How I Decide Who To Recommend
I only recommend companies I personally am willing to put my own reputation behind. I have talked to their founders, evaluated their funded futures program rules, verified 100% there is payout proof (often times I am able to do this by passing and doing a withdrawal myself) and most of them I have been through their evaluation and passed! With so many new companies out there, I honestly wouldn’t feel comfortable going with a lot of the new ones. Personally I recommend putting your trading career in the hands of a company that is endorsed by someone like myself who has done the research for you.
Summaries of Futures Trader Evaluation Recommended Companies
Apex Trader Funding – My Top Recommendation
Apex Trader Funding has taken the funded futures trader world by storm and quickly became a favorite, including mine. They were started by a well respected trading school called Apex Investing owned by Darrell Martin. They have great rules for traders, the best profit split available out of all the programs, and a huge selection of accounts.
You can read my overview and review of Apex Trader Funding here.
Take Profit Trader
Take Profit Trader offers a nice selection of account sizes, as well as end of day draw downs. They run some great promos and contests, so besides a discount you have the opportunity to win give aways of cash, trips and more. They also allow you to reset your pro account if you break a rule after funding, for a fee.
Take Profit Trader usually runs longer term promos, and as always I’ll have exclusive discounts for you. Be sure to visit my Exclusive Discounts page for the latest.

Topstep is quite literally the first funded futures trader evaluation company. Topstep in July 2023 had a HUGE price cut and very favorable rule changes. I have been funded with Topstep in the past and also highly recommend them.

TradeDay is a more professional oriented company, with very straight forward evaluation to live funded account rules. You’ll be trading with their capital from Day 1 of being funded. Withdrawals are simple, and they have fantastic education available as well.

TickTick Trader is one of the first companies to offer evaluations where when you pass you are then moved to funded, even if you pass in just 1 day! No more waiting 10 to 15 days. They also provide traders with a free license to Jigsaw Daytradr and/or Bookmap.
Bulenox offers a wide selection of trader evaluations, and lets you choose your terms, to a degree. End of Day Drawdown with scaling, or trailing draw down but no scaling plan. As well future months are automatically cheaper for some evaluations.
Bulenox usually runs at least one if not 2 promos at the same time, so there’s always an opportunity to save with Bulenox. Be sure to visit my Exclusive Discounts page for the latest.

BluSky Trading Company
BluSky trading Company is a newer but highly anticipated funded futures program. By very popular demand I reviewed BluSky, talked to the management, and do recommend. They offer 2 very outstanding features – custom profit split offers as your account grows, and a Static Growth account.
BluSky has offered any of my followers an exclusive 25% off (higher than their standard discount) using the code CFT25. You can also see if there’s an even better sale on my Deals and Discounts page.

Earn2Trade has done some serious upgrades the last several years, switching to a new funding partner and also offering deals each month on various evaluations. You can always find their current promo on my Deals Page and as well you can always get 20% off any evaluation by clicking here – discount automatically applied!

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.
