Why does Apiary Fund close out my account at 2% and 5% risk?

We have an automatic risk management software that will close all trades on an account if it reaches a loss of 5%. The account is then automatically reactivated after 24 hours. These rules are enforced in both the simulated and funded trading accounts. If your cumulative losses exceed 5% of what your balance was at 0:00 GMT, it will close all the trades and be disabled until it is automatically reactivated after 24 hours.

The following are actions that will cause an account to be disabled

  • 5% loss in the account balance in an accumulative loss (24 hours)
  • 50% of account balance was used as a margin

The following will automatically close a trade

  • 2% loss in the account balance in a single trade
