Understanding Max Daily and Total Drawdown

Daily Drawdown

Maximum Daily Loss | 5%

In the course of one working day, the maximum daily drawdown on the account (which consists of the account’s current result of opened positions and the result of positions closed on the given day) must not exceed 5% of the initial demo balance of the account. Please note this includes simulated commissions.

Reset Time

The max daily drawdown resets every day between 4:57 PM - 5:03 PM EST. To ensure smooth functionality, we advise our traders to not execute trades in between the window of 4:57 PM - 5:03 PM EST when the drawdown is being reset. Once your last balance is pulled for the trading day, your dashboard will update with new Daily Breach Level. This is the amount your account equity must stay above in order to not be breached.

Note: We also utilize a reconciliation module that reviews breaches the following day to add an additional layer of verification for any breach activity.

Daily Funded Drawdown Rules

The following chart shows the daily drawdown loss and overall max loss by account size for the Rapid Challenge.

Max Drawdown

Maximum Total Drawdown | 8%

  • The maximum total drawdown is 8%. Therefore, the equity of the account must not fall below 92% of the initial demo account balance both for open and closed positions, including simulated commissions and simulated swaps.

Note: We also utilize a reconciliation module that reviews breaches the following day to add an additional layer of verification for any breach activity.


  • Receive an 80% payout at the end of every 14-day period (counted from the first trade after the last approved withdrawal).

  • Receive an 80% payout at the end of every week if purchased with the Weekly Payouts add-on (counted from the first trade after the last approved withdrawal).

  • If you purchased an account with a special payout promotion, that percentage will be the account's base payout.

    • i.e. If an account was purchased with a 90% promotion, the account's payout will remain at 90% for all subsequent withdrawals.


  • Any violation of the rules above will result in the termination of your TFT trading account and you will not be eligible to move forward in the program with that account.

  • Note: both the daily drawdown and max drawdown breach on an account include simulated commissions, simulated swap fees and simulated dividends (only on ThinkMarkets) as well.

  • All ThinkMarkets & Eightcap accounts have been transitioned to DXtrade. Customers can access their DXTrade credentials via the dashboard. If you have any concerns or issues arising from this transition, please reach out to our team for assistance in resolving them.

Our outsourced system, on a regular cadence, gathers the required tick data from our Trading Platform provider to calculate drawdown violations. Real-time equity tracking is not technologically feasible and thus what is displayed on the dashboard is provided 'as-is' and solely for informational purposes. Therefore, we deploy a proprietary reconciliation system intended to identify discrepancies in account drawdown calculations. This reconciliation system runs each day, using the prior periods data, to identify drawdown violations. Based on reconciliation system results, TFT may in its sole discretion undertake and execute the rejection of payouts if the drawdown violation occurred prior to a payout request, termination of funded or challenge accounts identified to have violated their drawdown in a prior period, and termination of funded or challenge accounts that were upgraded, merged, or scaled from a funded or challenge account that violated their drawdown parameters. TFT exercises its right to take and implement without prior notice one or more of the firm actions referenced above, in accordance with our customer agreement and Terms of Use.
