You are free to trade any news events during the Phase-1 and the Phase-2 of the evaluation for E8, and ELEV8 as long as you are aware of the risks involved with a slippage.

To clarify, you can trade news and it will not be a direct violation. However, you should understand that there are occurrences where slippages occur and that the trader is ultimately responsible should one cause a violation of the max loss rules.

We cannot guarantee any profits generated during such high-risk news events and we cannot protect you from any losses taken because the trades may not actually fill or may fill causing a loss once connected to our Proprietary Trading Firms live capital account. Therefore, it is best to avoid trading during high-impact news releases, but it is not a violation.
