Are you still in the FTP @KahunaDog? Hope it is going well

No. I failed.
I didn't measure my risk of ruin appropriately(in retrospect and imo) for the FTP, though I believe I did for the Combine.
After some deliberation I will retry.

Don't let it get you down too much. It sounds like you already know what you would do differently next time. We have a saying in South Africa : "Give it stick!" meaning show it who is boss. Give it stick @KahunaDog!

Still plugging away working on it.
This looks interesting and if you buy 5 cpu licenses it's $225 or 1 @ $150. If anyone else is interested lmk, I am looking to buy this in the near future. It seems perfect for my needs and a great addition to money management. The risk/reward tool in nt8 is good, but this is great what I have been looking for, multiple targets, visual on p/L, ability to adjust size to % risk, etc.
Mod remove if necessary

ninZa.co: Risk-Reward Meter for NinjaTrader 8 & 7

this one is less visual and a bit different @ $97

This is a related product but $1200 and nt7

I'm going to try another Tst in April. I passed the 50k combine in October but bad money management, strategy and bad entries built up.
I might use ZN initially as the tick dollar amount is smaller. Zn, es and zb will likely be the main products with 6e and gc may show if my set up is right in them.
