Long time to see you Mr. Anderson, right? After a lots of learning curve, and going up and down, mostly break even, I have realized I still need lots of learning, to sharp my trading skills. I had 3 mental breakdown, for 1-2 days, when I was feeling that, I would never able to learn how to be a profitable trader, but these days past quickly, and I was more and more happy, to reopen charts, redo analysis on the market, and sitting in front of the computer, and trade again and again.
Anyhow, based on my analysis, and reading a lots of trade psychology books, I have been realized, my biggest enemy is myself, so I have to handle this issue somehow. When I am on the winning streak, I am doing a decent winning, but if I am on the loosing streak, than I am not able to stop myself, and trying to fight back to the market. So what I am winning in 4 days, I can loose it in 1 day very easly, without any good reason to loose.

After this I believe topstepstrader combine opportunity is tailored just for me. It will help me to stay disciplined, and also give me opportunity to proove my strength. If I am not able to do this challange, than I need to learn more and more. So I will do the prospect challange (really size doesnt matter, it is only a question of risk management, so no need to go higher as a starter). It will start on monday. The good thing is that, I can use NT, the bad side, I am not able to trade my favorite instrument, but at least I will have some challange.

The plan is simple. Stay focused, shoot when it is necessery, and wait, when I dont have the edge. I will trade YM as an alternative for TF, and I will look for CL, and GC trades, but only if they are coming for me. The basic principle, to doing daytrades, mostly with 1:3 R/R, with 8SL to 25-35TP based on the market conditions.
I canse of YM I am planing to use 2-3 contracts, in case of CL or GC only 1.

My best guess is that, I will make this challange, but which makes me nurveus, I havent find any journal in futures.io (formerly BMT) where somebody made it, and got the founded trader status. Ofc trading is like yoga, you are doing it yourself, but statistically speaking I wil fail this Anyhow time will tell

Everything working smoothly, as they promised by Topsteptraders. I've received the login information yesterday for T4. The same logins are working Ninjatrader as well. All what you have to do is follow a nice guildline to configure your ninja settings and make her ready to connect to TopStep - NinjaTrader Connection Instructions ? Help & Feedback Center . The whole process was 3 mins (ofc you need multibroker license to NT). So I've been tested the historical data download, checked the account ballance (which is 30K right now on ninja as well), so I so no issue. The whole process at Topstep seems to me very-very professional. Here is a quick screenshot, see you in the afternoon at the market open.

Hi matevisky

Congrats and good luck to your 10day combine.
Of course there are a lot of journals on combines and even a thread of passed traders:

Just search for TST or Combine and browse through actual and older journals.

Thank you, ofc I hope luck will not be a pro/cons factor during my trades. I've already checked out a lots of journals believe me, when I say it is hardly to find a journal when a novice trader passed this test like me, but I believe it is a very good thing to have this opportunity, because it could give you a clear picture where are you for real. As I said time will tell, and it would be nice to see myself after a lots of learning to prove my self on a real battlefield...

Thx again to check in!

Szia János, köszi! (Hi János , thx! easy hungarian translation )
Speaking frankly I was not disappiered, I was trading the only thing was that I was realizing my biggest enemy during my trades is myself. I believe everyone has his own demons, and my biggest one is sitting on the same chair, so after a lots of going up going down, and reading books around trade pscihology, I've realized I need help or different approach. As I stated doing the trades, and learning is make me happy, so I believed that if I will able to find my on way to be constantly profitable
I will try to keep you update everyone this time

I made my first day with a win.
1. I thought the market would go higher, I was not realizing we are hitting the stars, so I was not got out, and change my view on the market to short it. Anyhow I got some damage, but nothing serius
2. Starting to belive the market will go down, but eventually it was a little bit early, because the market was w8ing the news to hit. So I got out before the news. It is a 2 folded game, and I am not a gambler, or newstrader, to do scalping on news
3. Bit risky trade, but it was a nice DB area, for a pullback till the blue area. I made my scalp on it, unforcuneatly, it would have been better to take profit earlier
4. Made my trend trade, and I was sitting back with a winner
---
Overall good day, a winner one. Trending is not my strength, but not my weakness anymore

Yesterday during I was doing my daily analysis on the market, I've been realized, I made some unnecessery error yesterday, which have been saved me a lots of money:
- Forcing the market to turn up, when it is already going down, based on all sign (2 gifts)
- Forcing the market to start trend, before the news (1 BE run)

Anyhow, it was a good day, once again I am not good in trend For day 2 I will start to trading with 3 contract with SL 7-8 tick. That was my original plan, so after the welcome shot, I believe I can start it. Here is the TST report. comission is a killer in case of YM compering with CL, GC, or TF
