Good news for prop traders: we have introduced more compelling trading and challenge conditions for our OANDA Prop Trader offering.

Recent disruptions in the prop firm space may have left prop traders looking for a new, trustworthy firm to partner with. The improved challenge conditions mean that we have made the assessment more flexible, and we now offer higher profit sharing to give traders a better deal with limited downside. This is in addition to their ability to continue using Meta-based platforms and have a reliable payout system when they are owed a profit share.

From today, prop traders who complete a Challenge with OANDA Prop Trader can unlock an 80% profit share as a signal provider. We have also reduced the profit targets for our Challenge qualification stage and waived the minimum number of trading days, so skilled traders could now pass the challenge and become signal providers in as little as two to three days.

Here’s what the advantages of the new trading conditions look like

  • Profit targets of 8% in the first assessment phase.
  • No minimum trading days to qualify.
  • Profit sharing of 80% once onboarded as an OANDA Prop Trader.
  • Leverage of 100:1.
  • Prop traders receive their profit share AND a refund of their challenge fees on the first payout in their OANDA Global Markets' account.

We believe that these changes will allow us to provide even more talented prop traders with an opportunity to thrive in the financial markets.

We’re constantly listening to our prop traders and reviewing our offering so we can give them the most competitive conditions possible. Next, we plan to introduce new and exciting Challenges to cater to a variety of trading styles and appetites for risk.
