I'm wondering if anyone can help with some ideas on how to get funded for trading. If I have been positive trading every month for lets say 6 months to a year (on a sim account), are there any companies that would fund your trading and do a split of the profits? I know that TopStepTrading does something like this once you prove yourself, but I trade the DAX and that is not one of the markets that they trade. Any advise would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Given that index futures are highly correlated, I don't see why your DAX strategy won't work on other index futures that TST offers. Or are you using some model that for some reason only works on the 25 most liquid German stocks?

If your strategy fails miserably on other index futures, I'd seriously consider dropping it all together and creating something else. By the way, just wondering, have you performed backtests as to why your strategy only works on the DAX?

I think this warning is worth re-quoting:

Better have a big account if you trade the DAX. That's all.
