Since when honest criticism is blaming? And by the way if they listened to me, they would have more people passing and going Live. Oh but wait, that would cut down on income from fees....

I disagree with this logic. If a trader has a live 30k account and makes $250 net in a month, he will keep $162.50 and TST will keep $87.50 (the same monthly average for a 20-day 30k combine). Plus it is common for combiners to continually rollover their combines so they could pay for one combine and never pay for another one. TST has more to gain by finding (and funding) traders who will continually develop their upside potential than trying to string along aspiring traders at $87 a month.

And make no mistake, passing the Combine is nothing in itself. First, your backing isn't automatic, second, even once backed, until you established your safety pillow, you are not going to get any check from them. And that is the ultimate goal, not passing a paper trading competition.

Again, I disagree. The combine is a starting point. And no one is entitled to trade TST or PTP's money. It's not a right. The retail trader has very low odds of becoming a professional trader. TST is not in business to just give money away. It's pretty difficult to stay in business if that's their business model.

Maybe TST isn't a great fit for you. That's cool. Better to find that out now than later - for you and TST.

Best of luck in your pursuits.
