Combine Playground - TST Practice Run

Going to use this as a journal to keep me accountable as I practice for a TST Combine. Planning on starting an actual combine in a week or two, but going to use a demo account to hold myself to their guidelines to see how it turns out.

Will keep to the parameters of the $150k combine....

Starting Balance: $150,000
Duration: 10 days
Max Position Size: 15
Daily Loss Limit: $3000
Max Drawdown: $4500
Profit Target: $9000


Will be trading CL primarily, but some 6E and 6J. Doubtful, but possibly trading ES and NQ.

5 lots per trade max, with set targets and stop on each trade.

Focusing on TA, but of course will take upcoming news into account.

Not sure how much I will posting throughout, but will at least post an account summary at the end of each trading day.

Main objective will be avoiding this......

Day One


Overall, kind of a mess..... missed profit target on first CL trade by 2 ticks, then had it run back to get just a couple out of it. Missed trades, took one I knew I shouldn't have, but.... green day with $1337.50, so on pace so far.

Notes for next trading day:

- Less trades, be more selective
- Don't hesitate to take profit when PA stalls
- News may be a factor tomorrow, especially Crude Inventory of course.
