Take our Challenges & Forge Your Wealth.

The prohibited trading strategies.

At TTF, we welcome a wide range of simulated trading practices, but we seek professional challengers who can effectively manage significant capital and mitigate risks. We prioritize individuals who approach demo simulated trading with professionalism rather than those who engage in gambling or attempt to exploit the system. Below are the practices/strategies that are not permitted.

Martingale: Martingale trading is a strategy where a trader doubles or enlarge by 50% their position size after each loss, aiming to recover all previous losses and gain a profit when a winning trade eventually occurs. This high-risk approach relies on the assumption that a winning trade will happen before capital runs out.

The martingale rule is one of those rules in the list of “Warnings”. If you reach the sum of 5 warnings (soft violations) you will reach the hard breach alert leading to the termination of your account.

Grid: Grid trading is a strategy that involves placing buy and sell orders at predetermined intervals above and below a set price, creating a grid of orders. This method aims to profit from market volatility, allowing traders to capitalize on small price movements within a specific range without predicting market direction.

The grid rule is one of those rules in the list of “Warnings”. If you reach the sum of 5 warnings (soft violations) you will reach the hard breach alert leading to the termination of your account.

Hedging/Reverse trading: Reverse trading in the same account involves executing trades that go against the current market trends within that account. This strategy includes selling when the market is rising and buying when it is falling, aiming to take advantage of market corrections and price reversals for potential profit.

The hedging rule is one of those rules in the list of “Warnings”. If you reach the sum of 5 warnings (soft violations) you will reach the hard breach alert leading to the termination of your account.

HFT bots in Master phase:

External Copy Trading: Utilizing signals, group trading, or any similar activities resulting in identical trades from other traders is prohibited.

Reverse Trading/Group Hedging: While hedging or executing reverse trades within a single account leads only to warning detection, doing so across different accounts and owners is not permitted. Group hedging, where individuals open opposing positions across one or multiple prop firms to ensure one position always wins, will result in account bans.

Account Management Services: Purchasing account management services or allowing someone else to trade on your behalf is strictly prohibited. Sharing accounts for trading purposes is also prohibited.

IP Management: Logging into your master account with a consistent IP address is required. Any variation in IP addresses may trigger our fraud detection system, potentially resulting in account management scrutiny.

EAs, Latency Arbitrage and Guaranteed Limit Order Fills on News Events are strictly prohibited.

Please note that simulated trades opened for less than 2 minutes will not contribute to your profit calculation to prevent HFT-like trading activities.

Traders found engaging in the aforementioned strategies will face the risk of losing their challenges/master accounts.
