7. Commodity Futures Trading Commission Disclaimer

CFTC Rule 4.41 – Hypothetical Performance Results

The content of the Sites and Services includes important disclaimers in accordance with CFTC Rule 4.41:

Hypothetical or simulated performance results have inherent limitations. Unlike actual performance records, simulated results do not reflect real trading. Since simulated trades are not executed in reality, these results might over- or under-compensate for the influence of certain market factors, such as liquidity shortage. Simulated or hypothetical trading programs are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will achieve profits or losses similar to those shown.

The Sites and Services encompass a range of offerings, including tools for simulated exchange trading, analytical resources, educational materials, and other ancillary services. While financial market information is utilized in simulated trading, it’s crucial to recognize that any trading conducted through the Services is not genuine trading.

You also acknowledge that the funds provided to you for Simulated Trading are fictitious and hold no real-world value. These fictitious funds are solely intended for use within the context of the Sites and Services, and they may not be employed for actual trading. You are not entitled to possess or utilize these fictitious funds for any purposes beyond their designated scope within the Sites and Services. Unless expressly specified otherwise, you will not receive any remuneration or profits based on the outcomes of your fictitious trading activities. Similarly, you will not be liable to cover any losses resulting from such simulated trading.

8. Aero Trading®

Failure to do so will result in the termination of service provision, without entitlement to a fee refund.

To successfully graduate from the Aero Trading®, you must meet all profit targets while adhering to applicable Trading Rules and account parameters specific to your Account and the respective Aero Trading®. These parameters are subject to adjustments and changes without prior notice. You can find the current Trading Rules and account parameters schedule detailed here.

Failure to fulfill the conditions outlined above during the Aero Trading® will result in an unsuccessful evaluation, and no fee refund will be provided. If you wish to continue Simulated Trading, you’ll need to reset for a new Simulated Account at the prevailing rates.

Upon successfully graduating from the Aero Trading®, you will be presented with the opportunity to either secure funding with TopstepFunded’s trading capital or progress to an alternative product or service provided by Winbance (as determined at Winbance’s sole discretion).

Engaging in trading activities within the Aero Trading® that knowingly or unknowingly circumvent targets and rules, or generate profits that wouldn’t be attainable in live market trading, constitutes a breach of the Terms.

In the event of such behavior, Winbance retains the right to reject claims of progression or advancement in the Aero Trading®, rendering your Account ineligible, and preventing further use of any of Winbance’s Sites or Services. If you are found to have profited from exploiting the simulated environment for an unfair advantage during or after progressing past the Aero Trading®, or if you are found to have engaged in other Prohibited Conduct (as defined below), you will not be entitled to any withdrawals from other accounts maintained with Winbance. All such accounts will be closed, and any funds will be forfeited immediately.

  • Utilizing trading strategies aimed at exploiting or generating errors in the Services, such as manipulating price displays or causing delays in their updates.
  • Employing trading strategies that involve disruptive practices (as determined by Winbance’s sole discretion), including but not limited to spoofing strategies.
  • Executing an excessive or unrealistic number of contracts within a day.
  • Conducting trades outside the best bid or offer.
  • Executing trades using an external or slow data feed.
  • Engaging in trades that manipulate, abuse, or provide an unfair advantage, either alone or in collaboration with others, such as entering opposite positions or high-frequency trades.

  • Using instruments that disrupt the operation of the Site and Services or misuse errors, bugs, or other deficiencies.
  • Circumventing geographical or technical restrictions.
  • Holding a position within 3% of a product’s lock limit.
  • Trading on behalf of others, including sharing incentives as part of any business arrangement.

Products may be traded during normal electronic trading hours, unless stated otherwise. If the Net P&L hits or exceeds the Daily Loss Limit during the trading day (5:00 PM CT-3:10 PM CT), the account will face a soft breach and will be auto-liquidated for the remainder of the current trading session. This will involve flattening open trading positions, canceling pending orders, and preventing the placement of new trades until the start of the next trading day (5:00 PM CT).

Trading is permissible only during normal electronic trading hours, unless otherwise communicated by Winbance. All positions must be closed before 3:10 PM CT or prior to market close, whichever comes first. Traders are allowed to trade only permitted products by Winbance. For more details, please refer to our help center.

Excessive or unrealistic single-day trades or profits will be subject to review by Winbance for possible violations of these Terms, Trading Rules, Prohibited Conduct, or Prohibited Uses.

If, in its sole discretion, Winbance determines that a User has violated any Trading Rules or engaged in Prohibited Conduct, Winbance may remove Simulated Account profits, delete trading days, reset Accounts, or ban Users from further use of the Site and Services. If trading activity related to Prohibited Conduct is identified, Winbance reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to delete trading days and profits, or restart or close the Account. Winbance may also ban Users from using all or part of the Sites and Services.
