We emphasize the art of defense. With compulsory stop-loss orders and daily loss limits, you'll cultivate habits that safeguard your trading career in the long run.

Understanding the Key Components of the Rapid Challenge

What's the Goal? The Profit Target Explained  

In the Rapid Challenge, your first milestone is to hit an 8% profit target.

Think of it as your financial high jump—this target challenges you to not only survive but excel, ensuring you capitalize on every trading opportunity.

Daily Drawdown: Keeping Losses in Check  

The daily drawdown is 3%. We would look at your balance at the start of the day (5 PM EST) and it would be calculated based on your balance.  

  • Example: On the first day, you start with a 100k prop account. Your daily drawdown is 3% meaning your available daily dd of $3,000 and daily limit would be at 97k. You also need to be aware of your max drawdown which is trailing

Maximum Drawdown: The Ultimate Risk Management Test  

In the 1 Step account, your maximum drawdown is set at 6%, and it is a trailing drawdown that tracks your highest recorded balance until it reaches the starting demo account balance.  

  • Example 1: Starting demo account balance: $100,000 Maximum Simulated Drawdown: 6% of $10,000 = $6,000 Max drawdown level: $100,000 - $6,000 = $94,000  
  • Example 2: After the first day, you make a profit of $5,000 and have a balance of $105,000. Your Max Drawdown is calculated based on this new highest balance. Max Drawdown: 6% of $105,000 = $6,300 Max drawdown level: $105,000 - $6,300 = $98,700  
  • Example 3: On the next day, you incur a loss of $1,000, your starting demo account balance for the next trading day is $104,000. Your max drawdown would be calculated based on the highest recorded balance which was $105,000. Max drawdown: 6% of $105,000 = $6,300 Max drawdown level: $98,700

Please note that the max drawdown is always calculated from the high watermark of your account balance.

First Payout: Reaping the Rewards  

Once you have completed 14 days after your first trade on the account, you will be able to request a payout of your simulated profits.

Fund traders will receive an 80% split of the profit on the account at the time of your request and when you request your first payout, you will also be sent your registration fee refund. Please note - all trades must be closed on the account before you can request your payout.

Trailing Drawdown: Protecting Your Profits  

The trailing drawdown is your career's backstop—it adjusts your maximum allowable loss as your account hits new peaks.  

  • Example: You start out with a 100k account and you make $8,000 profit. You request a withdrawal payout of $6,000. Being that your account achieved 6%, your maximum drawdown is locked in at $100,000. This now leaves you with only 2% for maximum drawdown.
