Just for illustration - this shows the stupidity of the trailing drawdown rule Apex and LeeLoo use:

Let's say you're up $15K after 10 days of consistent and successful trading. Let's say your win...

Are you dense?

The trailing drawdown does NOT stop trailing with a simulated account. This only applies to live accounts.

The same thing happened with phantomtrader as explained here:...

No worries.

I had 3 days left of the evaluation, so I could easily have accepted that loss and not doubled down on that last trade. I think I just became extra careless after having learned that...

Thanks for the good words, Bob.

Regarding change in method - my main method up until now have not been scalping, but attempting to capture larger swings intraday. This means I can at times...

For transparency - I blew my evaluation account with Apex on Tuesday.

I actually hit my target on Tuesday with $9500 in my account after 7 trading days. At that point I had zero losing days and...

They launched one month ago.

If you reviewed the pay-out structure I wrote about earlier in the thread the answer is NO.

Considering the pay-out structure I'd say it's very risky to invest...

As many as account as you want = more subscription fees. They said this to me as well. No thanks.

To be honest, the more I've looked into and considered these programs it's very clear to me that...

I hope and think you'll get paid. They just don't seem to make it easy for traders.

The reason I brought it up is because most of my trades with this trading style due to the trailing drawdown are...

I understand that.

I'm not yet funded with Apex, but made 7K of the total 9K required this week already, so I assume I should be by next week unless I mess something up.

I will probably just...

I don't mind once per month. That's understandable.

But 5 months to pay out $10K and 6 months to pay out the excess above $10K is not exactly a positive in my book.

I talked to support and they confirmed my suspicions.

If I make $10K in October, I won't be eligible for the first payout of $2750 until end of November at best (need to have 25 trading days...

That wouldn't be a surprise. The rules are very similar.

But if I understood you correctly in the other thread you was fairly happy with LeeLoo? They have the same payout structure?

Okay, so I'm progressing nicely one this Combine and thinking all is good, but now I read the pay-out rules which are quite terrible if I understand them correctly.

They say that the first $10K...

From what I've understood 'Sim live' is simply a simulated account where your orders do not go to the market, but you're still paid on your simulator performance.

'Copy trade' is also still a...

I don't know about Apex, but many of these companies don't have you trading a live account initially even after you're "funded". Here's what LeeLoo says:
