T4TCapital Trading Rules

The Practical Assessment

Trader Funding

PROVE You Can Trade

Whether you have taken one of our trading courses or you are participating in the T4TCapital Funded Trader Program, you will need to prove to yourself and to us that you can safely and profitably trade our T4TCapital Live Funded Accounts. You do this by taking the Practical Assessment.

The Practical Assessment

The Practical Assessment is a simulation of the live trading account. It has the same rules and limits, the same liquidity provider as the Live Trading Account but is in a safe trading environment where if you make mistakes you are not losing real cash.

So how do you pass the Practical Assessment and move on to the Live Trading Account?

Profit Target / Win Rate / Best Day Profit

0 %
Profit Target
0 %
Win Rate ≥45%

Best Day <40% of total profits

Rules & Limits of the Trading Accounts

The rules and limits are the same as the live trading account.

The Trading Rules

Breach of these rules will simply close your trade and you will be notified by email.

Maximum Position Risk on any one trade must not exceed 2% of your account balance & Total Open Risk at any one time must not exceed 3%.

Before a trader opens any position, they will have 3% of risk available. If the Maximum Loss Limit is within 3% then they will only have that smaller limit available.

Single Position Risk – If a trader opens a position that exceeds 2% risk of the account balance then the trade will be closed out immediately, and the trader is notified of the soft breach. They can continue to trade.

Total Open Risk – If the total open risk is above 3% it closes out the most recent position opened immediately, and the trader is notified of the soft breach. They can continue to trade.

Updating Available Risk – If a trader has 2 trades open with risk totally 3% and the positions are in profit, if they raise their stop loss orders to breakeven on both trades then they get 3% of additional ‘Available Risk’ to trade with.

Every time you open a position or place a pending order in the market it must have a valid stop loss attached to it!

Why pending orders? Because the entry order could be triggered and with no stop loss attached that could result in the entire account being lost.

You are not permitted to hold positions over the weekend. All positions need to be closed out no later than Friday 7.00pm GMT/UTC.

If you have an open position over the weekend you will require a reset to continue to be eligible for funding.

You are permitted to trade at all other times except if T4T Management halts all trading due to ‘unforeseen highly volatility international events’. In this case, T4T management will notify you directly about the trading halt.

Your largest profit day must be below 40% of your total profits made. 

We want profitable traders with consistent risk management, not one hit wonders that make a lot of money on one day and lose every other day. If there’s no plan going up then there’s definitely no plan going down!

The Account Limits

Breach of the limits will result in your account being closed and to continue you will need to reset your account.

The Maximum Drawdown is a trailing Drawdown until reaching the Account Start balance, where it becomes static at that point. It is calculated by subtracting 5% from the High Water Mark (Your highest account balance).

What does this mean?

Again the Maximum Drawdown is designed to protect your profits and also our maximum exposure.

Let’s take a look at an example:

Week 1

Account Start Balance:$100,000
Maximum Drawdown: $95,000

During Week 1 you make $3,000 profit taking your Account Balance to $103,000, this now your High Water Mark and your Maximum Drawdown has increased to $98,000. You cannot go below this figure with your Equity Balance.

Week 2

Account Balance: $105,000
Maximum Drawdown: $100,000
You now have a great week and make $5,000 taking your Account Balance to $110,000. Your Maximum Drawdown has already reached the account starting balance of $100,000. It remains there from now on.

Frequently Asked Questions for

 The Trading Demo Practical Assessment

No. This goes against everything we promote, we want long term consistent traders . We do not want to encourage you to over trade and over leverage. Take your time we’ve removed the pressure.

Unlimited Time Limit (extend every 6 Months)

At the end of 6 months, if you have not hit the profit target your account will be disabled or you can choose to extend the time limit by an additional 6 months by paying the ‘extension fee’.

Extension Fee Option

If your account is in profit, but you’re not quite there yet then you will have the option to ‘extend’ the time limit by another 6 months by paying the ‘extension fee’ ($100). Your current ‘account balance’ will remain in the account to give you the best opportunity to pass the Assessment.

If You’re Account is in Drawdown

If your account is in drawdown and you do not want to extend the time limit, then you can simply let the time limit expire and your account will be disabled. If you want to try again you can by resetting your recent disabled account by paying the ‘reset fee’. You will be issued a new account with a fresh 6 month time limit.


If you want to extend the time limit on your account simply contact our team and they will arrange the extension once you’ve paid the ‘extension fee’ of $100.
