Frequently Asked Questions

Do I get a Demo or Live Account?

During the One Foot In Level, a Demo account will be given to you initially to hasten the process while we will need time to configurate your live account as well as for our compliance team to do KYC checks.

While trading "One Foot In", you will be contacted via email for KYC purposes. We will require you to furnish us your documents in order for our compliance team to perform KYC checks and subsequently sending you our Contract Agreement. We will allow you to trade our Live BuoyTrade Account after your first scale up, KYC approval and contract signing.

How do I make payment?

Click on the [Pay] Button to make payment. If we received your payment during our business hours, Our account credentials will be sent to you within 1 business day. Your information will be recorded via the information you shared with our payment service gateway during payment.

Please check your information, especially your email address!

Where do I email when I reach 5% profit?

Email: compliance@buoytrade.com
State that you have reached 5% and would like a scale up, we will take care of the rest.

How do I refer a friend?

You need to be trading with us first to receive the reward.
When your friend signs up, your friend need to email to us via our Contact Us page

Information needed:
Provide the MT4 number to your friend so they know where you want your reward to be credited to when they email us.

Basically, your MT4 ID is your affiliate number. Both you are your friend will receive $5 in the account once processed.
Please do not share your password with your friend.

Copy Trading? Signal Provider Copy? are they allowed?

We do not restrict such copy feature, You may copy from your own account, friends or even signal provider.
Please do your own research before copying others, BuoyTrade does not bear any responsibility.

What is the minimum profit split?

Withdrawal of profit splits are free if the amount is USD30 and above.
Otherwise an administration fee of USD12 applies.

This is to avoid overloading the BuoyTrade's Processing Team with smaller withdrawals, as the transfer fee will cost more than the withdrawal itself.

What is the scaling like? Is it doubled every stage? Do I need to hit any minimum days?

Yes, when the target profit is reached, your account will be doubled from your initial level balance.

You may scale up the account on day 1 of trading. There's no minimum trading days required to scale up the account.

What do you mean by Target Profit 5% and 10%?

We offer this option to scale up faster as some traders deemed that $1,000 is not significant yet! We totally understand!

If you do not withdraw your profit at Target Profit 5%, we will scale your account to the next level.

At any point if you decide to withdraw at that level, your target profit will be at 10% in order to scale to the next level.

Please do contact us if you have decided that you want to scale up at 5%. Our default target profit will be always be 10%.

What happen if I failed at higher levels? Can I continue to trade the same level?

We would like to first congratulate you for making it that far. Yes, there is a way to at least recover back some of the levels and not needing to restart all over again from the start.

Our recovery process:
You will drop your level by half, and you will need to pay a fixed desk fee.

Example (recovery process):
You are at level 5, Your level is cut by half, Level 2.5. We will always round up the level, you may start back off at level 3 at this point.

At Level 3, you will get back your Level 3 Account.
note: You are eligible to also start off at any levels below Level 3 if you would like to.

Recovery One Time Desk Fee:
Level 1: $105
Level 2: $210
Level 3: $420
Level 4: $840
Level 5: $1680

This offer is only valid up to 1 month, the time starts on the date you have violated the drawdown rule.

How is the Maximum Drawdown/Loss calculated?

Let's get right on with it with an example!

Let's say for an example you are trading a $100,000 Account and you manage to make a profit of 5%, your account ending balance would be $105,000.
Your Maximum Drawdown/Loss is calculated to be $5,000 (5% x $100,000 = $5,000).

This means at any point in time, your Account (realized/unrealized) balance or equity should not go below $95,000.

When you have a $105,000 Capital, you basically have a $10,000 capital of free-play before it reaches the max drawdown limit.

Does Global Prime(broker) have Spreads from 0.0 pips?

Global Prime has spreads from 0.0 pips with no restrictions and operates an ECN/STP model with no B-book. Global Prime prove this with trade receipts rather than fancy marketing terms.

What are the leverages on the Buoy Direct account?

The official leverage on our account is 5:1 for Forex and 2.5:1 for Metals in Global Prime.

To help start you off your trading journey with us, you will receive an increased 10:1 Leverage [Forex only] for the $1,000 "One Foot In" level.

Where can I find the average spreads?

You can find the average spreads of our broker at table here: Trading Spread Page

Max Account per trader?

You can manage up to 10 Active Buoy Direct Accounts with us at any point.
This allows you to diversify and maintain a steady stream of profit split still if one account were to violate the drawdown rules.

How often do you process payout?

Payout is processed every 2 weeks. You may keep your profits inside the account if you wish to. We will always withdraw our profit split every 2 weeks.

We will not withdraw any profits unless you request a withdrawal in "One Foot In" level.

How are you different than others in this industry?

Radical transparency, our A-Book broker doesn't trade against you. We are aiming to be a premium online proprietary firm in the industry, we like to keep it that way.

What is your scaling plan?

Please refer to the table above in this page specifically for our scaling plan.

What is a minimum active day?

We do not like to keep dormant accounts within our firm, as they take up server load for statistical calculations. It also helps us to know if you are still alive and trading.

It is not a hard violation if you do not make at least 1 trade during that week. If something unfortunate happened and you could not trade because of medical reasons, do inform us when you are back. We will understand and reinstate the account if the reason is substantiated with valid evidence / documents.

What is considered as "Active"?
Basically opening or closing a position counts as one active day, You do not need to Open and Close. Just one of the action is enough to count as an active day. So when you open a position on Week1, That's already counted as an active day. You do not need to close.
On Week2, if you close the same position, it's also counted as an active day for the entire week.
Taking partial profits is also considered as "Active"

If you fall under the category of 'reason not valid', you'll need to pay a reinstatement fee, which is 2% of the current account level to reinstate your account.

What are BuoyReward and BuoyCoin?!

It's a feature that we would like to release in the very near future! Traders can trade and collect BuoyCoins, and redeem them through BuoyReward.

BuoyReward is a reward programme that gives traders the benefits to redeem items and prizes using BuoyCoins.

BuoyCoins are the points used for exchanging items or prizes such as Apple products, Chairs, Trader Desk, Monitors, Mouse, Keyboards and Mounts etc. just to name a few. These items will be shipped over to you!

How do you get BuoyCoins? Through trading of course, you'll be rewarded with BuoyCoins when you open and close a position in our accounts.

That's the summary of it. More details will be released further down the road. It'll be real soon, we promise!
