The fee mainly serves as a trader’s commitment to treat the virtual account with the utmost care and responsibility. A trader has something in the game and the psychology is working. Also, the fee is just a marginal percentage compared to the size of the Smart Prop Trader Account that you will receive after succeeding in the Evaluation Process. The good news is that you cannot lose more than this fee as any potential losses on the Smart Prop Trader Virtual Account are covered by us. On top of that, the fee is always refunded back to the trader with his/her first Profit Split from the Smart Prop Trader Virtual Account. Our program is a highly valued service we offer, and therefore it is adequately priced.
