at FM Level 2 is made, traders are progressed to FM Level 3. Below is an example of the Account Scaling feature:
FM Level 1: $50,000 Account Size (10% profit required to reach Stage 2). Trader profits $5,000 and is progressed to FM Level 2.
FM Level 2: $100,000 Account Size (10% profit required to reach Stage 3). Trader profits $10,000 and is progressed to FM Level 3.
FM Level 3: $200,000 Account Size (10% profit required to reach Stage 4). Trader profits $20,000 and is progressed to FM Level 4.
FM Level 4: $400,000 Account Size (10% profit required to reach Stage 5). Trader profits $40,000 and is progressed to FM Level 5.
FM Level 5: $800,000 Account Size (10% profit required to reach Stage 6). Trader profits $80,000 and is progressed to Portfolio Manager.
Portfolio Manager: $1,240,000 Account Size. Congratulations! This is the final stage and when traders reach this stage with us they are given the title of Portfolio Manager.
As well as any profits made on their account, Portfolio Managers are offered a fixed salary of $5,000 a month. Portfolio Managers are offered the chance to mentor our traders and we will assist you in building your brand going forward. Withdrawals do not affect the Account Scaling process and there is no minimum balance required to be retained in the account before this feature is applied.
How Do Profit Payouts Work?
Traders are eligible to receive payouts/withdrawals in increment sections of 5%.
You can request a payout once you reach 5%, 10%, 15% and 20% profit of your starting account balance. The payout amount is not limited to 20% and of course it can be more. If you make 32% profit in the one month you would be eligible to receive 30%.
So, if you purchased a $100,000 account size and made $5,030 USD profit you can request a withdrawal for $5,000 (5% of $100,000). Your 60% profit share would then be $3,000 (which is 60% of $5,000).
If you make less than 5% profit, your profit is rolled over to the next month.
When Is The Deadline For Sending An Invoice?
You can request a payout from the 25th of the previous month to the 24th of the current month, no later than 23:59 GMT (UK/London Time) on the 24th.
Can I Receive A Payout To Another Person Or Company?
