Remote Trader Programme

The Blueprint Remote Trader Programme is designed to allow traders to work from a destination of their choice whilst they trade or learn to trade in the FX Markets. It is a great opportunity to start and develop your career as a trader. You will improve your knowledge on the global macro economy, technical analysis, risk management and trading discipline. The Blueprint Capital Remote Trading Programme is designed to help participants become profitable traders and ultimately join the company’s FX team as a full-time Trader. Remote traders are compensated on a profit split basis. They keep 50% of their profits once they hit their account target of five percent (i.e. 500 pips on leverage of 1:1). The stop-loss for all remote traders is -10% of their account.
