As you build/lose equity, your buying power will increase/decrease based on your end of day P&L, according to the graphs below.
In Step 2 the Scaling Plan rule will be evaluated each day when the Trade Report is calculated. This will be updated each day at 4 PM CT. You can find out how to calculate your positions here.
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.
In the Funded Account, once your cumulative profit is greater than $5,000, you can request adjusted risk parameters.
Why it is Important:
- Acts as a guide on how to responsibly leverage a growing account
- Over-leveraging causes the most damage to long-term success
