As you can see from the list above there are some prop trading firms with no minimum trading days on any of their funded accounts and others firms that do not impose minimum days on some accounts but do so on others:

In the first group we have Fidelcrest (check here our Fidelcrest review) where there are no trading day restrictions on any account or Surgetrader (see in-depth review of Surgetrader). In this prop firm, the evaluation process (SurgeTrader Audition) is a one-stage process, the trading rules are simple and as soon as you reach the 10% profit target without breaching the risk criteria, you move on to manage an account funded with real money.

In the case of FTUK there are no minimum days either on the evaluation accounts (you start on a demo account) or on the instant funding accounts where you start on a real account from the very first moment. In this link you can see which are the best prop firms with instant funding.

Funded Trading Plus has no time limits, no minimum or maximum trading days on any of its accounts and offers a wide range of programs with 1 or 2-step evaluation or the no challenge Master program with instant funding.

Finally we have E8 Funding which is a prop firm with 3 different programmes (E8 Accounts, E8 Track and ELEV8 Accounts), all of them with no minimum days, which are adapted to various types of traders. For example the access fees on the E8 Track accounts are lower but the evaluation process is usually longer as it is divided into 3 steps. If you want to see a price comparison here are the cheapest prop firms.

In the second group we have The Funded Trader (The Funded Trader review), in which there are no min trading days in the Rapid challenge or Knight challenge accounts but there are in the Standard challenge (3 days minimum) and Royal challenge (5 days minimum) and City Traders Imperium with no minimum time in Direct Funding (no evaluation) and the Instant funding programme.

Other of the main and best known proprietary trading firms on the market unfortunately impose minimum days and therefore cannot be included in this table. These are the cases of:

Topstep: Minimum of 5 trading days in step 1 and no min days in step 2 of the Trading Combine evaluation programme. Here you can see the features of TopstepTrader.

FTMO: You must trade at least 4 days in Step 1 and another 10 days in Step 2 of the evaluation process. Here is a review of FTMO and its main advantages and disadvantages.

I hope you found this information useful.
