Professional Account

Terms and Conditions

General Setup

Traders will be able to subscribe to Platinum Accounts after they successfully trade and achieve 10% profit with a Professional account and cleared by risk team.

Traders who are offered AO (Account option) with option to upgrade after achieving 10% on Basic/Professional account can upgrade only when approved and the subscription of new account only takes effect when the current subscription expires. Upgrade cannot take place within a live subscription.

Remote traders are compensated on a profit split basis only. You keep 50% of your profits once (and only when) you hit your target of 5%.

There is a 5% draw-down on the account for all remote traders, which leads to account closure.

Fund request can be made multiple times within a month. Request must be made by 20th of each month to be paid by 25th of the same month.

Any live account that has been allocated to a trader and hasn’t hit a drawdown limit but has been dormant for 6 months will be permanently closed and inaccessible.

Profit Withdrawals

50/50 profit split ratio shared between Stochastic Africa and Implementing partners and the trader.

All withdrawals are based on 5% profit blocs.

That means for the $25,000 account, you can withdraw in blocks of $1250. A trader can withdraw in multiples of $1250 as many times they so wish as long as it is within their profit share. 

a)       BANKING, WITHDRAWAL REQUESTS & TOP-UPS

                  i.                        We now encourage all traders to bank their profits by processing “fund request” at https://stochasticafrica.com/withdrawal-requests/ anytime they have at least 5% growth in their trading account.  This protects withdrawn amounts for the trader but also encourages traders not to take excessive risks with the capital left in the trading account. We automatically bank the first 5% profit on a new account on behalf of traders.

               ii.                        A trader can withdraw/ bank multiple times as they wish up to the 20th of every month for the traders share of 50% to be paid to trader on the 25th of the same month. All requests made after 20th of a month will be processed and paid the following month.

            iii.                        If trader banks their withdrawal funds, and is in need for additional funds in their trading account for any reason, they can request via email to accounts@stochasticafrica.com for funds to be credited in their trading account, provided their share of profits has not yet been transferred to their personal accounts on the 25th. In such scenario, the maximum that can be transferred back into the trading account is trader’s 50% share as the fund owners will retain their share of 50%.

b) MINIMUM ACCOUNT NET EQUITY BALANCE

A trader’s trading account must not have a net equity of less than -2.5% of account size, on the 25th of the month which is date of payment for profits withdrawn to be paid (for eg., on a $25k account, the balance or net equity must not be less than -$625 on the 25th when funds requested are paid out) .

If not, trader has the following options:

                      i.                       wait until the next accounting period and ensure account balance or net equity not less than -2.5%  of account size(>= -$625 for $25k accounts) by date of payment;

                  ii.                        request to transfer from the banked profits back into trading account to bring its net equity balance to at least >=-2.5%. Then any extra funds remaining from the trader’s share can be processed to go into traders account on the 25th.  Since we do everything in blocks of 5%, then any instruction for payment to or from banked profit will be in blocks of 50% (5% of account) which is trader’s share.

  

c)5% ACCOUNT LOSS

Once a trader hits the maximum drawdown of 5% on an account, account will be closed and trader will not be accepted again in our program.

 

 Capital Management Increases

There is capital management increase for traders who achieve 10% growth on the account. The 10% profit has to be retained in our vault account when account size is moved from one level to the other. All additional profits can be withdrawn normally. They will be able to apply for and get a Platinum ($50,000) account subject to Risk Assessment Approval.
