What's that "external" marker meaning?
(I only know that from my positions being liquidated due to DLL, unfortunately^^)

Anyways, congratulations!! Well done, well done.
Now you experienced the power of holding a winning trade - it can even get you funded

Looking forward to hearing from your journey

Well done, not sure how I got on the mention list here as I can't remember doing anything really special but regardless, I'm super glad you passed.....

And I have a question;

The 30K combine has a 3 lot max size but the chart you posted showed 4 entries and 4 exits. Did you break a rule and have more on that you were supposed to? Or am I missing something?

One last thing, that last trade demonstrates how its easier to leverage time than your account and while you traded at least max size, the duration and distance of the trade is what made it work so darn well.

Congrats, its been a long time coming.

Thank you, Brian! The fourth lot was taken on the NT Sim101 account which shows up as the fourth trade with its exit at 53 (on the 70-tick chart in an earlier post).

Thank you!

I took the first two trades of the day on another computer and they hit their respective stops. They are the 'external' ones. The three lot trade was taken on the second computer. I almost goofed it up because I was on Sim101 when I entered with one lot, realized it, changed to TST account and then took three one lot trades in quick succession.

I will keep that in mind.

This time around I set the stop 10-ticks above that range, and set my target at a logical place ( slightly more than 25-ticks) where it might sell off to try to form a double bottom (this was 35-ticks away but 25 ticks was a reasonable target) since it was so close to that magnet.
