The scaling plan is in place to ease traders into the live market environment and build their equity consistently without taking undue risk. Since we implemented the scaling plan, the longevity of our traders in their Funded Account™ has significantly increased.
Traders will initially be required to scale their trading plans in order to survive an initial drawdown and to allow a true chance of success in the Trading Combine Step 2 and the Funded Account.
As you build/lose equity, your buying power will increase/decrease based on your end of day account balance, according to the graphs below.
In the Funded Account, once your cumulative profit is greater than $5K, you can request adjusted risk parameters.
The graphs below are based on the Trading Combine you successfully completed. Inside the bar graph is the account balance and to the right is the correlating Max Position Size.
