Hello everyone. I'm new on this forum. i have been trading forex forabout 3 years now and recently learnt about Prop Funds and how they provide funding for retail traders like us. I never knew such an opportunity like this could even be possible where one can access funding remotely. But i do notice that it is not so common and some could be a scam but i dont know which.
I thought i should post a list of companies i could manage to find out in my bid to find one to work with. Any feedback would be appreciated as i do my research. Have you heard of anyone on the list and are they legit?
Thanks.

I have trading experience with TopStep and BluFX.
I use Topstep for Futures trading and Blufx for forex.
I started out my journey in futures before entering Forex.
I have taken a break with Futures this year though. For now it's just Forex

Well, they are still existing so i guess a lot of people.Have you found the one you would want to work with?
There seems to be a lot of them to pick from.
Information overload is where i'm at right now. I feel overwhelmed by the plethora of choices.

Hey. Maybe your experience over time could help me in my decision making at this point in time.
Topstep has their Forex arm from my research so how come you didn't use them for both Futures and Forex but instead went for BluFX?

Diversification. I didn't want to put all my eggs in one basket. Yeah, i know you might be thinking the subscription fee isn't that much to deserve such skepticism.
Second of all i didn't want to continue with the concept of passing a challenge after i got to know of BluFX. igot a real account and started trading right away!

Well, yes. Skepticism will save you from lots of scams in Forex. No money is too small. I try not to let it stop me from taking risks but i don't take careless risks.
I come to earn forex and other forums to inquire and find out before making some forex decisions.
I wish i liked Futures. I would have also traded both.
Did you ever get payment delays with these Blufx guys or even no payment at all after withdrawing?

Just stay with what you have an affinity for. Every opportunity isnt for everyone.
Yes. I get my payment whenever i hit the 5% minimum and withdraw. Payouts are done once in a month. I have seen some people complain about delays but those are people who choose to be paid by bank wire transfer and that takes 3-10 days depending on their bank. I dont have time to wait that long when there are other faster alternatives.
I have also seen few complaints about incomplete payment but that's an accounting issue and it gets attended to.

Ok. Thx.
They say one has to verify their documents when subscribing. I'm wondering if anyone gets bounced for incomplete documents and if a refund is possible in such a case. Otherwise i would even prefer to verify before subscribing. How did you do yours?

Yes. Its similar to opening an account with a broker. Remember they are giving you a funded forex account. You can verify first. The choice is yours, but so long as you have successfully opened an account with a broker then you should have no issues.

Thank you. I have verified and signed up. But i signed up for the $25000 account and would like to upgrade as i am not a day trader and would like to hold my trades overnight. I have sent a mail and hopefully they respond fast.

Nice one. Congratulations bro! I hope the process was smooth for you.
Ok. I guess you didnt read the package types properly and decide according to your trading strategy. Just give them 1-2business working days before reaching out again if you dont get a reply. But for a case like this, you should have gotten a reply by now.

Good day. I am doing my findings about Blufx. Do they really give a real account?
The others i have seen all give demo accounts. I just want to be sure.

Yeah. These guys are different. They give real accounts. You'd login to a real server and not a demo server

I was able to hit like 6.3% with blufx and I'm yet to receive my payout which i had requested for before the deadline. Does it take this long? I'm worried. Although my choice of payment method was bank wire transfer.

Not at all. Just pay, verify your documents and start trading. I recently gave them a shot. So far so good I guess.
