Rules

We have designed the trading rules for our accounts with the aim of encouraging consistent and profitable long-term trading. These rules must be followed at all times in both the Challenge accounts and subsequent Hantec Trader accounts. So long as the rules are followed, you can use whatever strategy you feel will bring you the best results.

A Hard Breach means that you violated either the Maximum Daily Loss or Maximum Total Loss rule. In the event you have a Hard Breach, you will fail the Challenge or have your Hantec Trader account closed.

A Soft Breach is any rule which, if broken, would close the trade(s) that are in breach. However, your Challenge is not stopped. You can continue trying to reach your profit target.

The Enhanced Challenge has no time limits.

There are no Minimum Trading Days, you could pass on the first day you get your account!

Maximum Daily Loss is 5% for the Enhanced Challenge and is calculated based on the previous day’s end of day (00:00 GMT+3) balance.

Example: If your prior day’s end of day balance was $100,000 you would Hard Breach the Maximum Daily Loss of 5% if your equity the next day fell to below $95,000.
Your account equity cannot decrease more than 10% of the initial account balance otherwise this is considered a Hard Breach. The Maximum Total Loss value is static and does not change as equity grows.
This is the percentage of the account balance needed in profit to pass this trading objective. For Stage 1, a profit of 10% is required to progress. For Stage 2, a profit of 5% is required. Profit is calculated as the sum of all closed positions from your trading account. Additionally there must not be any remaining open positions.
We allow the use of EAs when trading your account so long as they do not perform any of our restricted strategies: please review our Terms & Conditions for details of these strategies.

We have no restrictions on trader’s holding over the weekend.

Traders need to be aware of the risks associated with weekend holding. Markets may experience gaps over the weekend and typically liquidity is thin when markets open for the week causing spreads to be wider than usual. We advise you to manage risk more cautiously during these times.

Sometimes mistakes can happen when trading. If you’ve taken a Challenge and failed for any reason, you’re entitled to a 10% discount when purchasing the same Challenge again.
The following leverage will apply for our various asset classes:

Currencies 50:1, Bullion 50:1, Indices 20:1, Commodities 20:1, Crypto 2:1
You cannot change platforms once a Challenge has started. For example if you purchase a $25,000 Enhanced Challenge account using MT4, you’ll need to continue using MT4 for the remainder of the Challenge and also once funded.
If you do not place a trade at least once every 30 days on your account, we will consider this a Hard Breach and your account will be closed.

There are no restrictions on trading during news in any of our Challenge or Hantec Trader Accounts.

We advise caution during high impact news releases as there is increased volatility and slippage may occur. Slippage is when your order doesn’t fill at a specific price due to no matching order being available and therefore it is executed at the closest available price. 

Using a stop loss is not mandatory.

We do advise the use of stop losses in order to manage risk. Please note stop losses can experience slippage, this occurs but is not limited to higher lot sizes where there is no matching order at that price point and therefore this will be executed at the closest price available with a matching order.

A Hard Breach means that you violated either the Maximum Daily Loss or Maximum Total Loss rule. In the event you have a Hard Breach, you will fail the Challenge or have your Hantec Trader account closed.

A Soft Breach is any rule which, if broken, would close the trade(s) that are in breach. However, your Challenge is not stopped. You can continue trying to reach your profit target.

The Express Challenge has no time limit.

There are no minimum trading days, you could pass on the first day you get your account!

Maximum Daily Loss is 5% for the Express Challenge and is calculated based on the previous day’s end of day (00:00 GMT+3) balance.

Example: If your prior day’s end of day balance was $100,000 you would Hard Breach the Maximum Daily Loss of 5% if your equity the next day fell to below $95,000.
The Maximum Total Loss is initially set at 6% and trails (using CLOSED BALANCE – NOT equity!) your account until you’ve achieved a 6% profit in your account. Once you’ve achieved a 6% profit, the Maximum Total Loss no longer trails and is permanently locked in at your starting balance. This allows for more trading flexibility as you have proven yourself as a profitable trader and can now freely compound an account.

Example: If your starting balance is $100,000, you can drawdown to $94,000 before you would violate the Maximum Total Loss rule. Then for example let’s say you take your account to $102,000 in CLOSED BALANCE. This is your new high-water mark, which would mean your new Maximum Total Loss would be $96,000. Next, let’s say you take your account to $106,000 in CLOSED BALANCE, which would be your new high-water mark. At this point your Maximum Total Loss would be locked in at your starting balance of $100,000. So, regardless of how high your account goes, you would only Hard Breach this rule if your account went down to $100,000 (note, you can still violate the Maximum Daily Loss). For example, if you take your account to $170,000, as long as you don’t lose more than 5% in any given day, you would only Hard Breach if your account equity reaches $100,000.
This is the percentage of the account balance needed in profit to pass the Express Challenge. You will need to make a profit of 10%. Profit is calculated as the sum of all closed positions from your trading account. Additionally there must not be any remaining open positions.

Please note stop losses can experience slippage, this occurs but is not limited to higher lot sizes where there is no matching order at that price point and therefore this will be executed at the closest price available with a matching order.

Maximum Daily Loss is 5% for the Enhanced Hantec Trader Account and is calculated based on the previous day’s end of day (00:00 GMT+3) balance.

Example: If your prior day’s end of day balance was $100,000 you would Hard Breach the Maximum Daily Loss of 5% if your equity the next day fell to below $95,000.

You cannot change platforms once a Challenge has started. Therefore you also cannot change platforms for your Hantec Trader account.

If you do not place a trade at least once every 30 days on your account, we will consider this a Hard Breach and your account will be closed.

The initial withdrawal on your Hantec Trader account can be requested at any time, there are no minimum number of days needed to request your initial withdrawal. Additional withdrawals can be requested once every 30 days from the date of your first withdrawal.

Please note: When you complete a withdrawal, your account’s Maximum Total Loss value will reset and lock at your account’s starting balance. You need to ensure that you do not withdraw all your profits to ensure that you do not Hard Breach the Maximum Total Loss rule when you begin trading again.

For example, you have a $10,000 Enhanced Hantec Trader account and make $1,000 in profits. When you request a withdrawal, your Maximum Total Loss value will be set at $10,000 and locked there. So, if you request a withdrawal of $1,000, you will only need to lose $0.01 to have committed a Hard Breach. If you instead requested a withdrawal of $500, you would have $10,500 left in the account and be able to lose $500 dollars before you would commit a Hard Breach on the account.

If you Hard Breach your Hantec Trader account but you have withdrawable profits, you will still be able to withdraw these as normal. However the account is closed and will not be tradable moving forward.
