MyFundedFX has completed integrating cTrader following
weeks of turmoil in the industry. According to a statement on X, the proprietary
trading platform will be "stress testing it and ensuring it is bug free."

to go live with CTrader powered by Purple Trading SC. We have also been handed

Adjusting to the Transition

On February 19, MyFundedFX, announced that it was
restricting US traders effective immediately. The platform exclusively restricted
users in this region to trading DXtrade challenges.

Besides that, the firm asked US traders to prepare
for a migration of their accounts from MetaTrader to DXtrade. This migration

Currently, most proprietary trading platforms are
completing their migration to new platforms driven by MetaQuotes' tightening
regulations, especially concerning US compliance.

These changes affecting the industry began when
major brokerage firms like Blackbull Markets and Purple Trading terminated
partnerships with proprietary trading platforms due to compliance concerns.

Blackbull Markets' decision to sever ties with
Funding Pips, a Dubai-based trading firm, underscored the severity of the
regulatory challenges faced by the industry. MetaQuotes' actions have resulted
in a broader diversification trend among proprietary trading platforms, as they
integrate alternative trading platforms such as cTrader and Match-Trader.

Adapting to Regulatory Pressures

Some platforms, including The5ers and FTMO, have
halted services to US-based clients altogether, reflecting the broader industry
response to regulatory shifts.

Currently, many firms are dealing with the
aftermath, either ceasing operations or scrambling to find alternative
solutions. At Finance Magnates, we have created a live table to track the
changes by major proprietary trading companies.
