2-Step evaluation process

Initiate the process!

Phase 1 is the first step of our trader evaluation. To trade an E8 account where you can start earning, we need to ensure you can trade responsibly and manage risk appropriately. Phase 1 has reasonable rules, where the performance target is in balance with the drawdown allowed. We call these trading objectives. Traders have unlimited time to complete this step. As soon as you meet all the Objectives of Phase 1, you can proceed to Phase 2. If you adhere to the risk management rules and finish above break even but don’t meet the profit targets, you can try again for free.

Phase Objectives:

Welcome to the team!

Phase-2 is the second step of our trader evaluation. The purpose of Phase-2 is to observe how you manage risk. We need to be sure that you can trade your strategy in the long run while respecting capital and maintaining the rules. In Phase-2, the performance target is reduced to 5%, and you have unlimited time to achieve the trading objectives here. As soon as you meet all of the objectives, you will become an E8 Trader. If you adhere to the risk management rules, finish with profit, but don’t meet the profit targets you are able to try again for free.

Frequently Asked Questions

E8 Funding Process

As soon as we receive all the information required at sign up, a team member will email you your account credentials as soon as your payment is verified. After that, your E8X dashboard will have login credentials available.

To start earning with E8, simply sign up for the product or the account size you wish to trade with, wait until we send you an email with a link to your login credentials, and begin trading to prove your skill while following our trading objectives and rules. In order to become an E8 Trader, you will have to pass our 2-step evaluation process consisting of Phase-1 and Phase-2.

For regular accounts:

 

You can receive the trading account in less than one day depending on your performance.

The minimum requirement to pass Phase-1 is to trade for at least 1 trading day.

The minimum requirement to pass Phase-2 is to trade for at least 1 trading day.

The minimum requirement to pass Phase-3 is to trade for at least 1 trading day.

 

You don’t need to wait for the entire duration of the evaluation process. All in all, you can be managing your E8 Account in 2 trading days.

You can receive the trading account in 24 days depending on your performance.

 

The minimum requirement to pass Phase-1 is to trade for at least 5 trading days.

The minimum requirement to pass Phase-2 is to trade for at least 5 trading days.

When you pass Phase-1 or Phase-2, our system will automatically begin evaluation of the account ensuring you have met all the requirements without violating any of our rules. Shortly after the review we designate an account for you to start trading with the amount of starting capital you have signed up for in the evaluation.

If you violate the rules, you can buy a new account and start the process over when you feel you are ready. E8 or E8 Track and the corresponding Trader Agreement will be terminated if you violate a Trading Objective or Rule. Also, the initial paid fee for the related Evaluation will be forfeited. Its time to reflect on how you can come back and use the evaluation as a tool to sharpen your trading skills. You can try over again and order a new Evaluation if you wish to become an E8 trader, but no discount will be provided.

The E8 Account allows traders to receive 80% of profits they have generated while trading in each 14-day period. The first payout is eligible in 8 days, then your next payout are eligible every 14 days after your last payout. You will trade with the same account balance that you traded in the E8 Evaluation. If you traded with $250,000 in the E8 Evaluation, you will also trade $250,000 in the E8 Account.

 

To avoid any confusion, please note that all accounts that we provide to our clients are simulated accounts with virtual funds. After a client becomes an E8 Trader, they are provided with login credentials to a simulated trading account, with the difference that the E8 Account is that you start earning based on your performance, work on building systems with your data. Traders are entitled to 80% of earnings generated on the E8 Trader Account. This solution allows us to maintain a fluid process and gives us the oppurtunity to build with your trading data without affecting your trade results.

Traders are not responsible for the financial losses made in the E8 Account. Traders agree to follow the Trading Rules and Objectives. If a rule or objective is violated, the account will be closed, and the corresponding Trader Agreement will be terminated.

The fee is refundable with the first payout, otherwise, fees are not refundable once you begin trading your E8 Evaluation. If you wish to receive a refund before taking any trades on your account, simply contact us and we will process a refund. However, refunds are not eligible after the earlier of (a) 30 days from the date of initial purchase or (b) the date the trader first executed a trade on the account.


We don’t charge any commissions for refunds. However, the payment processor may charge some fees.

Rules on E8 Account

You are free to trade any news events on the E8 Trader account and during Phase-1 and Phase-2 of the evaluation for E8 and E8 Track as long as you are aware of the risks involved with a slippage.

To clarify, you can trade news and it will not be a direct violation. However, you should understand that there are occurrences where slippages occur and that the trader is ultimately responsible should one cause a violation of the max loss rules.

We cannot guarantee any profits generated during such high-risk news events and we cannot protect you from any losses taken because the trades may not actually fill or may fill causing a loss on your simulated account which is designed to mimic live trading account conditions. Therefore, it is best to avoid trading during high-impact news releases, but it is not a violation.

Yes, you are allowed to hold trades overnight, however as a trader you should be aware of bad market conditions that may occur during a market rollover.

We don't advise trading during a market rollover, because the liquidity on all pairs is being reduced and thus all spreads will be negatively affected for our traders and us. You should be especially careful with pairs containing AUD, NZD, CHF, and JPY affected the most during midnight rollovers and bank rollovers.

Bear in mind that any losses caused by widened spread or slippage can not be REIMBURSED by us.

Easily keep track of your trading performance through the E8X dashboard. In our opinion there is no better way to clearly view all your most important statistics.

  • Use Quick View for a simple goals overview review.
  • Or use E8X for a full analysis of your account.

At this time, we offer up to 1:50 leverage.

 

Major up to 1:50.
Exotics up to 1:50.
Commodities & Indices up to 1:50.
Crypto up to 1:5.


As professional traders, we understand the importance of the risk management and we believe that focusing on your risk allocation rather than on your leverage is the best way to succeed. We believe that traders should be more focused on the maximum drawdown rules rather than on the maximum leverage.

Daily Drawdown is initially calculated by 5% of your initial balance or scaled balance (balance after withdrawal) of your account.

 

It is then calculated of the starting equity or the balance of each new day (depending on which is higher) during market rollover (00:00 UTC+3).

 

Example scenario: If your starting equity at the start of the new day (00:00 UTC+3) is $103,000, but your balance is $100,000, your daily stop-out level is $98.000 within the same day until the equity resets with your new registered balance at market rollover again.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To better understand your limits, always follow your account loss analysis, which is located in the top right corner of your dashboard.

For example here, the starting equity of the account was 105 048,41 US$, so the Loss level was 100 048.41 US$.

Loss level represents the amount that you can not exceed.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Bear in mind that we don't recommend trading one hour before and after the market rollover, because of bad market conditions caused by low liquidity and high volatility.

Clients can trade Forex, Commodities, Indexes, Equities, and Cryptocurrencies. Our comprehensive list is shown after users log in the E8Funding MT4.

We employ a sophisticated, data-driven approach that sets us apart in the industry. By aggregating data from a diverse pool of E8 traders, we aim to develop proprietary trading systems that can generate consistent returns. This robust data aggregation also enables us to offer valuable insights to private equity firms engaged in real trading.

Our method is designed to mitigate risk by not being overly reliant on a single trader, while simultaneously giving each trader the freedom to implement their own strategies. The more traders we bring on board, the more comprehensive our data sets become, further refining our trading algorithms and giving us more data to build with.

Contrary to popular belief, building a successful trading system is far from simple. It involves years of meticulous data collection, rigorous analysis, and continuous refinement. It's this commitment to innovation and data-driven decision-making that makes E8 truly unique.
