Trading guidelines

Here is a list of account sizes Audacity Capital funds for their traders and the rules each trader must follow.

First Stage Second Stage Third Stage Fourth Stage Fifth Stage Sixth Stage
Account Size
$15,000 $30,000 $60,000 $120,000 $240,000 $480,000

Account Size

Every trader that joins our Funded Trader Program starts with an initial account size of $15,000. Every time the trader hits the 10% profit target, we will double the account size up to $480,000 which is the maximum capital any trader can receive.

Lot Size
0.5 1 2 4 8 16

Lot Size

Orders at stage one are capped at a maximum of 0.5 lots, meaning that’s the most exposure you can accumulate at any one time. For instance, you can have either one position worth 0.5 OR five different positions of 0.1. Spreading risk is up to you, and when your account is doubled, so is your risk allowance.

For example, on $30,000, your maximum lot size is 1, and on $60,000, it’s 2 lots. The total drawdown limit is 10%, which is highly unlikely to happen, but you aren’t liable for losses if it does. As such, you won’t owe Audacity Capital any money.

Drawdown
10% 10% 10% 10% 10% 10%

Drawdown

The 10% drawdown is absolute and not trailing and as a firm we relentlessly focus on developing long-term relationships with our traders. That’s achieved by providing you with the environment to perform and prosper.

*The fees are not for us to make a profit, they are just to cover expenses just as data, technology and administration. Like we’re sharing the profit with you 50-50, we’re expecting traders to share some of our expenses with us. We’re trying to build a long-term relationship with our traders, so the monthly platform fee remain the same even if you’re managing a $480 000 account.

I was looking to get funded and did my research into prop trading firms. I chose Audacity Capital because they provided real money straight away, and I was right to choose them because I was able to hit my target and withdraw my profits in a few months.
Marcin — Poland
There are many advantages that come with working with Audacity. One that comes to mind immediately is the fact that I am much more responsible with the funds that I am managing. Because I know that the funds don’t belong to me and they belong to Audacity and I want to give the best performance possible.
Megiliano — Greece
Trading on a funded account is different from trading on a personal account. I had to adapt my strategy and disconnect my emotions because the conditions are different.
Monir — India
Everything is great. I really like how tight the spreads are on the platform and the program really teaches you how to control your risk.
Amaru — United States
I was looking for a prop firm that could give me 1 to 1 mentoring, where they have a trading floor I can visit. The biggest benefit the Hidden Talents Program offers is that I can talk to my mentor all the time.
Jakob — Germany
I already had a strategy and a proper trading plan when I got into Audacity Capital and pretty much I knew what I was doing for the last 6 months. I wanted to be ready before getting any funding and I stuck to my strategy all year round while adapting to the current market trends.

  • Can demonstrate consistency by following a trading plan or strategy.

 

Our Funded Trader Program is designed for experienced traders that already have a proven, profitable strategy in the market. That being said, not all funded trader programs are the same and are suitable for you. This is because all prop firms have a different set of rules that might not match your needs and goals. As a firm that values honesty and trust, we have laid out our rules and recommend that you look at these factors to decide if this program is best for you

Things to consider when choosing an FX Prop Trading Firm

  • It is crucial to look at the legitimacy of a prop trading firm when choosing a long term funding partner. Factors that can help determine a firm’s reputation are reviews, press features, awards, etc. Platforms such as Trustpilot and YouTube showcase a firm’s value from the opinion of people using the services of the firm.

  • Trading accounts may come with restrictions. Reading through the account’s rules and trading guidelines will help determine whether they align with your strategies. We advise that you contact a support consultant to confirm. Remember to consider a firm’s objectives when looking at their trading conditions.

  • It is essential to look at the program and the firm’s expectations. Does it align with your goals? Every firm is different.

  • Some Prop firms have a growth plan that allows funded traders to multiply their funds and enjoy increased profits.

  • Consider if there are any hidden costs. You can compare the fees with their restrictions to decide whether it is worth trading with the firm.

Why use a Funded Trader account to trade?

  • As an exclusive prop firm, we provide our traders with up to half a million US Dollars of trading capital and use real money from day one. We also offer a fast-scaling plan by doubling the size of the trading account once the trader hits the 10% target. We want to give you a real chance to demonstrate your ability.

  • Our reputation comes from valuing trust and fairness. We split the profits 50/50 to promote financial satisfaction and secure your knowledge that we are truly invested in your success.

  • We have developed a community app that can be downloaded from google play or apple store to bring like-minded professionals together. This means you can interact and benefit from market analysis and new strategies. We also use the app to announce events and promotions.

  • We believe in a fair process and meaningful trading, you will have the flexibility to make money anywhere in the world at any given time. We do not limit our traders to minimum trading days or deadlines and we use an institutional liquidity provider where you can benefit from tight spreads and no fees on commissions or swaps.

  • We use a liquidity provider that allows us to give our traders access to a deep liquidity in the market with fast executions and tight spreads. Our monthly subscription covers the benefit of not having to pay commissions or swaps.
