We shall see, i really do expect a high offer, my performance was good enough.

Yes, I expect you would receive a very solid offer. Now going forward, how are you feeling with the next step... basically trading for live $$ as I understand. Any challenges that might be coming up?

Sorry for the delayed reply guys, i have been quite busy and have had some medical issues the last few day's, nothing to major but painfull.

I have been in contact with E2T and since my performance was so good they offered me to skip the live sim and go straight to the live account with Helios.

However i prefered to go with E2T first since the first 5K in profit this way does not get mentioned on the K1 that i will be receiving with Helios so i have some more time to set things up.

Ryan is currently working on a solution that works for both of us so i will keep you guys updated.

The offer is 25K with 10% DD. I did expect a higher offer (higher draw down). So slightly disappointed there but it will have to do.

What is Live SIM. If you passed your E2T you will be on live sim instead of a funded account?

If you pass the Gauntlet you will receive an offer and trade in a live sim account, it is a demo account just as the Gauntlet but you can withdraw the profit. Basically E2T is paying you your profit if you make any, before you go to Helios.

I guess they introduced this because there where to many traders blowing up at Helios after passing the Gauntlet.

Smart if you think about it. Costs them less real money.

Congrats! Got the max account size though, right? I agree the drawdown could be a little better. You can renegotiate that as time goes on.

Yes, the account size is the maximum.
My draw down during the Gauntlet was only 3,89%, probably one of the reasons why my draw down offer isn't higher
