Can I withdraw evaluation profits?

The purpose of the evaluation is for us to make sure that you are a consistent trader without any capital risk. As our evaluation is set up to test your trading without risking capital, you cannot withdraw profits on this phase.

Why do you only offer funding plans up to $200,000?

Alpicap was founded by experienced traders and liquidity risk managers. We see $200.000 as an optimal maximum amount of capital before excess levels of slippage and poor trade conditions not suited to retail traders will set in.

Does my account have to be in my name?

Yes, as we are on the lookout for individual traders and often make payouts to bank account for our live traders. As such accounts must be created in your own name. 

Do you allow news trading?

Yes, traders are allowed to trade news. We would recommend to be careful and use proper risk management.
