Evaluation Rules

To successfully pass the evaluation, you must complete the following three goals:

  • 1. Trade at least 8 days (3 days for static)

    A trading day starts at 6PM EST and ends at 5PM EST the following day

  • 2. Reach your profit target
  • 3. Show consistency in attaining profits. UPDATED

    We now calculate consistency differently than all of the other prop firms.

    If you happen to go over the max consistency amount of the original target in a single trading day, we only add that amount to your adjusted profit target.

    So what does that mean?

    • You are no longer over-penalized for going over the max consistency amount in a single trading day.
    • Regardless of how much you go over the max, you are only increasing your target by that excess amount.
    • There is no longer any reason to cut your trade early or lose money for the sake of attaining consistency.

    Explain more

There are only two ways to fail the evaluation:

  • 1. Fall below the minimum balance (trailing)

    The minimum trailing balance increases with your highest unrealized balance. It increases with profits, but it does not decrease with losses.

    For example, the 50K evaluation starts with a 48K minimum balance (trailing by $2000).
    If any trade reached $50,750 at any point, your new minimum balance would be $48,750.
    If a subsequent trade closed back at $50,300, then your minimum balance would still be $48,750.

    If at any point your balance falls to your minimum balance, the evaluation has failed.

    You can monitor your minimum trailing balance in realtime with Rithmic by using the "Auto Liquidate Threshold Value" in RTrader Pro.

    You can monitor your minimum trailing balance in realtime with Tradovate by using the "Drawdown Auto Liq" column of the Accounts tab.

  • 2. Fall below the daily unrealized loss limit in a single trading day.

    The daily loss limit is based on your starting balance at 6PM EST. If you hit the daily loss limit during the evaluation, it fails the account. But this rule is removed after you pass the evaluation.

Things that DONT fail your account

  • Trading news events
  • Using too many contracts

    We will not fail you for using too many contracts and we are able to automatically limit limit your max size if you are trading one product. But if you find a way to use more contracts than your terms, we will liquidate and/or restart your account and/or deny brokerage entry entirely when our system detects it.

    Please do not exploit the system.

  • Trade the wrong hours

    Our system attempts to limit when you can trade and will auto-liquidate around 15 minutes before markets close. This is not a guarantee of liquidation.

    NOTE: Although our system will do it's best to liquidate trades before the close of market. We still need you to take responsibility for closing your trades.
    The system is not perfect. This could result in substantial loss in your account which could then end up being a failure. Please be a responsible trader.

Futures trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

Trading Evaluation Disclaimer

The candidate pass rate of the BluSky evaluation program was 16.9% between April 1, 2023 – Nov 30, 2023. This percentage is based on users that entered the Trading Evaluation and entered the BluLive stage during this time period. The Trading Evaluation is a realistic simulation of trading under actual market conditions and is difficult to pass even for experienced traders. The Trading Evaluation is not suggested for individuals with minimal trading experience.

Hypothetical Performance

Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are last updated June,6, 2022 described below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses like those stated herein; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. for example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program despite trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.

We urge you to not blindly follow anyone's trades, including ours. It is your responsibility to do your own research and determine each trade you place in the market. We are not financial advisors, nothing in any of our presentations is intended as investment advice. Trading in any market is very risky. By showing our own processes and tooling, we are only trying to educate you in the market. In fact, most trader's do not succeed. We are hoping to help you learn more and demonstrate ways you could potentially increase your chances. But using any of the systems/platforms/indicators/strategies we demonstrate will never be a guarantee of success.
