Home » Prop firm drawdown limitations

Proprietary trading firms offer traders a chance to work with more significant amounts of funds without risking their own capital. However, prop firms have different funding programs with various rules. The drawdown limitations are the main rule that prop trading firms don’t allow you to break during evaluation.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Proprietary trading firms use different phrases for the drawdown limitation rules, which means that two prop firms can have the exact same phrase used, but a different meaning for their limitation. For exact explanations of drawdown limitations, you should check out the terms & conditions of each presented proprietary trading firm to get the correct knowledge about their limits that you are not allowed to breach!
