I have to say that Ryan (@earn2trade) is indeed a gentleman - and has reached out in an email to me and has addressed issue(s) to my satisfaction - I am a happy customer now - and will be staying with their service (thank you again Ryan - much appreciated)

By the way Ryan - as previously stated - I read that other companies do provide a “grace period” of up to 10 seconds to close an additional ONE contract that may have been open by mistake (it is really easy to do that on he Ninja DOM - as we work orders and market may move fast and we try to get in or out )

Maybe someone knows a way in Ninja to RESTRICT the MAX orders to only TWO - so once two orders are filled - if by mistake and additional limit order is on the bid/ask - it is REJECTED ?

Cheers - and have a splendid weekend,
S

Hi I am interested in the 50k mini gauntlet. I have one concern.

First, for position sizing will the sim account automatically block you from accidently over clipping? Years ago this was the case with topsteptrader but now I feel they deliberately allow you to overclip so you pay more for resets e.g. Max size on step 1 50k is 5 lots but they will allow you to go to 6, step 2 max size is 2 but you can clip 3 and then the whole account is bust. This is very frustrating as I have to be paranoid about my sizing all the time as going over just 1 lot busts your account, just recently I put up 1.5k over 3 consecutive positive days just to find out I accidently had 6 lots on then that account went to waste (I was spread across 3 markets so that made it harder monitor positions). In reality having an extra 1 lot on is a non event as you can easily get out quick for a small cost and should not be so harshly penalised.



Thanks

Understanding yourself is just as important as understanding markets.

Secondly, after completing the gauntlet, it says you have to do a livesim. What are the parameters for that?

Thanks

Hello!

1) By default, no it doesn't prevent it. This is because most clients want the ability to scale without having us adjust the limits. You are able to let the staff know before you start to limit you and they can do it!

2) For the regular Gauntlet™ yes but not for the Mini. There is an example offer for Livesim posted at https://www.earn2trade.com/gauntlet.

Hope that helps!

How do I contact staff? I tried support@earn2trade but got a reply that it couldn't be delivered because of maintenance. Would those limits automatically go up with my account size?

No reason you should have gotten that message - I apologize if you did! You can absolutely email support@earn2trade.com. You can also go to our website and talk with livechat. If you have them limit your account, you'll need to have them raise the limits once you qualify for the increase.
