Whenever you get a pass at something, you have to do something else harder, when you are doing a custom Combine. So I would say your profit target would go up significantly if they approve that plan....

My advice is pretty obvious, do the rollover. (and you can take breakeven trades too, they won't mess with your stats, but count as traded day, and costs only $5)

Why would it be fooling them? After all, at the end of the day you still have to make money and be profitable. On the other hand I had a Combine where all my stats were nice (except one) but I didn't...
