SURGETRADER EVALUTION PROCESS
Unlike many other prop firms, Surgetrader evaluation process is different. They call it Surgetrader audition instead of challenge or verification. You only have to pass the trading audition to get real funding. What sets them apart from other proprietary trading firm is that they have no limits on instruments, no minimum trading days, no 30-day mandatory trading period. This basically means you can take your time without worrying or having pressure to finish the audition on time.
After completing step 1, you will progress to step 2 where you become a funded trader depending on the audition you have chosen. You will get a profit share of 75% where the remainder is kept by surgetrader themselves.
If you want to try their service for free trial, you can. However, only upon on request though. Their fee is just one time. No monthly commitment. No hidden fees. Other than that check the fee below.
Their starter fund is from $25k to $100k for seasoned. Profit share is 75% and profit target is 10%. This is great given that there is no mandatory trading period to reach the target. This is good specially when you don’t know what the market is doing and want to trade after the dust settles. The audition fee starts from $200 to $700. This fee should not break your bank. But don’t if that’s the only amount you have left.
Now, the above audition is more gear towards serious traders. For a fee of $1.7k, you will get a fund of $250k to trade with. And for Master or more serious trader, fee of $6.5k gives you a capital of $1M fund. Again profit target remains the same at 10% for each auditions and a daily loss limit of 4%. Do keep in mind of max trailing drawdown is 5%.
