Here is my trading journal. I am developing a momentum auto strategy to trade in the combine. As of today, I am in a continuous combine, and am positive after 10 days discretionarily trading it. I traded 2 or 3 days in sim that would have gotten me into LTP if I had traded those days in the combine instead, so I am off sim and will only trade the strategy going forward in the combine. Preferably, I want to trade the remaining time on this one with the auto strategy. I am trying to figure out how to get the orders accepted by Rithmic. I tried using the auto bot, but the orders were rejected.

Just a little easier than going through the whole thread, although that is fun too
I am interested in learning more about Discretionary Trading System vs. Mechanical Trading Systems, Thanks.
I found a good base strategy for a momentum/slope system that is working good in markets where the trend has started. I can either run it as an auto bot with a small profit target, or use it to plot my own levels and then wait for inflections at those zones when my strategy kicks in. I am very excited to finally be trading the auto bot in the TST combine. It has been testing well this past week. But everyone has been doing well this past week with all the great volatility. So I thought I would make sure include the Randy McKay trend filter requirement for the strategy. I'll update my journal to let you know how it is going. I would like to use a bot strategy in the $150K combine across several asset classes and markets.
