T4 trading platform not user friendly

Hey Mike, just in case I don't get a chance to ask this during the webinar, could you please ask Michael why he uses T4 trading platform that everyone hates. I think they will see more participation in their programs if they moved to something more user friendly, like ninjatrader. I hear T4 platform sucks to say the least since you cannot do multiple targets and all of that good stuff.

Thanks,

Kulu

T4 is a very widely used platform on the floor. But my understanding is they are adding other platforms to the mix, I will try to ask him.

Questions

Dear Mike,

First of all, thank you for providing this webinar!

Unfortunately, it's very likely that I can not participate in this, but I'm looking forward to viewing the recording.

Anyway, if there is a chance, could you please ask two questions about the programs of TST?

My questions are:

1. One of their scouting requirements is that traders "trade all required days of the Combine". Does that mean, that if one is a swing trader and gets only, for instance, signals on 6 of the 10 combine days and meets the profit target with that, does he have to trade on the remaining 4 days as well in order to meet the aforementioned requirement? If so, would it be okay to quickly jump in and out just to get fills for these days (which obviously would not be part of the swing trading plan)?

2. During the combines it is required that positions are closed before the electronic close. These can be reopened if trading is resumed. Is this rule also a requirement for funded traders? I guess not, but I thought it would be good to clarify.

I've listened to the first webinar of TST on futures.io (formerly BMT) but did not hear anything related to the above questions.

Thank you in advance!

Regards,
k

Hello Karoshiman,

For your first question the answer would be yes. Yes, you are allowed to do so and a trading day counts at the time you enter the market on any of your traded products. But you have to be carefull, as you have to pass the statistics, a short profitable trade may not change your account balance but have an impact on your statistics.

For the second question, some of the live traders have the right to leave positions opened through the clearing, but it is as an exception, it can be done also only in case that this live trader has already made some profit comparing to the starting balance of his account, but it is really not common in TST, even for the live traders.

I hope I can be of any help, if you have questions do not hesitate to contact me!

Have a good evening.
