SurgeTrader will send login details to the trader’s registered email address.

Contest Rules

There are several competition rules:

  • 5% daily loss limit – based on the trader’s balance at the end of the previous day. The limit resets at 5 pm EST.
  • 6% maximum trailing drawdown – the total amount that traders can draw down before infringing their account. The trailing maximum drawdown will increase until participants hit a 6% profit target. At this point, SurgeTrader will remove the trailing drawdown, allowing traders to draw back down to their starting balance.
  • 10 lots maximum – traders cannot have more than 10 lots open at any point. Breaching this level will result in disqualification.
