The Forex Funder assesses online demo trading through challenges. By purchasing a challenge, we offer traders the chance to complete an assessment and demonstrate their trading prowess in a risk-free setting. Following evaluation, qualified traders are entitled to a profit split on the gains made in their funded accounts. Here, we will look at our top tips to help you pass your TFF Challenge.

Understand the Parameters

Our most important tip is to ensure you understand all of the rules of the challenge before you start. At TFF, traders can choose from two types of challenges, the traditional 2-phase or the more direct 1-phase.  In the 2-phase evaluation, traders must hit the 8% profit target with no maximum trading days and in the 1-phase the target is 10%, again with no maximum trading days. More information about the challenges can be found here

Have a Solid Trading Plan

Make sure to establish a comprehensive trading plan before you start trading. It should cover the currency pairs you wish to trade, the timeframes you will use, your position size, and your entry and exit rules. Keep your trading style and risk tolerance in mind while creating this plan.

Use a Suitable Strategy

It is recommended to focus on trading strategies that offer a favorable risk-to-reward ratio. At TFF, our top tip is to ensure that each trade you make has at least a 1:3 risk-to-reward ratio. As shown in the video below, starting with an initial trade that carries a 1% risk is advisable until you make a 4% profit. For example, if you’re taking trades with a risk-to-reward ratio of 1:3, it would take two trades to achieve your 4% target. Once you’ve reached your 4% target, the next trade should have a risk-to-reward ratio of 1:2, and you should only risk 2% since you’re already up 4% and only need an additional 4% to progress.

Use Proper Risk Management

It’s not enough to simply demonstrate that you can make a profit – you also need to show that you can minimize losses and preserve capital. To achieve this, it’s essential to have a solid risk management strategy in place. This can involve using stop loss orders, as well as limiting position sizes and diversifying your investment portfolio. By taking these steps, you can help protect your investments and increase your chances of long-term success.

Manage Your Emotions

Emotions can be intense when it comes to Forex trading. However, it is crucial not to allow them to govern your decision-making process. Spontaneous decisions could harm your chances of succeeding in the challenge. Take a look at our blog post on managing your emotions to help you maintain a calm and rational mindset throughout the challenge.

Practice Patience and Discipline

It is important to avoid chasing quick profits and overtrading to meet targets and complete the challenge quickly. Remember, at TFF, there are no maximum trading days on a challenge, so you can take as much time as you need and wait for favorable opportunities to come up.

Keep a Trade Journal

Our final tip is to assess and contemplate your trading performance. The most effective way to do so is by maintaining a trade journal that records your trades, decision-making, triumphs, setbacks, emotions, and any trends in your trading. This will enable you to learn from your errors and refine your approach for the future.

Passing a TFF challenge requires a lot of hard work, dedication and perseverance. However, if you are willing to put in the effort, follow these top tips, and stay focused on your goals, you can succeed and unlock the doors to a rewarding trading career. Remember, it’s not just about winning the challenge, it’s also about developing the skills and knowledge you need to become a successful trader in the long run. So, be patient, stay disciplined and never stop striving for excellence. We wish you the best of luck on your TFF challenge journey!
