Who Can Trade with Us?

Elite Trader Funding is proud to support a global community of traders. However, due to regulations imposed by our US FCMs (Futures Commission Merchant), clearing firms, and brokers, we are unable to accept traders who are citizens or residents of certain countries. 

In addition, Office of Foreign Assets Control restrictions might restrict our brokerage partners from legally providing you with an account. Please note that if you are a citizen from one of these prohibited countries, you will not be able to receive payouts nor obtain funding through Elite Trader Funding.

The list of prohibited countries below and our policies are subject to change based on regulatory updates, OFAC restrictions, as well as changes from our brokerage and clearing partners. Please check back regularly for the most current information.
