You probably posted this in the wrong forum ... Commodities Trading isn't the busiest forum here. Maybe @Big Mike can move it.

I also received the email from another website (one where trolling and disparaging remarks almost seem to be encouraged). To pass you have to make a 10% profit in 60 Calendar days. That's an annualized profit of about 78%. I would assume that anybody who could make 78% annually consistently wouldn't need this!

While slighly different than @xplorer's recent "Definition of a prop firm" thread, I wonder whether the point of this challenge is to find people who can pass or make as many $349 fees as possible.

I've seen there stuff on Facebook adds and anyone who is asking you to post "1" if your interested in the program is fake!!

I haven't used them but from looking at there site for all of 5 minutes they look to be selling a dream like everyone else.

1) Well it is a futures program and this is a futures trading forum.

2) Despite the return expectations it seemed an improvement compared to TopStep or OneUp. That is the information I was looking for.

3) It's not the 10% return that's important it's the Sharpe ratio or drawdown to returns, since with appropriate capital you can always leverage a consistent program for a higher return.

I'm reaching out to them directly, but naturally I wanted an independent opinion.

thanks anyway

Agreed but there's a lot more ES traders here and they won't be looking in here. Wasn't trying to be critical.

I read the email and clicked delete. The email doesn't mention any risk controls in anyway so wasn't aware of that. Of course risk/reward is far more important.

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.

I haven't decided yet....I have other considerations to take into account, but if I was to do it I would pick Gauntlet over the others.
