I got a email from the Earn2Trade.
They made a rewards for becoming the funded trader.

Everyone should definitely check the website.

Yes, if you reach 5k total profit with no more than a $1250 drawdown for the Gauntlet.

Since you asked I spoke with one of the people at The Gauntlet. Here is the feedback IMHO:



There are only 2 benchmarks for funding: 1 trade trade per week, minimum; and 10% return over 2 months. If you achieve that you are guaranteed funding. They assume you are a professional trader...by this I mean that you explain your approach, your expected drawdown, instruments traded, and trading style BEFORE you begin. In this way no ones time is wasted, unlike Topstep or 1Up. They actually fund 25k in margin unlike the phony money amounts Topstep and 1Up use and they are more forgiving of drawdowns unlike the 3% or 4% drawdowns at TopStep/1Up. The key issue as a professional is that you must stay within the benchmarks that you have defined for yourself as part of your strategy, you can't just experiment trade. Like everyone they are looking for consistency and if all goes right you actually get 25k in your funding account.



To me it's a much better deal than TopStep/1Up...the guys are friendly and helpful and pro traders.



IMHO, compared to TopStep/1Up it's a better deal, cheaper to participate, and ultimately more honest than the others. There are many complaints about Topstep/1Up but I find most complaints revolve around either newbies wasting money not knowing what they are doing or pros frustrated with the artificial restrictions (which are put in place by Topstep/1Up to protect their capital from the newbies who are lucky enough to pass); so for pros I would seriously consider The Gauntlet and if you are a newbie instead of wasting time and money floundering consider paying for the earn2trade course.



I have no vested interest in promoting The Gauntlet; I don't know them, and I have never been funded by them.



Hi, was wondering how it went with them? Did you get funded?...

I have never applied for funding...I can't guarantee that I would make 1 trade per week. My strategy is a daily swing program with a holding period of a few days to a few weeks, so while I might have open positions every week but not necessarily a new trade. With my style I would be over-trading if I did that, which is obviously counter-productive. And of course I asked them about a "fake" trade, inputting a trade then selling it a few minutes later to get over the hurdle, and they would not bend on that; also it's not an "average" number you can't have 2 trades one week then zero the next and average them out to 1 per week.

While I don't agree with it, I understand their rationale in driving consistency and eliminating a lucky few trades, but as professionals I think they could see past those strategies that game the test rather easily, but it is what it is, so I think their requirement is better suited to an intraday approach.

For those in my position I would recommend Collective2 as an alternative.

Hey guys,

Some recent news from Earn2Trade to share (I am quoting their press release below):


Quoting 
We are happy to announce a partnership between Earn2Trade and Journalytix. Earn2Trade Gauntlet™ participants will now have access to Journalytix trade analytics to help them maximize the returns from their trading efforts.

The Gauntlet™ is a 60 day trader examination that leads to a funded account at Earn2Trade’s Proprietary firm partner. Traders must meet a 10% profit target without exceeding a 10% drawdown limitation in a 60 day trial and if successful go on to be given a funded trading account. The Gauntlet™ provides a flexible environment for traders by permitting trading at all times, including overnight trading, with no trailing drawdown restriction.

Journalytix is the next generation automated trade analytics and journaling tool with a built-in real- time news feed. The tools reveal patterns in trading data that help traders understand what’s working for them and what isn’t. Traders not only get up to the minute analytical information about their day in terms of both P&L and Risk, they also get a heads up in terms of both scheduled economic releases and market moving news, tailored to events that are likely to impact their trading.

This partnership is geared towards giving Earn2Trade Gauntlet™ candidates an increased probability of passing and earning a funded account. “By integrating Journalytix directly into the Gauntlet™ dashboard, our candidates will have an unprecedented level of analytics available at their fingertips, at no additional cost.” remarked Ryan Masten, Founder of Earn2Trade LLC.

This partnership will help candidates in terms of having the tools to recognize and maximize profitable trading behaviors, and also to avoid getting caught offside when the market switches from technical to news-driven. Peter Davies at Jigsaw commented “The Gauntlet™ is an amazing way for traders to disconnect themselves from the limitations of their own account balance. With this partnership, existing Journalytix users will benefit from continuity in their trading analytics as they move through the Gauntlet™ and beyond”.

To celebrate this event, Earn2Trade are offering a special 20% discount to Jigsaw/Journalytix customers. Simply click this link to learn more.

The link mentioned is here:
https://www.earn2trade.com/gauntlet?discount=jigsaw&a_pid=jigsaw

I think it sounds like a positive move for everyone. Both Earn2Trade and Jigsaw Trading (Journalytix) are site sponsors of futures io as well, and I'm glad to see them teaming up to encourage users to journal -- and by extension, improve their trading performance. As you guys know, I am a huge believer in journaling!

Mike

Some changes from Earn2Trade:


Quoting 
Dear Traders,

We’d like to start off by thanking all of you for helping make the launch of The Gauntlet Mini™
last month an immense success. We’re especially grateful to everyone who signed up and gave
us their feedback on it so we can continue improving it as we go. Going forward we’ll be making
the following trader oriented changes to The Gauntlet Mini™.

We’re removing LiveSim, traders will go directly to Helios after passing the evaluation.
Traders previously had to go through a Live Simulator phase which was a paper trading account
with the same terms and conditions as your offer, including the ability to request withdrawals
immediately. It wasn’t a second evaluation, but rather a risk management procedure for the
prop. firm. Helios decided to allow traders to skip this process for The Gauntlet Mini™ because
its rules are stricter than the original Gauntlet™ so less risk management is necessary. The way
you benefit from it is being able to request performance reviews for additional funding or
trade-able assets from them sooner.

We’re removing the daily loss limit for live accounts after the trader reaches profitability.
After getting funded you will no longer be subject to a daily loss limit once you make enough
profit for your loss limit to reach your starting balance. As an example, if you start your live
account at $25,000 and grow your balance over $25,550 your daily loss limit will be removed.

We’re raising the maximum position size and the progression ladder for micro contracts
times ten.

You will be able to trade up to ten contracts of all respective micros and it'll only count as one
contract towards the progression ladder and maximum number of positions. For example if the
progression ladder allows you 2 contracts then you can either trade up to 2 ES, 1 ES & 10 MES
or 20 MES. This change will go live after 5:00 p.m. Central Time October 1st, 2019.

Traders will no longer need to pay Helios for their data fees after getting funded if they
already have their own data feed.

If you already have your own paid data feed you can continue using it for charting after getting
funded without having to pay Helios the additional monthly $105 per exchange, however, you
will still need to execute trades through the feed they provide.

Traders will be able to keep using NinjaTrader after getting funded regardless of license
type.

Previously you were only able to keep using NinjaTrader after getting funded if you had a
license grandfathered into trading with 3rd party brokerages. Helios has now added a
Leader-Follower service that will allow you to copy your trades from NT to Helios through a
paper trading account. This means you're not interacting directly with the live market so there
could be a small delay and you may not get the same fill. Traders who choose this option are
responsible for monitoring their Helios account, since their loss limits are based on the Helios
account, not the paper trading account. There's also an additional $25 ($50 if your user is more
than 6 months old) data fee to maintain the paper trading account.

We hope that these changes will enhance your Gauntlet Mini™ experience and make
completing it even more rewarding. Please look forward to more future developments.As
always our support staff is happy to answer any related questions. We welcome any
feedback and appreciate your continued support, thank you.
