Max Drawdown is trailing on its Highest Balance, it signifies that whenever your Current Balance (which includes closed profits and losses) reaches a new peak, your Max Drawdown Limit will adjust accordingly.
Imagine John is participating in a Challenge that begins with a $100,000 starting balance, and the Max Drawdown is set at 10%, trailing on the Highest Balance. This means his initial Max Drawdown limit is $90,000.
On the third day of his Challenge, John’s balance (including closed profits and losses) reaches a peak of $102,000. Consequently, his new Max Drawdown limit is now set at $92,000.
If at any point in the future, John achieves a new all-time high in his balance, let’s say $104,000, the Max Drawdown limit will once again trail upwards, this time reaching $94,000.
You can implement this rule by closely monitoring your account balance throughout the trading day. It’s crucial to adjust position sizes and trading strategies to stay within the specified limits.

Margin is the amount of money that you need to open/keep a contract.
Theorically margin is defined by the exchange, but since they are high, usually brokers have two different type of margin:
At the moment we have just one margin that you can define.
It works on the following way:

When you buy or sell a futures contract, you’re not required to pay the full value of the contract upfront. Instead, the broker requires you to deposit an initial margin, a fraction of the total contract value, to open the position. This initial margin acts as collateral to cover any losses that might occur while holding the position.
Thus, leverage in futures trading is created by allowing you to control a large amount of the underlying asset or financial instruments with a relatively small investment (the margin). This structure amplifies the potential for both profit and loss, as price movements in the underlying asset have a magnified effect on your return, either positively or negatively.
The KYC (Know Your Customer) process is a set of procedures designed to verify the identity, authenticity, and suitability of individuals engaging in financial transactions or services. In the context of TFS Funding, the KYC process involves the following steps:
Document Verification: Traders are required to submit relevant documents, such as identification cards, passports, or other government-issued IDs. These documents are reviewed to ensure accuracy and legitimacy.
Selfie Confirmation: As part of the KYC process, traders need to confirm their identity by submitting a selfie. This helps ensure that the person submitting the documents is the same person engaging in the trading activities.
Address Validation: Traders need to provide proof of their address, which can include utility bills or official correspondence. This step is crucial for confirming the trader’s residential information.

Yes, you have the flexibility to hold trades during news events but not over the weekend in the futures evaluation with TFS Funding. Unlike some traditional markets, the futures market allows for continuous trading, including during news releases.
This means you can keep your positions open during major economic announcements or events. However, it’s important to note that trading during such periods can involve increased volatility and potential price gaps. Traders should exercise caution and consider the impact of news events on their open positions.
It’s advisable to stay informed about upcoming economic events and news releases, as these can significantly influence market dynamics. Risk management strategies should be applied to mitigate potential risks associated with holding positions during volatile periods. Always be aware of the specific rules and guidelines outlined by TFS Funding to ensure compliance with their evaluation requirements.
The specific capital amount you will manage depends on the evaluation program you choose and successfully complete.
We offer different evaluation levels with varying capital sizes.
Keep in mind that successful completion of evaluation objectives and demonstrating consistent profitability are key factors in determining the capital size you may manage.
We prioritize responsible trading over excessive profit goals, and as such, we’ve implemented risk limit rules instead of a profit target on your Funded account. These rules include a 2% Daily Loss Limit and a Maximum Loss Limit set at 4% of your initial balance.
Daily Loss Limit: The Maximum Daily Loss is the permissible daily loss, calculated as a percentage of the higher value between equity and balance. It’s based on the daily equity, derived from the floating Profit and Loss (PnL) and closed positions, ensuring it doesn’t exceed the set limit. This limit resets daily at 00:00 CE(S)T/server.
Maximum Loss Limit: This rule ensures your equity or balance doesn’t fall below 4% of the initial account size.
Hold Trades During News & Over the Weekend: You have the flexibility to keep trades open during news events on the Funded account.
If any deductions lead to breaching the daily loss limit or maximum loss limit, the trader is accountable for the violation.
Keep in mind: YOUR IDEAS, OUR RISK. To secure funding and thrive as a trader, genuine skills and an authentic trading approach are indispensable. There’s no shortcut or workaround – you cannot cheat your way in. Success comes from a commitment to mastering the craft.
