How do I become an FTMO Trader?
In order to become an FTMO Trader, you will have to pass our 2-step Evaluation Process.
Step 1: The FTMO Challenge
A 30 calendar day demo account where you will have to trade according to our rules. You will have superior account conditions in the form of our own FTMO account solution with very low commissions and raw spreads. If you manage to pass all requirements, you will proceed to the second and final step of the evaluation.
Step 2: The Verification
A 60 calendar day demo account whereby you verify your performance and consistency one last time. The rules in the Verification stage are significantly easier. For a detailed explanation of the rules, please visit the Trading Objectives site.
After you successfully pass the Verification stage, you are to become an FTMO Trader after passing our review of your trading. To conclude a contract for your FTMO Account, we will ask you to provide your ID document (passport, national ID card, or driving licence) and complete your identification. The conclusion of the contract is dependent on the finalisation of identification procedures in accordance with the FTMO internal policies. FTMO Trading does not provide services to persons listed on sanction lists, persons with criminal records related to financial crime or terrorism, persons below 18 years of age, company trusts, and persons previously banned because of breach of an FTMO Account Agreement. In case any of the above-stated reasons are detected after an FTMO Account Agreement between FTMO and customer has been concluded, FTMO reserves the right to terminate the contract concerned.
Note we don’t grant an FTMO Account based on any past track record.
