I hope you get to return to live trading before too long. I've never tried TST, but it does seem that the rules of the funded account are very tough to comply with, especially at the beginning.
As to your trading system : I trade ES, not NQ, but they are very similar, and some of my trades are like yours, i.e. fading levels based on OR, or IB., and measured move targets. I've found that observing the TICK helps a lot when choosing to enter or not, and gives me a higher win rate. Of course there are successful traders who never use it, and we all have to find our own way.
Best of luck.
The following user says Thank You to Stillgreen for this post:
By the numbers you've posted it looks like you were doing the $50K. Why not continue and take advantage of the full 10 trading days and the full $2K draw down?
EDIT: I read to the end of the thread after writing the above. I hope you still get the re-development opportunity? You'll bounce back, if you need any ideas on how to keep that consistency moving over to live, shoot me a message!
