What is the Consistency Rule?

What is the Consistency Rule?

The Consistency Rule in FunderPro is designed to ensure you achieve steady and sustainable profits while effectively managing risk. The rule states that the earnings of your best trading day should not exceed 45% of your total profits.

The Consistency Rule applies during all Phases of all Challenge types. It does not apply to live Funded Accounts.

Why is the Consistency Rule Important?

FunderPro's Consistency Rule aids in the cultivation of consistent profits and the avoidance of emotion-driven trading. By ensuring your most profitable day falls below 45% of your overall profits, you can better manage your risk-reward ratio (RRR) and develop a more sustainable trading approach. This rule assists FunderPro in identifying the top professional traders to fund.

It is important to note that in the case of your profit/loss being in the negative, the consistency rule will not apply.

When is the Consistency Rule required and how is it calculated?

The Consistency Rule applies to all Phases of all Funded Account Challenges. Here, you have the chance to demonstrate your ability to manage risk effectively and build consistent success.

The calculation is as follows: Best Day Profit ÷ Overall Profit = Best Day % of Total Profit 

Let's illustrate this with a new example: 

Imagine a $25,000 account with a Phase 2 profit target of $2,000 (8%). The daily profit should never exceed $900, which is 45% of the profit target. Consider this scenario:

  • You reach your target and make a total profit of $2,000.
  • You earn a $1,200 profit in a single day.

Result: You do not pass the Challenge. 

To succeed, you should devise a strategy that prevents you from exceeding a $900 daily profit. Once you reach a total profit of $2,000, you will pass the Challenge as you have demonstrated that you can profit consistently without relying on risky large trades. 

Here is another example taking into consideration multiple trading days in the challenge:

5 trading days with the following results, day-by-day:

  • +$1,000
  • -$500
  • +$2,000
  • +$750
  • -$250
This results in a total P/L of $3,000. The highest profit day was the day of +$2,000, so we arrive at the following calculation and value:
$2,000 / $3,000 * 100 = ~0.667 * 100 = ~66.67% Highest Profit Day


Please note the following: The system will take a snapshot at the beginning of the day and another at the end of the day. The snapshot looks at the equity of the account. This means that profits from open trades will also be counted for the day. If you have a position open for 2 days, on day 1 it goes up $1k in profits and then he closes it on day 2 with $2k "total" profit, for the consistency rule this would be $1k on day 1 and $1k on day 2.


What is meant by the Recommended Best Day?

Given that your best trading day should remain below 45% of your total profit, we recommend that you set a daily profit target below this threshold. This strategy will help you maintain consistency and lock in daily profits.

Here are examples of recommended best day profits by account size:
