Our Buyback feature lets you get back on a funded account in minutes without taking any more challenges. Simply open a support request and let us know if you breached the daily maximum or drawdown. You’ll get to pay 60% of the drawdown limit your specific account has endured (for example, 60% of 5% daily).
Can I copy trade?
Copy trading is prohibited; you must trade your own system your way. If caught, you and your accomplice will be breached, and the account will be terminated up to and including profits.
You cannot use a “pass your account” service or have another trader trade on your behalf. The person who verified the account must conduct all activities; the purchaser must be the one who is trading.
Can I trade the news?
You cannot pass by betting big on a news event—this doesn’t show actual trading ability. Due to the volatility of these events, we cannot accurately copy traders to our live servers if they’re betting big on news events. Our system will flag and remove any profits generated on the live account two minutes prior and two minutes after a high-impact news event.
If this action is consistently repeated, your account will be breached, and you’ll need to rerun the challenge. All trades from the red folder news on ForexFactory are deemed high-impact news events.
Do you allow scaling?
Yes, we absolutely do. There are two options to scale your account:
Option 1: Leave some profit on your withdrawal date in your account. The leftover amount will help increase your daily drawdown limit.
Option 2: If you profit 5% or more on your account, you can DOUBLE your account size and forefit 5% of your withdrawal, this is a great feature for profitable traders.

How can I get my withdrawal?
Enter your withdrawal request on your account dashboard. The system automatically calculates your withdrawal based on your account type and ranking. Once the withdrawal is complete, your account will be reset.

How do I purchase a challenge?
You can pay with a credit card or cryptocurrencies (click “NowPayments” in checkout). When paying with cryptocurrencies, copy the value shown in the chosen coin, not the USD value.

What are Maven’s trading style restrictions?
Cheating: Using MetaTrader inefficiencies such as High-Frequency Trading, Toxic Trading Order Flow, Long/Short arbitrage, reverse arbitrage, tick scalping, and server execution.
Reverse/Group Hedging: Using your account to bet in one direction on a singular trade against another account, as this is an attempt at reversing the trade of another account for a 100% chance of winning.
Hedging: You cannot exclusively hedge through a challenge or live account. Numerous malicious EA hedging bots aim to exploit the demo-trading environment, and we cannot accurately copy your trading onto a live server. If we see your account is exclusively hedging, we will ask you to provide the EA you have used (if applicable).
Gambling: You cannot gamble your way through a challenge phase. Maven defines gambling as:
Taking more than 50% of your trades in under a one-minute hold time
Opening five positions in a loosing trade, encompassing both the entry and subsequent positions
risking more than 50 lots on a 100k or equivalent ratio for the account size on the live account only will lead to account termination due to high risk gambling.
Betting one direction and holding until you pass/fail
EA: EAs are permitted if they do not break the above rules. We may ask for proof of your EA to ensure that the EA you are using is not malicious. HFT, hedge zone, etc., are not permitted.
Inactivity: After 14 days of inactivity, your account will be paused. You will need to contact support to enable trading again. If you plan to not trade for 28 days, please get in touch with [email protected], and we will be able to put your account on hold.
Note: A ‘trade’ can be determined as a position held by the trader on a specific pair. ‘Trade’ may be one or multiple entries with similar timings and lot sizes. A trade could be determined by multiple entries on the same pair at the same time. Trades with vastly smaller lot sizes will NOT count as a trade. If your account is flagged, you must rerun the challenge.
Your account will be terminated if you perform any of these actions.

Your account will be terminated if you breach the daily or maximum drawdown.

What is Maven?
Welcome to Maven Trading, where we’re reshaping the prop trading landscape. Think of us as your guide to a simulated funded trader program tailor-made for all traders, regardless of experience. We’ve created a comfortable environment for you to refine your skills, making informed simulated trades under real market conditions—minus the risk to your own capital. Our distinctive 1-Step and 2-Step Evaluation Challenges make us a top-tier prop firm dedicated to helping you unlock a new level of trading expertise.
What is a simulated funded account?
Getting a simulated funded account is a great achievement! This account is traded under live conditions in the demo environment. All profits you make can be withdrawn given all of our policies were followed!
What is my profit split?
You have passed your challenge phase and are now trading a simulated funded Maven account. Congratulations! Our base level is an 80% profit split. However, this can be as high as 100%, depending on promotions.
What is the legal agreement between Maven and the customer?
All account holders must adhere to the terms in the Terms & Conditions signed when purchasing a challenge. All customers are responsible for paying taxes applicable to their place of residence.
What is your IP address policy?
Your IP address for your Phase 1, Phase 2, and live account must match the same geographical region to verify you didn’t receive outside assistance.
If we see that your IP address has changed, we will ask for proof and reasoning of why this has occurred. (Proof may involve plane tickets, live location checking through another medium, or another approach that Maven sees fit.)
What withdrawal options do you offer?
You can withdraw funds via crypto or Direct bank transfer. Crypto is the most popular option because it’s quicker and cheaper. Deel can withdraw and place funds directly into your banking account. However, we require you to have at least $1000 available in profit split. (Anything below this amount may incur additional charges.)
What’s next after I’ve passed the assessment?
Once you’ve passed the assessment, our team will review your account, which takes 1-3 days. Upon approval, you’ll receive a KYC (Know Your Customer) email through our provider, Veriff, to verify your identity.
For this process you will have to send a government issued ID and also take a selfie so we know who we do business with and comply with AML regulations.
Where is Maven Trading located?
We are registered in Canada.
Who can join Maven?
Whether you’re an established trader or just getting started, we have the resources to help you build a successful portfolio.
Why is there a profit split?
When you become a Maven trader, you acknowledge that profits are split as per the company’s Terms & Conditions. This fee helps us cover the costs needed to operate Maven and provide accessible virtual trading services.
Why should I become a Maven Funded Trader?
Becoming a trading virtuoso is a relentless challenge—countless hours perfecting skills, dissecting markets, and nailing risk management—all for a handful of profitable trades. It’s time to level up with a funded account. The stumbling block? Undercapitalization—small-time trading accounts that hold you back.
A 10% monthly yield of $1000 turns a mere $100 profit.
Trading with Maven gives you access to higher funds (and profits). Instead of a $1000 investment, imagine $200,000. Now you’ve got a $20,000 profit with $16,000 in your pocket.
But it’s not just about trading with our cash. Maven sharpens your skills with no-nonsense rules—think robust risk management minus the handcuffs on your trading decisions. You trade, and we cover the losses.
