The Challenge

The reality of prop firm challenges is harsh. Strict rules and high-pressure scenarios make it a tough nut to crack for many traders.

According to FTMO, only 10% of traders make it to the funded stage. It's not just about trading skills; it's about strategy, resilience, and the right approach & psychology to these demanding tests.

But, that's where we come in.

The Solution

At AscendFX, these challenges are tackled head-on by Thomas.
Coming with from a background in OTC derivatives and institutional trading, Thomas has more than 10 years experience in both professional and personal trading.

Experienced Challenge Completion:
He'll both be tackling the challenge for you, with each trade manually placed.

  • ~87% Pass Rate

    Till date, Thomas has had a pass rate of close to 90%, inclusive of our own funded accounts. All trades placed are of top quality setups to maximise our passing rate.

  • All Things Manual

    Unlike HFT, such firms do not allow a bot to pass a challenge, especially in such quick succession. All trades placed are vetted and manually taken by Thomas.

  • Realistic Targets

    As with trading, nothing is certain. Most challenges take an average of 1-2 months. This however, changes accordingly to the market conditions - could be faster, or slower.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many clients have you passed?

Our manual passing service has only passed 40+ clients since our launch last year. The reason being - quality over quantity. This is in terms of trades, of course.

As all trades placed are done manually by Thomas. Being the sole trader, we can only take in a limited amount on a monthly basis. This is so that all the time and attention is dedicated to what’s important - getting you funded.

How long will it take to pass the challenge?

On average, it takes approximately 4 weeks per phase. However, please keep in mind that the duration can vary significantly depending on market conditions (e.g. low liquidity during end of year).

Should the market conditions be far from ideal, it may take as long as 2 months.

Can I still place trades on my account?

No, and we strongly advise against it.

Once you've entrusted your account to us for the challenge, all manual trading by the client is strictly prohibited. Any manual trading during this period would void your progress and we will not continue with the service.

Clients are encouraged to only track the account via their dashboard.

What is your guarantee?

Here at AscendFX, we take pride in our high success rate of close to 90%. Our trader, Thomas, is more than well-equipped to pass your challenge without violating any of the prop firm's rules.

However, as with trading, there is no 100% (except for HFT passing services).

In the rare event that we do not succeed in passing your challenge, we will attempt another challenge for you at no additional cost. The retry must be of the same account size.

Please note that such instances are infrequent, and will only typically result from unforeseen market conditions such as black swan events.

What if my account is currently in drawdown?

We accept both new accounts, as well as accounts in drawdown.

As long as your drawdown is not an absurd amount (e.g. 8% loss), then it should be workable as we will reduce our risk level and work more 1:1RR trades.

However, note that accounts in drawdown are (1) technically harder to pass, and (2) will take longer than the initial proposed 2-4 weeks.
