Do you meet the requirements for a refund deposit/rollover?

Yes, I have been careful about that. My only red parameter is the Average loser is bigger than the average winner.

If so, consider it an accomplishment and try again.

I am not sure I will try again, because I have doubts about the company. I tried it in the first place because I like a challenge and so many failed, so I wanted to measure myself against them. I achieved my goal of beating them and I have/had a fairly decent result, but I am not sure further tries would achieve anything more.

The point of course is not to "swing it" but to become a better trader.

I thought the point of the Combine was to find trading talents...

Why not use the last 3 days to do just what you said you needed to do--develop more discipline?

I guess, but I am not sure 3 days will teach me to do that. Actually, I am not even sure I will ever learn patience...

The thing with the Combine is, once the trader realizes that the goal of passing can not be reached, there isn't an incentive (beside the refund) to make the effort....Let's say at day #12 you realize that you are way behind the profit goal, you most likely start to swing it to try to catch up, and that's when you go into the red, which is good for TST, because you lose your refund chances....
