WHO IS SURGETRADER?
We are a global prop trading firm, based in the United States, helping traders around the world earn better profits on their trading skill. The SurgeTrader program was built with the following cornerstones:
Simple, straightforward trading rules
No time limits
World-class customer support
The firm and our trader community carry deep venture capital backing from our partner Valo Holdings. Thus, the company’s finances are stable and secure — and capital investments are deployed with the objective of long-term success, rather than short-term gain.
SURGETRADER AT A GLANCE
SurgeTrader is headquartered in the heart of beautiful downtown Naples, Florida in the United States of America.
All trader accounts are managed through ASIC-regulated broker EightCap.
TRANSPARENT & TRUSTWORTHY
To foster trust with the trader community, SurgeTrader remains transparent and open. Have a question? Just ask.
We’ve all heard the stories of great companies that got their start in a garage or among friends in a college dorm. The SurgeTrader origin story isn’t all that different and began with an innocent conversation in a Naples sushi restaurant between an FX broker, institutional trader and venture capitalist.
The conversation, as it often does, turned to the markets and business and, finally, a discussion around why most speculative traders fail. The group realized that the reason is not lack of talent or poor risk management, but the need to overleverage trading accounts to make a meaningful return for the time invested by the trader. Sure, a 30% per annum return on investment is great for your retirement portfolio – when it’s passive. But a 30% return on a $5,000 trading account is just $125 per month – and it takes countless hours behind the screen to make that happen. So, traders resort to utilizing massive leverage, as high as 500:1. While this can allow the trader to make an outsized return on investment, it leaves almost no room to take losses and avoid margin calls.
So how do we solve this problem? How can we harness the talent of good traders and put them into a position to succeed at trading for a living. The answer is not with gimmicky strategies or promises of a holy-grail algorithm. It’s capital. If we can identify traders that possess a talent for navigating the markets and displaying sound risk management, the only missing piece is enough capital to keep them from overtrading.
Thus, the SurgeTrader program was born. Backed by venture capital and developed by experienced market professionals, the Audition and funding process that is SurgeTrader began to take shape and a win-win model was created.
WHAT OUR TRADERS SAY
The Best Prop Firm...
I have traded with other prop firms before but SurgeTrader is by far the best. Very friendly support and fast in answering questions. Not too many rules and just one phase audition.
Straightforward rules and expectations. Learned new ways of trading by following them as well, which was surprisingly a good way to proceed in the trading career.
So far my experience has been great! Everything from starting my audition to the fast response from support when I passed was seamless. I look forward to working with SurgeTrader.
SurgeTrader is a Great Firm
I've been trading for about 3 years and i can easily say that SurgeTrader is the best quick access proprietary firm in the business. Easy rules, affordable Audition, phenomenal customer service, and great spreads.
