Rules of the Leeloo Challenge

Trailing Drawdown at Leeloo Trading

Remember that the trailing drawdown at Leeloo Trading challenge never stops, not like the trailing drawdown on their paid-performance account. Except for the Glide offer, you only have to respect a static max loss.

Trailing drawdown on Leeloo challenge explained:

Let’s take for example the account size of 100000$:

  • The trailing drawdown for a 100000$ account is 3000$, so you must not reach your minimum account balance which is 97000$ (100000 $ – 3000 $ = 97000 $).
  • If your account balance has reached 102000$ at any moment during an open position, then your minimum account balance now is 99000$ (102000 $ – 3000 $ = 99000 $).
  • If your account balance returns to 100000 $ at any moment during an open position, your minimum account balance is still 99000$, it doesn’t go back.
  • If your account balance has reached 108000$ at any moment during an open position, then your minimum account balance is now 105000 $.
  • If your account balance has reached your minimum account balance at any moment during an open position, your account will be closed.
  • The trailing drawdown is calculated intra-trade, not in closed profit.
