What are Prohibited Trading Practices?

+

  • Exploit errors or latency in the pricing and/or platform(s) provided by the Broker
  • Utilize non-public and/or insider information
  • Front-run trades placed elsewhere
  • Trade in any way that jeopardizes the relationship GoatFundedTrader has with a broker or may result in the cancelling of trades
  • Trade in any way that creates regulatory issues for the Broker
  • All-0r-Nothing Trading, where you can lose the account in one trade
  • Any trading style that we deem too risky will be breached and refunded in full
  • We strictly prohibit hedging positions within the same trading account, between accounts owned by the same traders, and between accounts owned by different traders. Hedging is defined as the act of opening two opposite positions on the same asset, regardless of differences in lot size or calculated risk. This policy is in place to ensure fair and transparent trading practices within our community and to uphold the integrity of our trading environment. Hedging can lead to confusion in risk management and may create unfair advantages or disadvantages for traders.

  • Utilize any third-party strategy, Expert Advisor, off-the-shelf strategy or one marketed to pass assessment accounts will lead to a breach of your account or payout. We may require to prove that your Expert advisor is your own by presenting the code for any doubts we have, at our own discretion
  • Utilize one strategy to pass an assessment and then utilizing a different strategy in a simulated funded account, refers only to the use of EA in assessment and manual trading in simulated Funded stage and vice versa, as determined by GoatFundedTrader in its sole discretion

  • It is essential to successfully complete each challenge individually. Importantly, you cannot duplicate trades (whether executed manually or via EA) from a master account to an evaluation account or from one evaluation account to another. This applies to both the trades and trade ideas. After successfully passing the evaluation process, you have the flexibility to either combine the Master/Funded accounts into a single account or keep them separate, based on your personal preference.

  • If Goat Funded Trader detects that your trading constitutes Prohibited Trading Practices, your participation in the program will be terminated and may include forfeiture of any fees paid to Goat Funded Trader. Additionally, and before you shall receive a simulated funded account, your trading activity under these Terms and Conditions shall be reviewed by Goat Funded Trader to determine whether such trading activity constitutes Prohibited Trading. In the case of Prohibited Trading, you shall not receive a simulated funded account or, if trading already trading in a simulated funded account, we may close that account, in which case you will forfeit any profits therein.

  • Gambling: You cannot gamble your way through a challenge phase. GFT defines gambling as:
    -Taking more than 50% of your trades in under a one-minute hold time
    -Opening five positions in a loosing trade, encompassing both the entry and subsequent positions
    -Betting one direction and holding until you pass/fail

  • Abuse of the Simulated Environment
    Clear abuse of the simulated environment is characterized by continuously executing large-volume trades without a clear or logical trading strategy. This behaviour disregards fundamental market analysis and risk management practices and does not provide us with viable trading data. Accounts engaging in consistent, high volume trades without a coherent strategy may be flagged for review. This allows us to assess and take appropriate action to maintain a fair trading environment consistent with our mission of obtaining credible trading data. Accounts identified to be consistently executing large-volume trades without a clear strategy may face warnings, temporary limitations on trading activities, or in severe cases, suspension, or termination to uphold the platform's trading policies.

How does the Leverage Reduction Policy work?

+

At Goat Funded Trader, we are committed to fostering responsible trading practices among our community of traders. As part of our ongoing efforts to maintain a secure and sustainable trading environment, we have implemented a Leverage Reduction Policy to mitigate excessive risk-taking behaviors.

1. Evaluation and Discretion:

We continually monitor the trading activities of our traders, meticulously reviewing each trade to ensure adherence to our risk management guidelines. If we identify a trader engaging in exceptionally risky trading patterns, characterized by consistent and substantial losses or exposure to significant potential losses, we reserve the right to reduce their leverage.

2. Criteria for Leverage Reduction:

The decision to reduce a trader's leverage is at the discretion of our experienced risk management team, comprised of seasoned traders with extensive market knowledge. This decision may be made independently of a trader reaching their maximum daily drawdown, as our primary concern is to safeguard both the trader's capital and the overall stability of our platform.

3. Duration and Restoration of Leverage:

Traders who experience a leverage reduction will have the opportunity to restore their initial leverage after a period of 60 days, provided they demonstrate a more prudent approach to risk management during this time.

4. Leverage Reduction Levels:

Traders with an initial leverage of 1:100 (CLASSIC 2 steps and NO TIME LIMIT 2 steps challenges) will be restricted to a maximum leverage of 1:30.

Traders with an initial leverage of 1:50 (GOAT challenge) will be restricted to a maximum leverage of 1:20.

Traders with an initial leverage of 1:30 (1 STEP challenge) will be restricted to a maximum leverage of 1:10.

5. Risk Assessment:

The determination of a trader's trading approach as "too risky" is based on a comparison of their overall risk exposure with the average risk profile of our extensive trader base.

6. Prevention of Reckless Trading:

It is imperative to acknowledge that some traders may attempt to exploit the demo and challenge environments to pursue unrealistic profits that are unsustainable in the long term. The Leverage Reduction Policy serves as a proactive measure to prevent such reckless trading behavior and protect traders from potential account breaches.

7. Application of Leverage Reduction:

The Leverage Reduction Policy may be applied either during the funded stage of trading or between phases of the evaluation process. Traders found to be trading recklessly during Phase 1 or Phase 2 may still progress to the next phase but with the imposed leverage reduction.

8. Breach of Account and Termination:

In cases where a trader persistently exhibits risky trading behavior even after the leverage reduction, resulting in the depletion of their entire margin and potential margin calls, Goat Funded Trader reserves the right to breach their account and terminate our agreement. However, it is important to reiterate that traders who demonstrate a shift towards a more conservative risk approach will have the opportunity to regain their initial leverage. Our ultimate goal is to cultivate a community of skilled traders who understand the inherent risks of the market and refrain from pursuing unrealistic and unsustainable gains through an "all or nothing" approach.

We believe that the implementation of this Leverage Reduction Policy reinforces our commitment to maintaining a secure and supportive trading ecosystem for all our traders. By adhering to responsible trading practices, we strive to empower our community to achieve sustainable success in the financial markets.

How is account inactivity calculated?

+

If your account is inactive for 45 calendar days, it will be breached, both on Evaluation and simulated Funded Accounts. However, If you don't log into your account for 30 days, it will be deleted automatically on the side of Match-Trade which will resume to a hard breach.

What is a GoatFundedTrader simulated funded account?

+

Upon successfully passing the evaluations and receiving their certificate, contractors will be granted new credentials to access a simulated Funded Account (Simulation) that is funded with virtual funds. It's essential to note that this simulated Funded account is entirely simulated and mimics real market data and clearing from liquidity providers. The trading data is managed and sent to a partnered proprietary trading firm based on strategies that are managed within our risk management team. The trading firm copies trades at their own discretion, utilizing proprietary risk management techniques and aggregated orders. We never issue real funds, and members are paying a fee for an educational trading evaluation with an opportunity for their strategies to be copied and receive compensation as an independent contractor. It's important to clarify that we are not a broker.

What instruments can you trade with us?

+

FX pairs and CFD indices, metals, commodities, equities and cryptocurrencies.

Is hedging allowed?

+

We strictly prohibit hedging positions within the same trading account, between accounts owned by the same traders, and between accounts owned by different traders. Hedging is defined as the act of opening two opposite positions on the same asset, regardless of differences in lot size or calculated risk.

This policy is in place to ensure fair and transparent trading practices within our community and to uphold the integrity of our trading environment. Hedging can lead to confusion in risk management and may create unfair advantages or disadvantages for traders.

What are the Restricted News Events for Hedging?

+

You can find a full list of upcoming news events at www.forexfactory.com. We specifically restrict Hedge trading around high impact events, as indicated by the red impact icon, and these events are considered Restricted News Events.

Who is allowed to trade my account besides me?

+

All trading accounts linked to our GoatFundedTrader challenges must be operated solely by the account owner and must not be modified once a phase has been completed.

Kindly note that sharing login information with other traders is strictly prohibited. Therefore, we strongly discourage accessing any trading account through VPN or VPS to ensure accurate data tracking within our internal systems.

The utilization of any services related to account management, "pass your challenge," or copy trading is strictly forbidden. Any engagement in such activities will result in the rejection of funded accounts and a permanent ban from our services.

Any violations of the aforementioned guidelines, as detected by our system, will lead to account breaches and a permanent ban from accessing our services.

We maintain a maximum Overall Drawdown of 10%.
The maximum overall drawdown is calculated using the starting balance of your evaluation or simulated funded account size.
Example: If your account size balance was $100,000, your account would violate the maximum overall drawdown limit if your equity reached $90,000.
This 10% maximum overall drawdown rule remains the same throughout the evaluation process and in simulated funded accounts.

This 8% maximum overall drawdown rule remains the same throughout the evaluation process and in simulated funded accounts.
This 8% does not change. In this example if you have gained $5,000 in profit on the $100,000 account, your overall drawdown limit would still be set at $92,000. This rule applies for evaluation and simulated funded accounts.

How does the Discount Codes work, and what benefits do participants receive?

+

Explanation:

Discount Code "SPLIT": The Discount Code Program provides an enticing incentive for participants. Upon achieving a 5% profit on their first payout, traders qualify for a 13% profit split from their challenge phase profits. This benefit is coupled with a 100% refund fee. It's important to note that this program applies specifically to NoTimeLimit and Classic Challenges.

Example:

For instance, if a trader begins with a $100,000 balance, attains an $8,000 profit in Phase 1, and an additional $5,000 in Phase 2, they become eligible for a funded account. Upon receiving the first payout from GFT through a classic or No Time challenge, they receive a 100% refund fee. If the trader achieves a 5% profit in the first payout, they are entitled to a 13% profit share based on the combined Phase 1 and 2 targets. In this example, the profit share amounts to $13,000. This enables them to request their payout on demand (subject to normal rules), in addition to receiving the 100% initial fee refund and the challenge split.

How does the Scaling plan work? 

+

The Scaling plan is available since January 1st, 2024 for every clients. Please note that we have a section designed for Scaling plan on the top bar of the website where everything is explained. Note that this works only from January 1st, 2024, all the payouts made before can't be considered for the scaling plan. 

How are withdrawal/payout requests processed?

+

Withdrawal requests can be initiated from your dashboard and will be processed within 48 to 72 business hours. Payout requests require a minimum withdrawal amount of $100.

Please note that we process withdrawal via Rise. Your funds will be deposited into your Rise account, allowing you to withdraw the money using your preferred method—either crypto or Wire transfer.

Ensure that the name associated with your GFT clients account matches the name associated with your Rise account when making a payout request. 

Also, at Goat Funded Trader, we have implemented a policy regarding the initial payout limit for traders. Upon the first payout request, any trader is allowed to withdraw up to $10,000.

The reason for this limitation is to acknowledge that often, the time elapsed from the beginning of a trading challenge to the payout request may not be sufficient to thoroughly evaluate a trader's performance, risk approach, and trading strategy. By initially limiting the payout amount, we aim to provide traders with ample time to demonstrate their capabilities and to allow for a comprehensive assessment of their trading activities.

It is important to note that this policy only pertains to the first payout request. Subsequent payout requests will not be subject to this limitation, and traders will be allowed to withdraw any amount from their account. However, any profits exceeding the $10,000 limit at the time of the first payout request will be deducted from the account balance.

Furthermore, this limit is not applied to the payout on demand option. Traders are allowed to request any amount if they choose to take advantage of our payout on demand option.

We believe that this policy fosters a fair and equitable trading environment, ensuring that all traders have the opportunity to showcase their skills and receive the rewards they deserve.

If you have any questions or require further clarification regarding this policy, please do not hesitate to reach out to our support team. We are committed to providing transparent and efficient service to all our traders.

Is there a refund for the account purchase fee?

+

Yes, you will be eligible for a 120% refund on your third payout.

How can I be eligible for the 120% fee back?

+

You qualify for a 120% fee back by successfully reaching your third payout while meeting all challenge requirements and profit targets in your initial attempt. Clients who achieve challenge requirements but not the profit target and receive a free retry are excluded from this 120% fee back on third payout as they have already benefited from the bonus offer.

How is the profit split on all simulated funded account?

+

For all Two Steps evaluations, you can receive 40% of your profit after 24 hours, (Payout On Demand). If you want to receive 80% profit split at the first payout, you need to wait 30 days. Then you will receive 85% at the second payout, 90% at the third payout and 95% just in some cases of traders profitability reviewed by GoatFundedTrader Team (go to the specific FAQ).
Note that it is also possible to start with a 90% profit split by selecting the add-on while purchasing your challenge, the 90% profit split is not applicable for Payout On Demand.

For instance, if you have bought 2x8k, 1x15k, and 1x25k challenges, you will receive a 50% discount on the 8k challenges.If two different sizes have been purchased an equal number of times, you will receive the free challenge in the smallest size.

Benefit 2: Free Challenge

When you purchase a total of 9 challenges with us, you earn a free challenge as your 10th reward. This free challenge will work similarly to the 50% discount benefit. The size of the free challenge will be determined by the size of the challenge that you have purchased the most. If two different sizes have been purchased an equal number of times, you will receive the free challenge in the smallest size.

It is important to note that this is only valid for purchases made after the September 14th 2023. To claim the benefit, you need to contact the live chat at your fourth and ninth purchase. This is not automatically done, we are doing it case by case.
