What is the difference between Tradiac, Brainiac and Mainaic?

How long can I get my Funded Account?
After you have passed your assessment account. Your account will be checked by the Risk Management Department, the overall process will take 1-2 business days.
Is scalping allowed?

What is Tradiac?
A funded trader program where users take an assessment and upon passing get access to funded accounts to trade and scale up.
Are there any recurring fees to join?
No. The initial assessment fee covers all costs associated with participating in the assessment. You will not be required to pay recurring costs for market data, trading platforms or anything else. However, if you fail your assessment, you’ll need to purchase again or purchase a redemption.
How 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.
How 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.
What 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 earning a performance fee on your trading profits.

What are the payout methods?
Payouts are processed via bank wire or paypal. Paypal can take up to 72 business hours and bank wire can take up to 10 business days.
What 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.
What 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.
Can I hold positions overnight and over the weekends?
Yes. You can hold trades both overnight and over the weekends.
What happens if I don’t trade for several weeks?

You have 30 calendar days to opt in for a redemption. After this period you will have to start over from the beginning.
Whose money is being traded?
