Know your Trading Objectives

By meeting the Trading Objectives, you prove that you are a disciplined and experienced trader. Your trading style is entirely up to you; we don’t set any limits on instruments or position size you trade.

Quick comparison
Step 1 FTMO ChallengeStep 2 VerificationStep 3 FTMO Trader
Trading Period30 days60 daysindefinite
The <strong>FTMO</strong> Challenge duration is 30 calendar days; the Verification duration is 60 calendar days. If you manage to pass the Trading Objectives sooner, you do not need to wait for the remaining duration days. For example, if you pass all the Trading Objectives of the FTMO Challenge in just 11 days, no need to wait another 19 days. We will advance you to the Verification as soon as possible.

Minimum trading days 10 days10 daysX
To meet this objective, you must trade for at least 10 days during the current duration cycle. At least one position must be opened in each of these days. A trading day is defined as a day when at least one trade is executed. If a trade is held over multiple days, only the day when the trade was executed is considered to be the trading day. <center><iframe id="121500328" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/PlmbuhlJTqA?wmode=opaque&amp;rel=0&amp;enablejsapi=1&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;rel=0" width="560" height="315" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" data-gtm-yt-inspected-1_19="true" data-mce-fragment="1"></iframe></center>
Maximum Daily Loss$500$500$500
<p dir="ltr">This rule can also be called “trader’s daily stop-loss”. According to our rules, this is set as 5% (10% in case of an Aggressive version) from the initial account balance. The rule says that at any moment of the day [CE(S)T = Central European (Summer) Time], the result of all closed positions in sum with the currently open floating P/Ls (profits/losses) must not hit the determined daily loss limit. The counting formula:</p> <p dir="ltr"><strong>Current daily loss = results of closed positions of this day + result of open positions.</strong></p> <p dir="ltr">For example, in the case of the FTMO Challenge with the initial account balance of $200,000, the Max Daily Loss limit is $10,000. If you happen to lose $8,000 in your closed trades, your account must not decline more than $2,000 this day. It must also not go -$2,000 in your open floating losses. The limit is inclusive of commissions and swaps.</p> <p dir="ltr">Vice versa, if you profit $5,000 in one day, then you can afford to lose $15,000, but not more than that. Once again, be reminded that your Maximum Daily Loss counts your open trades as well. For example, if in one day, you have closed trades with a loss of $6,000 and then you open a new trade that goes into a floating loss of some -$5,700 but ends up positive in the end, unfortunately, it is already too late. In one moment, your daily loss was -$11,700 on the equity, which is more than the permitted loss of $10,000.</p> <p dir="ltr">Be careful as the Maximum Daily Loss resets at midnight CE(S)T! Let’s say that one day you had a profit of $4,000. On the same day, you have an open position with a currently floating loss of $13,000. On this day, the maximum daily loss is not violated. The current daily loss is $9,000. ( $4,000 closed profit – $13,000 open position). However, if you hold this position with an open loss of $13,000 after midnight, the daily loss limit will be violated. This is because your previous day profit doesn’t count to a new day and the open loss of $13,000 exceeds the max daily permitted loss of $10,000.</p> <p dir="ltr">The size of the Maximum Daily Loss gives trader enough space for trading and it guarantees a clearly defined daily risk to the investor. Both the trader and investor benefit from this rule as the account value will not drop below the limit. That’s also why the Maximum Daily Loss limit includes your possible floating losses.</p> <p dir="ltr">You can get more insight into why this rule is in place in this <strong><a href="https://ftmo.com/en/why-do-we-care-about-open-losses/">article</a></strong>.</p> <center><iframe id="636675671" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/qfjaOrsIWtU?wmode=opaque&amp;rel=0&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;rel=0&amp;enablejsapi=1&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;rel=0" width="560" height="315" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" data-gtm-yt-inspected-1_19="true" data-mce-fragment="1"></iframe></center>
Maximum Loss $1 000$1 000$1 000
This rule can also be called “account stop-loss”. The equity of the trading account must not, at any moment during the account duration, decline below 90% of the initial account balance. For the FTMO Challenge with a balance of $100,000, it means that the account lowest possible equity can be $90,000. Again, this is a sum of both closed and open positions (account equity, not balance). The logic of the calculation is the same as with the Maximum Daily Loss; the only difference is that it’s not limited to one day but the entire duration of the testing period. The limit is inclusive of commissions and swaps. 10% of the initial account balance gives trader enough space to prove that his/her account is suitable for the investment. It is a buffer that should keep the trader in the game even if there were some initial losses. The investor has an assurance that the trader’s account cannot decline below 90% (80% in case of Aggressive version) of its value under any circumstance. <center><iframe id="156462739" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/_0qhbgdF4_Q?wmode=opaque&amp;rel=0&amp;enablejsapi=1&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;rel=0" width="560" height="315" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" data-gtm-yt-inspected-1_19="true" data-mce-fragment="1"></iframe></center>
Profit Target$1 000$1 000 $500X
The Profit target in the FTMO Challenge is set to 10% (20% in the Aggressive level) of the initial balance and 5% (10% in the Aggressive level) in the Verification. Profit target means that a trader reaches a profit in the sum of closed positions on the assigned trading account anytime within 30 calendar days in the FTMO Challenge or anytime within 60 calendar days in the Verification. Also, at the end of the trading period, all positions must be closed. For example: If you trade FTMO Challenge with $100,000 account balance, your profit target is $10,000 in the FTMO Challenge and then $5,000 in the Verification. Note that we will provide you with a new free FTMO Challenge every time you meet all the Trading Objectives (regardless of whether that is FTMO Challenge or Verification) except for the Profit Target. To receive the new FTMO Challenge for free, your account profit must be positive at the end of the duration with all positions being closed. <center><iframe id="643922470" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/V6-0KtOH_7k?wmode=opaque&amp;rel=0&amp;enablejsapi=1&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;rel=0" width="560" height="315" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" data-gtm-yt-inspected-1_19="true" data-mce-fragment="1"></iframe></center>
