The Verdict: Ftmo or The5ers?
There’s no such thing as a perfect Proprietary Trading Firm, but some are going to be a better fit for you than others.
Objectively, Ftmo is more reliable based on our criteria above.
What We Really Like on Ftmo
FTMO has generous conditions for its traders
FTMO charges a one-time fee only
What We Don’t Like on The5ers
There are other holes in the 5%er offer
5%ers Challenge fee is on the higher end of the spectrum
Other Important Factors That Influence Our decision the most
The 5%ers do a neat 50/50 profit split with successful traders. While this seems fair on paper, many of the rival prop firms offer much higher ratios. Therefore we’ve decided to view the payout scheme as the weakest point of an otherwise fairly good all-rounder.
There are other holes in the 5%er offer too. The firm imposes restrictions on lot sizes [**this may no longer be true, have they removed the 0.65 lot limit?**] which doesn’t suit many trading styles.
