KickStart’s Forex Trader Funding Program

We are serious traders...

...on an unrelenting mission to find, cultivate, and ultimately fund serious traders.

No multiple stages. No minimum position counts or trading days. No maximums either. Simple, straightforward, and fair assessments. REAL, live funded trading accounts, and you keep 75% of profits monthly.

EAs & Trade Copiers allowed, and you can start with anything from $25K to $1 Million USD.

Welcome to the Future of Trader Funding.

KickStart's Trader Funding Program is Different.

And no, we’re not just saying that. 

Our approach is simple – Prove you can generate 10%, without losing more than 5%, or 4% per day. That’s it. No combines, challenges, multiple-stages, and no restraints on your time, style, or strategy; just pure trading and pure profits. 

Speaking of profits, you keep 75%…

Serious Traders Wanted

We’re serious traders who are serious about finding and developing serious traders.

So, we’ve developed a funding program designed to help us do just that – 

No minimum position counts, trading days, combines, multiple-stages, or any other silly rules to hinder your style – Just trade profitably and consistently, without going beyond the drawdown and daily drawdown allowances.

That’s it – let’s not overcomplicate things.

Keep What You’ve Earned

75% Trader Profit Share

You leverage your trading skills, we’ll leverage the capital. 

Considering that you’re the one doing the work, it’s only right that you should keep what you’ve earned…

That’s why we offer one of the best profit splits in the industry – you keep 75%!

More profits = More Drawdown. More Drawdown = More Freedom. 

Maximum Drawdown Lock-In™

Our Maximum Drawdown Lock-In Feature, allows you to lock your equity stop out (ESO) level to your starting balance once you’ve generated a min. 5% net profit, so that, provided you do not lose more than 4% per day, the more profits you generate, the more drawdown allowance you afford yourself.

For example, if you started with $100K USD, your Equity Stop Out (ESO) Level would be $95K USD (5% of 100k). If you were to grow the account to $104K, your ESO Level would be $99K USD. 

But, once you’ve hit $105K USD with the account, your ESO will be locked in at $100K USD, and it will not move beyond this point, no matter how much your profits do!

Balance at $145K? Your MDD is still locked in at $100K! 

Full Performance Analytics. Full Visibility. Full of Possibilities. 

Success Isn't Accidental

It requires a plan. But that’s only part of it. 

You’ll also need to be able to measure your performance against that plan. Our state-of-the-art technology package included with every account helps you to do just that. 

Your comprehensive trader dashboard will show you everything you need to know, including your progress toward qualification, distance from your DD thresholds, Your last-snapped High Watermark (HWM), a reminder of the few program rules we do have, and even your projected annual return all in one clean, consolidated platform.

Knowledge is power.

Optional Upgrades

At checkout, when you are signing up for your assessment, you’ll have the option to upgrade your account with any or all of the features below. Next to each feature, the amount of the fee to upgrade is listed, for example, if you were to sign up for a $25K account, and you wanted to purchase the S/L Exemption, it would be an additional $25 (10% of $250).

Stop/Loss Exemption (+10%)

By default, each of our accounts requires that you place a Stop/Loss at the time of execution for each new trade placed. With this upgrade, we waive this requirement so that you can get into the markets faster. This is especially useful if you’re trading with an EA that doesn’t do this automatically, we’ve got you covered!

Double Leverage (+25%)

Each new position opened carries certain margin requirmements. Leverage affects the number of concurrent positions you are able to have open at any given time, as a general rule of thumb, the more leverage you have, the more concurrent positions you can open – something that can work for you sure, but be careful, it can also work against you! 

Weekend Holding (+10%)

Are you a swing trader, who doesn’t like the idea of having to close all open and pending oders by Friday at 8:45pm EST? No problem at all – now you can upgrade your account. When you can add this feature, you are adding the ability to hold your positions through the weekend. No need to close anything before you’re ready!

There are Huge Benefits to Becoming a Fully-Funded KickStart Trader

Simple Rules.

Don’t lose more than 4% in a day, or 5% overall. 

Flatten over the weekend (but feel free to hold overnight).

Always use a Stop/Loss, and generate a minimum of 10% to qualify. Simple!

No Time Constraints.

We don’t believe in undue pressure – so, whether it takes you 1 week or 1 month is irrelevant.

We only care that you can trade profitably and consistently – we do NOT care how quickly you can do it. 

By the way, neither should you – Profit is Profit!

75% Profit-Share.

You bring your trading skills, we’ll bring the capital. 

Considering you’re the one doing the work – it’s only right you should keep what you’ve earned…

That’s why we offer one of the best splits in the industry – you keep 75%!

Trade Your Own Style.

You Understand how you trade best. Why would we try to change that? 

With KickStart, you’re free to trade as you trade – all we ask is that you flatten over the weekend, and stick within our risk guidelines. 

Outside of that: scalpers, swing traders, intra-day – all are welcome!

Full Performance Analytics.

Our State-of-the-art technology means you’ve got full visibility, and therefore, full control, of your performance at all times. 

All advanced performance analytics are collated on the user dashboard, and can be accessed by both our traders and coaches to greatly increase efficiency. 

Knowledge is power.


>100x Your Investment.

Our affordable fees are only charged once as you sign up for your evaluation. 

They’re designed to be the equivalent of less than 1% of your trading account’s balance, so that, rather than starting with some arbitrary number, you are trading with 100x your investment, from day one. 

There are no additional fees, ever. 


The KickStart Trader Funding Program uses the MetaTrader 4 (MT4) platform, exclusively. MT4 is the platform of choice for the majority of Forex brokers and traders globally. For analysis, we use TradingView. 

Yes. We aren’t bothered so much with things like which strategy you’re using or what individual trading style you have. The only thing we really care most about is that you are deploying good risk management practices (always trade w/ a S/L!) and trading for consistent profits.

Share this incredible opportunity with other traders you know who are looking to kickstart their trading careers!
