If nothing else, you are showing that patience is key. Many people start a Combine (or open an account) and think they have to start trading immediately.

Good Luck!


Where in Ohio are you? I'm in Cleveland.

Thanks. Part of my issue is getting trades on my broker's dom and then over to TST. By that time, beans usually not sitting there waiting for me to enter before making the move.



I'm in NE Ohio as well.

Are you using market orders? Maybe switching to more limit or stop orders will help, especially if they are not close to current market.

Hi Kevin - I enter in a 'reactive' state - meaning I need bar closes before orders are placed. I am not entering at support/resistance levels that could be placed on the DOM in advance. Every 60 seconds I have a possible decision to make and then I place the order on my broker's DOM and then T4. And since beans wait for no man, just couldn't get over to the T4 quick enough.

But will start fresh Monday and try to get orders over there quicker.

No trades on T4. And that's a wrap.

It helps that the combine does not force you to trade any day the market is open, so I got a cushion still in terms of time. I do have to watch this though b/c on the last combine I backed myself into a corner and was forced to go max contracts the last 2 days. That plan did not work out so well.

Have a good weekend.

Beans continue to be a great daytrading market.
Working multiple platforms not the easiest thing, but I'll get it figured out. No filled trades on T4 today.

Well somehow I managed to get filled on a day where beans were just not agreeing with me. I thought I was in for 1 contract, but it was 2 so need to watch that closer. Back at it tomorrow.

I will be starting next week, probably Monday. Looking forward to it and the extra 70% off incentive helps.

Hi, good luck to you. Can you point me to where this 70% off is mentioned? Cant find it. Thanks a lot.

I got it via e-mail...

Join a Combine. Journal your trading days. Submit to a forum.
GET 70% OFF THE NEXT COMBINE OF YOUR CHOICE.

Our goal at TopstepTrader is for you to develop into a consistent, disciplined trader and earn a funded account. When you journal your daily trading, your streaming consciousness, and what you did right and wrong, you're creating an invaluable record for yourself. And when a community can share those journals - it brings a global group of traders together for easy strategy sharing, discussion, personal development and more.

So here's the deal - to encourage daily tracking, we want you to journal a Combine. We are going to do this on a rolling basis, so we're limiting the initial phase to the first 20 traders with approved forum links. If you're interested in tracking your trading on a forum, please email support@topsteptrader.com to ask for details. Please put "70% Combine Journal Discount" in the subject line.

So what happens if you pass your journaled Combine or earn a rollover? Great! In that case, we'll credit you 70% back of the Combine that you purchased and journaled.

"Public journaling is a great tool in not only developing the trader but the entire trading community." - Michael Patak, CEO

Please call us at 312.252.*9490 or email us at support@topsteptrader.com with any questions. And as always, trade well.

Had to call it early today, no trades in combine. This was a decent day that I should have gotten some fills on if I was paying attention better. Was preoccupied and then tuned into the TST squawk to learn about new combine rules.
