I can't believe that Martha does not have some sort of marketing angle in this. I mean trading a ridiculous number of cars for a beginner to draw viewers to her thread, posting affiliate links (until Mike makes her remove them), and I heard that she runs a chat room on the side, or at least used to.....

I've got to giggle at your skepticism, BeachTrader.

If you don't put in work, the commitment, the passion to what you do in trading, then you're not going to amount to anything. I can see that you pontificate without doing any due diligence with half-truths. That, to me, is being the ultimate sleaze bucket.

Responding to your thread isn't worth my time. I recommend that you return the favor and ignore this thread, altogether; especially, if you're not going to read each post.

Why should I defend myself, beyond what I've already stated? Does anyone read the entire threads, before jumping in?
Do you like the sound of your "voice"? It's inane.

Pedro40,

You are absolutely, dead wrong about what TsT will not let me do.

Sure they do, but not right from the start, and that was my point:

"Once your account balance is greater than $10K, you can request more buying power. "

Here is their upscaling strategy:

Funded Trader: Scaling Plan ? Help & Feedback Center

And LTP is not voluntary, but pretty much mandatory. So once again, there was absolutely no advantage for you to make a custom combine for 35 cars. I am not sure why they let you do that, but I guess they thought: "Well, if the lady wants to swing, let her swing."

The link, which you provided Predro40, is a quick "funded-account" roundup. It's NOT indicative of a custom combine - the title of this thread.

I will try it for the last time:

It doesn't matter if you pass a 150K Combine or a 475K Combine, because after sucessfully passing the LTP, you will only get a 150K funded account, and you have to earn your right to trade bigger than 15 cars size. After you build a 10K cushion, you can ask for more cars. That is how it works.

So there is no point in customizing such a large Combine, unless you want some bragging rights. But since this is Sim so bragging is meaningless and in this case, costly...

Excerpt from your trading plan:


MarthaChiriboga View Post
I also have the following rules to follow, just to spice things up:

This is my first combine and I've given TsT about $800.00 as a deposit. Although, the screenshot says that I have ten days; I actually have 30-days to complete the mission.

I've only started learning about this thing called, "Futures Trading", on 3 January 2014.

I've taken copious notes and spent countless hours reviewing videos by my Guru, Gabriel Brent.

I've promised to gift him a TESLA (Black Exterior with an all-Red Interior) sedan, when I generate my first $3MM. This will be my homage. Watch and See!


Well...I think I'm just going to lean back and relax while I'm looking forward how things will develop here and how you're doing on this extraordinary combine.

However, I wish you best of luck on your 'mission'!

I spoke with Conor, at TsT, and he advised against getting into these arguments as most people are not worth a response and anonymity does weird things to people. He confirmed that I will be funded with more buying power than a normal $150K funded account due to the Custom Combine that I negotiated.

Please continue to argue for YOUR limitations, not mine. The more people who post a response, the higher this thread stays on the board. So, thank you!

The simulation to real money shock


First I want to wish you best Martha... on trying to pass your combine!

I have never tried it myself due to all the people I hear pass it only to get another test they must pass then I never hear from them again. I don't like ambiguous challenges...

I personally think your odds of success increase greatly with the ability to add in more contracts using (position sizing). I can sim trade the CL every day and make 5-20 k using 5-15 contracts. But when I have tried it with real money its like some one is sticking there hand inside my stomach and sqeezing my intestines. And with that kind of pressure its a loosing battle.
Its a lot harder with position sizing just using 1-2 contracts you have to have more perfect entries and exits and that takes a lot extra skill but not as hard to transition mentally to real money because a lot less is at stake. I personally trade Micro Forex and that is very easy to use position size adjusting in and not risk a lot if your having a bad day reading the market(great for beginner traders too).
I hope when you finally pass it you can somehow get over the real money pressure syndrome that keeps getting me with large size.


Good Luck Quantismo
