Once traders pass the Gauntlet or Gauntlet Mini examination, they have the option of continuing to the prop firm and trading on a live account, or trading on a simulated trading account, the LiveSim.

The LiveSim is a simulated trading account where traders can continue to hone their skills in a simulated environment, while having the benefit of being able to withdraw their profit. The simulated environment is populated by a live data feed (provided by Rithmic), and can be traded on using a wide variety of trading platforms that integrate with Rithmic.

The LiveSim is meant as an optional intermediary step for successful Gauntlet and Gauntlet Mini candidates, and is meant as a bridge between trading on a simulator and trading on a live account.

After reaching a $5,000.00 profit level on the LiveSim, the trader will be moved to a live account. Of the $5,000.00 profit level, 80% or $4,000.00 is withdrawable.

All the same rules apply for the Gauntlet™ and Gauntlet Mini™ as in the LiveSim. Please read about the difference between Live and LiveSim accounts on our website here.

Please note that Earn2Trade's core mission is finding traders who can be profitable and a valuable addition to a proprietary trading firm. While LiveSim is offered as an option, the proprietary trading firms, depending on your performance, may decide to provide a Live account instead of a LiveSim.
