wow that sounds good. But I dont want to trade OPM other peoples money. haha.

no problem so far: TST has strict rules. Before you trade OPM you have to prove that you can trade...
Upon THEIR rules.
IF you are capable then it will be easy to be funded by TST.
I am not :-))) and I never tried.

GFIs1 wishes good luck

well what do you think. are you going for it. if they fund you what kind of money can you make. I would assume you get a percentage of profits. just wondering. I assume this is public info that the company puts out there. not looking for private info.

if you hope to trade OPM then I wish you all the luck in the world. I am sure you can do it.


Me neither. I am doing it because of strict rules even for trial. I might do one combine (the cheapest) later if I feel I have to. I recently switched to futures from fx (live) and I found out that during sim I am trading recklessly, like I was doing in fx demos when starting, so no point in doing them. Found out about TST and it helps me sim with a good MM mentality, feels like real money is in stake (that's why I consider the combine).

Was just replying to your comment about sim not feeling real whatever you do - same for me, not giving a recommendation to trade with them

I read so much negative opinions that I can not even begin to try sim trading. I am so turned off to it. I wish I could use it to help me trade. but when I go to make a trade I might enter and then later I get bored and forget about it and get out of the trade. My mind is not working too well.

If you want to have any chance you need an attitude adjustment. Despite what many say "Sim trading" , in my opinion, is essential for learning your market.

Maybe you are trying to trade using a method or market that doesn't suit your personality. Have you tried different instruments? There is a difference between the ES and crude. Bonds and Gold. Beans and currency. You need to look at them all and determine which contract has the liquidity you are comfortable with.

Have you tried different styles of trading? If you are bored maybe you are trying to trade too long of a timeframe?

You might try opening the smallest sized FX account and try trading that. You won't be risking a lot but having a few dollars on the line might keep you interested.
