Congrats.....there's still a ways to go after the combine before you are trading live money...just be sure to keep your focus....you're gonna need it.

The End

ok blew the account today.....got a little greedy I guess trying to recover from a loosing trade....I'm not going to enter another combine......while the TST platform is great and has a excellent community....I think I will trade the ACD method on my live account......With sim and combine trades I profited over $4,000 using this system, I was well over 80%....so instead of spending another month in the combine I feel that I can spend that time on my live account doing exactly what I have been doing in the combine.......I will never risk more than 5% of my account

Sorry to see it end this way.

Best of luck in your own trading.

Bob.

Did you trade differently to normal because you tried to meet some Combine criteria (apart from profit)?

Otherwise, if it was emotional trading, do you think your live account will withstand the risk of it happening again better than sim or another Combine?

Maybe also reconsider if it's useful counting sim money you haven't put in your live account. There is a reason it was sim and it's better to think about that experience as a stage towards your next goal. Your performance may be quite different next month as you know.

You were showing great results. But I'm not sure you are making right conclusions about your progress.

In any case, best of luck!

Sucks, mainly cause you proved me wrong and everyone who read that has to die!!



Sucks for sure, emotional days or the fear of them are what's holding me back currently, too many times I've wiped out 3 months of steady profit in a single well trade, but learn and move on.


Someones got to beat a combine and go on to make actual cash please!!
