Frequently Asked Questions
How many accounts can I have?
We do not place any limit on the number of trading accounts you can have in the FTMO Challenge and Verification. However, we have a maximum capital allocation of $400,000 (on Normal risk setup, prior to scaling) per trader or strategy, at any given time (or $200,000 for the Aggressive risk setup) for any FTMO Account which is connected to our Proprietary Trading Firm.
Equivalent limits are in place for trading accounts in other currencies – €320,000; £280,000; CAD 480,000; AUD 520,000; CHF 320,000 or CZK 8,000,000.
These limits are in place due to risk mitigation & diversification as we don’t want to allocate a big portion of our investment on one card.
Please be careful not to get multiple accounts through various registrations as this is not permitted. If we discover identically traded strategies through various accounts, and exceeding $400,000 in the summary of allocated capital value, we reserve the right to suspend those accounts as per the T&Cs.
If you would like to combine your successfully passed evaluation accounts into one master FTMO Account, we can do so upon request. The combined FTMO Accounts need to be at least at their initial account balance to be merged and meeting the following conditions:
- The FTMO Account is not in drawdown.
- There is no profit due for the 80/20 Profit Split.
- All accounts to be merged have the same risk setup.
- All accounts to be merged are in the same base currency.
The FTMO Account that is merged has a combined balance value as well as the drawdown limits (5% Max Daily Loss/10% Max Loss). If you wish to compound your profits, you do not have to withdraw your profits before merging the accounts.
