At FundedNext, we empower traders worldwide with diverse strategies and optimal benefits. Our robust trading solution is constantly updated to meet evolving demands and deliver unparalleled support. We are committed to providing the best trading experience on our platform.
One of the precautionary rules that FundedNext introduced is the News Rule Restrictions.
The rule is: “You can trade during the news without restrictions in the Evaluation Model’s assessment phases (phases 1 and 2). But once you receive the real account, as the market is exceptionally volatile during news times and also because this is the most likely time when slippages can occur, you are not allowed to open or close any trade for 2 minutes before and after the news. This includes market execution and opening/closing pending orders (including take profit and stop loss).”
This has been one of the persistent demands from our trading community to revise this rule. In response to your request, News Trading is Now Allowed in the FundedNext Evaluation Model.
News trading will now be allowed in the Evaluation phases (phases 1 and 2) and Real account. You can trade during the High or Low impact News periods without worrying about your account getting breached. Traders will be eligible to receive payouts for any profits earned from news trades. All Evaluation real accounts will be able to trade during news and will be subject to this rule, regardless of when they joined FundedNext.
To provide further clarification, if you presently find yourself in Phase 1, Phase 2, or holding a Funded Account within our Evaluation Model, we are pleased to inform you that you may begin trading during News events effective immediately, without any concerns or limitations.
As always, we encourage you to trade responsibly and stay informed about market conditions. Our team is here to provide any support or guidance you may need along the way.
Please note that news trading will still not be allowed in the Express Demo and Real accounts, and the existing rules will remain the same.
To summarize, If you trade during the news and are in profit, you will receive the profit share from news trading, plus your account will not be terminated.
