The drawdown levels are as follows:

One Step Challenge: 

  • The maximum daily total loss allowed is 4%.
  • The maximum total loss permitted is 8%.

Two Step Challenge:

  • The maximum daily total loss allowed is 5%.
  • The maximum total loss permitted is 10%.

There are no ongoing fees to use the platform.

FX Axe Funding was founded by experienced traders and liquidity risk managers. We see $200.000 as an optimal maximum amount of capital before excess levels of slippage and poor trade conditions not suited to retail traders will set in.

Copying the trades of other users is not permitted. While you can use trade copiers to duplicate your own trades onto your OverFunded account, please exercise caution to avoid inadvertently mirroring other clients’ trades. Your OverFunded account can either act as the primary account or receive trades from your other accounts.

However, it’s essential to ensure that you do not place identical orders simultaneously with other traders on our platform. This situation can arise when using common Expert Advisors (EAs), account management services, or third-party signals. If our system detects consecutive identical orders from two or more users, it is considered a violation of our policies. This rule holds particular importance during the funded trading stage. Although EAs are allowed, we strongly recommend using a unique set of parameters or confirming that no other traders are using the same EA on our servers. This precaution helps prevent our system from flagging duplicate orders.

As we are evaluating the trading of individuals you are solely responsible for your account login details. If you share account passwords with others it will violate our terms and conditions and as such it is not permitted.

You have the flexibility to purchase challenges using various payment methods, including credit cards, debit cards, Skrill, and cryptocurrencies.
