Payout System

The default payout ratio for all FTMO Traders is set to 80%, however, an 80% share is not where we draw the line.

All FTMO Traders can request payout on-demand. The payout can be processed just after 14 days, but you also have the ability to choose your own Profit Split Day, which can be even changed up to three times. In conclusion, we make sure that you will always receive your withdrawal on your most convenient day.

If you meet the conditions of our Scaling Plan, not only do we increase the balance of your FTMO Account by 25%, the payout ratio will also automatically change to a staggering 90 %!

The most popular retail trading platforms

We offer all our clients the best trading solution in the form of our MT4, MT5, DXtrade and cTrader accounts powered by data feed directly from our pool of prime liquidity providers. We do our best to simulate the real market conditions with super-raw spreads, very low commission and no markup to all demo trading accounts with virtual funds.

Account Analysis

When we decided to create this project, we knew that we have to offer our traders an unbiased look at their trading results. Why? Because it does not matter if the trader is a beginner or a professional, another opinion is always invaluable. For many traders, trading is also a lonely activity where many times, even your closest ones do not understand what you do on your computer for so many hours.
