FUTURES Funders

These are the companies providing capital for Futures traders; all challenges are explained in detail in each specific page.

ONEUPTRADER

OneUp Trader is a Trader Recruiting and Placement Company: this means that they run directly the recruiting with the combines model, and assign the traders to a third company that will provide the Funded Account; which company will provide the funds is usually revealed when signing the contracts.
It’s hard to understand who founded Oneuptrader or who is behind it, MES Capital (already a funder on its own right) declares on its website that they joined in with Oneuptrader officially as of June 2017; yet this is relatively important.
It’s strength relies on the fact that it suffice to pass the combine once to get a Funded Account, it won’t cancel your combine if you hit the daily loss, instead it will block it temporarily (no weekly loss limit here), and boosts a strong customer support.

Earn2Trade

Earn2Trade is the only Funder that allows you to trade long term, not purely intraday: very important! It’s an education company that teaches Forex and Futures trading, and matches its successful students with proprietary trading firms. At Earn2Trade are constantly making improvements to The Gauntlet, they recently announced: a full refund to traders who perform exceptionally well (at least 20% profit and less than 5% drawdown), and 100% withdrawal of first 5k in profit for everyone! The team consists of experienced traders, accomplished educators, and outstanding developers. They offer a Beginner Crash Course and the super complete 4 months long Bootcamp. The Challenge with with Earn2Trade is called The Gauntlet and it’s 60 calendar days long, where a minimum of 30 days of trading and 1 trade per week minimum are required; what I really like from Earn2Trade is that they ask you to provide a Trading Plan at the beginning of the Challenge, they allow you to trade during off market hours and over the news (still, nobody recommends you to do so! At least it won’t be as easy to brake any rule and lose the account), and you can set your own Max and Weekly Daily Loss (these are soft caps, you won’t lose the challenge for breaking them). What it truly matters to Earn2Trade is that the traders show good discipline and serious commitment.

TOPSTEPTRADER

In 2017 Topsteptrader funded 400 traders! In 2018, in the months of January and February alone, 241 traders have already been funded! Founded by Michael Patak, a former Dow futures floor trader in Chicago, in 2012, has been awarded “101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For” in 2016. Probably the first and biggest online Funder, It’s strength relies on the fact that they provide the trading funds directly, have a large community of traders, fast customer support, as well as Chat Rooms, daily Facebook webinars, and a very interesting blog; it’s weakness is on the strictness of rules, such as: having to pass the combine twice, and the fact that your account will be cancelled once hit the daily or weekly loss (instead of just blocking the trading account temporarily).

SAVIUS

Savius, LLC is a boutique proprietary trading firm founded by a team of italian traders in Chicago; in addition to its proprietary trading business, Savius has been a Funder since 2015. Probably the smallest among the Funders, it’s model is quite different from the rest as it requires to pass the “Challenge” twice yes but with a minimum of 10 trading days for phase 1 and a maximum of 30 days in phase 2, yet much more interestingly they offer professional training and a suite of tools such as “the radarscreen”, proprietary indicators and trading signals (at a cost). It may a much smaller traders community than the rest, but this may turn up to be a positive: they will focus more energies on you!

FTMO

Unique project as it’s based in Europe, conceived in 2014 in a small Prague office where a handful of young daytraders, including the three future founders, joined their forces and developed it further into an international project in 2017. With 2 “Verification” periods of 10 minimum days, up to 30 and 60 days, its strength lies on the traders support: Account MetriX, Statistical App, Mentor App, Trading Journal, Account Analysis.
