Early access for testing

Oke, so I am ready with the first version, I will not uploaded yet to the indicators, because this is only for testing. It should be good, it is caching the news from forexfactory, so you do not need to worry about that. It has all the function what I have been told, check the screenshot. You can do filtering based on country or impact, or you can leave the all filter on. Also you can repaint/color the bar border, or background, or you can just simply turn it off.
It is using always the current week event, so going back in time is not possible with it only inside the current week.

Any advice, or bug is appritiated, please send me message, and keep this forum clear in case of bugs, in case of improvments, you can hit the idea here as well.

Please test the news time conversion, it should be good, but if not just let me know!

Matevisky, i mean what happens to daily loss limit when it comes to scaling up.TST website says by increasing cushion a trader can increase it's trading lots .but what happens to important factor of daily loss limit? will DLL increase as well? for example if you are trading a live funded 30k combine with 500$ DLL.if you can generate 4500$ you can use 5 lots as scaling plan explains.but what will be the DLL for this 5 lots ?

After 10 days you have to be in positive balance, that's all. If your balance +10000USD, and you are loosing 8000USD, they dont care, it is up to you

No DLL after 10 days as far as I know - only positive balance is the rule, but yes, better to ask the original source

really ? if there is no DLL after 10 days and if the only factor is ability of generating profit,it would make TST a great choice.however it seems only a few /rare live funded traders was able to scale up.

As far as I know yes. You can withdraw as much as you like but you have to manage your balance and trading

Slow motion day, chopped out

Eh, I chopped out, than I got some luck back, but not everything. Also I was inpatient because of the slow motion. Anyhow, all NQ trades was a small winenr, and I made 3 bad trade on YM, and I good one... If I would have followed my rule it would have been better, ofc there was some borderline trade as usual, but this is what it is...

aside from the fact that you should not hit zero balanced account,what parameters should be considered in balance ? what did you mean exactly?

Balance is your trading account size. First 10 days you are building up the balance, than you can trade as you like, ask them to modify the size based on scaling plan, or products. If you withdraw, they will withdraw there share, which is 20%. So in 10K account balance you can withdraw 1000USD, and you will recieve 800USD - 60USD withdraw fee, they will get 200USD your new balance will be 9000USD
