You will receive your account parameters including profit target and loss limits according to the account size you have chosen.

There is no limit to how much you can grow your account using the Scaling Plan and profits accumulated. We do not limit profitable traders, in fact we support your growth.
Max daily loss is based on 5% of the Initial account balance calculated by subtracting it from the account equity when the account resets. For instance, on a 200K Account the max daily loss is fixed $10.000.
Example using an $200,000 account:
Your daily loss is $10,000 and today you have already made $2,000 profit, so you only hit the daily loss if you lose $12,000 today.
The account equity must not hit/exceed the max daily loss throughout the day including unrealized positions any time during a 24-hour cycle. The starting point for the calculation of max daily limit is the reset time.
Max Daily loss

The maximum drawdown allowed in your account during the Evaluation Program is 10%.
Example using a $200,000 account. Max total loss is 10% of your initial balance = $20,000.
If you already have a profit of $ 10,000 accumulated during the trading period, you will only reach the max total loss if you accumulate a $ 30,000 loss.

Your account equity including unrealized/floating positions must not hit/exceed below 90% of your initial balance at any given time.
