Am I Trading Real Money?

Engaging in Trading Using Simulated Funds

Updated over a week ago

About Virtual Funds

  • After a client becomes a Simulated Funded Trader, he/she will be provided with a demo account with simulated funds.

  • The Funded Trader challenge and funded accounts are not live trading accounts, they are fully simulated accounts utilizing real market quotes from liquidity providers. Therefore no real money is ever traded as no orders are ever executed in live markets, they are simulated orders in a simulated environment.

  • For the avoidance of any confusion, please keep in mind that a Simulated Funded and Challenge Account is a fully simulated account with real market quotes provided from trading platform providers who simulate the live market via aggregating order books from liquidity providers. The trading data is sent off to a partnered proprietary trading firm where trades are copied at their own discretion and proprietary trading strategies are developed using the data.

Disclaimer: Hypothetical or simulated performance results have certain limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, because the trades have not actually been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs, in general, are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown throughout The Funded Trader's Website and Knowledge Center.
