What account size are you trading? I trade the $50K.

I trade the 250k account. So I could go up to 25, but is too risky.

As i understood your orders are not really going to the exchange but instead your orders get copied to the funding partners live account. They also can decide to not route your orders to their live account whenever they want, however you will be able to withdraw any profits made, even if the orders were not routed to the live account since they do that at their own discretion.

How's your account going? Are you still happy with OneUp?

So far I am happy, no issues here.

I made a test withdrawal of $1,500 without any issue. Withdrawal got approved and I received the money the next day.

However this was just a test and I will continue building up the account until $25k profits, to have a buffer. Only then I will trade bigger contract sizes that 5 and take some more riskier trades. For now itís building up slow and steady.

@Meliora

Quick question - if you don't withdraw, then the trailing drawdown doesn't actually trail the account value? I mean, if you are say +25k in the green, you could have a loss of, say, -20k and you'd still be fine with privileges on the account? That's what I understood from your message, but didn't know it worked that way, so I just wanted to confirm I got it right.

Thanks!

Correct. Trailing drawdown stops trailing at initial balance (250k in my case).

Hello,

This applies only to funded, during the combine you can trade news:
1) You can trade at some news and some news not.
For example: FOMC Meeting Minutes you canít trade Equity Indexes like ES from 1 Minute before to 1 minute after. But you can trade other instruments during that times.

2) the drawdown is calculated live, including open positions. I strongly recommend: trade the account up slowly, build up a buffer that you donít withdraw -> issue with drawdown basically eliminated, if you donít mess up badly. But you should have your own rules in place to prevent that.
