The Consistency rule is in place to measures your ability to build consistent profits and manage risk effectively.
FunderPro’s Consistency Rule aims to help you achieve stable and sustainable profits while effectively managing risk. The rule states that the profits of your best trading day should be no more than 60% of your total profits.
The Consistency Rule is enforced only during Phase 2 (Verification) of the Regular Challenge and during the Fast Track (single-phase) Challenge. It does not apply to the Swing Challenges.
Let’s dive deeper into the Consistency Rule, with concrete examples and tips on how to leverage it to become a more profitable trader.
Consistency Rule Explained
FunderPro’s Consistency Rule is designed to ensure that traders build consistent profits and avoid the pitfalls of emotion-based trading. By keeping your most profitable day below 60% of your total profits, you can better balance your RRR (risk-reward ratio) and develop a more sustainable trading strategy. This rule also helps FunderPro find the best pro traders to fund.
How Is the Consistency Rule Applied?
At FunderPro, one of our trading experts evaluates every Phase 2 challenge manually after the profit target has been met. They will be in touch with you to confirm whether you have complied with the Consistency Rule.
An Example of Consistency Rule Applied
Consider a $25,000 account with a profit target of $2,000 (8%). The daily profit should never exceed $1,200, or 60% of total profits.
• You hit your target and make a total profit of $2,000.
• You make a $1,200 profit in one day.
Result: You don’t pass the Challenge.
• Devise a strategy that doesn’t allow you to go over a $1,200 daily profit.
• Reach a total profit of $2,000.
Result: You pass the Challenge because you proved you can be consistently profitable without relying on big lucky trades that are high-risk.
How the Consistency Rule Helps You Become More Profitable
Avoiding the temptation of a hefty single-day profit—but rather achieving profitability over time—is not only needed to pass the Funded Account Challenge, but also helps you develop long-term habits for success. You will avoid excessive risk-taking and keep on a steady growth trajectory. This approach ultimately leads to better financial outcomes and a more stable trading career.
At FunderPro, we want to help you succeed. This is why we give you unlimited time to pass your Challenge, effectively eliminating the need to take big risks and overtrade to achieve the profit target within a limited time frame.

Also, don’t panic. If you have a bad day, don’t let the urge to make up for it control your trading decisions. Relax, take a step back, and try to understand what went wrong and why.
