@garyboy275 Congratulation, it is very inspiring thread.
I went through it post by post. When i read it it feels like it is my journey.

I am currently taking combine too and following exactly the same steps as you are. I am suffering mentally as you described here. I hit my daily stop 3 times, since i started combine. I've been very close to fail it, only 300 dollars away.

After each time i hit that limit, I start my trading day with mentality that I failed and there is not much too loose now. i'm got so upset about it, that my mind become empty and I stating to execute my trades with one lot only. My concentration and execution become so perfect that i can see my account is recovering and have more buffer to play.

It is amazing to see that you actually achieved it and got funded. It leaves me some hope that i can break my bad habits and achieve it too.

Just need to get the monkey off my back

Congratulations garyboy275 !

So what happened since you passed the LTP ?
Did you get funded by Topstep Trading ?
If so, how did the live trading go ?
