Can you tell us about your trading process

Congratulations on hitting the profit target and getting funded.
Can you talk about what you are looking for in a potential trade.
What factors were in place when trades work and do not work?
What do you look for when in a trade that changes your view and exit?

I look at the same levels everyday, i trade both breakouts and reversals from those levels, most of the time the reversals since i find it harder to trade breakouts.

I work with fixed stops and targets all the time and most of the time i try to sit tight until my target or stop gets hit, however under some circumstances like fundamentals or lack of volatility i might exit earlier.

No, i still have the funded account, however i just didn't see the use of keep posting my PnL every day since i am not going to share my trading system/charts.

My next update will be when i make my first withdrawal or indeed do lose the account.
In the meantime i will be responding to any questions anyone has about trading with OneUp/MES.

I also just hit the profit target for the 250k account (however I still have to trade 6 days more).

Did you experience any hick-ups or issues during the funding process, or did everything go smoothly?

Just something for the other guys that are trying with the combine (applies also to topstep I guess):
I can recommend to donít trade the lot size you are allowed to. Risk management wise itís basically given that you will fail, if you donít have perfect entries.
Of the 25lots, that I was allowed to trade, I never exceeded 10 lots traded at the same time(most time traded 5).

Congratulations on reaching the target. No i never had any issues with the process to get my funded account. However i have never made a withdrawal before so can't comment on that.

I agree with not using the full trade size. I trade the 50K account and 90% of my positions are 1 contract, 10% are 2 contracts, never more.
