DFX specialises in creating innovative, value-added advisory, funding, trading and principal direct investing solutions in FX and CFDs. At DFX we focus on helping you become the best trader you can be. We offer coaching & courses that are designed to help you learn to trade FX and CFD markets regardless of the market condition, as well as the tools built to guide you and improve your trading skills and results.
With over 30 years of combined trading experience we actively trade the firms’ capital as well as teach people like you how to be a successful professional trader. Experienced traders may still complete our fast-track assessment, who must disclose their strategy preference ahead of funding - can either be momentum, or fair value or carry strategies (trend following or mean reversion preferences must still be disclosed upfront). Our Trader Assessment model is designed to help turn trainees into a successful proprietary trader and provide experienced traders platform to explore larger trading book, while not requiring you to provide your trading capital.
We trade our own capital, giving us the flexibility to advance our objectives without the encumbrances of any investor demand. DFX is a privately-held, globally positioned trading firm.
DFX doesn’t seek outside investment and doesn’t have clients or customers; and neither does the firm solicit or accept retail orders from Retail Customers. We recruit both experienced traders and trainees. We provide 100% of all trading capital, within bespoke risk controls and in-house money management rules. We are focused on seeking out trading and investment opportunities to grow our capital in the global financial markets.
We don't use demos. We start off day one with £200 in a funded live account, working it upwards to £1,000 and £100,000 range for first 8 weeks depending on the skills and performance of the trader. Trading capital size in excess of £50m can be provided to talented, skilled and performing traders - the better trader you are, the higher the trading funds allocation.
We believe greatly in our core values transparency, trustworthiness, team-work and aggressive risk management of our private funds, by spreading the risk of our funds over a team of traders and trading strategies.
Get paid from the first month, while you proof and validate your skills. Payouts start from traders taking home 20% of monthly profits, using our capital. Rates can be negotiated up to 50% depending on performance. We generally pay traders on the fifth business of day of the following month.
Our specially designed software will track your progress at your home, the office or on the move while our automated risk manager is constantly running to enforce trader discipline, through the use of strict system trader enforcement rules. Our risk management protocols include rigorous internal controls, limits and scenario analysis.
