The goal is clear: Passing the TST Combine Step 1

I'm right at the beginning and you are invited to come along the journey.

A clean canvas as it is right now is a beauty for the mind.

The setup I'm using is Tradingview with their TST trader (Tradovate) platform.



This will be pretty much a risk balancing act to push the account enough without buring through the risk limit. I will trade one or two markets, mainly the ES and I trade price action setups. The DOM is just for execution.





I do record all my days, so let me know if you want see a video or number based stats as well.

Day 2:

Today was a much easier read than yesterday from a technical perspepctive. Possibly there is also a mental adjustment to the combine as well.

Good week, last week. Learned a lot. One of them was that journaling during the combine gives an extra layer of challenge and it is enough of a challenge on its on so I will continue the journal privately. I want to keep a good balance. I hope you understand.

Hi, may I ask what software do you use to record screen? And also, when you do, you select an area, the entire monitor ou only one window?
Thanks,

I got funded by Topstep early last year. I hit the goals in the 15 day period. I had to take a break for a while, had some family die and my dog die plus everything COVID last year, I couldn't put a single trade together and lost every day blew up and I bowed out until I felt my mindset was right again.
I'm going through it again now and trying to get back in the swing of things. It's tough coming back after a long break.

Good trading on your part, I don't think I've hit an 80% average W/L ever haha
I ditched TS Trader for Motivewave, that platform glitches out on me far too often, I just couldn't do it anymore. I liked the platform for the most part, anyway do you like it?
