Risk Management
 Trading Rules and Account Limits

Our risk management rules are in place to protect our capital and to protect the profits you make.
These rules are not negotiable, so please don’t ask.
The rules and limits apply to both the Practical Assessment Forex Trading Demo Account and the Live account.

Trading Rules

T4TCapital will manage your assessment automatically to ensure the risk is minimal, with industry standard metrics. If you breach any of the account management rules your trade will be closed. Please note: A breach of the account management rules does not mean a reset is required. Your trades that breach these rules will result in your trade being automatically closed, trades include open or pending trades.

All professional traders attach a Stop Loss to every trade the moment their trade hits the market. Every time you open a position or place a pending order in the market it must have a valid stop loss attached to it!

What does this mean?
You cannot enter at market and then add a stop loss after you have placed the order. Every position you have must have a stop loss.

Why pending orders?
The entry order could be triggered and with no stop loss attached that could potentially result in the entire account being lost.

If you do have a market order or a pending order without a stop loss then the order will be automatically closed.

You are not permitted to hold positions over the weekend. All positions will be closed automatically by T4TCapital on Friday 7.00pm GMT/UTC. You are permitted to trade at all other times except if T4TCapital Management halts all trading due to ‘unforeseen highly volatility international events’. In this case, T4TCapital management will notify you directly about the trading halt.

This will not result in a reset.

Your Maximum Position Size is controlled by the leveraging settings of our accounts. If MT allows you to place the trade you can do it. No more maximum lot size positions. The account balance is leveraged at a ratio of 10:1. This simply means that for every $10,000 USD in your trading account, you can trade $100,000 USD or 1 standard lot.

Account Limits

If you breach any of the limits below your assessment will be closed. To continue with the assessment you can pay the reset fee for your account size and your account will be reset to the start balance and you may continue with the assessment.

The Weekly Loss Limit Level is in place to protect your profits from the previous week. It is set at the beginning of each week and remains static for the rest of the week. It is calculated as 2% of the account starting balance subtracted from the weeks starting account balance.

Here’s an example:

Start Account Balance: $100,000
2%: $2,000

Week 1

Week Starting Balance: $100,000
Weekly Loss Limit: $98,000
You cannot go below $98,000 during Week 1

Week 2

Week Starting Balance: $103,000
Weekly Loss Limit: $101,000
You cannot go below $101,000

The 2% calculation remains during the duration of the Practical Assessment. Once you start the Live Trading Account this 2% is increased to 5% after achieving 10% profit giving the trader much more latitude in the Live Account.

The Maximum Drawdown is a trailing Drawdown until reaching the Account Start balance, where it becomes static at that point. It is calculated by subtracting 4% from the High Water Mark (Your highest account balance).

 

What does this mean?

Again the Maximum Drawdown is designed to protect your profits and also our maximum exposure.

Let’s take a look at an example:

Week 1

Account Start Balance:$100,000
Maximum Drawdown: $96,000

During Week 1 you make $3,000 profit taking your Account Balance to $103,000, this now your High Water Mark and your Maximum Drawdown has increased to $99,000. You cannot go below this figure with your Equity Balance.

Week 2

Account Balance: $104,000
Maximum Drawdown: $100,000
You now have a great week and make $5,000 taking your Account Balance to $109,000. Your Maximum Drawdown has already reached the account starting balance of $100,000. It remains there from now on.
