Our Smart Prop Trader Challenge is the first step of our Evaluation Process . Before we allow you to trade our Smart Prop Trader Account, we need to be sure you can trade responsibly and manage risk properly. The Smart Prop Trader Challenge stage has reasonable rules, where the Profit Target is in balance with the drawdown we allow you to take. We call these rules Trading Objectives. Note that you don’t need to utilize the entire duration of 40 days. As soon as all the Trading Objectives of the Smart Prop Trader Challenge are met, you can proceed to the Verification phase. There is no minimum trading days required for the Smart Prop Trader challenge!
