During the Evaluation and Funded stages, your account will be subject to a Relative Max Drawdown of 6% based on the initial account balance. This means that the maximum drawdown allowed will be 6% below your account balance, until you either reach the Profit Target or the drawdown level reaches the starting account balance.

Let's illustrate this with an example. Suppose you start with a $100,000 account, and your initial Max Drawdown is set at $6,000, which is 6% of the account balance. If your balance increases to $103,000, your Max Drawdown level will be adjusted to $97,000 (6% below $103,000). Should your equity drop below this level at any time, your account will be terminated.

On the other hand, if your balance reaches $106,000, your Max Drawdown level will remain at $100,000 and will no longer trail your balance. Even if your balance later increases to $112,000, your Max Drawdown level will stay fixed at $100,000.

### How does relative drawdown affect One Step Funded Account Payouts?

Example 1: Suppose you start with a $100,000 account, and your Daily Drawdown is 3.5%, while the max trailing is 6%. Your Daily Drawdown limit is $96,500, and your max trailing limit is $94,000. If you earn an $8,000 profit and request a $6,000 withdrawal, your max drawdown will be fixed at $100,000 since your account has reached 6%. This leaves you with only a 2% buffer for max drawdown.

Example 2: Let's say you initiate a $100,000 account with a Daily Drawdown of 3.5% and a max trailing of 6%. Your Daily Drawdown threshold is $96,500, and your max trailing threshold is $94,000. If you generate a $15,000 profit and request an $8,000 withdrawal, your max drawdown will be set at $100,000 due to the 6% threshold. This provides you with a $7,000 buffer until the max drawdown at $100,000.

Example 3: Consider a $100,000 account with a Daily Drawdown of 3.5% and a max trailing of 6%. The Daily Drawdown limit is $96,500, and the max trailing limit is $94,000. If you make a $6,000 profit and request a $6,000 withdrawal, your max drawdown will be locked at $100,000 since your account has reached the 6% threshold. However, in this scenario, you will fail your account as you have left no buffer, and your account has reached the max drawdown.
