Apex Trader Funding has been successful in funding in excess of $100 million in accounts to futures traders. With a funded account (called performance account) there are rules in order to maintain and keep your account. Below is a summary of the Apex Trader Funding performance account rules.
On a side note, I have personally been paid by Apex Trader Funding every month since November 2021. I’ve had great success trading with my Apex Trader Funding $300K accounts and look forward to a long relationship with them.
The trailing drawdown at Apex Trader Funding is the real only rule in my opinion that can get you. The drawdown (the amount varies by account size) trails live during any trade. If you are up $1,000 at one point in a trade, your draw down has also been pulled up $1,000.
The best way to manage the live trailing draw down in my opinion is to first of all not trade bigger size than you should. Just because you can trade your full allocation of contracts doesn’t always mean you should. Second, you should be setting taking profits and/or setting a very tight trailing stop. If you are up $1,000 and end up only capturing $200 in profit because you let it come against you, that was a bad trading decision.
You can monitor your trailing draw down in Rithmic. As well you should have a general idea of where it is at at any point. At worst, check it after each trade is complete.
Approved Trading Times
Apex Trader Funding allows you to trade 23 hours a day. All your trades and open orders must be cancelled by 4:59 PM EST every day. This includes open stop and limit orders. You can start trading at 6pm EST from Sunday to Thursday.
Note that if you trade in the evening (say 7pm EST), that counts as part of the next trading day. 7pm Sunday is really just part of Monday.
That’s It For Trading Rules
Honestly that is it for trading rules. There are rules around withdrawals and that schedule, but for trading your account don’t violate the trailing draw down, don’t trade in that 1 hour that’s prohibited each day, and you are set!
Apex Trader Funding also has several non-rules – benefits to their funded accounts over the competition because of their liberal rules so you can trade how you like. Some of the benefits of items that are NOT rules are:
- No scaling plan – trade your full amount of contracts from day 1
- No failing because of trading too many – the system won’t let you
- No daily loss limit
- Trade on holidays, no exclusions
- Use trade copiers on multiple accounts
- Monthly fee includes withdrawal fee
Apex Trader Funding performance account rules are very generous and easy to abide by. The main one to watch is your trailing draw down. Beyond that, trade your way and be a profitable and successful trader with Apex Trader Funding!

Futures and forex 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 life style. 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.
Hypothetical Performance Disclosure:
Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular 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 in spite of 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.
