Choose from our diverse selection of plans, designed to accommodate traders at every stage of their journey
At ACG, we understand that every trader is unique, and that's why we offer custom plans tailored to your specific needs.
Traders have unlimited calendar days to complete Phase 1.
Then you will move to Phase 2 where you will have unlimited calendar days to complete the challenge.
Traders must trade for a minimum of 3 days within each phase.
Daily loss limit is calculated based on 5% of the starting balance of each trading day.
This is the Virtual Account balance at the close of the daily candle on broker time.
For example, if the Virtual account balance is $100,000 and your equity is $101,000 (at the close of the daily candle), then your max daily risk for the following day will be 5% of the starting balance of the day $100,000 = $5000, and the Virtual profits on your P/L carried over from the previous trading day will be added to your daily loss limit. in this case, $5000 + $1000 = $6000.
The daily loss limit for this given day would still be $5000, but you’re allowed to lose $1000 more of the floating Virtual profits for a total of $6000.
Alternatively, if the Virtual account balance is $100,000 and your equity is $99,000 (at the close of the daily candle) then the max daily risk for the following day would be 5% of the starting balance of the day $100,000 = $5000, and the losing positions on your P/L results carried over from the previous trading day will be deducted to your daily loss limit, in this case, $5000 – $1000 = $4000.
The daily loss limit for this given day would still be $5000 initially, but since there’s a carried loss of -$1000 then will be deducted from the daily loss limit, and now a remainder of $4000 is left to lose before the Virtual account is flagged as Failed as per the daily loss limit.
Maximum of 10% loss on the initial starting balance on all our challenges.
For example, on a 100K Challenge, the maximum loss is $10,000. This rule is breached if the Virtual account balance or equity drops below % 90,000.

Is There A Legal Agreement For Funded Accounts With Alpha Capital Group?
Yes, once the trader has passed the evaluation phase, a trader’s agreement between alpha capital group limited and the trader will be signed prior to
receiving the live funded account.
Please email email@example.com for a copy of this agreement.
Is Hedging & Stacking Allowed?
Yes, these are both allowed.
Stacking is classified as the opening of multiple trades in the same direction at the same price point.
Is Martingale Strategy Allowed?
No this strategy is not allowed.
Alpha Capital Group consider Martingale strategies to be the following:
Opening a position in the same direction whilst the first position opened is in drawdown. If the consecutive position is opened at an exponent more than 1x we consider this to be martingale strategy.
For example, if you open a 1 lot buy on GBPUSD, and this position goes into open drawdown, you can open additional buys on GBPUSD as long as the lot size is the SAME or SMALLER, you CANNOT INCREASE the position size..
Once all buys are closed on GBPUSD, you can then open a new first trade on GBPUSD at a position size of your choice unrestricted.
Are EA’s And Copy Trades Allowed?
We will require that you email us before purchasing a challenge to pre approve your Expert Advisor. You can reach us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org using the subject title EA Pre Approval.
Copy Trades we do not allow copy trading from other groups. We don’t not allow traders to copy other trader’s trades either. No Group copy trading is allowed.
The only copy trading allowed is that from your own external account to your account with Alpha capital group limited. Any traders found copy trading other traders’ trades will be subject to review and potential breach of agreement, meaning you will lose the funded account.
Taking advantage of unrealistic fills is not allowed and will lead to account failure.
