News Trading rules on E8 Track account

Updated over a week ago

Users are free to simulate trades on any news events from their E8 Trader account and during Phase-1 and Phase-2 of the evaluation for E8 and E8 Track. However, because the provided simulated platform tracks real-world markets, users must be aware of the risks associated with slippage. To clarify, it is not a direct violation of E8โ€™s rules for a user to trade on news on the provided simulated platform. However, users should be aware that slippages may occur (as they would if this was a live market) and that the user is ultimately responsible should a slippage cause it to violate the max loss rules. E8 cannot guarantee any profits generated during such high-risk news events, nor can it protect users from any losses taken because the trades may not actually fill, or may fill causing a loss on your simulated account. E8โ€™s simulated platform is designed to mimic live trading account conditions; just as slippage is a risk in a real market, it also is a risk on our simulated platform that tracks the live markets. Therefore, we recommend that users avoid trading during high-impact news releases.
