Are performance accounts live?
We use live data for performance accounts. Initially they are in SIM but you still get paid the same way this is because many traders may blow a performance account quickly. So this is done to protect the company and you as a customer. One we see consistency we copy the trades via api in a prop account.
Once we see long term consistency you are placed into a live prop account.
