Challenge Model

To become a funded Quantum Trader, traders must first successfully complete our Evaluation process.

Begin by selecting your preferred account size and registering for the Evaluation.

Once you have completed the Evaluation, you will be eligible to become a funded Quantum Trader.

The Quantum Evaluation is a 1-step or  2-step evaluation process to determine the profitability of a trader.

Traders need to achieve specific profit targets of 10% (1-Step Challenge) or 8% and 5% (2-Step Challenge), all while following our trading rules and risk management principles.

Starting your journey with Quantum Funding is simple and straight-forward. To start your trading journey with us, just follow these steps:

  1. Choose the evaluation account size you want to trade.
  2. Complete the checkout process and pay for the evaluation.
  3. After your payment is processed, you will receive an email with your account credentials and login details for the Quantum Funding dashboard.

We offer six different account sizes, starting from $5,000 up to $200,000.

This variety ensures that all traders have the opportunity to participate in our Quantum Evaluation.

We accept a variety of payment options for our Quantum Evaluations. You can pay using credit/debit cards, as well as cryptocurrency.

After completing your payment, you will receive the login details for your trader dashboard and trading account within 24 hours. Be sure to check your junk or spam folder if you do not see the credentials in your inbox.

If you haven’t received your login information and purchase confirmation after 24 hours, please reach out to our support team through the ‘Contact’ page on our website.

At Quantum you can purchase and participate in multiple Evaluations at the same time. Please keep in mind that the maximum allocation of a trading account is limited to $400,000.

You can monitor your trading progress and performance at any stage of your evaluation, as well as when you are a funded Quantum Trader, through our custom Trading Dashboard.

This dashboard provides detailed insights and advanced analytics to help you understand your trading activities better. Therefore, you have all your trading objectives in sight at all times.

Congratulations! After successfully completing the objectives of Phase 1 (1-Step Challenge) or Phase 2 (2-Step Challenge), you’ll need to complete the KYC process and sign the Traders Agreement. Once these steps are completed, it typically takes 1-2 business days to set up your funded trading account.

You will receive email notifications as you pass each stage, and your new account credentials will be sent to you automatically.

To advance to our funded trading accounts, you must complete the verification process. You will need to provide the following documents:

  • ID Verification
  • Address Verification
  • Biometric Verification

When signing up, please use your legal name as it appears on your ID or passport—nicknames or call signs are not permitted. It is also essential to use your current address, as the KYC documents must match the details we have on file. The KYC verification is conducted by our partner, Sumsub.

Note that verification is only required once you reach the funded stage of your evaluation.

If a trading account violates the rules or trading parameters during the Evaluation, your account will be disqualified from moving to a funded account. If such violations occur on a funded account, the account will be closed, and the Trader Agreement will be terminated.

Keep in mind that some violations might not be immediately detected. Our risk team may identify these only during periodic reviews of the account.

The evaluation fee for the account you complete is fully refundable upon receiving your third payout.

However, if you do not pass the evaluation and fail to reach your first payout, the fee is non-refundable.

The maximum capital allocation at Quantum Funding is $400,000.

Every Quantum Trader receives 80% of his hard earned profits.

Upon successful completion of Phase 1 oof the 2-Step Quantum Challenge, you will be immediately provided with a Phase 2 trading account, ensuring a seamless continuation of your trading journey.

Trading Rules

The “Profit Target” is the specific financial goal you need to meet in your trading evaluation. When you reach this goal and close all your positions, you can move to the next phase or become a funded Quantum Trader.

1-Step Challenge:

  • Phase 1: Earn a 10% profit while following all trading rules.


2-Step-Challenge:

  • Phase 1: Earn an 8% profit while following all trading rules.
  • Phase 2: Make a 5% profit, while following all trading rules.

 

1-Step Challenge:

The maximum allowable daily loss is 3% of the account balance. To calculate the daily drawdown, the following procedure is adopted: Each day at the transition time of 12am CEST, we assess both the account balance and account equity, selecting the greater of these two values. From this selected value, a fixed rate of 3% of the account balance is deducted to set the limit for permissible daily loss for the next trading day. This method ensures that trading limits are both clearly defined and consistently applied, safeguarding against excessive risk and potential significant loss.

Example 1: Consider a $100,000 account where, at 12am CEST, there is an open trade showing a floating profit of $2,000, making the account equity $102,000. With a 3% daily drawdown rule, the equity must not fall below $98,940 on the next trading day ($102,000 – $3,060 = $98,940).

Example 2: On the same $100,000 account, if at 12am CEST there is an open trade with a floating loss of $2,000, the account equity would be $98,000. Since the original balance of $100,000 is higher than the current equity of $98,000, the 3% daily drawdown limit will be calculated based on the $100,000 balance. Thus, for the next trading day, the equity must not fall below $97,000 ($100,000 – $3,000 = $97,000).

Example 3: If there are no open trades at 12am CEST, the daily drawdown will simply be 3% of whatever the account balance is at that time.

2-Step Challenge:

The maximum allowable daily loss is 5% of the account balance. To calculate the daily drawdown, the following procedure is adopted: Each day at the transition time of 12am CEST, we assess both the account balance and account equity, selecting the greater of these two values. From this selected value, a fixed rate of 5% of the account balance is deducted to set the limit for permissible daily loss for the next trading day.

Example 1: Consider a $100,000 account where, at 12am CEST, there is an open trade showing a floating profit of $2,000, making the account equity $102,000. With a 5% daily drawdown rule, the equity must not fall below $97,000 on the next trading day ($102,000 – $5,100 = $96,900).

Example 2: On the same $100,000 account, if at 12am CEST there is an open trade with a floating loss of $2,000, the account equity would be $98,000. Since the original balance of $100,000 is higher than the current equity of $98,000, the 5% daily drawdown limit will be calculated based on the $100,000 balance. Thus, for the next trading day, the equity must not fall below $95,000 ($100,000 – $5,000 = $95,000).

Example 3: If there are no open trades at 12am CEST, the daily drawdown will simply be 5% of whatever the account balance is at that time.

1-Step Challenge:

The total permissible loss on your account is capped at 6%.

For instance, if you are trading with an initial account balance of $100,000:

– The maximum allowable total loss is calculated as 6% of your initial balance, equating to $6,000.

– Therefore, including any unrealized or floating positions, your account equity must not fall below $94,000.

2-Step Chalenge:

The total permissible loss on your account is capped at 10%.

For instance, if you are trading with an initial account balance of $100,000:

– The maximum allowable total loss is calculated as 10% of your initial balance, equating to $10,000.

– Therefore, including any unrealized or floating positions, your account equity must not fall below $90,000.

Traders are expected to actively trade for a minimum of 5 trading days.

At Quantum Funding, copy trading is allowed under specific conditions. It is permissible to copy trades between Quantum Funding trading accounts, evaluation firms, or retail brokerage accounts, provided that all the accounts involved are owned by the same individual. This means you can freely copy trades between any and all accounts that you personally own, ensuring that all trading activities are contained within your personal portfolio.

However, copy trading between accounts not owned by the same individual is strictly prohibited. This includes accounts belonging to relatives, family members, or friends. Additionally, using Signal Trading, which involves executing trades based on signals from community groups, is also not allowed. These restrictions are in place to maintain the integrity and independence of each trader’s activities.

Unauthorized activities such as copy trading between accounts not owned by the same person, managing accounts on behalf of others, or offering services to help others pass Challenges are strictly forbidden. Quantum Funding requires all traders to operate independently, without relying on external sources or collaborations.

Any breach of these guidelines will result in an immediate breach of the trading account and direct termination from the Quantum Funding platform.

You can use Trade Copiers with Quantum Funding.

Trade Copiers are permitted only for copying your own trading ideas. Copying trades from third parties is prohibited.

The use of Expert Advisors (EA’s) are allowed on Quantum Funding.

Using a third-party Expert Advisor is permitted if it functions as a trade or risk manager. However, the use of any other third-party Expert Advisor is prohibited.

We impose no limitations on maintaining trades overnight or during the weekend.

We permit trading around news events on challenge accounts.

As a funded Quantum Trader, news trading is not permitted. Please avoid opening or closing trades 2 minutes before and after high-impact news events, as listed on the Forex Factory news calendar. Any profits earned during this restricted period will be subject to removal without account violation.

Hedging within the same trading account is permitted. This allows traders to buy and sell the same financial instrument, like EUR/USD, using just one account.

Example of Allowed Hedging:

– A trader can simultaneously buy and sell EUR/USD in the same account.

However, you cannot hedge by taking opposite positions in separate accounts.

Example of Prohibited Hedging:

– A trader cannot buy EUR/USD in one account and sell it in another account.

Hedging across different accounts with other evaluation firms, similar to Quantum Funding, is also not allowed.

Implementation of Martingale strategies are allowed on Quantum Funding.

The use of a Stop Loss is optional. Traders are not required to set one. However, it is highly recommended to use a Stop Loss to help manage risk effectively.

At Quantum Funding, we empower traders by offering them the freedom to select their own trading styles and strategies without imposing restrictions.

However, we strongly recommend reviewing the list of Forbidden Trading Practises at to ensure compliance with our trading rules.

Account Management and Trading Integrity:

– Exclusive Trading: Every account must solely be traded by the account owner without any third-party intervention. Sharing account credentials or allowing others to trade on your behalf is against our rules and will lead to the termination of all involved accounts. Purchasing or offering account management services, or participating in services aimed at passing evaluations for others, is strictly prohibited.

– High-Frequency Trading: This refers to automated trading that executes a high volume of trades at extremely fast speeds, which is prohibited.

– Arbitrage Trading: Engaging in latency or reverse arbitrage trading is expressly forbidden.

– Tick Scalping: Scalping that relies on tick movements, which cannot be accurately replicated in live trading, is prohibited.

– Reverse Trading: Behavior such as risking the full daily loss on a single trade is often seen as a sign of reverse trading between different firms.

– Gambling Rule: Engaging in gambling or all-or-nothing behavior is strictly prohibited when using our services. This includes, but is not limited to, revenge trading (trading driven by the desire to recover losses from previous trades), over-leveraging (using excessive leverage that significantly increases risk), over exposure (taking on positions that are disproportionately large relative to your account size), and risking the majority or more than your drawdown limits on open trades. Our team will review and make decisions regarding these behaviors at our sole discretion.

Should any trader be found engaging in these prohibited practices, Quantum Funding reserves the right to terminate the account and withhold any payouts, without offering a refund.

These guidelines are implemented to safeguard the fairness and integrity of our trading environment, ensuring all participants engage in responsible and ethical trading.

You must place at least one trade every 30 days to keep your account active.

Failure to do so will result in your account being considered inactive and will lead to a breach of your account terms. This activity requirement starts from the day your trading account is created.
