My 30K Continuous Combine with Topstep Trader

I got started with the 30K Continuous Combine last week on Apr 21 2015. I have decided to document the journey to see how far I get and what it takes to become a funded trader. :-)

I made a post on my personal blog site about it here: https://passionforfutures.wordpress.com/2015/04/25/getting-started-with-topstep-trader/

After the end of first week (3 days of trading), so far so good. Here are the results:

I documented it on my personal blog.

------------
I started with the Continuous Combine on Apr 21 2015 with a 30K starting balance. Today is Apr 25 2015. So that marks the end of the first week of Combine – 3 trading days. Below are screenshots from Topstep Trader Dashboard showing my account status at the end of 1st week (3 trading days).

I think I did pretty good. NinjaTrader shows over 90% win rate. I did not configure NinjaTrader with commissions. Hence, it shows slightly more P/L but the Topstep Trader dashboard reflects the correct P/L since it shows net P/L after commissions, fees, etc.

Off to a good start, then. Good luck with this.

(Might it be possible or advisable to use a slightly bigger size of print on your blog? I can't easily manage print that small, and that's with a full-sized monitor: anyone with a small monitor/laptop/tablet may perhaps find that size nearly unreadable?)

I looked into it but unfortunately the custom theme I have on the blog isnt letting me change the font size. Thats kind of stupid though. :-( I guess you will have to increase the font size in your browser if its not readable.
