Note: The DXTrade platform is available exclusively to U.S. citizens and nationals; cTrader is for international customers only

Overview

Expert Advisors (EA's) are strictly prohibited in 2-Phase challenges (Regular and Swing), both in the initial and subsequent phases. The use of algorithms is also prohibited for competition accounts and will result in an automatic failure or violation of the user's account.

These restrictions apply to all Competition and Standard accounts (Regular and Swing).

However, there is an exception for Apollo 11 accounts, where the use of Expert Advisors is allowed (except on the DXTrade platform) in both their test phase and simulated funded account. For more information regarding Apollo 11 accounts and the use of Expert Advisors click here.

In summary, the use of EA's and algorithms is prohibited in 2-Phase challenges and competition accounts, except in Apollo 11 accounts, where the use of Expert Advisors is allowed (except on the DXTrade platform).
