Looks like their 70% back for journalling effort is working well!

Trade to live. Not live to trade.

Moved to A TopStepTrader's Combine: Designed for Six Sigma.

As I understand this journal is for an offical record of the combine the original poster will undertake hence do not wish to add extraneous stuff without good reason.

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

I am going to be doing a 20 day combine.

Account Parameters
Starting Balance: $50,000
Max Position Size: 5
Daily Loss Limit: $1,000
Max Drawdown: $2,000
Objective: Profit $3,500 and adhere to the Combine Rules

Start date: 8/13/2013


I plan to just trade Soybeans futures doing this combine. I have done a couple other combines, but my focus there has been hit and miss since also trading a live account with Open ECry software. I'm hoping this public journaling will force me to focus on the combine better.

No trades, got software setup and did not like to start trading mid-day.
Good thing is you don't have to trade every single day the market is open, you do get flexibility so there's no need to rush IMO.

No trades on the TST account. Had a couple nice longs in the ZS today on my personal account but was not quick enough to get them into the T4 dom. In hindsight I could have traded longs later in T4 but it felt 'too late'.

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.
