Frequently Asked Questions
Who can join FTMO?
Apart from the exceptions listed below, we accept clients from all around the world. There is no special qualification required. All clients must be at least 18 years old. If you know how to trade profitably and with proper risk management in place, then you’re the person we are looking for.
USA update – January 2024:
Since the establishment of our company, our goal has been to provide top-quality services for our clients. Unfortunately, at present, we are not able to do that in the United States due to specific conditions in the market segment there. Therefore, we have decided to suspend the purchase of the FTMO Challenge for our new and existing US clients, both nationals and residents (clients who are non-US nationals but reside in the USA), just as we put a hold on onboarding new US clients. At the same time, we are looking for ways to make FTMO available again to all those interested in trading in the USA. Please note that US nationals who reside outside of the USA are also included in these restrictions and cannot be onboarded. Our existing clients can continue to use the services as normal. Nothing changes for clients, partners and those interested in our services in other markets, as the problem only concerns the specifics of our operations in the US market. Our goal remains that FTMO brings value to everyone interested in trading, taking them at least a step further.
Please note that FTMO does not provide services to persons in/from Iran, Syria, Myanmar, and North Korea, persons listed on sanction lists, persons with criminal records related to financial crime or terrorism, and persons previously banned because of breach of contract. In the case of the United States of America, FTMO does not accept clients in Louisiana, South Carolina, Montana, Arkansas, and Delaware. FTMO also does not accept clients – legal persons, who are company trusts.
Due to regulatory developments and business decisions based on risk management considerations, FTMO does not provide services to clients in Afghanistan, India, the Russian Federation, the Republic of Belarus, Ukraine (restrictions are limited to the following regions: Crimea, Sevastopol, Donetsk, Kherson, Luhansk, and Zaporizhzhia), the Republic of Indonesia, Cuba, Venezuela, Sudan, and South Sudan.
