All this being said, you can still pass the combine scalping with a few contracts if you do the $50K one. I prefer the 30K for many reasons but even then, you can do two lots and scalp a 8-10 ticks every day and make the profit objective.

The problem is the same as always, sticking to your trading model, maintaining discipline and not over trading. If the parameters are more difficult, the trader must adapt. Its no different than adapting to changing market conditions. You just have to figure out how you will approach the new conditions and work that plan.

To for instance, there was about 20-30 ticks available in the last hour or so of the trading session. It was slow to be sure but available.

Agreed, although the market (NQ) tended to behave like watching paint dry during the last days in the afternoon sessions.

At least with TST, they tell you the conditions are changing before they actually do. The market has no such mercy

So true...
