Here is my Combine trade report for today. I am pleased! Hoping that they will consider me for a funded account. They may ask me to go through Live Trader Preparation. I don't know. This is all new territory for me from this point on and I am looking forward to it.

Crude (CL)

I think they ask just about everyone to go through the live trader prep but the required goal is not as much. You'll be fine.

Congratulations on passing!

Way too many to count! However, I am extremely motivated this time as it looks like my wife is going to lose her teaching job next year due to funding cuts. I want to be trading live and able to cover her income so she doesn't have to go back to work and can enjoy more time with our daughter's during her senior year in high school.

After your first combine and the following ones, did they help you dial in your trading.? How?

I don't want to make intrusive comments, but putting that kind of pressure on yourself and your trading is generally a recipe for failure. Not always, but it usually is. It is a lot harder to make money in the markets when you HAVE TO, must easier when you don't.
Just my 2 cents, speaking from experience. Peace out.

Sim Trade 1

Took this sim trade with 5 contracts @ +10 ticks each this morning. I look for price to return to at least the 49.90 area. Anyhow, I am in and out.

I'm sure they would have had I asked. I have other resources.

Another Sim Trade

If I were live I would be done for the day before Crude opens. Very pleased!
