3Do you have any payout proof?
Yes. We have QR code verified payout proof certificates. You can use those to tell who is fake and who is the real deal.

No, you can only have one active account at a time.
5How long does it take to get my account?
You should receive your assessment account within 10 minutes of completing your purchase.
6How does scaling work?
Each Tradiac account is automatically a scalable account once you get to the funding stage. For example if you start with a $50k account, each time you reach your profit target another $50k will be added to your next account. You would go from $50k, to $100k, from $100k to $150k, and so on until you reach $1m in funding. As soon as you hit your profit target in your funded account and close out your positions, you will be assigned a new account at the next level and your 90% of profits for that level will be paid out to you.
7How do I pass an assessment?
To pass an assessment you must meet the profit target of your trading track and close out all open trades to successfully complete the assessment.
8What is a trading track?
We currently support 3 trading tracks, Tradiac, Braniac and Maniac. Each having different profit targets, and drawdown and max daily loss rules.
9What happens after passing an assessment?
When you pass the assessment, we will provide you with a funded account to trade at your discretion. You will be trading funds provided by Tradiac in an MT5 account with Scandinavian Capital Markets, earning a performance fee on your trading profits.
1What is the max daily loss rule?
If your account equity reaches or exceeds a 5% drawdown (depending on your trading track, max daily loss will vary) within a given day, you will trigger the max daily loss rule. The max daily loss rule is triggered when your equity falls below 5% of your end-of-day balance at the end of the previous day at 22:00 UTC. Your end-of-day balance is updated at the end of each day. All details will be visible inside the user area on the website or the app.
2What is the max trailing loss rule?
Examples are based on the Tradiac trading track. If your account equity reaches or exceeds a 10% drawdown from the high watermark, you will breach the max trailing loss rule. When starting a new program, your high watermark equals your starting balance. Each time you realize profits, your high watermark will increase. It will not decrease with losses.
3What is the maximum exposure I can have in my account?
You have up to 20:1 leverage. You can open up 5 lots max per trade. You can open as many trades as you like until you run out of free margin in the account.

Your account will be closed if you don't open, close, or modify any positions for 30 consecutive days. If you have a funded account, you remain entitled to your performance fee from the profits in the account. Unfortunately, you must retake the assessment if we terminate your account due to inactivity.

3What is a redemption test and how does it work?
A redemption test allows you to keep the progress of your account at its most current scaling level while you are scaling up rather than losing your progress and having to start from the beginning, upon a risk management failure. You have 30 calendar days to opt in for a redemption. After this period you will have to start over from the beginning.
4How do you calculate the price for a redemption?
The base capital of your checkpoint level multiplied by 0.95%
5Is there a limit to how many redemptions I can take?
Redemptions are unlimited. As long as they are purchased within 30 days of the RMF (Risk Management Failure)
