I am affiliated with Earn2trade, yet I have renounced all payments to myself in exchange for a 10% discount to you for The Gauntlet and their training material!
Above all Earn2Trade is an education company that teaches Forex and Futures trading, while via The Gauntlet challenge it finds and matches successful students with proprietary trading firms: so far 21% of traders in The Gauntlet obtained funding!
Firstly they train Futures and Forex traders and offer personalized education, mentoring sessions and live webinars, as well as hands-on experience with a trading simulator. Furthermore the students who successfully complete their Bootcamp and Gauntlet™ evaluation program will receive a guaranteed offer from their partners.
The team consists of experienced traders, accomplished educators, and outstanding developers.
Read the interview to the founder Ryan Masten.
The Challenge with Earn2Trade is called The Gauntlet (insert code “ftdsc” for 10% discount) and it’s 60 calendar days long, where a minimum of 30 days of trading and 1 trade per week minimum are required.
But what I really like from Earn2Trade is that they ask you to provide a Trading Plan at the beginning of the Challenge, in addition they allow you to trade during off market hours and over the news (still, nobody recommends you to do so!), and you can set your own Max and Weekly Daily Loss.
At Earn2Trade are constantly making improvements to The Gauntlet, they recently announced: a full refund to traders who perform exceptionally well that is at least with a 4:1 ratio (see details in the image on the right), and 100% withdrawal of first 5k in profit for everyone!
New rules about the funded account:
- everyone will have a funded account of $ 25K.
- 80% of profit share to the trader for every funded account.
- FREE beginner course included.
- non-trailing maximum drawdown will depend on your drawdown during the evaluation. See the image on the right.
p.s. Jonathan, my account manager at Earn2Trade, insists in telling me that I’ve inspired the idea of offering a fee refund when I renounced my affiliation fees and had a pretty good performance in The Gauntlet…wow! That’s cool! 🙂
